Tell us about your RuneScape account and history.

My account is my first and only Runescape account. I started out in 2005 as a 12 year old and have been playing ever since.

This account's gone through just about everything. From the release of the Farming skill, all the way to the introduction of the Nightmare of Ashihama. I had nearly maxed out to level 136 when EoC released, quit, then started all over again in 2016 with OSRS.

In between all of that, I had some of my best experiences with clans. My favorite memories were Corporeal Beast masses hoping for that lucky Divine, duo Bandos trips with my best friend I met from clanning, spur of the moment 7-8 man PK trips in PvP worlds, and 14 hour PKRI's that made my ass fall asleep.

These days I admit I'm just a basic casual. A normal session usually involves me casually dabbling in skilling, maybe a Slayer task, and a Castle Wars game if I'm feeling adventurous. I noticed that I don't do anything or exciting anymore. For the most part I now play Runescape for stress-relief and do slow AFK activities that allow me to get things done on the side.

Runescape's has gone stagnant for me. I guess that's why I'm looking for a clan to give me something to really look forward to again.

 

Tell us about your clan history.

I started in The Death Monkeighs in 2006. I moved to The Gladiatorz in 2007 when I realized I wanted a more PvP oriented experience. I met one of my best Runescape friends (now in real-life also) in Gladz. I hopped over to The Titans with him around 2008, since we wanted to get involved with the rivalry between the 'big three' at the time (The Titans, Runescape Dinasty, and Violent Resolution).

I finally quit Runescape in 2012 nearing the release of EoC.

I tried to apply for a couple clans in 2016 when I returned to OSRS and became a trial member, but never officially became a member.

 

Tell us about your yourself.

I'm a 27 year old high school teacher in California. I've been teaching English for four years now. Outside of Runescape I'm a boxer, graphics artist, musician, and a surfer.

Usually every other day on weekdays, from 6pm-8pm PST, I have fun getting punched in the face.

On weekends depending on the swell, from 8am-1pm PST, I'm out catching waves.

I also have a collection of pixel signatures I used to do back in the day for Runescape: https://www.reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/668kef/i_actually_used_to_do_pixel_art_on_ms_paint_for/

Those are a few fun facts about me and just a small idea of my schedule (since I know sometimes that can conflict with clan events).


 

How did you hear about us?  

I was going through a nostalgia trip browsing the old Zybez forums. I decided to look up clan histories on Google and Reddit. I clicked around and went down a rabbit hole.. until I ran into this guy's post: https://www.reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/fdyyh2/to_all_players_searching_for_a_clan/

 

What makes you want to join us?

I really want to get back into PK'ing and PVM'ing with a solid group of friends. All my friends have left the game and I miss that feeling.

I loved hanging out in Teamspeak shooting shit while chopping yews, then having someone spontaneously suggest a PK trip, a Bandos event, or a Corporeal trip. The sense of community and wonder that made me go "I wonder what's going to happen when I log on today?" was something that I only experienced when clanning. I'm hoping to get that feeling back again.

Other than that - Wilderness Guardians was the only recognizable honor clans of yesteryear that I found still active. I'm not really interested in joining the newer 'CC' clans. Also, I've never been interested in RoT and VR, which seemed to be the only other options for recognizable Zybez clans. I'd probably rather stick to casual skilling for the rest of Runescape than ever joining those two.

 

Do you agree to the rules and requirements of WG and understand that this is an honour clan?

 Yes

 

Come clean about anything that may deter us from accepting you: 

I'm a teacher that has mountains of grading on some days. I'm in a serious relationship that requires date-night once in a while. I also have an asshole dog who eats my shoes if he isn't exercised enough.

 

My activity can vary a lot due to real-life circumstances.

You might get me 7 days a week, 20 hours a day during the summer, but then you can just as easily lose me during the school year for weeks on end when progress reports and student grades are due. It's definitely not consistent or reliable by any means.

Really, I'm just trying to dip my feet back into the clanning world. I admit that I failed horribly at trying to meet minimum attendance requirements of clans like The Rising back in 2016 when I first returned the OSRS. I think it was to make one event a week consistently for a month or something? I couldn't balance it with my masters courses at the time.

So now - I don't want to make any promises I can't keep.

Still though... I wouldn't have typed out this essay if I wasn't genuinely trying to find a community I could be a part of. I hope you guys can understand.

 

P.S. I have 0 Raid experience and haven't PK'd since 2016. I've really missed out on things that (I feel) you really need to do with a group of friends.

Hope y'all give me a chance.
