The starting horn is an item sold by Faruq in Al Kharid. Their purpose is to make player created games easier. When the horn is used, the Master of Races imp will appear and freeze all movement from nearby players wearing Racing boots. He will then announce "Ready! Set! Go!" before allowing movement once again. Some groups are using it as a battle horn by not wearing racing boots and activating it. Before the Free Trade update it was even used in revenant hunting to signal other players that a revenant is nearby.

On 29 September 2014, the Master of Races was changed to appear in a fixed position that was north of the person using the horn. This was done to prevent a type of player-run game of chance, which are against the rules, where players would bet on which direction the imp would appear in. On 8 December 2014, the horn was removed from the game altogether.
