New Official Rune website ( http://rune-world.com/ )

"Did you ever play Rune, The viking themed FPS? If you did and were a member of the forum at http://runegame.com then you know that the site has been down for a couple of months.
Rune was developed at the turn of the Millenium and has had a small community of players, modders and just fans ever since on runegame.com.

Well I was just contacted by the site admin that it is on it's way back, the community that is, under a different URL.
Take heed! and update your bookmarks.

From Laurie:
"I just got word the RuneGame.com website server developed a significant coding issue/bug for 2K techs to fix right now due to it's great age. Why it has been down for so long.

In the meantime, Human Head has decided to create a new website for the Rune Game Community under a new name: "Rune-World.com". For now, only a "Head" page is showing but forums and more pages will appear shortly. You can find the holding page here: http://rune-world.com/

I'll send more info as soon as possible.

Well, at least Rune isn't totally dead and forgotten about, just some serious tech issues with the old dated site. Hopefully the new site will be up and running within a few months.  :datass: :quesadilla!: :jamieh:

We should see if laurie needs help/hosting, I could have a new site up in a day :P

Never tried Rune. May have to give it a try sometime. Anyone want to tell me what it is before though?

Totally give it a go man. It's {{WaR}} Clan's flagship game. Now to explain Rune..

Basically it's kind of like Zelda, except it's made on the Unreal Engine and was designed for PC master race. Very fast paced action with about 15 different weapons, each weapon having it's own animation set and unique rune power.

As far as combat goes, you weave in and out trying to score hits on your opponents in real time. There's no RPG/Stats bullshit to get in your way. Plus you can rip a motherfucker's head/arm off, pick up said severed limb/head, and beat mother fuckers to death with the severed limb/head.  There's also Rune powers that can be acquired by picking up Rune stones scattered around. Some runes increase your health, others give you what is basically Mana that can be used to enchant your weapon. As far as weapon powers go, there's a sword that can summon a fucking rape avalanche with a swing that can wipe out fucking everything. Another neat one is the hand axe's ghost ability that makes you ethereal, so physical attacks wont hurt you ( magic ones will ) and monsters will ignore you.

TL;DR Get Rune, Sat has a D/L for it in his drop box thingy in the Members Only section.
