Quest Kitty, yes, the name that is almost tantamount to Clan Quest. Those of you who have been around since this clan started endearingly know her well. Some may just be familiar with her RS name and the newer ones might ask, "Who?" To quote Draz, "There is one person, however, who should be acknowledged for a significant amount of Clan Quest’s success during its first few months … Quest Kitty. Her activity, personality and sheer “awesomeness” is a testament to what all clan questers aspire towards. I would say she has had the largest impact on Clan Quest of any other non-High Councilor since the clan’s founding."
Let's find out more about our legendary Quest Kitty. Just to let you know, she no longer plays RuneScape, but is still a significant member of this clan.

Still waiting for the "why" answer. *10 hours later * okay, never mind.

Picture of you? =D
I always ask for an IRL photo.
LMAO! Sorry guys, but she sent me her favorite anime character - Yuno Gasai from the anime "Future Diary".
Thank you so much for doing this interview, Kitty. I have never laughed so hard. I really enjoyed your free spirited comments. In all honesty, and I am sure the others would agree, your presence is missed terribly in RuneScape and in Clan Quest. There is no one like our very own Quest Kitty.

Dragonkin and Mahjarrat are not the only dangerous beings in Gielinor! Many Gods have General Class followers still active to this day. Some could destroy cities by themselves and others lead powerful organizations. Either way the following monsters and warriors are especially powerful and important in the Sixth Age as war seems certain.
In Daemonheim there is a clear split between two groups. Those loyal to or serving Bilrach a Zamorakian Mahjarrat and those that oppose him.
For starters Bilrach is loyal to Zamorak and there are 4 main groups of boss monsters Bilrach has "under his command".
The First group is Miscellaneous:
Astea Frostweb - A female mage Bilrach tricked into helping him and then enslaved when she revolted against him.
Icy Bones - A random troll that wandered onto the frozen floors and even though he has no connection with Bilrach defends the land he has staked out as his own.
Luminescent icefiend - A stronger icefiend which apparently evolved inside Daemonheim.
Skeletal Horde - A large group of skeletons and the introduction of the Gorajo, a race of warriors from a neighboring dimension that fight against Bilrach.
Hobgoblin Geomancer - Pretty much the same as Icy Bones, a random above average member of his race that felt compelled to stake out territory in Daemonheim and defend it.
Unholy Cursebearer - Another mage that rebelled against Bilrach except for whatever reason this one died and was brought back to life and enslaved.
Rammernaut - Leader of the Rammernaut Guard, an exceptionally strong group in Daemonheim known for their use of giant mauls.
Lexicus Runewright - Astea Frostweb's lover and partner in her rebellion against Bilrach. Part of their punishment in addition to forced servitude is that they are forever separated on different floors.
Sagittare - An exceptionally powerful ranger/mage, also the first human follower that seems to willingly serve Bilrach.
Skeletal Trio - 3 warriors, one specializing in each side of the combat triangle that died as a result of the Gravecreeper's curse and were necromanced inside Daemonheim and forced into servitude exactly like the Unholy Cursebearer. Their names are Griss, Radgund, and Bellefleur.
Gravecreeper - A grave robber named Atlus Creeper who was cursed to be a zombie for his actions.
Necrolord - A very powerful necromancer and mage. Also the only mage that has ever made a wall of undead to prevent meleeing.
Blink - A crazed human test subject that moves very fast and uses portal magic.
Warped Gulega - A monster brought to serve Bilrach from the Gorajo's home world, however it turns out the monsters were not tamable and hurt Bilrach's progress as much as they helped guard the floors.
Dreadnaut - A warped Rammernaut with a significant power up. However the madness of the warped floors seem to make it as much a danger to his allies as his foes.
The Second group is the Behemoths:
Gluttonous behemoth - One of the few monsters in Gielinor that eats to heal itself, the others being revenants. Guards the Frozen Floors.
Bulwark beast - One of the few monsters in Gielinor that has a protective shell you need to mine, the other being the TokTz-Ket-Dill. Guards the Abandoned Floors.
Stomp - Stomp is a giant like the Queen Black Dragon so the only thing you fight is the head and arms. The rest of its body is in another dimension so to kill it you simply need to turn the portal off which decapitates it... or it would be simple if it didn't drop rocks everywhere. Guards the Furnished Floors.
Runebound behemoth - It appears higher level behemoths have prayer abilities. Runebound can block 100% damage of the styles it prays and if it protects against all 3 styles at once it can use a lightning attack that can kill its opponents in one hit. Guards the Occult Floors.
Hope Devourer - Can suck the will to live out of just about any living creature. Also capable of draining prayer and healing itself like the Hobgoblin Geomancer. Guards the Warped Floors.
The Third group is the Stalkers:
Plane-freezer Lakhrahnaz - Uses ice magic to freeze the area around it making its prey less mobile while it hovers and uses long range attacks. Guards the Frozen Floors.
Night-gazer Khighorahk - Can only be damaged in the light during its first form. The darker it is the higher its defense. This is the first monster in Daemonheim to have a second form. Also the large area exploding attacks it uses make it very risky to fight in close range unless you pay attention. Guards the Abandoned Floors.
Shadow-forger Ihlakhizan - Uses both shadows and light to attack, also acid. It still has the exploding attack from the second level stalker and is equally dangerous with it. Guards the Furnished Floors.
Flesh-spoiler Haasghenahk - A really disturbing monster that pops its own eyeball out to attack you. Also has a second form where its body explodes and you get attacked by its babies. Guards the Occult Floors.
World-gorger Shukarhazh - Similar to Runebound it has 3 altars and you must lower one if you want to deal any damage to it. Guards the Warped Floors.
The Fourth group is the Demons:
To'Kash the Bloodchiller - Demon Guardian of the Frozen floors, uses Ice spells similar to the Zarosian ancient magicks.
Har'Lakk the Riftsplitter - Demon Guardian of the Furnished floors, uses portal magic.
Bal'lak the Pummeller - Demon Guardian of the Abandoned floors, uses gradually increasing defense boosts to become untouchable and uses the acid around him to damage others.
Yk'Lagor the Thunderous - Demon Guardian of the Occult floors, uses magic and melee but also has two special attacks where he uses telekinesis to pull his enemies in next to him and stun them while he heals, and also can cause an earthquake.
Kal'Ger the Warmonger - Demon Guardian of the Warped floors, has mastered just about every tier 11 weapon and can drain turmoil, disable prayers after extended use, has a rage attack, and upon his death uses Wrath/Retribution.
All of these monsters were summoned or gathered and are relatively loyal to Bilrach or enslaved by him and guard the various levels of Daemonheim. It is unlikely they will ever participate in a fight outside of Daemonheim considering their master is dead, however because of how valuable Daemonheim is it is highly likely the fight will come to them.
Bilrach made many enemies in his haste to excavate Daemonheim. These enemies dwell inside Daemonheim and consist of two main groups; Bilrach's slaves, and the Gorajo.
Astea Frostweb and Lexicus Runewright - Unlike the other bosses of Daemonheim they are still alive, and not mindless beasts, and actively rebelled against Bilrach. As a result they were enslaved as lower level bosses. If it is possible to break their curse they are perhaps the only Floor Guardians in Daemonheim that would aid us and give us useful information in our fight against Bilrach.
The Gorajo - Are the other faction present in Daemonheim that stands against Bilrach. As a result his progress was greatly slowed when digging out Daemonheim but he still made it to the bottom eventually. They have strong healing powers and are skilled warriors. The Warped Gulega comes from their home world. They are friendly towards all who oppose Bilrach and in exchange for solving their riddles even open doors for us, or help us loot Bilrach's sinkholes, or heal us at the Skeletal Horde boss. They have paid a heavy price for their fight against Bilrach as most of them died fighting against him and their homeworld became Bilrach's dumping ground for the toxic waste he unearthed as he carved out Daemonheim.
Ramokee Skinweaver - She is the only Gorajo not inside Daemonheim or a Sinkhole. She created the Polypore Dungeon herself and gave life to the fungal creatures within. If she were to find out about the damage done to her homeworld she would likely be greatly angered and certainly not be in support of Bilrach or Zamorak the God her homeworld was nearly destroyed in the name of. Her creatures use highly toxic poison in close range and are all but immune to range attacks so the only way to even begin to damage them is with magic. While this isn't a problem for Mahjarrat whose life force is based on magic their followers on the other hand would have a very hard time coping with an army of fungal monsters.
Smuggler - There are currently 8 Guthixian Guardians. (Cres died but then we became one so the count went back up to 8 again unless Fiara died in The World Wakes in which case there are 7) Either way 3 Guardians remain unknown and these guardians have immense power, some are even stronger than gods and are placed by Guthix to guard important areas. Given that Daemonheim (the ruins above it) were likely built by the Dragonkin (Statues of them on the ground floor, Stone of Jas Icon, Ring of KIN-ship, ect) and whatever is at the bottom of Daemonheim was strong enough to kill a Mahjarrat and even could have killed Thok it is safe to assume Guthix would not want it meddled with. Also the Miscellaneous Journals: Portal Notes, Scrap of Parchment, Letter to Acolyte, the Strange Token, and the M. and Thok letters prove the Smuggler is very closely tied to Guthix and also very strong to resist falling into madness on floor 61.
Moia - For information on Moia see the Mahjarrat section.
Marmaros and Thok - These two members of the Fremennik Dungeoneering group are the only two normal humans to make it to Floor 61 of Daemonheim. Marmaros named most of the things inside Daemonheim and solved the puzzles while Thok killed everything in his path. These two are very impressive very powerful warriors and to have them on your side would be a huge benefit in any battle.
Skaldrun - Is an immortal story teller. He is the only person besides Moia and the Smuggler alive that knows what is at the bottom of Daemonheim on floor 61. He has the ability to allow us to relive memories based on relics we find while dungeoneering. He is incredibly similar to Perjour a scholar for Zaros at the end of the Second age who then served Zamorak in the Third age. Perjour is believed to be dead because of a journal found with a skeleton accounting of his last days, however he deceived Zaros with a fake journal as well and his name literally means "To give false testament" so the possibility exists he could have used the same trick twice.
I hope you enjoyed my guide on the plot and happenings of RuneScape. the content was gathered largely from the Lores and histories section of the main site, in game quests, and runescapewiki. Expect Part 2 next month!

