This Month in RuneScape


Fremennik Wallpaper
June sees the release of the long-awaited Fremennik Sagas update.


The immortal storyteller, Skaldrun, has been trapped in the frozen floors of Daemonheim for centuries. Players who free him from this chilly prison will gain the opportunity to literally step into the shoes of the protagonists of his Fremennik Sagas, and take on their unique abilities while living out their tales.
To start this quest you will need a Dungeoneering level of 6 or above - so if you haven't yet braved the depths of Daemonheim, there's no better time to get a team together and see what challenges await!


Also coming in June: a new item slot, invading trolls, sea monsters, and a Jagex loyalty reward scheme! Check out the Behind The Scenes update for more information! :)

Players' Gallery





We are about to launch the 23rd edition of our Players' Gallery! Keep your eyes peeled during the next week to see whose submissions impressed us the most.
If you would like to be featured in Gallery 24 then please send your pictures to gallery@jagex.com as email attachments in any of these standard image formats: .jpg, .gif, .png. Please note we cannot accept any links to images.
If you would like some inspiration you might look to the Fremennik Isles - but don't worry if the Fremennik are not the people for you. We will accept anything for consideration as long as it is RuneScape-related! :D

Clan Update


Community Events Roundup
Over the past couple of months we've been working around the clock to bring the clan community, and the community as a whole, a number of different types of events and competitions to get you involved and excited about the clan updates. Here's a quick roundup of what has been going on and how you can still get involved with them!
Clan Celebration Month - Throughout March we celebrated the clan community through spotlighting some of the most famous, underrated and hard-working clans, events like our Bonus XP Weekend challenges and our Clan Personality Test that you can still take part in.
Skilling Ladder - A persistent league table of the finest skilling clans in RuneScape started as a Beta early in April. Using the same format as the Jagex Clan Cup 2010 to fight the skill wars, it's currently progressing and still accepting new clans for Season 1 which doesn't end until October!
Skilling Challenges - Launched during the end of May, we've launched a full-scale assault on skills within RuneScape, challenging clans and individuals alike across a range of tasks. The best average XP, most levels gained, most 99s or simply those who tried their hardest - there are RuneScape goody bags on offer and the chance for your clan to have your own motif added to the game.
As always, this is just a taste of what we've done over the past couple of months and there is even more planned with our Rated Clan Wars Tournament coming in June and much more! Keep an eagle-eye kiteshield on the RuneScape homepage for our events. :)

Clan Spotlight



Each month we will be using this section to showcase original writing from the clan community.

This month's Spotlight is shining on the following piece by Dart Plegius:


The story of the Star Hunting clan "w31 Stars"


One night a little girl sat there, on top of the roof of her house. 5 storeys high, yes. But no vertigo. No fear at all. The magic feeling from looking at the stars made it all worth being there.
"Ghia! Get off the roof! You have to go now!"
The little girl didn't hear him. Or pretended not to. The magic feeling was too strong.
Suddenly, her eye caught a star, so magnificent, so large. She couldn't believe her eyes. It became larger and larger and larger, when at a certain point she knew that it wasn't a star sticking to the skies, but rather falling down. At this time the star was already near her. In fear she panicked and disappeared, shocked awake again by a tremendous shaking of the roof.
Boom!
She looked down from the roof. A huge rock, right there, sitting in the field with the other rocks. Inhabitants came outside to see what was going on, but didn't notice the huge rock in the rock field, and returned to their business. But the girl ran down the stairs.
"Quick, I must see the rock!"
She ran to the rock, but to her surprise it was an ordinary rock. Disappointed, she made as if to return, but she heard a loud scream from within the rock.
"Help me! Help!"
Quickly she tried to get everyone else from the village to help her, but the inhabitants couldn't hear the cry of the thing. She angrily took a pickaxe and mined the rock. All night long. Still hearing the scream.
"Help! Help!"
After she fully broke the rock open, a strange yellow creature said with his dying breath;
"Thank ... you ..." and passed away.
The inhabitants were shocked. The girl was out of her mind. All the found gems couldn't satisfy her. She talked to everyone of the event, and they believed her. Soon, a huge amount of followers were standing by to free any creature from a rock from the skies. To this day, only one creature has passed away, and the clan swore to never let that happen again.

This is the story of W31 Stars.

This month's featured thread is all about Community Management. We've been taking a close look at everything we do to support you, and we're making some improvements that should help us to support and engage with the players in a much more hands-on and effective way.
To help us achieve this there have been some personnel changes, and we've made the following thread so you can get to know a bit about everyone in the Community Management team.

Quiz Quest


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 May Quiz Quest competition!
The correct answer to last month's Quiz Quest was this:
There are 22 vexillum stands in the Clan Camp.
Well done to those of you who got it right!
This month, congratulations go to *drum roll*... Dart-On, whose entry was the first one to be selected. We are delighted to give him three months' complimentary membership to RuneScape and a RuneScape mouse mat signed by Mark Gerhard and a selection of other J Mods.
The following four players are the runners up, each winning one month of RuneScape membership:

  • Bill Nye

  • A Meat Ball

  • ImTheScourge

  • Jhteo

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


This month's Quiz Quest:
The new Wildstalker Helmet can be obtained from Mr Ex in Edgeville - but he isn't wearing one himself. What is depicted on the hat he is wearing?


Once you have the answer, post it on the June 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 24th June 2011 - so get your answer in as soon as you can.
Winner
The winner will receive a complimentary 3 months' membership to RuneScape and a RuneScape mouse mat signed by Mark Gerhard and a selection of other J-Mods.
Runners-up
The four runners-up will receive one month's RuneScape membership.
All winners will have their names posted in the next edition of the Gielinor Globe!
So, good luck finding out the answer!
