As soon as this yearâ€™s Easter update was confirmed, the arguments began, Will it be the Evil Chicken or the Chocatrice who reigns supreme this Easter? The debate escalated pretty quickly and as a result, two J-Mods have bet their dignity on the outcome. Mod Sabre is a big fan of the Evil Chicken and is sure that, come the end of Easter, the Chocatrice will be the NPC with the most egg on its face. Meanwhile, Paul M strongly believes that, after years of poultry-based abuse, the Evil Chicken has it coming, and ultimately the Chocatrice will be crowned King of Easter. Who wins? You decide!
Whatever happens, one thing is sure: one of these J-mods will face the humiliating forfeit of spending a full 24hrs in Mod Sammyâ€™s bunny suit. Fortunately, thanks to the magic of video, it wonâ€™t just be shop assistants, fellow J-mods and, inevitably, the local traffic police who get to witness this tragic sight of a grown man in a smelly 3rd hand rabbit suit – weâ€™ll film it all for your viewing pleasure too! Voting takes place the old-fashioned way: by hunting down Easter eggs, pointing your Eggsterminator and food-processing chicks in the name of your chosen candidate. The NPC with the most support wins. On Monday April 16, weâ€™ll do the maths and bring you the results as we check support all across RuneScape. Meanwhile, both J-Mods will be campaigning for your support and have created Campaign HQ threads to try and tempt you to their camp. Mod Sabreâ€™s poultry effort is here, while Paul Mâ€™s steamroller of a campaign starts here!
Behind the scenes is a sneak peek at the planned game updates which we hope to launch in the coming month. This is, however, only a plan, not a promise that a particular update will be released in a particular way or at a particular time. To get you the highest quality updates as quickly as possible, we usually keep on tweaking and testing right up until the moment before release, so, sometimes, things change or take a bit longer than expected. We arenâ€™t afraid to change our plan if necessary, as we will never launch an update before it is ready.
