Zaphirs still alive and kicking?

Ok, so I received a message from Skiboosh, also known as Wolfex, or also known as Zaphirs_Howl. He was searching for a link to his Rune clan on Lambshack, and oddly enough, it wasn't here! I'm actually embarrassed that I missed that. So we have resolved this issue, and you can find a link to the Zaphirs site here:

Italian Warriors

So if you've been playing Rune lately, you may have noticed the heavy activity on the Italian Warrior server. It's very glitchy, but it's always listed as being populated, so players tend to visit it before any other server out there. Players have the option of voting for the maps they wish to play on. I like that. It's a fun server, but it's kinda laggy there... :(

Also, you may have noticed a player engaged in "wall-hacking" or "dodge-hacking" or whatever it is. He moves at super-speed, and he's being a real nuisance, as he's also always fakenicking. zaza is the admin there, so if you can provide him with ideas for combating this, please let him know. Or just visit the Italian Warriors forum to leave them a message. More later. See you soon, guys! :)

The tournament is over. We have a winner!

Here is a statement posted by Frozn on Lambshack about the results of the tournament...

"Let me begin by thanking the entire Rune community for coming together to make this tournament the resounding success that it was, without your interest it would have never been possible. I'm proud to have been a part of a tournament that will be talked about for years to come.

Bringer of Pain won by a single frag in one of the longest and most intense battles that I've ever witnessed. I've been bad about making videos from my demorecs but I *WILL* convert this one as soon as possible."


European Match

Zyroloth: 15 Bringer of Pain: 6


U.S. Match

Bringer of Pain: 15 Zyroloth: 5


"In the beginning when I wrote the FAQ I said there would be no prizes given out. Well, I'm left with a veterans blood europe server that will be open for all to enjoy for the foreseeable future. Zyroloth, having won against a large crowd of very tough European players deserves the admin pass there. Bringer, having organized the tournament, already knows it. It's the least I can do for the EU side whose sportsmanship I greatly underestimated.

Bringer and I, having organized the tournament together, were given especially tough fights so that favoritism would not be suspected, and yet he rose through the ranks and earned a solid victory over every rune player that stood in his way. And although he comes out the winner and world champion, Zyroloth still has the right to be called the current European champion. Fights across oceans can never be as fair as we wish they could.

But regardless of who won and who was defeated, everyone who showed up and enjoyed their match deserves credit here, and I thank you all for making this possible. The strength of the Rune community 12 years later, as demonstrated by these massive turnouts, assures me that Rune will be alive and well for many more years."

The Games Have Begun!

I'm posting this rather late, but...what the hell. As posted by Frozn on Lambshack on July 12th....

"Let the games begin!

All 4 Veterans' Blood Servers are up and running. 3 US servers and 1 Eu server (maybe more to come) dedicated to the tournament. There is a special Tournament mod running on there that lets spectators in without needing a GamePassword. All fighters will receive a PM containing the Game Password.


Competitors simply need to find their opponent and can join a tournament server and begin their fight immediately. These servers are available 24-7. Spectating is encouraged so ask your friends to watch and read our howto on recording a match using Demorec in the Spectator Rules post.

*** To Winners: Please post a screenshot in a new topic here after the game is done to confirm your victory

If a pair of competitors need an admin for special terms during the fight, let us know and we will contact a serveradmin or give someone we trust a temporary admin pass for their match."

Veterans' Blood Tournament

Greetings, gents! If you wish to sign up for the Veterans' Blood Tournament, then take note that the deadline for doing so is July 13th, on a Friday.

As posted by Frozn here:

Tournament Rules:

1v1 Arena - First to 15 wins. Championship match will be 2 matches, 1 on each division's server.
Match location (US): [ToR - Mosh Pit]
Match location (EU): Possibly Er. Arena?
Server version: RuneHOV 1.07 Windows + 1.09 Mod
Security / AntiCheat: I will freshly build a unique version of the 1.09 mod per match to reduce the risk of cheating, server crashing, and other dip-shit-ery. This will ensure no bytehack can be done before the game.
Restrictions: None, unless the 2 fighters agree to special terms (such as no shields) before the map.
Spectating: Any player slots not used should be open for spectators, but spectators must obey the rules.
Deadlines: Once a match has been arranged, both fighters must complete the match within 14 days.

"1.07 was chosen because not everyone has bought Rune Classic. If both players have 1.10 and would prefer a 1.10 match this can also be arranged. Let the admins of your division server know ahead of time."

This post by Soren Bjerg is copied and pasted from

RUNE Classic on Steam!

"Also as announced earlier this week by Laurie "the DeepMinded" Wise, Goddess/Administrator, Human Head is requesting server hosts to contact them for prep information regarding MP. Server hosters should contact them at The new Steam 1.10 version includes a "compatability mode" to allow Rune 1.07 players to join 1.01 servers, which means the game basically needs to be restarted to allow the new executables to reload original packages."

So What Am I Up To Now?

So you might be wondering....what's el Saco Lambo up to now? Well, I just finished Final Exams, and got my grades for the semester. It looks like I did reasonably well, and will be returning to college in the Fall. What else? Well, my father and I will be moving. After dear old Mom passed away last year, we've decided to get a fresh start, so we'll be moving soon. We can't pay for two mortgages, so we have to move out. It blows, but what can you do?

What else? Well, I'll soon be seeing a Physical Therapist. I've had yet another injury over the past year, and I'm hoping they can help me to soothe my lower back pain. The doctor said that it isn't too serious (and is correctable), so I'm looking forward to PT, and solving this problem once and for all. I haven't been to the gym in two months, so it's time for some action!

