Hugrúnar, Hugrunes - Mind runes, by which one gains intelligence. Closely related to Malrunes are the Hugrunes (or Hog runes). The word is related to the name of one of Odin's two attendant ravens, Huginn, "Thought". These are the mind-power runes. Traditionally they should be written upon the runemaster's chest and 'secret parts'. Their function is to bring mental excellence to the user. As in former times, Hugrunes are one of the most powerful and effective means of mind-consciousness.
