The fourth wall is the imaginary "wall" at the front of the stage in a traditional three-walled box set in a theatre, through which the audience sees the action of the play. In Gielinor, speaking directly to or otherwise acknowledging the player or real world can be referred to as "breaking the fourth wall" as it deconstructs the boundaries of RuneScape's game world.
