Town criers can be found in various cities across Gielinor. They ring their bells and announce information about the latest Old School RuneScape updates. If spoken to, they can provide players with information on Player Moderators, the Rules of Conduct, and handy tips.
Player Moderators who talk to a town crier can ask about more in-depth information about player moderators, including quick access to their guidelines.
- The town crier is one of the few NPCs who is apparently aware that Old School RuneScape is a computer game, as he says "...go to the website for more information." This is an example of an NPC breaking the fourth wall.
- When asked about Player Moderators, and then how to become one, the crier's final suggestion is "Be excellent to each other!" This is a reference to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.
- According to the Varrock census in the library, the name of the Varrock town crier is Gryff Aldock.
- The Crier outfit is a player-ownable version of the outfit worn by town criers.
