Ask Us Anything about Quests!
With 199 quests, there's a heck of a lot to talk about.
That's why we've set up two Q&A sessions for you. In the AMA, you can ask anything you like about RuneScape lore, as well as anything else about what makes up a quest be it graphics, audio, narrative, QA or development. The live forum Q&A is on the 200th quest. For both, there'll be plenty of JMods on hand to take your questions.
- AMA: Wednesday 18th March at 18:00 UTC on the RuneScape Subreddit
- Forum Q&A: Wednesday 25th March at 18:00 UTC in the Lore Discussion forum.
On Saturday 28th March, you'll have the chance to prove you're RuneScape's best quester.
We'll be tracking the number of quest points gained from 00:00 UTC on Saturday 28th March until 23:59 UTC Sunday 29th March.
The player with the most quest points gained will be crowned King/Queen of the Questival and will gain access to the Questival King or Questival Queen title - along with a whole host of other prizes!
There are no-sign ups as we'll be tracking this for all players. If you're new to quests, then there's never been a better time to start. If you're a grandmaster, then get yourself a new account to maximise your chances - we'll add the title to your main account if you win!
Celebrate RuneScape's quests in style with JMod events happening over the two weeks.
If you can muster the courage, be sure to head along to the Broken Home mansion on World 23 at 15:00 UTC on Friday 20th March to take part in a Broken Home speed-run! It's our first re-playable quest, so even if you've completed it before you can still take part and prove your worth!
Mod Lee's running a One Small Favour Hide and Seek event, today at 20:30 UTC on World 37.
That's not all we'll be running regular events throughout the week. Be sure to check out the JMod in-game events thread for full details.
See you there!

Go Das go!!!
The Ninjas have been sprucing up skillcapes and polishing Pyramid Plunder in today's two graphical updates.
Chameleon extract is the latest addition at Solomon's Store a marvellous substance that lets you change your character's skin colour.
Finally, we've got some further details of the Questival - a lore-tastic fortnight of community events, starting today.
Read on for more information!
As of today, the iconic capes have a whole new look:
There's an added feature, too, as the hood traditionally bundled with the capes can be attached to the cape, so it shows hanging at the back. You can of course detach the hood, if you'd prefer to wear it as usual.
The Ninjas have also turned their attention to Pyramid Plunder, giving the minigame an updated environment, complete with moody, atmospheric lighting. A fresh embalming's done the guardian mummy the world of good, too:
There's updated music from the Audio Team as well, so listen out while you're loading up on artefacts.
Solomon's Store Chameleon Extract
Time for a bold new look? A few dabs of chameleon extract might be just the ticket available today at Solomon's Store!
Each pot of extract gives you one skin colour change, which lasts until you visit the Makeover Mage to undo it. There are a range of hues to choose from, too 23 in total, from striking red to subtle violet.
If you're excited about the 200th Quest, Dimension of Disaster - coming later this month - we've got just the thing for you. Two weeks of quest-related awesomeness: welcome to Questival!
There'll be exclusive competitions and prizes, events, Q&A sessions, videos, and more kicking off with a cool new title! During the two weeks, you'll be able to pick up 'The Prepared' title if you've completed all the requirements for the 200th Quest, namely:
So get prepared! Find a Shield of Arrav partner, if you need one. This title will only be available for the next two weeks, so hurry!
There's information on what we'll be doing coming tomorrow there'll certainly be something for everybody.
Have fun with today's visual improvements, and tell us what you think over on the forums.
EDIT: Okay! We heard you, the old capes are on their way back with an option to toggle between the updated an retro version. Were working on it now, and it should be available in a couple of weeks!
