The Freaky Forester is a random event.

Players are teleported to a small clearing in a remote forest in Gielinor where they are asked to kill a pheasant with a certain number of tail feathers. Dealing damage to pheasants grants no experience. 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.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
Date unknown

At least one of the following two things now happen: Freaky Forester will now accept any pheasant for a reward, while still requesting a specific pheasant, and/or all pheasants always drop on death the Freaky Forester's requested variant of raw pheasant.[confirmation needed]

Formerly, upon failure to deliver the correct raw pheasant not only would no reward be given, but 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.

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."
