Bulletin - August 2019

New leaders for the RuneScape guild.
Last month saw the changes in leadership for both RuneScape Guild councils. As we all know by now, Draziw and Wolffi resigned to their positions, while Shane and Cireon were chosen to lead the Guild and Honour councils, respectively. You can read more about them in the following article.

RuneFest.
As every year, the clan will have a substantial representation for RuneFest, and here is a reminder in case you missed the June bulletin. Cireon has been spearheading the efforts to organize the whole event in this forum. Check it out and see if you can help us have a smooth RuneFest!


Clan Quest Fest.
In just 4 months and 9 days, Clan Quest will be 10 years old! For that great milestone, Draziw has proposed a meetup in Cleveland, Ohio. We want to celebrate the past, the present and the future of this Clan. This is probably one of the best opportunities you'll ever have to meet face-to-face with your fellow clanmates, to make friends, to visit new places and maybe even have a date with that clannie you have a crush on. Don't forget to check this thread and register your interest!

Content Editors.
Old news, but yes, we're always looking for some extra hands. We've recently seen the addition of new members to the group, but it doesn't end there. If you want to interview clannies, make videos, draw or even have your own Questaholic section, be sure to contact Sirapyro and/or Choto. Even if you are not sure how you can contribute, but know you would like to, reach out!

Let me math for a second...
...
...
Ok, I think I got it. This year alone, we've already seen 6 different people take over as Heads of various councils across the clan. According to recent tradition, we couldn't have a new issue without new Heads! So let's add a 2 to that 6, because I'm here to present you our newest bosses! Their love story is one like the clan had never seen before, it's like...a modern version of The Beauty and the Beast! (Who is the beauty and who is the beast is for you to decide). But enough of my ramblings, let me present you to:

Cireon, Head of the RuneScape Honor Council

Hello noobs!

I'm Cireon, and I'm the new Head of Honor Council for the RuneScape guild. I've been in the clan for many years now (so many, I don't even remember what year I joined!), and held many positions, so I think many of you will already know me. Nevertheless, Choto insists on me introducing myself, and I bet a lot of newer members may not have seen me around much, so here goes.
In real life, I'm a software engineer (not a professional punner, as you might expect), though I also have a big passion for games. I spend a lot of time playing them (too much, you could argue), but also developing my own. Several years ago, I released a game on Steam, though sadly it never picked up enough to make a living off. Still, I work on developing games as hobby projects, and my passion for game mechanics shines through as well in my work for RSBANDB, where I both regularly appear on the podcast, and write monthly Informer articles.
Other hobbies I have besides gaming and game development are archery, programming, baking, and hiking.
I'm a very casual RS player, but I'm online a lot of the time, so feel free to DM me if you have any concerns, even if you're not sure it's worth my attention or if you just want to have a chat.

-And here is the unreleased picture. Guard it carefully.

Shane, 25/7/2019
Shane, Head of the RuneScape Guild Council

Hello Clan Quest!

Only a couple short weeks ago I was elected by the RuneScape 3 Guild Council to serve as head. I joined Clan Quest in 2015, was selected to be part of Seb’s Honor Council, lead the website modernization project, and was promoted to Clan Council in March 2018. I also have a RuneScape fansite: RSBandB, which in itself runs the longest running RuneScape podcast, RSBANDBUpdate! which many Clan Questers have guested on. Personally I live and have always lived in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I can say that Alberta is probably one of the best places to visit in North America, so come visit! But that’s enough about me, let’s talk about the RS3 Guild!

I have already promised the Guild Council that we’ll be light on radical change but as we head into the 10th anniversary of Clan Quest I need to highlight one important that describes our community. Awesome. Here in Guild Council we administrate but the truth is that without our members, we would be nothing. While we handle the mundane administration tasks, the goal going forward for all members is to keep being awesome! I want to also take this moment to remind you to encourage your friends to guest in our Clan Chat. We are primarily a questing clan (of course!) but we also have many shared interests among ourselves and anyone can almost always find a space within our community.

One aspect of Clan Quest that is truly remarkable is the closeness of our community. We have many sub-groups within Clan Quest (yes, hoods) and amongst those other groups is the Guild Council. As head my official role is to serve as the communicator between Guild Council and you, the members of the RuneScape 3 Guild. Clan Quest is remarkable as such that there are many key members online at almost all times. If you have an idea for Clan Quest or you want to make something happen, make a post on the forums or tag one of us in Discord. After you do that we’ll help you in any way possible to make it a reality! We are here, use us!

