An interview with Tosols


May 2017 002.png


What is your favourite cosmetic item?
Don't really care for fashionscape, so none

Which skillcape did you get first?
I want to say that Slayer was my first 99. From non combat ones - Farming.
May 2017 003.png

What number am I thinking of between 1 and 10?

Which is your favourite d & d?
Used to do caches, 4 a day. but since got cape, I'm really enjoying God statues.
Where are you from? Can you show us any pictures?
I am from a magical land named Latvia. (Baltic region of Northern Europe)
May 2017 004.jpg

How did you find out about Runescape?
My first character was created in late 2004, or 2005. It was in runescape2 times, at that time a few classmates played it, gave it a shot.played till almost QuestCape, then sold my acc
For this character, i was inbetween jobs, so had tons of free time, and nostalgia kinda kicked in. Tried to make a char on a email, it said already in use. So got back this lovely noob, with almost 0 skills except 34 crafting And here i am, a year later...

(It feels lovely, very comfortable to be a grimy herb!)


You get a ticket to visit Gielinor IRL. Where do you go first?
I would say Armadyl's Tower.
May 2017 005.png

What is your earliest Runescape memory?
Lumbridge cow den. Killing for them hides.

Is there any chance to see you at Runefest 2017?
No, don't have the time for traveling atm.

How would you describe yourself in-game? A wealthy skiller, the rich bankstander or an adventurer perhaps?
A poor grinder. Skill without bonuses or bust, that's what my grandpa used to say!
You get 30 seconds of full attention from all Jmods of Jagex. What do you say?
Probably: Call 911, i'm about to faint.

What is the story behind your name?
Tosols actually in my language means - Car Engine Cooling liquid - It started as a joke when i started to play counter strike source. And kinda migrated to all online games at that time. got so used to it that 13 years later... nothing has changed
May 2017 006.jpg
Recently added Grimy version to it. Which came from good laughs and a bit of meme-age, with birdbrain (Katmak) and Choto

By the way, his name is Tosols, not Torstol Choto (am I the only one getting it right?)
Yes Tyco, you are the only one who can read, but the inside memes must go on!
May 2017 007.png


What part of the world does Tosols grow?
Look above! - Potato land - Latvia!
May 2017 008.jpg

What kind of soil, plant food and water levels does it like?
I am not a fan of one kind of soil, seasonal changes works great for me. Lake/River water works just fine.

How big does it grow and does it prefer a shady or sunny spot?
I'm a rather medium sized plant for my location (1,85m height) I believe i have reached max height and only will grow wider Sun is fun.
May 2017 009.jpg

Can I get a plant for my POH?
Temporary visits from me are available
[Editor’s note: Not without my permission]


When will you become clean tosols?
When I decide to clean him [Choto 3000]
May 2017 010.png


If I were to visit your country, what do you think I should do first?
Probably take a small tour in the capital Riga, especially the old town, it's quite famous for it's architecture, and have a nice Latvian beer on a sunny day.

What are your favourite cities/locations, both in RS and in real life?
Varrock GE. About real life I haven't travelled a lot recently, and when I was younger the interests varied, so I didn't pay much attention to other countrys/cities. I would say my favourite city is where I live, cause it's close enough to civilisation, but without the buzz, and with some nice nature.
Also I did my fair share of Geocaching back in the day, so I have visited every corner of my country, but as the years go, the outstanding place start to blur together.

May 2017 011.jpg

Do you have a motto or a favourite phrase? If so, which is it?
Git Gud! Jokes aside, don't really have a motto or phrase, I don't take all them Facebook motivational speech with a decent background pic seriously, tend to laugh about the person who posts them a lot, especially the ones I know better

Which quest you believe to be the best?
For me it's Dragon slayer. That is the quest which turned me into a member, cause when I did it, there was nothing left to do in f2p. That's the gamechanger.
May 2017 012.png

Do you play an instrument? If not, which instrument/s would you like to learn?
I do not play any instrument. Are tools instruments lel? I have become quite the crafter with construction tools I used to try to pick up guitar. But wasn't enthuziastic about it. Now I only have Guitar Hero game
If I would learn then probably saxophone, or piano. Prolly sax for the sound, and piano for covers.

