Runes can refer to various different gameplay mechanics for Dwarfs:

Total War: Warhammer[]

Total War: Warhammer II and Total War: Warhammer III[]

  • Character Runes - these are essentially a special type of item, unique to Dwarfs, which can be equipped to characters. Each character has 3 slots for Character Runes.
  • Banner Runes - similar to runes in the first game, except they are crafted at The Forge and have much greater effects
  • Runic Magic - this is basically a lore of magic (spells) for Runelords and Runesmiths, but they have a system of cooldowns rather than using Winds of Magic. Essentially this is an overhaul and upgrade of the Rune character abilities from the first game.
