The Armies of Europe fighting over the Runestaff

The Runestaff
is a manifestation of the Holy Grail and an Object of Power. It is a short staff carved with mysterius runes, similar to those adorning the Black Sword. Duke Dorian Hawkmoon's great quests and campaigns were largely centered on gaining control of the Runestaff in order to defeat the Dark Empire of Granbretan.
