A seasonal quest, Violet is Blue, is also heading to Runescape and is set to launch on the 17th of December. Players will take part in a magical adventure as they help a little girl raised by yetis realise her dream of visiting the annual yeti festival. A magical and heart-warming tale, Violet is Blue is RuneScape’s answer to *those* Christmas adverts.
