Rune-Draw is a game of chance similar to blackjack. You must play Rune-Draw against Robin during the Ghosts Ahoy quest. Robin will give you a signed oak longbow to pay off his debt when he owes you 100 coins.

The rules, according to Robin:

Two players take turns to draw a rune from a bag, which contains ten runes in total. Each rune has a different value: an air is worth one point, up to a Nature rune which is worth nine points. If a player draws the Death rune then the game is over, and they have lost. A player can choose to hold if they wish and not draw any more runes, but this runs the risk of the other player drawing more runes until they have a greater points total and win.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The numeric value of the runes increases as the level to craft these runes using the Runecraft skill increases.
  • It is not possible to play this game after the quest. When a player talks to Robin after the quest, he will ask for another game and the player will reply "No!"
