Candlelight, also known as The Pious Pete random event, is a discontinued random event that was originally introduced on 20 February 2006. In it, the player was teleported to a chapel with a strange monk wandering around. The player had to talk to the monk, Pious Pete, and ask him what was wrong. Pious Pete responded that his candles always go out when he lit them, so he needed the player's help to light them. He would then give the player a lighter.
The Event Edit
Once the player had the lighter, Pete told the player to light only the candles that are left standing, not the ones that are burnt down (he'd take care of those). There would be a screen with arrows to the left and the right, and a button in the middle. Once pressed, the player would light the candle (if it was an unlit candle). After all the candles were lit, the player would talk to Pious Pete and be teleported back to where they were with a small reward. This event was likely the rarest, as very few players had ever gotten it. It is unknown when it was discontinued, since Jagex removed it with no announcement.
The random event's former location can be seen using the Orb of Oculus. If you go to the north section of the Blast Furnace minigame and look north, you can see that it is also east of the Gravedigger event. It is also northwest of Eagles' Peak and southeast of Mort Myre Swamp.
There is a cage northeast of the chapel that contains a random familiar each time a player would be near it. This was shown in a glitch that allowed a player to walk out of the cosmic altar and end up here.
One theory could be that the cage keeps familiars that are "returned to the spirit plane" as when jumping down in a pool in Oo'glog to contain the familiar and stop its timer just to send it back to the player when they go out of the pool and start its timer again. This was a very rare random event.
- This event may be a reference to the poem by Robert W. Service, The Ballad of Pious Pete.
- Using the Orb of Oculus you can see this event from the gravedigger event and other areas.
- Even though this event has long been discontinued, the trees near the chapel still received a graphical update.
