    Hi,

    Is it possible to make blank ruins instead of having to buy them from an NPC?

    Thanks, Katrena

    It was originally explained to me as there would be too many steps, and skills, involved to make it practical, kinda like the steps required to fire a ship cannon.
    Answer: no, and please leave it be, thanks

    We there is no reason to pay for a Rune, especially on Atl, just pick up the ones that are dropped all over the place and remark them.

    At first I thought it was just a typo, then you did it again in the body of the post.

    Seeing people say ruin, instread of rune, is a sad commentary on the lack of basic knowledge people have about UO. Not quite as bad as a Dev flubbing moongate by saying 'runegate' in official fiction though. Yes, Mark, you'll never live that down.

    Hey, I like ruins... I have one right in front of my beach house and use it every Thanksgiving to trap demonic turkeys in.... But it would be hard to make one... Hmmm... Stone carving for sure, and even some metal work if I'm not mistaken...

    Just sayin......

    Mining for the stone plus Carpentry for shaping the runestone(hammer and chisel) plus Inscription to enchant magical properties that will hold a mages' mark.

    Sorry, but Carpenters can't work in stone. Their chisel's are for wood. A mason is what is needed....

    I always thought that you should be able to make them with a "rune carving knife" :)

    Give him a break - might be a new player. I used to call runic tools 'ruinic' for the first couple months till I retrained myself. Vets have no concept of how many terms, abbreviations and slang is part of this game that we take for granted.
