The Freaky Forester is a random event in which players are teleported to a small clearing in a forest and asked to kill a pheasant with a certain number of tail feathers. After successfully completing this random event by delivering any pheasant to the Freaky Forester, players are rewarded with a piece of the Lederhosen set, or 500 coins if they already own the set, and the player is taken back to the player's former location before the event (whenever possible). The event can be left at any time by using the portal, this however grants no rewards if the event is not completed.

Dealing damage to pheasants grants no experience. Attempting to attack another pheasant with one in the inventory results in the message You already have a pheasant carcass. You don't need to kill another. If the player kills two pheasants (so there are two carcasses on the ground) and picks one up, attempting to pick up the second one results in the message You already have a pheasant carcass in your inventory, you don't need to kill another.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
Date unknown

All pheasants now drop the same item, so any pheasant can be killed instead of just the one requested by the Freaky Forester. Formerly, upon failure to deliver the correct raw pheasant no reward be given and the player would be teleported off to a random spot on the map rather than returned back to their origin.[1]

8 November 2018

The random event can now be left early by using the portal. The pheasants can also be attacked even if attack options are set to hidden.

6 February 2014

A warning screen is now removed correctly when you complete the Freaky Forester event.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lederhosen are a traditional German apparel.
  • Pheasants cannot be killed after handing in a raw pheasant.
  • Fires cannot be lit inside this random event, preventing you from cooking the pheasants

When it was made as an anti-bot event, the idea was that bots couldn't just keep giving him pheasants until they stumbled upon the correct one and claimed the reward. So he takes what he's given, but the reward is dependent on it being the correct one."
