Yes, the event has been released - and more's coming next week.
You can head over to the Lumbridge Crater, and help Santa build his Giant Cracker by delivering presents to some of RuneScapes famous NPC's.
If that doesn't tickle your fancy, you can help to defeat Snowverload, who spawns every three hours. You have to work with the community to lure him to the Lumbridge crater, where he'll be banished by Santa. At the same time, tinsel snakes will spawn in Varrock. Take them to the Christmas tree in Varrock for Summoning experience, and if you hand in 10 at once, you'll receive the Christmas pet from 2011.
Next week sees the release of a small Mini-quest and subsequent Snowboarding.
There's also the usual seasonal events on the Treasure Hunter minigame, offering untradeable rewards. Speak to the head Elf in Burthorpe for more info.
Thanks. Been meaning to do it for a while, so it's finally out of the way (such a financial drain too). Always used to use trains or simply walk myself, though the trains are pretty slow in my corner of the UK, so you'd be better off walking anyway. As you say, it's peaceful.
Hmm, four months or so I think? Not too long really. At £24 an hour for me then, I can't really complain . But when you have to pay over £60 for the test itself, and £48 for the theory test, it soon mounts up. I completed the theory part in August, then started learning in September - I just wanted to get on with it really.
I should just use my laptop for the forums in future.
I did like a weeks intensive learning, then 2 - 4 hours a week to get more experience - so a fair amount of time. I learn better when I do things regular and often. And more experience with an instructor is never a bad thing. Most of my 'friends' drive stupidly.

Noswordsaid: i couldnt find anything about people dying from a cassette tape
or do you just mean for listening to? at least the argument for vinyls makes sense, better sound quality and all. except i cant fit a record player and 500 records in my pocket. but cassettes are both worse quality and inconvenient
I always find it odd that people celebrate a national day which isn't exactly theirs. I mean, I'll probably be on the island of Ireland for Paddy's, but I shan't celebrate it - could use it as an excuse to celebrate my national day, which occurs at a similar time though.
Each morning I wake up I die a little, can barely stand on my feet, Take a look in the cupboard and find, A bottle of HP sauce, I have spent all my time cooking, But I just can't get no relief. Tomato. Oooohhh Mushroom. Can anybody find me, tomatoes to grill?
I see a silhouette of a Charles, Eugenie, Eugenie will you do the LiamFoxtrot? Merkel and Marcon very very frightening me! Arlene Foster, Gerry Adams, Moggy Woggy, Johnsony, CommonsBarCigarooooo Corbyno-oh-oh-oh I'm just a rich Queen everybody loves me! She's just a rich Queen, From a rich family, Spare her some life from this monstrosity, Easy rule, Easy life, will you let her rule? Charles! No! Do not let her go! (let me go!) Gibraltar! Do not let go! (do not let go!) Stormont! We will not do a deal (do a deal) We will not do a deal! Do a deal! Will not do a deal (never never never never) Do a deallllllllllllllll, May May May May May May May! Oh mummy mummy, Mummy please let me rule, Camila has the crown put aside for me, for me, For meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
My 6th skill pet but they're something I don't use much. Yeah, only the base exp counts... unless it's broken, wouldn't be a first . But I suppose everyone has been saving their charms up, so it figures. RS3 is basically petscape now, every update there's a pet - not that I don't mind, but I do feel it's a tad overkill. Where's the Penguin Pet eh Twillow?
As for goals for the weekend, meh. I would go and Slay, but I bet every world is packed. So I simply used up my charms, then started cooking again - I can semi afk that.
I don't think there's really a definitive answer for that. Some people have trained well past 200m experience to get the pet, others get them for simple actions like burying bones. It's one of those things that increases with level/at 99/120/200m, and works off the base exp - but other then that it's RNG really.
I get them for the oddest of things, harvesting my Crystal Tree unlocked the Farming Pet, and Mining my daily Red Sandstone unlocked the Mining pet. The only one I really got from long term training was the Firemaking pet - maybe the Cooking one too.
My stomach has been going up and down like tower bridge recently, so dinner will be something simple, when I feel like it.
You just walked up to the shop, Bad boy, not gonna lie, Held up your Scimmy, Stole the geepee, ooooh, The alarm goin' off in the corner shop oh, Bringing the cops down on yuh, Go on, take the money and run!
Like a greyhound! Run! It's double exp at home! Run! just hop on the bus, Gus; don't need to discuss much!
I remember when this thread was young Me and Twillow had so much fun Hosting threads and spamming counts Had an old gold badge and a Player Owned House But the biggest kick I ever got Was shoving a Twill' into the Crocodile Elid
Yay, I'm glad you liked it. But on the subject of that, you inspired this:
I post here when I want to, My post count climbs, Once Rune, now Opal, It climbs and climbs,
Inspiration comes to me, Gives me every song I need,
Give me a lifetime of crowns, And some caviar, Sing the language of songs, Like you know the parody,
Mmm, my songs they live on, Across the forum threads now, ‘Scapers
I’m simply the ‘Wav, Better than all the Waves, Better than any peng, Any peng I’ve ever spied, A fish stuck on my throat, I cast my line in every world, To end my songs, Twillow, I’d rather be reset.
