"The 27 True Runes: Their Creation"
"In the beginning...there was "Darkness". "Darkness" lived for eons in a rift in time. Suffering in solitude for so long, "Darkness" finally dropped a "Tear". Two brothers were born of "Tear". "Sword" and "Shield". "Sword" said he could cut anything to pieces. "Shield" swore he could protect anything. And so, the two went to battle. The battle lasted seven days and seven nights. "Sword" cut apart "Shield", and "Shield" broke "Sword" into pieces.
Fragments of "Sword" fell and became the sky. Fragments of "Shield" fell and became the earth. Sparks from the battle became the stars. The 27 jewels that adorned "Sword" and "Shield" became the "27 True Runes," and the World went into motion.

Title: Birth of Rune Cannons
"When Rune Cannons appeared, previous combat methods became entirely ineffective, and naval battles have never been the same since then."
"Rune Cannons were first identified approximately 15 years ago. It is held that the fleet affiliated with Middleport possessed them. Even now, there is no way to obtain them except at Middleport."
"Rune Magic is sealed into spheres called Rune Shells, and it's power is instantly magnified, then fired by passing it through a lens-like cannon. The larger Rune Shells are said to even have the power to destroy a ship with one single shot."
"The components needed to construct Rune Shells are currently unknown."
"There is even a theory that the material was summoned from another world by a wizard with extraordinary summoning spells."
"At first glance, this theory seems nonsensical, but it is also true that reports of strange creatures appearing and attacking ships began to surface around this time."
"It may mean that these two phenomena are somehow related."
Found by using the Treasure Hunting side quest, Map #2. You can find Treasure Map #2 in the Underground Path in Middleport during your recruitment of Warlock.
In the beginning, all that existed was Darkness.
For a long,long time, Darkness lived in solitude, growing ever so lonely.
Out of sorrow and despair, Darkeness shed a tear.
From the tear were born two brothers: Sword and Shield.
Sword claimed it could cut through all that exists. Shield claimed itself impenetrable.
Thus, the conflict was born -- a truly vicious conflict, lasting seven days and seven nights.
In the end, Sword breached Shield, and Shield shattered Sword. Pieces of Sword rained down to make the sky. Pieces of Shield rained down to make the ground. Stars were created from the sparks of that battle.
The 27 gems adorning Sword and Shield transformed into the 27 True Runes.
And thus began the world as we know it.
