The Way we Were: A History of RuneScape


Recommended Posts

i bare the gift of my only two world maps dating;




November 2004- http://i21.tinypic.com/5ajcyu.jpg




Feb 2005- http://i23.tinypic.com/vhup04.jpg




come to think of it i wish i saved more maps :(




you can see in those few months we got given some VERY major quest areas suck as port phatsy (ghost ahoy!) monkey madness and the space where in April barrows was added!




i am seriously requesting that any player that has a picture of the old main page where the "play now" button was a huge red one, post it! I've been hunting for this for a long time now, it brings back so many memories it's just a bit older then the oldest front page currently saved.








EDIT: Holy Be-jebus! the magic carpet travel has been around for over two years?!? (see interface's update list) it seems like i first moaned on the old forums about how easy it would be to now travel in the desert only a few months ago! oh my, time does fly.






Old runescape [Classic] logo (i think around '02-'03 (trawling through the archive.org site now.))




Current '04 to now.

The picture you have at 'Easter 2006' is in fact Easter 2007 (Notice the people with the chicken suits)




Anywho, here are some real pictures of Easter '06.




The big bird (the source of Easter eggs :D)






Yourself as a wee bunny :D
















The eggs you were supposed to dig up and eat. You had to eat the magic one in order to become a bunny, and enter the hole.






Thanks to Jwrm22 for helping me with the signature :D

Have a look at my 'Land of Fakes'

Private chat ON, give me a HYT and I'll HYT you back :D

Oh, I love this thread. I have played since 2004 and I remember a lot of these things. I find it hard to believe that most people have played less than a year. I never really considered myself an old player until now. I was never RSC but I remember lots of graphics changes and those old holiday events. I think I will go wack people with my rubber chicken. =P
