Cool Bump Service

You should try these guys out, to help bump your thread. Free bump services.



I appreciate the recommendation, however I do not like my threads to be full of posts that just say "Bump."

I like the Post number on my threads to accurately reflect the level of discussion present therein.

I personally find it very misleading when I see a thread with 1k+ posts and think "wow some really in-depth discussion is going on here." And when I check, It's just pages and pages of "Bump" with maybe a comment or two scattered throughout.

Player can also artificially create artifacts.

Player uses Enchanted Key to go back in time.
Player gets some cruddy play, poem, song, or what not signed by some semi-famous historical artist. Bury it in a "library" somewhere that the player would know to find it but no one else would. Turn it in.
Player finds any piece of local weapon, pottery, from the aftermath of a battlefield or sneaks it away from the town. Again, bury it somewhere that the player would know to look for it later.

In these cases, you pretty much do loophole abuse:
you bury the item centuries/millenia in the past. It is a legitimate item (poem, song, jewelry) of the place and era.
you then dig it up in present era (or good percentage chance that you fail to dig it up as someone else may have found it since then beating you to it) and take credit for some historical find

Similarly ... go back in time ... kill a creature ... bury it out of the way.
Dig it up back up and present the fossils.

As hilarious as this sounds, unfortunately the Enchanted Key does not allow you to enter the past with any items on you except for the key and it does not allow you to leave the boundaries of the one house you visit during the quest.

Oh, you are quite correct about the physical limitations of where you are. A small bubble (ie: Guthix's cave during The Light Within, the house/farm in Meeting History).

Remember, within each of those bubbles ... you did quite a bit.
You told the future to Guthix, especially his death. It didn't resonate well with him. He also taught you how to put Seren back together.
In meeting history, you helped a boy start his path to becoming one of history's greatest wizards, you helped a young woman get over a health problem and become an adventurer, you planted some trees, you influenced Seren coming to the planet when Guthix eventually requested it..

That said, it is quite possible that there would be something within the bubble.
The goal is to have well preserved relics/artifacts or writings or art.

When you have your wits about you, you don't need much else.

You just find an item.
Dig a deep hole with whatever is handy.
Put the item in.
Fill in the hole.
Dig it up later.

Or knock a hole in a wall. Plug the item in. Seal the hole. Open it up later to see if the item might still be there.

The real paradox would be to repeat this thousands of times with the same item. The item would continue to age over these thousands of years each time, resulting in an item that is millions of years old. You could produce an item older than the universe of Runescape itself.
