Ice Cream In A Bag Less Than 10 minutes!
2 Tablespoon sugar (or substitute sweetner of choice)
1 cup half & half (or light cream)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup coarse salt or table salt(I used canning salt)
gallon-sized Ziploc bag
Mix the sugar, half & half and vanilla extract together. Pour into a pint-sized Ziploc baggie. Make sure it seals tightly.
Now take the gallon-sized Ziploc bag and fill it up halfway with ice and pour the salt over the ice. Now place the cream filled bag into the ice filled bag and seal.
Make sure it is sealed tightly and start shaking. Shake for about 5 minutes (or 8 minutes if you use heavy cream.)
Open the gallon-sized bag and check to see if the ice cream is hard, if not keep shaking. Once the ice cream is finished, quickly run the closed pint-sized baggie under cold water to quickly clean the salt off the baggie.
Open the baggie and pop in a spoon.Hope you enjoy your homemade ice cream in a baggie as much as we do!

How did you stumble upon RuneScape?
A friend of mine (you may know him as Schnetts) was playing it rather early on, and I decided to try it out.
What's your favourite thing to do in the game?
What do you do for entertainment outside of RuneScape?
Read previous answer (aka hunting).
What career path are you following or hope to pursue?
Either I.T. or game design.
What's your favourite animal and why?
Narwhals. Need I say more?
Please explain your OS profile picture, because it's a cool one
It's just me at the end animation of the werewolf transform emote, with a background picture that i found on Google images.
So, apparently you play Minecraft. What's it about that game that makes you want to continue playing? Any amazing creations you would like to share in the form of a screenshot?
I just like building, and there isn't really an end to that.
Imagine, you have the Enchanted Key but it is malfunctioning; you won't be able to go back to the present after you use it. Which Runescapian age (1-2-3-4-5) would you teleport to, and why?
3rd cause they have cool armour and I can KILL STUFF.
What is your opinion on silly noobs?
*eye twitch* No comment
Do you believe in double-layered chocolate pie?
How did you get started into making mc skins? and do you do texture's aswell?
Before me SG81440 was the only guy in the clan making skins, and at one point he just... stopped. I decided to give it a try by making a skin for Avaricious. Turns out I love it . Also yes, I'm currently making a texture pack; just not actively.
Dom If you could travel (either backwards or forwards) in time with no way of returning, what year/age would you go to (if any) and why?
About 30 minutes ago, so I wouldn't have eaten that last Klondike Bar.
What are your goals in life?
-Get married (check)
-Graduate college (workin on it)
-Have at least 2 kids (ALMOST THERE)
Hi, Loud - You name really is a contradiction. I look forward to hearing more about you.
Just tell us one thing that you most want to talk about, related to your experiences playing RS with this clan for so long.
(And 'fav.color' for the magazine typesetter, of course.)
One thing? I LOVE YOU ALL. You've all made my rs experience for the past 3 years so much brighter
...I'll let you guys guess what his favourite colour was.
P.S. A little bird told me you're also expecting a little Loudee in November...tell us about that :)
Yup, my wife is currently pregnant, and due in November. Were about 90% sure its a boy, and his name will be Jake.
Also, why did you want to be auctioned? I bought you, Ha, ha. What are you good at slaving away at?
I took the liberty of searching for a screenshot of one of Loud's works. Impressive!

