Getting Started

This event is available to freeplayers and members, and has no requirements! It is a safe event as there's no chance of losing items. To start, head south of Falador near the elemental wizards. If you are of a lower level watch out for the Highwaymen, as they are prone to attack anyone who comes into their territory.

Leave your furry friends at home, Death's more of a dog person.

As you approach the portal nearly all light from the world is sucked away. Click on the portal to get started. It is represented as a present icon on your mini-map. If you log out during this event you will appear here, outside Grim's house.

The dark portal

You will appear inside Grim's mansion. Head east and talk to the Grim Reaper. If you happen to log out, talk to Grim again to find out what stage you were up to.

Note: You will have to regain any items that you had in your inventory if you log out.

The grim reaper!

Grim asks you to prepare his house for his next servant. You will then be presented with two options. If you select 'That doesn't really appeal, I'm off.' the Grim will kill you and you will return outside his house.

Note: As this is a safe event you will lose no items. If you select this option you can still complete the event by talking to Grim again.

Grim Reaper

Select 'I'll help out, no problem.' to continue with the event.

The Garden of Deathly Shadows

Pass doorway

Right-click on the doorway just north of Grim and select 'Pass Doorway.' Randomly, or if you try to pass through a door that you haven't been instructed to, the Gargoyles might attack you sending you back to the start.

Just inside the doorway you will see Muncher, Grim's dog.

Muncher the dog... skeleton

There is an option to interact with Muncher, but beware, choosing the wrong option might land you back at the start.

Fighting muncher

Continue north until you reach another doorway, and select pass.

Grim Reaper

The Grim will present you with your next task.

You are to make your way through the spider webs.

The path is random - it's different for everyone. If you reach the skull and log out, you will need to make your way through the webs again.

Pick-up skull

Right click on the skull and pick it up.

Make your way back through the webs. As you are going through the doorway the Gargoyles will take the skull off of you.

Grim Reaper

Lounge of the Reaper of Souls

Go to the Grim's lounge, he'll tell you what to do once you get through the doorway.

After reading the diary, which can be found on the table, it seems Muncher has wreaked havoc around the house. You're to search the room for Grim's items, in total there are 7 items to collect.
