Runic - always Condensed?

I've only ever seen Runic (Adobe) as "Runic MT Compressed", but I'm wondering if there was ever a non-compressed version of Runic, or if there's a recent uncompressed equivalent? I look for the distinctive ends on the capital C and G...

Searching the forums here I found a few references to Runic apparently being stretched manually for book covers, logos, etc, but I wondered why this would need to be done at all - usually a demand for a particular typeface doesn't go unsatisfied for very long. So I can't help feeling there must be something already out there...

Combined runic and Hebrew

This is a continuation on the post at http://www.typophile.com/node/94050, where I showed one way in which I approached the design task.
See here the samples of variations (images DKseraphyrGIF and DKzyrfarkGIF), including a version with greater conveyance of the runic style that I mentioned.
