This was a product design for a prop inspired by an in-game concept of Runescape. The Stone of Jas, also referred to as the Fist of Guthix, the Eye of Saradomin, The Catalyst and the Cabbage of a Thousand Truths, is from the long-running MMORPG Runescape. It is said to hold one of the universe’s oldest and greatest powers, touching the stone can unlock some of this power. It is very important to the game. I designed this at Event Prop Hire for Jagex as part of their yearly event called Runefest which celebrates the game and lets players live and breathe Runescape in the real world. This is an exciting event that I have worked on for the past 6 years, helping Event Prop Hire create immersive and compelling game inspired environments with various prop, theming and bespoke build designs.
This was a challenging but very exciting bespoke prop design. It was very important to me to stay true to the concept, staying relative to how the stone is portrayed in the game. This was a very successful build and a jewel of the event with the masses of fans wanting a picture with legendary stone. I designed the prop so that the cracks between the plates on the stone could glow various colours via a battery-operated light. This took the build to that next level as it emitted a neon style glow, giving it that mystical powerful look that the prop deserved.
