Runekeeper HUD

A powerful runic spell-casting system for Second LifeĀ®


The last of the Rune Masters has died. Gone are the days when runes were openly available to use by just anyone. Your grandfather, who was the last to control the power of the runes, has left you a package in his will. A letter attached to the sack says "To my cherished grandchild, you are all that is left of the Rune Legacy. I hereby bestow the their power upon you, and grant you the title of Rune Keeper. You are the first Keeper, of whom are more powerful than Masters. Use it wisely, I trust you will do great things." You're the first of the new line of Rune Keepers - wielders of the ancient Runic text. This language uses symbolic letters and words to perform magical feats. Using the rune tablet you've inherited, you'll be able to cast ancient spells that are yours to wield.


  • All Powers are cast via the HUD.
  • To dispel any active spell, click the [DISPEL] button on any page of the HUD.
  • Spells can be cast on anyone from any distance in a sim. Please use this feature wisely.
  • The attachment is worn on your Right Hand or Right Forearm.