Tired of coleslaw? Here's a way of grilling cabbage that raises this pedestrian veggie to new heights. The leaves melt with the butter and spices, and the barbecue sauce gives it a nice kick. Next time you're cooking some ribs, plop one of these over Indirect heat and let it go.
For the seasoning mix:
To make the seasoning mix: In a small bowl combine the seasoning mix ingredients.
Using a sharp paring knife, remove the core of the cabbage, leaving a cavity about 3 inches deep. Gently pry the cabbage leaves open with your fingertips. Spread the butter in the cavity and between the leaves, and season inside and out with the seasoning mix. Wrap the cabbage in heavy-duty aluminum foil so that all but the cavity end is covered.
Grill the cabbage, cavity end facing up, over Indirect Medium heat until the leaves are tender, 2 to 2 1/2 hours, basting occasionally with the barbecue sauce to prevent the exposed leaves from drying out. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Remove the foil. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
"So there you go, now you have a practical and seems to me, delicious way to deal with the next cabbage bombing!"

Edgeville, W66 - The citizens of Edgeville have been complaining about a new phenomenon going on in and around the Grand Exchange. A lot of adventures use the lodestone in Edgeville to quickly reach the Grand Exchange and the amount of traffic this gives makes it very attractive to promote your clan along this route.
The locals however do not agree with this and sources are telling us that the citizens are planning to fight back. The local general store manager: “People are staying away from our little village because of the vex war going on here. With the Grand Exchange nextdoors it is already hard enough to keep a general store running, but now it is almost impossible to keep my shop running.”

How they whisper their greatest strengths, their desire to be used
For the wielders' desires to be made reality
How often they pass through the hands of many fools
Countless ‘Gods’ that dared to use the weapons for their own goals
How little did they know
The song of the weapons will be sung
Their time to re-make the very reality itself will come
By the desire that came from within many individuals’ souls
The weapons shall sing the song of their creators
The power beckons
Nothing shall escape the power
The power of the Elder Weapons
Not even time and space can escape their might
Realities shall be remade and broken once more
Witness the destruction of countless worlds
Fear the empires of countless wielders
Fear the Elder Weapons
They beckon to be used
Used for what, I hear you ask
Everything and Nothing
That is the truly purpose of the weapons.
Be afraid of the power
Be in awe of the power
forever and ever
until the end.
