I have always been fascinated with “divination” or fortune-telling.
This fascination started when I was a child. One summer, an older cousin from Ilocos Sur came to our house to take a vacation. She taught me how to “read” playing cards. A short time after, I knew of an aunt that makes a living as a geomancer. From then on, I started to think that perhaps our clan really had a knack for fortune-telling.
Some time after college, I found myself in the company of astrologers. By this time, I had been into rune reading already— an interest I developed after having had some AD&D experience with my childhood friends. But fascination with divination increased after having seen them generate astrological charts using computer software. And then, I was introduced to Facade Runes, which offered a lot more in terms of computer-aided fortune-telling. I had always wanted to make something-sort-of-like Facade Runes.
So my Rune Bag is my first attempt at making a computer-aided divination tool.
But with the way Rune Bag is built, it is supposed to be usable offline. I chose to compile everything into independent HTML files instead of creating a web appliction so I can download them on my phone and use them whenever I like.
