Festival of the Dead
The Festival of the Dead is a holiday event, introduced to Gielinor on October 2nd, 2012 by shunned Saradominist priest, Father Joakim.
Father Joakim recently moved from Ardougne after members from his order all but expelled him from the church of Saradomin. He has some ideas that have turned them away from him and possibly turned a few others over in their graves. Whilst in Ardougne, he found that some people celebrate the lives of their dead, rather than mourn their passing. At first he rejected the idea and tried to convince those people otherwise. But soon the idea grew on him and he began to research these customs. What he discovered and later shared with his fellow priests was not well received.
There are five deceased to choose from to help Father Joakim celebrate the lives of the Zamorakian Cultists, the Void Knights, the Drunken Dwarf, the Fight Pit Warriors, and Duradel. Each celebration is started individually by first speaking to Father Joakim regarding the deceased. When you've obtained the item that belonged to the deceased, you will need to use three soft clay to make into clay skulls, and take some flowers of the dead from the crate besides Joakim. Click on the coffin besides Father Joakim to decorate it (he will paint the clay skulls for you), then watch the celebration begin!
When you've completed a ceremony for the first time, you will be handsomely rewarded with a skull mask.
In addition to this festive mask, you'll also receive a prayer XP bonus, which will give you double the experience until you've used up your reward. You may gain a maximum of 251,000 bonus prayer XP when you've completed all five celebrations.
You will gain double prayer XP with this bonus when:
