Runaskald/Runesmith Compendium Class
This was inspired mostly by the Runesmiths in Kevin Hearnes Iron Druid Chronicles (who are inspired by Norse myths) and Warhammer Runesmiths. Toss in a bit of the BW Runecaster and DSA Runemagic and you get this.
If a Runesmith knows what you will be up against he will be crazy effective in supporting his allies. A Dragonhunter decked out in a Rune of Fire Protection, with a Dragonbane Spear and a Rune of Caution will have good chances taking down a Dragon. This will of course take up all the Rune-control of the Skald and will cost 999 coins.
He is a bit like Batman, great when prepared.
The rune of Infiltration and of Hiding are based on the Invisibilty Cloak and shapechange girlde from the Nibelungenlied and make for great tools on a thief.
The runes don’t have to be dwarfen in your DW – it’s just what i took for inspiration.
I am still not sure about the entry requirement…
