Welcome to the Old School Clan Quest recruitment thread!
Hello, Hola, Olá, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Ni Hao, Hallo, Privyet, Kon'nichiwa, and As-Salaam 'alaykum, Oldschoolers!
Welcome to the Recruitment Thread for the Questing Clan of Runescape’s Old School Guild (“Old School Clan Quest”)!
Clan Quest is a clan representing every nationality known to play RuneScape. All of us are united by our love of Quests and Lore. As a clan, we specialise and have a strong interest in completing every quest in game. Our members particularly enjoy helping others to achieve this goal through skilling and advice. We invite anyone, quester, adventurer, skiller, combatant to join our community. If this sounds like the clan for you, read on!
This thread will provide you with everything you need to know, from our history and clan purpose, to joining our community.
Clan Quest was created in November of 2009 by a bunch of questers. After inviting all the “Quest Noobs” they knew, they requested recognition from Jagex and were formally recognized in the Clan Database on December 8th, 2009. Hereafter, all new recruits are called noobs to this day.
Clan Quest was featured in the Clan Blog (By Mod Timbo) August 4th, 2010, and featured again during the “Clan Celebration Month” of March, 2011. With the creation of our own website and the continued recognition from Jagex and the game community, Clan Quest has steadily increased in popularity. For Runefest in 2017 and 2018, we had the most members present of any clan.
Since our time in Old School, our numbers have grown sizeably, and our members have collectively completed hundreds of quests. Those of us who came from RS3 love the ability to replay old quests (or the ability to play completely different quests). Many of our members have never played RS3, and they just like learning the story of the game, who wouldn't?
We're hoping to grow to a roster of 100 people by the end of the year. We're hoping to help at least 30 people obtain their quest capes. We need you! Care to join us?
Ever been called a noob? Fear not, for this is no bad thing! In our clan, it’s considered a term of endearment, with many of our members incorporating the word ‘noob’ into their nicknames. Everybody starts out inexperienced, and we encourage our members to learn and grow together. Noobs need XP too! We believe you never stop learning, and even the most experienced members amongst us still learn new things every single day. Work for your goals, help your clanmates and strive for a better community, for being an accomplished noob, for us, is the most important aspect of a Clan Quest member.
There has been much discussion about the value of questing compared to other game content. In our minds there is no contest. The fundamental gameplay in Runescape is adventuring, exploring the lore, and fighting for good (or evil). This - the main idea and objective of the game - finds its primary outlet in quests. Everything else - all the skilling and training - is there only for the adventurer to train to the level of being able to successfully live through the adventures. Skilling is practice - the quests are the real RuneScape tests.
A quester must have ingenuity, determination and imagination in order to complete a quest. Quests open up entire areas, new armour and abilities that expand the depth and breadth of the game. Questers can ride eagles, use fairy rings, and even manage their own kingdoms.
With new quests being added and the minimum skill levels required to complete them constantly rising, Clan Quest is here to help you get that cape. The Quest Point Cape will never go out of fashion!
And of course, if you fancy doing other things, there will always be a place for you. Although not official groups of the clan anymore, we've had recruitment, events and pvm teams for the longest of times. You can always come with new ideas and make your own sub-groups or join existing ones!
To ensure that everyone in the channel has the most fun, certain rules are in place to protect members and visitors to our clan. All participants are expected to follow our clan's rules. All members of the clan are assumed to have read and agreed with the rules. Failure to adhere to these rules can result in consequences varying in severity.

iiDefend (Head of Guild Council). [Discord: IIDefend/XconBrain#1209]
Prinessi (Head of Honor Council). [Discord: Prinessi#1066]
(Technically Clan Quest has a third set of councilors called the Clan Council who manage the administration of Clan Quest's presence in all the different games (ie. OSRS, RS3, and other games). They don't have any authority within OSRS and they're rank isn't observed in game. They might be a guild councilor, but sometimes they don't have any special recognition, and you might not even know they hold that office.)
