Bulletin - March 2019

Anniversaries
March 2018 was a busy month for Clan Quest which saw a lot of changes to the inner workings of the Clan as a whole. The biggest and farthest reaching of these changes was the ratification of our new Constitution on March 12th. With it saw the implementation of the new "Guild" system, the formation of the Clan Council and promotion of the Low Council to Guild Council. We set up the framework so that we could expand into more games and grow our community.

Where are we, one year later? Clan Quest has founded its second Guild, "Old School Clan Quest", focused on Old School RuneScape, while there have been several conversations about expanding into even more games. While we have not yet expanded our community into more games, the Clan Council has begun making additional changes and plans to help with this. The first of these changes are the reorganization of our Discord server, which you can read more about in the next section.

March is also noteworthy as it is the anniversary of Shane's promotion to the Clan Council! He was given the rank on March 11th, 2018 so that he could better help with the development of our website, an endeavor he was already taking charge on. Happy anniversary, Shane!

Discord Changes
As announced on both Discord and the forums, changes have been made to the layout of our Discord server. We have "broken down" the walls between Guilds, and going forward everyone with access to our Discord server will be able to see and utilize all game-specific channels! This does not mean you have to use them all, and if you do not want to receive notifications from these channels then you can mute it by right clicking the group (or an individual channel) and clicking mute. Additionally, the "Events" and "Spoilers" channels for both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape are being removed, and merged into the respective "General" channels. Discord has recently added a "spoilers" tag to their code, making it possible to discuss them in any channel without worry.

We have also implanted a new general policy on how channels are created. Going forward, we will get creating channels for specific games if about half a dozen people request them. The recently created #nation-states channel was a proof of concept for this, and there will hopefully be more in the future as our gaming interests expand and diversify! There is no official requirement to having these channels created other than having enough people interested to warrant it.

We have made these changes to Discord as part of a larger effort to reduce the amount of bureaucracy in the Clan, and to promote easier expansion to more games and communities. We will be making more changes across the Clan Quest platforms in the coming weeks and months to support this endeavor.

Social Media
Shane is looking for one or two active social media helpers. If you're interested in promoting Clan Quest to the wider internet, RuneScape, and gaming communities, then you should consider signing up! Previous experience with social media and marketing is not required but it is an asset. This will be a collaborative venture to keep members of Clan Quest up to date and showcase ourselves to the world!

And now, a message from Choto:

Hoods all,

More than an announcement, this is a formal apology. The magazine has finally been released almost 2 weeks late. I don't think this has ever happened before, and for me it's extremely embarassing. The worst part of it is that I've been the main reason for the delay, given that the only article that was missing was my interview. I'm really busy with work nowadays, but that is no excuse for what has happened. Now that we're done with this issue, the editor's team will seriously enforce strict deadlines so such tardiness doesn't happen again.

With this said, I hope you enjoy this much delayed issue, see you in a month two weeks!

Article by Sirapyro

One hundred interviews. This is the milestone we break today, just months away from the Clan's 10th anniversary. What can be said, other than that it's been awesome to know who we are, not only as a group, but as individuals. So many names, so many friends we've learnt more about. 87 different people have been featured in Questaholic since 2012, and 12 of them have had a round two. Add Ytse's interview to the NPC Max and you get a three digit number. Thank you all that have made this special section be what it is today. Here's to 100 more!

March 2019 018.jpg

Hoods!

-HOODS!

GENERAL

What are you currently studying?
This question would’ve been valid if asked 3 months ago, given that I have quit my studies. If you asked me back in 2015, international relations would’ve been the answer. History back in 2017, and music the last half of 2018. As you see, I’ve been on the look-out for an appropiate career for a long time.

What do you do for a living?
I am the co-manager of my family restaurant. The name’s Luscofusco, you can search for it on the internet.

March 2019 006.jpg

What's your favourite sport?
I used to play tennis, handball, basketball and football in different periods of life. Tennis was probably my favourite. Nowadays I’m more like: “LOL sports”.

Which are your favourite childhood cartoons?
Took me a while to remember about them, but probably “Courage the cowardly dog”, “The Pink Panther” and “The Adventures of Spiffy McSpoffinberg” were my favourite ones.

