All of the monsters and thier discriptions are all copied from the runescape bestiary.

Height: 5 ft 11 in
Weight: 235 lbs
Varieties: Level 21
Locations: The Wilderness
Appearance: Human
Way of Life: They live by the unique Bandits' Code of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. If you define 'the poor' as them and 'the rich' as everyone else.
Likes: Shiny gold coins. And lots of them. Kept in easy to open moneybags.
Dislikes: The long arm of the Law.


Height: 6 ft 2 in
Weight: 235 lbs
Varieties: Level 7
Level 8
Locations: The Barbarian Village
Appearance: Muscle-clad bearded warriors
Way of Life: Self-sufficient. Having plundered and pillaged in the tribal warfare of days gone by, some contemporary barbarians have now dropped anchor with settlements of their own. Remaining relatively neutral, they could be a useful force indeed if anyone could tempt them into an alliance...
Likes: Wood-chopping
Dislikes: Anyone who uses magic in battle


Height: 5 ft (8ft at full stretch)
Weight: 600 lbs
Varieties: Level 19
Level 21
Locations: Bears like to roam the forests
Appearance: Large and deceptively cuddly looking
Way of Life: Bears are happiest when minding their own business, but they live in a world which values their fur. If disturbed by an adventurer in search of loot, these noble beasts pack quite a punch!
Likes: Hibernating
Dislikes: Fur-lined jackets

  Black Dragon

Height: 32 ft long
Weight: See Red Dragon
Varieties: Level 227
Locations: Taverley Dungeon
These awesome destroyers can usually be identified by the large pile of human bones that tend to surround them
Appearance: Jet black. That reddy-orange tint is actually just an optical illusion, because one is normally viewing them through a torrent of flames
Way of Life: King-like
Likes: Their long-held supremacy, which is now waning
Dislikes: The non-stop nature of evolution itself shown by the recent emergence of the King Black Dragon

  Black Knight

Height: 6 ft on the nose
Weight: 200 lbs exactly: robust but fighting fit
Varieties: Level 33
Locations: Black Knight Fortress in the north, Taverley Dungeon, and the Lava Maze (wilderness)
Appearance: Large and foreboding, it is no wonder that these bad boys were once the talk of Runescape. And even now they continue to swing their weapons with the full weight of their illustrious history.
Way of Life: Educated and refined, these dashing villains like to unwind over a glass of mulled wine and Baxtorian poetry. They spit on peasants and refuse to pay taxes - but they still know how to treat a lady
Likes: Mulled wine and poetry. Remember this if ever you lack the motivation to decapitate someone
Dislikes: Peasants and taxes

  Blue Dragon

Height: 5 ft
Weight: 290 lbs
Varieties: Level 48
Level 111
Locations: Taverley Dungeon
Appearance: As their name suggests, these magnificent creatures can be identified by their distinctive sky blue appearance
Way of Life: The Blue Dragons guard the early stages of Taverley Dungeon. A beautiful yet fearsome creature, these guardians are but a taste of things to come
Likes: The tranquility of Taverley Lake. But prized for their flesh, these beasts now take refuge in the dungeon, where would-be attackers must fight the dragon on his own terms
Dislikes: Rangers

Height: 5 ft 8 in
Weight: 280 lbs
Varieties: Level 42
Locations: Al Kharid
Appearance: Lumpy
Way of Life: Sleepy
Likes: Sandy places
Dislikes: People who try to use them as horses, in direct defiance of Saradomin's teachings

  Chaos Druid

Height: 5 ft 8 in
Weight: 210 lbs
Varieties: Level 13
Locations: Taverly Dungeon
Appearance: They dress in the distinctive blood red robes of Zamorak
Way of Life: Masters of herblore, their friendly demeanour belies a dangerous knowledge of the dark arts
Likes: Using runestones as a source of darkness
Dislikes: Religious factions. As Chaos Druids, they have links with both Guthix and Zamorak. Being something of an unknown quantity, the chaos druids could be the ones to tip the balance in a major struggle

  Chaos Druid Warrior

Height: 5 ft 10 in
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 37
Locations: Yanille Dungeon
Appearance: See Chaos Druid.
But with more armour and weaponry.
Way of Life: A more bloodthirsty version of the Chaos Druids - rumours say all their solitude has driven them insane with bloodlust
Likes: The thrill of victory
Dislikes: The agony of defeat

