Once Upon a Time in Gielinor is a novice quest released as part of RuneScape's 20th Anniversary celebrations. Initially the first three subquests were released individually as miniquests, but once the finale was released on 22 November 2021 they were combined into a four-part special quest.

Celebration rings out from the Blue Moon Inn, a gathering to honour the tales of The World Guardian led by the ever faithful groupie of Sliske, Relomia, Emissary of Sliske. She offers the hero a special hat and brew of her own creation for this special occasion, a toast later she begins her tales, as she personally recounts her adventures saving those across Gielinor. Chopping the head of the three headed Green Dragon, using Darklight to banish Delrith and finally the time she staked Count Draynor with an iron flock. The player quickly comes to understand that the two of you must have switched personalities, as everyone in the bar take Relomia to be the player, they recount the true events and the other towns people agree, Relomia gets angry and attacks the player sending them to Death who greets them assuming them to be her. You convince Death of your true identity and work with Closure to break the spell that's been created. Using a contract and glamour from Closure, you convince Relomia to sign the contract breaking the illusion, angry at Sliske leaving her alone and the player foiling this plan she takes off, mentioning that this was not her only plan and has more for the future.

Closure in his office tells the player that Relomia has recently visited. During that visit she stole and vandalised a number of biographies. Due to the nature of Closure's biographies these vandalisms end up having real consequences to the characters involved (Ava, Merlin, and Ozan). The player is tasked to correct these vandalisms by visiting instances of interactions between the player and the characters involved, one each per character.

With all her interfering, Closure has started taking interest in Relomia's story to better understand her. But upon looking into it, he can't help but feel sorry for her. The player's life of questing and being a hero is all Relomia ever wanted. To make amends, the player, with the help of Closure and Death, creates a quest for her to complete, letting Relomia be the hero for once.

Just when Closure wants to tell the player about their story, they get interrupted by Relomia from the future who died. The player is asked to help Relomia solve the reasons why she died in three separate memories. The memories involve aiding three teams in completing their missions. After doing so the player completes this subquest and subsequently the entire quest by speaking with Closure once more.
