Especially in Kralorela. Heck, there could be a complete incorporation of the Theyalan runic system into the Kralorelan system already, it is administered by the August Celestial Storm-Voiced Senior High Grand Master of sumthinerother, I'm sure. In fact, I might even venture to posit that the precise title of this official, who is also in charge of handling the religious needs of the rare Theyalans who need to be escorted out of the realm, might be something like this:

His most August Majesty, the Speaker of Storm-Voiced Law, who Brings Light along the Sought Path, Comforter and Protector, Foe of Chaos, Keeper of the Sword that is Straight, the Trade Wind Lord Sage.

There are many acts of virtue, but three are the greatest:

To engender love where there is hate.

To bring understanding where there is ignorance.

To really slam some clueless git in grand style.
