~ by LizBeth ~

As the old adage goes, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree". I think some of you are aware that Scorpion3yes is my son in real life. Is he also as eccentric with an "ebil" alter ego or is he the opposite with his very own identity? Let's find out if the aphorism is true.

Cireon:
Who pays the membership bills at home?
A mysterious person who goes by the name of “mom”. Sometimes she wants to be called Lizbeth.

What place from Gielinor would you love to visit in real life?
I’ll say Taverley. Seems a little like the countryside from Europe.

What place from real life would you love to be represented in Gielinor?
I am Sir Jon of Gainesville, home of the Mighty Gators!

What god from Runescape do you want to meet in real life?
I want to meet Guthix. From what I think, he’s a good, honest being, brings balance, and likes green!

When are you going to introduce us to Scorpion3no?
3yes: Our cousin is, at the moment, on a trip because he denies wanting to live close to the rest of the family. I do say what a shame. :/
Scorpion: Let’s just say I made him what he is, hehe. >:D

What is your quest in Runescape?
I WANNA BE THE VERY BEST THAT NO ONE EVER WAS!

What is your quest in real life?
Do something that will benefit the world and its health.

Mskonnan10:
Who plays RuneScape the most, you or Lizbeth?
Lizbeth.

What other computer games do you you enjoy playing?
Minecraft, Mabinogi, League of Legends (the main reasons I don’t play Runescape the most).

Are you really a quester, or do you prefer PvM?
I like questing because you’re a part of a developing story. Of course, PvM is great too, but when put together, it creates a good action storyline if you know what I mean!

Have you any suggestions for this clan that would make it more appealing to you personally?
Honestly, from my viewpoint, I think the clan is alright. Very friendly, very chatty, very involved. All the good stuff!

Are you as good looking as your Mom, and will you attach a photo? (Don't be shy).
I have absolutely no clue if I am as good looking as my mother, but sure, I can have a photo attached.

Favourite, foods, music, colors, sayings, special interests?
Favourite food: Filipino sausage called Longanisa, broiled salmon cooked in olive oil and rubbed with salt and pepper, cheeseburger, tuna sandwich.
Favourite music: some of the top hits of today, Lindsey Stirling, Pentatonix, Linkin Park, Daughtry, Journey, lots of others.
Favourite colors: green, black, blue, dark red.
Favourite Sayings: “You have to believe that something different can happen. He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right.” - Anonymous.

Do you have a part-time job? Have you set any goals in life for type of work you would like to do?
I do not have a part-time job. As for my goals in life for the type of work I would do, I would like to do something that will improve the health of society and ultimately the world.

Tell us one thing about yourself that makes you feel awesome.
I play the cello. ._.

Coopya:
Have you ever had a GP present for birthdays/Christmas?
I've gotten it as a graduation gift!

Wise Ork:
Have you ever lied to LizBeth about something that (did not) happen(ed) in-game?
Not that I know of.

What is your biggest fear?
Loud surprising noises because I have sensitive ears.

Tell us something weird; can be about you, about someone you know, or just something weird about whatever you want to tell.
This will be something of the past, but Mabinogi and Sword Art Online will be coming together, in August, so I’m excited to play alongside the one and only Kirito!

Why the 3yes of a scorpion? Why not its ta1l or cl4w?
I actually chose the name 3yes because, as the saying goes, “3rd time’s the charm”, but then I realized the 3 and the y make a tiny symbol of a scorpion if one looks at it right. You know, pincers and stinger?

  -------? 3y 

Miss Alaska:
TV's?
Mythbusters, Adventure Time, a lot of anime (Fairy Tail, RWBY, Naruto, Hunter X Hunter, SAO).

Films?
Avengers, Star Wars, Star Trek, Wall-E, classic Disney movies, Lorax, Wreck-It-Ralph, many more.

Books?
Harry Potter series, Frankenstein, Catch-22, Hunger Games.

What do you hope for in the next 60 or 70 odd years in life?
Have a successful career and family, as well as having served faithfully my God.

Where do you think the coolest place on earth is?
Wherever my friends and family are!

Do you own any 'RuneScapey' items IRL? For instance, fishing bait, an axe or gnome scarf.
I have…. A machete…

September 2014 004.jpg

Rei:
Is your rs name Scorpion Eyes, or Scorpion 3 yes?
It can be both, your choice!