If you could have any super power other than invincibility, what would you choose and why?
You know of King Midas? I wanna be like him. Just...you know...don’t turn things into gold. You know what I mean.
Seriously though, I would rather have solutions for world-wide problems like starvation, war, disease, etc.

What are your favourite outdoor activities?
What is...outdoors...precious?!
(I like walking/riding my bike in winter [Summer is hell])

Which is your favourite movie?
Only one? Are you kidding me? Depends so much in genre, origin, year, and so on. I could probably say my favourite movies come from the Balkans, from the hands of Emir Kusturica and Danis Tanovic. ‘Underground’ and ‘No man’s land’ are clear examples.

March 2019 007.jpg

What sort of music and artists do you listen to?
Jazz, classic, rock, blues, reggae and more. Pretty much everything that isn’t new age latin.

What is your favourite book?
Same answer than in the movies question. I would highly recommend Terry Pratchett’s books.

What's your favourite type of food?
Li spaghetti, li maccaroni, li gnocchi...La pasta, bambino!

Do you prefer mom's food or restaurant food?
Well, mom’s food is superb, and dad’s food is restaurant’s food because we kinda have a restaurant so...both?

GAMING

Which are your favourite games?
Commandos, Age of Empires, Rise of Nations, Crusader Kings II, GTA, Half-Life, Minecraft, Mount and Blade, Terraria, Undertale.

What are your favourite video game genres?
Historical, strategy, rpg.

Which was the most difficult video game you ever beat?
Commandos I.

March 2019 008.jpg

What's the toughest thing you've ever accomplished in a video game?
Commandos I and II with their respective expansions in hard mode with all achievements completed.

When playing with friends, do you prefer video games or tabletop games, and why do you prefer one over the other?
I like both. Some situations call for video games, others for some good ol’ tabletop.

RUNESCAPE

What's your favourite skill?
I like bronze. I also like hitting things. I kinda wear bronze armour and an untrimmed smithing cape 24/7. Go guess.

What's your favourite quest?
Cook’s Assistant. That’s where all started.

March 2019 009.png

When did you start playing?
Mid 2007, I was 10 years old.

What was your very first accomplishment cape?
*Stares* You haven’t guessed yet? Quest cape, of course, followed by the Smithing one.

You get 30 seconds of full attention from all employees of Jagex. What do you say?
*Tries to say something important*
*fails*
HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODS

You get a ticket to visit Gielinor IRL. Where do you go first?
The Hoodian Faith HQ. The penguin iceberg is a good choice as well.

THE ALEX 43 SECTION BECAUSE WHY NOT

Did you find it yet?
Yes!

Where was it?
In Popcorn’s bank.

Are you going to take good care of it this time?
He still has it.

Do you have a new place for it?
Yes, lemme recover it first though.

Is this place safe?
Kinda.

Would it last a long time if it stayed there forgotten?
Well, my bank is absolute chaos, so probably.

Do you need help?
Yes please.

Is this a good idea?
Considering we could get banned for hacking an account, probably not.

Can you say that with confidence?
Absolutely.

Is this how it's going to be?
You asked for it.

QUESTIONS FROM THE PEOPLE

Derp
Hoods!
Apparently Shoods is the way to go now.

Are you working on Achievements yet?
Well...I haven’t even started and Sira will kill me :D

Can you untrim my Smithing cape?
Bring me your smithing cape, a set of superior bronze and all your pets and it’s a deal.

Can you give me your Nex pet pls?
March 2019 010.png

Luke
If you weren’t bronze, what would you be instead?
I wouldn’t be.

Also hug me pls <3
Sure, just be aware I haven’t taken my armour off for years.

Tyco
What is your earliest Runescape memory?
Watching a friend play around Port Sarim.

How would you describe yourself, both IRL and in Runescape?
Real life: Already answered somewhere else.
RuneScape: I am known for bringing Dungeoneering aura 2 + ring of wealth to Durzag, for getting lost in Gu’Tanoth, for my untrimmed smithing cape, for having all my pets banked, including the Nex pet I got with a deathtouched dart, for having a bank filled with junk, and God knows for what else. Oh I’m also a big time noob.

March 2019 011.png

What item do you use the most, both IRL and Runescape?
Already answered real life. In RS, my hammer is probably the most used item.