Thank you

Welcome to the official Clan Quest "Feature of the Month"! Every month there will be two different pages featured on our official Clan Wiki: An article, and a members user page! These pages are chosen by the editors team at the end of each month and will have a place on the front page of the wiki until the beginning of the next. Featured pages will also be given an official "Featured Stamp of Approval" that will forever signify that they were once a featured page! Without further ado, the featured pages for August 2019 are:

FeaturedArticle.png FORMER RS3 HONOUR COUNCILLORS
Given that just a few days ago we elected a new Head for the RS3 Honour Council, we thought it would be cool to go through the history of former notable people who formed that group in the past. Part of the Notable People series.

Since it was founded in 2009, there have been more than a thousand people that have at one point or another called themselves a member of Clan Quest. A large number of those people have made a significant impact on the history of the Clan; its development, its Guilds, its websites, and so on. Unfortunately, not all of these...

FeaturedMember.png STATE BIRD
State Bird is an Honor Councilor in the Questing Clan of RuneScape, and a park ranger in real life. He's one of the newest members of the clan, yet he has been extremely active in all our platforms.

Hoods! I'm State Bird and I join Clan Quest the same day I submitted my application on May 30th, 2019. It did not take long for me to start saying hello and talking to everyone as I am quite the social butterfly! I achieved my very own Quest Cape back on August 21st, 2016. It was my proudest moment ever in RuneScape and I continue to wear that cape in pride...

If you would like to submit an article or user page to be considered for "Feature on the Month", please get in contact with the editors team on the offsite or Discord. Only the pages that are the most complete will be considered, so get to writing!

QUESTAHOLIC PRESENTS

An interview with the legendary OSRS guild councilor, Francine!

By Choots.

<::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::}]xxxx()o

August 2019 015.jpg

GENERAL

What are you currently studying?
I first decided to study a Bachelors in Nursing for the one reason that I liked helping those in need. After taking the first core Nursing classes, I knew it wasn’t for me. I didn’t like asking the difficult questions or touching those who were sick. However, I do enjoy the Biology part, learning how my whole body worked. I then changed my major to Academic Exploration and took a well needed class to focus on me in search of my purposeful career. As of now, I will soon take classes for a Liberal Arts Degree which is like creating my own degree. I choose to have a little of each in Communications, Business, and Sociology. I don’t know what I will do with the degree, that is my next step to figure out. My whole family asks this question all the time, and it has been pretty hard to describe it to him.

What do you do for a living?
Being a full-time Daughter, Sister, and Aunt.

What's your favourite sport?
Tennis, I have played since I was 8 when my sister was on the High School team. I then was on the tennis team in high school and decided to play in college for 2 years. I have recently dropped to focus on my academics. I’d rather play singles than doubles, and I would say I’m at intermediate level.

August 2019 016.jpg

Which are your favourite childhood cartoons?
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants
Absorbent and yellow and porous is he Spongebob Squarepants
If nautical nonsense be something you wish Spongebob Squarepants
Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob Squarepants   Spongebob Squarepants  
Spongebob Squarepants Spongebob Squarepants

I honestly didn’t like that many cartoons. Tom and Jerry, Teen Titans, and Kim Possible were not on as much as Spongebob.

August 2019 017.png

If you could have any super power other than invincibility, what would you choose and why?
I have always thought about if I had super speed because I would have to eat a lot of calories and I love eating. I would also love to reduce travel time. I also enjoy watching the Flash TV show.

What are your favourite outdoor activities?
I don't really like being outside. Most of the time I'm inside. However, I do enjoy Camping outside, Campfires, playing in the snow, Fourwheeler rides, Raking Leaves, and having a Picnic.

Which is your favourite movie?
There are too many, but what I can think of right now is, The Proposal, Forrest Gump, and La La Land. My favorite TV shows are Teen Wolf, Shadowhunters, and The DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

August 2019 018.png

What sort of music and artists do you listen to?
When I was younger, I was all about Country Music, like my family was. When I got into High School, I became more interested in Pop music. Now, I honestly enjoy listening to anything except Rap or anything mixed with Rap. Specifically, I’m into the Jonas Brothers as of right now.

Which books would you recommend?
I don’t read many books. I have never enjoyed reading as a hobby. I'll be watching the movie when it comes out.

What's your favourite type of food?
Itallian and Mexican. I like Pasta, Pizza, Quesadillas, and Tacos. My Choice in Fast food is either Subway or Arby’s. I also love to have Mac and Cheese with BBQ sauce. I put mac and cheese on my shredded BBQ pork sandwiches.

Do you prefer mom's food or restaurant food?
I would have to say Moms food whenever she does NOT make Hamburger Helper and say restaurant or Fast Food if she does make Hamburger Helper. I love her Meatloaf and Chili the most..


GAMING

Which are your favourite games?
OSRS Runescape, Sims, Minecraft, Munchkin, Risk, Monopoly, Scrabble, Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet and Clank, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Mario Brothers, Pokemon, and Card Games

August 2019 019.png

What are your favourite video game genres?
Adventure, Life Simulation, Party Games, and Logic Games.

