Turkey book detail

The Turkey book is a book that players could obtain as part of the 2008 Thanksgiving event and 2014 Thanksgiving event. It gives clues on where to find disguised turkeys around Gielinor, which players could find and spy on. Spying on all ten during the 2008 event unlocked the Give Thanks emote.

Players could obtain the book from the Cook's brother in Lumbridge Castle.

The book itself gives no instructions, and players must rely on dialogue from the cook's brother to know what the locations mean and what they should look for.

  • Players could keep the Turkey book after the Thanksgiving holiday event.
  • The Turkey book is not re-obtainable in any way if a player destroys it. The Cook's brother, despite being the NPC who gave the book to players in 2008, would not replace it during the Thanksgiving 2009 holiday event. Thus, until 2014 it was a discontinued item which couldn't be displayed to other players. In 2014 the book was reintroduced, only to be discontinued after the holiday event again.
  • The Holiday Event gave Free-to-play players a chance to see what the activity from Distractions and Diversions, Penguin Hide and Seek was like, but with Turkeys.
  • Before 2014 the Turkey book was considered to be extremely rare because most players destroyed it after they were done since they had no use for it.
  • The destroy message for Turkey books has been changed at least twice now. Initially: "You will need to speak to the Cook's brother in Lumbridge Castle to get another." then to "You will not be able to get the book back if you destroy it.", back again and now the current revision.
