Parcels from the Hedge is a members-only event that first ran on 1 May 2018. It is hosted by Postie Pete and Parcel Pete who are located near the Burthorpe lodestone during the event. Players will receive Postie Pete's letter as well as a daily parcel in their inventory for 30 days starting from the first day they log in during the month of November. Ironman accounts are ineligible for this event, unless the account was created after the event started. Ironman accounts that are eligible still cannot obtain daily parcel rewards; only fan mail and unclaimed parcels can be obtained.
One of the following messages is seen when logging in during the event:

After the daily parcels had been claimed and the player still had some parcels left, the login message changed to:
Fan mail[edit | edit source]
Fan mail is obtained by opening other parcels. Opening fan mail will grant a postage stamp, which may be exchanged at Postie Pete's Post Office for parcels, and an additional reward of coins, a small prismatic lamp, a prismatic small fallen star, treasured fan mail, or a sack of fan mail.
Parcels[edit | edit source]
In addition to a daily parcel, parcels may also be found while skilling and also during combat. Opening a parcel will also provide a postage stamp, a piece of fan mail and an additional reward. It is possible to receive either a small, medium, large, or huge parcel. Postie Pete can be talked to if a player wants parcels delivered to the bank instead, using the "What delivery options are there?" option.
If you miss a daily parcel, you will not be able to reclaim it.
Lost property[edit | edit source]
After 5, 10, 15, and 20 daily parcels have been received, the player may claim a package of lost property at Postie Pete's Post Office, which rewards a variety of items including an aura refreshes, sign of life resets, Invention components, and deathtouched darts.
Claiming lost property does not deplete the players daily parcel tally. The rewards are cumulative and each can be claimed only once after it has been unlocked by collecting 5, 10, 15 or 20 daily parcels, respectively. They are delivered automatically with the daily parcel, and can also be claimed from the post office if this fails.

|Lost property (light)|
|Sealed clue scroll (easy)||1|
|Small protean pack||2|
|Lost property (heavy)|

Trivia[edit | edit source]
In the RuneScape Brazilian localisation, this event was named CarlEx. This is likely a portmandeau of Carlos, Postie Pete's first name in the localisation, and Sedex, Brazil's state-owned express mail delivery service. The event was likely renamed because there is no localised version of Postbag from the Hedge, rendering the English event's name reference meaningless to Portuguese audiences.
