Choto 3000, or Choto, is a Clan Quest Moderator, current Head of the Pigeon Council, Chess Guild Councilor and RuneScape Guild Councillor; former Content Editor, Head of the Hoodian Council, Head of the Old School Guild Council and RuneScape Honor Councillor. He joined the clan in June 2015, after being invited by Miss Alaska, although he became fairly active in 2016. The name "Choto 3000" stands for something broken or of bad quality, because the account's sole purpose was to beg for money in the Grand Exchange of RuneScape. For the same reason, he is always seen wearing full Bronze equipment and an untrimmed Smithing cape.

One of his proudest achievements is having completed Cook's Assistant. Not once, or twice, but 12 times, on different accounts and different times, with ironmen, skillers, oldschool and classic accounts.

RuneScape History

The "beg"inning

A long-time friend was the player who introduced Choto to the game, in mid 2007. RuneScape had grown in popularity in South America since mid 2006. His first account was named Wiliamwalace, as he had been playing Age of Empires II for too long. At that time, rumour had it that if you died 3 times in-game, your account would be deleted. That's why, after being killed by a Higwayman, that account was abandoned and Choto 3000 was born. (Fun fact: The account had less than 3 deaths by 2013). As stated above, the account's purpose was to beg for money in the Grand Exchange. But that gets really boring really fast, so Choto created a new goal: To explore everything, to unlock all music tracks and to complete all quests. In f2p. Of course. In any case, as he didn't like the grind, he was never able to complete his questing goals until he redeemed a bond for membership. By 2009, Choto got bored and quit the game.

The start of a new era

In 2013, something happened. An e-mail was sent to RuneScape players talking about a new grandmaster quest, The World Wakes, a devious Mahjarrat and the very first world event, in which Zamorak and Saradomin, two of the most influencial gods by then, would fight for Guthix's power. Driven by curiosity, Choto then came back, once again, and this time for good.

Ironman mode and Rusted Iron

In October 2014, the Ironman mode was released. By November, Choto had created an account, named Kaiser Zose, which is still active to this day. During this time he had his first approach to clans and friend chats. He was invited by Rustee and Steelatus, two veteran players, to join one of the first Ironman clans, Rusted Iron, where he quickly got involved into the development of the iron community. But the most influencial group he was part of is F2pIronmanFC, nowadays the largest Free-to-Play ironman hub. The founder of the Friends Chat is Arbre de Vie, mostly known from her main account Treemaid. He became the chat's first moderator and was part of the community's government for two years, until he resigned his position due to heavy frustration. (Fun fact: Clan Quest member Rownak7 was part of F2pIronmanFC as well, but not him or Choto would realize they had been sharing both spaces until 2017)

Runesporring

In 2015, the idea of creating his own clan arised. He gathered a group of friends and created Runesporring, a community oriented clan. Unfortunately, even as it showed a sudden peak of so-called popularity, the project ended in failure and the group disbanded. Choto would remain as owner of the clan until he left it for The Questing Clan of RuneScape

Finding a home

Now with brand-new membership, and with tons of quests to do, Choto started looking for a new clan. He remembered about the RSOF and started lurking around. He would eventually find a thread about a questing clan, where the community goals were everything he had been wishing for. He applied in T-8 (?), was accepted as a recruit, invited by Miss Alaska and (almost) scared away by Quest Kitty. During his June 28, 2015 06:11 GMT as a clanmember, he has achieved great things in RuneScape, such as obtaining the one and only Quest Cape.

On December 2, 2017, exactly 10 years after creating the account, Choto maxed all skills, something he thought would never happen. He continued proving how noob he was when he tried to max Firemaking, his only remaining skill, by lighting a log. But...it wasn't enough! As such, the whole party went on a woodcutting parade. Right after maxing, some penguins kidnapped him (not really), and spawned in Falador's Party Room, where much bronze was subsequently dropped.

