    Ladies and gentlemen, Tip.It has been around for a long time. People spend time together talking, and gradually, friendships end up becoming more. Relationships have bloomed over the years that Tip.It has been around, and some of the great relationships live on in our memory. Some of the greats include: Tripsis & PureMageUK D.V. "I'm getting lucky tonight!" Devnull & Sy Accursed Leik & Leik's LEFT Hand It is of no surprise to those in the know then, that two of the more famous Tip.It members have finally announced their engagement, and shockingly, have set the wedding date! It is my great pleasure to announce the union of Miss Lioness and Blaze The Movie Fan! Miss Lioness has long been a fan of efficiency, and after watching the videos of Blaze, fell in love with his masculine voice, and astounding accent. A whirlwind romance followed for her, and she set her flaming heart on Blaze until the end of time. As a moderator, it's unusual for a relationship to be started with a puny user, for of course, moderators are above the common users, on another level, another plane of existence per say. At least, this is the impression we've got so far! Blaze The Movie Fan is a lovely, outgoing young gentlemen, who has long made topics to help the users of Tip.It. Well known for his threads in Help and Advice, he pretends to not know the answers to simple questions and gets training tips so that those who read the thread will gain the knowledge that he hopes for them to one day reach his level of expertise. Blessed as the Almighty Steel Dragon Slayer, his renown in combat is unmatched, and his video making skills put him up at the top of the YouTube subscribers list. What wedding can go ahead without details? Thankfully for you readers, I have managed to get a sneak peak at the hottest wedding of these days! Bride: Blaze The Movie Fan Groom: Mike the Lioness Best man: D.V. "She's taking second best because I'm always the best" Devnull Maid of Honor - Arceus Pastor - Steph Bridesmaids - Salleh, Woodenfruit Flower Girls - Leik, De Elite One, Bxpprod Date - 25/12/2014 at 3pm GMT Location - Brimhaven Dungeon, near the Steel dragons We hope to see you there, so that you too, can witness the beautiful sight of two lovers forever joining their lives! As a present of the happy couple, we invite you to take part in one of our voucher deals! Disclaimer: This thread is for comedic purposes only, and any and all jokes are not the views of the Tip.It Staff team. We hope that you enjoyed the Christmas gift of laughter, and hope that you and your friends have a very happy holidays to come.

    WAIT WAIT WAIT, IT'S NOT FAKE THIS TIME!!! Sure Jason, you're always trolling, we can't trust anything you say... Hey, you shut up! You can trust me if I say I'm being serious! What about that time you tried to convince us that Darkwitchery was a dice host? She was though, that still counts. Good point... go on then, do tell. Ladies and gentlemen, I have left behind the single life forever. I have doomed myself to a life of enslavement. [hide=Spoilers] [/hide] Sally said yes. Yes, this is actually serious. I'm engaged. I also have pizza, this is a good day.

    HYT... The chat of champions. The arena of aristocrats. The conglomeration of conglomerates. HYT is not the kind of area you would expect relationships to spring up. It does not seem like the place where love blossoms, and hearts flutter at the sight of their loved ones, but stranger things have happened... Nearly two years since the last release of HYT Relationships, their have been some shocking changes to relationships, but some things never change... Let's see just how much of a change we've had, shall we...? Dark Marquis Sorator Love has no bounds, including distance. A nuclear relationship, the Russian Scotsman recently expressed his undying love for one of the longstanding HYT moderators, and seduced him through a night marathoner The Lord of the Rings. After a whirlwind relationship, they quickly married to the theme of Pirates of the Caribbean. Some fingers have pointed out that while the completionist Mark is an attentive lover (like a boss), he's quick to ignore the gentle Sorator, and can be abusive if he doesn't get his own way. The only response Mark has given to these comments has been "Doesn't matter, had sex." Brad Maddox/TzTok-Nomad/Starman945 Nova Chonos While both of these glorious men have no nipples, individuality or sexuality, their love will not be denied. Meeting on Skype, they quickly butted heads, leading to a rivalry on who would steal the heart of "Lucld". After a bloody battle, neither of them were victorious, and in their desperation, they tried to work together, stating that the best man would win. After finding the number of keks that they had in common, the top lels prevailed and they abandoned the quest for Zach, and joined their hearts in loving union. It's hoped that Nova's southern tendencies will not resurface, but Brad has vowed that Nova will not be allowed to see his sister again. Drazhor/Drazhar44 Darkwitchery De Elite One An epic love triangle has occurred in recent times. While it's not sure if this is a better love story than Twilight, it can not be denied that this is certainly interesting. Throughout each of the issues of HYT Relationships, Darkwitchery and De Elite One have been together in harmony. There have been bumps along the road, with DEO's obsession with experience gains, Witchery's obsession with Avantoe seeds and both of their obsessions with donations, but their love has been held together by their love of the money made through Darkwitchery's days of hosting dice games. However, the Irish accent has worn down Darkwitchery's endurance over the years, and she has fallen for Drazhor. Kieran's seductive ways have nearly stolen Witchery's affections completely, but DEO has been fight for her love, and while this epic love saga has not concluded yet, it's sure to have an ending as explosive as Kieran's after missing out on a threesome. Kimberly Solemnis Kimberly has had a rocky few years, after her marriage to myself, the messy divorce and the subsequent relationship with Drazhor which nearly ended in castration, and things don't seem to have got much better! Solemnis had long held an affection for Kimberly, and finally had the courage to admit it to her one night after a few drinks. After waking up with a concussion from Kimberly's trusty baseball bat, Solemnis kept after Kimberly with attempts to persuade her to give their love a chance. After nearly a year, Kimberly gave in with one condition; if Solemnis wasn't able to keep her heart for six months, she would have full power to dismember him while he lived and strangle him with his own intestines. Their relationship is currently in its fourth month, and all that's been revealed to the general public as of late is that Solemnis insists that Kimberly dresses in a Gardevoir suit, and that he affectionately refers to her as "waifu". It has yet to be seen if Solemnis will survive the coming deadline, and odds are running high that dismemberment will occur in the months to follow. Crazy Eric Sheepsaurus The insanity of the Eric can not be tamed. It can not be stopped. It can not be survived... but there is one who can tolerate the madness. Sheepsaurus has long held an affection for Eric's moo, Eric's baa, and the rare occasion of Eric's oink. After a six hour relationship that involved an extreme amount of vodka, the two were married in a Las Vegas stripclub. What will come of their union is yet to be seen, as Eric dodges any attempts to question, but one thing is clear for the future. mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Serpent Eye Tranquil Upon the long awaited and unexpected return of the Serpent, Tranquil fell to knees with tears of joy. The love they hold for Serpent could not be held back anymore. Years had been wasted in his absence, but now that he was back, Tranquil was determined to make the most of the time they had left. Serpent has reached the ripe age of seventy four, but love can not be stopped by mere things such as age. The banana trick will reign on forever, and the two have been happily doing their thing since the return. One thing is for sure, and that is Serpent had no defence when it came to Tranquil. Gwynrwyn Lucld Lucld was just a poor newb with no goal in life. He was sad, he was lonely, but worst of all, he was ginger. The meeting with Gwyn changed that for him. Becoming enamored with Gwyn, he vowed to impress with his amazing boss hunting skills. Advancing with speed through the ranks of Magic, he bewitched Gwynrwyn, stealing his love for as long as the spell will last. While setbacks such as being PK'd by Nex for a set of Ascension bows have made Lucld furious, he has stated firmly that Gwynrwyn is the love of his life, and only he will be allowed to touch his portal gun. A Local Guy The Warrior While Warrior has long stated that he is too good for anyone, ALG recently caught his eye. There can be no escape from bewitchment of the Local One, and The Warrior has decided to try to put aside his arrogant ways of being a jerk, and try to be the man that ALG would love. It hasn't worked very well, but ALG is patient (he must have been to be my lawyer for some ugly business long ago), and the two of them seem to be happy together. It'll be a shame when their love is tragically brought to an end when I personally kill The Warrior in the Wilderness, as I promised to long ago. Never forgive. Never forget. Miss Lioness Dragoon5464 Miss Lioness has long claimed that she is asexual, but you can't get more asexual than a raisin. While it's not certain yet what attracts that completionist Lioness to the Dragoon, it's certainly true that sometimes, something beautiful happens in this world. This issue doesn't really know how to explain itself, so it just has to stop. It can only be hoped that Lioness' dreams of burning do not also apply to her boy-toy. eejits/Pretoria SA Shyla/Lady Heinous While the beautiful Shyla has not been around for a very long time, the love that Jess holds for her will never die. Keeping vigilance that can not be matched while hoping for Shyla's return, woe betide the fool who tries to seduce Jess in the meantime. It can only be hoped that Shyla returns soon, before Jess decides to destroy everyone in an attempt to summon the Evil God herself. TheKoolKandy Dragonkng198? Screams of horror aside, Patrick's love for me is pure and hotter than can be explained. The heat when he talks to me or looks at me is enough to melt diamond. Being between us feels like standing in a pool of lava. Death could be the only expectation from the hot-headed tirade that Patrick would give if you tried to step between him and me. While I am not sure if I return the love and affection he shows me, the dates and gifts can certainly not be turned down. Maybe if he spends enough, there could be a future between the two of us.... it'd have to include Subway though. You never know. Mish Fails At RS There isn't a lot that can be said. Look at the order of this relationship. There can be no one worse than Mish. That is all. Ambler Im A Pawya? It has never been hinted at, but the conspiracy has always been there. The hidden love letters, the chocolates sent, and the mysterious text messages from "Gambler3"... The signs are clear. Scambler3 is trying to steal my woman. These slights can not be ignored, and the plan is already in motion to deal with this insult to me. Sally has shown no signs that Pambler3 has any chance of winning her heart, but I must protect my manly honour. Prepare yourself Damnbler3, your death will be long and painful. There has been many gaps between the last issue of HYT Relationships and this one... perhaps there will not be as much of a wait next time... beware. Disclaimer: Please note that not all these relationships may be completely truthful. While most of the sources used for these relationships are reliable, we can not promise that attempts to deny the information found here will not be made. Obviously, anyone that tries to deny these claims come from a communist, and should be shipped out to Russia at the nearest chance. If your relationship is not on this list, please contact our editors. We apologize that not all relationships are on this issue, but we have a limited working team, and we will endeavor to get your relationship and pertinent details on the next issue. Thank you for reading HYT Relationships, and have a good day. Warning. This voucher may be expired.