Which was the most difficult video game you ever beat?
I probably only beaten one game and that was Guitar Hero 1 & 2 on Medium Difficulty.

What's the toughest thing you've ever accomplished in a video game?
Five Stars on all songs on Medium Difficulty on Guitar Hero 1.

When playing with friends, do you prefer video games or tabletop games, and why do you prefer one over the other?
Tabletop Games because then everyone can play. I only have a PS2, so you can only have two players at a time.


RUNESCAPE

What's your favourite skill?
Farming, because it is not a grinding skill, you do a run and then come back to it later.

August 2019 020.png

What's your favourite quest?
Never could decide on a favorite, I like most of the milestone quests like Legends, Heroes, and RFD.

When did you start playing?
Around the time quick chat came out in 2009. Dan was very protective of me during my childhood. He wouldn’t allow me to have an account where I could tell strangers anything. I obviously understand now, but when I turned 13, I was too excited to actually talk to others.

What was your very first accomplishment cape?
Quest Cape, Duh! I wasnt that accomplished in RS3, I was in Middle school at the time and didn’t enjoy it as much as Dan. But when OSRS came out, I was more about it than Dan. I got my First Accomplishment cape in OSRS with Dan on October 22, 2015.

You get 30 seconds of full attention from all employees of Jagex. What do you say?
I don't know what I would say to be honest. Dan would say the Artisan Skill would have been a great skill if they had developed it better when they polled it. He would have also argue that an Auction house would have been better than the GE that has predetermined prices. He would also go on a rant on about how EOC has ruined the game that eventually he would be carried out by Security.

August 2019 021.jpg

You get a ticket to visit Gielinor IRL. Where do you go first?
The Grand Tree, because its HUGE!


GENERAL PART 2

What are your biggest dreams in life?
I am the youngest of my family, so the main focus my whole life was knowing everything about them. I wanted to be just like my older siblings. I never had my own realistic dreams or aspirations. Maybe one when I was obsessed with Hannah Montana, being a popstar myself. When I was a kid, I remember I wanted to be a teacher because I had some great ones myself.

If you could have any 3 animals in the world (only real animals, no fictional), which would you pick?
A dog, cat, and hamster. They are easy to take care of.

If you had to give up one of your senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste) which one would you pick?
Smell for sure. I would then not be bothered by farts, burps, and other odd smells. I would be invincible!!!!

How would you describe yourself to others?
The nicest person you would ever meet. I try to keep the calm by keeping my opinions to myself. I don’t want to upset anyone. I also like to be helpful in anyway I can. I can be very persistent during cleaning too, Dan doesn’t like this about me.

What is your most used item in your daily life?
My Fitbit, phone, and laptop.

Will you go to RuneFest this year?
I’m not really up for traveling at all. Never left the USA. I just feel comfortable here and not up for any sort of change. This is where my family is.

If I were to visit your country, what do you think I should do first?
Drive on the RIGHT side of the road. [Editor’s note: LMAO I’m not british]

What are your favourite cities/locations, both in RS and in real life?
Lately I have spent most of my time at the new Farming Guild. When It came out in January I was level 84 Farming, Now, I’m at level 94!! I have also done 180 contracts and killed the hespori 30 times with a personal best time of 1:19. I have received the Bottomless compost bucket on my 6th and 30th kill. IRL, it's probably at home in my bed.

Do you have a motto or a favourite phrase? If so, which is it?
Not really. I do like “Treat others the way you want to be treated,” and “Everything happens for a reason.”

Do you play an instrument? If not, which instrument/s would you like to learn?
I played a Clarinet in Middle School Band in 2010-2013. Never played it since.

August 2019 022.jpg

Tell us the story behind your name!
My oldest sibling’s first and middle Name starts with an A. From then on my siblings went in Alphabetical Order. I am the Sixth Born so they had to think of a name that started with an F. My siblings were watching Arthur, the TV show, and his little sister’s name is Francine. That's where I get my name from. If I was a boy, it would have been Frank. My middle name is Fay, it stands for Faith. “1225” comes from my birthday, yes, on Christmas. I have only gotten double presents from family. I do enjoy it much more than others. I have met other people born on Christmas or close to it, and their family doesn’t celebrate it as special as mine does.

How many languages do you speak? Which one would you like to learn?
English. Learned German in High School, very little of Spanish and American Sign Language.

If you had to escape your country immediately, what's the one thing you'd take with you?
Probably Dan, and we would go to Germany. He has always wanted to go there.

Who is the one clannie you really miss?
Lizbeth, Karen Angel, Skills2Quest, and Ragulu. The Clannies that played when I joined and left RS2.

