Blood Rune is all about combining the best of two worlds. The joy of holding cards in your hands and syncing your collection to the Blood Rune App. You can hold our physical game close to your heart, but just wait until you plug into it! ;)

We’ve been carefully crafting Blood Rune since late 2020, writing, drawing, playtesting and developing the Blood Rune App. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. We’re delighted to show you what’s coming.We’re hard at work crafting the game’s Core Gameplay, Bestiary, Lore, Pantheons of gods and heroes, and the Game Economy.

The Spirits in the world are infinite. We have descended from the very stones that pave the belly of Ár Tímans, the Sky River. Yet every stone within the Sky River is unique. Most are ordinary, smoothed over by the passage of time and indistinguishable from their neighbor. But a number of stones are special — they are not content to lay frozen in their place, rather they yearn to find another place in the river, cast to their rightful place by the unerring arm of Fate. These stones bear a hidden mark, a Blood Rune, that knows the light of their Spirit, but also betrays the darkest corners of their Mind. It is the work of the Shaman to learn all 24 Blood Runes, for they are the window to the Spirit.
