30th January 2003 - Bandwidth
The San Francisco servers have now been upgraded to work through a
faster network switch. The upshot of all this is that there is now three
times as much bandwidth, and players should experience less lag to these
30th January 2003 - Letters 9 online
We are pleased to announce the release of the ninth 'letters' page, which
you can check out through the main Letters section.
We're not so pleased about what seems to be going on with the
RuneScape gods at the moment though...
29th January 2003 - Runescape
romance turns real
Yet more wedding bells! So Runescape rings DO have special properties.
"I started playing 8 months ago...The last thing I was looking
for was another relationship, especially via an internet game. But find
one I did, or it found me..."
Lady Pooh met Topcat0711 whilst playing Runescape, and being more
charming than the seven hundred odd Topcats that had preceeded him, they
soon became trading partners. An act of chivalry took the relationship to
a whole new level.
"One day he'd won a stake duel... because of the winnings I
teasingly said 'hey wanna be my rs bf?' not meaning it... But after that
we joked about it and kept talking, until we fell in love through
Runescape and got to know each other better."
Lady Pooh, who hails from Ohio in the USA, is now set to become
Mrs.Topcat0711. She even flew over to his native Australia, swapping
server-lag for jet-lag to be with her new love.
"I've been here in Australia for 6 weeks now and we get along
great! We are making long term plans and its all thanks to you! We just
wanted you to know that you created more than just a game...it's a
connection to life and happiness." So it's official then: Cupid does
exist. As an NPC in Runescape.
29th January 2003 - In low HP,and in
It had to happen eventually. When 200,000 people interact online, it
can only be a matter of time before someone pops the question...
We heard from PugXSi, a veteran of Runescape who is currently 4th
overall with 1473 total stats. At 99 in magic and 96 in firemaking, there
was still one stat that seemed to be eluding him: romance. Then Runescape
"gave me something I didn't think possible- eternal happiness with a
The woman in question was Jenstarr, a regular of the Dwarven mines.
PugXSi soon noticed that she was a bit handy with a pick. "She worked
extremely hard to become a rune miner...I hadn't seen such devotion to a
Sensing that they had struck gold, the two miners would chat online
for hours. "It didn't take me long to develop real feelings for
her", and an in-game marriage duly followed. Some time later, PugXSi
flew from England to the U.S. to meet Jenstarr in person.
A second trip took place at Christmas, but it was more than just
santa hats that were up for grabs. On January 3rd PugXSi and Jenstarr got
married at a local courthouse. "Runescape is the sole factor in
bringing Jen and I together, and for that, Jagex will always have our
gratitude." Don't thank us, PugXSi, thank the magic of the runes.
28th January 2003 - Dangerous
All budding athletes and gymnasts out there will be pleased to know
that there is now an even better way of improving your agility. Just head
down to your nearest deep wilderness...
We've put in a high level assault course for anyone who is hell-bent
about building their agility XP. So pack yourself a napsack and get ready
for some serious lava-dodging action.
Of course you do run the risk of dying painfully in a hail storm of
arrows, but nobody said that getting perfect abs would be easy. As our
head of Customer Support would say: no pain, no gain.
28th January 2003 - Report Abuse
Please note that that the report abuse button is for serious abuse only.
Before you contact customer support, please try to make the distinction
between malicious insults and friendly banter.
So please do not report people just for the sake of getting them
into trouble- we're not trying to create a police state here!
Certainly we are keen to crack down on those who are spoiling the
game for others, but we also want to strike a balance with the idea of
freedom of speech.
The upshot of this is that you should only report someone if you
feel genuinely offended or upset by what they are saying.
Sensitive souls should note that the Runescape chat filter is
already there to stop people from swearing. I think I speak for everyone
at Jagex when I say that I hate such crudeness as much as the next
massively multi-player online roleplaying game; but if a word has already
been censored, you don't need to report it.
By the same token, it is a waste of time getting into 'tit for tat'
abuse reports. We try not to get involved in petty squables, and we have
no plans to introduce a Report Abuse abuse button...
28th January 2003 - Gnomeball
Sporty types will be pleased to know that they can now take part in the
world-famous game of gnomeball. Down at the gnome stronghold, those cheeky
little gnomes have cleared a piece of land about the size of a football
pitch, and err, decided to play football on it. Well, almost.
Firstly, when I say football, I am not referring to the game where
people try to propel a spherical object with their foot- hence football.
Rather, this game is closer to the American version of the sport,
where huge musclebound gladiators enact a fusion of chess, war and ballet
whilst hitting each other with heavily reinforced plastic. Hence football.
Take away the chess, ballet and plastic and you've got gnomeball,
where tackling your opponent basically means wacking them as hard as you
And with gnomes being such good-hearted little creatures, they do at
least have the decency to point out that they're about to hit you. Now
you'd never get that from Warren Sapp.
27th January 2003 - Shilo Village
Rumours of a distant village in the southern part of Karamja Island
have been filtering through. It appears that the mysterious Jungle island
still holds a lot of potential adventure. It is said that strange items
are to be found, unique to this part of the world, ready and waiting for
adventurers brave enough to search for them. Of course, there is hearsay
that these treasures are protected by supernatural guardians, but it's
highly unlikely, surely? Also the jungle has it's own dangers, what with
well camouflaged spiders and the deadly Jungle Ogre. Who knows what terror
lies further south?
When considering all this, it might be best to just stay at home?
