1.0 - Introduction

Stealing creation is a unique game in its own self. It is played in a distant dimension different than that of Gliendor and is only accessible through one portal. The portal is located inside of the Gamers' grotto and will take you to a place composed of sacred clay. It is likely that the gods shaped the world and all living beings from this very clay in the earliest times of the universe. A group of mystics have found and stabilised this portal and are in search of brave explorers, seeking for an adventure.

Stealing Creation is a members-only mini game based on teamwork, it may be wise to organise your team to decide what everyone is going to do, to maximise your chances of winning. Note that even though the mini game is classed as safe, you can die. All equipment used is made in the mini game, you will lose these items in death.

Although no requirements are needed to play, it is recommended that the player have decent combat and non-combat skills in order to play effectively. No items are allowed to be brought inside the arena.

2.0 - Gameplay

The Stealing Creation lobby can be found in the northern room of the Gamers' Grotto, just north of Falador. To start, talk to the Head Mystic by the portal. He will offer to take you through a tutorial to give you a better understanding of the game. If you have any items still with you, you can deposit these in the Deposit box south-east of the portal.

After the tutorial, you will be taken back to RuneScape where you can choose out of two different styles of games, being "Clan match" and "Free-for-all match". In the Clan match you will be able to fight against different clans, and team up with with 2 other clans. The Free-for-all match, as the name suggests, is free for anyone wanting to play the game. You can pick a side by climbing over one of the two stiles.

2.1 - Types of Matches

Free-for-all match

Starting this type of match can be done by jumping into one of the fenced-off waiting areas located west of the portal. While you are waiting, you'll see a small interface indicating how many combat and skill levels each team has, as shown below.

Clan match

Starting this type of match can be done by entering the large waiting area located east of the portal. The first member of a clan to enter this area will be made clan leader and can issue challenges or offer alliances to other clan leaders. As clan leader, all you have to do is right-click another clan leader and choose the option 'Ally' or 'Challenge'. Accepting an offer made can be done by right-clicking that person and choosing the 'Ally' option. A maximum of three clans can be allied on both sides.


2.2 - Gathering and Processing Recources

When you arrive in the Primordial Realm, you will find yourself inside your team's storage room. The objective in this mini game is to collect more sacred clay than your opponent, either in its raw form or processed as an item. Inside the storage room, you'll find a number of tables which are used to store sacred clay and items made of sacred clay. You can take any items your team has produced from these to use in fights, to gather more resources or secure resources. To see what sort of resources are available in your area of the realm, you can talk to your team's Mystic. He will show you a graph which shows how much of each type of clay is available, as shown on the image below.

The game relies on teamwork and there are a number of jobs and activities you can do, ranging from gathering resources to fighting opponents. In order to win, you'll need a healthy balance of fighters and skillers in your team, in order to secure and gather as many resources as possible. All activities will be explained below.

Gathering and Processing Resources

At the start of a game, you will need to gather clay fragments, so that you can construct tools from them to harvest from beter sources. Clay fragments are always class 1 which means that anyone, regardless of their skill levels, is able to pick these up. When you have collected some of this Sacred clay (class 1), you can convert these into tools by using a kiln so that you can collect higher classes for better equipment. Kilns are located all over the area and can be used by clicking on it while you have some clay in your inventory. There are a small number of rules that control how clay can be used at a kiln, which are explained below:

  • Class 1 clay can only be used to make class 1 items, higher classes will make the highest level of equipment you are able to make, as long as the clay is good enough.
  • Each class of equipment has a level requirement to be able to use and make it, gathering clay works in the same way as shown in the table below.

Class Level requirement
1 None
2 Level 20 in the relevant skills
3 Level 40 in the relevant skills
4 Level 60 in the relevant skills
5 Level 80 in the relevant skills

When clicking on the kiln, an interface will appear. To make an item, select the type of equipment you need on the left, select the specific item in the middle and select the type of clay you wish to use on the right, as the image below shows.

Assuming you have the clay and an appropriate skill level to make the item with that clay, the item will be made and appear in your inventory.

There are four different types of tools you can make, each of which can be used on a specific type of clay resource, as listed below:

Tool name Type of clay resource
Pickaxe Mining resource
Hatchet Woodcutting resource
Harpoon Fishing resource
Butterfly net Hunting resource
2.3 - Controlling Resources

Securing resources

Another aspect your team will be judged on, in addition to collecting clay, is the control of resources. To control a resource, you need to build 4 barriers around it, which can be made by using the kiln. You need a certain Construction level to make and place these barriers.