Less than one year later, Master Quest Cape arrived, one of the most craved but disgunstingly long achievement a Quester can hope for. His last task involved killing King Black Dragon for a rare drop. It wasn't until 2000+ killcount, and with the help of an absurdely high number of clannies that Choto succeeded. He even got the cape before Xenon Ray!

Conflict with the KGP

The infamous no-pets policy

Choto is well-known in Clan Quest as a hoarder. His bank is always completely filled with junk, mainly due to the fact that he never discarded a quest item. Lost in that black hole, there are a few rare items, namely skilling and boss pets. Since receiving his first pet, the cooking one, Choto has stated very clearly that he intends to collect, and then destroy them in a livestream.

Current skilling pets:
Cooking (pre 99)
Attack
Magic
Hitpoints
Defence
Ranged
Prayer
Strength
Fishing
Farming
Dungeoneering
Mining
Archaeology

Current boss pets:
K'ril Tsutsaroth (157 kc)
King Black Dragon (500kc)
Nex (36kc [Death touched dart])

Clan Quest

Now, everybody knows Clan Quest ain't just about RuneScape. With the implementation of the 2018 Constitution, the clan has evolved into a much, much bigger organization. It is however to be noted that, in Choto's first days in CQ, the Clan was still just a RuneScape community. During his first months as a brand-new clanmember, he remained fairly quiet, nearly not paying attention to the offsite and not mingling with other people. As people like Sira, Draz, Shane, Tyco, Santa, Were, Derp, Shiro, Earth, Cireon (who still owes to announce the winner of the 2017 Vex Competition [And I'm editing this in 2021]), and oh God so many others, can testify, he'd quickly become The Spam Man. It is not certain if the now defunct Discord role @Spam was put in place because Choto was being a pain in the ass, but he'd certainly be honoured if that was the case.

Recruitment Razzer (2016 - 2017)

The Razzers was the first ever group Choto applied for. Irene Angel was the Head of the Razzers back in 2016, and he was formally invited in September 24. Together with Wolffi, the group was featured in the November 2016 issue of Questaholic. At some point which can't be remembered as of today, Irene resigned or went M.I.A, and the group was taken under the wing of Tyco Elf. Choto was (self)appointed as the Unofficial Head Assistant for the Interin Head of the Razzers, marking a precedent for his obsession with creating memethic positions to have fun. Ultimately, the Razzers were disbanded as new policies were put in place.

Questaholic Editor (2016 - 2021)

The Questaholic Editors group was conformed by those who took part in the release of the monthly Clan Quest magazine, the Questaholic. Choto applied to become one of them, and was welcomed by the group's leader and most influential editor since the rebirth of the magazine, Santa Ends. After the 'colos and usergroups' rework, the group became known as the Content Editors. As time passed, Santa became less and less available to head the group, and Choto ended up taking his place in late 2017. He would be Editor in Chef (again with the memethic roles) for around 2 years. He resigned in January 2019, came back, went inactive, came back and released the two last Questaholic issues ever. He'd be retired as Editor when the group was disbanded in February 2021.

Low Councillor (2016 - 2020)

It was agreed that Xenon Ray and Choto 3000 would be promoted to the Low Council on the clan's anniversary, but as that couldn't be done because the planet is too big and Xenon was surely sleeping, Choto was invited to the Low Council on November 16, 2016, while Xenon was promoted on the 26th. In March 2018, the group was combined with the High Council and, together, would form the Guild Council. The new Council became the leading body of the RuneScape Guild, and its members consequently became the leaders. Choto would end up resigning all his positions, including that of RS3 Guild Councillor, in January 17, 2019, after an argument with Clan Councillor Draziw.

That wouldn't last very long though, as he was reinstated to the RS3 Council shortly afterwards. On April 27, 2019, Karen Angel resigned as Head of the Guild Council. Elections were in order, and both Choto and Draziw would protagonize the first ever run-off in the history of the Guild. From that point onwards, Choto's activity would slowly decrease, until reaching an all-time low by November 2020. He finally resigned for the second time on the 13th of that month, but this time at peace with himself and the rest of the Council.

