The deserted pub in East Ardougne needed your suggestions to bring it to life. Several weeks ago, many of you submitted your ideas for a name for the pub, the NPCs who will populate it, and the food and drink the pub will serve. The best ideas were whittled down and organised into five themes. Then, two weeks ago, we launched the Guaranteed Content: Name a Pub poll. More than 70,000 of you voted for the ideas you wanted us to add to the game, and we were very pleased with the response from the RuneScape community.
The poll is now closed, and we can announce that the winning option is ‘The Poison Arrow’. Further details can be found below:
Marion the barmaid used to lead a group of merry bandits, but now she is content to stand behind the bar and polish her numerous archery trophies, in between serving drinks to thirsty travellers.
Geoff sits by the dartboard fletching arrows, which he tests by flinging them at the board. He once tried to join the Ranging Guild, but failed his entry test after accidentally shooting a squirrel out of a tree, injuring it.
Sparky the squirrel's injured leg hasn’t been the same since, but Geoff promised to look after him, and gave him one of his arrows to use as a crutch.
Suggested beverage: Ranger's ade – golden in colour and flavoured with local honey for a sweeter taste, it really hits the target.
Suggested snack: Skewered kebab – grilled meat and vegetables skewered on an arrow.
Expect to see The Poison Arrow winging its way into the game during the next few months!
We really enjoyed getting you involved with the game, so we will be running another Guaranteed-Content Poll two weeks from now. The aim of the poll will be to name a new Slayer creature, so the first thing we need to do is get your ideas. Head to the “Suggestions – Monster and NPC” forum to find out more. The “Name a Slayer Creature” thread (Quick find code 79-80-957-58851629) contains more information about the creature, and even some concept art to inspire you. We hope to see lots of imaginative ideas soon!
