Undead Horde 2 Necropolis Runes, Effigies and Secrets

Simply some lists of things worth finding in Undead Horde 2.

1000 words paints a picture

As will be obvious, I have decided not to use lots of screenshots in these lists. My hope is that the descriptions can be followed without creating something that will be bogged down with images. If anything is unclear, let me know in the comments how it could be improved. Thanks.

My suggestion for using this is to hit Control-F and search for what you need.