Non-Combat Marshall (2017)

In 2017, Choto organized an event called Noob Army vs. Wilderness. The objective of the event was to assemble a group of Clan Quest noobs to avenge past clanmembers' deaths by killing other players in the Wilderness. There were a series of rules, however, the most notable being that participants could only carry Bronze Equipment, or their equivalent for mages and rangers. In its two iterations, Choto aquired another meme role, that of Non-Combat Marshall (mainly because he is allergic to combat), in reference to the real, very scary Combat Marshalls.

Hoodian Councillor (2018)

Talking about memethic groups, to which category the Hoodian Council does NOT belong, Choto kicked up the first ever election for the Supreme Leader of the Universe. (Not to be confused with Master of the Universe). The idea for such election arised because the first post-constitution Honor Council had just been chosen, and, unlike a serious and official election, this one was characterized by the promotion of fraud, bribery and other tipically illegal actions. With over 10,000,000 votes (Out of a Clan of 500 perople), he was chosen to lead the Council, which he did. For an hour. The Hoodian Faith is Clan Quest's non official religion. It was created by mistake when Choto tried to say 'good morning' and said 'hood morning'. Santa Ends then popularized it and has become not only a form of greeting, but a true faith with true followers. Anyway...just read more about it on it's dedicated page.

Honor Councillor (2018)

On September 2018, Choto was invited by Derparnieux to join both Wolffi and himself in the RuneScape Guild's Honor Council. By the end of that year, Choto was usually categorized as a rank whore, because he held the positions of Editor, Moderator, Guild Councillor for RS3 and OSRS, and now Honor Councillor. On January 10, 2019, Derparnieux resigned as Head of Council, and the group disbanded.

Server Moderator (2018)

Choto doesn't remember why he was promoted to Moderator. Choto doesn't know why he's talking like Potart.

Old School Guild Councillor (2018)

Shortly after being promoted to Moderator, Choto fucked up with the permissions (classic), and posted something where it wasn't meant to be posted. Draziw yelled at him. Thanks to the yelling, Choto very quickly took over the inactive OSRS Guild Council, and was elected (He actually got the job because no one wanted it) as Head of the group on the same day. With the help of fellow clanmembers Draziw (who was still yelling), Grilled Cheese, Santa, Prin, and Sugam, Choto accomplished his main goals: To update the OSRS wikipages, to establish a durable recruitment proccess, to install a strong Council, and to reach 50 members. Per the Constitution, when a Guild reaches 50 members, an Honour Council election must be held. This election, which had been Choto's ultimate objective, proved to be his downfall.

As you've probably read somewhere by now, this is the moment Choto got into a fight with Draz, but this time, not a friendly one. Choto resigned to all his positions and created months of unpleasantness, distruct, resentment and unhappiness between himself and other members, many of whom had been long-time friends. Two years later, he still regrets both his actions towards Draziw and the Clan as a whole, and his resignation from everything he loved. The Old School Council is, to this day, the group he misses the most.

Supreme Overlord of the Pigeon Council (2021 - Current)

After his hard-earned 4th place in Questchamps 1, Choto, alongside part of the Dutch Delegation (Shiro, Derp, Sluyur), and Dia, founded the Chess Guild. The Head of the Chess Guild Council, Derparnieux, appointed him as Head of the Pigeon Council, yet another memethic group, because Choto likes the Bird's opening, one of the most useless chess openings.

Server Moderator (2021 - Current)

Choto was reinstated as server moderator in June 2021. The most likely reason for that was to keep Xenon and Earth in check.

Chess Guild Councilor (2021 - Current)

After having been pestered by Derparnieux and Shiro Shana for a month, Choto accepted a place in the Chess Guild Council. The Pigeon has laid its egg!

RuneScape Guild Councilor (2021 - Current)

Choto asked to rejoin the RS Guild Council on September 15, 2021. He is the first member to have been reinstated to that body twice.

