I didn't want to go off topic on choosing runes, so asking here. Are witches runes relatively new? I am familiar, at least a little, with the more traditional? runes talked about here, but I do keep seeing witches runes and read something that said that runes by definition are the Futhark and Celtic runes? I'm confused. Have witches runes been around a long time and just not called runes? Are witches runes and witches stones the same thing? Just trying to sort out what are really considered "runes" and if witches runes have been around a long time under another name? THANKS!
