Today's update brings a bucketload of new RuneScape content, for lore-lovers, circus performers and interface wranglers alike.
Mahjarrat Memories follows on from the Koschei's Troubles miniquest, and lets high-level lore fiends seek out the secrets of Senntisten's history.
Our Ninja Team have been hard at work on the Circus D&D, making as many of your requests happen as they can.
We've also brought you a big interface improvement: the ability to customise the Ribbon, so your most useful interfaces are fewer clicks away.

High-level miniquest, members only
Carrying on our lore-filled March, Mahjarrat Memories is a new miniquest for those who've discovered the secret history of Koschei the Deathless.
During its course, you'll be given a device which can collect and store residual memories lingering in ancient places, and will be tasked with gathering those of the Mahjarrat: some you'll know well, such as Sliske, Lucien and Azzanadra, and others you'll never have met before.
This miniquest will give you a deeper insight than ever before into the Second Age at the height of the Zarosian Empire, making this a real treat for lore lovers.
Rewards include both regular and bonus XP in Divination; an in-game book, filled with the memories you'll gather during the quest; a cosmetic override for your head; and an amazingly cute bobblehead pet, styled after a certain megalomaniacal Mahjarrat. On top of all that, you will also receive an item that could be very useful during the Fate of the Gods quest.
If you want to discuss the content of the Mahjarrat Memories, please keep spoilers limited to this thread.

D&D update, members only
Balthazar Beauregard's Big Top Bonanza (or simply the Circus) is one of RuneScape's best loved activities, and today we've released a show-stopping batch of your most-requested improvements, so it's easier to use, more rewarding and more fun than it's ever been.
If you've not tried the Circus before, it's a weekly opportunity to perform at Balthazar's Big Top for hefty XP rewards in Magic, Agility and Ranged (plus Thieving and Firemaking if you've completed certain quests), as well as some cool cosmetic rewards. It's quick, fun, and everything you need's right there at the Circus - what's not to like?
Here are the improvements we've introduced today:
- You no longer need to pick up and equip items for your performances.
- The Agility event has been improved, making it more rewarding for low-level players and bringing the XP rate for all players up slightly.
- All costume rewards will also unlock a cosmetic override.
- You don't need to talk to tutors to start each performance, and a large amount of non-essential dialogue has been made optional or removed entirely.
- The ringmaster cutscene will no longer play, if you've already seen it.
- A new interface will be shown during each performance, displaying your current score, which tricks that you've already performed and the current audience request.
- A bunch of other small fixes and tweaks - as requested by you.
We really hope you enjoy the newly streamlined Circus D&D. If you have any further ideas for how to improve it, let us know on the forums!

Last, but not least, you can now customise the Ribbon. That's the small interface element containing the buttons for the Hero, Powers and Adventures interfaces, among others.
Not only can you rearrange the icons that were already there, but you can also switch in icons that were previously locked into drop-down menus: the Prayers interface, for example. This means that you can put together a Ribbon that accesses the interfaces you want with just one click - even emulate the old-style 'stones' interface, if you wish.
To edit the Ribbon, click the new icon at its lower corner, near the padlock icon.
Have fun experimenting, and let us know how you get on, over on the forums.
