You know if the bloom/glow graphic update is released, it would be excellent if some weapons/armor/eye? can be enchanted so it can glow. Imagine glowing godswords....killing stuff while looking sexy.

You mean killing stuff with lightsabers?


omg new skill is starwars! ;O
or sailing... and surfing as part of it. sunami+surfing must be good X)

I think the key to it all is that intriguing phrase, "Acolyte until."
I ran it through my anagramaticon, and I believe I have some very enlightening results to share with you, arranged by increasing order of likelihood.

1. I telly a count
The strange power was unleashed when Mod Mark, exploring the Underworld beta in preparation for the new skill (Shamanics), cast TeleOther Camelot on Count Draynor.

2. I call you tent
As Nomad dies yet once more, an intense wave of wistfulness for the simple abode he will never again see Wells up within him, spilling out with his dying word to shake every Citizen of Gielinor.

3. Into a lye cult
The strange power was but the first of a series of mass initiations into the Coven of Color, run by the witches in Draynor and Rimmington.

4. Icy toll, a tune
This one's got to be it. This refers to the frozen door in the God Wars Dungeon, as well as the new skill: Music. Why else were musicians introduced all over the place? Huh? You'll need a certain degree of musical skill to 'play' open the door, and the bosses within will all have instruments. It'll be like a Battle of the Bands, but for your very life!


Hope I've cut through all the callow speculation with my well-grounded and fact-based prognostication.
You're welcome.

In movies you can. :P
Also, I dare anyone saying its an earthquake to find and show me a video of someone experiencing an earthquake when the strange power happened.

The update was planned for this week, but due to difficulties with the game engine it is postponed to next week.

I may be looking too hard, but there has to be a reason why free to play got this as well. Not much points to there being a new skill, so if they update would be for free to play as well, it would have to be something that we don't know about yet. But the way the seers say something new, and how practically every other possibility we know about points to members. really tells me this update is going to be for members. I believe free to play didn't get this event as a way to tell us it's also a free to play update, but as a hint instead. Both "Free to play" and "Fairy Tales Part 3" share the same acronym "FTP". Mind you, the quest has a 3 at the end. Though the bigger part of the quest name "Fairy Tales Part" is shared between both current quest. As I said, I'm probably just looking too hard. But it does explain a few conflicting issues.

I still find it funny how a hint that revealed nearly no new information has made a 34 page topic. We'll just have to wait a week to see what's going to happen. Probably has nothing to do with the Strange Power though, might be a update few weeks later.

I personally think Jagex will do something totally the opposite to everything suggested. I think they have thrown a curveball. I can image something like 'remember the strange power a few weeks ago? well it was really those darned penguins collecting flowers near Varrock!'

FTP is the nooby new skool reference though.

Decent up standing people and Jagex themselves use F2P and P2P not FTP and PTP

Something like the DFS or construction?

*Note the two things these have in common are the they were not told to us (well construction was I guess technically, but the DFS came out of nowhere)

You're welcome.

The MMO, Ragnarok Online, has a Bard Class. Jagex has told us time and time again that the new skill has never been done before by any other game, which is why they have told us next to nothing about it. Therefore, Music/Bard will NOT be the new skill.

However, if your anagram is correct, all that it probably means is that we will receive a new music track called Icy Tune, probably foreshadowing a new(ish) snowy area (like GWD, as you said).

Hah.

Oh geez.

After about the twentieth or so page I can't keep reading.

Look, it was just a joke. His choice of words mean NOTHING besides the fact that he took the first anagram on a list after punching his phrase into an anagram generator. He could have easily gone with something else on the list and then you'd be discussing those words instead.

"Acolyte until" is the alphabetical first phrase that will come out of an anagram generator if we're not counting chemical words. Which most common generators will not use.

JUST A JOKE.

I swear you folks could turn a sneeze on a tissue into dragon crossbows or something.

Anyway, I'm leaning more towards the ritual (it kind of looks like the ritual) but anything could happen :P Echo of the future? Current event? Things are getting more chaotic.

I'll be staring at this video to see if anything else was going on.
