Runes are a powerups that spawn every even minute at either the bottom or top rune location. The respawn time is not affected by when it was consumed, meaning that it is theoretically possible to acquire two runes in a very short time without a Bottle, and up to three with a Bottle (though the chances of the rune spawning twice in the same area is uncommon).
Runes gives extra effects for a short amount of time. A Magical Bottle can be used to hold the runes for a limited amount of time before the rune is used up automatically. When an ally receives a rune all members of the team will receive a message informing the on who received what type of rune.