May 2017 013.jpg

How many languages do you speak? Which one would you like to learn?
I currently speak 3 languages fluently (Speak/Write/Understand) Latvian ofc. cause i'm from here. English cause, well, no need to explain. Russian cause historical reasons/half of the country speaks it and I had a grandmother from 1 side, who spoke it, so learned it very early. And I was at a decent beginner level in German, had to study that in university, but since I haven't used it since the last exam... I don't really add that to my list. I don't know which one I would like to learn atm, if life gives me a purpose, I will learn any language.

How many leaves do you have?
Depends of the season
[Editor’s note: Tosols in autumns]
May 2017 014.png

If you could choose not to be a plant, what would you be?
I would be a rock.
May 2017 015.jpg

What does it feel like, being grimy? Would you like your owner to clean you once in a while?
It feels quite nice. Nah i'm used to being grimy.

Best book ever?
Alexandre Dumas - The Count of Monte Cristo - I believe this is the only book I have read more than once.
May 2017 016.jpg

Jules Verne - Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea - also this comes to mind.
May 2017 017.jpg

Although haven't read any books for like 2-3 years. Before that I did try to go 1 book a month.

May 2017 018.jpg
Tosols with his little babyherb (nephew), the future of RS!

Thank you everyone for asking and reading, and a big thanks to Tosols for such a nice interview. See you next month!

by Santa the Bronzed
*podcast voice* And now it’s time for the reader’s questions!
An interview with Alex the 43rd


May 2017 019.jpg

Alright, Nuli signed me up for this as a prank, but I'm one to see these things through. Let's do this.

Note: Not going to give blame where it's due. If you asked the question, you know it yourself. No bragging rights for anybody being the hero for coming up with these.


What is your favorite RuneScape plushie?

There is no white-dragon plushie, which is a shame because Nuli keeps giving me those wide, yearning eyes. Therefore, my favourite one is the one that's least on fire once I get it.

Which NPC do you think is most likely to ascend to godhood next?

Mahjarrat are already pseudo gods. At least, they can spar with them on fairly even grounds. Maybe they'll rise, maybe not; they are pretty good candidates.

May 2017 020.png

The commonplace answer would be Nex, because she's constantly improving herself despite being of a race that even Jas calls “wisps”. Actually, just about all of Zaros' main followers are at that step. The easier answer would, of course, be the Dragonkin.

Maybe not Kerapec; he's more a researcher, but any other. In an attempt to free themselves from Jas' hold, overpowering her seems to be a tried and tested course of action. And they definitely know how to use the Siphon.

But let's think about this for a moment.

With the Stone of- ... spoilers, y'all... with the Stone of Jas gone now, the ascension to Godhood is going to be considerably more difficult now. Maybe some psycho will fuse themselves with an elder artifact or something and become some sort of monstrosity akin to the mutated dragonkin from V's quest, or Gielinor from Nomad's Elegy.

Are we allowed to call those Gods? Probably not. And bull on you, Sliske, for not counting that Dragonkin as a point for your game.

May 2017 021.png

Therefore, the only [known] way for something to ascend to Godhood is by use of the Siphon. Therefore, we need somebody who's really got it out for one of the existing Gods, enough to take their power and use it for their own. Or kill a lot of people and suck out their souls. I mean, Nomad's still a fair candidate, since we have no idea what's become of him now. Death is yet to get his corpse, and I intended to assist with that.

So, rather than candidates, let's think about the Gods themselves and trace our steps backwards.

May 2017 022.png

Armadyl: Barely any enemies, save for a grudge with Zamorak, but he's already a God.

Saradomin: Lots of enemies. Many of which are mortal fanatics, though. Vanescula might be a candidate, though; I don't doubt she'd like nothing more than to end the God responsible for poisoning a river against her race.