  Chaos Dwarf

Height: 4 ft 3 in.
Weight: 220 lbs
Varieties: Level 48
Locations: Chaos dwarves can be found in dungeons and the wilderness
Appearance: Slightly heftier than their good ancestors, these dwarves clearly have an appetite for destruction. But more remarkable is their reddish hue, a clear sign of their beserker tendencies
Way of Life: Homicidal. It is believed that the chaos dwarves have been touched by Zamorak himself
Likes: Slamming an axe in your face
Dislikes: Polite conversation


Height: 12 in
Weight: 5 lbs
Varieties: Level 1
Locations: Chicken pens, in Lumbridge and around Runescape
Appearance: Mouth-watering
Way of Life: Chivvied. Their hurried looking walk first evolved in Runescape, where beginners prey on chickens to up their levels
Likes: A simple life
Dislikes: Meeting new people


Height: 5 ft 10 in.
Weight: 1,500 lbs
Varieties: Level 2
Locations: Enclosures north of Lumbridge, and near crafting guild
Appearance: Beefy
Way of Life: Passive. Rumours about cows being armed to the teeth proved false. However, their hides are often used by people to make leather goods
Likes: Vegetarians
Dislikes: Comments about their sanity

Dark Warrior
Height: 5 ft 10 in
Weight: 200 lbs
Varieties: Level 8
Locations: The Wilderness
Appearance: Well-armed
Way of Life: Mercenary.
Dark warriors do not enjoy the same status as Dark wizards or Dark knights, so they tend to hang around in small groups of like-minded individuals
Likes: To stay one step ahead of the authorities
Dislikes: Other followers of Zamorak.
Despite their shared allegiance, the Dark warriors prefer to keep themselves to themselves. Bear this in mind if you plan on disturbing them

  Dark Wizard

Height: 5 ft 8 in
Weight: 160 lbs
Varieties: Level 7
Level 20
Locations: Dark Wizards' Tower; the Stone Circle south of Varrock; the Wilderness
Appearance: Like the wizard. Only darker
Way of Life: Machiavellian: Dark Wizards will do anything to further the cause of Zamorak.
And if that means burning many of their own number in the Wizards' Tower, then so be it
Likes: Treachery. For all their dark arts, it is ultimately their ability to deceive their fellow man that makes them so dangerous
Dislikes: People who think that they can't be trusted.
The fact is that the incident with the Wizards' Tower was a one-off, and it'll never happen again. Surely you of all people could find it in your heart to give them a second chance?

  Deadly Red Spider

Height: 25 in
Weight: 15 lbs
Varieties: Level 31
Locations: Karamja Volcano, Varrock Sewers
Appearance: Red
Way of Life: Predatorial.
But this is a two way process, as anyone trained in the art of apothecary knows that the Deadly Red Spider's eggs can be used to make a potent strength potion
Likes: Closing in for the kill. Dispensing with the usual small-talk, The Deadly Red Spider goes straight for the jugular
Dislikes: The whole "which is better, red or green?" debate


Height: 5 ft 8 in
Weight: 160 lbs
Varieties: Level 33
Locations: The Druid Circle and the Druid Village
Appearance: Dressed in gleaming white robes, you could be forgiven for forgetting that the druids are in fact neutral
Way of Life: It is said that the druids may have used the runestones, long before the mages of the East discovered them. But the druids are a solitary lot, and as their numbers dwindle it is feared that their secrets may die with them
Likes: Making potions, using their herblore abilities.
Druids also rely on the power of the runestone, which may be the unifying factor behind all that is seen and unseen
Dislikes: Socialising.
Their reluctance to mix with other has alienated them from all those who are suspicious of druid rituals- from townsfolk to the followers of Saradomin

  Dungeon Rat

Height: Approx 1 ft long
Weight: 40 lbs
Varieties: Level 12
Locations: Under Clock Tower
Appearance: Ratty
Way of Life: A very sociable creature (to other rats anyway), rats tend to be found in large groups in areas with a lot of refuse, as they dont like to try too hard to find their food.
Likes: Recycling - mainly wasted food and corpses into Rat droppings.
Dislikes: Contrary to popular belief, is not that fond of cheese.