    Kaqemeex: Hello everyone. Chaeldar: Hi! Fiara: Hello. Death: Hi. Juna: Hey. Valluta: Good morning. Kaqemeex: You all know why we're here, of course. We have to discuss how best to honor Guthix's memory. Valluta: We must remain at our posts. Guthix tasked us to protect this world, and we shall. Juna: Of course. But the world should remember Him. How can we spread the tragic news with dignity and respect? Death: I could kill the Easter Bunny. Fiara: Yes! Perfect! Kaqemeex: Okay, good ideas so far. Anything else? Chaeldar: Butterflies. Butterflies everywhere. Little glowing butterflies that turn to smoke when you touch them. Juna: I like that idea. Kaqemeex: How about some Guthix-themed costumes that we could give out for free? Death: What, like "I Heart Balance" t-shirts? Chaeldar: I can't imagine who would wear those. Juna: I for one have never worn a t-shirt in my life. Valluta: Nor I. Fiara: What's a t-shirt? Death: Hey, I like t-shirts. Fiara: Ooh! I've got it! It's the perfect plan! You guys are gonna love this. Kaqemeex: Yes, Fiara? Fiara: TREES! [silence] Fiara: Really weird trees! [silence] Fiara: Glowing trees with creepy faces that drip a brightly-colored liquid of indeterminate origin. [silence] Fiara: We can put them everywhere. Kaqemeex: Um... Valluta: That's... Juna: The greatest idea I've ever heard! Valluta: I was just about to say that! Chaeldar: Let's do this! Death: I have some great creepy faces we could use. Juna: I can handle the glowing liquid. Fiara: Best. Tribute. Ever.

    Ardougne, 24 Moevyng 170 The earth trembled today as the great god Guthix, one of the most powerful beings in the known universe, was roused from a centuries-long slumber. It quickly stopped trembling, as Guthix immediately went back to sleep. According to witnesses, Guthix, responsible for singlehandedly ending the God Wars that nearly destroyed the world, did proclaim unto his followers: "Just ten more minutes, mommy." "He also said something about needing his rest, and that the cabbage alarm went off too early," said Thaerisk Cemphier, a close follower of the God of Balance who was present at the scene. "At least, that's what we think. He was sort of mumbling, so it was hard to make out." Almost immediately after the event, representatives of Azzanadra held a press conference advocating dumping a bucket of ice water on Guthix's head. When asked why he didn't just set his alarm slightly later, or go to bed slightly earlier, Guthix replied, "Zzzzzzzzzzz [snort] [smacking noise] zzzzzzz." More as the story unfolds.

    What happens when a bootleg game goes through three or four translations? Nothing good, of course, which is a good thing. Does that make sense? No? Good, because I'm playing through one such example of that translation and I'd like the rest of you to be just as confused, disturbed, and amused as I am. Without further ado: [spoiler=WELCOME TO ELF" S WORLD] Ah... The age old question. With such an obvious answer. Now that that's settled, let's get this translation train wreck on the road! Wait, that's actually pretty good English. I'm starting to think that- I spoke too soon. And now that that mess is out of the way, here is our old friend Professor Oak, with the opening narration. ...By which I mean, here is an elf monster wearing Professor Oak's skin. We're wasting no time in boarding the nightmare train. Existed. Past tense. Let that sink in for a bit. Done? Good. We're moving on. Just a warning: I'm probably not going to screenshot entire speeches at 10 words each, so you're going to be treated to only the best out of context quotes. MEANWHILE, IN WHATEVER NEW BARK TOWN WAS TRANSLATED AS: The nightmares continue. I obeyed, and got a phone. But how do I operate the phone? This is how. Got it? Good. There will be a test. Before leaving: a line that should tell you everything you need to know about this game. I then decided to harass talk to the locals. Unfortunately, I don't speak the language. Perhaps someone else could... Nope. But enough of that. Time to get a starter and get this game on the road. There was some stuff in between here. It made about as much sense. I skipped through much of it in the hope that he'd just give me am ELF. My patience was rewarded. Now we're getting somewhere. He walks over to the table and And I suddenly realized that I have no idea what I'm getting into! So, I have one of three options ahead of me. Do I CHANGE FIRED ELF INTO A BIG WIND OF FIRE? Do I take the WATER ELF, LITTLE CROCODILE? Or do I... "GRASS ELF QIGE LEADER MAY LIKE"? The hell? THE CHOICE IS YOURS! GRASS: 6 vote FIRE: 0 vote WATER: 2 vote Changes to this format are all but guaranteed as I figure out what I'm actually doing. This is an experiment, and I may or may not experiment with videos, as screenshots don't do the thing justice. PART 2

    FOOD PORN! Decided that I wanted to do more fresh cooking, so I decided to make a food porn blog for you TIF'ers. You know why? Because [bleep] you. That's why. You get to look at all the nice things I cook and eat, and I can laugh at the knowledge that your jealous hunger will cause you pain. It brings me amusement to cause pain. Let's get this shit started then, shall we? One of the first things I cooked up that I'm really proud of was a braided spaghetti bread. When thinking about what I could make for my food porn blog, I remembered that, but I didn't want to do something that I'd already done in exactly the same way. I decided to modify it to create something different instead. Braided pizza bread. So first of all, you gotta get ingrediants. Where do you buy those? ASDA [bleep]es. [hide=Ingrediants][/hide] Strong white bread flour and yeast [bleep]. The yeast was the fresh shit though, wasn't expecting it, so you gotta add 15g of that shit to 150ml warm water, wait for around 10 minutes for it to get all foamy for your ribbed pleasu... wait, what? ....Anyway, add that shit to your 500g of freshly sieved strong white bread flour (freshly fried fish fillets anyone?), and mix it up. Do it by hand. Filthy, dirty hands rubbing that hard dough into submission. Mhm yeah girl. Food porn. You'll need to add more warm water than the original 150g, but I can't give you instructions for that. You gotta work that shit by error, so when your dough is getting slightly sticky (OH BABY), and all the dough in the bottom of the bowl stays in one ball without falling apart, throw it on the work surface and knead that [bleep]. Pretend it's De Elite One's head. Pound that [bleep] into submission. He loves a good pounding. After you knead the dough for around 5-10 minutes, it should come out something as such: [hide=As such][/hide] From there, you throw it in a bowl (NOW HERE'S SOME COOKING LIFE HACKS FOR YOU! I didn't lightly grease the bowl this time like I usually do, and when I had to get the dough out of the bowl, it stuck badly. It took me five minutes and my nails to get all the sticky bits of dough out of the bowl, while a minute of lightly greasing the bowl would have been a quick and easy job (like The Warrior's mother). Throw some cling film over the bowl for as air-tight a seal as possible, and keep the bowl in a warm place. I threw my bowl into the cupboard where our boiler is. This get's fairly warm when the heating is on, so it worked a treat. After two hours, go back to your bowl and you'll find this: [hide=This] [/hide] YOUR DOUGH HAS BEEN DOUBLED, AND NO AMOUNT OF TRIMMING WILL REMOVE THE SCAM STUFF! From here, you wanna knead that sucker a little bit more, because you want it in workable condition for rolling after you get it out of the bowl. Don't knead it for too long though, I'd recommend only for a minute because you don't want to over-knead that [bleep]. You want just the right amount of air in your dough, so it looks kinda like this: [hide=Air-Dough rune] [/hide] I sliced off this amount because Sally does not like ingredients which I put into the mega-bread, and wanted a plain cheese pizza bread instead. This is the smaller of the two breads you'll see, so keep that shit in mind. OUR FOCUS IS THE BIG BREAD. BIG BREADTHA! Once you got your nice ball of bread, you wanna that shit out into a decent rectangle. "Why a rectangle Jason?! I WANT PENTAGON BREAD! AMERICA PRIDE! 'MERICA!!!!" Because I said so you dumb yank slut. Having a rectangle lets you put the slices in the bread for the braiding much easier. Once your bread is as thin as you want it, you wanna put slices in your bread. About an inch thickness between slices is good, but more or less than that doesn't hurt. You also want your slices to be just the right length to fold over the bread you're putting your ingredients in. You can see what I mean from the following picture, which already has the pizza sauce added! [hide=KNIVES TO MAKE EVIL MUMM RA PROUD!!!] [/hide] From there, you assemble that slut. Put her together however you want her. I added mozzarella cheese, ham, chicken, pepperoni, mushrooms and red onion, but anything works really. Put what you'd put on a pizza, but try to keep it in the middle, and try not to overfill that sucker. [hide=Enough meat to sate Darkwitchery (if ya know what I mean *wink*)] [/hide] Once you've assembled your fillings, you wanna top that [bleep]. And no, I don't mean shoot it, I mean braid it! All you pretty girls out there, you know what I mean. Braid it like you would hair. Alternate the strips all the way until you're done. [hide=You're done] [/hide] From there, I added egg wash to the top to make it nice and golden brown upon cooking, showered it in garlic granules and sprinkled it with parsley. [hide=Bake me like one of your French girls] [/hide] From there, you whack them in the oven AT A DECENT HEAT for 45 minutes or so (UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN AS PEOPLE SAY, BUT I THINK IT'S NOT GOLD, I THINK IT'S BLACK AND BLUE! #teamblackandblue) Once you feel your shit is cooked, you bring it out to the glory of trumpets, and a fanfare to make the Gods proud. [hide=So golden brown, it's almost racist] [/hide] [hide=Sally's cheesey bread] [/hide] [hide=Big Breadtha] [/hide] [hide=Enough Flash! to sing a Queen song] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfmrHTdXgK4 [/hide] Ladies and gentlemen, I hope you're happy. I know I am, because I'm currently eating food porn. [hide=Pure, unadulterated porn.] [/hide] More to follow...

