Through your adventure in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, you will encounter many different runes that are decorative elements of the environment and UI. Upon research, and based on certain pieces of paper scattered around the world, I managed to create this guide to read the runes. The first part of this doc will explain how to use them, the second part will contain various places I have found the runes with translation.

There are two ways of writing with runes – either a simple switch of the letters or using glyphs that will be a combination of vowel and consonant. Below here there is the full table of all known symbols and glyphs so far.
As you can see, the top row is vowels, and the far-left column is consonants. You can use them to type as they are as well, without worrying about glyphs.
How to write the second column?
To write letters like C, Z or F, you need to add this runic symbol on top of the column next to the base vowel in the top right corner. Example below.
How to write with glyphs?
Glyphs are a combination of two runes, usually coming in a combination of vowel and then consonant. Keep in mind that in most cases in glyphs those symbols switch their order. This is why keeping even spaces between each symbol is important, to avoid mix-ups of letter order like the example below.
Keep in mind that Tiny Tina is not a poet – sometimes a letter or two will be missing, good luck with decrypting!
