Shameless boredom post below, readers beware.

Hi all!
I used to play runescape semi-religiously when I was a youngin'. It warms my heart to see osrs mobile and client based have a pretty popular come back. Sadly my old character Lord Critias is lost to the RS3 swirling whirl-pool of nothingness. But, I'm enjoying rebuilding a new character in new interesting ways. Currently at 84 magic and counting, trying to hit that sweet-sweet 99. Barely ever touched magic before.

It is surprising to me how much easier leveling and doing quests is now that I am an adult, and my lovely wife Corinne loves seeing me enjoy myself. Even with the good, old fashioned teasing about playing a game as old as runescape.

Still, with several years worth of play time, it is like settling into an old comfy arm chair of justice and dragon-slaying. So, feel free to drop a post and say hi. Let me know some of your favourite skilling activities. Or just tell me something about yourself, or catch me on the Discord.

Fair winds and following seas, my friends.

Welcome back!

I've had a similar experience in noticing how much better I am at games like this compared to when I played them as a kid, and even as a teenager. And, I assume it's the same for everyone, but when I was younger I had no idea how bad I was, I only see it now as an adult. I often wonder if the appeal of playing these old mmos over more modern ones is simply that we can now achieve something that was subconsciously ingrained into us as being desirable in our formative years, like getting good stats or wealth in Runescape.
Anyone that wants changes to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.