Legacy

Probably the one thing Choto has done for the well-being of the Clan is the (re)installment of the RAWR Awards system. These awards had the ultimate goal of offering a platform for every clan member to nominate others for good actions towards the community. As of August 2017, the RAWR Awards had a spot on the monthly magazine, the Questaholic. You can check the now defunct nominations thread here.

Affiliations to other groups

The Pawfia

The Pawfia is a criminal organization run by the fuzzy kind. Its leader, Quest Kitty, has tried by all means to bring Choto on board, even if he's not fuzzy at all. He claims not to be a member of the Pawfia, but Kitty keeps saying he is.

Sirapyro's Fan Club

Clan Councillor Sirapyro has been Choto's mentor for November 16, 2016 00:00 GMT. Sira was the Head of Low Council when Choto was promoted to that group, as well as a driving force in the Editor's group during Choto's tenure as Editor in Chef. Not only has Sira been ever-patient, ever-teaching, ever-awesome with Choto, but is also the creator of Spiffy McSpoffinberg, a character towards whom Choto has a very unhealthy addiction. If you ever see this, Sira, you're one of the best people I have ever met in my entire life.

The Shrine

There is a well-spread rumour in Clan Quest: The fact that Choto has a shrine dedicated to Spiffy and Sira. Well, guess what. It's partially true. I don't have a Shrine tm, but I do have an array of pictures fit for such a cult. Some of those pictures have been lost due to a broken HDD. The following pictures are just a fraction of them, otherwise, Sira might actually kill me this time:

Other games

Europa Universalis IV

Europa Universalis IV (EU4), is one of Paradox's grand-strategy games, and a personal favourite of Choto. He shares the enthusiasm with Slayer, Cory and Sira. Over the course of his ~800 hours of gameplay, he has completed numerous difficult achievements:

Eu4achievs.png

Left to right, top to bottom:

Auld Alliance Reversed (As Scotland, have France as a vassal)

Historical context: The Auld Alliance (Old Alliance, quite literally), was a pact between the Kingdoms of France and Scotland with the purpose to control England's never-ending desire for land. The achievement has quite a degree of difficulty, mainly because you will need to kill England first, and then go after Baguette, which, if left unchecked, can become an incredibly powerful foe. Fun fact: The Holy Roman Empire elected me (Scotland) as Emperor, in that campaign. Completion rate: 1.0% of all players.

Forever Golden (Complete the Spanish mission tree)

Historical context: Several nations in EU4 have unique mission trees, which are basically objectives based on actual history. The spanish tree mainly revolves on uniting the Iberian peninsula under your rule, colonizing the Americas, parts of Africa and the Philippines, and messing with the Holy Roman Empire, as good ol' Philip II did. Relatively easy achievement. Completion rate: 1.0% of all players.

A Sun God (Form Inca, embrace all institutions and own all of South America)

Historical context: This achievment is quite hard, as you will have to face the far superior European colonizers. At some points, I was at war with Spain, the United Kingdom, France and Portugal, alongside their respective colonial dominions. Completion rate: 1.4% of all players.

Mare Nostrum (Restore the Roman Empire and own the entire Mediterranean and Black Sea coasts)

Historical context: EU4 campaigns begin in the year 1444. The Roman Empire fell almost a thousand years ago. This one is a hard achievement, as you will have to fight against all major nations, such as the Ottoman Empire, France, Russia and Austria. I completed this achievement as Aragon, as I was going for the Consulate of the Seas. Completion rate: 2.7% of all players.

The Re-Reconquista (As Granada, form Andalusia and reconquer all of Iberia)

Historical context: Granada is the last Muslim nation remaining in the Iberian Peninsula. It is the direct successor of the incredibly powerful Abassid and Umayyad caliphates, which had nearly conquered all of Iberia a couple centuries earlier. The Kingdom of Asturias (nowadays the seat of the heir apparent to the Spanish throne), stood as the last frontier of the Catholic world in Iberia, and, slowly but steady, emarqued on "The Reconquista", which came to an end when the Catholic Kings' (Elizabeth I and Ferdinand V) armies entered the city of Granada. The objective of this achievement is to push back the far superior Castillian, Aragonese and Portuguese armies and re-reconquer the peninsula. Very hard achievement. Completion rate: 1.4% of all players.