When the barriers are set up around a resource, only players of your team will be able to access it. Your opponent has the ability to break down the walls and you have the ability to repair them if damaged. The higher the class of the barriers, the more damage they can take.

Engaging in combat

Another way to help your team out, and gathering clay and items, is by attacking the players of the opposite team. Every player of the opposite team, regardless of their combat level, can be attacked. Any foe you defeat will drop all of his items (unless he has the Protect Item Prayer active), which you can pick up and return to the tables in your base.

If you die, you will respawn either at your base or the nearest resource your team controls.

The equipment used to fight your opponents can either be made by yourself, using the kiln, or taken from the tables in your storage room if you do not have the skill requirements to make them yourself, but this will reduce your individual score. Food can also be made, every class heals for a certain amount of hit points, as shown in the table below.

Food class Amount of Life Points restored
1 40 Life Points
2 80 Life Points
3 120 Life Points
4 160 Life Points
5 200 Life Points

Pickpocketing

Not a fan of direct combat? You can always pickpocket your opponents! By pickpocketing your opponents, you can gather the resources they collect and make a significant impact on their ability to gather clay.

In order to steal from an opponent, your Thieving level must be no less than 20 levels below his level. To pickpocket, right-click your opponent and select 'Pickpocket'.

Extra features

There are a few more features you can make use of in Stealing Creation, such as Fog Banks, Altars and Familiars.

Fog Banks can be used to hide in to ambush your opponent, as they make you completely invisible (you even disappear from the mini-map).

Altars are spread out over the whole realm and are free for use to everyone unless blocked by barriers. The altars in this realm not only restore your Prayer points, but also your run energy and Summoning points as well.

Familiars can be summoned to be used for storage as well as combat. The amount of items a familiar can store as well as his combat level depends on the type of clay used to produce the pouch, as shown in the table below.

Used clay class Storage capacity Combat level
1 1 Item 25
2 6 Items 37
3 12 Items 58
4 18 Items 93
5 24 Items 139
2.4 - Experience & Points

The table listed below shows the points you can get or lose for every action. Experience is only given for pickpocketing (Thieving). Combat experience is no longer rewarded while in game.


Action Points
Gathering sacred clay 15 per class
Processing sacred clay 15 per class
Depositing sacred clay 15 per class
Depositing clay items 30 per class
Withdrawing items from your base Points lost that you would earn for depositing it.
Combat 5 per life points damage done to enemy.

After the 20 minute period is up, you will exit Stealing Creation and return back to RuneScape. When you return, an interface will pop up showing you your team score, personal score, and who has won. It'll also present you awards from both teams (do note that the awards are through all teams, not just your own); the awards vary from:

Award How to...

3.0 - Rewards

The rewards from Stealing Creation can be paid for by using the points gained from playing games, all statistics are shown below. All of the items can be morphed into the corresponding piece of the other sets; for example, a Sacred clay helmet can be morphed into a Sacred clay coif or hat. However, the items need to be recharged after a certain amount of experience is gained. Refer to the FAQ section on how much XP until armour degrades. You can find the list of the rewards by talking to the Mystic in the north-eastern tent.

Here are the the other items you can get using your reward points:

Picture Name Points
Zybez RuneScape Help's image of Morphic tool Morphic tool 20 points
Zybez RuneScape Help's image of Volatile tool Volatile tool 20 points

The volatile tool, as the name suggests, can be turned into any tool at random. The tool, when activated, will randomly turn into one of the seven tools (hatchet, butterfly net, hammer, harpoon, knife, needle or pickaxe). While using the tools, you will gain twice as much experience as the amount of normal experience. The volatile tool will stay in that shape for a certain number of uses (based on your level in the specific skill the tool requires) before it reverts back to its original state. The tool will revert to its original state ten times before it needs to be recharged.

The Morphic tool works the same way as the Volatile too, except the player gets to choose what it becomes. Like the volatile tool, the morphic tool rewards double the amount of experience when used. The tool will stay in the same shape until the charge is used up. The charge drains as it is used (based on your level in the specific skill the tool requires). However, the morphic tool drains slightly faster than the volatile tool.

You can check the amount of charge left in both tools by right-clicking them and selecting "Count-charges".