Height: 4 ft 2 in.
Weight: 200 lbs
Varieties: Level 9
Level 10
Level 20
Locations: In and around the Ice Mountain
Appearance: Short and stout
Way of Life: Moody and dour.
Though not very religious, dwarves show their respects to Guthix, the source of the iron ore which they mine so diligently
Likes: Difficult to say, since nothing seems to put them in a good mood.
But they are at least less grumpy when they're making things
Dislikes: Some say that dwarves just don't like people, but this does not account for all the other races that irritate them. Their bark is worse than their bite, however

Earth Warrior
Height: 6 ft 1in
Weight: 260 lbs
Varieties: Level 45
Level 47
Locations: Edgeville Dungeon
Appearance: Men made of earth
Way of Life: Nobody is sure where they came from, or what they do for fun.
Other than attacking players that is.
Likes: Nobody has ever been around them long enough to find out
Dislikes: Becoming muddy. This means something entirely different for Earth Warriors.

Height: 5 ft 10 in
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 7
Locations: Farmers turn up on farms and near windmills throughout Runescape
Appearance: Human
Way of Life: Despite their subsistence lifestyle, farmers are surprisingly affluent, and have even been known to horde valuable runestones.
Could they be the missing link to the ancient mystery of the druids?
It seems unlikely
Likes: A cooked breakfast
Dislikes: Trespassers walking on their land


Height: 5 ft 10 in
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 15
Locations: McGrubor's Wood
Appearance: human
Way of Life: Gentle forest dwelling folk, who make a meagre living out of felling trees and trapping animals for pelts and food.

Dislikes: Being attacked for easy experience

Height: N/A
Weight: N/A
Varieties: Level 19
Level 24
Locations: Draynor Manor, Varrock sewers' dungeon
Appearance: Ethereal
Way of Life: Ghosts drift about in state of some distress, existing as spirits but outside the refuge of the gods

Height: 7 ft 2 in
Weight: 290 lbs
Varieties: Level 28 (hill)
Level 42 (moss)
Level 53 (ice)
Level 86 (fire)
Locations: The wilderness and most dungeons
Appearance: Gigantic
Way of Life: Giants are said to be one of the oldest races in Runescape, which each type having evolved according to the different kinds of environment that they were exposed to
Likes: Personal space- as found in dungeons and the wilderness
Dislikes: Anyone who gets under their feet

  Giant Bat

Height: Quite high off the ground
Weight: 30 lbs
Varieties: Level 27
Locations: Outside Morgan le Faye Castle and in Taverley Dungeon
Appearance: Large winged vermin- to the untrained eye these things are basically rats with wings
Way of Life: Annoying.
Giant bats will make a point of flapping in your face (no, I said "flapping") just when you're trying to do the crucial part of a quest. You'd happily kill the whole jolly lot of them, if only you could be bothered
Likes: Caves and dungeons
Dislikes: Sitting still

  Giant Rat

Height: 2 ft
Weight: 120 lbs
Varieties: Level 3
Level 6

Appearance: Eight-legged and hairy
Way of Life: Incy-wincy; but watch out for the giant spider's bite
Likes: To try and try again
Dislikes: People who don't look where they're standing


Height: 2 ft 2 in
Weight: 60 lbs
Varieties: Level 1
Level 19 (Guards)
Locations: The Tree Gnome village and Grand Tree stronghold
Appearance: Pint-sized
Way of Life: The gnomes are a spirited lot, always ready with a quip for those who stumble over them. They are also keen entrepreneurs, carving out restaurants and cocktail bars into their wooden abode
Likes: Gnomes like to stick together, forming tight-knit communities under the rule of a gnome king
Dislikes: The Runescape annual basketball tournament. So they play gnomeball instead


Height: 5 ft 4 in
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 2
Level 5
Level 13 (spear)
Locations: Goblins are common right across Runescape, and particularly in the goblin village of north Asgarnia; around Lumbridge, and the woods near Port Sarim
Appearance: Green and warty
Way of Life: Whilst not exactly "civilised", goblins do build mud huts to form small communities. Cowardly and weak, they are good targets for low-level players
Likes: Eating slugs and worms
Dislikes: Complex mental challenges

