A staff of sacred power engraved with ancient writing. It can inflict silence when used to strike an opponent, but also allows its owner to cast silence by using green magic.

Etymology Edit

Runes are the letters in a set of related alphabets known as runic alphabets, which were used to write various Germanic languages before the adoption of the Latin alphabet and for specialized purposes thereafter. Historic anthropology regarding the Germanic and Norse peoples that used runes also note that the language was also highly used in magical practices related to these cultures, whether it be in divination, enchantment, and incantation.
