Bulletin - October 2018
Runefest I write this bulletin inbetween preparations for Runefest, which is happening in just a few days from now. Sixteen clannies are scheduled to visit Runefest itself, with more to join us for Clan Quest socials on Sunday. We will be sharing our experiences on the Clan Quest Twitter and Facebook, but even better, you can check out the one and only Clan Quest Runefest Hub. If you want to add to the feeds, get in touch with Shane and he can make sure we're including you in the hub.
Also keep an eye out on our website, where we'll be sharing a report and more pictures soon afterwards. If you're around London during the Runefest weekend, it's not yet too late: you're welcome to join the picnic on Friday or the social program on Sunday!
Last year we made a pretty big impact on Runefest. There were Clan Quest t-shirts everywhere. This year will be no different, and we've got some amazing t-shirts ready to look the part during this year's festivities!
As you may see, the logo on the t-shirt is not quite what you may be used to. What's more, the logos all around the website have changed too! This is because we decided we wanted to bring in some high-quality, consistent branding into our clan. The logo we introduced during the offsite rework wasn't necessarily loved by many in our clan, and had some issues in its usability both online and in print.
You can find the results, and some of the considerations that went into the new logo, in this thread. The new logo came to be after many iterations, and symbolizes important aspects of the clan. A few that stand out to me are that the logo is based on a heraldic design, representing family, the dragon's protective stance over the shield, representing that we look out over our members, and the open wings, representing our welcoming nature.
The responses so far have been very positive, and we've made some good progress on implementing the branding across our platforms. We're still working on some places that need updating, but you'll see the remaining places switch over soon.
Some of you have asked about getting your own t-shirts or other garments decorated with your favourite clan logo. Our immediate focus is on Runefest, but it is our full intention to enable everybody to buy their own Clan Quest gear from some time in the coming months onwards. We're comparing opportunities to make sure we can cater to as many people worldwide as possible while still getting reasonable prices and quality. Keep an eye out on this space.
Speaking of updates, you may have spotted that our Clan Quest homepage was completely revised. We've made it more guest- and mobile-friendly, and have also improved its usefulness for logged in members.
Talking about mobile-friendliness, we have worked on several #fixmobile fixes over the past few weeks. The forum should now be easier to browse on mobile, the navbar no longer clips on smaller screens (partially thanks to the smaller logo), and more.
We've also spent time to make the wiki more newbie-friendly to get started with. Visual Editor is now the default, and should now make wiki editing as easy as editing a Word document. Consider taking the time to create your own user page!
Sirapyro has been doing lots of work on adding new content to the wiki, and we now have a Wiki Discussion. Here you can see what is being added and discuss it, but you can also use it to ask any questions you have.
The website is a continuous work in progress, so we will keep making changes over time, but do feel free to reach out to the Clan Council if you have some points of feedback.
A diamond anniversary
(Guest appearance by Choto)
I guess you've all heard about wedding anniversary presents at least once in your life. You know, silver is for the 25th anniversary, gold for the 50th, superior bronze for the 99th, you get the idea. According to the tradition, diamond is the material for the 75th. You better start saving, because this magazine issue you've just started reading is in fact the number seventy five! (Yes, I realize we're not actually married to the magazine, and that this is not the 75th year and that I've lost track of how many magazine anniversaries I have celebrated but as usual I don't care.)
I'm actually honoured to be called the editor in chef (or was it chief?) of this magazine. But I can be called like that just because there is an amazing group of people called the Content Editors, who actually work a lot to bring you the Questaholic, the wiki, the social media, and more. Thank you everyone who made it possible to reach this 75th issue. Thank you everyone for your uninterrupted support. And thank you, of course, for that diamond.
*yells from the distance* And happy -wow you're actually saying this again- anniversary, Questaholic!

An interview with Pop O
What is your favourite skill?
My favourite skill is combat! (Attack, Constitution, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Prayer, Magic, Summoning)
But I am guessing that that’s not what your asking and that you mean a “skilling” skill excluding Invention or Dungeoneering and in that case I would go with Farming because of the new player own farm content.
Who is your favourite Runescape character from in-game and lore?
Eek the spider
Which are some of your all-time favourite games?