What's your first memory of the clan?
When I first met them and they were all talking about Dan and how they thought it was so cool that we were brother and sister playing together.

August 2019 023.jpg

Coffee or tea?
Iced Sweet Tea.

Which is the most interesting God? Why?
Guthix, because he made players appear! (Youtube: Runescape Gods Exposed)

August 2019 024.png

Best thing of Clan Quest?
The People that make it so special, welcoming, helpful, and fun.

THE ALEX 43 SECTION BECAUSE WHY NOT

Did you find it yet?
No.

Where was it?
I can’t find it.

Are you going to take good care of it this time?
If I find it, yes.

Do you have a new place for it?
I will make one.

Is this place safe?
It will be.

Would it last a long time if it stayed there forgotten?
I hope I don’t forget about it again.

Do you need help?
Yes, it would be helpful if you stop asking questions

Is this a good idea?
Yes.

Can you say that with confidence?
I thought I had already said that with confidence.

Is this how it's going to be?
Yes, because we are finally done with your questions.


BACK TO CHOTO

What’s it like being the sister to the legendary Sk8r_Dan_Man?
Really? Legendary?! I wouldn’t say that unless he plays more often. IRL though, He has helped me more than you would ever know. He practically raised me. We spend too much time together. I know everything about him.

And what’s it like for him to be the brother to the legendary Francine?
“-It’s not an easy job, but someone’s gotta do it”

How was the Song of the Elves experiment? Will you organize that in voice chat again?
Dan and I are so busy, but so far we are about halfway through the quest, we are done with the light puzzle in the grand library. I wish more people were available at the time we started it. That’s the hardest part about making an event because we are all in different time zones. When we started, Dan said that no one cares about doing the quest with us, I think otherwise. Please let him know if you were interested to prove him wrong. Why were you interested? I want to make an event where we can get together at least once a month. Dan did create a game of tag in OSRS with a Cabbage Shield, don’t know who is it though.

[Editor’s note: Tell him he is absolutely wrong!]

How cool was to get Legend’s Cape in RuneScape Classic? What can you tell me about the classic adventures?
Dan was the only one that played Classic. He got the Legends Cape before it went down. I am proud of him. He tells me stories all the time about how when you are attacked by an aggressive monster that you have to finish the combat, you can't run away. I would have died so many times.

Are you still working on feminism topics? Wanna share something about that?
I took Feminist Liturature and Women History Classes in college. I became very interested in feminism and women empowerment because of them. Thanks to everyone that was involved in my surveys, I passed both classes.

August 2019 026.png

What is the meaning of life?

This is deep. Well, to start, I think if you think about this question for too long, you might just go insane, because of so many possibilities. There is no definite answer. I think it’s just better not to even think about it. Just take one day at a time and live for the longest you can. Be safe and make good choices. Enjoy the life you are given and the family you are born into. Make sure to live life at its fullest. Practice random acts of kindness and you will feel better about yourself. Be Nice, because otherwise you are wasting yours and others time with your aggressive and annoying attitude. It’s honestly not hard to “treat others the way you want to be treated.”

GENERAL

What are you currently studying?
I first decided to study a Bachelors in Nursing for the one reason that I liked helping those in need. After taking the first core Nursing classes, I knew it wasn’t for me. I didn’t like asking the difficult questions or touching those who were sick. However, I do enjoy the Biology part, learning how my whole body worked. I then changed my major to Academic Exploration and took a well needed class to focus on me in search of my purposeful career. As of now, I will soon take classes for a Liberal Arts Degree which is like creating my own degree. I choose to have a little of each in Communications, Business, and Sociology. I don’t know what I will do with the degree, that is my next step to figure out. My whole family asks this question all the time, and it has been pretty hard to describe it to him.

What do you do for a living?
Being a full-time Daughter, Sister, and Aunt.

What's your favourite sport?
Tennis, I have played since I was 8 when my sister was on the High School team. I then was on the tennis team in high school and decided to play in college for 2 years. I have recently dropped to focus on my academics. I’d rather play singles than doubles, and I would say I’m at intermediate level.

August 2019 016.jpg

Which are your favourite childhood cartoons?
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants
Absorbent and yellow and porous is he Spongebob Squarepants
If nautical nonsense be something you wish Spongebob Squarepants
Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob Squarepants   Spongebob Squarepants  
Spongebob Squarepants Spongebob Squarepants

I honestly didn’t like that many cartoons. Tom and Jerry, Teen Titans, and Kim Possible were not on as much as Spongebob.

August 2019 017.png

If you could have any super power other than invincibility, what would you choose and why?
I have always thought about if I had super speed because I would have to eat a lot of calories and I love eating. I would also love to reduce travel time. I also enjoy watching the Flash TV show.

