Most numerous of the darkspawn are the stocky, tough genlocks, who are notoriously difficult to kill. Runners appear to have a bronze-color to their armor, separating them from normal genlocks.
Nimble and quick, these small genlocks are used as bait for traps. Very few are encountered, most in the Deep Roads.
- Fast running.
Their quickness makes these genlocks ideal for leading unwitting adventurers into an ambush. When confronted with the retreating runner, the best choice ironically may be to ignore it and scout around for where the true danger lies. Runners themselves are comparatively weak in combat, and should fall easily once the true threat has been neutralized.
