"We are creating a more conscious effort to embed lore into prospective content to deliver everything together. We have changed our design procedure up around that so everything begins with a story brief. Building the narrative and also the creative right in RS gold the start for everything we're doing." This is the most exciting thing. Jagex should hire somebody who specializes in creative story telling with this instead of person jmods making things up. Not to say that they have a say, since they may discuss with them what they may like and work collectively.
This Is the Way we felt playing RuneScape all those years
When I first started you clicked one of a couple starters and began with base stats around 10 or something within them. After selecting role and name you spawned in lumbridge. No tutorial, no manual, no Google, no wiki, and away you went. It was insane. I began magician that got me boost in magical, and that I think cooking? Another couple too I'm sure. Fall 2001. First time I thought back to my version of first tutorial.
Because I thought I could get rich easy from this I was a miner. And yeah, the debut of tutorial island I believe was my first"back in my day we had to just make our own way" moment. We didn't have a wiki, but we did have tip.it, and later runehq. Hint it was there early but 6 weeks with 9 aids was nuts. I spent a month at the Dwarven mines mining iron scared shirtless of Scorpions. I remember being scared shit less of knights, white nights and believing were unkillable. Getting to dead ends on quests where the next step I have no clue. Looking at you Ernest shield of arrav, the chicken.
I recall when they inserted armor and Addy plate moved from 36. So that I spend my money selling my stuff to get 2 of them, I didn't know and watched Addy plate for 30k each. Effectively halving my stack. I recall having 20 crackers that are + / party hats and just dropping them as useless. I remember when they added members and believing are all these people in rune wearing a bronze player.. It had been dragon lol. I remember amazing pking was to get low level mages and forced 3 round combat.
I remember choosing a character type, but I am pretty certain Falador existed and that I know I used suggestion to plan my training. I thought I had been so smart for figuring out how that scim/kite was the best weapon combo all on my own. I'm pretty certain Addy long was cheap RuneScape gold much better compared to Addy scim in first rs. Addy long and 2h were best in game. Rune came out. I do remember thinking dragon longs were bronze like all these people in rune with swords lol and being.
