A Fremennik warrior.

The Fremennik are a group of barbarians who live in the Fremennik Province and some islands in northern RuneScape.

They are in a war with the magical Moon Clan of Lunar Isle, because of their dislike of Magic and all who use it. The Fremennik do not approve of the crafting of Rune stones, and think that humans should only use the runes they were given by the gods. The hatred between the two clans is lessened during the Lunar Diplomacy Quest.

Players become an honorary Fremennik after having completed the Fremennik Trials Quest. Then upon completion of the trials, the player is given a Fremennik name (however if the player has a Ring of charos (a) they may change their name by speaking to Brundt the Chieftain). Players may speak with the villagers and find out a lot more about them. The purchase and wearing of fremennik armour is also made available after the trials.

The Mountain Tribe, a formerly nomadic group of barbarians, originally were part of the Fremennik also (as were the Moon Clan), until a dispute tore them apart.

The Fremennik are probably based on the old Norse vikings. Their name is probably based on the Fremen people in Frank Hebert's Dune series of books. The afterlife of the Fremennik is shown during Blood Runs Deep and seems to be a reference to Valhalla, the Viking afterlife.

History

The main Fremennik settlement of Rellekka.

The Fremennik once were a nomadic tribe. They lived a simple life, hunting the local animals, fishing, and travelling throughout the Fremennik Province so as not to exhaust the land's rich resources.

Eventually, they abandoned their nomadic way of life, creating the village of Rellekka in the Fourth Age. While this greatly improved life for most Fremennik, some disagreed with this way of living. Many left the tribe, grouping together to form the Mountain Tribe. This angered the Fremenniks, and the two tribes were somewhat bitter towards each other ever since, until the player fixes the relation up a bit during the Mountain Daughter quest .

Some years after, the Fremenniks discovered a rock that was revealed to be Rune Essence. This caused a great struggle within the tribe; some believed the Fremenniks could use the magics of the essence to defend themselves from the races that were constantly seeking to conquer their land. Others believed that the rock was not to be used by mortals, and that the gods would destroy them if they used it. The tension grew until many more Fremenniks departed for Lunar Isle, where they would form the Moon Clan.

Taking advantage of the Fremennik's temporary weakness in numbers and absence of awareness, the Mountain Tribe attacked the village of Rellekka and stole the rune essence rock which they believed to be sacred, taking it back to their encampment. The two tribes avoided contact from that point on, until the Mountain Daughter quest.
