The Book of Runa

The Book of Runa
Dawn of Darkness - Collection 6 - "Heroes of Durgeth"


If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio: The grass is singed black, as Runa slowly floats to a landing. Three sentinels collapse to the ground behind her while she stares at Raelin, eyes unwavering. "Not even your staff can protect them from me, Raelin. Nor can it protect you." With a flash she charges forward, spear directed at the throat of her prey. Sometimes even the most beautiful of beings hold within their chests a blackened heart. Raelin dashes to the right, though it is to no avail; her shoulder catches the tip of Runa’s spear and she tumbles through the air, crying out in pain. Some say that Runa is born of Utgar himself, for her cruelty nearly matches that of the evil Archkyrie. Even her comrades fear her malice. Raelin rights herself and climbs high into the sky in hopes of escape. Runa lifts her fiery red gaze and whispers under her breath, "We’ll meet again, pathetic warrior." (Hasbro)

I was playing a game against her and I had a group of 8 figures all close buy. She came up on them and started using that helm of hers...

nothing happened. I think a total of about 12-18 tries were made and nothing.

The power is a bit worthless to me seeing as how it affects everyone including her own army.

If it was army selective them maybe it would be OK or if it was as is but hit on 18-20 then maybe she would be worth it but as is she will NEVER get her points total in a fight.

I once took her on with a horde of zombies. I ran her down and surrounded her with about 12 of them. In the full round it took for me to take her down (mostly because I wanted to see how much damage she could do), she didn't kill a single one...

Runa would've been nicer with probably an extra defense die.

Maybe an extension of her radius (4-5)

Ok nevermind I'll just use Deadeye Dan.

I'd say she really just needs stealth flying. She's actually pretty dangerous with the right castle setup. If you have to chase her and she can just keep flying away and trying for the kill, she's pretty scary. Of course, her cost simply comes from the gamebreaking possibility of wiping out 200+ points in a single turn. Like all probability characters, she might prove her worth once out of 20 games or so

From what I've read from other posters on here, she's best used with a couple squads of Minions (her 120, plus 220 for Minions, so 340 of your army, leaving another 160 for some range, etc).
Then put all your turns on the Minions and keep them guessing whether you'll activate her or not. Basically she becomes a 120 point decoy, more valuable for her possible threat than anything else. But if it extends the survivability of the Minions, those added chances at deadly strike x3 can be quite nice.

One of the rare, shining games I'll probably ever see with Runa was when she took out 400 points of a 600 point army.
With two consecutive 20s, I destroyed Charos, then Raelin.
For the win, Runa took out Brunak.
A succesful, but rare Runa date.

Yeah, I know I've related this tale before, but c'mon, it's Runa!!!

This pretty much says it all. I've had her for months but have never once used her because of her trash stats. Someone always comes up with a "Well, if you get 'em on top of a castle..." or some other such uncommon situation as an apology for crappy figures, but that doesn't make them any less horrible. Honestly, I don't know why they bothered. Who playtested her, and how many times? It's a real shame, as she is one of the coolest sculpts in the game. I would much rather have seen some friendly figure boosting or true squad-killing ability than a very lame d20 special. Honestly, the only thing she's good for is a proxy if you want to use her as an evil Raelin.

I used her right off the bat with Realin's defence aura and some other defensive boosts such as Thorgrim and placed her right in the middle of a three way melee and proceeded to destroy Agent Carr, Kee-Mo-Shi, and some other powerful heroes. And their people while they kill her it took them quite some time. Too bad she isn't an Einar Kyrie or her and Empress Kiova with Realin would be a pain as they can all fly.

I think that avatar is quite funny.
AS for Runa - i think out of all the games i've played with her she may have destroyed one figure (if that) with her Helm of M.

Used her 6/23/07. Tied up all my oponents with 6 squads of zombies, and then sent her in the middle to wreak havoc if possible. She killed Major Q9 and then died- a good trade.