What is your toughest accomplishment in any video game?
Getting the Yaka feat of ATN (all together now) as a sh10 on normal prayer book on my notepad at 4 FPS when my pc was broken. My Hitpoints went to sub 100 at points and I had to guess what’s going to happen next.
Which is one of your favourite movies?
I love Inception one of the few movies that I would watch again and again and again
What sort of music and artists do you listen to?
I like George Ezra and bastille while on RS and on the trains etc
What was your favourite subject/class in school, and why?
Oncology/haematology because I am good at it :P also I worked at haematology unite and did some research some time ago so I am kinda interested in the subject
Coca Cola or Pepsi?
I was a coca cola! Guy, but a few years back I gave up a lot of bad food and drink and I am 40kg better for it
ALEX 43 asks
What is your favorite dessert while reading books on the history of the 16th century in Arkansas when riding a blue train heading westbound through northeastern 9 km/h winds through countryside dehydrated about 30% to the point it's declared a state emergency?
What's your average throwing distance of a 2lb baseball soaked in liquid parmesan cheese and baby oil when you're wearing a turquoise cashmere sweater backwards overtop of a t-shirt of your second-favorite football team that both shrunk in the wash and got about 20% more starch than usual?
Honestly, I would need to run a few experiments to figure that out
What's your favorite pair of socks to wear when you have your hair shaved to a quarter-inch and dyed a cool magenta during a casual trip to the plateaus of the wilderness in Hungary, but you ended up straying from the path and wound up lost in a mess of douglas fir and blue pine with three pointed rocks in your boots and shoelaces too tight to untie with your fingers alone?
I LIKE POPCORN
Where's your glasses?
Lost while I was walking through the world gate never to be seen again
TYCO ELF asks
How would you describe yourself, both IRL and ingame?
Both ingame and IRL I would describe myself as Goal Oriented, when I get something in my head I have to do it
What is your most used item, both IRL and ingame?
IRL I would say my mouse and ingame its between my comp cape and LOTD
What is your first Runescape memory?
tutorial island had been a blast I’ve had 5 firemaking levels I thought I am going to need weapons to kill those big cows that I’ve been told “make a lot of money” so I wondered down south to the mines where I got lost for quite some time, running away from very large beasts otherwise known as large rat and had to get my cousin IRL to get me out of it and to know how to open the map.
You get a ticket to visit Runescape IRL. Where do you go first?
I would go to lumbgridge because that’s the proper way to start your journey
You get 30 seconds of full attention from all employees of Jagex. What do you say?
WHERE IS MY BANK REWORK?
Tell me your darkest secret that would make Solak drop you 500 crossbows instantly.
Firstly a big thank you for taking me through ED1 and ED2. I must say you are extremely patient.
Read your goals on your intro. WOW.
When you manage to do the last one "-Make choto kill rax in bronze" can you invite us to watch and post photos?
I will! It’s a long-term goal ill see if I can help him improve his PVM because I am meeting IRL tomorrow
Not sure you will get away with appeasing the Hoodian's in breath and threatening to serve up the high priest Hoodian as bate to a big spider with the next. Do you?
I will get away with it because I will pretend it’s a quest :wink: to lure him to the spooder I was commanded by a smaller spider to do it!
You do know NPCs have feelings?
What have I done
XENON RAY asks
you gonna teach me solak or na?
yes! But first you must bring me a dry fish a wet pipe and an evil chicken
Sweet or salted popcorn?
Salted all the way, I saw the salty title and I thought I must get that! A year later I managed to get it as soon as I did I had to change my name to the sorter variant pop o which meant it lost some of its meaning so I use the tool title instead now =/
Sweet or salted ocean? Oh wait.
Or a salted popcorn in an ocean of sweet? Mind blown
What is the origin of your name anyway?
Random word generator =’)
Hi Poop. *waves*
waves back o wait…. Not this again…=/ its not poop tora u meenne
If you were to have one of the RS skill capes based on your real life achievements what would it be and why?
Hmm, I am not very good at making fire, I’ve yet to come across a slayer master in real life which is strange it seems….. I can cook! But no real achievement there. Well I do, do some fencing soooo attack there but it would has to be construction because I made my dining table =D
Favourite fashion scape outfit (currently)?
