Runic hammers and runic sewing kits are available via BOD rewards. I had to add these in myself, and made no attempt to be OSI accurate, so I thought I'd post a list of the properties each one gives. Remember to use the same type of material as the hammer or sewing kit. In other words, use gold ingots with gold hammers, barbed leather with barbed sewing kits, etc.

Awesome! Do you have any plans to add runic fletching?

Eventually I'd like to. It'd follow the same pattern as runic Saws which, btw, at this time are not available. I just put that in there so it's documented

Posting for future reference:

I received a bronze runic hammer from a 20x exc agapite BOD. I crafted weapons/armor with it to compare to what I looted on monsters.

Full looted invulnerable platemail with invulnerable norse helm and Ankh Shield was 93 armor. Full crafted bronze runic platemail with bronze runic norse helm and Ankh Shield came to 94 armor. So bronze runic armor is better than lootable invuln.

A looted eminently accurate vanq broadsword (gives +15 tactics) gave my character 12-73 damage. A crafted bronze runic broadsword (fortified, surpassingly accurate, might- gives + 10 tactics) gave my character 14-81 damage. So a bronze runic is better than lootable vanq.

The indestructible, Invulnerability Ankh Shield which you can steal gave me 19 armor. A crafted bronze runic metal kite shield gave my character 28 armor. So bronze runic shield is better than lootable invuln. However a lootable invuln heater shield gave my character 31 armor so it's better still. (I suspect that if I had crafted a heater shield, it would beat out the looted shield).

Hope this helps future crafters.

I received a horned runic sewing kit from a 15x exc 6 part plain leather LBOD (male leather set).

My tamer was wearing looted full invuln leather armor which gave me an AR of 48. I crafted a full horned runic leather set which gave me an AR of 64.

My dexxer was wearing looted full invuln studded armor with a invuln leather cap which gave me an AR of 51. I crafted a full horned runic studded armor set with horned leather cap which gave me an AR of 67.

So it appears exc horned runic armor will be 16 AR points over looted invuln.
