This Month


This month in RuneScape you will be able to take place in our Christmas event "A Towering Feast"!
This year's special festive event focuses on the Wizards of Wizards' Tower! You will be able to party with the wizards, play in the snow, and unlock rewards including a special emote, a new wand and even a brand new pet.
That's not all for this month! Get ready for a newly-reworked Wilderness, including lighting and lava effects. Here's a teaser of the concept art for the rework:


The Rogues' Den is being revamped - get ready for the Flash Powder Factory! You will be able to take part in a brand new agility arena and compete for new rewards including unique armour which gives benefits to Herblorists.
Members will be able to unlock a whole new set of loyalty rewards, including Tier 3 auras and even a new Tier 4 aura. There will also be new costumes, titles and emotes!
To help you save up for these, we are running a '12 Days Of Christmas' scheme. Between Christmas Day 2011 and January 5 2012, you will receive an additional 500 loyalty points for each day that you log into a members' world. That could net you a total of 6,000 additional loyalty points!
Further improvements this month will include thirty additional bank spaces for members, an upgrade to the in-game conversation interfaces, a toolbelt for more efficient resource training, a money pouch to carry your coins, and many more!
For even more details about what you can expect to see in December, check out the full Behind The Scenes article here:
Behind The Scenes - December


We hope you enjoy it!

RuneFest 2011


We had high hopes for RuneFest and the event surpassed all of them. We couldn't have predicted just how well it would go!
We had a fantastic time meeting all of the players who came along, and we hope all of the attendees enjoyed it just as much as we did.
Here's our official highlights video showing some of the best moments of the weekend.


Check out this video about the special cake that was constructed for the event by the bakers from TV's 'Ace of Cakes':


Mod MMG was joined on the main RuneFest stage by Chief Operating Officer Dan Clough and Chief Customer Officer Richard Murray for this informative session about how we broke the bots:


You can find all of these, as well as even more RuneFest clips and a wide selection of other videos, on our official RuneScape YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/runescape/

I wrote up a blog of my own experiences throughout the weekend. You can find it over in the RuneFest forum:

Clan Update -
Clan Pride!

by Mod Timbo
It's been an incredible couple of months since we launched Clan Pride towards the end of September. We've had an amazing selection of images sent in to us over the last couple of months and we're going to showcase some of the best ones sent in to us. We're closing entries for this current Clan Pride and looking to launch it bigger and better next year!
We've had t-shirts, wristbands, mouse mats, pens and even tattoos of your clan's logo and a real live, full sized vexillum at a music festival! It's been great to see the creativity and diversity out there in the clan community.
Here are a few of our favourite submissions:




Thank you to everyone that submitted a picture this time round, we've enjoyed seeing the dedication and commitment that everyone has to their clan ľ it was truly amazing. I'm sure that next year's will be even more clantabulous!

Community Submissions


We regularly feature a selection of original works created by members of our amazing community.
Recently we passed 100,000 subscribers to our official YouTube channel. To celebrate, we asked our viewers to submit a video of their own - and this is a compilation of the entries people sent in!
We loved seeing every single one of these clips, whether it was a few seconds in front of a grainy webcam, or a mini-movie complete with special effects! :)

Leave a comment if you see yourself in there (or if there's a particular clip that makes you laugh... or cry!)

Quiz Quest Results


Each month, the Quiz Quest tests your knowledge about the RuneScape world. There are prizes for five winning entries and we hope that you all enjoy hunting for the answer.
Thank you to all of you who entered the November Quiz Quest competition!
The correct answer to last month's Quiz Quest was this:
Q. What was the applicant's name in One Piercing Note?
A. Isabella.

Well done to those of you who got it right!
This month, congratulations go to *drum roll*... Reincarnated, whose entry was the first one to be selected. We are delighted to give him three months' complimentary membership to RuneScape and a voucher to order some merchandise from the Jagex Store.
The following four players are the runners up, each winning one month of RuneScape membership:

  • Aynonymous

  • Divine UK

  • Debonnys

  • Krazeemee

We choose the winners at random, so if you didn't win this time, try again!


This month's Quiz Quest:

Which skull-faced character is going through a bit of a fungal spell?


Once you have the answer, post it on the December Quiz Quest thread or send it to us by email at competitions@jagex.com - and if you could include the words 'quiz quest' in your subject header it will really help us to spot your email! If you are under 13, please ask a parent or guardian to send your entry in on your behalf, from their contact email address.
Please remember to include your RuneScape account name with your answer if you submit by email - that way we will know who should be rewarded for their fact-finding power!
The competition will close on Friday 23 December 2011 - so get your answer in as soon as you can.
Good luck finding out the answer!

Introducing Mod Jane!


Hello, I'm Mod Jane! :)
I recently joined the RuneScape Team and thought it was about time I introduced myself.
I started out life here at Jagex in Player Support, then moving into Community Management working with the 8Realms team. Not too long after that I moved into the Social Networking Team and today I moved into the RuneScape Team in Community Management.
Outside of Jagex, I have been playing RuneScape for almost 7 years and have a few 99 skills... I really must work on the rest! I'm more of a skiller than a killer, although I used to make an exception for bots in the wildy! ;)
RuneScape and its community have been a passion of mine for a very long time, so working here at Jagex and on the RuneScape team is just awesome!
I look forward to bumping into you all on the forums and in-game very soon!
See you soon! ^_^
