BY ALL THAT IS HOLY YES!
I loved rune. The single player was ok, but the Multiplayer was crazy fun. To this day you can find many servers up with people playing the game. I used to own face in that one lol. I played pro Quake 2 and took many of the strategies from that to use in Rune, like timing item spawns. I remember one time using the giant 2h axe that froze people and I had the rune drops on one map timed so well I was able to essentially permanently freeze people. By the time the freeze began to wear off, I had full rune power again to re-apply it. Obviously people I did that too hated it, but me and my friends would laugh our asses off.
Rune 2, bring it on!