    The oldest tree in RuneScape, an appropriately-named Elder Tree near the resting place of Guthix, is turning 0.009 years old this week. No celebration is planned. The Keldagrim Black Guard still refuses to release information on the four prisoners recently arrested on suspicion of spying and treason, spurring more protests from Dwarf Rights activists. Reports conflict as to whether the prisoners were exiled, executed, released, or kept in custody. None of the four has received a trial. The ancient and powerful demon warlord of Zamorak, K'ril Tutsaroth, stars in a new reality show this fall titled "The K'ril World". Entrants must prove their worth to the mighty champion of chaos. The winner earns a date with K'ril himself. Commented Tutsaroth: "I will flay the flesh from your bones. Your blood will paint the floor. Your soul will be a tribute to the Lord of Chaos. Thank you for the lovely flowers. Hail Zamorak!"

    So Jason made me cook. So I made cookies. And now I get to tell you about them. The best thing is, they don't explode! So some of you must know by now that Jason is a noob. He likes to give you all abuse as he cooks and make references to hyters and junk. I'm not going to do that as much as him. Instead I shall self bash because I cant use the oven and he had to preheat it for me. I suck. Anyway, today we are making cookies. They do not explode, nor do anything special....but you may be visited by the cookie monster. He will eat your cookies and your soul. OH YEAH, you need a song before we begin. Instead of Queen, I give you this: [spoiler=Well it couldn't be anything else] As with the normal episode, shameless plug to ASDA aka Walmart for our ingredients today: [spoiler=Note: This is not HowToBasic. No Eggs were abused in the making of this episode] Please note, one of those eggs will be fully used and the other we will just be using the yolk. I would explain how you make those separate but again, Jason did that part. I tend to leave a mess of eggshell in my wake. Also, you will need more chocolate chips than what is pictured, I don goof'd and forgot to get the correct amount, which is 335 g (each bag here is 100 g). Also make sure you have UNSALTED butter. Else your cookies won't be nom. BEFORE YOU START MIXING INGREDIENTS: Preheat that oven of yours to 165 C. You'll want it nice and hot for the cookies to cook in. Right! So first off you are going to need the plain flour, Baking Soda and a pinch of salt. Measure out 250 g of shifted flour (you don't want lumps in the cookies that aren't chocolate) and 2 g of Baking soda in the same bowl and add in the pinch of salt. Put that to the side for later, you don't need it yet! [spoiler=I'mm dreaming, of some niceeee cookies...] Next, you'll want 220 g of the dark brown sugar. DO NOT SHIFT IT. Its soft, and won't go through a sieve. Jason tried to tell me I needed too and he was WRONG, YOU [bleep] JASON. Add to that 100 g of Caster or white sugar. I used caster but apparently it doesn't matter. Measure out 170 g of the Unsalted butter. Don't add it to anything yet, though! You need to melt that stuff to a yellow puddle that you'd be happy to see. You can either melt it in the microwave (BE CAREFUL IF YOU DO THAT) or melt it over boiling water or something like that. This was another thing that the noob did, because APPARENTLY I'd burn myself (he's right). [spoiler=Buttery goodness] Once you've melted that butter up, add it to the sugars and beat it together. After that, you'll be adding in that one whole egg, and the egg yolk. At the same time, add in 15ml of Vanilla extract. [spoiler=Only one of those hands is mine...] Then you get to beat this dough up until its light and floofy, and looks something like this: [spoiler=Not as cute as a kitty, but just as light!] Then you are finally going to add in the shifted ingredients you sorted earlier (you DID do that already, right?) into this sugary, vanilla mess and mix it all together. You can add bits at a time, because mixing this lot together is hard work...which is why I made Jason do it. AHAHAHAHAHAA Now comes the fun part. Add in your mix (or one flavour, I won't judge!) of 335 g worth of chocolate chunks in and mix that all together. Again, its pretty tough to mix, so you can always make someone else do that hard bit for you. Gf Jason's arms. [spoiler=Don't eat all the chunks beforehand, as tempting as it is!] Here's the funnest part - you get to decide how big or small the cookies are. According to the recipe I used, it can make 1-15 cookies. So I made 5...4 normal-ish cookies and a PIZZA COOKIE! [spoiler=Yummmmmmmmmm] You'll want to keep your eye on the cookies so they don't burn, but the can take between 12-15 minutes if they are normal sized, or longer if you make the PIZZA COOKIE. So just check it until you are happy and its not burnt to all hell. And here are the results of the cookies! [spoiler=Admit it, you want these] [spoiler=PIZZA COOKIE] [spoiler=The other cookies] I recommend that you do leave these to cool before eating. Else you will be burnt, and that won't be fun! I'll be having mine with a lovely bowl of Vanilla ice cream, so be very jelly people. I also recommend that you use a bigger baking tray than I did/make smaller cookies...because otherwise you end up with a massive weird cookie cow pat instead of neat little separate cookies. I hope that you also enjoy the fruits of non-exploding cooking, and rest assured your usual bashing by Jason will resume whenever he gets off his butt and makes food.

    So my last entry was over a year ago, with life taking a dramatic turn, leading me to work in the gaming industry. It has been a year full of blessings, and I have met so many awesome people along the way. Of course, after joining the industry, I was finding myself semi-glued to my phone with e-mails and general social media catch up, not to mention news. At this point, most people in our family have smartphones, except my dad. Now that he's finally gotten around to handling e-mails, he figured he could get one too. This, naturally, doesn't happen without some hilarity. So with this comeback blog entry comes "Oh Parents" Part XI! ^_^ Whole conversation is in Cantonese, translated into English. My parents were having this conversation while debating on whether or not to let Dad get a smartphone (Mom has one and is a total pro at it with little teaching from us kids). Mom: You know if you pick out a phone yourself, something will go wrong and you start yelling at the phone, the kids are going to say it's your fault and that you were the one that picked out the phone yourself. Whereas if you let the kids pick the phone for you, if something goes wrong they'll fix it for you with no fuss. Dad: What do you mean blame? If it breaks, I can get them to fix it no problem. Mom: But that's exactly what I mean! If you pick it yourself, and the phone goes bad, they'll say it's your fault for picking out a bad phone! But if they pick it for you they will try to fix it with no problem. Dad: It's not my fault if the phone goes stupid! Mom: That's the point. The kids want to make sure you get a phone that won't "go stupid." But if you do pick a bad phone, it's all your fault. Dad: I don't get it. :? We're holding off getting a smartphone for him.

    A group of environmental activists has organized a picket to protest druidic activities in Lumbridge Swamp that they claim threatens local wildlife. "What many people don't realize is that wetlands are an important part of the ecosystem," said a spokesman. "This incursion disrupts the hunting grounds of the R.O.U.S. population and jeopardizes the habitat of several rare endangered species of eldritch horrors from the demon realms." An interfaith luchador tournament turned to chaos when Gludd, the representative of Bandos and the ogres, began smashing the venue's walls and attempted to eat the rubble. Commented Gludd: "Door was delicious, made good lunch. Me like lunch a door." Master Smith Ivar has announced that he will no longer smith weapons from starmetal. The mysterious glowing rocks have been causing all his workers to gain superpowers. "I know crime rates are down now, but the tights are too much," said Ivar, adding "Flame on!" before transforming himself into a fire elemental and flying away. Twenty more victims were found dead in Edgeville--the latest in a series of brutal killings. The guards have no new leads as to the whereabouts of the mass murderer, who has racked up a body count of nearly two hundred; most victims were Level 2 ordinary male citizens, although several guards have also been slain. Witnesses say the killer wore a suit of armor and a large sword, and extracted the bones of the men he killed. "We're clearly dealing with an unstable psychopath," said the Head Guard. "If you see someone killing people and burying their remains, please report him immediately so he can be brought to justice!"

    I noticed something this morning: I joined Tip.It four years ago yesterday. Four. Years. :shock: I can't believe it's really been that long. I still remember joining just so I could comment on Lady Shahdie's blog before she got 99 Mining, and I remember starting my own blog (which hits the four year mark on Friday) the day after her party. So many memories. Memories of how much fun it was, and still is, commenting on other people's blogs and responding to their posts. Of the first time I wandered into the OT section. Of wandering away for weeks, and even months, at a time and realizing how much I missed every time I came back. Of applying for the EP and how happy I was when I was accepted. Of finally getting 99 Mining and partying with everyone. Of being invited to be a mod, how helpful everyone was while I was still getting the hang of it and how much fun it's been since. Not everything has been good of course. Many friends have come and gone along the way. Some come back every so often only to disappear again (I'm looking at you Zokot ;)), and some have recently returned, full of fresh hope, hopefully to stay for a long time yet to come (what up Nerdboy! :grin:). Perhaps the saddest day for me was when Lady Shahdie retired and left us for good. We may not have been the best of friends, but she was the reason I joined TIF in the first place and was always special to me. So here's to the past four years and how awesome they have been! Innkeeper! A pint of the dark stuff please. Cheers!