Zamorak: Same as Saradomin. Might get killed by Armadyl, but again, already a God.

Zaros: I doubt he'll let anything or anyone get close to him with the siphon since it's been done before. He's out.

Seren: One would think she has no enemies, but there are some elves who seem to dislike what she did to their race. Particularly one still on Tarddiad. I have my doubts she'll try making an attempt on Seren's life, but it is a potential path for revenge should she snap.

Marimbo / Brassica: If it does happen to them, we'll end up with monstrosities. That's just how storytelling goes.

So there you go. If not Nex, Vanescula or one of the more fanatic elves like Morvran. Everything else powerful enough to consider it either doesn't desire that sort of power or doesn't have anything against the Gods enough to actively make efforts to Siphon them. Except the dragonkin, but again; easy answer.

Which examine text do you like best?

Mine. Because I can modify it. Best kind of text ever.

Have you bought any RuneScape merchandise?

Link to shop

Bought a hat. Armadyl hat. At Runefest 2015. Not off the website. Directly from a Jagex shopkeeper straight from their stock of 10. That counts.

May 2017 023.png

What do you spend most of your in-game time on?

Usually whatever I feel like doing. It took me 15 fun years to get my max cape. That's how you play a game properly. Nowdays, it's bossing and treasure trails. Need to make money to get rich so I can do both more efficiently.

Clan Member Misc 001.png

Which of the signature heroes (aside from yourself of course) most represents your views?

(Xenia, The Raptor, Ariane, Sir Owen, Ozan, Linza)

Despite relating to Xenia a bit more than the rest, I appreciate Ozan's sense of humour and taking everything serious with a bit of humour. Interestingly enough, it helps maintain a clear mind when you're able to smile at something, no matter what it is. Raptor's just in it for the gains. Pretty sure that's Max under all that armour when he's not in Varrock. Speech difference is because he can barely breathe under it all.

May 2017 025.png

And which of the signature hero quests did you enjoy the most and why?

(Song from the Depths, The Death of Chivalry, Stolen Hearts, Diamond in the Rough, Rune Mysteries/Memories, Heart of Stone, The Blood Pact, Carnillean Rising, Deadliest Catch, Kindred Spirits, Nomad's Elegy, Sliske's Endgame)

I would've given it to Sliske's Endgame, but as incredibly and satisfyingly epic as the final battle was, the one thing that got me was the arena itself. The fight took place in a large boring hole in the ground. Just totally took away from everything.

May 2017 026.png

If it was still up on that platform as it began crumbling away into the giant well of anima from the blast, that would've made the final battle much more epic, and it could've been used as a battle mechanic altogether to make the fight way more dynamic. A real shame. Hopefully they'll remake it and allow us to play it again. That would be top.

Instead, I'm giving this one to Nomad's Elegy. Fantastic build-up, considerable effort just to get to the final encounter, and once the final encounter was had, it wasn't just a straight-up fight to the death. There were sections, in which I controlled all the heroes to weaken the final boss more and more until the final strike. And the arena; we're fighting on a slim bridge overtop a giant anomaly that reaches up and slaps at us. Dynamic! Epic! Enjoyment!

May 2017 027.png

If you had to pick a (most/least) favorite RS cinematic or cutscene from Jagex, which would it be and why?

I'd pick my most favourite cinematic or cutscene, because I don't like being negative. I like to give praise and respect where it's deserved, rather than diss on things I disliked. However, I do like to offer constructive criticism to the things that, in my opinion, don't really work.

May 2017 028.png

On an entirely unrelated note, my actual most favourite cut-scene is the one where Zaros and Zamorak Onslaught each other to the point it looks more like Zamorak's getting a head massage rather than brutally eviscerated. Hilarious.

This is a question. Interpret it as you wish and answer accordingly.

You are a filthy liar and I no longer trust or respect you.

May 2017 029.png


You get a ticket to visit Gielinor IRL. Where do you go first?

I cannot accurately answer this question as you may expect because of its circumstances.

