I have recently submitted a retooled version of Runelords that returns it to its original length from the first demo years ago. I've stripped out a lot of the chaff from the firstprojectitis from which this game suffered. It's still pretty lame but it's better now!
Download is available
I cut out the bevy of "systems" (leaving only the Rune system), dropped the CMS, cut out the non-sensical (and non-plot advancing) sidequests, reworked the dialogue, recoded the battles and enemies, and fleshed out the gameplay in ways that are suited to the story. I also removed as much RTP as I could.
The game is playable (hopefully!) right up into the Skytower.
The Menu system for Runes is NOT explained in game!

Press Enter to equip an unclaimed rune. Press enter again on it to unequip. Press Escape to exit. If that player isn't in the party, you cannot open their rune menu.
The current mastery shown is that of the person's whose icon is in the upper right.
