RuneScape fans have new stories to look forward to next year, as Titan Books has announced three new novels set in that universe. Get your first look at The Gift of Guthix.
Fantasy fans and RuneScape gamers have some new goodness on the horizon. Titan Books has announced they’ve snagged the rights to produce new novels based on the game’s universe with three novels. The first two novels are set to arrive in May and September 2024 respectively, while the third novel hits in February 2025. Today they’ve also given the initial details on the first novel titled, The Gift of Guthix.
In the first novel, Asgarnia’s fate hangs in the balance. Disparate tribes unite under the banner of Lord Raddalin, and his enemies look on in fear and hatred. Raddalin’s advisors – an uneasy alliance of Black and White knights – whisper of a discovery in the North that will give them the power to change everything.
Caught in the midst of history, a lowly scribe and the son of a Jarl hold the fate of Raddalin’s new kingdom in their hands.
From the glorious inauguration of King Raddalin’s reign to the disgraceful expulsion of the Zamorakians from Asgarnia, The Gift of Guthix tells an epic tale of the origin of magic, the plight of civil war, and the crushing defeat of the Fremennik Great Invasion. Amongst plots and betrayals, a penitent turncoat waits for her moment to leap into the unknown.
The novel will be penned by Erin M. Evans, the author of seven Forgotten Realms novels for Wizards of the Coast, including the 2011 Scribe Award winner Brimstone Angels. She is a content designer for Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms and a cast member of the D&D actual play Dungeon Scrawlers. Erin lives in the Seattle area with her husband and sons. Her latest series, Books of the Usurper, begins with Exile of Empires, published in November 2022 by Orbit.
RuneScape: The Gift of Guthix is set to arrive in May 2024.
