There is a difference between the plane of Gielinor and Gielinor the planet. There are different planes of existence, with potentially wildly different physical laws. But what we know as worlds are generally planets that inhabit those planes. In some cases one plane might have more than one planet. So Teragard is a planet that inhabits a plane of its own, while Kethis and Abbinah are on the same plane (or otherwise visible to each other trough the abyss) and so on.

Planes are the canvases upon which the worlds are painted.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?

The planes are not just names for different areas/sectors of the same physical space. They are, as the name would apply, different planes of existence, as the planar gallery and this tweet makes clear.

For a time it seemed like Jagex were moving away from their planar model to a more planetary one, but it's clear they've adopted it once again (see Guthixian memorial - Elder Sword echo). In the recent Runefest forum thread Mod Stu even posited that different planes can have different physical laws.


The abyss is not just outer space either, if anything it'd be analogous to warp/hyperspace.

Hmm well i actually made that picture specifically to move away from the whole "everythings another dimension" thing and to make a genuine universe. Infact if you look at the full picture you'll see that all the worlds are infact made to be planets. Plus with how they've started referring to worlds as planets/moons now (such as how he did on stream) i think its still safe to say they've moved to the planet model for the worlds atleast. Even if you say that each solar system is in its own bubble of "a plane" it still doesnt make too much difference, they still seem to be moving to calling worlds planets now. If there is some kind of layer then maybe its just a membrane of magic to make each solar system slightly more hospitable than the really deep space inbetween. I mean if you think about it, our solar system is basically in its own little finite bubble of a gravitational field holding our planets together


I'm not saying worlds are entire dimensions unto themselves, they're definitely planets, I'm saying the planes they inhabit are. It's a useful distinction to make since a lot of lore is built around it.
