It’s Game Jam this week, so keep an eye on socials to see what the J-Mods are up to!
September Game Jam
If it's made with citrus fruits it's a marmalade...
Our regular Game James give our J-Mods the chance to spend a week exploring personal projects, community suggestions, and other exciting ideas. Keep an eye out on social media this week to catch a glimpse of some of the projects that are in the works!
Like previous projects we aim to give you all an update on how things went next week!
Please note that everything shown is subject to internal reviews, scheduling and testing processes. While these projects may appear complete in places, all Game Jam projects take a significant amount of additional work to implement - not all Game Jam projects shown may make it into the game, and we can't offer a timeline or guarantees of Game Jam content releases.

Fixes and improvements in this week's game update
- Cleaned up & reorganized a number of damage buffs to work in a more consistent manner.
- Note: This will have changed the order of operations for a number of buffs, and will likely act as a slight buff for magic/ranged/melee, as the majority of buffs have been grouped after potion stat boosts (apologies as your PVM calculators will need retuning)!
- Reworked a number of damage buffs that previously only affected 'random damage' to affect all damage.
- Previously effects like the Slayer Helmet claimed to boost damage by 12.5%, but due to how this was applied, they actually boosted damage anywhere from 1% up to 12%, These effects have been reworked and rebalanced to consistently buff damage by a fixed amount:
- Slayer helm (Rebalanced from 12.5% random damage to 7.5% total at the lowest tier, 9.5% at the highest tier).
- Genocidal (Rebalanced from 7% random damage to 5% total damage when fully stacked).
- Fort Forinthry guardhouse buff(values remain the same, changed from random to total damage).
- Revenge (Rebalanced from 10% random damage per stack to 5% random damage per stack).
- Spendthrift (values remain the same, random damage changed to total damage).
- The examine texts of Protean Planks and Protean Logs have been updated to better reflect how they work.
- The Required Items description for the Unwelcome Guests quest has been corrected.
- Fixed an issue in the first dream of Dead and Buried where a player could not progress because of quickly moving between adjacent pressure pads.
- All fletched items that are nonspecific to quests or promos now have Fletching XP buffs applied.
- The execute chance that was part of the Tier 3 Guardhouse perk was affecting the Hobgoblin Geomancer and Unholy Cursebearer bosses. This has been corrected.
- Additional options to disable Hero Pass messages are now available in the settings.
- Removed the on-login popup for the Hero Pass.
- Skill guide entries for Necromancy prayers were updated - Hand of Judgement and Decay prayers no longer say they require level 10 in Necromancy.

- Necromancy Runes and Ectoplasm can now be taken into Castle Wars.
- Fixed an issue where occasionally Glyphs may not be recognised for the active ritual.
- Sitting on benches anywhere now triggers rest.
- Sitting on stools in the City of Um now triggers rest too. Ahh!
- A new Necromancy gameplay settings option has been added, which ensures the highest tier communion item is automatically placed on the pedestal from focus storage, rather than continuing to use the already-selected item.

- The 'Limber Lumber Jumper' Elite Fremennik achievement no longer requires Defence and Constitution.
- The elements on the ribbon bar now correctly expand and collapse when hovering over them with the mouse cursor.
- Empty large Rune pouches and grasping Rune pouches can no longer be equipped via the Bank.
- Fixed an issue with the Agoroth boss fight - in some cases the player could be killed by a tentacle attack in phase 1 after defeating all the tentacles - and in phase 2 after defeating the main boss. This has been corrected.
- Fixed an issue where Agoroth tentacle attack rate was not being set correctly in the boss's second phase. Tentacles now attack more frequently during phase 2.
- The Arch-Glacor Collection Log will now correctly check if it's complete when crafting any of the weapons.
- You can now take the shorter path between River Lum and the wheat farm.
- Removed an unecessary forcewalk tile in the Slayer Tower.
- Converted the magic carpet ride in the Jack of Spades quest to use the activity override system of the Stormguard wing suit and Um gondolas, to standardise safety checks.

- An appropriate message is now displayed in the chat when using the Agility shortcut connecting the Tree Gnome Stronghold and the Barbarian Outpost.
- Dismantling a Cramulet without having the required Inventory space no longer gives a placeholder message.
- Volatile Clay Hammers and Fletching Knives can no longer be equipped from the Bank to the character's hand.
- The Re-Roll Token (Master)'s destroy message has been updated - it was previously saying it could be bought from Zaida, which it can't!
- Fixed a typo in the broadcast message you get when receiving a Magma Tempest Ability Codex from TzKal-Zuk.
