Dragon Rune Definitions
by Isedon Goldwing
Fog Dream. Represents the mists of all that was, is, or will be, and
made of raw chaotic energies, Ratanen is the substance of dreams and
can be called upon and shaped by those with the knowledge to do so to
create or destroy anything. These are the fogs between times, and the
underlying force that keeps a time from stagnating and fading away.
Phonetic value "k"
- Dragon Queen. Rune of Tiamat, goddess whose body creates the sky and
the earth and ruler of dragons. By shaping the chaos by knowledge of
will, she creates times and those who inhabit the times. Drakani is
useful for taping into Ratanen and glimpsing into the chaos for
answers, or to request an audience with Tiamat. Phonetic value "d"
- Flowing Knowledge. Rune of the Akasha, holding all knowledge.
Understanding this rune comes over time, but is only pure knowledge and
on its own can be dangerous to use without wisdom. Best used in
conjunction with Drakani or Shoren to understand the Chaos in the
mists. Meditate on this rune with a question in mind to assist access
to the Akasha. Phonetic value "s"
- Dream Dancing. Guidance through the chaos and the rune to weave
existence from dream material. Rune of creation and calling the first
dragons called from the mists. The next nine runes are of the more
common dragons that were formed. Phonetic value "i"
the following dragon types listed, are not all that exist, but are

- Cloud Cycle. The year rune. Time created as a byproduct of
consciousness is represented in this rune. Ta'kaya represents the
cycles in nature, the way things operate from year to year and repeat
themselves. Phonetic value "o"
- Great Knowledge. Still in times where chaos is very prominent, the
"Mage" rune is that of beings just learning to understand the ways of
magic, and attempting to shape it to their will. Energies are strong,
but often lack precision control. Phonetic value "sh"
- Tainted Storm. The increase in the use of magic in a chaotic
environment attracts yet more chaos, twisting and warping the minds of
those who come in contact with its energies. Deigomah is necessary for
the development of the fresh existence, bringing with it change and
creativity. Phonetic value "ng"
- Dance of Blades. Filled with newfound knowledge, Deigomah leads the
beings in existence to Athinan. Athinan is the rune of wars and
conflicts necessary to carve and shape the populace so that balance
might finally take hold. Phonetic value "a"
- Purity and Taint. Kaegos is the balance that rises from the ashes of
the conflicts in Athinan. Chaos and Order are equal here, and the
existence can thrive. Phonetic value "b"
- Strong Leader/King. The rune of the champion. A product of balance,
the champion of Thaenrathi governs justly and the presence of this
leader makes room for the time of order to take place. Phonetic value
- Dream Forge. The once chaotic mists are deeply forged into the
stiffness of law and order. Many thrive in times of peace and justice,
but little new is discovered, created, or found.
- Flowing Wisdom. The quiet brought by Athanen gives time for many to
reflect and ponder on the vast knowledge’s and experiences that have
gone before them. Wisdom develops quickly and many are enlightened
through these events. Phonetic value "y"
- Heart's Dream. Many of the enlightened find others along a similar
path, and they pair together with each other as companions during their
walk through life. Those dragons joined during Nanen often find their
way back to each other over many incarnations time and again. Phonetic
- Powerful Heart Fire. Those that still retain a spark of the chaos
within themselves may yet experience passion tempered by wisdom. The
passion of Ionali often comes to those that did not pair during Nanen,
and grant the dragon insight to find and experience the purpose in
their lives that they were meant for, yielding a fullness of life, and
a reason to remain on their current plane of existence. Phonetic value
Dragon Beauty. All who have experienced Nanen or Ionali, share a bond
with each other, and many work and live together in unity, each
providing as they can to the community. Despite the tiny amounts of
chaos still around, the dragons coexisting during Drakaneal achieve
much creativity in that which they do. The remaining sparks of chaos
are shared and nurtured by all united in the state of bliss and
relaxation while they can, for many are beginning to prepare for the
coming times of transition. Phonetic value "v"
- Cycles of Action. Zhukaya, the rune of justice manifests strongly
during this time, cleaning up many of the unresolved issues, for good
or ill. The results of the lives of all return to them, lessons are
dealt, rewards enjoyed, some will carry over to the next incarnation,
but much is resolved here. Phonetic value "j"
- Sky Dream. The progression to the astral plane, and eventually the
next incarnation, or direct manifestation on a separate plane than the
current one. A time of nostalgia, many who experienced Nanen will meet
again, others will contemplate this life on the astral for a time,
until they are ready to incarnate once more. Phonetic value "g"
Hurricanes Dance. The long subdued chaos begins to seep out, and roils
forth to consume the order it finds so distasteful, once more making it
part of the timeless fogs. The plane is wiped clear, and ready for the
next being to shape it to their will. Phonetic value "u"
