Each rune has an equivalent letter in the modern alphabet, which can be used to spell out words example below spells Draco although the C has been replaced with a K due to the fact that C is not represented in my runes.
To make this word in to a bind rune you would place each rune on top of each other to create a unique personal rune. (as Below)
Another way of making rune talisman is to create a sigil –
sig·il (sjl, sgl)
1. A seal; a signet.
2. A sign or an image considered magical
The basic idea behind a sigil is that the original idea is trap until release so the original idea should be forgot before releasing, so you need a way of encoding the sigil with the desired information. Random patterns are often used in creating a sigil so there meanings remain unknown to others. For those that wish to use runes in talismans the bind rune is often used but there is another way of encoding a sigil using runes with out showing them.
So how do you use a rune without using a rune? well you use it position. Runes are made up of three Aett’s the first row Heimdal’s aett the second Tiw’s aett and the final Aett Grimnirs aett each Aett or row contains 8 runes (see example).
In this example we will still use Drac(K)o which contains 5 letters so I have drawn 5 lines outward from a single point and on each line I have made marks to the left of the line the Aett number (1,2 or 3) and on the right the position of the rune between 1 and 8.
Another way is to use a straight line above the line the aett number then below position of the rune in that aett.
You are only limited by your creativity when creating a sigil so have fun creating.
