Runes

back >>>
Casting Runes has been used as a form of divination since the fourth century. Letter-like symbols were inscribed on small stones and then cast out and interpreted much like Tarot cards are done today. With the emergence of Christianity, Runes came to be seen as pagan. Consequently Rune Casting was repressed. Today using Runes as a method of fortune telling is becoming more and more popular. 

It's the graphic quality of the symbols that most appeals to me and the desire to place them in a setting the speaks a bit of antiquity.
