Rune stones, (sometimes cards), are used as tools of divination; a way to predict one’s future. Rune Stones come in a set of 24 ancient alphabetic symbols. They can be made of different materials, but the ones made of wood or glass are the most common and attractive. Runes are usually kept in a pouch or box and they usually come with a book of instructions defining the symbols.

Ideally, runes are cast on an East-West axis or facing the sun. A white cloth is laid down and used to determine the direction of the casting. From here the focus should lie on the pressing question.
After casting the stones onto the cloth the ones which have fallen the right side up are read. Depending upon whether the rune is reversed or not the rune stone meanings will be interpreted accordingly.
