Renmark was a world described by Guthix as "a world of divine beauty and fabulous magic", and a "realm of wild nature" where four courts of the seasons were in constant conflict, maintaining a tumultous balance of power. It was the homeworld of many different races, including the centaurs, ice sprites, stags and unicorns.

At some point in the distant past, the young god Guthix visited Renmark using The Blade, an Elder Artifact he had taken from Skargaroth. Discovering a corrupt, ravenous, bloated parasite (possibly Xau-Tak)[1] that fed on the living at the planet's core, Guthix sought to cut this evil from the world. This attempt led to the inadvertent destruction of Renmark, scattering fragments of it throughout the cosmos.

Of these fragments, Guthix was only able to locate what would later become known as the Land of Sunlight, the Land of Snow, and the Land of Holly and Hawthorn, leaving the fate of most of the planet unknown to him. Guthix also believed that the parasite survived the world's shattering, and that its tendrils entwined the threads of mortality and took root in the pathways he had opened with the sword.

Some time later, the god Saradomin located another of Renmark's fragments, the Enchanted Valley, and enlisted its centaurs and unicorns to his forces.[2]

During the 6th Age Memorial to Guthix event, an adventurer collects the Elder Sword engram. Upon viewing the memory hidden within the engram, the adventurer witnesses Guthix's memory of Renmark's demise, along with Guthix's remorse at causing its end.


  • The name is Nordic, and means "Pure earth" or "Pure soil".
  • The parasite is mentioned in the book "The Queen and the King" and is given the name of Mur.
