Getting new runes
Submitted by Araknir on Tue, 05/06/2012 – 05:32
I’m new here and getting started on Glorantha (even if I have been interested in passing since the original HeroWars game).
One of the questions that have been asked by my players (as they are really caught on the runes symbolism) is about the process of aquiring new runes. On page 73 of S:KoH, there is a side note about heroquests to do that, but what bugs me is how frequent is getting a new runes in Glorantha (and in the Orlanthi society). There were talks about chieftains or kings gaining the Mastery Rune through heroquesting notably.
As I understand the hero quest process, this could be the result of several things :
– As the main reward of the heroquest for the quester
– As a side benefit
– As the result of an heroquest challenge.
Is my understanding correct ? Is there some other thing I did not think about ?
