Old school runescape has been made for those who have experienced the eras of 07 onwards (if not beforehand) and with ongoing updates make the game great bit at the same, losing a hit of the nostalgic feel of what old school is all about, with the pet updates, new bosses and activities such as raids, ironman modes, the game is forever expanding but there is one problem, the raw oldschool feel of what it was like to be really oldschool. That when i have come to the idea of giving you... OLD SCHOOL IRONMAN MODE! (By the way)

But no this is not just an ironman as you may have been wondering but it is a mode where you are limited like an ironman but have a different set of rules, some of which are allowed differently to ironmen and some which are new and iconic, a truly solid nostalgic feel to what the oldschool crave.

What is an oldschool ironman based on?
Well we all know that oldschool was amazingly rebooted by an 07 backup but why start there? Oldschool ironman starts from back when the time RuneScape classic ended and RuneScape 2 was born. January 2001. Providing veteran and oldschool players a whole new challenges in gameplay plus the education of RuneScapes history with their updates along the way, which the updates you use will eventually be a reward.

Oldschool ironman consists of starting as you would as if you were starting your account in the January 2001 era and you will have to complete everything you had to do in January 2001 before you can progress to later updates such as February update contents and so on, so certain options would be disabled by default and can only be configured until the date of that configuration has been released. This will also disable items such as bonds or later updated items to be used as bonds was an update that was put in the game post oldschool. And your only way of progression is by completing all of the quests, best in slot armour, and the available quests to level 10 minimum.

January 2001? Seriously? They closed Classic down (that was the version of RS at the time) because of bugs, bots and the code they couldn't make sense of anymore. There's nobody left at Jagex that was around during Classic to understand the code properly.

Goign back to specific versions will also cause issues with (sometimes serious) bugs that were patched one or several updates later.

I think this is way too complicated to be doable.
