______________¤ The Scrying Pool - Questing & Lore Clan ¤________________
_______________________APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN_______________________


Howdy clan-searchers! Do you like hunting down every bit of information you can find on your favorite characters? Do you relish in knowing and speculating on what's coming next in the game and the story? Do you like the lore of Runescape?

Yeah, lore - the story and personality of the game itself. Those epic sagas we play as quests, and the backstory behind them all. Tales of God Wars and Mahjarrat, Elves and Vampyres, Other Worlds and secret places. From the settling of Gielinor to the death of Guthix and beyond, The Scrying Pool is a clan that loves this stuff.

Many players just use guides and skip through dialogue in quests, don't pay attention to the cutscenes in them, or never read the books that can be found, and it's a shame, really, because RuneScape has such a deep and rich story when you give it the proper chance. We are a community of players who gave it that chance, and enjoy the game that much more because of it.

While that is our focus, we're players too, playing the game together as any other clan, with events of all sorts and varieties for any player. We delve into dungeons, fight bosses, fish, cook, fletch, summon, and smith... but you know what? Things are different once you know the story behind them. Maybe you already know that, and would like to expand that knowledge, or maybe you want to give it that first proper chance. Either way, we'll be here, waiting for that quest update day, wondering what adventures will await us this time...

___________________¤ Clan Features & Details ______________________

• We currently have a completely upgraded Tier 7 Citadel, which we use for events and meetings, and the battlefield too.

• We have an off-site forums/website we use for announcements. Ask a leader about it!

• An open Discord server

• We have over 200 clan members. It seems like a lot, but our community is really close.

• None of our events, including the citadel, are mandatory. While we take pride in the uniqueness of some of our events, no one is forced to go to them.

• Our ranks are based on participation and involvement in lore/future updates-related areas. However, like everything else, this is not mandatory.

• All followers of any god, or no god, are welcome here. You will notice our clan is very diverse in our 6th Age choices, we even have those truly devoted to Bandos. So even if you're a part of one of the less popular factions, fear not, for we appreciate everyone. There is no discrimination - however, we do have friendly debates.

• Our clan leaders are Amascut and Awalterskong

• Our clan chat's name is The Scrying Pool

If you have any questions about the clan, feel free to post them here or PM any of the leaders online at the time.

___________________¤ Requirements to Join ¤_______________________

• Interest in RuneScape's Lore/Story, RuneScape Quests, or Future Updates.
• Active in the game and in the clan
• Your Adventurer's Log must be enabled and public so we can verify the quests you have completed. Exceptions can be made. We like to see more quests completed than not, as we may talk about spoilers in chat, but we're not restrictive. A passion for lore regardless of quests complete is all we ask!
• Hang out in the Clan Chat for about a day or so after a successful application. Once that time passes, one of us will be sure to recruit you officially!

____________________________¤ Clan Rules ¤____________________________

The rules below apply to both clan members and guests visiting the clan chat.

1. Chat Moderators will keep the peace of the clan chat. They have the authority of the Clan Leadership in all chat-related matters. You may be formally warned first, but do not abuse this privilege – rule breaking WILL be punished in all scenarios. If you have any questions or concerns about the actions of a Chat Moderator, speak to the moderator or a leader in private.

2. Respect other clan members and guests; do not be rude, harass, maliciously troll, or flame them. Be welcoming to new members. Everyone has their opinions and they may differ from your own. Should an issue arise the discussion will be moved outside of the clan chat. Debates are fine as long as they follow the rules and are not excessively repetitive. Basically, don’t be a jerk.

3. Do not engage in activities that seriously disrupt the clan chat or discussion. This includes but is not limited to: excessive roleplaying, flame wars, general spam, excessively controversial topics, and disrespect to others. A good rule of thumb is that if someone complains about it, and has good reason to (as judged by a Chat Mod or Administrator), it will stop. Don't bait others to break the rules either - this is also not acceptable.


4. Do not maliciously reveal plot spoilers. For significant updates (such as quests), the clan chat may be muted to prevent spoilers for a 24 hour period, or longer if the clan leaders see fit. Update discussion during these times will be moved to one of various friends chats. The Clan leader’s friends chat is always open for discussion unless otherwise stated.

5. Political, Religious, explicit, or other controversial real world discussion is not encouraged, but allowed. It will be monitored closely. If it becomes abrasive or someone asks for it to stop, then it ends or must be moved out of the clan chat.

6. All JaGeX rules apply.

7. Other situations may arise that are not covered by these rules. The Scrying Pool reserves the right to take actions based on these unique circumstances when needed.

