Darkestnight is a current member of the RS3 Guild Council and member of the Runescape Guild. She joined Clan Quest on 6th August 2020.

She can normally be found co-hosting minigame events on the weekend, and other times can be found either replaying all quests on her alt account or getting up to nonsense.

The Dawn

Origins

Darkestnight's original trek to the world of Gielinor began sometime in 2007, but being young she wanted to replay Tutorial Island over and over rather than progress further in the game, so she made several accounts over a period of time to do this.

Her original account has since been lost to the sands of time, and the account she currently uses as her main is the one that survived the Tutorial Island Trials. Due to a foggy recollection of this time period, we only know that this last account was made in December of 2008 because of Hans.

Dark's original escapades on Gielinor were both nonsense and quest driven. Examples of nonsense include;

  • Buying an Abyssal Whip because everyone had one while having nowhere near the requirements needed to use one
  • Prioritising fashionscape over function and changing outfits everyday regardless of the protection it offered her
  • Dyeing her in-game cat purple without thinking about if she really wanted a purple cat
  • Regularly dedicating a few hours to creating nothing but gold rings and selling them on the Grand Exchange as she liked the idea that she was the main wedding ring supplier for Gielinor

Amongst her nonsense, Dark dedicated time to completing quests as best as she could. Some of the quests Dark was most excited to play belonged to the region of Morytania, although she treated Morytania with the same level of wariness as she did the Wilderness. As such, enemies such as the Giant Lobster from Ghosts Ahoy were all that much terrifying as she feared her character dying and not being able to get back to her gravestone in time to recollect her gear. She would outgrow this fear of dying as she got older however, and was able to enjoy combat fully.

Prior to the Evolution of Combat update Dark's combat style was almost entirely Magic based, and she was determined to make Magic her first 99. Another Magic related goal of hers was to enter the Magic Guild in Yanille and she spent a considerable amount of time dedicated to training Magic to accomplish this, although this was done in fairly inefficient ways and she would not meet the entry requirement until her return.

Around about the time of the EOC update Dark took a long break to focus on school, and although she would stop by occasionally she wouldn't fully return until 2019.

The Return

In 2019 Dark made her permanent return to Gielinor. Like most returning players, she didn't quite know where to start with the large amount of new content that had been produced while she was away, but she did what she knew best: Questing.

Dark eventually managed to meet her goal of entering the Magic Guild in Yanille although it wasn't as exciting as her much younger self would have imagined it to be! Dark planned on working towards making Magic her first combat related 99 as she had ended up with Farming as her first 99 instead, which she felt was a good compromise as a nod to her younger self. Dark achieved this goal of 99 Magic on 06/09/2021, and with this her promise to her childhood self had been fulfilled.

Ironically, after returning and learning how to use the new combat mechanics Dark ended up making Melee her primary combat style instead of Magic. She still utilises Magic as a combat style though, primarily in PvP situations.

Dark's playstyle had always been traditionally solo which meant she didn't have much interaction with other players, and so she kept mostly to herself while relearning the ropes. This all changed, however, when she decided to join a clan.

The Day

Clan Quest

Dark's search for a clan was spurred on by a surprising thing: Achievements. Dark had noticed there were a handful of achievements you could only get by visiting your Clan's Citadel, and so she decided this would be her reason to search for a clan after several years of playing solo.

Dark didn't want to join a clan which had demanding requirements to maintain membership within the clan, and wanted to find a friendly social clan with a passion for lore and quests. A quick search led her to Clan Quest's offsite, but she decided she would ask around first before making any commitments.

Posting on the RS3 Reddit asking for clan suggestions would lead her back to Clan Quest as a fellow clannie, Xurdones, would recommend Clan Quest to her amongst a few other suggestions. Taking this a good sign, Dark would guest in Clan Quest's chat as a guest for a day before making her application to join. On 6th August Dark would be officially invited to join Clan Quest, and her days as a solo player ended.

Taking breaks in-between playing meant Dark had a vague recollection of earlier quests she had completed, so in late 2020 she created her alt account, Lightestday, to begin replaying earlier content alongside fellow clannies on Clan Quest's Group Questing Twitch Streams.

In March 2021 a crashed server changed everything. Darkestnight was one of a few players who were locked out of their accounts following the crash of a server storing their account data, and as a result was unable to return in-game until her account profile had been manually recreated by Jagex staff. During this time Dark commandeered her alt account which had not been affected, and began to pour her spare time into fully relearning the Runescape lore she had forgotten.

On April Fools Day 2021, Darkestnight's account was returned to her as she had left it. The irony of having it returned on April Fools Day did not escape her, and she joked at the time she would log in the next day only to be locked out again. As luck would have it, this was not the case.

On 19th May 2021, Darkestnight was inducted onto the RS3 Guild Council after a nomination by Questcaping. Since then Dark has been a Guild Councillor for Clan Quest and continues to do so today.

Darkestnight currently co-hosts Weekend Minigame Events alongside Questcaping, and enjoys getting to know the clannies that attend. Her favourite minigames include Trawler, Heist, Shades of Mort'ton, and Shifting Tombs.

Dark's alt account is Lightestday, whom she had legally married to her account Darkestnight during the Clan Minigame Tournament of the Summer of 2021 by Questcaping using Guthix's Book of Balance. The Green Lantern jokes are never ending.

Lightestday is being used to replay all quests as a refresher on RuneScape lore as she had gaps in her memory of the earliest quests as she had played them more than 10 years ago. One of Dark's main goals is to achieve a Quest Cape for Lightestday as proof that she is a hardcore lorehound.

Once she eventually achieves this she hopes for Lightestday to become an account to ruminate on new quests and allow her to replay them immediately, so that she may dissect the story points at her own pace once she knows how they end.