Perhaps the danger is too much and the rewards not enough? Yes, brave
adventurer, stay another night in the warm inn, feed your face with
another warm meal and worry not about the untold riches south of Karamja -
or the terrors that guard them.

24th January 2003 - Newsletters
To make use of our exciting new website, we will be posting the Runescape
Newsletter online from now on, and it will NOT be emailed out to players
This will also get round the problem of fake newsletters sent out by
those nasty scamming types, as well as making Saradomin's words of wisdom
available to a much wider audience.
Speaking of his holiness, the big man has been rather quiet in the
last few weeks- I hope he's OK...
24th January 2003 - New Quest
Attention all quest-hungry adventurers!
Some of you may have noticed the lack of updates in the last few
weeks... to the untrained eye it could appear that the Jagex team is
spending all its time updating the website.
But worry not! We are pleased to announce that there will be a big
new update next week, and an exciting new quest from the one they call
Tytn. Those of you who enjoyed his Jungle Potion debut should get ready- 'cos
this time, things get pretty dark...
24th January 2003 - Runescape is
good for you!
Anyone who has played Runescape for a little while will know that massive
sense of achievement you get when you kill off a tough baddie or complete
a long quest. But do such achievements ever spill over into the world at
Apparently so! We heard from one player whose mother was addicted to
smoking before she discovered the wonderful world of Runescape.
According to Zjbirdx- Josh Bubis to his friends- his Mum used to nag
him about playing too much. Finally, she logged on to see what all the
fuss was about.
"Before that, she would smoke so many cigarettes...Now she
hasn't smoked since she started playing."
As Nightfoxe, Marjo Bittle is now working on a whole variety of new
skills, but the inhalation of nicotine isn't one of them. "Now, she
hasn't smoked since she started playing. Thank you so much, you might have
saved her life from cancer or some other problem from smoking. Runescape
is my Mum's anti-drug. THANKS!!!"
No problem Zjbirdx: I'm sure even Zamorak would approve.
23rd January 2003 - Wedding bells at
Simon Brace, Jagex's most eligible batchelor is no
longer eligible. That's right, someone's actually agreed to marry him!
Runescape players will know our husband to be as "modsimon". The
scourge of hackers everywhere, Simon frequently appears on-line, valiantly
fighting customer support related crime.
A certain girl by the name of Becky is the lucky
lady in question, and Simon assures us that her decision was not made
under duress. As the man himself says:
"There's this little lake in Birmingham that we
walked down by after I took her for a meal. I got down on one knee,
whipped my ring out and proposed to her under the stars with swans
watching us on the lake. The diamond sparkled in the moonlight but it
could never compare to the sparkle of her eyes, the way they light up
whenever we're together :-)"
With his fiance preparing to become Mrs Becky Brace,
Simon has set a date for 14th February, 2005, in what promises to be the
mother of all updates in this young man's life. On behalf of Jagex and
Runescape may I take this opportunity to wish you both the very best of
(Now we'd like to say that they fell in love over
Runescape, but that could never really happen... could it?)
21st January 2003 - New News Section
As you will no doubt have noticed, the Runescape news section has had a
makeover. This is part of our effort to communicate to you more often, and
we will be regularly posting news in the appropriate sections that you can
Clicking any of the category names will show only news of that type,
most recent first. Clicking 'All Categories' will show you all news items.
We hope that you will find the new news section easy to use, and
more importantly, up to date with current Runescape affairs.
21st January 2003 - Credit card
Don't accept membership from other players - doing so is dangerous!
We would like to remind everyone that you must NOT allow
another player to pay for your runescape account membership.
If someone offers you either a low level members account or offers
to upgrade your own account to a members account (usually in return for
runescape items), the chances are that the way they are paying will be
fraudulent. When we discover this, we will cancel the payment, and then
ban your account permanently. So please do not fall for this trick.
The general rule is, if its too good to be true, it normally is!
Fraudulent payments will be unearthed and result in automatic and
permanent bans for all concerned. All transactions are logged. We can
track and prosecute anybody attempting to make fraudulent payments. It is
not allowed to pay for the membership of someone outside your family.
14th January 2003 - Siw Midtrud
It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Siw Midtrud,
SIW39, a long time player of Runescape. Siw passed away last month after a
long time fighting against disease.
Siw was an avid player of the game, currently ranked at 512 on the
all-time list, with atttack of 81/81, strength of 91/91 and herblaw of
Siw was popular and well-loved by a great number of the Runescape
community. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends.
11th January 2003 - New website
So by now I imagine you're all enjoying the new
website. Less clutter, more space and generally a more Runescapey feel.
I'm sure there will be some who don't approve, but Runescape will always
have its diehards, ready with an anecdote about the days when you could pk
everywhere, and the economy held its value. Just remember that they will
have fought in more wars than you, so they're entitled to be a bit upset
that inflation has wiped out their pension.
But with Tom's Grand Tree Quest last week, and
Tytn's Zombie Queen Quest coming soon, I'm sure that even the most po-faced
players will be smiling right now. So this might be a good time to point
out that the newsletter is now every two weeks, as the more observant
amongst you will have already noticed.
25th December 2002 - Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas from the Jagex team. We're dropping some Santa hat's
today at random intervals in random places. They're just a bit of fun
though, so please don't be too upset if you can't find one. If you manage
to get more than one then please consider giving them to your friends as Christmas
presents. Of course you can sell them but's not really the spirit of Christmas
