Glyphs are spells located throughout a dungeon that must first be picked up before they can be used. Each glyph occupies a full inventory slot, and otherwise is treated like any other item. The Wizard, however, treats all glyphs as small items. Glyphs are each worth 100 conversion points, which will grant you a special bonus by destroying them. The result of the conversion is based on their race.

Summary

A glyph's name hints at the spell effect it performs. Some glyphs cost more mana than others to cast and not all are available from the start. Note that the Wizard and Berserker classes respectively get a 1 point discount and 2 point penalty to mana costs for their glyphs. As well, the deity Mystera Annur has a boon which will change the cost of various glyphs, raising the cost of some and reducing the cost of others.
