Santa Claus is coming to town! Or at least he would
be, if anyone could find him. That's where you come in
.Introducing this year's Christmas quest: The G-Nome Project
. Remember those pieces of disassembled clockwork gnome you were gathering up in November? Now that Santa's favourite toy is back in one piece, Big-beard's decided to give him the best gift of all - the gift of life - and turn him into a real boy!
That's where things went awry. Something to do with the Queen Black Dragon and just a pinch of flawed advice. Head over to Varrock and chat to the Queen of Snow
; she can fill in the details.
Long story short: Gielinor needs an adventurer. Will you save Christmas
