After the initial announcement of RuneFest on Saturday and yesterday’s reveal of the Golden Gnome Awards, today we’re excited to tell you all about the fantastic Insider Sessions that will be taking place at RuneFest 2010!
The Insider Sessions are our way of showing you what goes on here at Jagex and how we make RuneScape. We know that many of you love learning about what goes into making RuneScape and, at RuneFest, we’ll finally have the chance to show you how everything fits together. We’ll have talks from all of the key figures at Jagex, including (but not limited to) RuneScape’s creators Andrew and Paul Gower, CEO Mark Gerhard (Mod MMG) and RuneScape’s Lead Designer Mod Mark.
The Insider Sessions will be taking place throughout the day at RuneFest and we’ve a packed schedule of discussions and presentations for attendees to choose from, including sessions where you'll get the chance to use our tools to create actual RuneScape content. There will be talks from all of the key teams who work on RuneScape, including the Graphics, Audio and Content teams, who’ll explain how they help make the game. We’ll also have a number of light-hearted sessions where we’ll be taking a sideways look at RuneScape. Best of all, we want to make sure that you get involved too, by hosting some sessions where you choose the topic.
We want your topic ideas for an Insider Session at RuneFest 2010, so we’re kicking off a competition to find the very best. All session ideas will be considered, from presentations to demonstrations, Q&A sessions, or games and panel sessions. If you have an idea, we want to hear about it!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all at RuneFest 2010!
