A clue scroll (beginner) is a valuable random drop from a large variety of lower-levelled monsters. Clue scrolls are the start of a Treasure Trail - a treasure hunt that sends players hunting all around RuneScape. At the end of the hunt players receive a reward of items randomly selected from a specific list, possibly including very rare and very valuable items. All of the rewards for beginner clue scrolls are free-to-play items.
For a guide on how to complete a clue scroll, see Treasure Trails Guide.
Beginner clue scrolls are the easiest to obtain and complete, and offer lower rewards in return. Additionally, beginner clue scrolls are the only level of clue scrolls that can be obtained by free-to-play players.
