The Rune Master is fearsome warrior. He imbues his axe with Runic Magic.
The Rune Master is one of the final Upgrade Paths for Dwarfs. A Venerable Warrior upgrades to a Rune Master when the Rune Hall has been built in your capital. The Rune Master attacks with Axes and possesses the ability to attack twice round. Although they have more HP than the Dwarf King, the Rune Master does not have any armor, nor does it have the wards that the Dwarf King has.
