Distant Land is a music track that is unlocked at Burgh de Rott and south of Barrows. It can also be unlocked near the Uzer ruins in rare circumstances. The track is later heard at the start of Temple Trekking.

Analysis[edit | edit source]

It is very melancholic at times, using deep choir and strings to convey a sense of sadness. The song alternates between slower and faster parts.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although the track is most likely not supposed to be unlockable in the Desert, players can do so by running over a specific tile along a north-west to south-east diagonal. According to data crowdsourced via RuneLite, approximately 0.5% of players unlock the track in this way, as opposed to 99.5% who unlock it near Burgh de Rott.
  • This track is a reference to the instrumental track "Laura Palmer's Theme" from the soundtrack of the Twin Peaks television show. The tracks start with identical chords and melodies, while the rest is extremely similar. Both tracks relate to the themes of mystery and desolation that surround both the plot of the series and Burgh de Rott's history.
