Storm Tribe p 126, part of the Lhankor Mhy writeup (of course!)

Quick summary:

Runes are not used as a alphabet anywhere, but everyone understands them.

LM invented three scripts, two vocabularies, and one code system.

"Cat scratching" - southern script used by Heortlings "Dog scratching" - northern script used by Alakorings of Tarsh

"Stone scratching" - difficult, used only by the cult for magical formulae. This uses the second vocabulary, whose words change in meaning according to the Elasa Secrets, a complex code system.

This being Storm Tribe, I doubt if it covers whatever Solars and Lunars get up to, of course.
