Well, MOM can be found in-game, but I want to make a theory on what he and others are up to now that random events are no longer around.

 

I'd imagine that the Mysterious Old Man is bored out of his mind since he can't really do anything with other players anymore.

 

He's probably sitting at a bar drinking alcohol all day, and who can really blame him?

 

I'm not asking for facts, I'm asking for theories on what the random events could be up to now. Since really that would make for more fun discussions.

But the problem is if you visit the myseterious old man, he only gives history on how the random events were, he doesn't really say what he's up to now.

My theory is the Mysterious Old Man is living a quiet life in Draynor telling people who come to visit him about the days of old when random events were a thing and that all his random event cohorts can be found living their lives and doing their own things in the places he describes that have been helpfully listed in the rswiki.

Yeah but what is the Mysterious Old Man doing when he's NOT talking to players? That's something that's not explained in the game or the wiki for that matter.

He's a peeping tom, but since no one showers or bathes in Runescape it's not going anywhere.
Back after a 5 year TIF hiatus. Please don't mind me too much.

He is living a quiet life in reminiscing about his golden years with all the artefacts of his events he saved hoping for someone to come by and ask him about stuff.

"He wants to live peacefully"? I'm sorry but I don't buy that.

 

Why would a guy who spent most of his time being a creepy stalker all of a sudden want to live a peaceful life? It's not like he stopped because he learned his lesson the only reason he stopped is because random events have become illegal in Gielnor.

 

I'm 92% sure he's just bored all day since there are no computers or TV in Gielnor.

I did not say he wants to live peacefully, if you are going to quote someone in speech marks at least make the effort to even try and get close to what they wrote.

 

I said he is living a peacefully life reminiscing.

What he is doing and what he wants to do need not align - many people in life do not do what they want.

That doesn't really refute my point though, because I said he's bored all day, and you know what? He probably is. And who could blame him?

mechanics wise he doesn't exist until he is called to bother a player.

 

Story wise I imagine him sitting in a house full of big brother security cameras rolling dice to see who he is going to visit next :lol:
