The runic cross uses six runes picked at random from your bag or pile. These are then laid out in the form of a single vertical made up of four runes, with a rune on either side of main axis. The first rune is laid on the left, the second from bottom. The third is on the right, the fourth is placed at the base of the central column. The fifth rune is second from top and, finally, the sixth is placed at the top of the cross.
