Learning Rune Magic in RuneQuest Posted June 16 · Report reply Questions about learning rune magic for beginning players. I'm running Six Seasons in Sartar and my players have just finished the initiation rite into manhood and into a cult. I was going to have them sacrifice one rune point and give one rune spell. Then I was reading the differences between spirit magic and rune magic. It seems that you don't have to pay for rune magic like you do spirit magic. So, should I allow my PC's to sacrifice as many POW pts. as they want with the rune spells from their cult? How does this usually work? It seems easier to get rune spells than spirit magic. What am I missing?
