Issue description
One thing that keeps bugging me about magic is that the spellbook doesn't display the names and meaning of runes. If you hover the cursor over a spell you will see its name in the top left corner of the book and its description in the top left corner of the screen. I think it would be appropriate to do the same thing for runes, display at least their name and possibly their meaning as well, somewhat like this: "Mega (improve)". This would make memorizing spells easier as well, because I would know what the rune combination actually means. Even from a role-playing standpoint, there is no reason the hero wouldn't write this down in his spellbook.
