Posts Tagged With: Experience point

Today was a good day for ‘scaping.

I started out by going through some of the daily challenges. You may remember this from the time I buried however-many bones and got some monies. Well, today the challenges were to do the Burthrope obstacle course eight times, string eight short bows, and burn 10 Normal logs. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

Burning logs like a boss.

Let’s just say, fifteen minutes later I was 3k gps richer and all sorts of experience levels were gained. After that it was kind of boring. I ran over to the Tree Gnome Stronghold to do that obstacle course over there.

Eventually I got bored and since I was in World 1 there were about 300 people mulling about doing their own thing. Off to World 3! Lumbridge was bumpin’! I popped in on a conversation where some girl was complaining about the phrase”YOLO.” I, of course, had to interject stating that it was alright to use the cliché if one were using it ironically. I think the topic came up because there was a guy there by the name of YOLO HOSE. I’m not sure if he meant is to be pronounced like “JOSÉ” or “HOSE” like the garden hose. We just called him YOLO. Someone was emoting themselves to throw sand at him while yelling “Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand!” It was good fun. Eventually, one woman named YogitheBear came up to me and actually thought I was funny. That’s right. Someone enjoyed what I had to say. It was a beautiful moment in Potam history. At one point in time people were mentioning their ages, YOLO was 19 and Yogi was 29. All of the sudden YOLO started getting all hostile toward Yogi. He was bashign her for being 29 and playing RS.

This was my exact facial expression.

What a punk! She can play whatever the hell she wants to. He told her to get a life but she had a husband and a daughter AND she worked full time. I asked YOLO to stop being a troll. Nobody messes with people who think I’m funny. I gotta defend my peoples, guys. He continued on being an ass even though Yogi continued to make valid points. He then tried to pull the, “I’m working so-many nights a week in addition to another job so even though you’re a mother and work full time, you’ve got nothing on me.” Is this kid for cereal?! I just… I can’t even… Ugh. Fine YOLO. I’ll do this dance with you, but I won’t enjoy it.

Ricky was there, too. If you don’t remember him from this post, he’s the salmon-colored short-wearing person with the feather in his hat. We’re bros. But, he forgot about me. Apparently I didn’t make enough of an impression on him. Damn.

Eventually Yogi got tired of YOLO’s pestering and left. YOLO, after finding out he had no one else to bully left as well. I really hope he’s dumb enough to follow someone into the Wildy. After that, the conversation died out until it was just Ricky and I hanging out. We had some pretty decent conversations for RS. I commented on his nice salmon Chubbies and he commented on the fact that I could speak articulately (sometimes a rarity in the gaming world). We were bros once more. I explained how I kinda-sorta knew him but he didn’t remember me because he frequents the populated worlds quite a bit and meets all sorts of people.

That random guy in the back never said anything.

I asked him about what his favorite conversation with someone was about an he told me it was about having a four-some with the NPC, Nastroth. Oh and once he found out I was a girl, without fail, he asked me what a vagina looked like. Classic. Real classic. I told him, “a mushy taco.” That shut hm up, real quick-like. Soon our conversation of two increased to three and then four with the addition of two gentlemen named RoyalBlonde and MickellBerry. We exchanged some friendly banter for some time until we decided to move from the left side of the Lumbridge castle gates to the right. There was an entirely new group of people over there having their own conversation oddly enough about tentacle porn. Yeah. RuneScape. Full of weird people talking about weird shit. All. Day. Long.

There was a guy with a giant hand on a stick. Like, what? Yeah.

Soon we were having a party right there on the Lumbridge Castle lawn. There was Rudro12, bearman332 (who loved to talk about poop), Slendahhman, and I Luv Grama. (I asked her if “Grama” stood for grandma or grammar but she never clarified.) Ricky then asked me if I ever tried eating those scented erasers when I was a child, I said no but I did try chapstick. Apparently he was all about those scented candles. People are weird. Slendahhman then began talking about how masturbation was gross and Ricky chimed in saying he frowned upon it. All of the sudden some guy named Pyrastan walked over and was telling us about how he was hotboxing Lumbridge and then challenged everyone to see who was higher. I threw out an idea: whomever could say the most philosophical thing won. Immediately RoyalBlonde was claiming he was the “seeker of a magical placenta” and said, “I live in the placenta.” Well. That happened. Oh, don’t worry the night continues on its way with a guy dressed as a giant chicken named Delph4Jesus. He was imploring everyone to repent and make way for Jesus. After that I had to say goodnight. The chicken got me.

Game with a friend.