Many months after Runefest, what is your strongest memory from it?
For one second I thought you said “what is your strongest smell from it”. Getting on the wrong train the day I arrived to end up in the centre of London is probably the strongest memory of the journey. The day before RF and opening the surstromming are really close.

What clan-member would you like to visit IRL the most?
It would have to be someone I hadn’t met yet. Leo, Wolffi, Xenon, Santa, Sira, Earth, Kebab, Oza and Were are all good choices. I kinda wanna meet the whole clan to be honest.

Is your city a great place to hold the next Clan Quest gathering?
1: It’s a 13 hour flight and 5 hour ride from London.
2: It’s not even a city.
3: We barely speak spanish.
What do you think? 1- icon biggrin.png

5 years in the future, tell us one thing that has changed with you and one thing that hasn’t changed.
Well, I’m certain I’ll be happier in 5 years from now. And I also know I’ll still be a noob.

Tell us your darkest secret that would make ironmen into bronzemen.
I used to dislike bronze to an extent I would drop it as soon as I got some.

Oza
As someone who has served as chief editor, what do you like most about the magazine and what has kept you motivated to keep working on it for so long?
I believe the magazine is an incredible and unique service we provide as a clan. It’s not a difficult thing to do, but it takes dedication from those who contribute. My favourite part is pinging relentlessly seeing others comment and discuss the articles we publish. I feel we bring joy to the community, and I love it. This will be my 3rd year as editor, and working along with awesome people has kept me motivated to keep on it.

If you could snap your fingers and all your dreams would come true, what would your life look like?
My life would pretty much be the same, but the world would actually be a nice place to live.

If there even are any, name 3 acceptable reasons for xp wasting (you can’t use work or school, it has to be *good* reasons).
Editing the magazine, hanging out with friends and travelling are quite good options if you ask me.

Alex (who else?)
Notice: This is a very, very short selection of questions sent by Alex 43 (He sent 10k questions).

The will to live.

Where do you anticipate will one day be your most expensive twisted amalgamation of dream?
In the dump, with all of Toy Story’s toys.

Diana

Converting you to the Hoodian Faith while you were asleep.

March 2019 013.jpg

GENERAL PART 2

What are your biggest dreams in life?
To be a role-model to others, to be a good guy and to travel around the world.

If you could have any 3 animals in the world (only real animals, no fictional), which would you pick?
A Shiro, a Derp and a Xenon. Wait, only real ones? Ok, a Kebab, a Cireon and a Sira. Add in a Shane and an Urf and we’re done. I would say a Wolffi but those are fake animals that live in imaginary places.

If you had to give up one of your senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste) which one would you pick?
Either smell or taste, smoking has basically destroyed them already, so…

How would you describe yourself to others?
I make mistakes at least three times a day. I’m hard-working, caring and way too noobish.

What is your most used item in your daily life?
My glasses. My computer and my piano are close seconds and thirds.

If I were to visit your country, what do you think I should do first?
Come visit me of course. Also travel from Puerto Almanza to El Angosto (Southern and northernmost points of the country, respectively). Try new food, try dancing the Tango, drink mate and talk to the people.

March 2019 014.jpg

Do you have a motto or a favourite phrase? If so, which is it?
“Omg a Xenon”. “Omg a [instert clannie name here] also applies.

March 2019 015.png

Do you play an instrument? If not, which instrument/s would you like to learn?
The first instrument I learnt to play was the violin, followed by the alto saxophone and then the piano. I only play the piano nowadays though.
I have a banjo and never got my hand on it, I’d love to know how to hold play it.

Tell us the story behind your name!
Again? Go back to the october 2016 issue to find out.

How many languages do you speak? Which one would you like to learn?
Spanish of course because it’s my native language. I kinda handle english as well. I can say “My name is Álvaro” in french and russian. I used to speak catalan when I lived in Spain. I can still read and understand it. Finally, I can understand quite a bit of italian. I’d love to be fluent in russian, and learn some Dzongkha in the meantime.

If you had to escape your country immediately, what's the one thing you'd take with you?
My passport.

Who is the one clannie you really miss?
Kitty, Hardcore Cow, Tosols and Kexy when they go MIA, Will, Borizi, Ch00blet, Dilly, Gloom, Sarah, Irene, Kyra, Marnit, Alaska, Ninja, Doc, Nex, Ona, Suli, Regi, Scy, Snow, StarLord, Solis, Whiskey and maybe some more I can’t remember as of now.

