carve rune <object> - carve a rune into an item
Carving and binding runes to objects lends some of the power of the
rune to the item, and indirectly, to the user of a runed item. Wood
is the easiest material to carve on and requires no additional skill.
This skill also allows you to carve runes into objects made from roots,
wax, resin or fruit.
While not exactly carving, the process of embroidering runes onto
clothing is similar enough that it can be done if you are familiar
with the 'tailoring' skill.

force specific runes. The geometry, history, and other ineffable
aspects of an item may serve to make it amenable to certain types of
runes but not others.
Embedding runes into an item is a fairly time consuming and magic
It should be noted that runes can only be added to finished crafts.
Crafting alters the magical properties of objects, and the mere
act of crafting can physically damage any runes on an item.
The firebrand, scrimshaw, petroglyph and inlay runes skills allow
you to carve runes into a wider range of materials.