This session we have a special guest, my very good friend, Archery Swag (a.k.a. Taylor). He is a member and one of the gentlemen who got me started in RS back in high school. He’s been a member for a while now so he is a little more advanced than I am when  it comes to knowledge. He and my other character MaggieMayy1, founded our own clan: The Mafia Knitting Club. Well, since I wasn’t really participating all that much in my other grammatically impaired clan, I bailed and joined The Mafia Knitting Club.

Sorry, Red Dragans; I have officially moved on to greener pastures.

Perks to ‘Scaping with a friend:

  • Leveling advice.
  • You’re not just someone playing alone in your room.
  • You have a wingman.
  • Trade!
  • Dungeoneering opportunities.
  • The wilderness buddy system.
  • Dueling arena.
  • Dance parties!

And the list goes on…

Taylor goes to Michigan Tech and surprised me by being in Bemidji on Friday. (My friends and I play a nation-wide game of tag and he came and tagged me as well as stayed for the weekend.) This is why my posts are late. We played RS for a little while too and this was the perfect opportunity to have a great gaming session.

Right about this time, I had officially given up on the old quest. I wasn’t leveling up fast enough and I was ready to do exploring elsewhere. The best part about RS quests is the fact that you can leaven whenever you want and when you come back you can pick right back up where you left off. Someday, I’ll return but not this day.

Potam, Achery Swag, and Archery Swag’s overgrown cat killing cows.

Although my imp robes were cool, we decided I needed some legitimate range armor. My defense isn’t high enough so I’m stuck with leather for now. We hopscotched our way over to Beefy Bill’s pasture. (Hint: the fastest way to get to Beefy Bill’s pasture is via  Draynor lodestone.) We were killing cows left and right until both of our inventories were full of cow hides. then, up to Varrock we went to have them tanned. I accidentally had them tanned into hard leather so the only things I could craft were more hard leather gloves. Fantastic. The hard leather gloves I had made before still hadn’t sold on the Grand Exchange so I doubt these would but I put them up for sale anyway. Now, I needed to level up my crafting skill so I could make better armor. I was about to return to Beefy BIll’s when Taylor mentioned flax farming. There is a flax farm just South of Seers’ Village. (This is in the p2p world.) I needed to activate those lodestones still so I teleported the Taverly and then had to walk the rest of the way.

Taylor has his own 14-step system to profit:

This is flax.

This is flax.

  1. Fill inventory with flax.
  2. Run North of Seers Village bank.
  3. Bank all flax.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 until satisfied.
  5. Fill inventory one more time.
  6. Teleport to Lumbridge.
  7. Go to the second floor.
  8. Spin flax into bow strings at the spinning wheel there. (Crafting)
  9. Go to third floor bank.
  10. Exchange bow strings for more flax.
  11. Repeat steps 7-10 until out of flax.
  12. Go to Grand Exchange.
  13. Sell all bow strings.
  14. Profit.
Simple enough.

Simple enough.

We did that a couple of turns until Taylor told me about some fancy boots, I think they’re called “boots of lightness” or something along those lines. They increase your stamina as well as make you faster. You see, the more things you carry the slower you go and the worse your stamina; these boots fix that. The location of these boots were in this crazy dungeon and we had to buy candles and light them first in order to see. I was attacked by bats on the way down there but once my combat level gets high enough these pests shant be an issue. I had to claw through some spider webs but I got the boots! I haven’t noticed any difference but that’s because I don’t carry much to begin with.

After we got out of that dark place we returned to our flax farming. However, we were stopped along the way by this bouncing box-thing. I bought a ticket and entered. I was greeted by a circus set-up and three options. I chose the range course where I had to shoot at certain targets at different distances. I hit the first few but I missed most of them. Fortunately, I still got a bunch of xp from it so all was well.

My kitteh.

My kitteh.

Then, Taylor and I decided I needed a cat. I had seen other members with pets and I wanted one but didn’t know how. Taylor had a cat so he knew the ropes. I had to complete this Gertrude’s Cat quest, as long as it wasn’t as complicated as that desert quest, sign me up! Off to Varrock we teleported. This time we check the wiki first. I needed a sardine and a bucket of milk. You can buy both at the Grand Exchange and soon I owned both. (Hint: make sure you go to the back of Gertrude’s house and pick some of the Doogle weed to rub on the sardine!) One saved cat later, I had my own little kitten! You have to feed and pet it, like any other real cat otherwise it will run away. Time to test my nurturing skills.

To end our session, we returned to Lumbridge to finish our flax spinning, this time with our feline companions!
