Although rune does not appear in the Entekosiad, Ideograms do and they have the same purpose as runes. Likewise the runes are prominent on the Gods Wall and also make up the very alphabet that Plentonius was writing with. Now it is true that the ideograms and the Dara Happan runes are different from the God Learner and Orlanthi sets, the classical runes can still be used to desrcibe them without any loss in accuracy (in much the same way as the Roman alphabet could be used to represent Chinese).

Daxdarius founded an Empire which was the biggest of its kind and the Spolite Empire was a pretty terrifying example of imperial ambition. And if you expand Pelandan to include any worshipper of the High Gods, then the Idovanus worshipping Carmanians are pretty successful imperialists.
