Gaining Shamanic Abilities in RuneQuest Posted May 21, 2019 · Report reply 1 hour ago, David Scott said: Dismemberment is a common theme in shamanism. It's a death and rebirth motif common in mythology as well. But isn't directly connected to gaining a shamanic ability in the game, got it. 1 hour ago, David Scott said: I find it odd that you are asking about rules and haven't actually read this in the Rune spell description on page 326. If you are talking about the Discorporation Rune Spell, that's different from 'simply spending a rune point and making a mediation roll' (which is what you detailed in your story). But hey, way to be unhelpful with someone who might not have read every page of a 400+ page book. Yup, they must not be interested in rules.
