From the publisher "The world of Rune offers both danger and glory to young Viking warriors. Enormous serpents infest the seas, ready to wrap their tails around longships and drag their crews down to watery graves. Giants stride through mountain passes, their noses hungry for the smell of manflesh. Elves both light and dark dwell in woods too dense for men to survive. Deep in the mountains lie trackless miles of caverns and passageways, infested with all manner of creatures, from lowly but devious goblins to massive wyrms who can devour entire raiding parties without filling their monstrous bellies. In this land of Scandinavian myth, epic adventure awaits the brave at heart.
The Rune RPG features:
A competitive roleplaying approach - characters earn victory points for their exploits, and a winner is declared at the end of every session
A group GM-ing experience - Rune's innovative encounter creation system encourages players to create skirmishes to insert in the larger plot of the adventure
