There is nothing
like making something with your own two hands and being able to say 'I
made this'. This is especially true when making your rune set or any magical
item, because when you make something you have put a part of yourself,
your essence, into the creating and creating is magic.
You should be able
to make a rune set even if you have never done anything like this before.
It's not that difficult, it just takes time and patience. So be brave and
give it a try, I guarantee that you will find this a worthy undertaking.
