Uses

When used:

You poke at the runes some, causing them to swirl around, but it seems to be waiting for some additional input.

Or, if have an orange juice sample charge:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

The mysterious characters seem to respond to the sounds, but basically at random. You feel there must be some deeper meaning, but cannot find it.

Or, with an orange juice sample charge and Secrets of the Cube:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the characters from that strange puzzle and watch as they respond to the sounds, dancing with inhuman patterns. There must be some underlying meaning to the pattern, but it eludes you.

Or, with an orange juice sample charge and Secrets of the Cube and Shadowy Presence??:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the sounds as similar to the chants explained in the tome of binding.

You recognize the characters from that strange puzzle and watch as they respond to the sounds, dancing with inhuman patterns. There must be some underlying meaning to the pattern, but it eludes you.

Or, with an orange juice sample charge and Shard of Language:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the characters from that strange tablet and watch as they respond to the sounds, dancing with inhuman patterns. There must be some underlying meaning to the pattern, but it eludes you.

Or, with an orange juice sample charge Secrets of the Cube and Shadowy Presence (or having seen the mysterious drone signature?) and an inhuman HUD manager running and no Sight Link:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the sounds as similar to the chants explained in the tome of binding.

You recognize the characters and watch as they respond to the sounds, dancing with inhuman patterns. It seems very similar to your HUD manager, which might be able to help if it could see.

Or, with an orange juice sample charge Secrets of the Cube and Shadowy Presence (or having seen the mysterious drone signature?) and an inhuman HUD manager running and at least one (I had 3) Sight Link:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the sounds as similar to the chants explained in the tome of binding.

You recognize the characters and even the inhuman patterns of their dance. Your computer starts throwing errors as you look at the runes, as though something were trying to communicate with it.

On closer inspection, it seems to be coming from within your HUD manager… but the rest of the computer has no idea how to handle it.

Or, with an orange juice sample charge, Secrets of the Cube, Shadowy Presence (?), 1 Sight Link, a Midgard PDA running inhuman HUD manager and a Midgard neural expander installed:

You fall into something like a trance, staring at the swirling characters. Strange sounds rise to your lips.

You recognize the sounds as similar to the chants explained in the tome of binding.

You recognize the characters and even the inhuman patterns of their dance. A voice echoes in your mind, seemingly transmitted through your computer.

You can only understand the edges of what the voice is saying, even though the language it uses is strangely familiar. The sounds you both use continue to make the characters move and dance, however.

Even once the voice fades, your insight into the language remains.