    It's not 100% perfect, but it's come out a damn sight better than my previous effort. I've figured out some mistakes I made during the making of this one, and I'll go through those as I go through the recipe with you bunch of nubs :P So it's been a long time since I've posted a food porn for you sluts, and I have no excuses, but one explanation. I'm too lazy to record what I'm cooking half the time, or I don't deem it "worthy" of being food porn. I won't lie and say this is the return of my food porn blogs, but if inspiration strikes me, I shall attempt to make you [bleep] jealous of my amazing cooking skills (or at least my attempts). Without further ado or explanation, I present The Manwichâ„¢. First off, the usual ingredients shot. [hide=The main batch] [/hide] [hide=Not pictured above] [/hide] Roasted a small joint of gammon for Sunday dinner, and this was left over so I used a few slices. [hide=I LOVE THIS STUFF!] [/hide] Garlic is awesome. You don't like it, you can [bleep] off cos it's #1 ya cheeky [bleep]. Now let's get cooking you [bleep]. Peel and slice up some of that Irish fruit right there, and throw those potato slices into a bowl as such: [hide=Like this m8] [/hide] I threw a small amount of oil into the bowl with the potato slices (to make them crispy when fried, as well as to help the seasonings), and then threw in probably 2 pinches or so of salt, pepper and oregano. Coat the potato slices in everything so it's evenly coated. A chunk of garlic butter was thrown in the frying pan to sizzle down. You can do this step before slicing the potatoes if you want, but keep an eye on the pan if you do so. [hide=Look at that slut starting to slowly melt...] [/hide] Once your pan is nice and hot (but before the butter, or whatever you decided to use such as oil), chuck your potato slices in. I did 6 of them (5 to use in the sandwich and 1 to taste test to make sure they were suitable). [hide=See they're not too heavily coated, but just enough for a kick of flavor] [/hide] Once they're nicely done on the one side, flip them over and cook them some more. MAKE THEM LOOK TASTY! [hide=What's taters precious?] [/hide] Once they're nice and done, throw them to the side and work on some more of that beautiful cooking. On par with my love for garlic is my love for mushrooms. I know they're not amazingly popular, and truth be told, I used to hate them when I was younger, but I started craving them one day and can't get enough since. I chopped all these mushrooms into thirds along the stem, and then into halves from there. [hide=Not the magic kind] [/hide] Next, chop up that whole onion. Yeah, onion's [bleep]ing awesome too. I like nice big chunks of it, so don't worry if it's roughly cut. I threw them into a bowl with the mushrooms, and then gave it a decent spray of garlic cooking oil rather than spraying the frying pan itself. [hide=This looks like heaven to me] [/hide] [hide=Not mushroom left in this pan ;)] [/hide] Throw them in the frying pan on about a medium heat and stir them fairly consistently. You can leave them for up to a few minutes at a time, but with very little oil/fat in the frying pan, I didn't want them to stick so I stirred about every minute or so. I didn't cook them until crispy or very well done either, I like the mushrooms and onions to still have a bit of oomph to them when you bite into them personally. [hide=EVEN MORE HEAVEN!] [/hide] Next up is the ambrosia. The god food. Bacon. What kind you use is up to you, but I dislike smoked bacon, and I had this handy instead of the stuff that's designed to go crispy. It's bacon, it damn well works fine either way. I gave the frying pan a spray of garlic oil, as well as each bacon slice a spray too (I love garlic, what can I say?) [hide=Awwwww yissss.....] [/hide] [hide=Mother [bleep]in'...] [/hide] [hide=BACON!] [/hide] And then there's the big boy himself. The steak. Now there's a lot of "yes" and "no" to do with steaks, but at the end of the day, everyone has their own preferences, and I've found a way to cook them that works for me and I'm happy with the texture and flavor. First off, let the steak warm to room temperature before you cook it. Second, use a very hot pan to cook it with as little fat as you can get away with. Third, only season it when you're ready to throw it in the pan. Fourth (and the first of the mistakes for me), I would trim the fat away from the side of the steak. While eating the sandwich while typing this, one of my only complaints is that the fat on the side of the steak is tough to chew through, and while not unpleasant to munch on, eventually took away some of the enjoyment of the steak itself. Once the pan was extremely hot (almost to the point of setting off the fire alarm), I coated one side of the steak in a small mix of salt, pepper and garlic granules (haters gonna hate, I've found fresh garlic always burns in the frying pan for me), and immediately threw the steak seasoned side down into the frying pan. [hide=The steaks have never been higher] [/hide] After about two minutes, I picked the steak carefully up, coated the uncooked side quickly and placed it back down to cook for another 2 minutes. After this 2 minutes, I throw a small knob of butter into the frying pan (which was still so hot that the butter pretty much instantly melted), and then used that to baste the steak for another 2 minutes or so. [hide=Butter me up babe] [/hide] After those two minutes of basting are over, remove the steak from the frying pan, place it in some foil, wrap it and LEAVE IT ALONE! You do not touch that steak for at least 10 minutes now. It needs some time to absorb some lovely steak awesomeness, and you'll [bleep] it up if you touch it. [hide=OFF LIMITS ONCE IT'S WRAPPED] [/hide] After 10 minutes of sitting and absorbing awesomeness, your steak is ready for you to do with as you wish. I cut mine in half to showcase it, but it went into quarters for the sandwich. [hide=Look at that bad boy] [/hide] That brings me round to another thing I would change about this meal. As you'll see to come, the steak came out in big chunks, and while it looks awesome, it means that some slices could come without any steak at all. Next time, I'll either shave the steak into smaller pieces to spread it around, make sure there's enough steak to layer the entire sandwich or find another way to make the steak more evenly distributed. Now, get your big ass loaf of bread (circular loaf is better, trust me), and slice off the top. NOW SCOOP OUT THE INNARDS WITH YOUR FINGERS AND DESTROY IT!!! Final mistake for me. Leave a bit of bread at the bottom rather than scraping it almost too thin, because the edges of the bottom of the bread might go a bit soggy. They taste amazing, but presentation-wise, doesn't look so nice. Leave a small bit of padding to soak up any juices ;) [hide=BREAD!] [/hide] Now. LET'S LAYER THIS MOTHER [bleep]ER UP!!! [hide=1. CHEDDAR!] [/hide] [hide=2. STEAK!!!] [/hide] As you can see, gaps :( Anyway... [hide=3. [bleep]ING LOVELY MUSHROOMS AND ONIONS!!!] [/hide] [hide=4. MOTHER [bleep]IN' BACON!] [/hide] [hide=5. EDAM CHEESE IS [bleep]ING AMAZING, 10/10 WOULD EAT AGAIN] [/hide] [hide=6. Sorry for potato quality. Kappa 123] [/hide] The final layer was some gammon, but I forgot to take a picture of that until I'd already wrapped it up. Damn it. Now, you wanna wrap this [bleep]er pretty securely in some foil as such. [hide=SHINY] [/hide] What I did here was throw a baking tray on top of that [bleep]er, and FLATTENED IT FOR ABOUT 20 HOURS! GET FLAT YOU [bleep], I WANT TO EAT YOU IN ONE BITE YUM. [hide=Let's flatten that [bleep]] [/hide] After 20 hours had passed, I removed the books, threw the sandwich (still in foil) on the baking tray into an oven for about 30 minutes to heat it up nicely and get that cheese all melty. Mhm... After 30 minutes, she came out the oven. She was ready. [hide=Bread Pinata] [/hide] And now, for the final glamour shots.. [hide=A piece not showing any steak] [/hide] [hide=A PIECE SHOWING A BIG ASS HUNK OF STEAK YEEEEAAAAA] [/hide] And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my dinner for tonight, and my breakfast/lunch for tomorrow. Have a good night, because I certainly shall. :twisted:

