Blood Runes


There are a number of strange symbols etched into rock scattered across The Maze. They appear to be painted with blood, and yet they glow with an eldritch light. Though off-putting, they also seem to be simply paintings on the wall, and easily destroyed with enough force.

They were identified by Captain Roderick Pennington-Smythe as a Petroglyph, and Rutherford Ellington Dillenger noted that they both bear spiral with a lightning bolt, recognised as the Petroglyph for Earthquake in them.
