Runes were used in ancient times by the Germanic and Norse-speaking peoples of northern Europe for inscriptions, magic, and fortune-telling. Now Rune Games introduces the Anglo-Saxon 'Rune Poem', and uses the runic letters as oracles, showing how the runes may be used like the Chinese / Ching for meditation and self-development as well as prophetic divination. There are eight games, arranged in order of increasing complexity, designed to stimulate the intellect and the imagination, releasing potentials which are hidden from the everyday, non-magical mind. Players can project the possible outcome of particular aspects of their lives, and, perceiving the degree to which they create their own fortune, they can take firmer control of their future. The authors Marijane Osborn first studied runes while researching her PhD on Beowulf at Oxford University, and has published a number of articles on runic inscriptions and the Old English 'Rune Poem'. Stella Longland worked in the theatre for five years before reading English at Lancaster University, and is currently running a business in North Yorkshire.
