Headline News - 'HAPPY H'WEEN!'

 

When I hit the homepage, the moment I got home, I was instantly filled

 

with excitment! The Halloween 2007 event had been released! That also

 

meant I was given the honor of writing the fourth issue at light speed!

 

 

 

Sadly, I was greeted with a 'Arrrrrrrg.' as I logged on. Just my luck.

 

After pulling through the evil Prison Pete event, I teleported to Falador

 

and bolted down the pathway! On my way there, I saw those who had

 

already batten the event...sporting their new Grim Reaper hoods!

 

 

 

First, you are sent to fetch the last servant's skull in the Grim Reaper's

 

garden. It's not that hard to find, it's in the middle, completly north. You

 

can't miss it. I guess then, you start out really easy.

 

 

 

Next, you have to do some cleaning (although, the Grim Reaper warns

 

you, if you tell anyone what you find in the diary, you die. So, in order

 

to keep the surprise...and our lives, we're skipping the instructions for

 

this section :P).

 

 

 

*You notice someone...erm...slip an anonymous note to the editor*

 

Sharpener goes in the cabinet.

 

Grim's Robes goe in the fireplace.

 

Eye (ewww...) goes on the shelf.

 

Voice'o'Doom Potion goes on the bookshelves.

 

Last Will + Testamate goes on the sofa.

 

Bones goes in the Reaper's Chest.

 

Lastly, the hourglass goes in the fishy tank (fish tank).

 

 

 

[Long pause]

 

 

 

Ok, hello. I'm your new editor for this issue. So, after you get done with

 

the cleaning, your next task is to proceed up the staircase (creepy) and

 

you lastly must test the Grim Reaper's new obstacle course. Ha. No, we're

 

not kidding. It's pretty simple...

 

 

 

1. Slide down the slide *weeee*

 

2. Jump around on the springboards.

 

3. Jump in the UIL (unidentifiable liquid)

 

4. Climb out.

 

5. DO NOT STEP ON THE PITFALLS. unless you want to repeat the course and step into that disgusting liquid again.

 

6. Repeat the course one more time.

 

 

 

Once you do that, you get the hawt hood, a hawt emote, you die,

 

and you're off! Congratulations! You've completed the 2007 H'ween

 

event! We wish you all good RL Halloweens also! To all a good

 

fright!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Short Story - Resurrection: Part 1

 

The girl looked up from her reflection in the water, still unsure if what

 

she was about to do was safe. She had stumbled upon an ancient

 

chamber, deep, deep below the earth. And here, in the middle of a

 

dark, cold, large, empty space, stood a fountain, it's water smoothly

 

flowing down the many parts.

 

 

 

There was certainly something odd about the fountain, however. In

 

one part of the fountain, where the water trickled least, had a strange

 

symbol etched into it. It read, in an ancient language the girl was only

 

able to barley translate;

 

 

 

"Here I lay

 

Beneath the fountain of slay

 

Awaiting for the right time to come

 

that I shall rise from my tomb

 

And rule once again."

 

 

 

The mechanism was quite simple, there was a small knob near the

 

symbol that blocked the water from flowing down an alternate route

 

that lead to a small crystal embedded into a chamber.

 

 

 

The girl was no fully herself. She would never had pulled it, out of fear,

 

even if her life depended on it. But something inside of her, that possessed

 

her, made her reach over and turn it...

 

 

 

The knob switched the water's direction and it began to flow down the

 

tube. It began to fill the egg-shaped glass at the top, which, at the tip

 

of the egg, laid the crystal.

 

 

 

Once the water filled the glass and touched the crystal, insanity broke

 

lose.

 

 

 

The ground shook with extreme force, sending pieces of the wall across

 

the room. The chamber was going to collapse into itself.

 

 

 

It happened at once. The room filled with a green light, blinding even

 

the most sophisticated magic scrys. All was frozen, the walls crumbling

 

halted, like an Indiana Jones movie that had been paused, the water

 

stood in place, like a freeze-frame photo shop.

 

 

 

And, the most strangest of all things happened. The girl did not feel

 

guilty, nor scared, nor any other emotion. She felt like a completely

 

different person.

'The Stories of the Half Crazed Author... Cheshka Xewleer!'

 

Feature! Simoun Simula!

 

 

 

This is an explanation of Tech and such of the world my story takes place in! I'm doing this so I can spend time on the story instead of explaining things and cluttering it up! (note, I will add reminders at the bottom of the stories...)

 

 

 

Weaponry: Physical: Mainly swords, spears, all manner of meelee weapons imagined and not quite practical. Swordsmen (Women) are very respected in society. Some can be powered up with gems, more on that later Range: Bows, crossbows, and everything in between, again, some are powered by gems, more on that later.

