Seasonal Game Mechanics

Change the behavior of the elite monster spawns for Slayer. Give them perked combat similar to player invention perks. Add unique items to their drop tables, which are only found during the season. The special seasonal items might come in form of themed loot-packs, behaving like the fire spirits or clue chests.
Rewards in these packs might include invention components, new uncommon seasonal items, etc. Example: Seasonal abyssal off-hand melee, abyssal range items, abyssal armor parts. These would be ideal for a rare seasonal abyssal drop.

Similar, the god wars bosses might seasonally drop items which have perked benefits, similar to invention perks, but the perk would degrade and the item would become the standard item type.

Artisan skills
The player would find their items accidentally receiving odd side effects. The items produced with these anomalous end-product should be tradable to that skill's guild-master for a special reward: temporary access to the special seasonal room of the guild. The seasonal room concepts:
- crafting might have a tanning banker
- smithing might have a furnace providing effects of blast-furnace or enchanted anvil where items don't cool while smithing.
- fletching might have a bench which performs fletching items at improved speeds.

Harvest Skills
A seasonally unseen spawn change. Players can find a unique item type which is randomly specific to the player. The harvest space will randomly produce the seasonal specialty item only when the player finds their special location.
- Fishing: Catch the trophy fish, which heals an amazing 2800. The trophy fish will be caught at random when fishing a seasonally rotating location, from shrimp pool, lobster cage, or other fishing hole. Players will only be able to find where to find this trophy fish by rotating their skilling to multiple fishing styles.

- Divination: Find fantastical memories from a seasonal rotating memory type. The fantastical memory might give extra energy, it might reward in a guthix enhancement buff, or other useful random bonus.

- RuneCrafting: Creation of runes via alter might produce a life rune. The life rune can be handed-in at the RuneCrafting guild for a perk, enhancement, or helpful item(s).

- Hunter: Find a rare pelt, butterfly spawn, or ancient chinchompa. These rare seasonal items can be used by players for unique benefits.
