* The diary of the current owner of the lighthouse in Fremennik Region. It mentions noises from beneath the lighthouse, hearing the waterlogged voice of the previous owner in his dreams, and then he goes to investigate the basement, which is the source of the sounds. There's a reason why the journal ends there. Sweet dreams, dear reader.

** Tolna was trapped underground, [[GoMadFromTheIsolation isolated and going insane]], for twenty years. Until he morphed into that ... [[HumanoidAbomination thing]], and transformed the entire cave system into a warped manifestation of his madness. ''He was a child.''

* The faces of Mother Mallum and Lord Drakan the Vampyre. Apparently, they're [[NightmareFace too hideous for portrait boxes]], so they've [[NothingIsScarier never been directly seen]] ... and hopefully they won't.

* Most of the middle of The Branches of Darkmeyer is this, along with large doses of TearJerker. To elaborate, you'll essentially be forced to do [[MoralEventHorizon Zamorak's bidding]] as you:
** Mock and torture an imprisoned widow, whom you can free after the quest. Did we forget to mention ''you'' killed her husband?
*** It's made even worse if you torture her too much, because after the quest, you can't free her. She just says that it'll all be over soon.

* "Nomad's Elegy" concludes with a boss fight between the player, aided by Death, Icthlarin and Xenia, and Nomad alongside a godly construct that Nomad named "Gielinor" -- a horrifically twisted parody of Guthix's appearance, [[HumanResources built by souls in the form of bodies]] that appear to be [[AndIMustScream half-assimilated and in a constant state of agony]]. You do get to destroy it, thankfully, and Death and Icthlarin release many of the trapped souls to their rightful place in the afterlife, but for the entirety of its brief existence it puts [[{{Franchise/Halo}} the Gravemind]] to shame.

* In Dimension of Disaster, an alternate universe where [[TheBadGuyWins Zemouregal took over Varrock]] and turned everyone into zombies, because you were never born and thus did not thwart his plans. Oh, you also learn that every other city and region you saved was taken over by other villains, turning it into a [[CrapsackWorld crapsack world]]. In the end, you do help save city, [[PyrrhicVictory but without Zemouregal's magic to sustain them]], the zombies will all crumble to dust.

** The CosmicHorrorStory has been [[DefiedTrope defied]] for once, as the [[EnemyMine combined effort]] of the Godless, Zamorakian, Armadylian and Saradominist factions stopped Tuska in her tracks and got her KilledOffForReal. Though, since the Godless basically swept the event, it gave rise to yet more NightmareFuel as it was [[ThatOneBoss Vorago]] who ultimately slew Tuska and [[TookALevelInBadass gained at least some of her godly power]] in the process. If anything, the game's constant SerialEscalation in [[GoddamnedBoss boss fights]] is about to get even worse ...

* As of Fate of the Gods, we have a wide variety of goodies. For starters, there is the Cradle, a massive volcano where a [[EldritchAbomination half stillborn, brain-damaged god-fetus]] is constantly having nightmares. Whenever she does, hordes of lesser monsters spawn from her dreams. Beneath her, we have the Elder Halls, essentially a nest for Elder Gods. When the "eggs" start to "hatch", they drain the soul of the world the nest is on, turning it from what Gielinor is now to the DeathWorld that Freneskae is now. And Gielinor's Elder Halls are apparently due to hatch soon. Runescape has gone from being a MedievalFantasy game to a CosmicHorrorStory.

* Three words: Queen Black Dragon. It looks like some sort of Leviathan, is known to be evil, and Jagex noted it that more than ''ten'' King Black Dragons can fit into her mouth alone. Made more terrifying how by she used a siren named Remora for unknown reasons, then torched her alive ''at point blank range''. She has obvious connections with the Dragonkin based on their symbols being [[SigilSpam seen often on the way to her]]. Yes, this EldritchAbomination is serving the ones that curb-stomped Lucien in an earlier quest. Keep note that she will be out later [[OhCrap this month as an instance-only boss]].

* And if you thought that the Elder Gods were bad enough as {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, [[WordOfGod Jagex's developers have confirmed]] that the next World Event will be centered on the [[AlmightyIdiot mindless]], [[PlanetEater world-destroying]] [[EverythingsMessierWithPigs porcine]] [[GodIsDumb goddess]] [[OmnicidalManiac Tuska]]. She's already TheDreaded to the few characters who even know about her in-universe, thanks to ravaging Guthix's [[DoomedHometown old homeworld of Naragun]] amongst other planets and dimensions, and neither gods nor mortals have been any more than [[CurbStompBattle mere speed-bumps]] to [[TheJuggernaut Tuska]] and her {{Mooks}} at all. Once she's finished [[RapePillageAndBurn doing the same]] [[ApocalypseHow to part or all of Gielinor]], whatever will be left of the world [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore will be anyone's guess]].

* Speaking of Daemonheim, we now know more about the backstory of the place, which leaves a lot of deeply unsettling mysteries. The Dishonor Among Thieves quest confirmed that the whispers in the place (which may have been what affected the protagonist of the aforementioned Vengeance saga) are not from Zamorak, and that he actually protects his followers from them...... so who is whispering?