  Greater Demon

Height: 8ft 6in
Weight: 350 lbs
Varieties: Level 92
Locations: Entrana, Lava Maze (underground), ruins in (north-east) wilderness.
Appearance: As Zamorak's representative on Runescape, these demons are immediately recognisable by their capacity to kill you in a matter of seconds. And with the Greater Demon, what you see is what you get
Way of Life: Not known
Likes: Being master of all that they survey
Dislikes: Cowards.
If you go to fight a Greater Demon, don't run away or retreat. You'll still get killed, but at least he'll respect you more that way

  Grey Wolf

Height: Up to 7ft long
Weight: 230 lbs
Varieties: Level 64
Locations: The Wilderness
Appearance: Like a Guard Dogs' meaner, crazier, and more bloodthirsty uncle.
Way of Life: There are many people who claim the wolfs' reputation as a killer is undeserved, and that they rarely attack humans. Those people have never encountered a hungry pack of grey wolves.
To the Grey Wolf, everything else is either dinner or potential dinner.
Likes: Running in packs looking for food.
Dislikes: Being called a Bad Dog.


Height: 5 ft 10in
Weight: 220 lbs
Varieties: Level 21
Level 22
Locations: Throughout the towns, wherever things may need guarding, especially gates and banks
Appearance: Stout and intimidating, these guards give the distinct impression that they will not be open to negotation
Way of Life: Inflexible.
If a guard has been told not to let people past, he'll keep that entrance blocked come hell or high water. But if you just want to beat up some old man a few yards away, he'll conveniently turn a blind eye.It's just not his job to care
Likes: Maintaining order
Dislikes: The smell of corruption that seems to surround their pay masters- from local town councillors, right up to the top of the ladder

  Guard Dog

Height: 6 ft long
Weight: 170 lbs
Varieties: Level 44
Locations: Brimhaven, Ardougne, McGrubor's Wood
Appearance: Goes for the standard, no-nonsense guard-dog look
Way of Life: Limited. These animals do nothing for the claim that a dog is a man's best friend.
Unless your idea of a best friend is someone who rips your limbs off with their teeth
Likes: Barking at intruders
Dislikes: Cats

Height: A whopping 9 ft long at full stretch
Weight: 280 lbs
Varieties: Level 122
Locations: Taverley Dungeon
Appearance: Like a dog out of hell
Way of Life: "Zamorak's best friend". but they're not too chummy with anyone else that they encounter
Likes: Eating anything
Dislikes: Being killed.
Although this is pretty rare


Height: 6ft 2in
Weight: 205 lbs
Varieties: Level 69
Locations: Hero's can be found in the cosmopolitan city of Ardougne, secretly hoping for some injustice to be perpetrated so that they can pounce to the rescue
Appearance: With perfect abs and a well-chiselled jaw line, these All-Runescapian Heroes make you want to up your levels. If only so that you can do something to wipe that smug smile off their face
Way of Life: Heroic
Likes: A challenge
Dislikes: Laziness- and particularly those parasites who would beg for "free stuff". Any hero worth his salt would strike down those freeloaders in a Runescape minute - were it not for the recent law that was passed to prevent the recreational execution of beggars


Height: 6 ft
Weight: 200 lbs
Varieties: Level 5
Locations: At major junctions: south of Draynor manor, and between Rimmington and Falador
Appearance: Stylish, cape-wearing human
Way of Life: Legendary. The highwayman is elegant and dashing: the thinking man's mugger.
Although that isn't usually much consolation when he nicks your valuables
Likes: To prey on unsuspecting travellers, especially tourists
Dislikes: The idea that he should travel on a horse...
This can only be a myth


Height: 5 ft 8 in
Weight: 200 lbs
Varieties: Level 28
Level 42 (spear)
Locations: Hobgoblins can be found in the wilderness dungeons and the peninsula behind the crafting guild
Appearance: Larger than their goblin ancestors, Hobgoblins are stronger, but even more slow witted
Way of Life: If goblins are semi-civilised then hob-goblins are downright uncivilised. They attack indiscriminately, which does at least show a degree of fairness
Likes: To carry limpwurt roots to chew on and keep their teeth sharp. This is to help them devour opponents, rather than any real interest in personal hygiene
Dislikes: Comments about their appearance

