Builder Guide
This guide explains how you can contribute to the Clan Quest code projects. Note that this is not the only method, since everybody tends to use their own tools and setup, but hopefully it will be enough to get you started.

Before you can begin

There are a few prerequisites before you can get started with writing code for Clan Quest:

  • Be a full member of Clan Quest. While there is nothing preventing non-members from contributing, we do prefer to have a clear way of communication with all contributors.
  • Create an account on GitHub. GitHub is a website where code can be shared. It doesn't work like Google Drive or Dropbox in that it just stores the files, it is actually a bit smarter than that. The next section explains this.
  • Get in touch with Cireon or Shane who can add you to the Clan Quest organisation on GitHub. This is not required, but it will make it a bit easier to work with our code repositories.

Version management

GitHub is a hub for Git repositories. Git is source control management or version management software. Instead of just saving the latest versions of files, Git actually saves the incremental differences between file versions. This makes it possible to easily revert changes in case you make a mistake, or to see who worked on what. Each of these checkpoints are manually created and referred to as commits. On GitHub, you can browse back all these commits in addition to the latest versions of the files.

Git also allows you to have multiple versions of the code on different branches. A branch is basically its own copy of the code, but with different commits on top of it. Branches can be merged together if you want to keep the changes from both of them going forward.

Borosouro
Borosouro (often referred to as Boro for short) is a relatively new member of the Questing Clan of RuneScape, having joined on Halloween of 2017. The name "Borosouro" was made up on a whim, being derived from the ancient Ouroboros symbol which depicts a serpent eating its own tail. On occasion, he will use other usernames also starting with "Boro", with previous names including "Borokalla" and "Borosnowy".

Adventures in Runescape

Early Years

Borosouro first started playing RuneScape in the summer of 2008, shortly after the release of RuneScape HD. As he was young at the time, he was very nooby and did not progress much in the game. He played in a somewhat on-and-off manner from then on, taking long breaks and creating a new account after each break. (Some of those breaks included playing games on FunOrb, which was popular among RuneScape players back then.) He liked to try to explore the game for himself and did not like using guides, which prevented him from getting very far on each account. Nonetheless, on one of his accounts, he managed to complete the One Small Favour quest with heavy assistance from the former QuestHelp system, all before the release of lodestones! However, over the years his interest in RuneScape would decline as he discovered other games, and his last account stopped playing in early 2012.

The Return

Although Borosouro thought he had moved past RuneScape after he had quit, he continued to have dreams about his fond memories of RuneScape for many years to come. In December of 2016, the weight of those memories had made its toll, and he decided to revisit RuneScape again for nostalgia's sake. This was when the account "Borosouro" was made. He originally planned to play just for a few months before going back to other games, but he quickly became much more engaged than expected, and made progress at a much faster rate than any of his previous accounts. He had loads of fun discovering everything that was new since he had last played, and was eager to try and complete as much of the game as he could. Less than a year after he had started playing, his enthusiasm for completing quests led him to Clan Quest when he was searching for a new clan. By then, he had earned 249 quest points and had a total level of 2077.
