The Runedate is an increasing decimal number, which shows the elapsed number of days since Jagex released the membership service for RuneScape, 27 February 2002. It is used in several ways both in-game and on the RuneScape website.
The current Runedate is 5809.12. (wrong?)
- Runedate is based on the Stardate system of dates from Star Trek.
- Players have to check the Runedate as a part of the process of looking for the TzHaar-Ga'al-Kot.
