Deadman Mode is a unique and punishing game mode for Old School RuneScape. With an emphasis on survival in an unforgiving player-vs-player environment, it's the ultimate in competitive gaming for Old School RuneScape. What differentiates Deadman Mode from ordinary Old School RuneScape is the raft of changes to content designed to make it as brutal and fiercely-contested as possible.

Each year we host four Deadman Seasons which act as qualifiers for the four Deadman Finals which follow their respective Season. On a Season-to-Season basis we make content changes and balancing tweaks with certain content restricted or enabled based on data analysis and player feedback. A Permanent Deadman Mode server runs seperately all year round on World 345. Changes made to the Seasons and Finals are sometimes implemented in the Permanent server.

PvP combat everywhere. Accelerated XP rates. Unique PK skull mechanics. XP and item loss on death.
All of these make Deadman a truly unique and competitive experience. Visit the pages below to view the content that's specific to each Deadman server (whether Season/Tournament/Permanent).
