I found myself in a void of infinite nothingness.
I tried to think of how I got there. I mean, I did everything right. I skilled. I quested. I helped noobs (sometimes). I gained XP. I trained Slayer. I did bossing ........ oh ....... no .....
I cried out "Death? Harold? Not funny man!" Some time passed. I don't know how long. "C'mon Mr. Reaper. Please? Respawn me?"
It finally dawned on me. Maybe I could teleport out!!! But I checked. I didn't have anything in my inventory. I didn't have my gear. Nothing. Just like the void I was in.
I tried one last thing: Home Teleport. It never failed. I tried it. I drew the circle. I felt the surge of energy. I blinked (I think). But I was still here. In nothingness. Worst, it seems I couldn't teleport again. Ever.
I began to wander around the nothingness. Unsurprisingly, for a very long time, I found nothing.
Then. In the distance. I heard what sounded like muttering. I followed the sound for what felt like ages. It was a person.
Despite the absence of light, I could sort of see him.
"Hey!" I called out to him. It took several tries before I finally got his attention.
"Oh. Hi." he weakly replied.
"Oh good Guthix I finally found someone. Where are we? What is this place?"
He shrugged. "The Pit of Despair."
It wasn't much of an answer. But, it was a start. "Look, uhm, is there a way out of here?"
He shrugged again. This time, I could see he meant 'no'.
"Well. Uh, what is there to do?"
He weakly smiled "Nothing."
"Just nothing?"
He nodded.
"Really. Just ... nothing?"
His smile turned even creepier. "No grinding. No questing. Just ... AFKing. And bank staring."
"Bank staring?"
His smile turned manic. "Oh yes. Just stare into your bbbeeeaaauuutttiiiiifful bank."
I was starting to see where this was going.

He started rambling off items that were in his bank. Tools. Burnt food. Collections of cheap stuff. I remembered their values on the GE. Then he started going into other items.
Items I remember from events in the past or removed after updates.
It then seemed like something dawned on him and his smile turned into something terrifyingly sinister. He started to laugh like it was the first time in eons "I'm rich. I'm so ... so ... rich!" Then his laughter turned to despair "... all that gp ... and nothing to spend it on ... nothing at all ... "
He slumped over and started to wander off and continued to mutter to himself.
I must have blinked or something. Because the next thing I knew, he was gone. The deafening silence. The closest thing I had found to something in there, now gone. I tried calling out to him ... to anyone ... but ... of course ... nothing.
I sat down on what I could only assume was the ground. "I just need to exercise the mind. That's all. Keep the mind sharp and everything will be ok. Don't want to end up like ... uh ... what was I thinking about again?"
I stared into the void.
I stared into nothingness.
I could start to see the items I once had. I could see all the items I dreamed about. I could see items that ... someone ... once talked about ... but now ... they were mine ... all .... mine. In my bank.
I stared at everything in my bank.
How much time passed? I don't know. I'm not worried. I have my bank. Oh. It seems I'm talking to myself.
I hear someone coming in the distance.
They ask strange things. Why won't they let me stare at my bank?
They ask where we are. I say the Pit of Despair. But is it really despair. I have everything I need. Want.
They ask how to leave. There is no how. Why? Everything is here.
I tell them everything I have.
They are mean. They told me that this stuff is gone. Wait? Gone? I'm the only 1 to have these now? I'm rich. RICH!

But wait. There's ... nothing ... here ...
No one to buy from.
No one to sell to.
This ... noob ... can't afford any of my stuff. They can't afford anything.
They have nothing.
I have everything!
I have ... nothing .... no no ... that's not right.
I have!
I have ....
I .... have ....
Things are quiet again.
What was I thinking about?
What was I saying?
Where is my bank?
I stare into the void.
I stare into nothingness.
I .... have .... this?
