Miscellania, which includes the western Kingdom of Miscellania and eastern Kingdom of Etceteria, is a series of two small islands off the north-west coast of the Fremennik Province.

Prior to the player intertwining themselves in the affairs of these two islands, King Vargas of Miscellania and Queen Sigrid of Etceteria had been at war for 100 years.

The islands are unusual in that they can be, after the completion of the quest Throne of Miscellania, managed by the player. Most resources on the island, if obtained by working them, will be sent directly to the citizens, raising the player's popularity. Few things can be gathered by the player directly here.

Travel[edit | edit source]

Notable features[edit | edit source]

Bank[edit | edit source]

There is a bank on the north-east side of Etceteria.

Anvil[edit | edit source]

A usable anvil can be found to the north of Miscellania.

Castle courtyards[edit | edit source]

There are identical fish and vegetable stalls in the courtyards of both the Miscellanian and Etceterian castles which sell a variety of fishing gear, raw sardines and common vegetables. In Miscellania, one can find the Greengrocer of Miscellania and Island Fishmonger, while in Etceteria, one can find Island Greengrocer and Etceteria Fish. Mixed flowers can be bought from Flower Girl in the Miscellanian courtyard for 15gp each.

Farming patches[edit | edit source]

There is a bush patch and a spirit tree patch on Etceteria, both operating like any other patch of its type would throughout Gielinor, the former being one of the only ways the player can obtain resources on their own on the island. There are nearby vegetable and flower patches, but these are only used in kingdom management; players cannot grow or collect their own crops from them.

Vast wheat, potato and cabbage fields can be found on the southern side of Miscellania. Anything collected from them will be directly obtained by the player and not count towards increasing popularity. If wheat is taken from the wheat field, the Farmer tending to it will respond by saying "Oi! Leave my wheat alone!" However, this has no negative affect on popularity.

Miscellania and Etceteria Dungeon[edit | edit source]

The Miscellanian side of the Miscellanian and Etceterian Dungeon (which can only be accessed once the player is permitted to do so during the Royal Trouble quest) contains the small Dwarvan/Fremennik settlement Miscellania Expansion, which consists of many additional shops, those being:

Directly north of the shops are a bronze pickaxe spawn (indicated by a rock with the option "Take-pickaxe Rocks") and small coal mine, the pickaxes and coal being obtainable by the player.

The caves also have many Sea Snake Hatchlings and Sea Snake Youngs the player can fight on the Etceterian side of the caves.

Managing your kingdom[edit | edit source]

Once the Throne of Miscellania quest has been completed, the player becomes Prince or Princess Regent of the island of Miscellania. The citizens of Miscellania will then work, if funded properly and if the player's popularity is high enough, to gather a variety of resources.

Resource gathering and the funding of it can be managed through Advisor Ghrim, who resides in the throne room in the castle on Miscellania.

If the subsequent quest Royal Trouble has been completed, the Kingdom of Etceteria will also begin working for the player.

Almost all resources the player collects on the island will be sent directly to the citizens of the island, increasing the popularity of the player for having done so. Resources can only be obtained on Miscellania through kingdom management, buying them from shops, the bush patch on Etceteria, the wheat and vegetable fields on the southern part of Miscellania, and the Miscellania and Etceteria Dungeon.

The weeding, watering and composting patches on Miscellania and Etceteria should no longer get their states stuck.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Miscellania" most likely comes from the word "miscellaneous," possibly named as such due to the large number of islands in the area and the lack of importance Miscellania plays in the history and intrigue of Gilenor.
  • The name "Etceteria" most likely comes from the Latin phrase "et cetera," meaning "and other things." This is possibly due to the fact that the island is aloof from the more common playable areas in RuneScape.
  • The banker seems to wear the female version of the Armadyl pendant or the Pendant of lucien.
  • The Etceterian dungeon entrance prevents players from walking around the outside of the castle along its eastern wall. Players who are walking from the north can bypass this by entering the dungeon and immediately leaving it, as they will reappear south of the entrance. Players wishing to walk in the other direction cannot use this trick as exiting the dungeon always places the player on the south side of the entrance.
