Language Dwarven Runes
Dwarven Runes are not the written form of the Dwarven language. In fact, there is no spoken version of the Runic language. There are 66 Runes, and each has a name and a numeric value, but a Runic “word” cannot be read aloud in the traditional sense. “Reading” runes by speaking their names and thinking that means anything, is like lining up a series of paintings, reading their titles in order and thinking that means the same thing as the row of paintings.
Runes spoken aloud lose all meaning. They only have meaning and power when they are written (or better, carved). To “read” them aloud, they must be read and understood, then the reader may explain the meaning in whatever spoken language they know.
In Dwarven society, all important documents, religious texts and magical formulas are written in Runes.
Note that Runic is considered a distinct language from Dwarven and must be taken as such.
