There’s only a few days left until Thanksgiving and the RuneScape Community team have a whole host of great events, competitions and celebrations to get involved with!

Turkey Takeover

The turkeys of RuneScape have been in hiding since last November, secretly plotting ways to secure protection in Gielinor and save themselves from an inevitable, roasted death. A year on, their planning has come to fruition, and they're setting out on a journey to win the war against turkey-slayers, mustering support via diplomatic measures. With regular batches of turkeys appearing in Varrock over the holiday season, you won’t want to miss out on this Thanksgiving extravaganza! Find out more about the Turkey Takeover and get involved here.

Guess How Many (Dead) Turkeys!

In addition to the Turkey Takeover, we’re also giving away an Thanksgiving-tastic Turkey Hat cosmetic! To be in with the chance of winning all you need to do is send your estimate of how many turkeys will be slaughtered during the attack on Gielinor this Thanksgiving via email to [email protected] Good luck!

In-Game Title: 'the Stuffed'

As voted for by players on the forum, we’ll be adding in a special community created Thanksgiving title - ‘the Stuffed’ - for everybody to display from 22nd November onwards!

Fansite Turkey Scavenger Hunt

A selection of our Jagex-supported fansites are also getting into the Thanksgiving spirit this year with a special turkey-themed scavenger hunt. Find all ten turkeys hidden across the various official RuneScape channels and fansites and you could be in with the chance of winning some great prizes. You can find out more about the hunt here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

Not trying to be pessimistic but this sounds really boring and reused.

That's what I was thinking when I read through this and right after the EoC comes out. I thought Jagex would be aware that many people will likely come back and give the EoC a try and show off a huge holiday event rather than a mundane recycled event from last year.

All of the holiday events are boring and re-used. It's no secret.

Hmm....Aside from the fansite bit this is pretty much last years thanksgiving event. I'm having another deja vu experience from this years H'ween event! :-( I hope they don't continue to start re-using every holiday event from this point on. Older holiday events may have had some similarities, but events recently have been the same things with some different statues and different NPC's.

I'd be more willing to do them if they were something new and exciting rather than something reused and not. If they kept to Christmas/Easter/Halloween like before then maybe more effort would be put into these events instead of having an event for every holiday out there.

Found all the turkeys on the fansites. Some were a pain in the butt.

Holiday events seem to be going downhill lately.