What's your first memory of the clan?
Being invited by Alaska at the Grand Exchange. Kitty was there trying to scare me off.

Coffee or tea?
COFFEE.

What are your favourite cities/locations, both in RS and in real life?
I’ve always dreamnt of travelling through Africa. There are pretty awesome places to go, like the ancient city of Timbuktu, the River Kongo, Adis Abeba, Madagascar, the south african tribal sites, and much more.
RS? Definitely not Priffdinas. I’d love to get lost in Gu’Tanoth.

March 2019 016.jpg

Which is the most interesting God? Why?
The Hood, of course. You don’t need to ask why. You shouldn’t ask why. You WILL NOT ask why.

Best thing of Clan Quest?
The Hoodian Council, shortly followed by the magazine, shortly followed by the people.

What is the meaning of life?
To annoy Sira.
Editor's note: et tu?

Spanish of course because it’s my native language. I kinda handle english as well. I can say “My name is Álvaro” in french and russian. I used to speak catalan when I lived in Spain. I can still read and understand it. Finally, I can understand quite a bit of italian. I’d love to be fluent in russian, and learn some Dzongkha in the meantime.

If you had to escape your country immediately, what's the one thing you'd take with you?
My passport.

Who is the one clannie you really miss?
Kitty, Hardcore Cow, Tosols and Kexy when they go MIA, Will, Borizi, Ch00blet, Dilly, Gloom, Sarah, Irene, Kyra, Marnit, Alaska, Ninja, Doc, Nex, Ona, Suli, Regi, Scy, Snow, StarLord, Solis, Whiskey and maybe some more I can’t remember as of now.

What's your first memory of the clan?
Being invited by Alaska at the Grand Exchange. Kitty was there trying to scare me off.

Coffee or tea?
COFFEE.

What are your favourite cities/locations, both in RS and in real life?
I’ve always dreamnt of travelling through Africa. There are pretty awesome places to go, like the ancient city of Timbuktu, the River Kongo, Adis Abeba, Madagascar, the south african tribal sites, and much more.
RS? Definitely not Priffdinas. I’d love to get lost in Gu’Tanoth.

March 2019 016.jpg

Which is the most interesting God? Why?
The Hood, of course. You don’t need to ask why. You shouldn’t ask why. You WILL NOT ask why.

Best thing of Clan Quest?
The Hoodian Council, shortly followed by the magazine, shortly followed by the people.

What is the meaning of life?
To annoy Sira.
Editor's note: et tu?

FeaturedArticle.png CLAN VOICE CHAT
Clan Quest has had a long voice chat history leading up to the implementation of the official Discord server, dating back as far as 2010, from Ventrillo to Teamspeak and Mumble and back.

On August 3rd, 2010, a Ventrillo server was created by Panda in Luv, the first ever attempt to create a voice chat server for Clan Quest. This was incredibly early on in the Clan's existence, and though it found some success it ultimately did not last. It is unknown exactly when this Ventrillo server was shut down, or how active it was during its time online. Following that, that was a long...

RSMV Review

Hello Santa is back after a pretty long hiatus. With us this month we have Jariouz with a multi-editor project (MEP) done in 2018, Mr Brightside by The Killers. This song has a special place in my heart because it's been done by Arzon before many years ago and has been one of the best ones done by him. Also I can't blame the Europeans for liking this song so much that it stayed on the UK top charts for 14 straight years...

I always liked rsmv2you's editing, he pushes himself a lot in terms of camera effects, and sticks purely with RS3 and OSRS without using any private servers. This one is no exception. Where most people stuck with their old outfits and colour schemes (like myself, smh), he was one of the few to really really adopt the current trend of solomon store, treasure hunter and new-age quest and in game items, as well as go beyond the typical drab colours of black, tan and white. I almost couldn't recognise half the locations. It's nice to see him back, I always look forward to his videos in my sub box.

I think Trey works best with Vengium (RS2 before EOC) because of the nature of his editing style. It has a lot of soft lighting and beats, complementing the song. Not that he doesn't work well with RS3, but then it's just his editing style is more suitable for RS2.

Godcomplex has nice location choices. His graphics were also maxed out, his full screen allows us to fully appreciate the background, and the filters were done well. Very pretty clips.

