Runecraft () is a gameplay modification for the official Minecraft Beta ("SMP") server that adds magic to the game in the form of "runes" that can be constructed in the actual game world. This enables players to create teleporters, "enchant" tools for added functionality, and do many other things.
This mod is currently in development, with several public releases having been made. The mod is available for Bukkit, CanaryMod and Vanilla servers. The vanilla edition requires changes to the main server .jar file.
Runecraft does not use any sort of server commands interface. Magic is invoked by placing and clicking on blocks rather than typing anything. While chat replies are used for some runes (oracle and depth note, for instance) the lack of "/" commands to control things results in a more immersive overall experience.
 Rune System
The modification's functionality is handled with "runes" that players build as structures in the game world out of in-game resources. Runes are predefined patterns of blocks arranged in a square of odd dimensions (e.g. 5x5 blocks) which the modification will recognize and, when the central block is used with a tool, trigger the corresponding effect on the player.
Runes are split into World Runes and Tool Runes, based on what their effect is. World Runes have a general effect on the game world (e.g. teleportation or terrain changes), while Tool Runes imbue the tool used to activate it with a special effect in addition to its normal function.
 Runecraft Servers
The official Runecraft server is the Weaver Survival Server, and whitelist applications can be made on the official forum thread.
Here is a list of other Runecraft servers:
 Building Runes
Runes are constructed as a pattern of odd dimensions (such as 3x3 or 5x5 blocks). Stone (but not cobblestone), dirt, and other "tier zero" blocks can be used to fill "blank" spaces in the pattern. The material the rune is constructed out of determines the rune's "tier". Higher tiers make the rune more powerful. World runes generally effect a larger area, tool runes last for longer etc. Not all runes (recall) can be effected by tier.
Runes are activated by using (right-click by default) the central block, or the floor below with any Tool. Different runes often have specific activation requirements. Shovel runes must be clicked on with a shovel, while teleporters can be activated with an empty hand.
A number of different materials may be used in the construction of runes. Each has been assigned a value based (more or less) on their rarity, and affect the potency of the final result.
Consult this for a partial list of tiered materials and their potency and a more in-depth discussion of this topic.
Server admins may change which tier a material is as of runecraft 2.11. See disabled-runes.txt for details.
See Mods/Runecraft/Tiered Block Chart for more information.

 Teleporters and Waypoints
Teleporters and Waypoints are used in combination to create general-use public teleports in the game world. A teleporter will only work if there is a waypoint with exactly matching signature blocks. Additionally, waypoints must be activated after construction and teleporters "linked" to an existing activated waypoint before they can be used.

permissions: teleport: true runes: true options: compass-old-north: false recall-weakness: false
The teleport and runes permissions settings determines the default setting of the teleport and runes permissions. If these are false, players must be explicitly given permission in order to use Runecraft.
Compass-old-north addresses mojangs' change of the direction the sun rises in. The compass rune is currently the only one effected. i.e. vertical teleporters are done the same orientation either way.
The recall rune will optionally apply a temporary weakness effect if recall-weakness is true.
This file is located in the server root directory both for vanilla and bukkit versions of runecraft. Lines starting with "#" are comments, and are ignored.
Initially, it contains:
#If you wish to disable a rune, list its proper name in this file. #This is the name printed when the rune is activated. #If you wish to use a whitelist instead, uncomment this line: #whitelist #list the name of a player to ban them from using magic (except existing teleporters). #here are some extra options you can add to the list: # enable travel ink - force teleporters and waypoints to be made of a specific material # ink X - dermine the block type (X) to use for travel ink-- you must add this if you add the above # enable teleport toll - force users of teleporters to sacrifice a specific block in the center # toll X - dermine the block type (X) to use for travel toll-- you must add this if you add the above # enable multiworld travel - allows teleportation between worlds in bukkit. # initiation - players cannot use runes until they activate a special rune containing bedrock # judgement - allows the creation of the altar of judgement, allowing players to modify disabled-runes ingame.
Not yet (as of 2.12) mentioned is that you can alter the tier of a block by adding something like
#Obsidian should be tier 4, it doesn't deserve a tier 5 level. tier 49 4
There are other keywords that can be added as well:
enable mastery bypass protection
Adding this line helps bridge master and wall master runes play nicely with some anti-cheat and world protection mods.
Activates the faith island save-to-disk and restore-from-disk runes. (new in 2.13) These runes are disabled by default, and so listing them in disabled-runes has the opposite effect it would on, say, powerpick.
enable multiworld travel enable multiworld ink #112 is netherbrick multiworld ink 112
In addition to enabling multiworld travel, you may specify a block (or "ink") that the teleporter must be made of for multiworld travel to work.
See Rune Names List for disabling unwanted runes on your server.
Note: If something up there doesn't work, try them exactly as shown here:
recall green thumb fire pick uncrafter ice pick admin pick shield shrub seed leaf blower farmer's charm power hoe fire sword pyrokinesis embedder water pick surface tension spring string magic lasso depth paper zeerix' chest phase blocks lock blocks automation designator flotilla bow of light bow of light multishot spleef blocks power drill tunnel shovel faith transfer lava gel spider touch light sword Butterfingers Mouse trap Mouse trap Whisper
If a player has the teleport permissions, but not runes, they will only be able to use pre-existing teleporters, and not create any new runes of their own. They'll still be able to destroy them, of course.
Each individual type of rune has an associated "runecraft.runes.??" permissions node, like this:
Note that spaces are removed, and it's not capitalized.
Here is a partial list of permissions. All of these have been tested with Privileges and seem to work. For single word runes a single line is sufficient. For multi-word runes you must use two permissions. The first which uses spaces between the words and the second ".use" permission which has no spaces. Note, some names do not actually corrospond with the names this wiki uses.
Missing permissions are: Magic Cake Uncrafter Secret Panel Force Field Lightning Trap Prometheus Spider Touch
Please share if you know the permissions for these.
