Thank you for the video Direwolf20
If you have any servers running this mod and would like a little publicity, pm me and I might just add them to this post
Modpack requests: chan If you want to add this to a modpack there are only three rules: Post it here, credit this thread, and make your pack cool.
So this mod allows you to draw runes on the ground physically and outside the crafting gui. Depending on what pattern you draw and what you give as a sacrifice, something magical will happen.
Please do read the Getting Started section for a more detailed description on how to do everything.
To see all the possible runes, download the mod and flip through the Tome! There are a lot of them!
Major Changes in v1.3.1
-(UPD) Updated to MC1.5
-(TWK) Ruts glow when filled with light-emitting blocks
-(ADD) Beacon (torch) rune now turns off when powered by redstone signal.
-(TWK) Scrolls now place slower if in survival (hold down right click)
-(ADD) Added Leap I, Leap II, Void I, Bounce I, Blink I, Blink II, Foresight I, and Return I Inscriptions to the official release.
Make sure you check out the testpack! Some cool stuff has been added there too!
-Split off the mod's default runes!
Note that now there is a core download as well as a few others. This is to make it easier to use rune packs especially if you want to get rid of mine. It isn't difficult at all, you just have to install Both the CORE and the DEFAULT downloads. The core has all infrastructure and mechanics for the mod while the Default Pack has just all the standard runes and things that you know and love.
The Runic Tome:
The Runic Tome can be crafted by putting any dust on top of a book.
The dusts' recipes are shown in the video above
Crouch + Right-Clicking will allow you to view all the runes and their information.
It should provide you will all that you need to know to use the runes properly, but if they don't you can always check back here.
Right-clicking on dust on the ground will activate its rune (if there is one)
In order of least valuable to most valuable:
2xTall Grass or Saplings or Leaves or Seeds + 1xCoal = 8xPlant Runic Dust
2xPlant Runic Dust + 1xGunpowder = 12xGunpowder Runic Dust
3xLapis + 1xCoal = 8xLapis Runic Dust
3xLapis Runic Dust + 1xBlaze Powder = 12xBlaze Runic Dust
To craft a tome, just put any dust onto a book.
Place dust by right clicking.
Remove it by left clicking.
Remove all dust in a square at once by holding down left click.
You can place 16 (4x4) dust pieces onto a single block
You do not need to worry about rotation or orientation, you should just be able to plop down the pattern anywhere you want
When throwing sacrifices onto a rune, the items will stick to it, you have to be a lot closer to pick it up
This is to reduce the frequency of accidentally picking up items you are trying to use as sacrifices
To activate a rune, either right click it with a Runic Tome, or supply a part of it with a redstone signal
When a rune is activated, it will glow white while it starts up. If you have the sacrifices right, it will turn red and continue with its functions. If you get the requirements wrong, it will quickly just turn to grey after activating.and let out a puff of smoke.
If you activate a rune and it goes straight to grey, then you got the design wrong.
The Runic Lexicon is a way to read the runic tome and the list of runes without needing to return back to this forum page
I plan to add a way to right click with paper to get a single use instant-rune-writing scroll but as of right now that is not implemented
Right Clicking turns the page, Left Clicking turns it back
Hammer & Chisel:
Certain runes require an area to be specified so the rune knows what to affect. Right clicking on any normal block (modded or not) will carve it. Use the hammer&chisel to etch out these areas.
Blocks can be carved into on all faces in a + pattern. By etching on many blocks, you can draw out a line of connected etched-blocks.
Etched blocks can also be filled with certain materials. These include everything as hard or less than gravel (dirt,sand,clay blocks, etc). Note they cannot be filled with things like stone or wood.
Soft materials can also be taken back out of an etched block by right clicking with the shovel to retrieve it. However, don't expect after being used by a rune that ever etching will retain the material that filled it.
You can also fill them with fluids, water and lava. Note that water and lava will flow to fill up adjacent empty etches. Also note that if an etched block filled with water or lava comes into contact with an outside source of water or lava, they may react.
Update v0.6: Scroll paper required to make scrolls. Make it by combining 2 gold nuggets with a piece of paper.
Scrolls are a way for you to remember all those runic patterns without actually remembering anything.
Right clicking on the ground with one will draw out the rune for you (assuming you have the dust)
To make one, simply choose the page of the rune you want on the Runic Lexicon then right click it with a piece of Sroll Paper in your hand.
