Jagex made the OSRS gold announcement in which it unveiled new content for Old School RuneScape in addition to improvements made to the modern mobile version of its MMO.
Runescape developer Jagex released notes that were patched this Monday highlighting a heap of changes. In this"Diversity Improvements" section Jagex clarifies they will be removing the word"Gypsy" out of Runescape game because it"may be interpreted as a racial slur." They're also changing NPC titles in Karamja to give them"more appropriate titles."
Other NPCs in the Kharidian Desert"had their title changed from'Ali' to reflect the diverse selection of names we see in actual life." They also detailed that"some dialogue in the Kindred Spirits quest has been altered to eliminate unintended offense." Jagex explains the reason behind these changes would be to do"a better job of boosting diversity in game."
While Jagex did not detail what the adjustments to the NPC names are, Reddit consumer VapeNationKleiner detailed that they changed'A primitive warrior' to'A warrior' Other modifications include'Jungle savage' into'Jungle dweller,' and'An competitive native of the Kharazi Jungle' into'A native of the Kharazi jungle.'
They also shifted a number of citizens who were named Ali, as noted in the modifications. This change goes against their recognized canon. The citizens changed their names in order to attempt to inherit the fortune of their mayor of Buy Rs gold Pollnivneach. Pollniveach's mayor left his fortune to a person named'Ali.' However, no one claimed the luck. Since the fortune was not claimed by any one, their names legally changed to Ali. In fact, it would become tradition in Pollniveach to name their children Ali.
