The Runestaff (artefact)

From Michael Moorcock's Wikiverse
Jump to navigationJump to search

A small staff the length of a shortsword, dull black coloured with a mottled, deep blue. Gives off a bittersweet smell and, when inhabited by the Spirit of the Runestaff, a shifting light. Artefact said to contain all the secrets of destiny and the greatest power one can call on when making an oath. Believed to control all of human history. After he had gained the Sword of the Dawn, Dorian Hawkmoon learned from the Warrior in Jet and Gold that it was in Dnark. After the Battle of Londra it was taken by Orland Fank for safekeeping. It was seen by Hawkmoon during the Battle of Londra when the Time Wind blew.