You may also notice when placing down some runes that they will appear in this strange pinkish purple color. That is not a dust, that is a placeholder to guide you into finishing the rune. It is there for when a rune is actually a variable, allowing you to choose which type of dust to place there.
When destroyed it does not drop anything and you can actually place dust over it without the need to break it. Like it isn't even there!
The Sacrifice Negator:
Creative only item, use in place of a rune's sacrifices and it will let you go free without them.
It is not consumed.
Runes that require the sacrifice as a form of variable (like bait rune to tell which mob to attract) will not work.
Creative only means there is no way to obtain it through legitimate gameplay means. ie, no crafting recipe.
Pouches are an item designed to lessen the hassle that comes with carrying around dust. Some runes may require more dust than you want filling up your inventory, so in that event this nifty little device is here to help.
It holds 100 stacks of dust, so 6400 dusts per pouch, though if you lose the pouch, the dusts inside are lost forever.
To put dust inside it, simply drop the dust on the ground, and pick it up with an appropriate pouch in your inventory.
To get dust out, place the pouch in a crafting grid. Dust will come out one at a time and will not use up the pouch.
Pouches are designed to completely take over the place of individual dusts. Everything you can do with a single piece of dust you can do with these pouches. Placing, crafting, using scrolls, it is all automatically taken out by the pouch. So to take it for a test drive, just fill it up and right click on the ground. Voila.
Inscriptions are the ancient art of carrying those magical runes with you. They have there whole own set of powers and abilities but the nice thing is, you wear it around your neck and it will constantly bring you its effects.
To make an inscription you need a couple parts:
-A blank inscription to write on
-Ink to write with
-Time. Once you have drawn your inscription you must wait for it to dry.
-an Inscription Enchating rune to imbue it with power.
A blank inscription paper is what you use to draw out your inscription. It requires 2 sheets of placement scroll paper and a piece of string.
Right clicking with this in hand will bring up a GUI that will let you draw on the inscription with whatever inks you have on your hotbar. Clicking on the inks on your hotbar will let you change which ink you are using, as highlighted by the purple border.
Left-clicking on the GUI will let you draw with that ink.
Right-clicking on the GUI will let you erase. (You will not get your ink back so be warned.)
Just like with runes, you can see all available inscription designs in the Runic Tome under the Inscriptions tab
Inks are made from every type of dust and are used to draw the inscriptions.
Each vial of ink will draw 32 squares in an inscription and once placed cannot be retrieved.
(Note to modders: inks and their recipes are automatically generated upon registration of your custom dust.)
Waiting and Drying...
IN ORDER FOR IT TO DRY, IT MUST BE IN *YOUR* INVENTORY, NOT IN A CHEST.
In order to actually use your inscription you must let it dry.
Once you have written anything in your inscription you will notice that the item changes its image slightly to mark that its been written on.
There will be a green bar at the bottom of the items icon (like the durability of a tool) signifying how long it will take for it to dry. It can take several minutes although being in a hot climate might speed up the process.
Once the inscription is fully dry, if it was a correctly drawn inscription, it will turn into an empty inscription awaiting enchantment.
If it was not drawn correctly, or was just a cool looking doodle, then it will turn into a dried inscription, which can no longer be edited, but can still be viewed.
Inscription Enchanting (not like regular enchanting)
An inscription when made must first be enchanted. This is similar to how a rune requires sacrifices upon its first creation.
To enchant an inscription, you must use the Inscription Enchanting rune.
The rune itself currently has no sacrifices, but serves as a utility for your inscription.
Throw on your dried and inscription along with its proper sacrifices as defined in its Tome page then activate.
This will fill up your inscription and allow it to be used.
When your inscription runs out after repeated use, you may then again use this rune to re-enchant it to refill up its power.
All that remains is to equip it! Place it on your chest slot in your inventory and follow the instructions given by the inscription on how to use it. Woohoo!
Running a Server:
Running a server should be pretty straightforward if you already know how to run one.
The only things you should need to know are:
-Use the DustModConfig.cfg file to disable individual runes
-Ops can still use disabled runes
-If using other mods, I would recommend disabling the Timelock rune because it will almost definitely cause bugs.
PM me or post your videos and I'll add them! I'm always looking for more!

