RuneScape is marking Pride Month with a new mini-event, Tales of Pride. Meanwhile, Old School RuneScape is planning some changes to the recently launched minigame, the Giant’s Foundry and preparing for the iOS mobile launch.
Tales of Pride features seven stories, each written by members of the RuneScape team who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community, and expands on the lore and backstories of some of Gielinor’s LGBTQIA+ characters. The event runs through June 30th, and the stories will be told in various forms. Some are lorebooks, journals, or conversations, so you’ll have to pay attention to know you’ve encountered one of them. Start by speaking to the Curator in Burthorpe to get the Magic Book, and try to collect all seven stories.
If you do, you’ll get the 2022 Pride banner and a rainbow variant of the Gators you get from Het’s Oasis. The Magic Book will remain for you to have in your house. There are also other community events assisted by Jagex, including the 2022 LBGT Corner Clan’s Pride Parade on June 24th.
A year ago, RuneScape launched on mobile, and there’s a small gift for players, including a formerly mobile membership exclusive outfit, XP boost item, and Treasure Hunter keys. And speaking of mobile, Old School RuneScape is preparing the launch of its new mobile clients. Starting tomorrow, June 15th, those in the iOS beta will have to switch over to the vanilla client via the App Store.
The Old School RuneScape team is also planning to make a few changes to its latest mini game, the Giant’s Foundry. Some changes will include shortening animations, a streamlined mould list, and some additional tweaks based on community feedback.You can preview some of those with the weekly Q&A and transcript.