Ice Spider
Height: 12 in
Weight: 25 lbs
Varieties: Level 61
Locations: White Wolf Mountain, Wilderness ice plateau
Appearance: Icy
Way of Life: These battle-hardened arachnids represent the price of admission for many hardcore Runescapers.
Likes: Their inhospitable terrain, which gives them an immediate homefield advantage in any combat situation
Dislikes: Non-members who attempt to stray into the members' area. The non-members' inability to access this area deprives the ice spiders of a tasty snack

  Ice Warrior

Height: Varies
Weight: Unknown
Varieties: Level 57
Locations: Ice Giant's Cave, White Wolf Mountain dungeon, wilderness
Appearance: Like men made of ice
Way of Life: Mysterious
Likes: The question "Do you want ice with that?" where "that" refers to an pick-axe that is then embedded in some smart-alec's head
Dislikes: Smart-alecs (see above)


Height: 10 in
Weight: 15 lbs
Varieties: Level 2
Locations: Imps have an annoying habit of turning up everywhere
Appearance: Small, with a distinctively bright red colour to them. Combine this with their cheeky impishness, and it's easy to see why some think of them as "little devils"
Way of Life: Opportunistic. Imps love to steal little items, such as wool, beads, food and hats
Likes: Running away just when you're about to kill them
Dislikes: People who confuse them with party hats

Jail Guard
Height: 5 ft 9in
Weight: 210 lbs
Varieties: Level 26
Locations: South of Draynor Village
Appearance: Greasy and unkempt, these jailers are still part of the human race- but only just
Way of Life: Disturbing. These jailers take a malicious pleasure in the incarceration of their prisoners. In some ways they are as evil as the Dark Knights, although some say that the jailers come from a more limited gene pool
Likes: Doing their master's dirty work
Dislikes: Wise-cracking jailbirds, who usually get their better of their slow-witted captors


Height: 7 ft
Weight: 300 lbs
Varieties: Level 48
Locations: The "jogre" or jungle ogre is frequently found in South Karamja, usually grouped together in clusters
Appearance: Large and green skinned
Way of Life: The jungle ogre is well camouflaged for life in jungle territories and often benefits from the element of surprise
Likes: Games of hide and seek with humans, who didn't know that they were playing until the jogre attacks
Dislikes: The assumption that they are just green skinned ogres. This prompts them to attack

  Jungle Spider

Height: 25 in
Weight: 15 lbs
Varieties: Level 42
Locations: Karamja Jungle
Appearance: Green and hairy
Way of Life: Sneaky. Perfectly camouflaged for the overgrown terrain, if you can't actually see a jungle spider it's probably because there's one looking right at you
Likes: Lurking in the jungle
Dislikes: Players who complain because their "best friends" paid less for a party hat.
These scrooges can look forward to a slow death on the web

King Black Dragon
Height: 40 ft long
Weight: How long is a piece of string? How heavy is a rock? What about a rock hard Dragon? We'll let you ask him
Varieties: level 276
Locations: Dwelling somewhere in the wilderness, this dragon is blatantly the biggest baddest mother (or father) in all of Runescape... so far.
Appearance: Looks like Trouble!
Way of Life: There are many different philosophies in RS, but the KBD subscribes to what we might call "existentialism"- the philosophy of doing whatever the heck you want
Likes: You, your friends, your family and even that other PKer you just met
Dislikes: You, your friends, your family and even that other PKer you just met

  Knight Of Ardougne

Height: Height: 6ft 1in
Weight: 220 lbs
Varieties: Level 46
Locations: City Of Ardougne
Appearance: Human... underneath all the armour.
Way of Life: Becoming a Knight has long been a favoured career choice for Ardougne's strongest and bravest young men, with their shiny armour and adherence to the rules of chivalry gaining them a certain reputation with the ladies.
Likes: Testing their prowess against each other in jousting duels for ladies handkerchiefs.
Dislikes: People who ignore their carefully constructed rules of chivalry

Lesser Demon
Height: 8ft 3in
Weight: 320 lbs
Varieties: Level 82
Locations: Karamja, Melzar's Maze, Lava Maze, Wizard's Tower, Crandor
Appearance: Red and horned
Way of Life: Zamorakian
Likes: Cocky young upstarts
Dislikes: The term "lesser".
A long and protracted legal battle resulted in several council members getting flame-grilled