    I WILL TEAR OUT YOUR THROAT AND USE YOUR BLOOD FOR SYRUP ON MY TOAST!!! It's always entertaining to see how much comic sans looks like a kitten trying to roar. Not threatening in any way, shape or form. Yes, completely stolen from something else, but what are you, a cop? [bleep] you. PIE So yeah, I made pies this time. Oddish kind of inspired me to do the next installment of food porn. I've done some cooking lately, but nothing too amazing, and nothing I considered posting, ya know? I will say in advance that I'm not 100% happy with some of the things in this food porn episode. Some things got away from me, and as such, I'd probably give myself a 7/10 at most, based mostly on the fact that the taste is spot on point. Another thing that irritates me is that my phone camera likes to change the brightness on photos. It's a bit of a [bleep] for that, and I dislike the way some photos have come out, but shit happens I guess. Let's begin shall we? Obligatory Queen! song for you, this is becoming a thing. [bleep] you, I can do what I want, it's MY BLOG! [hide=A Queen! song that accurate represents Jason as a person] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4Mc-NYPHaQ [/hide] The usual start to this is the blatant advertisement for ASDA (that's Walmart in the UK for those of you that live in the third world country we know as America) [hide=That's ASDA price m8] [/hide] The Willow you see there is a brand of butter. The icky green things are leeks, and the thing you see on the pack of mushrooms is two cloves of fresh garlic, and part of an onion I had leftover from sandwiches. Not pictured is chicken stock, sausages and baked beans. So the plan of attack was to make two seperate pies (one for myself, and one for Sally). The first was a chicken, mushroom, leek and onion pie in a creamy white sauce (hehehehehehehehehehehe), while the other was a sausage and baked bean pie, cooked in the tomato sauce of the beans. So first things first, we dice up some chicken. I prefer decent sized chunks of chicken rather than small pieces, as they give you something to bite into rather than being more flavour than anything. [hide=GIVE ME BIG MEATY CHUNKS, I LOVE ME SOME MEAT!] [/hide] After that, you grab those icky things that are green, and you prepare them. I top and tail them (take off the top and bottom parts), and then remove the first layer of skin so that they're nice and fresh. Wash those [bleep]es, you don't want any dirt flavoring your meal. [hide=I guess this green is all white with me. GEDDIT?!] [/hide] You wanna slice those into thinish disks. They'll come apart during cooking, but you don't want the pieces too big. I'd say the width of a finger is probably a good size. I used 2/3 of what is shown here, as I didn't want too much to overpower the chicken. Worked out to just the right amount for me. Next, ya prepare your garlic. Sorry vampires, I love me some garlic, so if you're going to come after me, you're in for a bad time. Chop the very ends off, shell the first layer of skin so you just got the white stuff left (RACIST!), and crush it with the flat of a knife. FINELY CHOP THAT [bleep]! [hide=Finely chopped garlic!] [/hide] Dude, next I got me some magic mushrooms, like dude. They take you to higher dimensions of reality dude, like totally. Clean them, remove the stalk (you can use the stalk, but I chose not to this time), chop in half, and bam, you're done. [hide=Not the drug kind, promise! ;)] [/hide] Now throw all that shit you just chopped up into a saucepan in which you've preheated some oil in. I used a dash of oil. If you've ever cooked, you know what I'm talking about. [bleep] MEASUREMENTS, I'M A MAN AND I DO WHAT I WANT! [hide=Cook my pretties, cook for me] [/hide] You wanna let that cook up for about five to ten minutes, stirring now and then until your chicken is no longer pink in any way. Seriously. Pink chicken is bad. You want it white or slightly browned, or you're in for one hell of a stomach ache. Next up is some chicken stock, and here's the first part of my irritation. The chicken stock I used was not the kind I've used before, but I figured it'd do the trick. It didn't quite as well as I wanted it to. It didn't thicken, so the end sauce was not as thick as I wanted. It tasted good, but it was runny as all [bleep]. Good for mopping up with a piece of bread, but not good for a 10/10 looking pie. [hide=Bring that shit + chicken stock to a boil!] [/hide] Once it's boiled for about five minutes, let it simmer for a bit. Yes, simmer in the juices you slut. Get tender for me. Once it's simmered for a few minutes, add your cream. Another irritating point for me is that I picked up the wrong cream by accident. I got double cream rather than single cream. I don't know the difference it would have made, but I made my last pie with single cream, and I preferred that sauce, so the things I got wrong this time compared to last time was annoying. [hide=Jason's patented creamy white sauce - PLS NO REMOVE THIS LIONESS] [/hide] [bleep], your filling is done. I made this the night before due to time constraints, and it kept well. NOW IT'S TIME FOR PASTRY! Pastry 101 [bleep]. I was making shortcrust, which is very simple. Plain flour, 1/4 flour weight in lard (PIG FAT, YUMMY), and 1/4 flour weight in butter. Sieve that flour for the finest in flour, and add some salt/pepper to taste. [hide=The flour of my eye <3] [/hide] Weigh out your AWESOME PIG FAT and butter (as I used 700g of flour, I used 175g each of lard and butter) [hide=GLORIOUS PIG FAT] [/hide] Now you know that pig fat? It smells bad, and it feels bad if you touch it. You know what you're gonna do now? You're gonna touch it. You're going to stick your hand into flour and pig fat, and stir that shit up with your fingers. This is the part of cooking I really enjoy. I hate just throwing some frozen shit into a fryer and waiting for it to cook, I love the preparation of fresh ingredients, it's my favourite part. Now stir that shit up you [bleep]. [hide=Stirring as ordered ma'am!] [/hide] Who the [bleep] are you calling ma'am?! You stir that shit up more, until it looks like breadcrumbs damn it! That's the state we want it in, looking like fine breadcrumbs. [hide=Is this breadcrumby enough Mistress?] [/hide] ... I guess it'll do. Make a well in the middle of that with your fingers, and pour in a bit of warm water. Not a lot, you just want to pour in some water to bind the mixture together into a ball which will hold its shape on its own. I can't give you an exact amount here, so pour a little bit in at a time, and work it together. Better to be overcautious than sorry. [hide=This is what you want to end up with] [/hide] [hide=HALF THAT SUCKER IF YOU'RE MAKING TWO PIES, BECAUSE THIS IS ENOUGH PASTRY FOR TWO!] [/hide] The pie on the left has pastry all around, it's a full pie. The pie on the right only has pastry on the top, as the sauce for the chicken pie would [bleep] with the pastry as soon as I poured it on. Too wet, not thick enough, recipe for disaster if I do it. Not pictured is the cooking of the left pie's filling. I sliced some sausages into thin disks (between 5 and 8 disks per sausage), fried them up, and mixed them with a cold tin of baked beans (they'll heat up in the oven). Throw some pastry over the filling (make the pastry as thick as you want it, but try not to have it too thick, it'll overpower the filling if you do), and slash it a few times with a knife. You can poke it with a fork too, but I prefer slashes for the look. This is to allow the heat and shit from the cooking filling an escape route, or your pie will explode. No, it honestly will. Have fun cleaning the oven out if you don't leave an escape route. Egg wash that [bleep] up, to give it a lovely golden brown look once it leaves the oven. .......... I forgot the egg wash for my pies. My only excuse is that I twinged my knee while cooking, and was in a fair amount of pain. I forgot to egg wash, and so my pastry comes out fairly pale. The taste is still good, but the looks aren't as good as they could have been. Sucks to be me, eh? Now throw that shit into an oven, and take it out when you think it's done. It's done if it looks like this if you forget the egg wash, or when it's a lovely golden brown if you remember it. I won't give you an exact number, because ovens are pieces of shit for not following cooking times, and mine took well over an hour. [hide=More baked than a stoner] [/hide] And there you have it. They can be a bit of a [bleep] to cut, but they taste good. The pastry was a bit flakier than I expected, but it still tasted fine to me. Sally certainly enjoyed the filling on her pie, and mine was lovely too. [hide=Side by side] [/hide] [hide=Sausage and baked bean pie] [/hide] [hide=Chicken, leek, mushroom and onion pie in JASON'S HOMEMADE CREAMY WHITE SAUCE! Yes mods, I'm pushing my luck!] [/hide] So there you have it ladies. 2 and a half months after I posted my first food porn, you get another. I'll try to not take as long with the third one, but no promises, I'm Jason, and even though you can't all have as much free time as me, I'm lazy as [bleep]. Take it easy [bleep]ers, time to enjoy my pie.

    I had a blog here once, apparently. I never posted on it regularly, looking back, but I'm going to try to rectify that. Something that's changed quite a bit from the way I used to play, and something that doesn't seem that popular anymore, is that I don't take very many screenshots of my accomplishments in the game. When I got 99 woodcutting, I didn't even get a screenshot of it, which might not be the most popular thing here, but I don't really feel like changing that. It takes a bit of the fun out of things, I find. So, I'm going to try and be back here to post more often. I might say things about the things I accomplish - drops, skills, etc. etc. - but don't expect an abundance of screenshots - my adventurer's log might be the best that I do in that regard. What I really want to do with this is thinking about the game. I just realized that I've been playing this game more than a decade (I don't know the exact date, is there somewhere I can find that?), and I've seen a ton of things happen in there. I guess that what I really want to do is get into what I think about the game, why I'm still playing, and some sort of analysis of various things as they come to mind. I just want to think a lot about a game that means a lot to me and really dig as deep into it as I possibly can. I also think there is enough of people just saying "Hey, look at the drop I got!" or "Look at my skills!" and I want to do something different and add something new to the discussion. But first, let's see if I get anything going in the first place. If I make it past this post, there might be a miracle.

    After much experimenting! By which I mean I kind of played with the Universal Randomizer and kind of got rid of trade evolutions. So, if I so choose, I can envolve things. I'm genuinely surprised that it worked, to be honest, considering that using metronome killed my save. Clearly, that's a problem for another day; one that I couldn't possibly regret. And it's definitely not cheating! Anyway, here it is, fresh from the dry cleaner: [spoiler=HELL-COW] I'm going to need to grind. Luckily, there's a route filled with people young and old alike that I can assault for money and experience! Eh, I'll do that later. There's an underground tunnel with just as much experience, and something far more valuable That item is... The... Coin case? How does an item that stores casino chips end up being "DEFENCE"? How?! I'm having a genuine crisis here, guys! The man who ran at me screaming didn't help. Made short work of him, as expected and... HE KNOWS [bleep] it, I'm done here! Time to enslave ELFs until it makes sense! But of course, I have no balls. Hugeballs. You know what I mean. Please tell me you know what I mean. The market stocks them. It also stocks nothing. So I enslaved more ELFs, including on that's literally harmless. And one that I thought was harmless, and is actually horrifyingly sadistic. This route also houses this guy, from the preview: After agreeing with his vile and lewd rant, he became much more lucid. As in, actual English. His wife was much more polite from the start. Apparently he's the train merchant. Normally I would protest, but that's just so cool. I mean, trains, right? I like trains. Anyway, back to grinding. And now I'm starting to suspect that the old man does not, in fact, sell trains. I feel cheated. She does have a starter, though, and a grass one at that. I like her already. She was the last COACH on that route, so I went north to grind more. And was promptly assaulted in a way that's hilariously inappropriate. He also wouldn't admit defeat. And in case you were wondering... The series mascot: PIKAQ Anyway, here's the gym that destroyed a million childhoods. Featuring the most helpful guide in the history of everything.

Not the kind of person that would attack people with a cow until they started to beg for mercy at all! I bet I won't even have to fight her! We'll have a tea party and bond over our mutual love of- Shit. THAT'S THE LAST TIME ONE OF THESE COACHES TRICKS ME! NO MORE! I'VE HAD IT WITH THIS GAME AND THIS CHAMPIONSHIP AND ESPECIALLY THIS FAIRY! That... That didn't amuse her. So she stopped being polite and attacked me with her pink murderdemon. I've got this. And on winning... ...I think I broke her. Excessively too what? Wait, I'm not crying. Who is she even talking to? Oh. So she just gives me the budge, just like that? Excuse me while I go cry. Oh, that's right. I'm not done here. Remember the TRAIN MERCHANT? Guys. I did it. I finally did it. After seven parts. I bred the grass elf. News at 11. [spoiler=NEXT TIME...

    Greetings! These past 2 days have been really slow, yesterday I got level 20 Mining & 30 Smithing after I finished getting 30 Woodcutting and 30 Firemaking the night before. Today I am at 25 Mining, since yesterday I got distracted and went to a baseball game. I was hoping to have mining done yesterday so that I could get 30 Fishing and Cooking today, but I guess I'll have to pick up the pace and work harder. So far I've made about 75k, but I bought and Rune Pickaxe and Hatchet to put on my toolbelt. Those ashes definitely come in handy for quick cash as a newbie! I'll start posting screenshots of level ups once they get to like 50+ because I don't think 30-49 is that great of an achievement. See you later Alligators!

    After reading through my old blog entries, I noticed that some of the relationships were extremely out of date, and thus, we need new and updated gossip! Let us begin, shall we? TheKoolKandy and Muffin Maddy - No, he screams on Skype as I type this information. Little does he know that Maddy already has a seduction plan, which she is currently working on with Patrick. She's about half way done corrupting his innocence, and the finale involves a trip to the Cinema to watch Breaking Dawn Part 2. I wish them the best of luck, and have only one thing to ask of their union. Can you see me now? Wolf Am I (Pluggy) and Crazy Eric - Eric is weird, but hell, Clare is used to this, she's from Essex after all! It works out fine because Eric already has a pajazzle, and Clare is used to weird and rude guys because of where she grew up! I wish them the best of luck, and my donation to their relationship together is a new born Cow. May you two have much moo in your life together! Cafe Diem and Polarbearblu - Skype calls together have worked a bond of love between these two strange, but lovable characters. Polar's mad can be calmed down by the soothing voice of Cafe, and it'll be nice for him to have a woman, he has spent too long dating his hands (and cheating on both of them with Dolly, who I won't go into detail over). Tanuso and Quest Cape K - Even in the days when I still thought Tansy was a girl, I knew that these two were meant for each other. Even finding out that Tansy is actually a guy doesn't break this relationship, because Quest Cape K is about as close to being a girl as anyone can while still having male... well, let's not go into details, but you know what I mean. These two have loved each other since first troll, and I wish them both the best of luck in their future. Darkwitchery and De Elite One - Not much has changed here, these two still love each other as much as Victoria can love anything that isn't a penguin or chocolate (which isn't a hell of a lot, but considering Deo's face, he should be happy with what he gets!). Their union will finally be complete once Victoria has achieved her life long goal of 99 Fletching, and they will live happily ever after in a little college in Wales, with plenty of nearby sheep, while Deo slaves at his job working for Cadbury. ;) Sannibannie and Mish - Come on. Anyone that can't tell that these two are made for each other is blind, dumb, or me! Wait.. Never mind. I know that these two will have profitable lives, but short, because while Sanni steals Mish's innocence, Graardor will murder them both brutally, for all the trouble they've given him over the years. Emmace and Sangrina - Still two of the people that I believe are perfect for each other, I love you both, and I wish you the happiest times together, whether that be doing something that you both hate, such as being kind to people, or something that you both love to do, such as corrupting the innocence of billions, while murdering the rest in strange and excruciatingly painful ways! :) Dragoon5464 and Tranquil - After the seduction that Tranquil partook in after visiting Dragoon, these two are set for life, and I wish them the happiest of times together, and much in the way of redberry pie and bananas. A Local Guy and Sorator - After long trips moderating botters and spammers, and a long night with little thanks, they ended up in a bar together. A shot or two later (both being complete light-weights), their relationship started, and they've never been happier. Both already married to the job, but their love can even beat their love of destroying noobs and muting boobs! Dexek and Lanfear/Tay/Twilight_Blade - Tay is one of the most evil people I know, and once she found out how beautiful Derek was, nothing could stop her on the way to seduction and evil deeds. Derek is now under her spell, but I can't imagine that he doesn't really enjoy it, Tay's evil is part of her charm <3: Naive and Iiccee - ... I can't go into detail about this relationship, the forums are PG-13, but let's just say that Naive's neckbeard was enough to persuade Frank to give their relationship a chance! QueenBlueSky and k a t k i s - Another relationship from Hyt that has stood the test of time, they have been happily married for a long time now, and enjoy moonlight strolls along the beach, romantic dinners, and the occasional serial murder sprees that both have hinted they enjoy so well! Drazhar44 and Kimberly - After my messy divorce with Kimberly, she went to a bar to drown her sorrows in alcohol. As everyone knows, where this is a bar, there is a Kieran, and he used the booze to persuade Kimberly to start a relationship with him. I'm sure this will only last as long as Kieran can keep Kimberly drunk, but being Irish, I'm sure he has the experience needed to do such a thing! Octarine and Ezkaton - While neither are Hyters, both are well known on Tip.It, and thus, their relationship must be spread throughout the gossip of TIF! I wish them both the best of luck in "The Babecave", a place that can not be explained in Tip.It's PG-13 environment. Good luck guys! Lass Sally and Tip It (0 0 Spec Aww) - I know I'm not surprised, with a voice and accent as beautiful as Ian has, and with that incredible body, even the crazy cat lady known to her victims only as Salleh could not escape seduction! I hope Ian is prepared, I've heard Sally has already purchased him a litter-box and she intends to make him use it! ForsakenMage and Serpent Eye - Long story short, after a night of comparing incidents of their times owning Hyt, their mutual hatred for chatters in general formed the basis of a relationship of blood, evil and maybe the odd devoured chatter. I know I'm not the only one that is glad that their affections have turned to each other, for both have storied histories of eating their partners after they have grown bored! Ambler3 and 999134thpure - Staking. Need I say more? Solemnis and Nox - After a romantic plane ride together, these two hot-headed, red-blooded males couldn't resist each other's charm, and they have quickly built a relationship of such trollingness, that even Dragonkng198, the Master of Trolls can not touch them. Fair played gentlemen, I hope you have a wonderful life together! Dragonkng198 and All Women That Can't Resist His Charm - With a face like this, even the taken ladies can't resist me. That is all. I bid you all a good day, and I hope you remember me fondly, for I shall probably be torn limb from limb after the posting of this blog entry, but know that I died as I lived, with a giggle on my lips, and trolling in my heart! <3:

    You know it. I know it. Skittles are disgusting, evil things, and we need to ban them. Work with me. I promise to ban Skittles everywhere. We can do this if we work together. Are you with me? This is what our ancestors would have wanted. Do it now. Only once Skittles are banned will the fools see the folly of their ways. OBLIVION IS AT HAND! :)

    A Cup of You She whistles to you, you run and pick her up. Alone at last, this time no one will interrupt. Pull her close by the arm, or hold her with both hands. Causing no harm, being as gentle as you can. Bring her mouth to yours, a warm kiss on your lips. Just as you remember, as sweet as you could wish. The taste of your memories, feeling at peace. Her faint aroma, your secret stress relief. Life's about the little moments, the time spent with you. So put on the kettle, and make a cup of tea for two. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Here's a quick poem I put together an hour ago for my girlfriend for her birthday. She has a real thing for tea, but I wanted to make it sound like I was talking about her as well. Bought her a Lulu Lemon sweater for her birthday alongside some of her favourite tea. Hopefully she won't beat me.

    Troacctid, a popular blogger on Tip.It who was previously thought to have either been abducted by aliens or eaten by wolves after her unexpected disappearance several years ago, was spotted alive and well this week at a local gaming store. "What? My blog? Oh, right, yeah, that's a thing that I used to do! So you're a fan, huh? HYT!" said Troacctid. "Yeah, I'm pretty much off of that game. But there were some good memories for sure." The former blogger denied having mysteriously vanished. "What are you talking about? I wasn't abducted by aliens. What kind of ridiculous story is that? Who even came up with that? I've just been doing other things, like studying accounting and playing tabletop RPGs," she said. "And no, I didn't change my name and identity to 'hide from the press.' I came out as trans, like, months ago? Don't you follow me on Twitter? And my eyes are up here, by the way." When asked if she would be returning to the blogging scene, Troacctid said, "I don't think so. Like I said, I don't really play that game anymore. Besides, I'm very busy! I'm running like half a dozen tables of D&D a week now. I suppose if there's demand for it, I could write up a quick update, maybe do an AMA in the comments if people want to know what I've been up to, but that's probably it." Troacctid can be reached on Twitter as @troacctid. You can also ask her anything in the comments.

    One of the things I do when I'm reallifing, is crocheting. I like crocheting a lot (amongst other yarnbased crafts), and in between all the exercises and walking I have to do at the moment, I crocheted this tiny mochila bag. I liked the mochila technique and made a design of my own. Bought yarn too already. It will be a black oval bag on which pacman and the four ghosts are chasing each other for ever and ever and ever and ever... I doubted between pacman and space invaders for a moment, but pacman seemed a bit simpler. Maybe in the future I will have become so good at this mochila thing that I can try my hand at an rs related design? Who knows! (okay, maybe I should make myself a tardis rucksack first?). Love, Ingrid.

    Yes, yes, I know the Queen Black Dragon came out a long time ago and that most people find her somewhat easy. But still. Slowly but surely I have been gaining some nice combat levels these past few months, a lot of which came from dungeoneering. I started seriously dungeoneering because of the tasks. I don't remember who helped with the first task I encountered (use some food on a team member), but he/she set me off to do a lot of dungeoneering tasks. Including that one for which you need a fully upgraded ring of kinship, in other words a whopping 313k-plus-something in tokens. Gathering all these tokens took a lot of floors, battling a lot of bosses and gaining a lot of combat expee. Mage, mostly, but sometimes I ranged. Combining that with the slayering I did and do outside of dungeoneering and two or three weeks ago I found myself being the proud owner of a runescape account with 90+ mage and 90 ranged. 90 ranged! That's acension bows, but boy are they expensive. Since I also want to level expensive things like herblore, construction and summoning, getting an ascension bow was a no-no. "So get a royal crossbow", my fellow hyters said. Despite them repeatedly stating that it was really doable, even for me, I stuck to my trusty handcannon a long time. Mainly because getting a royal crossbow scared the hell out of me. A royal crossbow is made by the extreme breath of the Queen Black Dragon. And that's was scared me. The Queen Black Dragon! Beating her was a challenge the size of Mount Everest. "Scary!", I told myself. "I'll die!", I told myself. Still, I went to qbd once or twice, just to see what its like and to test where you gravestone ends up. It's nice to know you're able to get your gear back when you die. That's once of the things that's keeping me from gwd-bossing, even though everyone says I should be totally able to at least Graardor. Anyway, my gravestone turned out to end up right outside the qbd entrance portal. And getting there was so easy with the Port Sarim Lodestone. One very important hurdle was taken. So I started practising battling the Queen Black Dragon. Like once or twice a week. I hate dying, even though I'll respawn. I died a lot, at first mostly to firelines in the first stage. When I started to get the hang of the running-through-firelines-trick, I managed to empty the first qbd-healthbar. Suddenly she started spewing all these grotworms! "Wait!", i thought, "I am supposed to touch one of them artifacts now". There were like seven or eight grotworms before I got to the artifact. Needless to say, I died at the second stage. Getting past the second stage took me a while. Fortunately, I had lots of food because I was levelling fishing and cooking. Reaching that third stage was difficult, I died to firelines, I died to ghouly ghostthingies, I died to grotworms and I died because I remained at that over-the-water-platform too long. I learned that platform hits 1500 lifepoints if you hang around the artifact too long. I got stuck, and decided to quit qbd and go dungeoneeering instead. And that's when I gained those magic and ranged levels. Somewhere in the back of my head I still wanted a royal crossbow, but I was also scared of dying at the qbd. Sometimes I wondered why I was scared; it seemed a bit silly to be scared of her, after all, I would respawn and just get my gear back. I have a twelveminute gravestone, literally an ocean of time to get back to the qbd-portal. In the end, I asked my fellow hyters for tips regarding armour and all. Others could do it too, so I could too, right? The right armour, and especially weapons immediately made a difference (together with my improved magiclevels probably) and after just two tries I managed to get to the fourth stage. Boy, did I feel proud of myself! I got to stage 4, even! Maybe this was doable after all! After some more dying and lots more sharks I decided to switch from regular magic to ancient magicks. I got 92 a couple of days earlier, and 92 mage means blood barrage. They say that's a great spell. So why not try it out? Getting to the ancient piramid is so easy with that lodestone in the desert. Geared up again I went to the qbd-portal. One sip of super-anti-fire and one sip of super magic potion, and I was off! With blood barrage on auto-cast and carefully watching firelines and ghoulies I was at stage 4 before I knew it. Stage 4! The stage with the extreme breath and the brandishing. Carefully I positioned my avatar right in the middle before the QBD, precisely where the guides say you have to be in order to get an unforged royal crossbow brandhished. Fanatically I kept my health at near-maximum, so I could tank the extreme breath attack when it came. There it is! The extreme breath! Almost panically I clicked the brandish royal bow, and ate some sharks right after. Wow, I almost died there. I didn't have the time to check on my royal crossbow, would it be brandished or not? I had to navigate some firelines and defeat some ghostlyghouliethings. Better check later, and deal with surviving first. Wait, do I have to tick another artifact? Why yes! I run to the artifact, touch it, and suddenly an army of grotworms dies. A platform in the middle rises. My chatbox suddenly said the Queen Black Dragon wnet back to her slumber. Did I? Really? Could it be? Hesitating, I checked my inventory, and found a royal crossbow all ready for use. For a couple of seconds I just stared at it. "Royal crossbow" it said. No (unforged) addition anymore. I did it. I really did it. Entering the cellar under the platform, it started slowly to sink in that I did it. I beat the Queen Black Dragon and managed to get that damned royal crossbow. The Queen Black Dragon taught me that nothing apparently is really impossible, though sometimes things may take a hell of a lot of practisice before succeeding. But you'll succeed if you are willing to put in the time. And also I obviously detest taking risks, even small ones, why I do not know yet, but I'll figure out. It would be nice to know, because then I can use that knowlegde to be a better person in real life too. And whenever I will face something difficult, I'll think about my royal crossbow, and the epic fight between my adventurer and the Queen Black Dragon. I did it. I can do it.

    So this week the Mahjarrat memories came out. Since I was divving anyway I figured I might as wel div that engrameter. It took me some time, but I managed to collect the fifteen memories and am now proudly followed by a Tiny Lucien. And I like him! He aks me "Sailing or riding?" and then when I choose either one he goes "SILENCE! I DECIDE". Not realizing I'm not listening to him anyway :) Or he asks me where I hid the stone of Jas. Or he tells me that I should respect "the tiny power of lucien". He's totally cute trying to be badass and all :)

    It's 2014. I wanted to wait a week or two, but Erika had other ideas. So here it is, season 2 of Pokemon Vietnamese Crystal. Wherein Alg explores Kanto, wins eight more BUDGES, and finally, earns the title of "[wagon]". And worst of all, I'm on my own [spoiler=I'M ON A BOAT] I start the season in the same spot as I started the last one. My house. Except that the call knows where I live. Back to work... It's literally 10 feet from my house. He could have come in person. Yaay, presents! Oh. I get the feeling he's just trying to get rid of me. I'm the SUCCESSOR OF ELF, for god's sake, not some errand girl. [bleep] all of this, I'm done. Wait, what? Bribery! [bleep] yeah! As every 10 year old knows, this is useful for catching shinies that know selfdestruct or that run away legendaries. I'm sold, which way is Guandong? Of course, it wasn't long before the plot happened. An uncle lost a granddaughter on a ship. This is the beginning of every SAT question ever. I asked him for more advice: what does this girl look like, where was she last seen- Oh. Helpful. I was distracted by the fact that there were other coaches on board. Free experience is always a good thing. Plus, I get my own room! I... I just don't know anymore ... Moving on! I don't think he's actually a sailor OH GOD THE SHIP IS BEING ATTACKED BY SEA MONSTERS One epic combat montage later, and i saved the little girl. So.. So precocious. And now my reward! And arrived at my destination after a brief sucker punch in the childhoods. Anyway, you know what a new region means, right? MORE BUDGES MERICA Oh. I guess I'll leave then. No point inwait a minute... Oh god. He's a gamer. Oh my. Just for the record: New!Kanto's CURATOR music is probably among the best in the series. Of course, I have two ELFs with Earthquake. Hilarity ensues. Woo! Citrus! ...Eh? Anyway, the next gym was less than five minutes away. So I went in, got through a few battles and... ...Forgot that some items crash the game! Well, let's see if my save is still alright: And it is! But not saving means that I have to repeat the entire part! [bleep]! [spoiler=NEXT TIME... ON POKEMON VIETNAMESE KANTO] I do everything again [spoiler=Behind the Scenes!] I lied.

    Not much to say. This is it. [spoiler=FOUR EMPERORS] This is what my team looks like now. It's not good enough, so I spent about an hour grinding. And more than a few mons needed ENVOLVING This item was incredibly useful, because have you ever tried to train a Dratini in a cave filled with selfdestructing GELU and confuse ray-ing GELU? It's terrible. I saw this screen so many times that it made my eyes bleed. They started mocking me for it! Even the old man got in on it! So I quit. So I made a tactical retreat to resupply And managed to summon an eldritch abomination in the process. After much shipping, I was ready HUDE, whose arms are literal twigs, collected a vast array of swiss army punches. And then I finished grinding. We were ready. December 26th: ELF PRACTISE DAY. Because as an American, I am legally required to not acknowledge Boxing Day. Bold words, from a sound effect. Spoilers he lost But that speech was enough to give me an immense amount of respect for the guy. I mean, seriously, that dwarfs every boss monologue in JRPG history. swoon Anyway, on to the next one. Meanwhile, Koga here seems to be playing Menacing Words Mad Libstm Nice. Neither Erika not I could figure out what was going on here. But I decided that type advantages were overrated and did this. Okay. The next guy is another meditate-in-a-room-fulla-lava [wagon]. Who has apparently strengthened his body to the point where he can ignore convection. This, my friends, is what badassery looks like. This guy's been in the FOUR EMPERORS since the beginning. Of course, HUDE trivialized it. Well... Shit. Sorry guys, run's over, I lost. By which I mean ANOTHER She's a bit nuts, you see... And after that battle, things got... Metaphysical. There we go. FOUR EMPERORS. On to the CHAMPION. My goal since September. Grappling! A wholesome activity for any cape-wearing adult and 11-year old girl to participate in alone! ...I'm going straight to hell for that one. Cue JRPG boss music. His body is ready But of course, I have this, so the worst outcome is mutually assured destruction. I'm willing to count that as a technical win. Eventually, he released every Smogoner's least favorite mon. And then I won. And I will let our friend DU speak the closing words. Except the paparazzi interrupted. And I will let our friend OUJIDUO speak the closing words. [spoiler=Congratulations!] The epilogue! Please ignore the game time, it's less than 1/4 of that [spoiler=The credits!] [spoiler=Behind the Scenes!] So, that's it. Thank you all for putting up with my strange sense of humor and futile attempt to do something here. Vietnamese Crystal's second season will begin in 2014.

    Slowly working my way to 90+ while developing some type of normal schedule I can do day in and day out as I slay. So far I got Sinkholes, Big Chinchompa, and occasional Daily Profit . Then, I got paid. And bought Minecraft. And Runescape hasn't seen me in 3 days. But just what was I doing in Minecraft? Well, I was starting out my fun adventure of building stuff. If I built me a nooby little shack of love. Right next to this beauty (which blew up later) And this big [cabbage] castle... So I moved to a new home in the swamps (outdated look) I spent time building a farm and found a monster spawner near my crib. But got terrible loot. All and all I've been enjoying Minecraft a lot. So Runescape might see less of me. However, I'm still working to 90+ all. Lets see if I can get there AND complete so Minecraft goals.

    As a bit of back story, the Tip.It Crewbie Newbie known as Salleh came to stay with me for a week, and during this time... we created Death By Chocolate. It started out innocently enough, she wanted to bake with me as I love cooking, and she wanted to try something new, so we made some Brownies from a pre-bought mix one day. They weren't bad, but they weren't special, and you barely got any in the pack. We went back to ASDA in the hopes of finding some inspiration on what to make. Those that know me know of my tendency to be over-the-top, so when we found some chocolate fudge icing in a tub that tasted lovely... I had a vision. When we got back, we made a test sponge from mix we made ourselves. Basic recipe being 1 egg = 50g of sugar, 50g of flour, and 50g of butter. While I don't have many shots of us cooking this one (I didn't think to take pictures), these are a couple I managed to get: [hide=Sally and I with the Cake][/hide] [hide=Presentation Slice of the Cake!][/hide] It was beautiful, the sponge was perfect, and the butter-cream on the top (a simple mix of butter and icing sugar), and some white chocolate chips baked into the sponge, it tasted amazing. Of course, I wasn't satisfied. It was beautiful, yes, but it was only the test project for Death By Chocolate, so we started work. [hide=I was very professional the entire time][/hide] [hide=A large amount of cake mix!][/hide] [hide=Half of the Cake, baked with glace cherries, white and milk chocolate chips][/hide] [hide=I watch intently as Sally mixes happily away][/hide] [hide=Did anyone ask for more butter-cream, and this time, CHOCOLATE?!][/hide] [hide=Slather that butter-cream on girl, treat it real nice..][/hide] [hide=The Finished Result - Death By Chocolate][/hide] [hide=A solo shot of the beautiful and crazy Salleh][/hide] We used 12 eggs, at least 600 grams of sugar and flour, and a lot more butter, icing sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder, chocolate sprinkles, white and milk chocolate chips, and glace cherries. While it was probably expensive as hell, it was worth it to spend time with my best friend, doing what I love doing <3:

    Welcome to day one of my blog! So, today I really started working on the account. So far I am only at 15 Firemaking and 12 Woodcutting, but I'm not done yet. I am hoping that I'll get 30 Woodcutting and Firemaking by the end of tonight. I have about 4 more hours left, so it shouldn't be a problem. I guess it really depends on my motivation. Is it just me or is it really sad that burning the logs into fires, not bonfires then taking the ashes is worth more than just cutting the log? I mean 1 inventory of ashes is 8,876gp where as 1 inventory of regular logs is 4,816gp. That's almost double the amount of money just for ashes! I guess that makes it worth burning them without a bonfire, at least until you get to Yew Logs. It takes 97 regular logs to get to 15, that's 30,749gp just in ashes for regular logs. It takes 292 oak logs to get to 30, that's 92,564gp for the oak log ashes. It takes 714 willow logs to get to 45, that's 226,338gp for the ashes of willow logs, and then it takes 2,122 maple trees to get to 60 - which is 672,674gp for maple log ashes. That totals to 1,022,325gp in ashes from level 1 woodcutting to level 60. If you use willows until 60 woodcutting then you make 1,346,299gp! All off of just burning the logs you cut separately. I think that's crazy.. but that's just me. Plus that gets you to level 63 firemaking, now I know you'll probably get a higher firemaking level using bonfires, but the money you make seems worth it to me, especially if you're on a new character like I am. If you were to sell the logs this is what you'd get.. Regular Logs: 16,684gp Oak Logs: 35,624gp Willow Logs(to 45): 14,280gp Willow Logs(to 60): 77,160gp Maple Logs: 95,490gp That's a total of 129,468gp if you do all willows to 60, and 162,078gp that's over an 800k difference, just for burning the logs for ashes. That's my rant and knowledge for the day! Good night/day!

    Varrock, 34 Novtumber 169 The widely-accepted Theory of Evolution of Combat has come under fire from fundamentalist Saradominists, who seek to introduce what they call an "alternative theory" to Gielinor's Combat Academies. "There are a lot of things Evolution of Combat can't explain," said Geoffrey Quack, a representative. "For example, if blue crabs evolved from heim crabs, why are heim crabs still around? And it can't be a coincidence that the banana is the perfect size and shape to fit in a fruit bat pouch." "We just want equal time," continued Quack. "We believe Intelligent Design of Combat is a valid alternative explanation, and it's time our schools recognized this." Lady Deathknell, headmistress of Lumbridge's famed Combat Academy and vocal advocate of the Evolution of Combat, was unavailable for comment.

    Varrock, 8 Septober 169 "Black and White", the daily cartoon starring two lovable penguins, has been pulled from the Varrock Herald's comics page. The cartoon, drawn by an anonymous artist under the pseudonym "Flipper", had been the target of criticism from readers, who disliked its thick, political humor and had difficulty empathizing with the characters. Above: Yesterday's "Black and White", criticized by readers as "Too opaque" "It just wasn't popular," said Reldo Trimmly, editor of the Herald and local comic-strip historian. "Black and White" will be replaced in the Herald's funny pages with "Monkey Boozeness", a new strip starring three monkeys and an alcoholic pirate.

    Never thought it would happen, but I am playing again. My account was stolen around 2012, apparently, and I lost everything. But dear Ard Choille gave me quite a bit to get started again. Currently questing and pulling the low skills (Div, Dung) up to "reasonable" levels. I suspect 2400 total will look like (26 levels): 80 Div (9) 90 Slayer (1) 89 Summoning (1) 73 Dung (3) 85 Str (1) 89 Agi (1) 85 Def (2) 90 RC (3) 90 HP (1) 89 Atk (1) 91 Smith (1) 91 Mining (1) 91 Cons (1) We'll see if I stay interested that long. Right now, questing is kind of fun!

    With not one, but TWO budges! As with most Elf Monster games, the pace really picks up after the fourth. [spoiler=The title is supposed to be funny!] Remember how I forgot to pick up the strength HM? That's resolved. Now we can move on. By which I mean fight this thing Which is not, in any way, a cow. Completely different phyla, there. As this is an ocean route in a Pokemon game, there were Tentacool. I took the opportunity to replace MALI With JELLY. She's going to have a long and fruitful career with me. By which I mean she'll be replaced by the red gyarados. Oops. Spoilers. Moving on, For five hundred years have we waited... Until now, of course It's working. A drug so strong, that not even its creator will take it... DIBS! So now that I've boxed MALI, I needed a new surf user Who apparently is missing a move. It's apparently poison sting. Game: 1025 Alg: 3 Spoilers: they were. Please tell me this is untranslated Chinese. Can I? Yes. Those last 9 parts were just for practice. Now the game actually starts. And we have another member of Hyt chat! YES I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT FOR ALL MY LIFE OH LOOORD And here's badge number 5. Google translate tells me this means "Shock". Erika adds that it means shock as in "shocking". The Japanese name for the badge is "Shock Badge". Well done, game. So the storm badge is the: A) KNOCKING BADGE B) ZHENHAN BADGE (/Shock) C) DUANYE BADGE Moving on. Another pretty good statement in English. At this rate, I may be able to understand some of it without having to get a translation. Wherein I give drugs to a creature that looks like it was made on drugs. So now I can go to that empty GYMNASIUM This is by far the hardest gym in the franchise. /me begins writing fanfiction Don't we all? Another day, another HYT member. Except I have this, so losing is literally impossible. But just to change things up a bit... Learning how and why the translation is so botched is just as interesting as the end result! Help me, I'm becoming a linguist. Moving on, Two BUDGEs and the plot left! Assuming the game doesn't break again, of course. [spoiler=NEXT TIME... ON POKEMON VIETNAMESE CRYSTAL] I GROW A MANLY BEARD [spoiler=Behind the scenes!]

    Hello Alex and Jeff, I have also sent this to Mark Gerhard via Facebook. This is a long discourse, but it is not a rant. It is intended to help you understand from a customer perspective what large changes such as the introduction of EoC to Runescape means, and to give you some insight into the impact the game has on people's lives. Please read it, I believe you will get some value from actively listening to your customers. Let me start by saying I am 46 years old, have been a paid member for 4 years and have a (previously) 134cb main & a 51cb pure. I understand that I am not the demographic you are aiming for. Over those years, I have, however, paid you over $4,600 in fees on my main, $2,000 on my pure, and spent over $3,000 on sof and sols. And that's just my accounts, not including the kids. I enjoy the "timeout" Runie gives me after work, the fact that I can lose myself in it and forget the worries of work, and I have always felt that the money is well spent. I met my current partner (also 46) on your game (6 year paid member, 138cb main & a 60cb pure, has also paid you over $10,000 in his time). While I understand meeting others in this way is frowned upon, it has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. We have many common interests, and I would not change it for the world, I would do anything for him. So your game has had a major impact on both of our lives. Between us, we have 6 kids from 10 to 17 years of age. All up, we have over 10 accounts, 6 of which are paid members for over 4 years. Eoc is geared towards the kids. They all love it, I have seen the renewed interest, and being a business analyst for an IT firm myself, I can see the value in this strategy for Jagex. I do understand the need to bring the game back into the present, and do not begrudge the change from this perspective at all. Our kids ARE your main demographic & so they should be. Having said that, EoC has taken ALL of the pleasure out of playing the game for my partner and myself. We both tried & hated beta, but decided to hang out & give it a go. It took us both 1 week. He has cancelled his 2 paid accounts, and I am about to do the same for both of mine. My high combat friends are all dropping off like flies. The abilities are way too overpowered, leaving us slower oldies at a major disadvantage, and the amount of bugs in the release is appalling for a game that has been in beta for over 3 months. The option to just close the action bar DOES NOT WORK against either pvms or pvps who are using abilities, leaving us at a significant disadvantage & taking away all the enjoyment. The only equivalent I can think of follows: have been a loyal paying customer of a firm providing you an excellent electricity supply for four years, but they have recenty brought in a change. Now, you can have a trickle of your former full service, enough to run the fridge, and i you want more to watch the TV, you have to hit a button on the wall every 5 seconds. There are no options to return to your previous levels of service. Ask yourselves, are you happy? Will you look for other supply options? I have no issue with the introduction of the EoC abilities for your future, but please respect your existing client base, and provide a non-eoc world or two where Momentum is permanently enabled & all other abilities are disabled. I know there is additional development / testing and ongoing support required when you have multiple configurations such as I am asking for, but I do not ask for the removal of EoC, just continued support for continued enjoyment of a game that I pay for. To be honest, Jagex would also gain other benefits of non-eoc worlds. It would separate the mature players from the kids, allowing you over time to slowly wean us off the game by leaving out further updates. It would also help you to understand how many of us there are right now, how important we are in your current client base, and how many of us truly dislike the EoC abilities. I know you don't want us in the big picture, but most of us have been loyal fans for a long period, pay you a lot, AND play a major role in raising the young minds you ARE aiming at! You have a duty to continue providing a game we can play based on our years of support. I don't want you to remove EoC, I applaud that as an organisation you can recognise when change is required, and adapt to it quickly. I just want you to accept responsibility for the expectations you have set with your existing clients. I FULLY expect you to provide me with continued pleasure from a game I enjoy & pay good money to enjoy. At the moment, this is not happening. Unfortunately, if I don't receive a response, I will be leaving completely & finding an alternative. The kids have already started looking for something for me, as they don't believe you will listen. I really hope you do. Kind regards, Hello Alex and Jeff, I have also sent this to Mark Gerhard via Facebook. This is a long discourse, but it is not a rant.

    I trained con and promptly attempted suicide. I got 92 and I'll try to get 94 or 95 tomorrow if I'm bored enough. Didn't take a screenshot so I made this: The end
