Identifying Runes


Necrothurge

Recommended Posts

As long as you use the Glorantha Core Font as your basis, you have all the Runes you need for HeroQuest & RuneQuest Glorantha:

The runes you picture only occur in Mongoose RQ. I've gone through Greg's rune lists and they're not there. I'd treat them as weird Second Age God Learner constructions that were rightly destroyed by the universe when the God Learners perished.

Hey, guys, I've been converting runes into emojis for the Discord channel that I'm running and I came across these two that I (and seemingly no one on the server) can identify:

Does anyone have any ideas?

The first one is the Bowtie Rune. 

The second is the Fez Rune.  

Both runes are favored in combination as part of a little known Dragonewt Cult that likes to Cosplay as Gallifreyans.

I must ask: why a dragonewt cult? (sorry for killing the joke but I'm actually confusticated on this one).

Because Dragonewts are the only Gloranthans known for regularly coming back from "death" in a new body.

Also, they are clearly the most wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey  of the elder races.

Perfect.

Bonus points.

Both correct, plus Dragonewts are just downright weird, and that might include cosplaying as characters from Earth Sci Fi while in Glorantha.
