From left to right: ArcherySwag (Comabat Level: 137), Potam (Combat Level: 37), A Man262 (Combat Level: 151)
Today I went adventuring with Taylor (ArcherySwag) again but this time we added one more to our party, another fellow Mafia Knitting Club member, Alec (A Man262). His name is particularly ironic due to the fact that A Man262 is a woman. He used to be a man but one day he decided to go around and troll all the horn-dogs that patrol RS; however, to do so he had to adopt a pair of breasts.
Anyway, A Man262 is not a member so this round ArcherySwag and I had to stick to the f2p boundaries. A Man262 hadn’t played in a while so ArcherySwag and I decided to just do our own thing. I needed to replace my imp-hides wizard’s robes with some actual range-wear since we were planning on doing some hardcore adventuring. Turns out, even if you are a member, in f2p worlds you can’t do anything that you could do if you were in a members world (i.e. leave the f2p boundaries, wear certain clothes, wield certain items). Even the skills only allotted to members were dumbed down.
Ooovoo-ing it up.
Moving on, so what I needed was some hard leather armour. I knew I could craft it but ArcherySwag was on the move so I headed up to the GE just to take the fast way out. Well, turns out no one wants to sell their hard leather items (or buy, in my case, those hard leather gloves still haven’t sold). So, I had to go kill some of Beefy Bill’s cows and make my own. ArcherySwag was also trying to tell my my bow sucked but, as it turns out, the “crappy” bow I had was a lot better than both the short bow and the shield bow I coud buy from the archery shop in Varrock. TAKE THAT.
So A Man262 finally made it into our world. We all decided to meet up at the GE. Now, usually you would communicate via RS chat when you team up with other players but with my friends we like to live voice/video chat with Oovoo. This makes communication instantaneous and much, much easier.
For some reason, A Man262 wanted to hit on this one girl he was standing next to in the GE by the fountain. Unfortunately for him, he had to start the conversation out explaining that he was, in fact, a man and not a woman like his character would suggest. Oh, and he approached her with a classy, “Hey gurl.” She was very friendly so, like any other friendly individual, she said hi and from that point on, they were in love.
Not really. Her name was Kate1909 so Alec (keep in mind that Alec is being a total douche right now on purpose) asked if 1909 stood for her year of birth and then followed that delightful question with “I like em old.” Well, on that note, Taylor and I left those two alone. Alec also proceeded to run away and follow us to the costume shop, also in Varrock, to buy some neat clothes. Before the RS2 update you could only obtain these clothes through minigames but now you can just walk in and uy your own zombie outfit. Fine by me. I bought all of them. I needed to do something with all this money I’ve been earning through the Squeal of Fortune and whatnot.
Kate1909 started Private Messaging Alec after he left asking him what he meant by “I like em old.” What the heck do you think he meant?! Alec didn’t really know how to respond so he just ignored her for a while. After we all had costumes I wanted to take a picture with all of us and Alec wanted some text to be in the screen shot. When I said “go” he was to send his message; however, when he clicked to show the message, “I’ve got a half chub right now” he actually sent it to Kate1909. Poor girl. All caught up in a world she couldn’t possibly understand. As damage control, he sent “yolo” as a follow-up. Right. How cute? Taylor and I are rolling over laughing while Alec claims he and Kate1909 are in love. He tried proposing but she refused. Seeing how she’s only 15, that would make sense. She still has her whole RS life ahead of her.
Kate1909 and A Man262 hitting it off.
Then we prepared to enter the Wilderness. To get to the Wilderness from any location, lodestone teleport to Edgeville and head North until you reach the wall. This wall is much like the entrance to the deep desert or the holy water-covered cave mouth in the mausoleum. You will get a warning before entering the Wilderness. Why? Well, if you get killed in the Wilderness you lose all your stuff…oh, and perchance there is some stranger walking by all your things, they can take them. This leads to high-level players hanging out in the Wilderness, hunting down lower levels, and then taking their things. It’s a cruel world out there. (Hint: If anyone EVER asks you to go out into the Wildy with them, DO NOT GO. They are going to kill you and take your things.) This is why before we left we all stopped at the Edgeville bank, put on our best armor, stocked up on food, and filled our quivers. Once we were adequately prepared (a.k.a. I had food because out of the three of us, I was most likely to be killed by some random) we walked up to the wall and entered the Wilderness…
It’s a horrid place.
