Rune caster tutorial

Runes:

Oss: Pulls the user through space towards the heavens.
Reid: Sends the user on a journey into the depths of the earth (Liable to get you stuck in rocks)
Gyfu: Randomly grants a valuable or worthless gift, depending on chance.
Wynn: Brings a little bit of delicious joy into the world.
Hagall: Winter's chill descends upon the area around the rune.
Isa: Channels the power of biting cold to freeze water solid.
Jeran: Calls upon the fertile land to grant a bountiful harvest.
Eiwaz: With the power of the earth, grows a tree from the ground.
Tyr: Fires a sudden barrage of arrows from midair.
Odal: Forms a protective shelter to shield the caster within.
Dagaz: Call back the sun to drive away the darkness of night.

1) The first step is to mine out the shape of the rune, like below.




All runes fit inside a 5x7 block boundary, and they can be oriented both North-South and East-West. Vertical Runes will not work, but they may in the future! The rune in the example is Isa. Yes, it's just a 7 block long line.


It is just as easy to build the rune above ground as well, but it'll make step 3 a tiny bit harder.


2) Fill in the shape of the rune with a valid rune making block.





The valid blocks to make a rune can be divided into two categories, Temporary and Permanent.


Temporary:

Sandstone (24)

Double Step (43)

Brick (45)

Mossy Cobblestone (48)

Clay (82)

Netherrack (87)

Soul Sand (88)


Permanent:

Lapiz Lazuli Block (22)

Gold Block (41)

Obsidian (49)

Diamond Block (57)

Glowstone (89)


The blocks in the 5x7 area around the rune cannot be rune making blocks, even if they aren't in the shape of the rune. You couldn't, for example, place a Glowstone rune surrounded by sandstone, the rune wouldn't work.


The blocks in the permanent category are much rarer, and for good reason. With the permanent blocks, you can make runes which you can reliably use over and over. They can burn out though, see below.


3) Place a torch at each corner of the 5x7 area





I used regular torches in the tutorial, but you can also use Redstone Torches as well. Whichever you decide to use, all torches need to be the same type. The torches will be consumed when you use the rune. There are significant benefits to using Redstone Torches over normal torches:

-Redstone Torches have a 50% to not burn out a temporary rune, normal Torches will always burn it out.

-Regular Torches have a small chance to burn out a permanent rune, Redstone Torches will never do so.

When a rune is burned out, all the rune making blocks will turn to cobblestone.


4) Place down a torch in the center to activate the rune!



The torch you place in the center has to match the torches at the corners. Each rune will have its own individual effect.


The Isa rune I used creates that pyramid of ice seen there, but other runes could do more useful things. The torches were consumed in the rune making process, and as you can see, the smooth stone (reminder: no longer valid rune making block) of the rune burnt out and turned into cobblestone. To use the rune again, I would have to mine out the cobblestone and rebuild it.

It's very simple to use the enchanter. Just create a rune like normal, and place a torch on each corner. Instead of placing a torch on the center though, right click the center block of the rune with the tool you want to enchant. If you can place the rune you drew on the tool you're holding, then it will enchant it. If not, you will receive a message letting you know it didn't work. Tools have to be at least iron quality to enchant, so wood/stone won't work.