On your threads I see the green, And your little purple face, Hunting the lost pengs, That are miles away,
Just with her notebook and her bear, She could be in no better place,
I’m simply the ‘Wav, Better than all the Waves, Excluding the Fruity ones, And the little Froudy one, Sat in a posh house now, Cheese, Caviar and Port oh yeah, Oh, writing some songs, no, no, no, Really, I’m alone in my life.
Each time I sing it’s like I’m losing control, Singing me songs like a Fred with a sub, Bet Brian May doesn’t feel like this at all, Roger and John now - don’t let go,
I’m the best! No cake from Twillow, Submarines lurking here, Sneaked in from the general chat, Oh, I’m stuck for ideas, So, post your requests up here, Then I’ll write a song, ye ye ye, About the fish and the rain, (Repeat x2)
Cherry requested that I broaden my songwriting capabilities. On the last page I decided to do a Tina Turner parody, and I'm sticking with the 'across the pond' vibe here:
Livin' on a Pet
Once upon a time… not so long ago… Nosword used to work on Runecraft, Pets have been on strike, He’s down on his luck it’s tough, so tough, Nosword works his skills all day, Working for the pet, He brings home his XP for bores, for bores,
He says, you gotta skill now, to get that pet It doesn’t make a difference if you hate it or not, You got the forums, and that’s enough for cheer, So, give it a go,
Woah, Rune-craft-ing now, Woah-oh, Livin’ on a Pet, Take my ess, and you’ll make it I swear, Woah-oh, Livin’ on a Pet, Yeah.
Noswords playing Old-school right now, Now he’s holding on, with no sword or no pet, It’s tough, so tough, Nosword dreams of getting the pet, When you get twenty-five k in the hour, Swordy whispers; Wav, I’m so dry! Someday… You’ve got to hold on, to tally and ess, It doesn’t make a difference which alter you use, You’ve got your runes now, and that’s enough for Mage, So, give it a blast!
Woah, Rune-craft-ing now, Woah-oh, Livin’ on a Pet, Take my ess, and you’ll make it I swear, Woah-oh, Livin’ on a Pet, Yeah
O you’ve got to craft now, runeys or not, You live for the pet but a thousand you’re dry!
Woah, Rune-craft-ing now, Woah-oh, Livin’ on a Pet, Take my ess, and you’ll make it I swear, Woah-oh, Livin’ on a Pet, (Repeat x2)
I was at 134m Firemaking exp when I got the pet. Granted, the pets came out after I had already achieved the virtual 120 (104m xp), but still, so much for the 'extra' drop chance you get with 99, and a virtual 120.
Do you know what's worth posting for? When it's not worth counting for? Do the penguins waddle away? Across the ice to their submarine? Does the green weigh out the purple? And you look for a peng to hide? Did someone sing a ‘Wavy song? You're in resets
One, twenty-one posts, Reset your threads, Give up the fight! One, twenty-one posts! Throw away your cakes, across the ice, You and I
When you’re whispering around Ardougne Zoo, And you’ve lost that penguin crate, And your resets have taken their toll, When your cakes crumble up upon your lap. Your friends walk on broken ice, Save that one in the land of the spice, Our counts will never last, You're in resets
World, seventy-one, Hunt escaped pengs, Post on the threads, Five, hundred and four, Build up their hopes – reset the counts, You and I
Do you try and count on your own? When you caught all those fish alone? Did you stand too close to the sea? Like a spy looking for a penguin in a stone!
When it's time to reset the count, And you just give us another try, Something inside this ‘Wav has cried, I’m in ruins…
One, twenty-one posts, Reset your threads, Give up the fight! Four, twenty-four posts! Throw away your cakes, across the ice,
World, seventy-one, Hunt escaped pengs, Post on the threads. Five, hundred and four, Build up their hopes – reset counts, Twill and ow.
Twillowsaid: wow everyone is so hug-gy on that kiss,marry, avoid thread i mean being positive and friendly is a good thing i know but have i ever mentioned that irl i don't really like random people hugging me lol
It's okay, I'll just drop a book on your other big toe and turn that purple too.
Larry Guy, He's been livin' in an Ardy world, I bet he's never had a Penguin thread, I bet her Chuck'll replace him now,
I'm gonna try for a Ghostly Spy, It's been livin' in a disguised world, Seen by anyone with a Ring of Vis' And now I'm lookin' at a Submarine, That's not a peng,
And when she knows how To count from her thre-eh-eads, And when she spys them And Bakes up her ca-ah-ake.
She'll see I'm not Freddie, Just because I'm posting in Forum Games, You know I've seen her in her Ardy Zoo, She's getting tired of her Purple Hair, And all the countin' from her Forum friends, She's got a choice!
