Runescape has gone from a fantasy-themed chatroom

Menaphos can also be an opportunity to bring prospective players to the fold with a more packaged chunk of OSRS gold. Menaphos is about developing a critical mass of stuff for existing, lapsed, and new players to gravitate towards, which might make the choice easier for those who are on the fence about if or when to dive in.

Jagex have stamped a peculiar market onto Runescape's grim fairy tale setting over the span of its 16 years. It is a medieval fantasy kingdom that spans a huge number of cultures and environments, but it also drags in steampunk and modern-day influences. In large part, that's as it is a world that's grown by way of hundreds of small content upgrades, the majority of which were alterations to existing locales.

Jagex rarely get to flex their artistic muscle with a blank space. What we knew of Menaphos was restricted within the low-res rock walls at its boundaries - nothing else existed beyond the trollish gates, which players could walk up to, but not traveling  buy runescape gold. For the very first time, Jagex was operating with some of that empty space, producing articles for the Menaphos update from scratch instead of building it along with a city that already existed.

"We had this literal blank canvas," says Redstall,"the town has to be there but at the moment it's just sand. So we must choose how it was likely to look and that has been a lot of fun throughout the pre-production stage" The appearance and tone that they depended on is unquestionably very Runescape, a blend of ancient Egyptian architecture and lush, cartoonish blobs of color and life much more reminiscent of modern-day Marrakesh.