What are your favourite outdoor activities?
I don't really like being outside. Most of the time I'm inside. However, I do enjoy Camping outside, Campfires, playing in the snow, Fourwheeler rides, Raking Leaves, and having a Picnic.

Which is your favourite movie?
There are too many, but what I can think of right now is, The Proposal, Forrest Gump, and La La Land. My favorite TV shows are Teen Wolf, Shadowhunters, and The DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

August 2019 018.png

What sort of music and artists do you listen to?
When I was younger, I was all about Country Music, like my family was. When I got into High School, I became more interested in Pop music. Now, I honestly enjoy listening to anything except Rap or anything mixed with Rap. Specifically, I’m into the Jonas Brothers as of right now.

Which books would you recommend?
I don’t read many books. I have never enjoyed reading as a hobby. I'll be watching the movie when it comes out.

What's your favourite type of food?
Itallian and Mexican. I like Pasta, Pizza, Quesadillas, and Tacos. My Choice in Fast food is either Subway or Arby’s. I also love to have Mac and Cheese with BBQ sauce. I put mac and cheese on my shredded BBQ pork sandwiches.

Do you prefer mom's food or restaurant food?
I would have to say Moms food whenever she does NOT make Hamburger Helper and say restaurant or Fast Food if she does make Hamburger Helper. I love her Meatloaf and Chili the most..


GAMING

Which are your favourite games?
OSRS Runescape, Sims, Minecraft, Munchkin, Risk, Monopoly, Scrabble, Crash Bandicoot, Ratchet and Clank, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Mario Brothers, Pokemon, and Card Games

August 2019 019.png

What are your favourite video game genres?
Adventure, Life Simulation, Party Games, and Logic Games.

Which was the most difficult video game you ever beat?
I probably only beaten one game and that was Guitar Hero 1 & 2 on Medium Difficulty.

What's the toughest thing you've ever accomplished in a video game?
Five Stars on all songs on Medium Difficulty on Guitar Hero 1.

When playing with friends, do you prefer video games or tabletop games, and why do you prefer one over the other?
Tabletop Games because then everyone can play. I only have a PS2, so you can only have two players at a time.


RUNESCAPE

What's your favourite skill?
Farming, because it is not a grinding skill, you do a run and then come back to it later.

August 2019 020.png

What's your favourite quest?
Never could decide on a favorite, I like most of the milestone quests like Legends, Heroes, and RFD.

When did you start playing?
Around the time quick chat came out in 2009. Dan was very protective of me during my childhood. He wouldn’t allow me to have an account where I could tell strangers anything. I obviously understand now, but when I turned 13, I was too excited to actually talk to others.

What was your very first accomplishment cape?
Quest Cape, Duh! I wasnt that accomplished in RS3, I was in Middle school at the time and didn’t enjoy it as much as Dan. But when OSRS came out, I was more about it than Dan. I got my First Accomplishment cape in OSRS with Dan on October 22, 2015.

You get 30 seconds of full attention from all employees of Jagex. What do you say?
I don't know what I would say to be honest. Dan would say the Artisan Skill would have been a great skill if they had developed it better when they polled it. He would have also argue that an Auction house would have been better than the GE that has predetermined prices. He would also go on a rant on about how EOC has ruined the game that eventually he would be carried out by Security.

August 2019 021.jpg

You get a ticket to visit Gielinor IRL. Where do you go first?
The Grand Tree, because its HUGE!


GENERAL PART 2

What are your biggest dreams in life?
I am the youngest of my family, so the main focus my whole life was knowing everything about them. I wanted to be just like my older siblings. I never had my own realistic dreams or aspirations. Maybe one when I was obsessed with Hannah Montana, being a popstar myself. When I was a kid, I remember I wanted to be a teacher because I had some great ones myself.

If you could have any 3 animals in the world (only real animals, no fictional), which would you pick?
A dog, cat, and hamster. They are easy to take care of.

If you had to give up one of your senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste) which one would you pick?
Smell for sure. I would then not be bothered by farts, burps, and other odd smells. I would be invincible!!!!

How would you describe yourself to others?
The nicest person you would ever meet. I try to keep the calm by keeping my opinions to myself. I don’t want to upset anyone. I also like to be helpful in anyway I can. I can be very persistent during cleaning too, Dan doesn’t like this about me.

What is your most used item in your daily life?
My Fitbit, phone, and laptop.

Will you go to RuneFest this year?
I’m not really up for traveling at all. Never left the USA. I just feel comfortable here and not up for any sort of change. This is where my family is.

If I were to visit your country, what do you think I should do first?
Drive on the RIGHT side of the road. [Editor’s note: LMAO I’m not british]

What are your favourite cities/locations, both in RS and in real life?
Lately I have spent most of my time at the new Farming Guild. When It came out in January I was level 84 Farming, Now, I’m at level 94!! I have also done 180 contracts and killed the hespori 30 times with a personal best time of 1:19. I have received the Bottomless compost bucket on my 6th and 30th kill. IRL, it's probably at home in my bed.

