As part of RuneScape’s programme of 20th anniversary-themed content, the first instalment of ‘Once Upon A Time’, the living game’s multi-part anniversary storyline, launches in-game today.

Titled ‘Foreshadowing’, it begins a celebratory adventure that will run across the entire year and sees players journeying through the living game’s past, present and future as the story unravels.

In Once Upon A Time: Foreshadowing, players will meet both allies and antagonists who will establish the story’s themes and plot. Players will encounter Relomia, emissary of the now deceased Sliske, as she attempts to find her place in a world without her idol and long-time players will recognise a few familiar faces as her adventure unfolds.

Completing Foreshadowing rewards players with a new kind of hat called ‘Relomia’s Party Hat’, paying tribute to the beloved and much sought-after party hat.
