Week five summary!

So, week five was fun:) I met a lot of people throughout the RS world. I even made some actual friends which was an entertaining ordeal. The video I was making didn’t work out due to the fact that when I recorded the game play scenario, the file was converted to a format that my computer did not agree with unless I downloaded more software. So, that was a flop.

My week’s posts:

Today was a good day for ‘scaping.

FRIENDSHIP.

It’s because of Dad.

Ozan the useless.

Back to the desert.

Everyday I get more and more views or people just coming for reference. All the feedback I got from the studio tours has been implemented, like adding my first post to my About page for easier access. I really appreciated all the positive feedback I was getting and I really liked reading other people’s posts, which gave me some more ideas for my own (like when RS references things, to link to where those references came from). Potam is a character I’d really like to continue and I plan on elongating my membership so as to explore more into some of the storyline quests (like my quest with Ozan and Leela).

Spiders rolling balls of poop.

Crystal.

Crystal.

After  my first attempt to save the prince failed and Osman granted me several rewards for all my hard work, he asked me to finish my work. And me, bring the good samaritan I am, said yes. I went and got Ozan (he was sulking outside the palace gates) and we stole the diamond again (this time Osman may or may not have told us to). Escape round two worked out a little better this time and we left to Shantay Pass with the diamond in tow. Shantay was acting super weird (Meaning he sounded like he was possessed but hey, this is RS. People don’t get possessed here. Let’s be realistic.) when we went to talk to him but he had been standing out in the sun all day.

Just put that anywhere.

Just put that anywhere.

Out into the desert we went only this time, the second we entered, the ground started quacking, shaking, and baking. Then out of nowhere a sundial appeared. On the ransom note for the prince, Lady Keli had told us to follow the path of the sun so following the direction of an inanimate sundial such as this makes perfect sense. Ozan told me a quick story about the gods. There are eight of them, one for every day of the week. The first god, Het, apparently looked to most human so I moved the stick/pointer thing over the face of man image and poof the ground was shaking and quaking and another sundial appeared off in the distance. this time, when we picked the right image on the sundial, some bandits appeared. The lead bandit was acting just as Shantay had. Weird.

I guess the diamond was possessing and speaking through him. Apparently this diamond has no respect for personal space. Jerk. Anyway, we fought the bandits. Ozan continued to be useless then we moved on to the next sundial which turned out to be buried in quicksand which we also fell in. Fortunately/unfortunately for Ozan and me, there was a cavern underneath that saved us from drowning in sand. Once we landed the diamond fell out of my pocket and some spider creature came and scuttled away with it. This just keeps getting better and better. It took us awhile (since Ozan was sitting on a piece) but we got the sundial working again and it pointed us down the cave/tunnel we needed to follow to get back the diamond. At the end of said tunnel we found:

Those are balls of dung. Spiders + Poop = Poor experience.

Those are steaming balls of dung. Spiders + Poop = Poor experience.

A cave full of spiders rolling balls of poop. I diamond was in one of those balls of poop. We had to run around slicing open those balls of poop until we found what we were looking for. It took forever, but I had to look for the “shining” ball of poop and slice it open. Each time it was a gem different than that of a diamond: a ruby, a sapphire, and an emerald. Finally we found that damned diamond but then we couldn’t get out of the cave. All of the sudden, Leela decided to show up and save us. Oh, and the new sundial was, like, right there. So much convenience was going on.

So, we found the last sindail and Lady Keli was standing not too far off with the prince and her two top-level henchmen. Ozan decided it would be a good idea to call this crazy bitch out but Lady Keli got kind of pissed and revealed herself as a goddess.

I had to fight off her two henchmen by myself since Ozan and Leela are worthless sacks and once I was finished I realized how pointless this all was because Lady Keli/Amascut possessed me and just took the diamond anyway. PLOT TWIST: she gave the prince back and we returned him to Al Kharid and the psychopath left us literally in the dust. Poor guy, the emir was his father and we had to break the news to him the hard way. But, since this is RS, Prince Ali was very understanding: “One can never be prepared for the death of a loved one.” A moment of silence for the dead Emir Shah, please.

What a punk.

What a punk.

Meanwhile, Amascut and that sketchy Jabari dude were chit-chatting somewhere far away. Turns out the Emir Shah didn’t die of a heart attack but was poisoned by the emissary. So yeah, ANOTHER PLOT TWIST. Amascut also mentioned another part of her plan, dealing with Scabaras, a different god but I feel that may be a different quest all-together.

