Lastrune

A Dwarven funerary practice. Every fane devoted to a Dwarven god has a room where the followers, upon reaching the end of their lives, carve a single rune. This rune summarizes the dwarf's life and the subtle craft is some runes is quite impressive. The room where this practice occurs is also know as the Lastrune, but some fanes allow carving on any space on the walls.

If the dwarf dies before carving his or her lastrune, they will often do so on any hard surface in the field and ask survivors to take the rune home to their family. Dwarves believe that ghosts and undead are comprised of Dwarves that do not have their names properly inscribed in a Lastrune.

The practice began primarily by followers of Zaghara, but quickly spread to other faiths with small variations.