Academical (As Athens, own 50 universities)

Historical context: The Duchy of Athens starts, in 1444, as a vassal to the nearly fallen Bizantine Empire. The difficulty of this achievement relies on the fact that you can only build one university per county/province owned, and you start with only 1. After some tedious first decades, I managed to break free of Bizantium, escape the Ottoman Empire's madness, colonize the new world and build the universities there. Completion rate: 0.6% of all players

Basileus (As Byzantium, restore the Roman Empire)

Historical context: Related to the last one. This achievement is very, very hard, due to the fact that you must reconquer the territory lost against the Ottoman Empire, by far the most powerful and dangerous nation in 1444. Historically, the Bizantine Empire's capital, Constantinople, fell to the Ottomans in 1453, marking the end of the Eastern Roman Empire and the Middle Ages. Completion rate: 3.4% of all players.

Keep off the sand! (Half Life 2, irrelevant)


Sons of Carthage (As Tunisia, own Sicily, Sardinia, the Balearic Islands, the coast of Algiers and southern Spain)

Historical context: The nation of Tunisia was indirectly born from the ashes of Carthage, the famous enemy of Rome. If you decide to embark on this achievement, you'll have to battle very powerful states, such as Spain, France and even the Pope. Completion rate: 1.2% of all players.

Consulate of the Sea (As Aragon, conquer all Mediterranean centres of trade)

Historical context: The Kingdom of Aragon, archnemesis of the Kingdom of Castile, had a great standing as a merchant nation. If we were talking abobut Game of Thrones, it would be Lannister territory. This achievement offers you claims all over the Mediterranean sea, and helps you a lot if you also want to complete Mare Nostrum. That's what I did. Compeltion rate: 1.4% of all players

There can only be one (Become immortal [Crusader Kings 2])

Very funny, and very difficult due to RNG.

Barbarossa (As a Maghrebi nation, have 500 light ships privateering at the same time)

Historical context: My current wallpaper is a sketch of two ships engaged in battle. It's a drawing of the Second Barbary War from 1815, fought between the United States and the Deylik of Algiers. The Maghrebi (later Barbary) pirates were feared all along the southern coasts of Castile, Aragon, France, and the Italian nations. Quite easy but funny achievement, accomplished along Sons of Carthage. Completion rate: 1.1% of all players

Spaghetti Western (Form Mexico or Texas as Bologna)

Historical context: Bologna was a very small, land-locked Italian state. The achievement is very difficult because, first of all, you are surrounded by lots of more powerful states that want your land. If you manage to survive the onslaught, you'll still need to quickly reach Central America before Spain or Portugal conquer it. Very funny achievement. Completion rate: 0.4% of all players.

Zombie Chopper (Half Life 2, irrelevant)


Nationstates

Nationstates is, with fears of being redundant, a nation-simulation game. Very simple, but very fun to play from time to time. Choto has 3 nations:

  • The Liberated Land of the Peoples Free Democractic Democracy. (Note the typo)
  • The United Socialist States of the Hoodian Faith.
  • The Free Land of José Luis Espert.

The Liberated Land of the Peoples Free Democractic Democracy

Branded as a psycothic dictatorship, the Peoples Free Democractic Democracy is an extremely corrupt, economically strong nation with its civil and political freedoms outright outlawed. More than 6 billion people live in this Macedonia-sized nation, whose capital city, leader, faith, national animal and currency are all named "The People", and the inhabitant's demonym is "peoples". It is a member of the RuneScape Bits and Bytes region, alongside The Zarosian Empire of Vindictan Forces, owned by Xenon and The Utopia of Microsoftsia, owned by Shane, among others.

