Master Dragon Kai

"I see not with my eyes
but with my dragon's soul
the fang of which I strike
is one my dragon owns
I am his vessel, He is my will
In battle we are one, in mastery and skill."

Runecaster Apprentice

The Runecasters are a particularly unique school of magic. While other schools tune in with their elements to focus on which spell to cast and draw their energy from raw wells of mana present in the nexuses of which their elemental ley lines intersect, Runecasters call upon ancient texts of lore once forgotten to literally spell out the magical spells that they cast. The source from which they draw their power from are the runestones they graft onto their garments. Runestones are artifacts of mysterious origin with the unique property of absorbing raw mana and storing them. Due to being exposed to mana from many different nexuses, the mana contained within these stones are of every element at the same time. Attempting to cast magic using the raw mana stored in these stones without precaution have lead to unsavory resolts, the worst case being all the mana released burning the caster to a crisp. Runecasters on the other hand use the ancient texts to call upon a specific strain of elemental energy, use the words of those once known to command the mana itself and manifest as a spell of the caster's choice.

Runecasting isn't much different from one's spoken tongue in the sense that each runeword corresponds to either a spell base, spell attribute and spell form. A fully formed runespell is akin to a fully formed sentence. The more runewords a caster unlocks, the more powerful a spell he can cast. The more creative and brilliant of Runecasters have done what other schools of magic have not, that is to mix elemental magic. The art of mastering runecasting has its difficulty lie in the rigidness of the form, grammar and pronunciation of runewords. Many neophytes have fallen victim to their own spells miscast. Despite the meticulousness of the process, those who persevere to master the tongue of those once known have attained mastery of a deadly branch of magic that's truly their own. F rom freezing flames to lightning familiars, a Master Runecaster is as deadly as the master of his vocabulary.
