Jatizso (pronounced "Yah-tizz-so"[1]) is one of the islands which make up the Fremennik Isles. It is ruled over by King Gjuki Sorvott IV, aided by his chancellor, Thorkel Silkbeard. Jatizso is a dull, grey island, whose population is heavily taxed and seems generally unhappy.

Locals will address players by their Fremennik name gained during The Fremennik Trials.

History[edit | edit source]

Symbol of Jatizso.

Four generations ago, a Fremennik king banished his two youngest sons, Neitiznot and Jatizso, for their often frustrating rivalry between each other. Shortly after their banishment, they stumbled upon two neighbouring islands north-west of Rellekka. Jatizso chose the island to the east and named its community after himself. To this day, Jatizso's descendants still have a fierce rivalry with the citizens of Neitiznot.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

The only way of getting to Jatizso itself is by boat from the north-eastern most Rellekka dock. Players must have started The Fremennik Isles quest to travel to the island. Jatizso can be walked to from its sister island, Neitiznot. However, due to the dangerous ice trolls in the north, it is safer and faster to take the boat to the mainland and then back again. Methods of transport include:

Points of interest[edit | edit source]

Dock

Jatizso's economy revolves around Mining, Smithing, Fishing and Cooking as its local resources are mainly ores and fish. The island has a number of resources and facilities useful to players.

Dock[edit | edit source]

The dock is the first place players arrive upon visiting the Fremennik Isles. Mord Gunnars is here to which players may speak to and head back to Rellekka on the Fremennik boat. There are also a few cage/harpoon and net/harpoon fishing spots that are relatively close to a bank.

Mines

Mines[edit | edit source]

Main article: Jatizso dungeon mine

There are mines below the city which contain many adamant, mithril, tin and coal ore rocks.

Obelisk[edit | edit source]

A small obelisk for recharging Summoning points is located at the city gates to the south.

Bank

Bank[edit | edit source]

The Bank of RuneScape is right near the southern city gates. Unlike most other banks, it contains no booths, bank tables or chests for bankers to store items in. The only banker is named Magnus Gram. There is an ore table and crate in the bank, suggesting ore examining, studying and working is done in the bank. The bank was not required to pay the King's window tax during The Fremennik Isles.

Anvils[edit | edit source]

There are two anvils in two different buildings, just near the city's western gates. It is fairly close to a bank.

King's Hall

Jatizso Hall[edit | edit source]

Jatizso Hall is the current location of King Gjuki Sorvott IV. The player visits the hall constantly during The Fremennik Isles quest. It contains elaborate tiled flooring with the Jatizso crest, and a large throne for the king. There is also a chest behind the King's throne where the player receives the jester costume during The Fremennik Isles quest.

Locked building[edit | edit source]

Just north of the bank is a small building with a locked door. As of yet, it has no purpose. It contains a bed, shelf and table with a bright beam of light shining through the window. It may be set aside for a future quest or event. Oddly enough, during The Fremennik Isles, the King did not ask to have this building taxed for having a total of 6 windows, adding up to a total of 6000 coins.

Guard tower[edit | edit source]

The guards constantly yell at each other

In the westernmost tip of the island is the stone guard tower. A guard stands on duty and yells insults at the guard tower in the opposite island. When asked what he is doing, the guard explains he has been ordered by the King to shout insults at Neitiznot. The player has the option to Watch-shouting which is a Fremennik Province task.

Stores[edit | edit source]

Jatizso contains 6 shops, selling various speciality goods.

It can only be accessed by paying the shop owner's taxes for her during or after The Fremennik Isles quest.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Jatizso is similar to "Ja 't is zo," which is Dutch for "Yes it's true," while Neitiznot is similar to "Nee 't is niet," which is Dutch for "No it's not."
    • Similarly, the pronunciation of Jatizso sounds like "Ya, 'tis so," while the pronunciation of Neitiznot sounds like "Nay, 'tis not."[1] Both of these are likely a nod to the two islands' constant bickering with each other.
  • While watching the shouting from the watch towers one of the guards will eventually say "Your mother was a hamster!" and is met with the reply "And your father smelt of elderberries!". This is homage to the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail where King Arthur is being insulted by a French guard who says both lines.
  • Some of the guards fighting the ice trolls to the north of Jatizso incorrectly have the dialogue of the guards guarding the gates.
  • The beams of light in houses that have windows seem to point to the east. This suggests that the "sun" lays to the west.