Height: 5 ft 10in
Weight: 175 lbs
Varieties: Level 2 (generic man)
Locations: Humans are currently the dominant species on Runescape
Appearance: Human
Way of Life: Humans are certainly quite advanced creatures, building large communities and various labour-saving devices.
Whether they are exactly "civilised", however, is more open for debate...
Likes: Dark suits
Dislikes: Being attacked by players trying to up their levels.
This is where the phrase "Why does everything always happen to me?" comes from

  Magic Axe

Height: 1.5 ft
Weight: 80 lbs
Varieties: Level 42
Locations: Taverley Dungeon
Appearance: Large sharp axe. That flies
Way of Life: Little is known about these weapons, or how they came about.
Some people claim they are the unforeseen side effect of lazy Mages who didnt want to chop down their own trees just to cook dinner; others claim they are a secret weapon developed by Zamorakian followers to create havoc and destruction.
Everyone agrees they hurt when they hit you.
Likes: Separating you from your limbs.
Dislikes: Getting rusty.


Height: 6 ft
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 3
Level 5
Locations: The monastery to the west of Edgeville
Appearance: Human
Way of Life: Monastic. These men have achieved a level of devotion that few could hope to match
Likes: Saradomin
Dislikes: Zamorak

  Monk of Zamorak

Height: 6 ft
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 22
Level 45
Locations: Lower level monks dwell in the Chaos Temple of north Asgarnia; higher level monks can also be found in Taverley Dungeon
Appearance: Level 45 monks adorn themselves with the blood red robes of Zamorak
Way of Life: Ungodly- at least as far as Saradomin is concerned. These monks have perverted His sacred rituals, and corrupted them to please their own hellish master. But don't fall prey to crusader zeal- many a Saradominist has rushed headlong into Taverley Dungeon, never to be seen again
Likes: Zamorak
Dislikes: Saradomin

  Mountain Dwarf

Height: 4ft 2in
Weight: 200 lbs
Varieties: level 20
Locations: Beneath Wolf Mountain
Appearance: Vertically challenged
Way of Life: Secluded. These dwarves are happy just to be left to their own devices. They love nothing better than mining for ore and generally being at one with nature
Likes: The cool mountain air
Dislikes: Elves and horses


Height: 5 ft 10 in
Weight: 160 lbs
Varieties: Level 6
Locations: Varrock castle
Appearance: Shifty looking
Way of Life: The mugger is at the low-rent end of the mercerary lifestyle. With no real skill to his name, the mugger can never be sure that he will be able to rob you.
But he'll certainly have a really good try- and you have to respect him for that
Likes: Weaklings
Dislikes: Thieves. Muggers are envious of these more skilled criminals

Height: 5 ft 11in
Weight: 175 lbs
Varieties: Level 29
Locations: Near the City of Ardougne
Appearance: Necromancers are usually easily spotted by their pallid complexions, hatred of sunlight and strange smell of embalming fluids. They also tend to wear red with skull ornaments a lot.
Way of Life: Have an unhealthy obsession with death.
Unhealthy for players who encounter them who are not able to defeat large numbers of zombies anyway.
Likes: Adding new zombies to their growing armies of the undead.
Dislikes: Sunshine and cute furry animals

Height: 7 ft
Weight: 300 lbs
Varieties: Level 48 Level 53 Level 55 Level 60 Level 70 Level 74
Locations: Small numbers in Kandarin, although they have mostly been wiped out or captured by humans. Large numbers are located in the lands known as the Feldip Hills or "Ogre Country" to the south of Kandarin
Appearance: Tall and muscular
Way of Life: Brown skinned ogres form tribes and are primitive in nature. They tend to lumber around in a world of their own. It may be that they are deep in thought. But this seems unlikely
Likes: Attacking people smaller than them
Dislikes: Being wiped out by humans

  Otherworldly Being

Height: N/A
Weight: N/A
Varieties: Infinite
Locations: The otherworldly beings can be found in the Lost City of Zanaris. Wherever that is.
Appearance: Otherworldly. Although some say they look like a cross between a ghost and a witch
Way of Life: Nobody knows where they come from or why they do what they do...
Likes: Again, we don't really know this yet, but on face value these beings seem pretty happy just to be alive.
Is that something that they could teach us?
Dislikes: Being attacked by other beings who come from another world other than the one inhabited by the otherworldly being: e.g. people like you. Whatever the outcome, such mindless displays of violence can't be doing much for intergalactic relations

