The Halloween Event is coming soon! This October 31st the rare Halloween Masks will be dropped randomly all across the world of Rune1. They will drop at random locations periodically on October 31st 2018. This is a once in a life-time opportunity and the masks will never be dropped ever again. The event will last 72 hours - in order to give people who can only play on weekends a fair shot.

Rune1 Client v1.0.8 is here! It contains several new features and bug fixes.
•Fall Theme - Leaves have dried out and turned orange all across the world of Rune1 for the months of October and November only. Get into the fall spirit and experience the game in a fresh new way like you've never seen it before. It can be toggled on/off in Main Menu -> More Options -> Theme.

•Screenshot Function - You can now easily take a screenshot and automatically save it by using the Main Menu -> Screenshot function. Your screenshots are saved to .../Rune1 client folder/Screenshots/.

Community update:Mod Zenix, Founder of the Rune1 Name/Logo, Artist, Webmaster and Owner of, Lead Client Developer, and Developer of the original server source Rune1 is based on severed ties with the previous Administrator "Mod Devenir" due to repeated conflicts of interest and fundamentally different visions for the future of Rune1 that couldnt be reconciled. The security of the your accounts and personal info could not be guaranteed when more than 1 person had access to the source code and database and the security of your computers couldnt be ensured when more than 1 person had administrative access to the client code and website. The integrity of the original game could not be ensured when the second developer planned to make radical changes. Therefore I have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interests of the community that I assume sole ownership over the Rune1 Game associated with my website, and part ways with Mod Devenir who will now possibly be going on to develop his own separate 2004-themed server under a different name utilizing the old Rune1 source code.(edited) Rune1 will now aim to be a 100% complete accurate RS 2004 remake, finished within the next year, with little or zero custom content ever added. Having Mod Zenix as the sole owner and programmer of Rune1, development will now continue at an accelerated pace. "Mod Devenir"'s own server will be a highly customized/modified version of the game based on an older version of Rune1 source code and account files. Code for quests/content and critical patches will be provided to and exchanged with ex-Administrator/programmer Mod Devenir. [info about server name/details to be available later]
