Welcome, pesky human, to The Pit! The name’s Scrambles the Werewolf, and I’d like to commend you on your exceptional taste in distractions and diversions.

What’s that? You don’t remember how you got here? Well, you showed a general nimbleness at one of RuneScape’s many agility courses. Snotgut, my sidekick, has written a list of the agility courses and dropped it in a summary box at the bottom of this newspost for you. Go have a look once we’ve finished talking. You see, by gracefully completing several agility laps, you were lucky enough to catch the Talent Scout’s eye and he called you over with his big blue fist. After a chat, he whisked you to The Pit to see ol’ Scrambles and Snotgut, so that you could test your luck on one of our six knee-knocking ‘surprises’:

  
  • Floor is Lava
        
  • High-Low There
        
  • Karaoke
        
  • Put the Thing in the Other Thing
        
  • Punch the Hungry Sheeps
        
  • Crate Expectations

That’s them right there. Proud of those titles, we are. We’ll pick which game you play – at random, of course, as there are no favourites here. Fail at the task and we’ll hand you some of that XP you adventurers seem to like nowadays. Won’t be much, mind: roughly the same you’d have got from the agility course you just left. Knock our hairy socks off with your agility skills, though - beating the diabolical tasks we set you - and you’ll be taken backstage for a bumper batch of XP, a chance to gamble it all, and a gorilla mask. Why a gorilla mask, I hear you ask? Because we think you’ll look...uh...dashing in it. Ha!

Once we’re finished, you’ll be dropped back where you started, where you may/may not have a memory of what happened at the dreaded, befuddling, fantastical Pit! Mwahahahaha!

Spoiler

Cause OP makes news ugly.

Looks fun, glad I get a sneak peak with m'agility cape, cause I can't be bothered working for something I reap little benefit from.

This might make agility more tolerable. Ofcourse it comes out after people just needed to train to 77 for ritual of the mahjarret. Would've been nicely timed if it was before that.

Have you tried Pyramid Plunder? I heard it's a bit more bearable.

Does the gambling thing mean you actually lose xp? Because someone with 100m agility xp getting halved would quit Runescape :L

It's ~70+ Agility though, due to advanced. Can't say I'll be going here soon :(
Ahh, well. How's it like, 99 Agility'ers?

No, you gamble the experience you get from the event.

I assume the topic got moved by someone when they found it in RS Discussions or somewhere similar. That does happen from time to time. :(
