My friend in like 4th grade. I saw him killing a mugger and instantly wanted to kill one too l0l


As soon as I completed tutorial island, I dropped into Lumbridge and started exploring. Ran into a muggler, had the most intense lvl 3 vs muggler fight ever. Ended up just barely beating him, and was overwhelmed with the feeling of triumph/ relief. However that feeling was very short lived as the muggler respawned and killed me for all of my tutorial island items.

OT: I started playing in 7th grade (2004), after overhearing my friend Dan screaming at two of my other friends because they BSed him for full rune + battle axe the previous night...Good times.

Back in Feb '07 in 5th grade a few of my friends begged me to play. I saw people play it in the library before and I thought it looked like such a stupid game. After I played it I got hooked though. I thought gp was priceless so I would help my friends with homework for like 10gp lol. I quit in 2011-2012 and came back when Old School was introduced. I was the only one of my friends in real life to get skillcapes even though I was the last of my friends to join.

A friend showed me the game back in 06 or 07. I was extremely intrigued and quickly became addicted. Sadly he quit the game in ~2010, i'm still going strong though!

The first thing I killed was a goblin. I went on a rampage, trying to kill them all lol. Each one dropped a few coins and it added up to 100gp in the end, i thought i was rich.

Later on i went exploring too, and stumbled across varrock. I went into the sword shop and fell in love with the mithril longsword. So I set about making money for it...(even though i couldnt wield it)

And a short while after buying it, i got jumped by a tree spirit, died and lost my beloved sword

My friends and my cousin wher playing a game names RuneScape. I first didn't like the game I did hate it so ****ing much. But then afterwards watching my friend fighting in barbaian village with lobsters it became a bit more interested. Also after 3 months my cousin told me he made an account (even when I didn't ask him to make) and I told him why he did that. He said I thought maybe you could play together with us. So when my mom was going to her sister and I asked my mom if I could take the laptop with me. She said ok I took it came to my cousin and he teached me to play. Magic was then the funniest skill for me

It was a schoolmate back in 2006 who invited me to play it. I didn't stick with it at first but then went back to it and found out about real life friends who also played and we'd play together.

Pretty sure we were looking for a game to play online... so bored of the standard flash games of the time. We wanted something new. Fighting the men was the most intense thing back in the day.

I moved houses back in Grade 5 (2004) and one of my classmates (and to this day a close friend) was playing Runescape more or less everyday. We had become neighbours and whenever I'd go over to his place or he'd come over to mine he'd always be playing, so I decided to give it a try; and here I am 10 years later.

My older half-brother came over to my house one Saturday night, May 6, 2006. He was going to play RuneScape, but I remember it was down at the time. About an hour later it came back up and I decided to create an account. I told him I wanted an account named "Swords123", but that name was taken, and Jagex suggested my name should be "Swurds123". I took that name and have played RuneScape on and off ever since in about 2 month-long periods.

I was very young at the time and when I got back to school on Monday we had to write about what we did the previous weekend. I remember writing about RuneScape and my name and nobody in the class understood me, as I started at a very young age. I would love to find that journal entry. However, since I was so young when I started, It took me 5 years at least before I could actually play the game. It was strange being the level 25 member.