8. Scryers must be familiar with the most recent version of the rules. It's your responsibility as a clan member to keep up to date on these rules. We will make all effort to let the clan know when these rules have been changed or adjusted.

9. Please remember that we're not going for rules that are extremely rigid. As such, if you've been punished, please don't aim to use the "letter of the rule" as an argument, while ignoring the spirit of the rule. These rules are intentionally a bit open, but they exist for a reason!

______________¤ How to Become a Scryer in 5 Easy Steps ¤________________

Step 1: Apply on this thread. In the post above, you should find a relatively simple application, so just fill it out and post it here! Our recruiters will stop by and review your application in approximately 1-2 days. If it takes longer, feel free to PM any of the Coordinator or above ranks!

Step 2: When your application is accepted, we will ask that you hang out in the Clan Chat for a short time before you join us officially. That way we can get to know you before you join the clan and you can find out of the clan is right for you.

Step 3: Get to know the community! Stop by, say hi, and really spend some time with us to ensure we're the clan you want to join. Once around one or two days have passed, and you're still on board, PM either of the Clan Leaders (Amascut, Awalterskong) to move forward. If neither are around, just ask the clan members to ask around, they should be happy to help.

Step 4: Join the clan! You're now a part of the Scryers! Hang out, talk lore, pitch theories, take part in events and more!

Step 5: Additional Info. Once you've joined officially you will be ranked up to Corporal. Anything you need to know about the clan can be found on our On-Site Clan Forums! Any additional questions you might have can be happily answered by any of Clan's Moderation team.

____________________________¤ Clan Ranks ¤___________________________

* Recruit - Fresh recruit rank, and very rarely a mute rank. This rank is applied to anyone who has joined the clan within the last week.

* Corporal - This rank is for the newest members of the clan. Anyone who has been in the clan for under 3 months will be this rank.

* Sergeant - This rank is for your general TSP members. Anyone who has been in the clan from 3 months to 1 year will generally be this rank.

* Lieutenant - This rank is for your long-term members. Anyone who has been in the clan for over a year will generally be this rank.

* Captain - Anyone who has been in the clan for longer than a year and a half will generally be this rank. This rank displays a clan member's excellence in lore, hard work for the clan, and other special contributions.

* General - Anyone who has been with the clan for 3 or more years may be this rank. This rank shows extreme dedication to the clan and/or to the lore. Users with this rank are rare, but have been a core part of TSP for a long time.

All Ranks from this point on are part of the Moderation team in some way

* Admin - This is the Avatar Warden rank, but is mostly out of use due to clan permission bugs.

* Organiser - This rank is for Chat Moderators.

* Coordinator - This rank is for Event Organizers

* Overseer - This rank is for the Moderation and Events team leaders.

* Deputy Owner - This is an Owner rank. It is currently held by Awalterskong and Amascut's alternate account Seren. It is no different from the Owner rank in powers.

__________________________¤ Our History ¤_______________________*

What would a clan based on lore be without its history?

Our roots are in the Future Game Updates forum, the descendants of the community that first made that forum, known as Future Update News, or FUN. They compiled all information about future updates that JaGeX had planned: quotes, confirmations, speculations on Behind the Scenes articles and decrypted Postbags from the Hedge. The Future Updates forum continued to thrive for years. One fateful day, Yuccon had an idea to form a clan based on Future Updates, which was dubbed The Scrying Pool.

Yuccon, along with Zoinkwiz, Xaror and Moe is 4210, led the clan through its best moments, like when the Strange Power happened, and through its worst, like when the Future Updates forum was removed. The burden of reality eventually swept away our first leaders, so Robo Hobo, Im Rubic and Graar stepped up to take their places. During the year that they led the clan, the new leaders made all kinds of efforts to connect us further. Among the initiatives to get clan members more involved were a quest video/transcript project, in-game lore lessons and an attempt at creating a lore wiki.

For his final act, Robo Hobo led the campaign to have an official lore forum. Over 200 people put in their support, asking the Jmods whenever possible. Together the months of effort paid off - the lore forum was released as the 6th Age officially began. Soon after, this age of leadership ended as well. After that, leadership shifted to Geena-berry, Zoinkwiz and Awalterskong. The led the clan during the early 6th Age of the lore, and the clan thrived.

During mid-2014, Geena-berry and Zoinkwiz stepped down, leaving behind Awalterskong and promoting Amascut, which are the current leaders. They are both excited and eager to helm the clan, as the game progresses further into the sixth age, and the 2nd God War rages...