Lately there's been a certain minigame gathering dust on Mos Le'Harmless. Trouble Brewing is (unknown to some) an exciting, fast-paced game of teamwork where your primary goal is to brew alcoholic beverages.
Do I have your attention now?
1. Requirements and Getting There
First off, seeing as this minigame is located on Mos Le'Harmless, you're gonna need to be able to get there. And for that, you need to complete the quest Cabin Fever, which will grant you transportation to Mos Le'Harmless via Bill Teach's ship. An alternative route is the fairy ring on the small island, which you can use after finishing Fairy Tale Part III, provided you fix the bridges.
2. Starting a Game
Here's where the hard part comes in. To begin a game of Trouble Brewing, each team must have a minimum of three players in the waiting area. And as it's dead content....this can strike as rather a problem. But if by miracle you do manage to find 5 other players in addition to yourself, congratualtions! You can now start a game of Trouble Brewing.
Ingredient 1: Buckets of Water
Each bottle of rum made requires 5 buckets of water. Four inventories worth of water buckets should be more than enough to last throughout the game. The water count should not need replenishing if all the buckets are added to the hopper (the hopper room is located UPSTAIRS at the base) immediately at the beginning of the game.
Ingredient 2: Coloured Water
This ingredient is quite tedious to collect but is often the fastest to run empty. First, flowers must be collected from the OPPOSITE team's base. For example, if you are on the red team, you will need to run across the water to the other team's base and collect the blue flowers located there. Each player can only hold 5 flowers at a time. To save time, a good method is to have two team mates collect flowers together (manly huh). One team member picks flowers then trades them to their team mate, and repeats until that team mate has a full inventory of flowers. They both run back to the base and add flowers to the KETTLE until it is full.
To draw coloured water from the kettle, you need to grab bowls from the supplies table in your base. Keep adding flowers to the kettle if you have any left over, and be mindful to run and collect more flowers if needed - remember, the coloured water runs out fast!
Once you have several bowls of coloured water, you have two options on how to use them. The first is to deposit them into the hopper for coloured water. 3 bowls are needed for each bottle of rum produced, so you'll need to add as many as you can!
The other use for coloured water is for colouring monkeys. These are used to obtain bitternuts, which is explained later in detail. It's a good idea to save 2 or 4 bowls of coloured water for monkeys and deposit the rest into the hopper.
Ingredient 3: Scrapey Bark
The bark is probably the easiest ingredient to obtain, besides water buckets. Simply run to one of the scrapey trees on the site (they normally lie to the sides of the base and on the islands where the bitternut trees are) and chop them for logs. After you have enough logs - around 8-10 all up, (1 bark is needed per bottle of rum) click the logs in your inventory to cut the scrapey bark off, then add it to the hoppers at the base.
Ingredient 4: Sweetgrubs
Similar to the scrapey bark with a few extra steps. To the sides of the base and on islands are sweetgrub mounds. To obtain the sweetgrubs, you first need to grab raw meat off of the supplies table - around half an inventory, depending on how much space you have. Then go to a sweetgrub mound and 'use' the raw meat on it. If you're lucky, you'll get a few catches of sweetgrubs. It doesn't take long for the sweetgrub mound to deplete and sometimes a swarm can appear out of it. If this happens, you will need to run and find a different sweetgrub mound to scavenge from. Again 1 lot of sweetgrubs is needed per bottle of rum, so 8-10 should suffice
Ingredient 5: Bitternuts
Considered to be the most complicated task. To collect bitternuts you will first need to carry two bowls of coloured water in your inventory. Next, head towards one of the islands and catch two monkeys. Use the bowls of coloured water on them to mark them with your team's colour (utterly pointless really, but hey....). Then use the coloured monkey on a bitternut tree to make it grab a bitternut and bring it back to you. You can only carry two bitternuts at once, so do this twice before heading to the base to place the nuts in the hopper. As 1 bitternut is required for each bottle of rum, 8-10 bitternuts should be enough to cover the round. This step can take some time, so it's a good idea to get well into it early so that you don't run short of bitternuts, delaying rum production.
A good time time start tending to the boilers in when you have enough ingredients for at least one bottle of rum to be made (the number next to each ingredient should turn green). There are three boilers at your team's base that need to be filled with logs to start working. The logs can be taken from the log store in the base. To start up a boiler, use a log on it, then click the boiler to light it with a tinderbox. Each boiler needs to be filled with three logs for the rum production to work. However, as the log count for each boiler decreases over time (you can't burn the same logs forever!), new logs will need to be added. This is why it's wise to start working on boilers AFTER enough ingredients have been collected to produce rum. The maximum logs each boiler can hold is 10.
....let's not go there
6. Collecting Rum
Rum icon flashes. You go click the rum on conveyer belt.
No I'm totally kidding. Nex appears and you have to solo her before you can pick up the rum.
At the end of the game you will get a small amount of experience based on the tasks you performed, and also some Pieces of Eight (poe). The amount of poe that you receive depends on the ingredients you collected and the amount of rum bottles successfully made as a team.
1 bottle of rum = 2 Pieces of Eight
1 Ingredient = 1 Piece of Eight (up to 100 extra poe for the each ingredient you collected)
To be eligible for the rewards, for each bottle of rum you MUST have gathered at least:
- 1 bitternut
- 1 sweetgrubs
- 1 scrapey tree bark or
- 3 bowls of coloured water
In other words, don't bomb out and slack on water buckets the whole game.
Honest Jimmy's House of Stuff
This is the place where you can spend your Pieces of Eight. Talk to Honest Jimmy near the deposit box to see his store. He can sell you:
- Being dead content it should be noted that at the moment it's VERY difficult to find enough players to start a game.
- Let's face it, the rewards aren't spectacular. Trouble Brewing could do with more options for xp prizes or more useful item rewards.
- Much of the funtions demand the 'click item' and 'use-on-[insert thing here*' operation, so adding ingredients to hoppers for example can get tedious.
- The outfits and flags themselves look cool because not many people have them.
- The whole setup of this minigame is rather unique, having to collect odd ingredients through different manners - it makes the game fun!
-There's a lot of communication and teamwork involved, having to work together and make sure the roles are spread out so ingredients can be gathered as efficiently as possible.
- I play it, that should be convincing enough

