Charter Marks are the written and conjured form of Charter magic. There are a potentially infinite number of charter marks, and all have different meanings. Charter marks represent a thing not a letter or sound. Each charter mark has a name, a few names include: Anet, Calew, and Ferhan. Some are Master marks which are used to link lesser marks together in order to create spells of a greater power or complexity. In the Old Kingdom, children are routinely baptised with a Charter mark, allowing them to use Charter magic. This practice does not spread further south to Ancelstierre, except for a minor amount of charter magic use close to the Wall.
