The theory is largely underdeveloped, although it is currently being researched by the runecrafting guild. The theory's earliest conception was likely during the early days of runecrafting study, when the Wizards' Tower was established as a result of the discovery of runecrafting at the start of the Fifth Age. Following the burning of the Wizards' Tower in the Year 70, runecrafting theory suffered a major decline as a large amount of knowledge was lost, although the tower quickly recovered. Today the theory is studied heavily in the Runecrafting Guild and Wizards' Tower, and is also a likely point of research in the Wizards' Guild and others.
- The ideas behind the Unified Runecrafting Theory are similar to the real-world Unified field theory, type of field theory that allows all of the fundamental forces between elementary particles to be written in terms of a single field.
