Some Ideas for Runes


My party played now 3 adventures with the giant treasure tabel from Mikes Inside.
Due to some lucky rolls the party was burried in runes!
So I made up some rules to restrict the use.

-Masterrunes are Dwarf only

-only one Masterrune per Weapon, Armor

-Runes have to be bonded by a smith in the next settlement the party visits.(Weaponsmith->weapons, Armorer->Armor...)

-the Smith charges half the runevalue for his work (eg. Rune of Fear is 500gp, so the smith charges 250gp for his work).

-bonding the rune takes d3 days (if the warrior is thrown out before the smith is finished, he has to come back after the next dungeon).

I also play around with the idea of doing a roll per bonded rune. On a roll of one on d6 the rune was destroyed in the bonding process.

Any other ideas, comments or critiism?

Your instincts are all correct, but check out my post on the Runesmith Warrior for info from the Warhammer world...

Sounds good.
Especially the Rule of Three, but I think my friend will stuff his Lv. 4 dwarf (with 8 runes on his great axe) down my throat when I invoke that one.