First, you do not at all mention skills, items, or bank standing, so I will assume I have none of these.

Second, you do not mention quest completion and accessibility, so I will assume that nothing has been completed, which effectively puts me in the Alternate Dimension Runescape.

Third, time-line hasn't been specified, so I will assume the beginning of Gielinor.

May 2017 030.png

In which case, the first place I would visit would be the field and forest with the most raw resources and food there is with a freshwater spring close-by. Because in this circumstance, nothing else exists. Cities haven't been built, there was no God influence, Guthix hasn't arrived yet, unicorns haven't manifested, etc.

The Elder Gods had just finished creating the thing, and it would be some time before life starts to grow and thrive, so to ensure I do not starve before this happens, I'll probably be left to bring as much rations as I can from my original location and start farming the fudge out of the land until I'm stable. Then, I live out my stay as well as I can.

May 2017 031.png

Can't guarantee I'll still be sane after however many days of loneliness before Guthix finally arrives with the first humans. Maybe I'll visit the Tok-haar and adapt their language, but something tells me they won't have much to talk about.

What is your earliest Runescape memory?

Lumbridge. Scorpions and Guards were some of the most challenging monsters the game had to offer. If you could kill a guard, people appreciated you because they would stop people from PvPing in Varrock (and they hit really darn hard). Start fighting the guards, and suddenly pandemonium erupts around you. Glorious.

May 2017 032.png

I also remember escorting a random newbie through the sewers on RSC. I told him not to climb the ladder, as the bear did more damage than the skeletons. He climbed up. And died. And I got free stuff. Wasn't really loyal to him, but he did have a few choice words.

Is there any chance to see you at Runefest 2017?

If I somehow get a free plane ticket, it's likely. However, I'll probably be in China training kung fu under one of the greatest living martial arts masters IRL at that time, so maybe next year.

May 2017 033.png

How would you describe yourself in-game? Wealthy skiller, a comedian on genocide runs or an adventurer perhaps?

A Watcher. Simple as that. I don't specialize in anything. I'm not a good bosser, I don't PK, and I don't have zillions of exp. I'm simply another player. An observer. A Watcher.

May 2017 034.png

You get 30 seconds of full attention from all Jmods of Jagex. What do you say?

Thank you for hiring me. I'm looking forward to working with all of you. (One day, folks. One day...)

May 2017 035.png

The remaining time will be spent getting everyone either to dance or do Tai Qi together. Hopefully improve the existing rest emote.



Not a question. You should be ashamed. Go sit in the corner. Think about what you've done.

May 2017 036.png


What is your RuneScape philosophy?

It's a game. You play it for fun. If you're not having fun, you're not playing it right. Go read a book. Or take up swing dancing.

Do you have any plans to go for Master Quest Cape?

I do, yes. Gradually, when I feel like it. Actually getting it, however, is another story.

What's one hobby that everyone should pick up?

Martial arts. Not for being able to fight, though; that's merely a side-effect. You'll understand after you practice it for a while.

Will Clan Quest be introduced to Dex and Manya?

A very interesting non-generic question! You get points!

May 2017 037.png

I haven't seen Manya for years. Last I heard of him, he was wandering some vast desert somewhere on the other end of... at this point, I can only guess “galaxy”. He's either dead or so into his adventure that he's completely forgotten who I am. Makes sense; we only really knew each other for a few months.

As for Dex, he comes and goes at times. This isn't really his original world, after all, and he's been able to return to it for a while now. Occasionally he stops in just to mess with me; we don't really go on adventures anymore. He's got a considerably higher purpose now. Something to do with being assistant to the Divine Administrators; I dunno. He eats well, at least.

So, it's just Nuli and I here at the island chapel. No complaints from either of us. Well, at least I hope not from Nuli. The inability to speak leaves a lot to be interpreted through subtle emotion.

May 2017 038.png


Do you fashionscape?

Only when something comes out that looks better than what I'm currently wearing. It's been a while since last time.