Suggested/Planned Features and Runes
-Vertical runes (I don't really want to do this, but if I do it will be a loooong time coming because it would require major editing to the framework especially if I decide to make runes for it, besides, how the frick do you expect dust to stick to a wall >_>) Stop suggesting I make some sorta glue-like substance, that ISN'T THE POINT, if you think it is go get an education and read this again.
-Spirit armor and a shovel
-Remote rune activation
-Some method of returning some dust when the rune is wrong or fails
-Different scrolls that can be hand written and used almost like single use spells. Things like a single mega-jump or temporary invisibility. Basically for ever 1 dust you would get 8mini-dust that would be used up by these scrolls. Right clicking with an empty scroll would open a gui to let you draw in it with the mouse. I would probably either add a new block to 'enchant' or activate these scrolls though i'm not sure. Something with cool floaty effect for sure . If you inscribed the right pattern you will get a special scroll that will give the player some special fancy powers when right clicked
-Obelisk rune will be able to return back into the ground after maybe destroying the top block or something
-Tripwire rune: Activates other runes
-Home rune: Set spawn
-Weather rune: Toggles rain
-End rune: Return from the end (but will not send you there)
-Repair rune: Repairs tools and retains enchantments
-Feed rune: Turn things like flowers or leaves into hunger points
-Flight Sprite rune: Enables flying for a short while page13 Lecow (not 100% sure this is possible within the amount of time I like to restrict myself to for each rune)
-Perhaps upping the void rune so that blaze or lapis will keep the hole to the Void open and suck drops into void storage for a short while
-Nethergate rune: make oddly shaped nether portals page15 maxell45146
-Moses rune: split water page15 maxell45146
-Spawn trap: spawns creepers or other mobs around anyone who trips the trap and makes them attack you page15 adapted from maxwell45146
-Super mode(Working title): Ditch your mortal body and become superhuman. never need food again, always have some sorta potion buffs, extra jump height,(probably a few things more) . requires that you stay within a certain distance of the rune and a steady stream of live sacrifices. If you leave the radius you will instantly starve and grow dizzy. If you let the rune be broken or let it starve, you will die instantly (sent to the nether?) page 15 adapted from maxwell45146
-Meteor rune: summon's a meteor explosion that will land nearby and supply you with iron (big crater though) page 15 adapted from maxwell45146's destruction rune
-Anti-gravity rune: similar to the anti-gravity corestone from my Golem Factory mod page16 knightbutler
-Spawn egg: spawn a mob spawning egg
-Corruption rune: Dunno why you'd want this, but it sounds fun to program so I might include it it would slowly turn the world to netherrack around the rune page16 helios742
-Spirit boots: if you fall a distance that would damage you, the ground beneath you compresses (cobble->stone, sand->sandstone) making a crater depending on the fall distance and fall damage is negated
-Mega rune evaporate: huge rune (sarlacc scale) that evaporates all water within a several chunk radius. page17 welknair
-Mob Detection: Send a redstone signal to a receiver rune when a mob gets too close, post#521 horus
-Aethereal blockade: Stops all enders from teleporting, post#522 silentdeth
-Projectile Repulsion: Reverses (or more likely drops) all projectiles within a radius, post#522 silentdeth
-Signal flare: Small light which attracts and distracts mobs, post#451 oneeyeopen
FAQ / Common problems
I change the block ids in the config but they keep changing back! It hates me!
Yes it does, you need to realize the difference between comments in the config, and the actual values.
Those lines that start with '#' symbols at the top are comments to show you the default values. Change the other ones.
The dusts/textures don't show up. (Or any other graphical problem)
Try getting rid of optifine. Many have reported conflicts with it
The lexicon doesn't show anything! Your mod is broken! Fix it!
It isn't broken, many people get it to work. Many too have reported this bug but I myself have never run into it and therefore have no idea how to fix it. Try reinstalling it I guess.
Some have reported this to be caused by Optifine. Perhaps it's not updated?
I drew the rune but it doesn't do anything. How do I get it to work?!?!
Read this whole post please, I wrote it for a reason. Might I suggest the Basics section.
Right clicking my dust makes it turn grey and not do anything. What happened?
You got the design wrong. Double check it next time with the tome entry or try using a scroll.
I activated the rune, it turned white for a second then turned grey, what the heck?
You got the requirements wrong. Either you put down the wrong sacrifices or there is a special condition that you missed. For example, the pit rune must have a hole in the center.
I tired to place sacrifices on the runes but they just hopped off!
You put down the wrong sacrifices.
You should add this rune and this rune and this rune....
You know, if you have any java experience and experience in modding, you might wanna try making the rune yourself. There is an api that lets you make runes, dusts, and inscriptions relatively easily. You don't even need to make textures! Check the GitHub Wiki for instructions on how.
This rune is broken: [x]
Here is a list of runes that have had many bugs or seem to be bug-prone:
Download, Installation, and Changelog:
(3xBlockIDs, 6xItemIDs, 2xEntityID)
To install on Client or Server:
-Install latest recommended forge (with FML)
-Drag dustmod.jar into %appdata%/.minecraft/mods/
-Drag whatever addon rune pack jars you have into the same folder.
To disable a rune, go into /[ServerFolder]/DustModConfig.cfg and change it to false
Some runes are disabled by default due to SMP incompatibility and cannot be re-enabled.
To Change the Block/Item IDs:
Go to /.minecraft/config/DustMod.cfg. All the IDs should be there for you to change.
The download has been split!
Core- The core of the mod. This is required both server and client no matter what.
Default runes- The basic runes that used to come pre-installed. Requires the Core. Only needed on server unless client wants them in SSP.
Decorative dusts- A addon for decorative dusts of all wool colors. Requires Core. Only needed on server unless client wants them in SSP.
Test/Beta runes: These are runes that are either currently unstable, unbalanced, or unfinished. Be warned if using them in normal gameplay. These are released mostly as a sort of 'beta phase' before they are considered good enough to be added to the actual mod.Requires Core. Only needed on server unless client wants them in SSP.