It is a very harsh country to live in, as you can see from its public policies:

  • The Constitution has only one article, which categorizes the country as an Autocracy.
  • The Dictator's Handbook has four articles, written by The People itself:
    • Socialism
    • State Press
    • No Dissent
    • Pledge of Alliance
  • The society has accepted the following unwritten laws:
    • Divorce is illegal
    • Homosexuality is illegal
    • Adultery is illegal
    • Contraception is illegal
    • Biological reproduction is illegal
    • Piercings are illegal
    • Clothing is illegal
    • Sports are illegal
    • Religion is illegal (Excepting for The People)
    • Keeping your organs when you die is illegal
    • Sports are illegal
    • Tobacco is illegal
    • Zoos are illegal
    • Computers are illegal
    • The internet is illegal
    • Drugs are illegal
    • Automobiles are illegal
    • Alcohol is illegal
    • Gambling is illegal
    • Video Games are illegal
    • Justice is illegal
    • Prisons are illegal
  • The People requires its citizens to:
    • Acquire a license to have children
    • Serve in the army for 10 years
    • Own a fire-arm
    • Submit their DNA to the state
    • Own a slave
    • Employ children
  • Failure to comply leads to:
    • Torture
    • Capital Punishment
  • As an international example, the nation:
    • Runs a nuclear programme
    • Runs a space programme
    • Owns Weapons of Mass Destruction
    • Forbids foreigners to enter the country
    • Forbids nationals to leave the country


The country is also amongst the 1% of the world's nations in the categories of Most Conservative, Most Advanced Defense Forces, Weapons Manufacturing, Most Advanced Law Enforcement and Most Ignorant Citizens.

Real Life Meetups

Choto had the pleasure of meeting a large number of clannies when he travelled to London for the 2018 edition of RuneFest. Not everyone he met is in this gallery, but they are not forgotten.

Some trivia facts

Choto maintains a love-hate relationship with Kexy, Tosols and Nordic, his meme mother and sons, respectively.

He is also the first ever member of the Factionless in the Clan Quest - After Dark server.

Choto is, as of June 16, 2021, after Lizbeth, MsKonnan 10, Miss Alaska, Wolfie, Draziw, Cireon, and Sinistral, the clanmember with more posts in the Offsite, with 3140+ posts. However, he joined in mid-2015, with the rest joining between 2010 and 2012, statistically making him the most avid Offsite stalker ever. The top 10 posters also make up aorund 10% of all posts. (Don't quote me on that, I can barely math properly). THIS HEDIOUS MATH HAS BEEN DISPROVED BY NONE OTHER THAN THE MATHBOIS (Derp and Shiro)

He currently has the 1st longest userpage in this Wiki, having taken the spot from Shane. How long that will last though, we shall see.

Choto is the only member with two warnings in the offsite, and is followed by Sira and Shane, who both have one each. All of those warnings were issued by Lord Earth because he is insecure and has to solve his lack of love with power abuse.

Choto appeared in one episode of RuneScapeBits&Bytes.

Every time Monsieur Ognion makes a wiki edit, he knows Choto is breathing down his neck.

So...What's up nowadays?

Hoods.

Real life: I'm currently entertaining myself with my first commercial venture, a wine bar! It's called La Comarca (Spanish for The Shire). It's going well, I might upload some pictures here.

RuneScape: I haven't really been playing as of late. I just came back for Battle of the Monolith. I have the saddest of news: I will never reclaim my Quest Cape, because I'm extremely disgusted by the Slime shit Quest. That's good bye to Master Quest Cape too. But don't fret, my Untrimmed Smithing Cape tm is never gonna leave me!

Chess: I'm trying to get better. It's not an easy job because I like playing the Bird's, and Derp makes fun of me.

Shiro says hoods.

About Bronze and why it is the best metal ever

Have you ever sen bronze? Well, that's the reason. Now go away.

If you reached this far, that means you love me. I knew it, I'm irresistible.


Insufferable.png


Oh well.

Unhoods