Do you have a motto or a favourite phrase? If so, which is it?
Not really. I do like “Treat others the way you want to be treated,” and “Everything happens for a reason.”

Do you play an instrument? If not, which instrument/s would you like to learn?
I played a Clarinet in Middle School Band in 2010-2013. Never played it since.

August 2019 022.jpg

Tell us the story behind your name!
My oldest sibling’s first and middle Name starts with an A. From then on my siblings went in Alphabetical Order. I am the Sixth Born so they had to think of a name that started with an F. My siblings were watching Arthur, the TV show, and his little sister’s name is Francine. That's where I get my name from. If I was a boy, it would have been Frank. My middle name is Fay, it stands for Faith. “1225” comes from my birthday, yes, on Christmas. I have only gotten double presents from family. I do enjoy it much more than others. I have met other people born on Christmas or close to it, and their family doesn’t celebrate it as special as mine does.

How many languages do you speak? Which one would you like to learn?
English. Learned German in High School, very little of Spanish and American Sign Language.

If you had to escape your country immediately, what's the one thing you'd take with you?
Probably Dan, and we would go to Germany. He has always wanted to go there.

Who is the one clannie you really miss?
Lizbeth, Karen Angel, Skills2Quest, and Ragulu. The Clannies that played when I joined and left RS2.

What's your first memory of the clan?
When I first met them and they were all talking about Dan and how they thought it was so cool that we were brother and sister playing together.

August 2019 023.jpg

Coffee or tea?
Iced Sweet Tea.

Which is the most interesting God? Why?
Guthix, because he made players appear! (Youtube: Runescape Gods Exposed)

Best thing of Clan Quest?
The People that make it so special, welcoming, helpful, and fun.

I can’t find it.

Are you going to take good care of it this time?
If I find it, yes.

The Last Elegy

A Clan Quest story

August 2019 027.jpg

Chapter 11

Tyco clenshed his teeth as he leaned onto the pillar. The artifact lied on the floor, the weight had become too much for him under these circumstances. The anger made him bite his lip as he had followed Kitty’s last words. How much he didn’t want to let it go, there was reason behind it. And listening to that reason seemed so...easy.
He tore another piece of his robe and strapped it around his torso. Another drip fell onto the floor. It had been a mistake not to attend the wound the moment he aquired it, but the meeting with Kitty had put him on the run. Or at least as fast as he could move in this state.

A final round and tightening would do for now, but he could already see the elven cloth showing a hint of red. Another drop fell, this time from his helm. Tyco swiped the sweat with his left arm and grabbed the artifact with the right. To his surprise it slipped from his hand as he tried to grab it. It rolled to the side and the elf noticed that his hand was a bit pale. Thinking about it, he had been resting for a while now but he still hadn’t recovered.
Last chance. Come out.
If the elf had any color left on his face then it just disappeared. He didn’t dare to peek behind the pillar. He already knew what was behind it. His ears twitched and he felt a shiver along his spine, as if a weapon had been drawn. A new drip fell, but he didn’t wipe away the sweat this time. He had to do something.
Your choice. Don’t move.
Tyco felt as his body stiffened at an instant. Now he knew it was some kind of magic behind this. He tried to take a step, but his feet wouldn’t move away from the pillar. He was out of options.

Kitty was disappointed. He would have prefered if the elf had struggled a bit more, or at least tried to beg for his miserable life. Maybe he should have encouraged him more, giving him a sliver of hope that there was a way. People were ready to suffer so much longer and so much deeper if they believed there was hope. And Kitty knew that prey with hope gave a better chase. But alas, that wasn’t the case today.

Kitty exposed his claws and did what had to be done. In one swipe his paw rounded the pillar and impaled the elf on the other side. To his surprise the sound of shattering bricks filled the room and he peeked on the other side. The artifact was on the floor, along with elven blood and pieces of elven fabric. But no sign of the elf, although he had been there seconds ago. Where….

Then everything happened so quickly. Something fell atop the beast and as Kitty looked up Tyco drove both his crystal daggers into the back of the beast. Kitty let out a deafening roar and span around. Unable to maintain a grip, the elf fell and rolled around as he hit the floor, eventually stopping on his stomach. His helm of Netiznot let out a metallic sound as it protected the elf’s head from the floor. As Tyco groaned and looked up, two murderous eyes looked straight at him. The following words were nothing more than a whipser, but couldn’t have been clearer.
Forget killing you. I will slowly remove your spine until your soul screams out to Ichlarin himself.
The next second a paw was on top of him and the elf felt a slight pain as Kitty placed the tip of his claw on top of his shoulder blade.
Stop beating.
Tyco felt a sharp pain as something inside him seemed to have failed. Fear and panic started to overwhelm him. Gathering the very little strength he had, he grasped his fingertips against teh ground and crawled forward. He didn’t come far as the paw imediatelly pushed him even harder onto the ground. Tyco blinked as the humidity started to gather around his eyes. He blinked again, only to realize it wasn’t the humidity. It was him losing his sight.

