The Eastern Lands or Eastern Realms are a region said to exist in the far east of Gielinor, across the sea from Morytania. They are currently inaccessible, but some believe they will be added in the future.
Very little is known of the Eastern Lands, and the information that is known greatly varies in nature. Only a handful of characters mention it, leading some to question its very existence. However, it seems that it will be based on medieval Asia.
According to the Mysterious Old Man, the people of the Eastern Lands are famed for their complex toys and puzzles. While exploring it, the Mysterious Old Man happened upon a strange box, which he kept with him. He soon discovered, though, that it magically multiplied constantly, so now he gives them away.
The ghosts of Port Phasmatys are known to trade with the Eastern Lands, although their trade has diminished greatly since their town was conquered by Necrovarus, who is said to have been born there. Ak-Haranu, a trader found in the port's docks, also claims to have come from the Eastern Lands. Ak-Haranu appears to wield a katana, and many players believe he is a samurai of some sort.
Kamfreena, located in the top of the Warriors' Guild, says that Harrallak Menarous, the owner of the guild, went on an expedition to the Far Eastern Lands and brought along with him the Cyclopes, often killed for the Rune defender.
The Old crone, in her house between the Slayer tower and Fenkenstrain's castle, says: "I cannot read the strange letters of the eastern lands", so most likely the letters are, just like in some real world Asian lands, other than the letters used in Europe and America.
In an issue of Postbag from the Hedge, Reldo of Varrock expresses his beliefs that the Eastern Lands are a myth. Many far-fetched tales surround them, leading him to believe they are merely the subject of children's tales. One text on the Eastern Lands describes 'Grate fiery beastes enwrapt in poisons' and 'one-legged, one-eyed men of lymestone.' This leads him to believe that, if they are real, they are very far from Morytania, far beyond Dragontooth Island.

- One could speculate that part of the Eastern Lands may be inhabited by humans similar in dress and culture to those of Morytania (something quite similar to Russian, Ukrainian, and Polish culture of the real world). This speculation has not been confirmed my Jagex and should not be treated as fact.
- On 27 June 2010, Mod Ajd confirmed that the 'Lands of the East' were still in development, with no estimated release date.
