Hi, I'm running a Pathfinder game where the PC finds Runes that can spell out everyday words that can do various thing. Mostly adding elemental damage +1 fire on a baseball bat. The problem is that at this moment he can perform this ritual with a exchange for exp, but I feel that theres something more or a better idea for this mechanic. I'm open to ideas. Much thanks Hawkeye

I agree there needs to be a better way to do this. "Spending XP" is something that was done away with in Pathfinder.
“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.” -- Alice in Wonderland
If he's permanently enchanting items with the runes, there's already a system for that, with magic item creation feats. If they are temporary, you could give him a pool of power to use on the runes, and each active rune uses part of that pool. SO say he has 10 points of power in his pool, he could put +1 runes on say, 5 weapons at a time.