The little willpower he had left disappeared. He tried to escape, flailing his arms and legs, all in vain as the paw pressed harder. As his limbs were drained of energy and eventually calmed down, Tyco did the only thing he could. He screamed.

It wasn’t the manly roar of a fremennik, not the shout of an average human. It was a clear, high-pitched resonating sound that seemed to resonate with the air itself. And as the air left his lungs the intensity rose.
Suddenly the weight disappeared from his back and Tyco felt something beating inside of him. He stopped screaming and started to gasp for air while grabbing his chest really hard, while slowly rolling over to back. As his eyes looked up, he saw Kitty on his back legs, trying to reach his own back with a pained expression. As the echo faded away into the darkness the beast gave up and turned once again towards the elf, this time with an even more murderous expression. It was then Tyco noticed the handles. His crystal daggers had dug deep into Kitty’s back, sticking out and faintly resonating to the subsiding echo of the elf. Kitty launched himself forward, this time to give the elf a swift death. Tyco took the deepest breath he could muster and screamed his lungs out.

Whoever said that cats always lands on their paws had apparently never seen this scenario. As the chant once again filled the air the daggers began resonating with high intensity, almost as if they were alive. The claws went from pointing forward to trying to reach its back mid-air. Tyco threw himself aside as Kitty landed ungracefully on the floor, sliding a good distance before stopping. The beast snorted, span around, threw itself on the floor and did everything in its power to remove the source of the great pain. But the more the paws touched the handles, the more the daggers dug themselves deeper into the body. As the air left Tyco’s lungs, his own vision began to darken. A red drip fell on the floor and he noticed He glaced over at his hands, red as the cloth around his torso had become undone.
Kitty went into a frenzy and a few seconds later let out a roar that made the elf’s blood freeze. Or what was left of it. And as the roar silenced the beast and the elf fell on the floor and stopped moving.

It has been 2 years since I started writing this story. Clannies have come and gone during this time and while I have remained steady on the timeline of the story (pre-constitution) the work turned out far larger than I expected. Even if I today have a clear idea of how I want the story and the all the events up until the end (maybe I should hold a storytelling podcast instead?), something that I thought would take 4 months have now dragged far longer than I thought it would. Maybe I will take up the pen again one day, when I feel that the speed of my hand isn’t too slow for the many pages I wish this story to have. But I nevertheless hope that you have enjoyed these chapters and can dream about the future adventures of Clan Quest as a whole and not as individuals.

“Why Should I Care?” - The Importance of Immersion and Investment from Your Players

I have a remarkably short attention span. I forget things often, trail off of conversations, and daydream constantly. I can’t help it. I feel even worse when it’s in the middle of a D&D game that someone else is running. This has happened to me multiple times, drifting off into my own world while someone else is trying to entertain me. One day I sat down and decided that I needed to figure out what was wrong. I took everything I knew from those games and slowly put the pieces together. I didn’t expect the answer I got, but it was staring me in the face the whole time.

I realised that I didn’t care.

August 2019 029.jpg

      Not that I didn’t care for the person running the game, or the people sitting next to me. As self centered as it potentially sounds, I wouldn’t willingly devote several hours of a day to sit with someone around a game table if I didn’t like and care about them personally, however, the DMs I would play with would consistently forget one of the major aspects of storytelling that is unique to tabletop gaming: The need to make your players care. While this is important in other storytelling mediums as well, none other have the direct interaction that D&D provides. In order to keep your audience engaged, they must care about your world, your story, and your NPCs.

      What do I mean by “needing to care” exactly? A word that could also be used is “investment”, but not in the case of the amount of time played in your game, but how willing they are to immerse themselves in your world. DM’s must quickly establish reasons for the players to care about the world and story they’ve created. We’ve all heard stories about players disregarding essential NPCs and focusing more on the random bartender or onion farmer that they recently met. This shows that the DM has not given his or her players enough reasons for them to want to engage with the essential characters, and they would rather speak with someone who was made up on the fly, usually with more humanlike and relatable characteristics.