What is your favourite skill to train?

Construction's my favourite skill. My favourite skill to actually train, though, is slayer. Because bossing and whatnot. Good fun.

Where are you actually from?

No idea. I always figured the mind manifested consciousness through a series of chemical reactions and electronic pulses, but I'm led to believe that what accumulates into a “soul” actually came from some cosmic nether-region that slides into reality via the attraction of an empty majiya vessel.

May 2017 039.png

Ask Dex. He can explain it better than I can.

Which RS god did you align with in Endgame? any particular reason why?

I sided with Armadyl simply because I thought that our relationship together were more along the lines of battle-brothers rather than boss and servant. Despite being a God, he always respected me as I interacted with him, just as much as I respected him for having gone through lifetimes of experience. The majority of the others saw me either as a tool or an underling.

May 2017 040.png

Didn't know I was supposed to let him win the race at the end, though. Great job, story-tellers; forcing our characters to betray our Gods at the end. I expected my character to make Sliske call Armadyl back since we were a team and all. You know, as the entire start of the quest was meant to develop. I demand the ability to replay this quest! With a much better final battle arena!

Also, Saradomin hates my guts now. I may have killed him in some alternate universe or something.

How long have you been in the clan for?

Since Runefest 2015, so... two years, thereabouts? I dunno. I could check the “Joined” tab underneath my account name on the forum, but since you're the one asking me that question, I'm not going to extend that effort either. Lazy noob.

What is your go-to pvming load out?

Strongest weapons I have, strongest armor I have, depending on what I'm actually up against. If I need to multi-style, I usually use hybrid armour. If they're relatively weak enemies, I use whatever either doesn't degrade or whatever needs the invention levels.

Do you have any skilling pets? If so, which ones? and if not, which one do you want most?

Only Willow. I want Rue. Plain and simple. Runecrafting sucks.

May 2017 041.png

Choto 2:

When did you start playing?

2001. ... yeah. Pretty much started playing a week or so after Runescape itself was first released. This was before they actually had world numbers.

What was your very first accomplishment cape?

Quest Point Cape. Over, and over, and over.

May 2017 042.png

If I were to visit your country, what do you think I should do first?

First, mind the snow. Second, make sure you can respect everyone you see; including those on the streets who missed this step. Third, smile. Often.

May 2017 043.png

Once that's done, shop a lot and try out different local restaurants that the hotel guidebooks don't mention. Darn money-grabbers...

What are your favourite cities/locations, both in RS and in real life?

In Runescape, I'm going to go with Senntisten. Surprise, it's not Priffdinas.

Reason being; it sounded like a very interesting city at the time, being ruled over by the Mahjarrat, with many different creatures and beings living there. Vampyres, Demons, humans, etc. I'm imagining that it spanned at least half the kharidian desert, making it at least twice the size of the elven city.

Probably not the safest and healthiest place to live, but most definitely one of the most interesting.

Do you have a motto or a favourite phrase? If so, which is it?

Leave no evidence.

Which quest you believe to be the best?

One Small Favour. No competition. Started and trained an OSRS account just to play through it again. Totally worth it.

May 2017 044.png

Do you have a very expensive item (party hat, for instance)? If so, do you remember your reaction when you obtained it?

Used to have a red partyhat. Bought it for 40,000 coins. Traded it for an amulet of glory and dragon battleaxe. Mind, this was in the first few months when members first came out, so that was its worth.

Then I got a red and a blue halloween mask when they dropped. Still have them both. Same with Santa Hat, bunny ears, scythe, etc.

Obtaining my multicannon, then abyssal whip, then Saradomin Godsword, then Noxious Scythe were all momentous occasions for me. I was excited to try them out and deal death. And boy, did I. Next up; tier 92 something. Gotta learn to fight Telos first for that one, though.

Do you play an instrument? If not, which instrument/s would you like to learn?

I can strum a few chords on the guitar or pretend to improvise a piano. Would like to learn either or, but I've yet to practice commitment.

Tell us the story behind your name!