Jariouz has done his best to overcome the low specs by making super awesome colour edits. I like how he tries to use green screen because many of us forgot how it works in modern video editing tools. His signature outfit is pretty up to date as well.

The Last Elegy

A Clan Quest story

August 2018 006.jpg

Chapter 10

Shane ran. He knew Kitty’s attention would turn towards him the second Tyco would be out of the paw’s reach. After all, it was him that had led the elf here and fooled the beast with the amulet that only loyal followers wear. A fake which had almost fooled him. He had heard the hit of paw against bones and how something flew away as he had turned around and legged it. In his mind he told himself that Tyco should have survived that. Hopefully he had managed to snatch the artifact too. Not that Kitty would let…

Shane stopped running and turned around. There was nothing. No elf or a red-haired beast behind him. The suspicion that had hit him grew into a realization of what had happened. To Kitty the loss of the lapuria head would be higher than ripping the spine off a traitor. And maybe the beast also knew that the elf didn’t knew the way out. Shane bit his lip. He started to fear the worst. Even if he could find the exit, it would have been for nothing if he didn’t led Tyco out alive.
Shane took his eyes off the neverending darkness and searched his backpack. Magazines, runes, a lot of herb seeds and an old smelly bucket. Beneath it was the green compass he was looking for. The way out could now be found . The question now was just how to find the elf.

A sharp and intense pain emerged from his shoulder blades which woke up the elf. He coughed from the shock and opened his eyes. He blinked a few times to ensure that they were open. It was hard to tell in this place. He tried to move and felt the pain again, making him lose his breath. As he breathed in he felt the pain slowly increase as his lungs made his upper body expand, and ease when not in motion. Looking down he could barely see the head of a lapuria, held tight by his both hands. Upon releasing his left hand grip he realized how fast everything had happened, judging by the stiffness of his fingers. Slowly he raised his arm up and tried to feel what has behind him. His fingers walked from nis neck downwards before they stopped at something hard and the pain made him snort. It was rough and sharp, yet brittle with something warm and sticky surrounding it. Tyco slowly started to realize what had happened. He had landed on a pile of bones and the force had shattered them and penetrated his skin.

A crack broke the silence. Tyco looked towards the direction the sound had come from. His ears twitched. There was no time for resting. He clenched his teeth and got up on his legs. A warm feeling spreading down his spine told him this was worse than he thought. But he had to move and so he did, away from the sound of a beast on a hunt.

Kitty was furious. To let himself be fooled by a cheap necklace. And more importantly by Shane. He had been such a good subject, even if he hadn’t always followed Pawfia’s ideals. Such a betrayal would not go unpunished. Kitty could already see the man’s pained expression as his spine would leave the rest of his body.
But that didn’t matter for now. The value of a traitor paled in comparison of the tounge of Pawfia, one of the few relics in his possession. After taking care of the elf he would be sure to use it to track Shane down, in whatever corner of the world he would hide in. Maybe he would even do it personally, a good hunt didn’t come around every day. He was already looking forward to it.

Kitty stopped and bent down. Shattered bones with blood on them laid before him. The beast picked one up, put it in his mouth and started chewing on it. He smiled and spoke to the darkness.
- Did our little elf hurt itself? Such a shame.
Kitty saw a trail of broken bones and drops of blood continue deeper into the darkness. His prey hadn’t even bothered to avoid stepping on the fragile rests of his previous victims. The short distance between the blood on the floor further told him that the elf didn’t have the luxury to run.
- Why are you struggling so hard? It would be easier to lie down and rest.
The trail took a left turn, maybe as an attempt to sneak around him. The blood trail got thicker.
- Or you could just let it go. Why burden yourself to your death when you can barely bear yourself?
The trail went behind a pillar. Kitty didn’t hesitate and put a claw on whatever was on the other side. To his disappointment the sound of brick was heard and he peeked. A small pool of blood revealed that the elf had been resting here, and not too long ago. The trail continued and Kitty could see the it go behind a second pillar. His nose and whiskers told him that he wouldn’t be disappointed this time. He silently sneaked closer and prepared to strike. The hunt would very soon be over.

I'd like to nominate Cireon for the work he put in during his tenure as Head of Clan Council. Also, he's a great bloke in general and I had an amazing time meeting him (and others) in London during the Runefest weekend.


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

Congratulations!
