"The night is dark, and full of terrors" they say, but with today's update the whole of Gielinor will be lighting up; that's right, line firemaking is back - and it's going to be a scorcher!
Char has been feeling a little bit lonely, and in a spark
of inspiration she decided to open up her training cave full time - so now you can fire, at will
. You heard that right, the training cave is no longer a weekly Distraction and Diversion and it's open all day every day!
In quick, five-minute sessions, you can light fires in the same shapes as before - as many times as you want. During your encounter with Char, there is a chance that you will receive a brand-new Pitch Can - that makes it faster and easier for good old fashioned firemaking. The Pitch Can has 2000 charges and is tradable in its full and its empty state; just be careful, it's hot hot hot!
The Pitch Can
speeds up creating fires, but it doesn't stop there - it also speeds up bonfire burning too! At level 70 Firemaking,
you'll naturally be able to create fires slightly faster than before.
To refill the Pitch Can
: all you need to do is return to Chars' Pit
and take part in her training activity. You'll even have a chance to get the Pitch Can as you finish the training challenge - so it's useful to know that the more symbols you make, the better chance to be awarded the Can!Twice Burnt:
What's that behind you? Is it a bird, is it a plane? Nope - it's a ninja, and they've been feeding the flames.Mod Maylea
has played through the Firemakers Curse
and has rejigged some of the quest to make it freer flowing and generally friendlier to new users.

If you haven't already, be sure to look at the lores & histories story: Twice Burnt,
giving some extra backstory on the quest. This incredible piece of lore was written all the way back in 2012, by our favourite lore hound Mod Osbourne!And on that farm...
Mod Rowley and Mod Raven have a farm, E I E I O; and on that farm, they had a contest E I E I O.
As you may have seen, we hosted the competition with the intention to see what kind of ideas you guys could come up with - and you're all an incredibly creative bunch! It wasn't a contest of drawing skills, but a contest to inspire us. however, we all decided that one entry was so good - and full of opportunities, so we decided to add it to the farm!
A huge congratulations to the winner Aranha
with their suggestion of Mushroom People!
