Essentially, yeah, it's just another dailyscape event. Jagex knows that if it allowed people to play voluntarily when they want, without feeling pressured by missing out on temporarily available rewards/bonuses, the player counter would drop even lower than it already is.

If only we could freely choose when and what content to play, without manipulation like that, by keeping temporary events to a minimum and making them quality over quantity. :P

Sounds like there's a lore reason though, which I'm curious about.

Sure, but just how meaningful is the lore aspect here, really? Sometimes lore is quickly made up just for convenience's sake, which seems to be the case here IMO, given how the emphasis is greatly on the bonuses in that news post and how Jagex has come up with so many various bonus weekends before.
