RuneScape Launches The Once Upon A Time: Flashback Quest

Jagex has launched a new event in RuneScape as players can now experience the Once Upon A Time: Flashback quest. If you're well-versed in the history of the game, then this will give you a few throwback feelings of nostalgia as they are taking you back to campaigns long gone. As you might suspect, you're headed off to save the future of Gielinor, as the storyline's antagonist Relomia is rewriting old quests and altering Gielinor's history so that all of the main characters you've come to know are dying. It's up to you to put a stop to it. We have more info on that for you below as well as the news of a new illustrated history that will be published later in the Fall by Dark Horse Books.

In Flashback, storyline's antagonist Relomia is rewriting old quests and altering Gielinor's history so that main characters are dying. Players ally with the mysterious ghost Closure who's working alongside Death to journey to three classic RuneScape quests to fix the storylines and bring the characters back to life. Successful completion of Flashback will reward players with a Medium XP lamp and Closure's Book. Flashback is the continuation of the Once Upon A Time series of miniquests, which will unfold throughout RuneScape's 20th anniversary year, delivering adventures through the past, present, and future of the fabled living game.

Also as part of the game's 20th anniversary, Jagex recently announced that RuneScape: The First 20 Years – An Illustrated History will be published in autumn 2021 by Dark Horse Books. It will serve as the official companion time for the game, giving players a never-before-seen look at the iconic online fantasy RPG as it celebrates its 20th anniversary. A deluxe edition is also available exclusively on the RuneScape Merch Store for diehard fans that want something extra.
