It was only the quietest of sounds that made Marik stop. He looked around the sunny forest, no birds were singing in the trees and the undergrowth to his left moved slightly in a non-existant breeze.
"Who's there?", he said, his hand moving to the blade at his side.
"It is I, the Runewalker!" said the voice and a hooded figure appeared in front of Marik and had him at knife-point.
"What do you want from me?", the knife's tip dangerously close to his throat.
"Give me all your Runes!" the Runewalker hissed.
"Only over my dead body! Here! Eat my sword!" - and Marik, moving backwards quickly, drew his sword and struck at the hooded figure.
The illusion was gone. Marik blinked and rubbed his face.
Every day from Monday, 15 February 2010, through to Friday, 19 February 2010 The Runewalker will make his appearance somewhere on a randomly selected server and gives you a chance to win 1,000 Euro.
A GM character - The Runewalker - will appear randomly somewhere in Taborea*. The first player to challenge him to a duel wins a pack of five Golden Repair Hammers and one God's Redemption Ticket. It's not necessary to beat him in this duel - if you are the first to challenge him, you are entering a 1,000 Euro prize-draw!
After the last duel of the last day of the event we will draw an additional winner out of all players logged in during The Runewalker event. That means that you not only have the chance to win 1,000 Euro a day but an additional 1,000 Euro after the end of the event - just for logging in.
The Runewalker will appear at a random spot on any of the available server. Between 17:00h CET (4pm GMT) and 22:00h CET (9pm GMT) you will have up to 20 chances a day to challenge him to a duel. (For further information on participating in this event, please see our Conditions of Participation.)

*Please note that The Runewalker can appear randomly anywhere on any server at any time.
