They did. I don't remember for sure if Ultima I did, but my Ultima
][ map (which is hanging on my wall :) has runes on it.

However, the Ultima runes are not Elder Futhwark- very very similar,
but a few characters are changed. This tends to confuse me because I
can read both Ultima runes and norse runes, but sometimes I get
confused if I try to read both within a short time period.
