What exactly is idle gaming, and how will it all tie back into RuneScape? I sat down and spoke with members of the Jagex and Hyper Hippo development teams to answer those questions. Fans travelled from as far afield as the US and Australia to spend the day at the Tobacco Dock in London to see the unveiling of Chronicle: Runescape Legends and attend presentations on the future of the game, Q&A sessions with the games devs, cosplay competition and a host of other attractions.
The event was also watched online via two official Twitch streams which reached a peak of 16,000 concurrent viewers. The event’s Twitter hashtag was used over 2000 times reaching over 1.7 million people. Runefest 2014 Runescape’s most successful fanfest yet.

So, naturally, they’ve gone and made something completely different.
Okay, not “completely” different. Chronicle still has collectible cards – this is a CCG, after all – and you get them by playing games against AI or real people in practice or ranked challenge matches. You can still buy and open packs of cards – again, CCG – and you can break down extra cards that you don’t need in order to generate resources to create ones you do.
