Gielinor (pronunciation: /ˈgil-in-ȯr/ "GILL-in-or") is the name Guthix gave to the fictional world more commonly known as RuneScape where the eponymous game takes place. Gielinor's mainland comprises the kingdoms of Misthalin, Asgarnia, Kandarin and Morytania, the tropical island of Karamja, the Kharidian Desert, the Wilderness, the south-western ogre lands of the Feldip Hills, the hidden elven lands of Tirannwn, and the northern Fremennik Province and Troll Country.

Far west of the mainland is the continent of Zeah, which comprises the Kingdom of Great Kourend, the Kebos Lowlands and the Kingdom of Varlamore.

Other regions such as the Eastern Lands, Acheron and the penguin Motherland are known to exist, but inaccessible.

Creation[edit | edit source]

In the First Age the god Guthix discovered the world of Gielinor. He would then travel to Tarddiad to invite Seren to this newly discovered world, one that Guthix had deemed perfect, and together they would terraform the planet and bring many races through the World Gate to Gielinor.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
