n the world
of Dragonraid, "magic" (DragonPower) is recognized as being an evil trap
designed to lure men into the sin of powerlust. It promises everything,
and in the end, destroys and consumes everything it touches... and the
However, the OverLord has provided WordRunes, a form of prayer, to his
LightRaiders as a way to protect their bodies and grow their souls. The
full rules on how to use WordRunes and the basic set of Runes are available
at the DR1 website by ordering the boxed game. Gamers may use three Runes
a day by reading them, but can invoke any number of them from memory, so
the game serves as an excellent study tool in your Walk with the OverLord!
Remember, as the AM you may not wish to grant the desired effect...a WordRune
is a request of the OverLord, not a demand. Your game ref will judge
if the Rune is a humble request, as it should be.
I had to come up with some new Runes that would provide cures and wonders
for a more exciting game. Here are the new WordRunes for my world. You
should print this webpage, cut the Runes out as tiny scrolls, and use them
as treasure for the game.
