- Jun 6, 2009Kinda off topic but related and funny:
I made a leather dice box for a customer and used the rune set to write 'One DM to rule them all'. IT is a play on Lord of the Rings and the God complex most dungeon master have..... I have a pic of this box in my porfoilo that I have on my table at shows and fairs to show off some of my talents..... Jokely I tell people that get a free item if they can read the runes.....
I had a young lady in Austin who translated it a matter of seconds..... Now I just say they get 'extra points'...no more free stuff!!!
I learned my lesson!!!! LOL
There is a pic of the box in the 'custom' section of my website. Link is below.

By the way gang, it was usual for the writing to go from right to left, but not always. With a single mark in between words and no grammar as we now use it. Anybody know ancient Norse?

Tandy stopped carrying these stamp sets several years ago, in favor of the Hebrew alphabet, but thanks to an enterprising store manager, there are a limited number available at the Tandy store in Chelmsford, MA. They're only available at this one store, so don't go looking for them on the Tandy website -- they're not there. Let me reiterate that these are leather stamps, and give a lovely sharp impression in properly cased veg tan leather.

If you're interested, contact Ken Evans or Marji Clinton at the Chelmsford, MA Tandy Leather store: 978-275-0596 or 866-771-0003, or you can email them at boston@
