Glorantha has long been known for its use of runes, and HeroQuest continues this tradition, with lavish use of runes throughout the new rules. In keeping with that tradition, each copy of the limited edition hardcover will have a rune of the customer’s choice printed on the cover. More than 400 runes are available, some of them never before revealed to the public. Here is the list of selected runes.
