A Quester and An Athlete~ by Kitty and LizBeth ~
- How long did you take in 'World's Best 10k Race'?
40:54 my best time in a 10k.
- How did you find out about Clan Quest? Were you totally impressed the first time you joined?
I Found out about Clan Quest by searching for a Quest clan through the forums and when I saw it I'm like, "OMG! This is coo!!"
- How long have you been playing Runescape? What got you started playing the game? Was there a time wherein you have to stop playing for awhile?
I've played the game for 3 years. I started playing when I was little and I played for 2 days straight! Then I stopped playing until a few years later.
- When did you become interested in cross-country running? Being that it's an endurance sport, how do you train for it? Is there a system that you follow to prepare yourself prior to a competition, or you just do it on your own? How often do you compete?
When I was 7 years old I was so hyper that I kept jumping and running around a lot; so my parents put me in a cross-country team. Being in this type of sport, you have to be conditioned, so you have to run almost 5-6 times a week combining it with long distance and sprint exercises. And yeah, when a competition comes up it gets more intense that you have to strengthen the legs and prepare your muscles. Competing is always random, it depends on what events you want to do and others that you have to do!
- How have you gained all the money you give away to clan members, in clan events, and the random events in the chat? (e.g., guess the number)
Hmm, I like to give and I think it's really fun to play games with prizes. I probably gained it from the past, and skilling, of course!
- What was your first impression of the clan? Is it still the same to this day? If it's changed, how has it changed?
My first impression of the clan was, "What An Awesome Clan!" It still is the same to me though things has changed, too, but in a good way, of course.
- If you had to pick one of your favorite activities in RuneScape (Skilling, minigames, events, etc.) what would it be and why?
My favorite activities in RuneScape would have to be events with clan and Questing. It's like an awesome adventure!
- What are your RuneScape goals, if you have any?
Well, My only goals right now are 99 Fishing and Ranged.
- What keeps you interested in this clan, that makes Clan Quest stand out from the other clans that are out there?
The community is awesome, I'm not an expert in clans, but I know this clan is special. We can do many different things and we can all relate to each other. it's like a global activity clan, I would say.
- What has inspired you to have the name "Karen Angel"?
Hmm, I just wanted an awesome name so I thought of that ^^ jajaja!
- What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment in life?
My biggest accomplishment would be having the courage to believe in myself and to keep moving forward no matter what obstacles lie ahead. They aren't indestructible!
- Do you wish you could accomplish something greater? If so, what?
As in Greater I believe in big goals, and yeah, I'm willing to accomplish those goals that seem like a dream.
- Why are you always hyper?
Well, to be very honest I'm a happy person, but when I was younger the doctor said I had ADHD! Naturally, when you're an athlete your blood pressure goes down when you are not exercising, so I guess I'm now a little less HYPER!
- Does being hyper help during running in real life or is it a disadvantage for you?
I guess it is an advantage to always be pumped, but in the long run it matters how hard you trained.
- How do you manage to stay so positive all the time?
The key is to be thankful for what you have and feel blessed for the way you are able to live. There is a lot of people who have it worse and what I do is try my best to help, and those who need help will always be in my prayers.
* April is Karen's birthday month - Happy Birthday to our darling Angel!

A Twisted Monster Lurks Beneath our Citadel~!~ by Infinity ~!~
He is the reason behind the cause of all citadels’ decay and fall. Because of his powers, he can cause multiple pieces of the citadels to fall down on the world of Gielinor. Not only the world but multiple dimensions shared by the world as well.
The king smiled such a smile. Beckoning on the might of the groups that call themselves ‘clans’, he draws them in for a share of the experience and working his magic on us, he corrupts all he touches. Welcoming a challenge, as he has become bored of working small magic on mortals, he desires for something much more. Bloodlust! With the ‘rebirth’ of the citadels and the never-ending guards that patrols the citadels, he can feed upon them and devour their essence.
His name is Corruption.
He is the source of all things natural and unnatural. He tempts countless others with riches and experiences, only to bring them further into his corruption – drawing more power from corrupting the mortals. He seeks to bring the End of All Things; he waits for the day of the second God Wars.
All his plans are working out smoothly as he expected, save for one detail. He made a mistake in allowing his works of despair, the decayed citadels, to be opened up for mortals to make into their own homes.Somehow, as the mortals work on them and improved their home, the twisted king could sense his strength weakening. It was not what he expected. Their goals were noble and light-hearted. He expected them to be obsessed with the experience that comes from hard work of caring for their home, not THIS!
Dragonkin and their creations. He hated them. Normally he could easily flick them off but not the citadel dragons. For some unknown reason, the ancient Armadylian magicks affected the citadel dragon to purify the very skies from his natural evil. King Corruption rages and hates. He waits for the day when the clan mates slip up and he can reclaim his works of despair back.
His eyes, dark and burning with hatred, he stares at the world and spies on the portal that links the world to the citadels. It was a careless mistake to give that dreaded portal to the mortals.
Standing up on the below-surface of the citadel, he held up his right hand and beckoned them all on. He waits for the day of destruction. The day when the world dies. His eyes flashed darkly and he disappeared, off to work even more of his magicks on mortals and immortals alike, his touch of corruption slowly rotting us all...

It is now time to bid farewell to Mr. & Mrs. Dragonfire, Nogard's parents. They have given our Citadel a fine young dragon and Nogard has taken total posession of his kingdom with us. We have enjoyed the time they spent with us, but their job here is done.
The Dragon Counsel has need of them at other citadels now, to help populate the Clan Citadels which are still working on getting a dragon. I am sure he will visit his parents and relatives, cousin Odorf, Uncle Norbert, and Aunt Fluffy; from time to time, and they will visit us again, someday. For now, Farewell!

An old 18th century English dish, named for the sounds the ingredients make while cooking (or from the sound one's stomach makes after eating it). Some sources say it was originally cold boiled beef and chopped cabbage, others claim it was originally mashed potatoes and cabbage, while some claim it originally contained all three.
Today it is typically made from leftover potatoes and cabbage or any vegetables fried together.
You have to use some mashed potato as a base and then stir or mash in leftover boiled cabage, broccoli, carrots or whatever you have. You should keep the ratio of potatoes to vegetables at least 1:1. Though, it is very delicious if all you have left is mashed potato.
If you like, you can stir in an egg; this is especially useful if the potato is dry and difficult to form. Season with salt and pepper.
You can either use Olive Oil (if you're a healthy eater) or lard/animal fat (if you don't care much about cholesterol). Get some oil nice and hot in a frying pan. You may use bacon in the pan first and then use the fat to fry the bubble and squeak in.
You can add your mixture in a single layer or as separate patties. You don’t need any flour to help seal it as it will burn. Instead, add your mix and press it down firmly and then leave it undisturbed for at least 5 minutes. When a nice crust has formed, use a spatula to turn it over. Do this in parts – there’s no way you’ll be able to turn it in one piece.
When both sides have achieved a nice dark-brown crust, it is ready to serve up. Use bits of bacon, poached eggs and a good dash of Worcestershire sauce.
The super-hot and densely-packed vegetables create pressure that is let out through any gaps. According to the original recipe, if you didn’t use animal fats, you can’t achieve the high temperatures that give you the bubbles and the squeaks, plus the crust isn’t quite as burnt and satisfying. It's good to know that you can always go for the healthier fare.