Also, you guys might notice that my forum has been inactive. Don't sweat it. I've been so busy with school and with the stress of moving, that the forum just wasn't that important. This is why I love blogs. There's no pressure to update everything every fifteen minutes. Anyway, the forum is merely an experiment, since I wanted the opportunity to familiarize myself with the forum software, though I couldn't have created the forum without Frozn's assistance. Thanks, man!

In any case, have no fear, guys. I'll be keeping the blog semi-regularly updated, and try to keep the forum spam-free, for those that ever need to post something. Anyway....more to come soon.

Final Exams

So I'm studying for Final Exams, and I'm going stir-crazy here. I seriously wonder if I have some form of adult ADD. It is so ridiculously hard to just sit here, and study. I want to run around outside or play computer games. Or sleep. Anything but this. I guess I just have to suck it up, as it's only a few more days before summer vacation. C'est la vie...

A Sequel To Rune?

Okay. It's recently come to my attention that there's a new Facebook Page for Rune. This is what it says....


Official Facebook Page of the cult hit classic Rune!


In RUNE, players assume the role of Ragnar the Viking, mightiest warrior of a bygone age. In an age when might makes right, it is Ragnar who doles out justice on the blade of his massive battle-axe. Players will explore beautiful settings both above and below the mountains of the far north as Ragnar fights his way through several stunning and unique kingdoms to an ultimate confrontation with the Sark Amen, the shadowy warrior-masters of the netherworld. Players will have to use their brains as well as their mass brawn to survive this third-person perspective game as they explore the fully 3D game world fighting off fantastic creatures from both Norse legend and the fertile minds of the Human Head staff with their array of swords, axes and magical devices.

They then make the statement:

"We are considering a sequel to the cult hit classic Rune!"

Personally, I'm going to reserve judgement on this statement, because it doesn't really tell us anything yet. Will there be a sequel to Rune? Maybe, yes. Maybe, no. We'll see. This might just be an epic tease. But I will say that I'm curious about what Human Head is up to, and I do hope we get a sequel...

P.S. Here's the link to the Facebook group:

Runegame Website Update

Ok, guys. Some potential news. This is a post copied verbatim from dirty~Bob on the dirty clan website...

From Laurie:

I just got word the website server developed a significant coding issue/bug for 2K techs to fix right now due to it's great age. Why it has been down for so long.

In the meantime, Human Head has decided to create a new website for the Rune Game Community under a new name: "". For now, only a "Head" page is showing but forums and more pages will appear shortly. You can find the holding page here:

I'll send more info as soon as possible.

Steam Has A Rune Group. Who Knew?

I hope you precious readers can forgive me. When it comes to certain technical matters, I'm completely retarded. Until last night, I didn't even know that there was a Rune group on Steam. Hell, I would not even have a Steam account (which I rarely use) if my kid brother hadn't set it up for me. So, yeah. There it is, and now you know. The group is called:

Rune Multiplayer Gameplay

Here's another Rune video posted onto youtube. It's an entertaining video, but I wish it was a little brighter, and a little less grainy. Still cool though. :)

Runegame Is STILL Down!

I cannot believe that the runegame site is still down. This has gone on for a looooong time. This bothers me. That site was intended to be the central hub of the game. Instead, the Rune community is totally decentralized, and scattered all over the place. We live in strange days, fellow Rune warriors...

Korgoth of Barbaria

Here's a video of a short-lived cartoon that should have been made into a full-length series. Long live Korgoth!!

Rune Walkthrough Part 1 (Village)

Every once in a while, I feel like posting videos for Rune. They can sometimes be instructional. Here, we're presented with an introduction. This video and accompanying text was originally posted by 2Seatroll2 on youtube:

"This is my Rune walkthrough, i hope you enjoy it. This walkthrough also can help if you stuck somewhere in this game and don't know where to go.

Difficulty - medium.

Part 1.
Exploration of the village and trial.

Ragnar is a young Viking warrior just coming of age. As his father prepares him for the final rites of manhood, the atmosphere of his village is tense as stories of recent raids on neighboring villages. These raids were particularly brutal, as the women-folk and children were slaughtered and the villages burned to the ground. Conrack, a cruel chieftain and follower of Loki, is said to be the cause of the raids, and his name is now spoken now only in whispers for fear that he will appear, like some evil spirit, as if from thin air. Ragnar's village is dedicated to the worship of Odin, all-father of the gods, and ruler of Asgard, the Viking heaven.

Ragnar begins his rite of manhood, but as a young warrior, he has much to prove. He fulfils his ritual, but he will not be a true warrior until he can be blooded in battle. Before the dust of the rite has settled, however, word comes of another raid at a village close by. The warriors of Ragnar's village are called upon to put an end to Conrack and his evil. Ragnar's father joins the raiding party, as does Ragnar, as the newest warrior of his village. It is Ragnar's wish to prove his manhood in valorous battle and gain entry into Valhalla.

The fate of the Norns is never what men expect, however, and the men of Ragnar's village sail off not into valor, but into a raging storm. (From official site)"

Babylon A.D. vs Touch & Go - Straight to number one

Here's a sensual video put together by a member on youtube. Clips from Babylon A.D. mixed together with the music of Touch And Go - "Straight To...Number One (Dreamcatcher's Mix)". Great, sexy music. Don't know who the girl is, but she is fine...

A Bit Of An Update..

Hey, guys! I've updated the Rune links a bit. After getting slapped around on the Eternal Resistance server, I decided to add a link to their website. I've also added the new link to the WAR clan, after their team engaged in a bit of deviltry, and made a brief return to Rune just a few days ago. More to come soon...
