How to make a runestone:  Runestone creation is a fairly simple procedure, and can be done in one of two ways.  A caster may purchase runestones that are already prepared for scribing from an alchemist shop or wandering merchant, or they may prepare an item (like a smooth stone) for scribing themselves by pouring an aish'vrak potion on it.  Once they have a prepared item, they'll need to have a brush and ink, and DIP MY BRUSH IN MY INK.  Then DRAW {rune} RUNE [ON {runestone}] [WITH {runebrush}] while holding the prepared item and the brush.