Alas, at the end of the day, we returned the prince and Osman was very happy because Al Kharid was safe for the time being. I continued to reap the benefits of completing a quest.

Yay.

Yay.

The deep desert is not fun.

Wares officially bartered.

Wares officially bartered.

After Potam acquired her imp hide robes but she still had all those leather items in her bank. What do we do when we have an exceptional amount of items? We sell them! Sell them all! So, I teleported to the Varrock and headed to the Grand Exchange to barter my wares. Unfortunately none of these items are in particularly high demand so it will take some time to sell all of them.

Alright, moving on.

I was getting kind of tired of the whole Lumbridge/Varrock scene so after teleporting back to Lumbridge I headed south, out of Lumbridge, and then west over a bridge into Al Kharid, a desert city. I explored a bit and learned the castle there is on lockdown. You can’t get in anywhere but you can kill the guards if you’re bored but there really isn’t much else you can do to interact with the castle itself.

It is very beige there.

It is very beige there.

I moved on the rest of the city and activated the lodestone. The city itself is not very big but there are places to buy scimitars (Hint: this is the prime weapon for any melee-focused character), plate legs, or plate skirts. (You know, in case you want to look feminine when you’re killing goblins.) There ar also the Al Kharid games you can look into. Personally, I’ve always viewed these as a perfectly good waste of time and gp but whatever floats your goat. If you’re in need of snacks, there is a Kebab shop where you can buy…wait for it… kebabs for one gp. Kebabs are meant to be a bit risky though. Sometimes they can give you 300 health points while other times they can give you nothing. In addition to giving you health points, if you get a spectacularly delectable kebab it can even raise some combat stats whereas a putrid kebab can lower stats.

From there I headed south to where there was an alcove with a bank chest and from there I couldn’t go any further south without receiving this message (for f2p players, you shall not pass):

Psh.

Psh.

Obviously I clicked “Proceed Regardless” because I’m not afraid of anything and into the desert I ventured. To the right of this gate there was a weeping damsel in distress. Me, being the good samaritan that I am, asked her what was the matter and apparently her daughter had gone into the desert and NOT RETURNED. GASP.

THE QUEST HAS BEGUN.

I was told to follow some footsteps heading south and sure enough there were some footsteps in the sand clear as day.

It's like they wanted me to see them or something.

It’s like they wanted me to see them or something.

So, I followed said footsteps to a band of miners guarding some sort of gate. I sweet-talked my way (meaning I paid one miner five gp) into telling me how to get past the gate. apparently the guard captain had a key on him but he wasn’t going to let me in, of all people, unless I found some guy named Al Zaba Bhasim (possibly hiding in the west *hint*hint*wink*wink*), captured him, and brought him back to the head guard. All of the sudden I lost about three fourths of my health. I looked in my chat box: I guess we need waterskins to hang out in the desert. Who knew? Well, I certainly didn’t. I had maybe 100 health left out of 500 so I had to book it back to Al Kharid to buy some (4) waterskins. (Hint: you can buy them from the guy next to the guy selling game stuffs.) I also bought a desert shirt, boots, robe, a fake beard, and a turban. If you combine your turban with your fake beard it makes a desert disguise. I don’t know what it’s supposed to be used for but I put it on anyways, just in case.

So, with my sweet desert disguise and my waterskins I journeyed back to the desert, to the miners’ camp, and west to find that Al Zabadoobeedoo guy and return him to the hands of justice! Soon enough I found a camp and in the centermost tent was the tent-dwellers’ leader who told me that man doe not exist. I had to return to the captain, insult him for not fighting his own battles and then we fought. It took some time and a kebab but eventually I killed him, and look at that! He dropped a key!

Me in my desert garb.

Me in my desert garb stuck in my cell.

There I took the key, got in through the gate and I wasn’t in there a minute before some guards caught me and threw me in jail. Great.

I’ve tried to escape time and time again but to no avail. I’ve bent the bars, gone outside, talked to all the slaves, the cart drivers, and even the camel. I’ve checked all the crates and even snuck up to the second floor of the prison and talked to the captain. I tried to convince him there was a fire in the lower mines and instead of sounding the alarm I ran to save him first but I got nowhere. Oh, and I was caught and roughed up by some guards at least ten times whilst completing these tasks. I’m officially stuck. I guess I’ll have cave and check the wiki. Or maybe not… no matter how many times I get thrown back into jail, I will find a way! I promise you that! By the way, I’m down to one waterskin so I better figure this out soon or I’m going to die. Cool beans.
