    At the bottom of the bank box of a seldom used character I found a rune book which says
    A Runebook Made by Lord Peace [Exceptional]

    Runebooks like this were created between November 23, 1999 in Publish 1 when runebooks were added to the game and December 10, 1999 Publish 1 Update 1 when they removed the [Exceptional] tag and changed it to the "of exceptional quality" tag. They are the runebook equivalent of Sewn by clothing or Made by armor.

    Thank you.
    I'm willing to part with this object if anyone is interested. It's on Europa.

    I would be interested in it. I have no idea what it is worth though. Shoot me an icq and we can surely work something out. Thanks

    Me neither, rares is not my 'thing'. Perhaps one of the experts here would be kind enough to give us a rough idea.

    My general pricing experience with [exceptional] runebooks is 3m to 5m unless they have a popular name - either historically or aesthetically.
