    Okay, I read a pretty nice series a couple of years ago, but I can't remember the name.
    Here is a list of things i remember from the series, if anyone know what series I'm talking about please tell me :)

    The "Magicians" or w/e in the series consists of two races;

    Race one have runes covering their bodies, and are for the most part imprisoned in "hell" (or whatever it's called) where only the strongest survive and everything is dangerous.

    Race two have the runes in their minds, and, if I recall correctly, have grown quite soft and peaceful.

    During a duel between two magicians, one of each race, the struggle is described as a more advanced version of rock, paper, scissors.

    If I recall correctly there was floating islands in the series, as well as some kind of giant machine.

    I hope someone have a clue xD

    i kno the one, David Gemmel wrote it if it helps, i cant remember the name tho
    the 2 races were related and split.
    and the runes themselves are magic right, so the good guys trace runes in the air, whereas the baddies have the magic on them, strengthening them
