I have 3, all home-made. My first one is a set of acorns, the second one is pine wood, and the latest one is made of chestnuts (Anglo-Saxon runes). Oh, and I've inherited one, made of wood (ash, I think?), but it was bought in a shop.
I have a set of amethyst ones, a set of Lapis Lazuli ones, and a half done set of silver ones I'm making from metal clay. Those are all Elder Futhark. I also have a set of obsidian witches runes, maybe they are onyx now that I think about it....
I have made mine out of pop bottle tops! I have the reg. Runes, Dream-stones, crows-tones, Tao stones, and now ready to start a dragon rune set as well! I store each set in their own glass jar... and I "throw" them into a Christmas type shallow bowl/platter type container.
I have an adventurine set that I bought in 94 or so. The gold has long since come off of the rune images, and a couple of them have broken and been glued back together. They're in the same little goatskin bag I bought for them back then. They worked very well for me, but I retired them out respect - if I was that beat up, I certainly wouldn't want to work too often!
The next oldest is a set I made out of oak slices. I painted them red and used a wood burner. The Laguz rune got lost in a move, though. Those live in a little ceramic crock awaiting a replacement for Laguz.
The newest is a moss agate set in a bison tobacco pouch.
And those are all my Elder Futhark sets.
I do have Chronata's Crowstones, and her Hallowstones. They work great! I don't really think if them as runes, though. They're full images, albiet tiny.
And a set of Witch's Runes in amethyst. Those are almost like a reduced Lenormand, you can see the Lenormand influence.

I have a set of yew wood runes I got from Tara Hill Designs many years ago and a set of bone runes I picked up in a local shop. I have been considering getting silver rune dice from Badali Jewelry for a while, but I haven't done it yet.
Sadly I don't have the dexterity or fine motor skills to create my runes from scratch for myself but my set are holly wood created by a lovely lady on Ebay called Greenwoman crafts. The symbols are pyrographed (wood burnt) on to the beautifully sanded wood.
The Crow stones I saw on the link you put up, very much remind me of the lenormand system, stars, sun, moon, letter, snake, etc. Are they the same system just in a stone format in stones instead of cards?

wildrosespeonies: Forever a kickstarter annoyance: when creators blame the backers for the creators' lack of transparency and change of plans. It is NOT my responsibility as a backer to make you transparent.

wildrosespeonies: (And when you make it my responsibility because of your constant failures to communicate, you best believe, I'm not gonna keep it to private emails. All backers deserve to know that shit you are pulling.)
Feb 11, 2019 6:35:50 GMT
wildrosespeonies: (There seems to be no in between. Creators are either super informative from the get-go, or you have to guilt them into giving them info they should be sharing in the first place. And they blame YOU for their
Feb 11, 2019 6:37:05 GMT
wildrosespeonies: inability to be informative on their posts in the first place. If it's MY money at stake, I'm not gonna feel bad for embarrassing you in spite of your attempts to make me feel bad for calling you out.)

wildrosespeonies: I like the oracle deck I backed. It is high quality and was worth getting, but not getting anything from those creators again.
Feb 11, 2019 6:39:46 GMT
wildrosespeonies: Plot twist: the oracle deck makers refunded me back my money. Which I never asked or demanded back. I merely wanted better communication, which they never gave. Anyway, they are seriously overpricing the decks now. Glad I got it via kickstarter.

Holly: Ohhhh I think I know what deck you're talking about
Feb 25, 2019 1:56:17 GMT
wildrosespeonies: If you know, I assume you have heard things through the grapevine about their behavior? I still make no apology for calling them out on IG and the KS page a week later. They just suck at communicating and being able to use multiple platforms to explain
Feb 26, 2019 20:29:48 GMT
wildrosespeonies: their ever changing minds regarding things. (They told KS backers we would get a discount on their new oracle deck versions, and then backtracked. I called them out on that and they tried to blame it all on ME. For their bullshit.)
Feb 26, 2019 20:30:49 GMT
wildrosespeonies: (They also told KS backers it is our responsibility to keep up with their further product news on IG. Never mind that they already got into trouble once from multiple KS backers calling them out for using IG only as an update source.)

wildrosespeonies: Yeah, I'm not sorry they gave me back my money. I didn't demand it back, but it's not like they are broke given they are squeezing out money from pppl now with their overpriced products and fragile egos about REASONABLE critiques.
Feb 26, 2019 20:33:43 GMT
wildrosespeonies: In short, they don't like critique and will refund you your money to get rid of your bad review rather than... I don't know.. just have consistent communication the entire go. Shitty business people.

wildrosespeonies: I don't know if he practices tarot or has ever gotten a tarot reading, but I find great that Richard Madden (aka Robb Stark aka Prince Kit aka David Budd) will like any posts his friends or other famous people he follows regarding tarot readings.
