i like to read all the lores and histories that come out ("The Fall of Six" is my fave) and especially enjoy the depth in which some of the quests go to not just tell you the story of the quest, but background into the story of the whole of runescape.



I must admit, i did think this might be a good read (if it's anything like the lores), but i too cringed at the sight of the price - £13.99 for a novel based around a game i pay £3.20 a month to play. if i was younger and not working, that'd be a choice of a book based loosely on Runescape, or 4 months of actually playing the game itself (and that's not including delivery prices, i never got that far).



It is a good idea, but not something i'll partake in. After all, you can get "Making Money" by Terry Pratchett for £5.00 and you can guarantee that it will make you laugh.

I don't think many teenagers will buy this, unless it's for home reading. I don't think anyone would want to be caught reading a RuneScape novel during class. :-#

I said no in the poll. Mainly because of 2 things. One the price is rediculously high. Second my rl friends hate runescape. -.-

And besides I am not intrested in this story.

Runescape isn't my life, sorry.



To be honest I'd rather read about real life history, like about the Cold War or something. While neither is very interesting, one makes you sound smarter and less nerdy while one makes you sound dumber and more nerdy.



I play the game for recreation, not to immerse my life into it. Besides, 90% of teenagers probably don't read anything they don't have to (school work). For the Runescape population it's probably like 60% don't.



Jagex makes their money on memberships because we like to play Runescape. They shouldn't try to do the same for all of the reading-for-recreation people and hardcore RS players who read and know everything.

No. I'm going to stick with science fiction for both my good literature and my badly written pulp. I have no desire whatsoever to buy, let alone read this rubbish written by an author I've never heard of, with a horrid plot, based on an mmo. From the description, it honestly sounds like the script for a RS themed horror/suspense/thriller/whatever movie with a $1250 budget and no acting talent.





No. Just no.
There is no meaning or truth in life but that which we create for ourselves.

I have to agree with many on here, RS isn't my life. I have more important things to spend my money on. Plus I'm not -that- much of a nerd. I mean come on, if I went into one of my college courses and had a book of RS, I'd auto fail that class. ^.^
