Just a debate I'd like some opinion on from the W42 Community. Here are some points I'd like to address:

A) Teleporting -ic- from one city to the next via loadstone, teleport runes, tabs, portals, spirit tree, etc.
(The Same frame of time is upheld, whereas the player who is -ic- moves one location to the next with nearly 0-travel time.)

B) Transportation -ic- via ship, gnome transport, etc.
(Is any travel time equated for, or is this also considered "instantaneous?";)

C) Would you consider there to be separate formalities followed in war-time scenarios whereas, ONLY in these cases instantaneous teleportation/transportation is illegitimate?

Please keep this post on topic regarding the legitimacy of -ic- teleportation, and provide examples of what you think is legitimate vs illegitimate, if any. Based on the replies, I'll try to keep a vote tally going to get an idea of how the W42 Community views this.

Nolfinwë always has used the pendant of crystals around his neck to teleport from charged locations. There are limits on this, of course; he can't pick a crystal off the ground in Tirranwn and use it to teleport straight into the throne room of Varrock. However, he can travel to a spot in the world, designate a crystal on the pendant that is not in usage, and then use that crystal to teleport to said location after a short charge-up period as long as he has that crystal.

Just a bit of custom lore there for you that I refuse to give up no matter how illegitimate it is.



Edit: I just realized how off-topic this post could be interpreted as lmfao cba so tired

There's nothing illegitimate about teleporting for the most part; it exists naturally in RuneScape's lore. Though certain means of teleportation are seen as iffy (such as portal usage or teleporting to locations that aren't hubs listed in the spellbook), it remains fairly reasonable from what I've seen.

There are also gatestones, which allow the teleported to arrive at the location of a focus point (another gatestone), which are also iffy as they're not seen commonly in lore.

As for lodestones, I tend to not pay them much mind as I consider them a tool for game-play; for the Adventurer so to speak. My head canon says that only people with skill in teleporting can use them.


Transportation through ships and carriages will always be under the will of the person using them, and then timescaling things come into play and it gets complicated. It only becomes important when it's the transport and moving of troops or ships for wars and things.

I think everyone on W42 agrees that teleporting is legit when done in an acceptable way to them.

I think everyone on W42 agrees that people who mass drop troops somewhere (by teleportation or transportation) during wartime are kind of dicks who want an unfair advantage over the other side.

There isn't much to debate here. Like Gale (Vekon) already said, there's many ways to get from point A to point B and there is no reason for you to not explore those ways. All you have to do is make sure your actions are fair and fun towards the people you are interacting with during your roleplays and you're golden.

Pretty much what he said. Teleportation is a legitimate thing, it was shown to be something anyone can do, so long as it is charged, focused and has the right runes to use. If not done right it can send you to the abyss. Overall there is no issue with teleportation but the fact it is used so much to escape dangerous means and so.

Teleportation is legitimate, though I don’t want to see anything short of Gods hold up portals to spill troops through.

Lodestones specifically, you need to visit before to unlock. This means knowing their exact location, going there once without magic, then being able to go back. You can't carry anything big, nor bring troops en masse. Odds are your entire army hasn't visited a weird rock South of Varrock, especially if you are from Camelot.

As for Transportation, not instantaneous by far. Get ready for a lot of sitting and waiting on a boat. In Wartime, it might not even make landfall because of blockades. Most forms other than Ships are iffy though. (Looking at you, Gnome air.)

In my eyes, teleportation should be a hard skill to master ic'ly. Then it would take down the number of people who go "O, I'm about to die huh? Well jokes on you cuz my guy can TELEPORT"

Other than that, yeah teleportation is ok.

Sadly that wouldn't take down that number.