There were three of us when we started, brother, friend, and myself. We wanted to be able to add each other to our friends lists easily, so we picked simple names. I was originally Alex 57 (we all used 57, picked out pretty much at random), but I forgot the password, and you had to directly email the Gower brothers to get it reset, so because I didn't want to bug them, I made Alex 43 instead (only really lost a couple days of training; no big deal).

Since then, well, it pretty much stuck. Tried changing it once to my character's real name, Allezyamos, but that caused everybody to cry, so I swapped it back.

How many languages do you speak? Which one would you like to learn?

English, some Mandarin Chinese, and a dozen programming languages. I'd like to learn to read Japanese one day so I don't have to wait for my favourite mangas to get typeset.

Why do you dislike quick chat so much? It's trying to love you :c

Alright, I'll explain it again. First, here's an example from one of my past accomplishments:

My Construction level is 299.
My Construction level is 300.

My thought process goes like this:

1: First, why are you telling us your construction level? Are you offering to assist somebody else in the chat? Nobody was asking for an effigy assist, or for someone to help them build a stainless onyx throne. Seems very off-topic, and by extension, distracting.

2: Then, I wonder which is it? Is it 299 or 300? Already, quick chat has given me information that directly contradicts itself, as 299 != 300. In other words, at some point, it has lied to me. It has betrayed my trust.

3: OK, quick-chat is not supposed to lie. Or rather, it's not programmed to lie. It must be telling the truth. Therefore, I am wrong. I've demeaned myself, and now I feel worse about myself. Thanks a lot for that.

4: Next, I wonder: why's he using quick-chat? The reason people are confined to using quick-chat is because they had lied about something. Or advertized malicious websites, or broken the rules. This person who is using quick-chat now in this regard, telling us their level when we can easily look it up ourselves or, you know, just outright say it. Therefore, they must have broken the rules, and therefore, I cannot respect them.

5: So, disregarding all of that, I've finally come to the conclusion that this person is trying to subtly indicate to us that they've advanced a level without actually directly telling us. It's basically them going “My level is 299, and now it's 300. Figure that out.” Like they're testing us to see if we're good enough to understand him. Sort of a cry for attention in my opinion. Not very pleasant.

6: Advancing a level is an achievement. A milestone. For gosh sakes, take a moment and just let the world know with your own effort! Make it interesting! “Woohoo, just got level 300 construction!”, or “At long last, level 300 construction!”, or “Level 300 contruction, y'all! Now I can build a Moon Cannon in my Astonomy Tower!”. Using quick-chat basically means you're using a minimal effort to advertise your achievement, which leads me to believe you're not overly excited about your own progress. That's not a healthy way to live.

7: Takes two lines of messages instead of one. Chat spam. Pitiful excuse, sure, but do you deny it?

8: If you're using quick-chat just because quick-chat doesn't lie, that's sort of a subtle indication that either: you don't believe that we trust you to tell the truth about your levels you don't trust yourself to not make a mistake and accidentally type the wrong level if you were to do it manually you believe that we require hard evidence that your level has, in fact, been updated, simply because it's super-important to us that your level is now what it is, and our very lives will now be changed for the better

I can add to this list, but it's not going to make it any better.

9: And finally, the biggest, most intense reason of them all:

Quick-chat doesn't have an “I just got level [#] [skill]!” option.

After all this time. Such a simple, obvious solution, and we all prefer to take this complicated route? Unbelievable!

So yeah. That's my reasoning. Now, thanks to you guys, whenever somebody uses quick-chat to indicate their level, I congratulate them on that. And I'm a fast typer. It's your own fault.

What is your level in Smithing? (Quick chat reply only)

RSMV Review

Silvernova, one of the rising stars in the RSMV community. This one is Heathens by twenty one pilots. His colouring is nice, the beats are nice, has lots of sgroup sync shots and he uses RS3. But the usage of orb of oculus makes the words look really small and at times hard to read. I'm not a fan of the song, and there is no storyline progression. But I'm sure some of you would appreciate this one.