Height: 5ft 10in
Weight: 190 lbs
Varieties: Level 50
Level 53
Locations: Strutting around Ardougne, keeping a watchful eye from one day to the next
Appearance: Stout and robust looking, these holy warriors defy the ageing process by keeping themselves in great condition.
The barrel chests and firm biceps are just a bonus.
Way of Life: Challenging: when a man takes the holy vow of a Paladin, he makes a life-long commitment
Likes: To uphold the values of Saradomin at all costs:
"It is not that Saradominism has been tried and found wanting: it is that Saradominism has been tried and found difficult"
Dislikes: Pick-pockets in Ardougne. If this applies to you, just remember that their concept of mercy comes a definite second to their excellent swordsmanship


Height: 5 ft 9 in
Weight: 215 lbs
Varieties: Level 19
Level 20
Level 25
Locations: Pirates call Karamja their home, but some can also be found rooting around the Ice Giant cave
Appearance: Often seen sporting an eye-patch, pirates experience the highest rate of gouged eyes in Runescape
Way of Life: Hearty.
Pirates love eating, drinking and generally being merry. When it comes to having fun, nothing is too much expense- especially when they're spending your money!
Likes: Drinking
Dislikes: Being too far from the sea

  Poison Spider

Height: 12 in
Weight: 25 lbs
Varieties: Level 64
Locations: Taverley Dungeon, Lava Maze (wilderness)
Appearance: Vile, pus-squirting creatures that probably aren't going to win any best-looking spider awards any time soon
Way of Life: Hides in the undergrowth injecting smaller animals with venom for later consumption.
Likes: the death spasms of prey as they notice its bite too late
Dislikes: apothecaries

Red Dragon
Height: 30 ft long
Weight: The council tried to weigh one but she just wouldn't have it. We decided not to pursue the matter
Varieties: Level 152
Locations: The Dragon's spirit dictates that their environment will reflect their nature. The Baby Blue Dragon likes to reside close to peaceful Taverley Lake, the Red Dragon prefers the red hot magma of the lava lake
Appearance: As red as the RuneScape sun itself- and just as insistent!
Way of Life: Strolls around areas of the wilderness at leisure. Keeping Players at bay with her powerful Dragon Breath. You might want to take measures to protect yourself from this
Likes: So-called "Dragon Slayers". They generally fail
Dislikes: Actual "Dragon Slayers"

  Renegade Knights

Height: 6 ft 1in
Weight: 210 lbs
Varieties: Level 35
Locations: Morgan Le Faye Castle
Appearance: Sinister
Way of Life: Insular. Having parted company from the Knights of the Round Table, these renegades now worship Sir Mordred- the evil nemesis of King Arthur, their former master
Likes: Their independence.
Even the most pure of heart would have to acknowledge that the Knights of the Round Table can be quite stuffy at the best of times
Dislikes: Strange deliveries to their otherwise impregnable fortress


Height: 5ft 6in
Weight: 200 lbs
Varieties: Level 14
Locations: The wilderness
Appearance: Friendly and approachable. But these are not your Shakesperian "loveable old rogues"- they're the kind that will happily stab you in the face.
Way of Life: Rogueish.

  Shadow Spider

Height: 10 in
Weight: 20 lbs
Varieties: Level 49

Likes: Hiding, waiting for the kill
Dislikes: Other spiders

Varieties: Various
Locations: Ghost-town dungeon, Members' dungeon, Varrock sewers
Appearance: Under-nourished

Dislikes: Archaeological digs

Height: 5ft 9in
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 16
Locations: The slums of Varrock,Brimhaven.
Appearance: Human
Way of Life: Less violent than the muggers, thieves will generally try and lighten your load without actually drawing any blood. They have been known to hang out with pirates, usually discussing their latest blag.
Likes: Wealthy tourists
Dislikes: Being found out. But if new players do want to teach them a lesson, be aware that they are stronger than their mugger friends