Yellow party hat + golden warpriest+golden trimmed cape
Non of which I own
Why am I so awesome?
Because you won’t call me poop ever again!
What finally made you become one of us? Was it your undying adoration of me?
O right that, there is only 1 right answer right? Otherwise I will be “was one of us” so.
Yah how did you know?
But also taking a break from toxic pvmers that haven’t earned the right to be toxic in the case of zer0
In the case of mewtants I was always the non aus and its mostly just me during when I was on because they would be asleep so it was kinda sad
What's important to you to get from a clan?
A good community really and I have been a guest here for a good few years now so thought why not.
Also I need guinea pigs for all my pvming needs, cannon fodder if you may
Now that you're a part of Clan Quest, what is your mission?
Drag clannies to the cusp of death’s office
Make choto kill rax in bronze
What is your ultimate in-game goal?
Well it was to max, then it was to comp, now I know I’ll trim so its an ultimate goal but what would be is true trim =’) no chance of me getting there at all but aim high
If you could add an achievement to the game, what would it be?
Ive suggested many many achievements on the forms and things like getting the tool title should be one, killing solak with a bronze hatchet should be another
What is your side on removing/splitting Reaper's Crew requirement from Completionist Cape?
Should not be done, the reaper’s crew requirement is what got me interested in pvm when I was going for completionist and comp cape should not be given out willy nilly
Particles or no particles, what is your ideal FashionScape?
Few particles in the right place is great, not to be mistaken for headache causing amounts of particles
Have you mastered the raigeki no hoko yet?
That’s a nope on that one, ill add it to the list of things to do
When did you start playing?
About 10 years ago when I was a wee lad one of cousins introduced me to runescape, since I have spent a good 10%+ of my life on runespace at least
What was your very first accomplishment cape?
On my main it was cooking and that account was f2p only so it was not an easy task to get 99 at all.
On this account my first 99 was dung and I have the untrimmed cape
If I were to visit your country, what do you think I should do first? (Im in England rn so take your chances)
Well… it’s a surprise I guess you will find out tomorrow!
Otherwise just walking in the city site seeing is quite good
There’s ping pong bar and restaurant that’s really current
There is also this street full of Arabs where the best kebabs are made but I don’t want to talk about it too much because kebabtheif might be listening
What are your favourite cities/locations, both in RS and in real life?
I find each city to have its own appeal and for me my favourite has to be Versailles because the versailles palace was amazing when me and friends went to visit it last summer.
In Runescape there is nothing like ‘The Faraway Place where Things are Kept’ its so outside of everything and I’ve spent a lot of time there to the point that I have freelanced my camera and went to the edge of the map square to see all sorts of mock towns and Jagex testing grounds
Do you have a motto or a favourite phrase? If so, which is it?
Now you mention it not really maybe I should
I know this one is gonna be hard, but: Which quest you believe to be the best?
It’s like saying who’s your favourite child but if you force me ill say endgame purely because of the ending
Do you play an instrument? If not, which instrument/s would you like to learn?
Nope and I would like to lean the piano but that’s xp waste so nope
Tell us the story behind your name!
I swear it was a random word generator
How many languages do you speak? Which one would you like to learn?
I speak 2 well another 2 not so well and I would like to learn Russian, well I started to lean Russian but again… xp waste / lazy / there was a girl involved that is no longer the case
If you had to escape your country inmediately, what's the one thing you'd take with you?
I try not to get attached to items but there is 1 item that I am very fond of and it’s a DNA model I mad many years ago I don’t know why I just can seem to let go of it
What's your first memory of the clan?
Tyco teaching me how to join a clan as a guest because I needed some help to do hero’s quest and someone that had a name beginning with X came to the rescue
Coffee or tea?
What do you think?
What do you think?
Having said that I do drink 6-7 cups of coffee a day for the caffeine intake
Which is the most interesting RS God? Why?
Zaros because his story is gripping and the desert treasure quest is super fun
Best thing of Clan Quest?
The endless hoods
Best film ever?
What is the meaning of life?

I am going to nominate Sirapyro.
