I have played Runescape on and off since I was about 11 or 12 which was a year or two after it's release in 2001. Now I haven't played on the same account since then mainly because I can't remember what I originally set it up as, but the current account I use I've had since college and was a premium member for some time before returning back to a free player as I don't have as much time to justify paying for the membership. Though I would seriously get it again and maybe will some day. I can't really advance or do quests at the moment since I've completed all the free stuff, but it's still fun just to hop up every now and then just to see what's changed. Since there's not much I can do anymore in the game and it was one of my favorites, I thought it would be a fun idea to put together a little Beginner's Guide of Runescape.
