move. Any major accomplishment is unlikely now. Concentrate on keeping up, not
trying to get ahead. There may be some outdated habit or idea that you need to
relinquish, so that the thaw will follow. This Rune may symbolize a rogue, a
mystic, a scoundrel, a corpse, or the spirit of one already crossed over into
