The countdown

See the Future was an event where the Runespan was featured in an ingame teaser. On 20 April 2012, a thread under the name of See the Future has been added by Mod Timbo, on Future Updates forum.

This thread presented a red fence with the words See The Future painted white on it; below it shows a countdown, which aimed to 20:00 UTC, 28 April 2012. It named three locations: the Grand Exchange, Ardougne and Catherby.

When the counter hit zero, rifts opened in the locations, which wizards attempted to control, before fading away. This was the reason the event was dubbed "See the Future", as it provided a teaser of the Runespan before its release.

Pre-event messagesEdit

When the countdown hit certain numbers, a message was given to every player on their chatbox:

  • 24 hours- Wizards have detected a strange disturbance in the fabric of RuneScape. 24 hours until event.
  • 12 hours- Wizards have detected a strange disturbance in the fabric of RuneScape. 12 hours until event.
  • 7 hours- Wizards have discovered a small tear in the fabric of RuneScape. 6 hours until event.
  • 5 hours- Wizards have discovered an expanding tear in the fabric of RuneScape. 5 hours until event.
  • 4 hours- Wizards have reported a rift in the fabric of RuneScape emerging. 4 hours until event.
  • 3 hours- Wizards have reported a rift from a strange plane emerging in the fabric of RuneScape. 3 hours until event.

Wizards then teleported to Ardougne, Catherby, and the Grand Exchange, trying to control the opening of a rift, which released various Esslings and then turned into a runesphere.
