Add the following rule to the ruleset, entitled Meta Magic:
Spells can be cast vertically as well as horizontally. If the GNDT workbench records for several consecutively-listed Apprentices, when read vertically from top to bottom using runes in the same workbench position, forms a configuration that would - if it were found horizontally in a single Apprentice’s workbench - have an effect as defined elsewhere in the ruleset, then it forms a meta-magical structure.
Any Apprentice whose workbench contains a rune that is part of a meta-magical structure may apply the effect (which will be the same as the horizontal equivalent of that rune combination) of that structure on all of the players whose runes form a part of that meta-magical structure, including themselves. This effect may not be invoked for a meta-magical structure any more often than its horizontal equivalent.
