About This Game

You take on the roles of both the sorcerer and the thief in this single player open world fantasy rpg.

​The Port city of Lewyst has become the dingy, crime-infested underbelly of the Realm. Two rival crime chapters vie for influence, while noble families fight over the Barony. At the centre of everything lies a new potion, so addictive that it enslaves all who take it. ​Talesin, the very capable, yet very flawed ‘watcher’, is dispatched by the Sorcerers Guild to investigate. As our wayward sorcerer delves into an emerging conspiracy, he forms an unlikely alliance with the young Olwyna Vrak, member of the powerful yet declining Vrak crime dynasty.

Runes are the building blocks of magic. Sorcery is an integral part of the game. As you explore the world you'll learn more about Runes and how they work.
Find Rune Scrolls to add to your spell book, learn to change your form into different animals, explore the many Planes and try your hand at the art of Plane building. As you grow your abilities and improve your standing within the Sorcerers Guild, you'll begin the journey to solving the mystery over what Runes truly are.

The Realm offers a new and exciting open world, rich in characters, stories, friends and foe. You will need to develop both Talesin and Olwyna to survive the more difficult sections of the map, with exploration tracked and rewarded through our in-game card system. Attaining certain items will only be possible through a combination of finding the right blueprint, getting the materials, knowing the right master tradesman, and finally getting your hands dirty and making it yourself. Don't expect to just find it sitting in a chest somewhere.

Runes is also the name of our card minigame. It mirrors the game itself, where opponents build parties around a hero character, using items, spells and combat moves to defeat each other. Meeting certain characters, finding items, or learning new spells and combat moves will grant you that relevant playing card. These are spread throughout the map. Consider it our way of tracking your completion of the game and our reward system for exploring.

Our illustrated stories are a prelude to the main storyline. They introduce you to our wide cast of characters, showing part of their backstory and setting them up for the main storyline. Our lore pages introduce you to the customs, traditions and knowledge you will come across as you explore the Realm and its inhabitants. Learn more about Runes, Sorcery, Planes, politics, Gods and more on our website.
