I was thinking more God-Learner, myself. In general, I suspect non God-Learners are not so interested in decomposing and classifying using runes. I can see an Orlanthi saying "Barntar ploughs the fields", but not "Barntar uses the <whatever> rune to plough the fields". A Lhankor Mhy scholar might do so, but he could be working within a tradition that ultimately comes from the God-Learners.

Does the word "rune" even appear in (the Gloranthan-text parts of) Glorious ReAscent of Yelm, Fortunate Succession or Entekosiad as indications of powers or abilities, rather than simply as the special symbol or name for a particular deity? I do not recall any instances.
