As players milled around, presumably gossiping about who was making out with who before the cops busted it up, the players who'd been in the party's combat ring noticed something: They could still kill people, even if they weren't at a combat location or playing a minigame. They were the first and only people who to have this ability in the history of RuneScape. Of course, making use of the power would require them to slaughter innocent fellow players who had put hours into the online lives they'd be ending.

They immediately began killing bystanders. The evening quickly went from a demonstration of online gaming goodwill to a vivid illustration of why Earth can't have superheroes. Random people were gifted with amazing new powers and used them to tear through the world like innocence-fueled combine harvesters. Their victims couldn't fight back even when attacked, and within minutes, the supervillains embodied the deadly sins of rage, pride, greed, and douchebaggery. Some slaughtered low-level players en masse just to get the biggest body count, while others hunted suddenly defenseless high-level players to steal valuable items. The devil signed human nature by having this happen on 6/6/06.