Height: 6 ft
Weight: 220 lbs
Varieties: Level 10
Locations: Thugs can be found in a variety of locations, and can be picked out by their loud bellowing and mistrust of strangers
Appearance: Human-
often quite scruffy
Way of Life: Aimless. Thugs aren't even interested in your money- they just want to pick a fight. And with their brains sufficiently marinated in alcohol, they usually manage to get one
Likes: Making connections with new people- using their fists
Dislikes: Whichever gnomeball team you happen to support


Height: 6 ft
Weight: 150 lbs
Varieties: Level 32

Level 27 (Black unicorn)
Locations: Unicorns like to wander around woodland, such as the area south of Varrock, and the woods south of Edgeville
Appearance: Like horses.
But with a horn
Way of Life: Unicorns are passive creatures, and it has long been assumed that they have magical qualities. There can be no doubt that they have a special aura, which has a soothing influence on anyone they encounter. Black unicorns don't seem to share all these qualities, and remain a mystery to those that have sighted them
Likes: The tranquility of the forest
Dislikes: Any form of violence

Height: 6 ft
Weight: 165 lbs
Varieties: Level 24
Locations: Varrock castle
Appearance: Muscular
Way of Life: These women have decided to walk away from the domestic role that their society imposes upon them. Donning heavy armour, they take a stand against an increasingly chaotic world
Likes: Wielding large weapons
Dislikes: Over-familiar men

  White Knight

Height: 5ft 11in
Weight: 195 lbs
Varieties: Level 36
Locations: The White Knights have a castle in Falador which they call home
Appearance: Shiny.
The White Knights never go out without buffing their armour first
Way of Life: The goody-two-shoes of Runescape. People may respect the White Knights, but nobody really likes them. Yes, they fight the good fight against evil, but do they have to be so mincingly polite?
Likes: The sense of satisfaction from a job well done
Dislikes: Dishonesty.
The White Knights believe that they have nothing if they don't have their honour

  White Wolf

Height: Up to 7ft long
Weight: 230 lbs
Varieties: Level 25
Level 38
Level 73 (Big Wolf)
Locations: In the pass of White Wolf Mountain
Appearance: Lean and hungry looking, these tenacious beasts must steal themselves against the cold mountain air
Way of Life: The wolves patrol the crucial pass in the north. Although of varying strengths, these aggressive animals can be relentless when pack hunting. Like a hazard of nature, white wolves essentially control this passage. So heed these words and pack plenty of provisions- or stay away from White Wolf Mountain
Likes: The recent rise in tourism through the mountain regions
Dislikes: Warmer weather, which can make them lethargic


Height: 5 ft 4in
Weight: 150 lbs
Varieties: Level 25
Locations: South Kharid, Draynor Manor
Appearance: Gnarled fingers and a hooked nose
Way of Life: Independent. Witches, although often considered evil, practise a craft which is in many way closer to the Druidic rituals than the minions of Zamorak. Shunned by a mistrustful society, however, these loners sometimes take to summoning up the forces of darkness against their enemies
Likes: Mixing things in their cauldron. It's all in the sauce
Dislikes: Most men. Some believe that the male obsession with a woman's appearance has isolated these old spinster women


Height: 5 ft 8 in
Weight: 160 lbs
Varieties: Level 9
Locations: The Wizard's Tower
Appearance: Human
Way of Life: Legendary. The wizards hold a special place in Runescape's history. But it was their ill-advised alliance with the Dark Wizards that plunged the land into chaos.
And many believe that their mastery of the rune no longer holds the power that it once did
Likes: A willing apprentice
Dislikes: The druids. The increasing scarcity of runestones has caused a growing sense of mistrust between these great practitioners of magical arts.
This is a rift which the forces of evil are only too eager to exploit

Height: 5 ft 6 in
Weight: 180 lbs
Varieties: Level 13
Level 18
Level 24
Level 25
Level 50
Level 65
Level 86
Level 88
Locations: Varrock sewers- although there are also said to be an infestation in various other undisclosed locations
Appearance: Mutilated pulsating masses of rotting flesh
Way of Life: Twisted by an insane blood lust, they crave the flesh of anyone who dares come near them. Often unarmed, it is somewhat amazing that these creatures who can barely walk continue to inspire so much terror
Likes: The taste of human blood
Dislikes: People who can run fast