Bulletin - May 2017

May has entered the stage, and what a month it is. With Shattered Worlds and the Double Experience weekend, we should have no problem getting through the month, after which Menaphos will be waiting for us in June. Join me in this bulletin to find out what we as a clan will be doing this month.

Double XP weekend
A double experience weekend has been announced for 19-22 May. It's the perfect time to get your last requirements for Menaphos in, or maybe make some progress towards 99s, 120s, and other goals. It is also traditionally a weekend with many Clan Questers online, and even some less active members returning. Let's make sure that everybody feels welcome and have a good time.

I will be hosting some special events to break through the grind, and we will be focusing on the social skilling aspects to make sure that we make the most out of the double experience weekend! We will also - of course - be keeping track of all your skilling gains, so get ready for a bit of healthy competition along the way.

I would like to remind all Avatar Wardens that avatars are there to benefit the entire clan. Please be considerate when taking out avatars and don't just use them for your own benefit. Prefer using worlds and locations that are used by other members. Dismiss your avatar before logging out so somebody else can take them over. Failure to follow the guidelines can lead to permanent removal of the warden job. If you are interested in becoming an Avatar Warden yourself, check out this thread.

All that remains saying is: happy skilling!

Most of you will probably have noticed the offsite looking a bit odd for about a day earlier this month. This was due to an attempt to update our forums to the latest version of phpBB, so we can more easily migrate it to the new server and with it the new offsite theme. Sadly we ran into some issues and had to revert the changes (and this is why backups are important!). We will be trying again soon, so apologies for any inconvenience you may experience through that.

The process of migrating the website involves quite a few people, each of them having their own real-life responsibilities, which is why I cannot give a solid timeline on when the new offsite will be available, but we're doing the best we can to make it as soon as possible. While we would love to add more functionality right from the start, the offsite will mostly just be a new forum with some information about the clan around it. The new site will be a great framework for new features though, so hopefully we'll be releasing things like an event calendar and member activity log in the months after the initial release.

Shattered Worlds
The big release of this month is Shattered Worlds. In this competitive piece of content you fight and skill your way through challenges. We are keeping track of the best performers in this update within the clan, so show your clannies what you are made of. Depending on the success, we will consider making the Shattered Worlds highscores a permanent feature of the clan and maybe add in some prizes. Please let us know if you would like or dislike this.

Behind the scenes follow-up
Last month I shared some information about the discussion on volunteering efforts within Clan Quest. While it is hard to come up with solid ideas, we have a few changes we want to set in motion in the following months. Since we haven't agreed on any details yet, I don't want to share too much. We are currently focusing on getting the offsite out first, so that we have a solid hub for our clan. After that we'll be moving onwards to other things. (Especially for the one person that asked about it: that includes the clan survey I promised a couple of months back 15- icon wink.gif)

As always: there is always work to do, so if you want to help out the clan in any way, let me know. You don't have to do any of the roles currently available, together we can come up with something you like to do and would be beneficial for the clan.

Word of thanks
We got multiple donations to the clan funds last month, which means we are now once again at a really healthy level. I want to thank these people for their charitable donations!

For those of you unaware: the Event Thugs United (ETU for short) keep a central fund of in-game money to fund events and other clan activities. If you are interested in using some of the money, please get in touch with me or Earth and we'll see how we can help. Event rewards are the main use of money, but if you want to start up some other initiative requiring gp, don't hesitate to ask!

Some more words of thanks
Finally, I found out that last month marked my three year anniversary of being a High Councillor. My life was completely different three years ago on the account to moving to a different country and transitioning in a full-time job (look, I'm a real adult now!). During that time, Clan Quest has always remained a constant right now, and I can't say often enough what a privilege it is to have been put in this position. Thanks all for remaining awesome, and showing what a beautiful family we can create by being inclusive and nice.

That's it from me this week. If you want anything included in the bulletin next month, let me know and I'll give it a go. Until then, happy Scapin'!