      Players must care about your world if you wish for them to explore it. To help them feel rooted in your world, discuss with them how their character’s backstory ties them into your setting, and let them help you with crafting parts of it. If you can get them to build things with you, they will immediately become more invested in the world, as they had a hand in creating it. Giving players interesting and unique places to explore also drives investment. If you have developed a reputation of always giving your players diverse locals to chart out, they’ll barely need any incentive to explore the next cool area you have set up for them. These could be unique land formations with interesting and useful flora/fauna, or creative buildings with interesting layouts, or dungeons with unique traps and impressive loot.

      The next thing you must keep in mind is ensuring that your players are interested in your NPCs, both the citizens and the ‘den’-izens of your world. Monster characters can be just as interesting as humanoid characters! You already know your NPCs inside and out, but to your players, these are entirely new people. You may think that they’re the most interesting things in the world, but to your players, they are just passing strangers. This is where the all important “Show, Don’t Tell.” rule comes into play. While it’s different from standard literary usage, the overall idea is still the same. You cannot tell your players that the NPC is interesting and unique, but you must show or demonstrate to them that they interesting and unique. However, be certain that the NPC’s don’t overshadow the player characters and become the dreaded “DM PC” (Dungeon Master Player Character), which I’ll go more in depth on in another article.

      Interesting and unique characters almost always have the following characteristics:
• Has an interesting, yet minor quirk (Left handed, despises a basic household item, is an identical twin etc.)
• Is Opinionated, (Disagrees with certain party members while agreeing with others, unable to work with certain people, holds something in high regard (But isn’t annoying about it) etc.)
• Has a unique appearance (Always wears his outrageous hat, dons fashion from one hundred years ago, wardrobe consists only of grey and blue)

      These qualities do not make a character, but what they do is add flavour onto an already existing character. Your normal ship captain who the players didn’t pay much attention to will become more interesting if you give him memorable and unique attributes. The players will remember a captain with a deranged French accent, refuses to use nautical terms, and always wears an incredibly tight-fitting hat with a faded, salt encrusted feather stuck to it.

      Finally, players must care about your story. This is where the “Session 0” comes in. Working one on one with your players becomes essential to drive player investment. Players who don’t care about the story are more likely to be chaotic and disruptive influences upon story flow and enjoyment for other players. If you and your group enjoy that, then by all means go ahead. This is a co-operative game where everyone contributes, where you win by working together and die by working against one another. However, if you do want players to be engaged and follow your plot hooks, you need to give them a reason why.

      Let’s take an example. If your plot involves the world ending in a catastrophic way, for instance shadows engulf the world, everything killing all life as the players know it, you need to show this happening in places, and the consequences for not stopping it. Perhaps a place they liked to go to was destroyed by these shadows. Perhaps that ship captain they enjoyed talking to and always ferried the party where they needed to go was killed in an attack. While killing NPCs that the players like is a very effective way to make them care, you cannot under any circumstance overuse that. Players who notice you routinely killing off NPCs that they like will become suspicious and no longer engage with your world, finding that it is set against them any time they try to make the best of a social situation. In a world where the protagonists’ helpers and friends regularly get killed off is one without hope, and a hopeless world is no fun for the players. Unless, of course, they asked for a campaign themed around hopelessness, then it would be fitting within the theme and perfectly acceptable.

      Players need to see, understand, and fear the threats and challenges that you place before them. Players who are invested in your world and care about the challenges that they have to overcome will fill in plot holes for you as well. For example, if the players ask themselves: “Why didn’t the Royal Guard protect the emperor the night he was assassinated?” What happens next will entirely depend on their immersion, which is closely tied to the “why do I care?” question. If your players do not care, they will be looking at you for answers. That means that they are not immersed enough in the world, and assume that you, not the characters in your story, made a mistake. Players who are immersed in the story will fill in the gaps themselves with speculation, and you should always let your players speculate. The speculation of players should also always be noted down, and potentially using parts from those speculations will make your players feel clever for figuring parts some of the mystery out.

      Summing up, caring players are immersed players. Immersed players are more likely to think within the bounds of the game, and help you flesh out the parts of the world or the plot as you go along. This is “The Reason Why”. When you start playing during the first session, it’s OK to play slowly for a bit, but before that first game ends, you need to introduce the all-important element: Why the players should care. A threat or interesting challenge of some sort needs to be immediately apparent, so the players will begin to care for your world. A good story has a world that the players want to keep safe, characters that they want to return to, and a plot that they are immersed in. Take care of your players immersion, and they will do all the work for you.

I would like to nominate Doc Hawk and Pop O (and anyone else who was involved in making it happen - I joined in the middle of it, so I may have missed someone!) for their Tears of Guthix event this week. As an old member, Tears of Guthix events are something I consider very special, dating back even before the clan system was introduced in-game, so seeing that start up again and a bunch of people joining brought back some very nice memories  :)

This nomination was seconded by Choto.

Even if there is only one nomination, the judges decide if it is valid and the candidates are fit for the award. Guess what:

Congratulations!