Hemsky:
Are you excited to be going to UF next year?
I’m a bit nervous about the upcoming change, knowing that I’ll be away from my parents for probably the next four years. (Although, they do live 2 hours away).

How did you decide to go there?
It was one of the choices that would be close to home, and Go Gators!

September 2014 005.jpg

What's your major?
As of right now, Pre- Biomedical Engineering (I have to apply my sophomore year to be declared in Biomedical Engineering).

Do you think you'll be able to stick with it? (I've changed mine since going to school)
It’s a 50/50 chance. If it doesn’t work, I want to stick with the engineering majors (something like industrial or electrical).

What do you want to do after college?
Find a good job, raise a family, achieve my dream goal, and do everything for God.

How many football games do you plan on going to this year?
It’s questionable, but with my parents’ permission (it’s an obligation to get permission for everything), I’ll probably go to a few.

Any intentions on joining a fraternity during your years at school?
Again, it’s questionable, but I may lean towards a no for now because of how I heard there’s the partying and drinking (since UF is a HUGE party school).

When do classes start?
August 25th.

Any classes you're dreading?
Not really. Maybe English.

What was the hardest part of going away?
Leaving family and friends behind.

What was the part you're looking forward to the most?
A new life, new slate, new start.

How far from home are you? (I'm 12/13 hours)
2 hours (I’d say I’m very lucky).

Do you miss mama Liz already?
Very much!

Santa Ends:
What's your favourite RuneScape moment in your entire period of playing this game?
The honest answer is playing with my mom.

Any favourite items, or special outfits you wear that you're known for? (like Ytse's black dragon mask)
K’ril’s Battle gear with fox tail colored in Clan Quest tones.

Any place you particularly hang out in the most?
Not really, occasionally my friend’s house, sometimes watching movies, yet mostly my house, lol!

Do you talk about RS with your irl friends? How were you introduced to it?
I used to talk about RS back in elementary school, but not anymore recently. I was introduced back in grade school by one of my best friends. It was a thing back then to play the game.

How did you influence Liz to play as well?
I just told her she would like it and she would have fun. Plus, I would be playing with her, lol! ^_^

LizBeth:
School will start soon and you've moved into your apartment, are you excited?
I’m pretty nervous, but I think I’ll be fine!

How does it feel being on your own without me and dad fretting over you?
Well, I am technically still close to home, but it’s like a weird kind of freedom...so much of it.

Do you miss home?
Yeah! It’s going to be a big change going from a cosy home to an apartment out in the big city.

What do you think you would miss the most?
My family, high school friends, and feeling of home over the last 18 years.

Are you ready to tackle the road to adulthood?
I’ll do my best!

I just realized that I haven't asked you this particular question, how did you find out about RuneScape?
More or less, I found out from my friends from school back in the 3rd or 4th grade. It was the buzz around my class. There was even a time when half the class played runescape during a computer class; it was pretty cool.

I think you started playing around the age of 8? Or was it even earlier than that?
Maybe around 8 or 9. I know it was in the 3rd or 4th grade.

You were quite persistent coaxing me and your dad to play the game, how come?
Well, the idea came when I was told by one of my friends that his father also played runescape, so I thought, “Why not try and convince my parents too? It could be some cool family adventure time, lol!”

What was it about RuneScape that captivated you back then?
Honestly, it was the fun I had playing with friends. The questing was second and skilling third.

Do you prefer the "old" RuneScape or the RS3?
I like both equally; I wouldn’t favour one over the other. Each has its pros and cons.

What's the one happiest moments of your life?
Getting accepted to the University of Florida.

Best childhood memories?
Spending time with friends during my birthdays.

Best high school memories?
Going to North Carolina and white water rafting.

Favorite quote?
“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” – Victor Hugo.

Thank you, Scorpion, for volunteering to be interviewed. I must say, you are far better than I will ever be.  :D Good luck with school and your future endeavors. To be able to adapt well in life, you must always adjust. Here's a favorite quote from Dr. Seuss: “So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life's a Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you'll move mountains.”
―Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Riddles
~ by Wise Ork

"What item am I?"

I bring you wisdom on par with the remains of the damned
Though instead of decay, I bring new life to the land
Those that use me to be brave
Will not take long before they crave
My brother just four steps above
Its greyish hue devoid of love

Solution 
Bronze bar

1) "wisdom on par with the remains of the damned" -> using a bronze bar gives as much XP as scattering Accursed Ashes.
2) "I bring new life to the land" -> a bronze bar is not gone when used, it simply becomes something new.
3) 'To be brave" & "My brother just four steps above" ->iron weapons require 4 more Attack levels to be used than bronze.

