Grendel's Cave Help

Rune Stones

Runes make up Rune Stones. You make rune stones by writing your runes. First, you must have the ability Writing, which you can get from the Witch, and then you must be holding some runes. Select Write from the Cast Spell select field, type in the rune stone name you want to write and then click on your thane. If you do not know what to write you can get a hint. Select Write from the Cast Spell field, type help into the text field and then click on your thane. The text area will come back and say something similar to You: feel euphoric, see the word Thurisaz in your runes, feel the dampness of the cave. Your next move would be to select Write, type in Thurisaz and then click on your thane. You will see your Thurisaz runes disappear from your inventory and a Thurisaz rune stone appear. You have just written your first rune stone. There are twenty-four rune stones, all with the same names as the runes.

You can use rune stones for many things, but the most important is gaining passage to other worlds or obtaining hints from the Dragon. To gain passage you would give your rune stone to a guardian of a world and he will grant you passage to the world. There is a catch; you must give the guardian the correct stone. As an example, the God Heimdall guards Asgard. If you go to Bifrost Bridge and try to enter Asgard, you will more than likely not move into Asgard but Heimdall will block you. If you give him the correct stone, select Give from the Use Item select field, type in Heimdall and then click on the stone, he will grant you the ability Cosmonaut. This Ability will allow you to pass into Asgard.

To get hints from the Dragon, go to his lair, select Give from the Use Item select field, type in dragon and then click on the stone. If the Dragon desires the stone then he will give you a quest hint. The Dragon wants nine different stones. These hints are essential to obtaining access to items needed to complete quests.