Special Events during the month of August
On July 13th, many clan members were auctioned off as slaves, in an Inter-clan Auction held in Skygardian's Citadel. This was a really big event and our clan's group, Event Thugs United (ETU), were recipients of 1/2 the funds which our clan members raised by getting sold as slaves. The event brought in 56M gp to be used for prizes and incentives at Clan Quest Events.
Some of these funds are being used for the Summer Events being organized for all clan members enjoyment. The first of these events was held Sunday, July 28th. The clan held a Cabbage Bombing Parade and QPC Emote through the towns of Gielinor.
In the Events Topic you can read about the next events planned for August. I hope everyone voted in the poll that was held, to give their feed-back on what activities you most wanted to see.
Aug.4, at 3pm CST - Treasure Hunt
August 11, at 1:30 pm CST - A 2ndJoke Competition
August 18, at 3pm CST - Doggy Walk & Pet Parade
And the funds? How are they being used? All participants in the Summer Events will be given 100K at the end of each event, just for participating...AND, all of the above Events will have prizes awarded!
What could be better? Money and Fun, all rolled into one. Watch for the announcements in our EVENT FORUM on this site, and in the RuneScape T7 Forum.

Today Clan chat is introduced to Geilenor! This was a huge change for RS, becoming the first interface for any form of clans in-game.
This system, although evolved over time, kept it's spot in RS. Although we know this system, not as a Clan Chat, but Friends Chat!
August 28th, 2001
Everdred achieves level 99 in Woodcutting, the first to do so! There was a huge race at the time to see who would achieve such a feat, and after long hours of crying because of lack of sleep, and hallucinations, Everdred did it.
This sparks fire in many users hearts, setting off a burst of 99's to come in the next few weeks.
Sadly, Everdred only stuck with RS until 2004, leaving behind his fame. He had around 28 million experience, and was a level 87 whenhe quit.

Wander though the trees, my love,
Under the weeping willow,
Feel them brush your cheek, my love,
Whilst in the wind they blow.
Whisper in his ear, my love,
Watch him shrink away,
Smile in disbelief, my love,
Maybe another day.
Wipe those pearly tears, my love,
Let silk caress your face,
See them disappear, my love,
From your warm embrace.
Walk beside the river, my love,
Lighten your heart and step,
Forget the memory, my love,
Another life's mishap.
