Runescape Campfire Tales - One Player To Rule Them All . . .

But how rich am I talking? I'm talking:
Max partyhat stacks
Max christmas cracker stack
Max spirit shard stack
Max spirit shard pack stack
Max stacks of every single rare item in the entire game
Max stacks of every single high-value commodity in the game (god wars items, drygore weaponry, dragon items, the list goes on)
Max stacks of virtually everything of moderate value and high demand, right down to simple things like needles, buckets, and tinderboxes, because gp is acquired so quickly that it has to be re-allocated into something that can retain its GP value.
This person has acquired a position SO high up on the wealth scale, that a max cash stack will without a doubt look like 1gp from his standpoint, because it can be so easily obtainable. He could give away 10 max cash stacks a day, but could come back with 15 at the end of the day. THAT'S how wealthy of a player I'm talking about.
So RSC. . . do YOU think that a player like this could exist?

It is possible to merchant more money everyday but eventually you are limited. There is a 1 or 2 per 4Hr buy limit on party hats, which can be flipped for under 20M each. And you are limited to 6 G.E. slots. (Assuming this person doesn't transfer wealth between accounts.)
I assume max drygore doesn't exist yet .
And if such a player did exist they would have already been rolled back by Jagex, because he is too influential. Or succumbed to selling his gold, because let's face it just 'Max Shards' is currently valued over 10 thousand USD (Assuming 20-25c/M), if my math is correct.
To elaborate on that, if people didn't know such an account existed it would have no effect on the short-term economy, and this being a game the long-term economy is always up in the air.

Some players do have huge collections of everyday items, like tinderboxes that you mentioned, and this influences the item's ge price. For instance the guy in this thread has a large collection of pestle and mortar and his buying them has contributed to their price rising dramatically. In the past there were also merch clans which could have a short-term influence on prices. People who collect items can have such an impact as they manage to to gain control of a large amount of the total items available. I do not think a single player could accumulate enough gp to have an influence over the Runescape economy like this, the amount of gp in the game is simply too large for even the very richest of players to have a sizable proportion of it.
