Runestones are like the codex of a clan's past history, brought to the battlefield to help the clan in its present-day conflicts. There is a power in stories, and the Dwarves' lengthy sagas have a purpose beyond self-gratification: when chanted with the proper words, these eddas have been known to strengthen the wills and mend the wounds of their clansmen.

Kaspar's Comment

A Runestone will usually be left at the site of a great victory, and passing Dwarven travellers will make sure to stop by and honour the heroes whose feats have been engraved in the stone.