"What item am I?"

I am of gold but come with white
Made for combat, yet I won't fight
And though I am of solid gold,
Protecting you just leaves me cold
I am the key to a place with no gate
And bring you riches from a place that you hate.

Solution 
Gold Helmet

1) "made of gold but come with white" -> it is made of gold & white gold.
2) "made for combat, yet I won't fight. And though I am of solid gold,..." -> it is a helmet, but it has no defensive (or offensive) stats at all.
3) "I am the key to a place with no gate" -> the Arnizian Gold Mine is accessed through a rock, which you can only enter while wearing the Gold Helmet.
4) "And bring you riches" -> the AGM contains more than 60 Gold Ore Rocks.
5) "from a place that you hate" -> "Between a rock and a hard place" means "a situation offering at least two possibilities, neither of which is acceptable".

~!~ OUR CLAN CUP 2014 PARTICIPANTS ~!~
by Konnan
All about our Quest Choobs
******************************

Clan Member Misc 047.png
A Choob being welcomed at Gudrik's house.

The Clan Cup for 2014 starts Sept. 1st and will run most of September. Our Clan is entering two Questing Events starting Sept. 8th. These events are collectively called QUEST CUP and will run as a F2P event called "Iron Choobs" and a P2P event called "Quest Run" A brief description of each follows:

IRON CHOOBS
The Choobs of CQ making up our 5 man team are listed here with their new account Choob Names:

1. ILikeSlayer - Slay Quester
2. Derparnieux - Derparnub
3. HolySanctum - SanctumNub
4. DrakanHpS - DovakiinHps
5. Addicted des - Nooby Des

This is a F2P group and all 5 must complete the F2P quests in the fastest time possible, beating any other clans to win. These questers are not allowed to interact with any clan members for supplies...they must do this all on their own individually.

The Choob members have been registering themselves, and NOT MOVING from Gudrik's house before the starting time to be set by Jagex. One of our councilors has been going there to 'invite' each one into the clan. You will see their names showing up as recruits, with the job title "Ambassador".

~!~

QUEST RUN
The CQ Choobs for this longer event also have choob names:

1. Stick Man H - Grymmstick
2. Rerecros - Nub Rerecros
3. Loco is def - Loco iz sad
4. The Draziw - Nub Draziw
5. Sinistral - Lartsinis
6. Miss Alaska - Alaska Nub (spare)

In addition to doing all the F2P quests this second group must carry on trying to achieve the highest amount of quest points during the week.

To do the P2P quests they will become Members, but they can only do this by receiving a Bond, in trade from a clan member. The bonds cost over 5.5M each, and ETU funds will be used to pay for them.

Miss Alaska signed up Clan Quest for these events on the Jagex forums.
Cireon has started a forum on the Offsite for organizing all Clan Cup plans.

http://forums.clanquest.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4192

Edit: The above Choobs are still getting prepared for the Quest Cup, and there could be changes before plans are finalized on Sept.7/14

~!~ ANNOUNCING CLAN GENERAL MEETINGS ~!~
by Konnan
Two meetings of the clan are coming up soon.
***********************

The next General Meeting of the Clan is on Sunday, September 21, 2014...1900 GMT. Please wear white armor, or light colored attire, and Quest Cape if you own one, or clan cloak.

We will meet for about half an hour in the Citadel, Senate Room in the Keep, to meet and greet the four new High Councilors and welcome all the new members who have joined us in the past year. We hope to hear from the four new councilors, and time permitting there will be an opportunity for anyone who wishes to address the clan.

Then we will proceed out into world 66 to form a train just south of Burthrope Bank in the clan circle.

You can bank there, to collect your vex and bring cabbages, pets, and emote capes. We will walk south to the general exchange, and plant our vex along the way. At the GE cabbage bomb all around the central fountain, and do emotes.

~!~

The second General Meeting will be called November 9/14. The purpose of this gathering is to celebrate the clan's 5th birthday. Details of that meeting will be announced on the offsite when plans are finalized.

Holding a clan general meetings is a way to meet our clanmates in the home world, and interact to have more fun together. Hope you will mark your calendar and plan to attend.
