Rimmington is a small town that is located in the south-west of Asgarnia. Being a small town on the edge of the boundaries of free worlds, very few free players are aware of its location. Likewise, very few players express a desire to visit the town due to the far distance Rimmington is from any other human settlement. Its most notable features are its mine (a source of iron, gold, clay, copper and tin) and the portal to player-owned houses. Players are required to visit the area while completing the Dragon Slayer quest as Melzar's Maze is located on the north-west boundary of the town.
Rimmington can be entered by walking south from Falador and from walking west from Port Sarim. Members can teleport to their house if they own one in Rimmington as well. Recently (around mid 2007) players decided it was a good location for house parties. Since than the town of Rimmington world 31 is one of the top five most player invested places on runescape, also for it being so small. When world 2 Falador fell and Falador was of no use becoming a ghost town many people explored the Asgarnia looking for a new place for fun. They found world 31, Rimmington to be the perfect place. Rimmington is number four on the list of top five densist places(in cities not at places like clan wars arena) in runescape according to jagex following the Grand Exchange world 2, Varrock world 1, and Lumbridge world 1 and 3. The fifth most dense is considered to be in anyworld in the fishing town of Catherby. Because of Rimmington the Grand Exchange, outside of Varrock in world 31 is becoming increasinly more popular for random item trading and item lending. Also a group of people in the player 'lol' 's clan chat are known for working in the cooking guide world 31 making breads, and pies to help themselves merchant and manipulate the prices though this is unverified.
EVENTS TO NOTE:
Rimmington is also known widely to old players as the epicenter of the 'Falador Massacre' which occurred on 6 June 2006(for most time periods). A player glitched in a house in the house portal in Rimmington making him able to attack other players outside the house portal. Most of the killing took place in Falador and on the road from Falador to Edgeville however, regardless the glitch still was created in Rimmington. There were a few killings in Rimmington & the peninsula of Mudskipper's Point but they are said to be performed by other players not linked to the main 'massacre's mob'.
Not much is known about Rimmington's history, however it may have been settled by Crandorians after Elvarg attacked the once thriving community of Crandor Isle. The following quote is the only known proof of this possible historical colonization:
|“||Thirty years ago, Crandor was a thriving community with a great tradition of mages and adventurers. Many Crandorians even earned the right to be part of the Champions' Guild! One of their adventurers went too far, however. He descended into the volcano in the centre of Crandor and woke the dragon Elvarg. He must have fought valiantly against the dragon because they say that, to this day, she has a scar down her side, but the dragon still won the fight. She emerged and laid waste to the whole of Crandor with her fire breath! Some refugees managed to escape in fishing boats. They landed on the coast, north of Rimmington, and set up camp but the dragon followed them and burned the camp to the ground. Out of all the people of Crandor there were only three survivors: a trio of wizards who used magic to escape. Their names were Thalzar, Lozar and Melzar.||”|
It is not certain if the "camp north of Rimmington" means a camp that ended up being the town of Rimmington, or if Rimmington existed before the Crandorians made camp. The fact that the camp was destroyed may suggest either the camp really wasn't Rimmington, that the remains of the camp were the foundation of the present day Rimmington, or if the survivors established Rimmington after the camp was burned.
Rimmington's place in RuneScape is very limited. Besides the startpoint of two quests and an area used in many quests, the political, economic, and demographic relationship of Rimmington to the rest of Gielinor is vitually non-significant. It has no political leader(s), no solid trade, and a very low population. Fairly abundant willow trees, a mine, and several pieces of snape grass attracts some skillers and workers, but other than that, Rimmington is virtually unknown to many players.
Until the balanced trade update, some players held drop parties here or re-union parties. Players preferred to hold drop parties here because unwanted guests didn't usually come, unlike today, where a Falador party drop attracts hundreds of people.
The following important Non-Player Characters reside inside or near Rimmington:
The general store () has two floors. On the ground floor is the shop keeper and the shop assistant. The store rarely has anything of value in it, mainly willow logs and low level items. Since Rimmington is so far away from a bank, players rarely sell items to the store. There is nothing other than decorations on the first floor.
Players can purchase the following items:
Players can purchase steel arrows, mithril arrows, adamant arrows, oak shortbows, oak longbows, willow shortbows, willow longbows, maple shortbows, and maple longbows from him, however he does not sell bronze arrows because they spawn reasonably fast nearby.
