Runedraw tool for windows (Wyrd for Windows)

Hey, I recently purchased this game via the big expensive box-set that was available, and as I have been reading the core rulebook and then through the adventure Fafnir's Treasure, I accidentally managed to recruit more players than I had runebags available.

So to compensate, I let the players use my metal runes I got from the set.

So I ventured out to make myself a tool that allows me to wyrd runes without using actual runes.
The result was this program of mine:

I took the liberty of using the Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok cover art, with Andrews name on it, because I have no intention of asking for money for my work, and I intend to give this out freely to every player and Norn who wants it.

The current limitation of the app is that it requires a windows platform and .net installed.

This is what it looks like

And if you ask for... like 8 runes, it looks like this

I added an option that let you split your draws if you use 2 bags of runes.

In the 8 rune situation you take 4 from each bag and displays them, this allows duplicate runes.
Otherwise no duplicate results are displayed.

The tool:

If you wonder why it says "Unknown Publisher", its simply because I have not paid to get it certifed, that is all.

Code: Select all

Changelog:

1.0.0.2:           Polished "UI", made it pretty.

I would suggest drawing a "tile" around the rune to set it off a little better from the background.

Do you mean around the rune itself, or a rectangle around the rune? :)

Yes, but not transparent. A solid grey rectangle to fill in the area and get visual separation

I see, ok. I can do that, I actually went out of my way to clear out the gray box behind the runes. But I see the reasoning behind it.

Putting it back. Updating in progress.
