It’s probably the strongest reward to date for anyone involved with clans

Far away on distant icebergs, the penguins are still plotting how to enslave those pesky humans. Since the untimely disappearance of Larry – last seen being stuffed inside a giant submarine – the outlook has seemed pretty bleak for those hell-bent on stopping their evil flippers. However, all is not lost! In the latest expansion to the Penguin storyline, you’ll be asked to infiltrate a POW camp (Prisoner of Walrus) as you spy on the latest groups of marine life to muscle in on the act: namely the seals, and a rather grumpy walrus, complete with monocle and superiority complex. We’ve got plenty of puzzles, wise-cracking polar bears and some of our favourite characters all wrapped up in a fantastically fishy bundle, as well as a crazy version of a classic board game: Battlefish.

You’ll need 65 Fishing, 56 Crafting, 50 Construction and 50 Thieving to tackle this tale, but those that do will find a healthy horde of rewards: XP, a new circus event, costumes for your clockwork penguin and few hidden rewards will be there for you to seek out. So if you’re up for a little jailhouse rock…slide on over to my plaice! Clan Avatar (members-only clan update) While it’s great for clans to own and customise their own citadels, we’ve been thinking for a while that they need more presence when they are roaming around the normal game world. And boy, have the new clan avatars got presence!

Built and fully customised by you and your clan, each avatar (which is almost like a clan pet) is a floating colossus of elemental forces, and can provide a series of boosts, buffs and protections to you and your clan mates. It’s probably the strongest reward to date for anyone involved with clans, and it certainly looks the part. Each boost will need to be chosen by a clan member with the necessary permissions, and they influence combat, resource gathering and XP gain for any qualifying clan member who’s in range of the avatar. To qualify, you’ll need to collect resource items called anagogic orts, which can be obtained through citadel or surface skilling, as well as surface-world combat
