Dear Jagex,

We should have the opportunity to make a gravestone/monument or something similar for deceased Runescape players.

I've personally lost one good rs-friend this year, and realised that we don't really have anything in this game to honor her memory. She was one of the leaders in my clan and a dear friend to the people in EoG. We are many people that would like to pay our respects somehow, but are unable to at the moment.

Witnessed friendchats and other RS communities lose players irl, and I am positive that this is something more players want.

-Should this be a part of clan citadels without context?

Gaming is suppose to be fun and entertaining, but having an option to honor a dead player would be nice for those that wish it. Playing with many people across the globe also makes it hard for most to pay their respects.

This could be done as simple as adding text to a statue/monument that exists in citadel already. Does not have to be intended for the deceased only.

I would really like to see some more suggestions to this very basic idea, so feel free to elaborate!

IMO this wouldn't be appropriate to be added to the game tbh. The game is meant to be entertainment, not a place to reminisce people who have died in real life; graveyards in real life are intended for the latter.

Good luck paying respects to someone you've played, got to know and hang out with on the other side of the world. Try to think outside the box Blackbird. How could something like this be added to the game, without it even being about such a sad thing. Like, having the option to customize the text on a monument in citadel that has nothing to do with this theme... or something like that.

Just throwing out the idea. Your feedback is appreciated.

I think maybe if jagex could add some new items to Construction and text could be added to that item might work, maybe being able to add a rose to the garden and add text? as an example.

Or a beer that when drank you could edit the text, so when you drink it your player would say what you've written.

This doesn't have to be a sad update, really this is a celebration of life and memory.
