RuneScape is one of the largest, most expansive online fantasy games on the web today. It has over 200 million registered accounts and a loyal following that continues to make incredible use of its bravery, intuition, cunning and wit to explore the game world, discovering adventure, battling rival clans and conquering a massive online world.
While in the fantasy world of Gielinor, players can develop their abilities in a number of skills, such as fishing, crafting and smithing. They can then use these talents to complete a variety of exciting quests, battle monsters or get involved in the thriving RuneScape economy.
RuneScape continues to expand all the time, but membership can open up whole new areas to conquer. A RuneScape subscription will grant you access to a world over three times larger than that found in the free game, with more than 150 additional quests to test your abilities. Subscribers will also be able to learn and practice nine new skills, and will have access to 20 minigames that are available to members only.
When players enter RuneScape, they are armed with more than armour and a shield. They are armed with the tools and resources they need to have a safe and fun gaming experience. In the other sections of the Safety Centre, you will find out more about these facilities.
