All just flavour text, this never had any bearing on the game mechanics, and
in my opinion it never needed to either. In Glorantha, the runes are too
powerful and abstract for all but the most extraordinary heroes to have a
direct relationship with, and no version of RuneQuest has ever been able to
represent Harrek in game terms. Players connect to runes via the gods.
