    Anyone have any info about the runebook in the pic? It weighs 7 stones as opposed to the standard 1 stone all other runebooks weigh. It is also missing the Exceptional tag which you would normally see on a runebook with 20 charges.

    I have a few odd runebooks like this myself, one was infact made by an EM that has a weight of 20 stones, and another that has a weight of 12 stones that acts like a container when placed on a vendor only. I would try placing it on a vendor and seeing if you can open it like a container. Mine shows nothing inside and when opened and displays a leather bag style graphic.

    There was a bug a very very long time ago that let us drop stuff into our runebooks that didn't belong there (ie: items that were not runes). It was fixed rather quickly but maybe your books still hold some ancient treasure!

    Yeah, what flutter said. At one point you could add non-rune items to a runebook. I don't know if a GM or Dev could "remove" those items or not.
