Sygaldry is a type of "magic" or sympathy whereby, instead of words being said aloud to create a magical effect, magical runes are inscribed upon a material to give it permanent magical properies. The practice of artificery uses sygaldry as its primary method, where magical objects are built, such as sympathy lamps. Kvothe also uses sygaldry in saving the town of Trebon, when he inscribes a rune on a piece of wood to bind it to the burning buildings, then nails it underwater to reduce the flames. This application of sygaldry is known as a "heat eater."
