Norse Code is a members-only music track that was released along with the Fremennik Isles and the respective quest on 6 February 2007. It uses 3/4 beat.

The track's name is a portmanteau of "Norse" (Scandinavian) and "Morse code" (a form of telecommunications).

In the actual track, a secret Morse code message is present. The high-pitched flute plays in Morse code. The short notes are the dits, and the long notes are the dahs.

The sequence of the Morse code is as follows:

Sequence Sounds Letter
• – • dit-dah-dit R
• • – dit-dit-dah U
– • dah-dit N
dit E
• • • dit-dit-dit S
– • – • dah-dit-dah-dit C
• – dit-dah A
• – – • dit-dah-dah-dit P
dit E

The full sequence spells out the letters for "RuneScape", although the timing between letters is incorrect (three dit intervals should be left between each letter). So the interpretation would be very different when the rules of deciphering Morse Code are strictly followed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mozzie, a main character in the TV series White Collar, mentions "RuneScape's hidden flute solo" in season two, episode 9, "Point Blank", while trying to solve a music box puzzle.
    • With the release of Violet is Blue Too, which features characters named for the main cast of White Collar, the show is so far the only piece of media to have referenced RuneScape, and vice versa.
  • A remix of this song is played by Bard Roberts and Bill Blakey.
  • Part of the song features a tune from the Yesteryear track.
