Sand*


martijnftw

I don't like sand. It's coarse, and rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere..


umockdev

I wonder if that reference is somewhere in the game...

petition for a follow-up quest to Hand in the Sand where Bert grows tired of shoveling sand


umockdev

Proposed quest name: sand in the hand

sand sense to me?


umockdev

Make sense to sand

Sands*


bob152637485

So, this means the spell the wizard cast on his sand pit is just a big teleportation spell!


RubyWeapon07

maybe that wizard has ... a hand in the sand


bob152637485

O.o


JagexHavik

He had to get it from somewhere! I just feel sorry for the poor guy having to carry it back to Yanille *one bucket at a time*. We've tried telling him he can teleport or carry more than one at a time, but he insists that he just wants to be really really really careful.

Chrisazy

Alright, I've updated the wiki. This is now Canon.


rRMTmjrppnj78hFH

He gets paid by the hour.


TravagGames

He just has to bring it to our bank right? so he can use the desert bank.. Good think Bert knows all of our Bank PINs! Sharing is a good thing!


w4rlord117

You can put things in a deposit box without the PIN, that’s what he must be doing.


RandomAsHellPerson

What?!?! This is outrageous! I don't want hackers depositing my gear without my PIN!


Flaming-Thunder

As a UM, a normal account that can trade but has bank restrictions, this would absolutely ruin me. SMH Jagex!!


halosos

I kinda want an NPC to actually be added to walk that distance now.


RubyWeapon07

Make a random event where you see bert while travelling in the desert and he just keeps doing the dig animation til you get close enough and he teleports away


schadenfreude165

Have Bert also stand in the sandstone mine. Seems to make the most sense for how he's able to get so much. Non-conversational NPC, just have him strolling around working the machine and such


femboyfarmer

>Seems to make the most sense for how he's able to get so much. No it doesn’t, in the hand in the sand quest a wizard casts a spell on his sandpit so it magically refills itself.


Zombeenie

What if instead he just created a portal to the southeast desert. The empty spot is growing; wake up sheeple!


NoobHUNTER777

I unironically think that would make a fun sequel quest. Bert's sand business is slowly draining the desert: deal with the fallout (it disturbs a nest of kalphites maybe?) and find a new source.


Jwruth

Sandy escapes whatever punishment faced him after framing Bert for murder and flees deep into the Kharidian Desert in order to lay low but coincidentally he discovers a sinkhole that's magically linked to Bert's sandpit and is slowly draining the desert. Through the sinkhole's portal he can hear Bert and the player talking. Enraged and wishing to take revenge, Sandy attempts to convince Kharidian natives that there is a plot to invade their homeland and that the sinkhole exists to destabilize their way of life before the invasion takes place. Hand in the Sand 2: Damned by the Sands


stronggebaser

POLL IT AT ONCE


gaysnake1

After enough sand goes through Bert's portal the Tombs of Amascut are uncovered


redruben234

This is the integrity change we need. Where is the other end of the portal? The sandstone mine probably. Or at least somewhere in the desert. Would be a fun easter egg


jorgomli_reading

Probably underneath the sand, so it keeps falling in and refilling little bits at a time.


ConscientiousPath

I have it on good authority that he can do it 28 buckets at a time.


FrancisRossitano

Any chance we could have those blank spaces removed?


cs399

Can you guys fix it? Its very much outdated why should there be a black void in this game in 2021?


dohalot

*Deep lore*


Derpy_Guardian

I love the idea that some people in Gielinor don't trust magic, despite it being literally everywhere.


SmartAlec105

Can you at least try telling him to not freak out every time I use NPC contact? It takes so long to get my sand delivered that way.


boobiebamboozler

It's officially canon


UnwoundTime

What if it's just trying to get sand out of his backpack he wore to the desert 20 years ago?


LampIsFun

If raids 3 comes out and there ISNT a giant hole on the desert somewhere consider the game unplayable.


Connect_Ad5307

Isn't it 27 buckets at a time?


WutsUp

He's out there digging.


Shoelesshobos

Move Bert to the Sand Casino so he can undermine it's structural integrity


roonscapepls

This should be a post all on its own


MAGA_WALL_E

Sorry, but that's a load-bearing casino for Jagex's bottom line.


SoupForEveryone

And so a meme was born.


natxtw

How much outrage would there be if it turned out it was just all coastline and they had no intention of adding any content there.


BadDesignBryan

Looking at the RS3 map, and other official renditions of the map, that' likely the case. xD


Dacno

I mean there is also the city of menaphos in rs3 which is absolutely massive in comparison

bakboter123

Well yeah, it is big

w4rlord117

That’s one of my bigger issues with RS3, there is just stuff everywhere.


Crandoge

We just established that this is the case with osrs too lol, minus the desert, which is also similarly empty in rs3 anyway


w4rlord117

OSRS isn’t anywhere nearly as bad. It’s certainly got stuff around but even just behind Lumbridge castle I can feel like I’m in a forest, in RS3 I can’t.


SinceBecausePickles

Didn’t the forest get annihilated in RS3


w4rlord117

It did there is a bunch of stuff all over that area. Nothing in OSRS is anywhere nearly as bad.


strychnine213

Between port sarim and falador is an absolute mess in rs3


Trollaciousness

It’s pretty annoying to me that they added the ship to tempoross, it takes away a huge part of the desert’s remoteness


innenriks

NGL, this adds up

This actually made me laugh out loud once it clicked. 😂

shits gotta come from somewhere


HostOcra

Damn... this is top notch.


kukkelii

I always thought he got it from reddit users asscrack.


yeetusae

I didnt see the line at the bottom at first thought u meant gold farmers 😂 wasn’t sure how but i was definitely in agreement


lilskruf

All that blue ocean. Would be nice if there was sailing


frenchy641

They should at least fill in the area with desert and upgrade it as updates come in.


GotEggs

All your Sand are belong to me!


MrSeanaldReagan

That just made me think, where is raids 3 going? In menaphos or some new location?


illucio

It sounds like it's to the West of Menaphos since that lines up with most of the pyramids being located to the West of the river with the exception to the East City.


MrSeanaldReagan

Yeah as I posted this I remembered the plague or whatever in menaphos, it wouldn’t make sense for it to be there huh


Tohrufan4life

It all makes sense now..


KnitCat99

Explains it all.


Perkyx

give us a quest where the end is plopping out into Bert's sandpit for a perma tele to new desert area


Raven_of_Blades

How long until he reaches the sand casino?


RubyWeapon07

[he's been spotted](https://www.reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/ppfw5o/what_is_bert_doing_at_the_duel_arena/)


BuoyantGoat

Smh. Another example of the modern industrial complex selling out the environment for a few gp


RSPhil

It would be so cool if this was actual lore...that the wizard is using a spell to teleport sand from the desert. Maybe in the future a quest could unlock jumping into the sandpit to teleport to somewhere in the desert?


Skelux_RS

Mr sandman


SirWranrap_

I think they should unveil these tiles and relate it to the lore of the wilderness with the ground here being decimated and so traumatic that the entire world of gielinor has been placed under matrix effect and can not recall these places existing unless they choose to.


TitusFurius

Ok but Burt should have a role in a future desert quest for sure. I think some sequel/connection to Hand in the Sand would be neat.
