The RuneScape Council is an organisation that serves as the in-universe version of Jagex in the capacity of "rulers" of Gielinor. It is referred to in many older pieces of content and God Letters and does not seem to have been referenced after 2006. For example, when membership was first released, it was referred to in the God Letters as the council's "tithe", and many upcoming updates were announced as additions by the council.

The following references to the council are made outside the God Letters:
