RuneScape Distractions and Diversions

If you ever want to do something different, try a Distraction and Diversion! They all occur at different times, but have great rewards!

Whilst exploring the game and venturing through RuneScape, you may encounter frequently changing events around the land. An eccentric circus moves between twelve towns every week, meteorites (or rather Shooting Stars) sporadically fall on RuneScape all day long every day, and routinely ten penguin operatives hide at different locations in the landscape every seven days. Each of these quirky events offers experience and item rewards for all players to enjoy to some degree.
