Re: Embodiment of a God

The Royal Jelly isn't Jiyva. It's the only worshipper of Jiyva, unless the player chooses to also worship. Bit of a difference.

Still, I imagine TRJ is not far off from Jiyva's appearance. And that's a good look for Kiku.

Re: Got 4 runes, what now?

If you've never won before, just go to Zot and rack up a win. Trying for fifteen for your first win is not wise, imo. If you can find another source of rF equip that for Orbs of Fire, otherwise you should be set.