A Note on the Testing Pack:
These additions are extremely buggy and are prone to crash. I am not responsible for lost saves or anything, use at your own risk. This pack is also subject to wild change as I may delete entire additions, causing you to lose them in world without refund. So be warned.

-Got off my lazy bum and decided to say its not WIP anymore

-You can update them either by placing them in the world or just crafting them 1:1 for their updated counterpart. No hassle.
-Dusts already placed in the world from the old version will automatically update.
-Added (slightly wonkey) procedural generation of lexicon entries. This should make it easier for 3rd party rune makers and for the server to control a client's rune list. All lexicon pages will be generated during runtime (if they do not exist) and placed into the .minecraft/dust_pages/ folder.

-(kind of)Added Powered Rune category: Runes that require a constant supply of food or fuel.
-See the Rune Information List link to see all runes, all those with an asterisk(*) are of this category

-Added: Items being held safe by the runic dust (preventing despawning) don't bob
-Added Rabbit Hole, Eternal Flame, Blinding Fog, Hunter Vision, Eggifier, and Power Relay runes.

-Fix: Rewrote the etching render system from scratch. Significate increase. On my computer I got 100 blocks without noticing a single change in framerate
-Fix: Etchings now have no problem rendering grass properly.
-Updated to 1.2.5

-added earth sprite: surrounds you with 8 pieces of glass that will float around you idly. When you stand still and crouch, they will all collect around you to form a small barrier.
-added terrain lift rune: encircling an area a line of clay (clay filled ruts) and then activating this rune with a live sacrifice on top will make the specified area lift up into the sky
-added option to crouch while right clicking a lexicon which will turn the page forward instead of back (helpful for creative mode so you dont break it)
-added magical flames that surround powerful runes (right now only sarlacc)
-added option to crouch while right clicking dust which will remove it (helpful for creative mode so you dont break it)
-added affect to torch rune: if dust made of lapis and above or contains any blaze at all, it will become a marker rune instead, which will create a beam of light high in the sky to see from miles around. Inspired by ALL_YOUR_BASE's idea
-added: XP storage rune now collects xp orbs that touch it, could prove useful in combination with sarlacc
-added: Obelisk rune now lifts you, waits for the top block to be destroyed, then goes back down. Now it's actually useful. If you still want the obelisk to stay up, just wait a (long)while or destroy the rune
