Shameless plug but I submitted Floor 61 on runnels so support it to get it made faster. Rite of Passage is on their too as is elemental workshop 5 and the death of chivalry sequel. Wake me up when Osborne resigns | Will not be renewing membership until Jagex deals with its toxic developer culture & has a new, better lead designer | *Soon TM” is not a fun joke, it is an admission the company is an embarrassment

Looks like Gertrude's Cat won't end up twisted in Dimensions of Disaster unless Scrum Team 2 ends up with some extra time before QA.


More and more disappointment. :| This quest is going to be a "disaster"...Just wish Jagex hadn't rushed this the way they seem to be doing.


Well, they don't have much of a choice. If they were to delay it, that would affect the release of other quests as well since this is, and will be the 200th quest.

From what we've seen of New Varrock in the 200th quest on that livestream they had recently, I'm really looking forward to the quest now.

Also it was confirmed one of the post-quest rewards from the reward shop will be a comsetic override of the Shield of Arrav. Do want.

(The updated shield of arrav of course, which was also shown in the video)

this was clear from the start, they only put 1 jmod on making the quest. Where as recepie for disaster had a whole team. At that point the quest was already doomed

You do know that's not how it works right? The Guardians team have been hard at work on it, and the team is Mods Osborne, Rowl*y, Stu, and Giara. That's a freaking amazing team of lore and tech skills, and I'm really looking forward to quest 200.



Away from the petty drama revolving around that... a new Dukes Dev Blog is out, revealing the name of Zammy Heist: "Dishonour Among Thieves", a release frame: late February, and that they'll be handling quest 201, to come out in the Spring as well!

As such, this puts our quest schedule to be something around this:

DAT: February
DOD: March/April
201: April/May

Looks like a pretty solid lineup, leading into the summer months which should also contain World Event 3!

Dishonour Among Thieves, eh? Hmm. Am I getting a feeling that one of the thieves is going to betray Zamorak Bin Laden somewhere in the quest or was it this one thief was dishonoring Zamorak in some way in the past. By the way, General Khazard is in this team, not Bilrach (was that a typo or did you do that on purpose?). Now can you drop that name and get on with the present ahead of us?

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to Dimension of Disaster; the preview was amazing. Stu did an amazing job.

That said, and as awesome as DoD will be, RfD still got more resources. DoD has Stu, helped by Srowl*y, Doctor and Osborne, whereas RfD had double the amount of subquests with a different developer on each subquest (one even had three; the intro quest had a different dev and even Mod Mark write some dialogue). Of course, DoD also has a new area to explore and a sort of achievement diary. I'm very satisfied with DoD as it is at the moment (replayable!), but one can't help but notice the difference in allocated resources and developers with RfD...

Perhaps you're half right; perhaps we can't win. But we can fight.

To be fair, it's because the development process today and back then are entirely different.
