Some of you have maybe heard this story before, I know I've told it...

I started playing on Runescape Classic, after having heard about it from some friends online. I'd never played anything like this, no mmorpgs, not even any similar singleplayer games. So I played through Tutorial Island, and landed in Lumbridge, having not a clue what I was doing or what was going on around me. I walked around a bit, and suddenly I got attacked by a horrible, horrible pker named Highwayman! D: For those of you who never played RSC, you should know that when you entered combat, you were stuck there for 3 rounds (all weapons had the same speed, so 3 hits for each combatant) before you could even try running away. He didn't manage to kill me in 3 hits, so I tried running away, but I didn't run far enough because he attacked me again! Another 3 rounds! I think the same thing happened once more, then a higher level player took mercy on me and told me to RUN! and attacked the Highwayman for me. And I ran and I ran and I ran and I ran, and hid inside the building with the furnace.

So scared! D:

I told the friend who'd originally told me about RS about my scary, scary start, and although he'd really quit some time ago, he offered to log on and make me some proper armour. He logged on, and omg he was so cool. He was like level 79 and was wearing black clothes (priest robes) and a RUNE 2H! Which was the absolute best weapon you could have at the time. He mined ore and made me a full set of iron armour and weapon, and I wanted to pay him back as much as I could, so I gave him every single gp I'd found, and also this white... pearl thing? I didn't know what it was, but it looked valuable to me. He told me to keep my white bead as I might need it later, but accepted my cash Razz

One of the proudest days in my RS life was the day when the same guy randomly logged back on, years later. By then, I was doing pretty well, and realising that I would've probably quit on the first day if not for his help, I asked if there was anything at all I could do for him. And he said, clearly not expecting me to be able to pay this crazy expensive thing but since I'd asked... that he'd quite like a full set of rune armour. It felt so good to be able to just go and buy him exactly the thing he wanted - I wasn't very rich at the time, so my bank did take a noticeable hit, but as I figured I owed every single thing I'd accomplished on RS to his help on my first day, it was still ok by me. He was like a god to me on my first day, and now I was able to easily give him this present, that he wasn't expecting to ever be able to pay for himself Very Happy

I first started playing after rs2 beta, but only f2p. I quit because I got lured in my full rune (took like a month to buy it mining coal).
Then over time I started playing again, on multiple accounts. I quit a lot of them because I wanted to use different names.

In 2007 I bought membership finally, for the first time. I had sold enough big bones to buy full rune again, and this was the time gwd, ba, and pking were popular. It was also when runescape first updated their graphics (old red compass and two lizards were given a fresh new look).

Mining coal was always my source of cash, so that's why I have abnormally high mining on most of my accounts Razz

My oldest cousin introduced me to the game 7 or 8 years back, was classic when he showed me the game and when my account was made. But I didnt play on it till Runescape2 and I didnt really play frequently till about 4-5 years back =)

I think it was 6 years ago, my best friend's cousin told her about runescape and she tried it and told me about it. She stopped playing like 1 week after she started, but I liked it and just kept playing...

I'm just curious...How did everyone of you find out about RuneScape?

I myself found out about it in 6th grade when a bunch of my friends were talking about it during class and decided to try it out.