 

 

 

Gems: gems are the most common type of power in this world, each has a different effect and a couple can power airships and the like. A couple prominent are, Diamond (photon power/beam) ruby (flame) Topaz (shielding) Garnet (break shields). Historically, when the first settlers came onto this continent (the others are lost to history/taboo) they noticed the gems there had great powers. Through a series of scientific accidents, they discovered how to most efficiently make and use them. Now gems are used every day, but these are manufactured, natural gems are more powerful, but more expensive.

 

 

 

Airships: main form of long distance transportation in this day and age. They are as varied as our cars and more powerful than the Bismark and Yamato, sometimes bigger to, in the case of the Exile (not in this story) The Pirate vessels are small and powerful, they are built for raiding, mostly, except for a couple, which have the big guns! These would normally be for Pirate captains who are over other captains. I will describe them when it comes time.

 

 

 

Pirates, and other shadowy organizations:

 

 

 

Pirate: pillagers, plunderers, this takes place in their hey-day, they consume about 50% of all alcohol on the planet. use airships instead of seagoing ships.

 

 

 

Assassin's guild: A shadow guild, no allegiance except money, have thirteen super powered members that are given the toughest missions, they are all crazy, however. Mentioned only.

 

 

 

Willowscent: A horrible place, all people from here have major morality issues, their dream is to at least conquer the continent, leading to many attempts. No one trusts anyone from here as a general rule, there are few, if any exceptions.

 

 

 

Archadia: most powerful nation, its leader is called the Mystro, who is always female. A lot of its land is made up of cities, resembling Coruscant in some places. It has the most powerful Airship navy. Their ranks are similar to the ranks of those in the British navy.

 

 

 

Skyhunters: Shame on you Shame on you that would be spoilers?

 

 

 

Note: Gunpowder exists, but more powerful than ours, it is highly taboo to use it, and is destroyed on sight, even by those who are evil.

 

 

 

There are other things, but this is generally what you will need to know before reading.

 

 

 

Thanks for reading everyone! ::' It really is great to be back!

Finally the Onyx times are back. I used to enjoy reading the old Onyx times, and I hope that the new ones will be as good as the old ones, or maybe even better?

 

The only thing I don't understand is the name. What does this Pok̮̩̉̉mon got with RS to do? onyxthumbnailyw8.gif

[hide=Wikipedia - ONYX]

 

Onyx is a cryptocrystalline form of quartz. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color (save some shades, such as Purple or Blue.) Commonly, specimens of onyx available contain bands of colors of white, tan, and brown. Sardonyx is a variant in which the colored bands are sard (shades of red) rather than black. Pure black Onyx is common, and perhaps the most famous variety, but not as common as Onyx with banded colors.

onyx is not just part of pokemon runescape.

 

 

 

onyx is an actual gem stone in real life, it is black and when polished on jewelery it shines.

 

 

 

misconception that things in pop culture are solo to that specific thing, i recall someone talking about a humunculus being related to full metal alchemist only... not true, but it is a very obscure thing to know.

Not to be the one who's not like yay yay it's back :D \:D/ , but I don't get it. What's so great about a newpaper. I mean I don't have much room to talk because I wasn't here when it was around, but is it at all different from other newpapers? Is it just stories and stuff? Don't get me wrong I'm not insulting it, but why is it great I mean it's just well I don't know a newpaper. I'm probably confused, but didn't really understand what it was.


Signatures are useless. That's why I have one.

More of a web portal than a newspaper, Project Onyx was created to differ from the other standard newspapers of Tip.It, providing interactive services that enhanced player's enjoyment of the game by accessing easy access to resources (such as OnyxCast and OnyxExchange). Project Onyx is actually the Successor to what once was the first Tip.It newspaper, The OnyxTimes.

Xew is part of your staff? Now me and Randox are gonna be competing against a fellow detective (check one of the earlier additions with the interview with KChughes for explanation on what i just said). Very good, though I feel like TGT got slightly demonized, maybe i'm just being paranoid.

Sounds really cool. So it's a newpaper but also has interactive sources. So is there like some sort of website to go to to get the interactive links and stuff. From what I know it has short stories and a marketplace ( without anything in it- no offense just a statement). But even after reading your post like 3 times that's about all I could find. Lol I'm sorry, but it sounds pretty cool cause everyone says it is so I just want to understand better what it is. :D

Seems I have to keep clarifing things today. :)

 

 

 

Our article in no way made fun of mining. It also didn't beat down the accomplishment of all those out there who have it. I personally love mining and smithing, and think it is one of the biggest accomplishments for a non member to get it leveled high. All our blah writer was specifically saying, is that if you are tying to get it there for the money you make for rune ores, you might want to rethink that. Sorry if his writing seemed a little blunt and the context not clearly explained. It was his style of writing, and I totally respect that.writting, and I totatly respect that.
