Rune Mysteries (free to play)
Ariane’s had premonitions ever since she was a child, but lately her visions have shown her just one thing: the Wizards’ Tower – her former home and place of study – in flames. Sure enough, there are already magical creatures manifesting and attacking the wizards, and Ariane’s convinced that Archmage Sedridor’s plan to purge the tower will trigger the disaster she foresees. Ariane’s banned from entering the Wizards’ Tower, so she needs your help to open the archmage’s eyes to the truth.
You’ll delve deep into the ruins of the very first Wizards’ Tower,

which was once home to four distinct orders: the serene Blue Wizards; the wise Green Wizards; the free-thinking Red Wizards and the analytical Grey Wizards. You’ll need to solve the puzzle of how to enter, and decide what sort of mage you are to unlock the old tower’s secrets and save the new one from its fiery fate.
Rewards include a magical staff that’s handy for low-level mages, as well as a unique wizard’s hat and title, both of which reflect the magical order you aligned yourself with in the old tower (you’ll have the opportunity to change this, if you wish).
Rune Memories (members only)
At the end of Rune Mysteries, Ariane found herself in a bit of a bind, and now she needs your help once more. You’ll fully explore the arcane ruins beneath the Wizards’ Tower and experience – through the memories of its former inhabitants – the clashes of magical ideals that led to the old tower’s downfall. Dig deep enough and put together the pieces of this ancient puzzle, and you’ll have all you need to free Ariane and avert the disaster once and for all.
Rewards for this members-only quest include a full set of magical robes to accompany the last quest’s hat, as well as access to Archmage Sedridor’s personal rune essence chest, which will grant you rune essence every time you level up in Runecrafting. This is applied retroactively if you’ve already levelled the skill, and by 99 you’ll have received a mighty 24,750 essence in total! Those of you with very high Magic, Prayer and Runecrafting will find further, hidden rewards – ask around the tower once the quest’s complete.
