Clan Citadel

Jagex has a new media page full of watermarked medium-quality jpeg screenshots. With the release of Clan Citadels, I thought I’d one-up them and take a few screenshots of my own. I then noticed that they had a competition with exactly that in mind. Here are the screenshots I sent them – if anyone from Jagex finds this post and wants to verify that the images I submitted weren’t stolen, my RuneScape name is Nightgunner5, and I’m wearing a veteran cape and sitting down in two of the pictures. I also posted these screenshots on RSBandB, so go check out the comments there as well.

Unban Nmr7… Please?

Sticker made by the creator of Nmr7

Jagex just doesn’t get it. If they ban all of the player mod caliber players and makes all the people they should have banned into player mods, they’re doing something called being dumb. Just plain dumb. You see, there was once a person named Nmr7 on RuneScape. He got banned for saying a joke in clan chat, that nobody would have ever believed if it wasn’t for a certain player mod that couldn’t handle a joke and a certain company that can’t handle themselves.

TeamSpeak helps stop unfair Runescape bannings of RSBandB members

[TeamSpeak Logo]
TeamSpeak, the replacement for the old chat server on RSBandB, is just getting started. There have been an average of about 1-5 people on at a time, but this is just the first day. TeamSpeak is about the best option we have available for the RSBandB chat. RuneScape private chat just doesn’t work with the whole clan. We aren’t in the same place, so public chat is out of the question. Clan chat is out since there have been so many unfair bannings on the clan chat. MSN and any of the other major IM programs out there won’t work because we need to be able to all communicate at the same time, plus, there’s no way we can use them without taking our eyes off whatever we’re doing. If we did take our eyes off of RuneScape, we could be killed by random events, reported for macroing, or even lose friends by missing their private messages.

But instead of thinking negatively, let’s think positively. TeamSpeak allows us to do other things with our hands, given that we have a microphone of some kind and a computer, we can all join TeamSpeak. By the way, for you Ventrilo fans, it’s free even if you have more than eight people in the chat. 😛 We can just talk into a microphone and everyone who wants to hears us. Right now, it’s in its early stages, and there isn’t much moderation. There are a few major glitches that need to be ironed out, such as the fact that Warren and Tal can’t seem to send text, but nothing too major. Overall, I think TeamSpeak is the best option for RSBandB members who play RuneScape and want to talk about other things at the same time, but don’t want to be banned.

An Idea, Part 1

First of all, I would like to say that the idea for having an idea is from Anubis, A.K.A. Gluume,A New Bus, Anoobis, An00bis, A Noob Is, A Pube Is, Fishy the Nub, Goobus, Gluumenoob, Pubis, Pubish, Noobis, Noobish, Nubis, Nubish, N00bish, Rubish and… Bubis. His blog can be found here.

Okay, all randomness aside, some skills on Runescape just aren’t what they could be… Farming lacks a sense of purpose, firemaking lacks things to do, mining lacks good training methods… Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

Let’s look at each problem skill and see what could be done to it to make it more enjoyable: Continue reading
