Cold Tolerance

The Rune Runner has a special ability to resist the cold weather inside the Valley of the Hidden Dinosaur. This means they will be able to move at their normal speed there unlike other horses who are slowed down.

Unique Features

Hairstyles

The Rune Runner has a unique forelock, mane, tail and feather style.

  • The Forelock is collected in the middle of the horses forehead and has a wavy texture.
  • The mane is plaited into single braided strands and is tied of with green hairbands
  • The Tail is plaited in the middle and is rolled into a bun with a colorful green and brown band wrapped around the middle.
  • The feathers on the back of each leg are braided in a French style.

Feathers

The Rune Runner sports moderate feathering on its legs. This long hair covering the horses' canon and fetlock means that the Rune Runner cannot wear leg wraps or open front boots in the game.
