Runetha Saetedz (817866) was a legendary Vargr adventurer/pirate/scout whose exploits are bedtime reading for young Vargr throughout Regina Subsector, Uthe Subsector, and Dirgir Subsector.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The religion itself is strongly focused on heroic endeavors, felt to be the way of a True Life here and a glorious afterlife. Study of Runetha's history – and the history of other heroes, Vargr and Human – is a required tenet of the religion, as is the Aiding of all True Heroes, the pursuit of at least one Quest in your life, and the support of the Runetha Brotherhood above all worldly loves.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Dying from old internal wounds, he managed to lead his band to a heroic victory on Menorb (Spinward Marches 1803), but died soon after.

Soon after his death, his followers founded the Runetha Society to keep alive his memory and his philosophy. As his fame grew, they built the Greater Thatho Temple in the Dro-Zhemm Hills (on Menorb), and spread his philosophy throughout the region.

The Temple is the central site of the Runetha religion, now run by the High Runetha Federation of Holy Adventurers. The temple itself is a circular building, of about 25 m length, 5 m in height, with a concave roof. Of strong interest is what's above the temple: a large, floating, glowing yellow ball, of about 30 m diameter. It is quite bright (one cannot look at it directly within 50 meters), and can easily be mistaken for a second sun.
