Well hello hoods there, noobs of Clan Quest!
We are the Content Editors, those who work to produce great things like the magazine you are reading right now. We do it for free, and not because we are slaves, but because we love doing this for us, for you and the clan as a whole. Unfortunately, it seems that we are human as well (not always, though), and sometimes we can’t reach the goals and deadlines we want or need to achieve.
Some time ago we kinda really overhyped and brainstormed each other with a thousand ideas. The wiki, the offsite, the magazine, an anthem, social media, Runefest, and more, and more, and, yes, more. We, or at least I, forgot that there is this tiny little factor called real life. We started at twice our max speed and projects like revitalizing our social media came to a halt. So yeah. We need more people. We need clannies wanting to help us create and develop. There are wiki, magazine and social media teams.
I’m pretty sure Cireon will bring this up in his bulletin, but I want to be popular as well: If you want to help, even if you are not sure how to, contact us. Santa has been in charge of the magazine for a long time and you can always ping him if you are curious about how it works and what can you do. Every other Editor or Councillor can and will be there if you have questions about this. Just don’t be shy! Do you wanna know how I started in the magazine? No, really? Welp.
Thank you, have a great month and be sure to contact us or the Pawfia will find you

The Last Elegy
A Clan Quest story
By Tyco Elf
The sun was shining. The banners flapped as an afternoon breeze swept through the courtyard of the citadel. The guards stood lined up between the portal and the entrance to the keep, saluting every adventurer that arrived. Not only humans but a variety of races from distant lands, shown by their style of clothes and the state of their armor. While nobody was like the other, the one thing they had in common were the cape on their backs. Grey in color, trimmed with cyan and wearing the symbol of quests. They were all members of Clan Quest: the questing clan.
The heavy doors of the keep swung open for every individual that arrived. A strong gust swept through the citadel as Nogard, the frost dragon of Clan Quest, swept over the entrance while chasing something small. Those with sharp eyes could see Nuli, a young hybrid white/blue dragon, elegantly fly through the air while doing sharp turns to escape the older dragon. The guards who didn’t stand directly by the protecting wall checked their helm and hardened their grips on their shields. They had all been instructed that dragons were very loyal creatures, but even so the sight of two dragons playing tag still resulted in some dangerous situations as they sometimes swept only a few meters above the ground. As the last adventurer arrived, they turned one-by-one towards the entrance and returned to the courtyard. They had duties to perform while the adventurers would perform their rituals for this special occasion.
The gathering hall was full of life. The bleachers had been temporarily removed and replaced with two very long dining tables, now filled with adventurers lively laughing, arguing and having small talk while waiting for the main event. It was hard not to be fascinated over the sigh of the different races gathered in one place. Human, Auspah, cat-beast, ork, humanoid shark, vampire and other races that one couldn’t be certain of unless you asked.
Someone knocked a fork against a glass and the talking slowly faded as the sound of silver against crystal echoed through the keep. The adventurers turned towards the two white doors at the north wall. After a few seconds, a dark voice fill the room in what appeared to be a humming song.
Everyone took their knife and fork on their empty plates and started hammering in choir on the table.
The voice was heard again, starting from a higher tone this time and one could distinguish words from it.
The final word was said in such a low tone that it could have come from a zombie. The adventurers gave the table another round of synchronized hammering.
The voice did a dramatic pause, filling the room with suspense.
And out from the doors flew the chefs Blaa and Werecool, both in their whitest clothing and balancing a stack of cabbages in both hands. The adventurers went wild! They whistled, cheered, threw their hats and applauded. A banner was unfolded, reading “Happy Cabbage Day” on it. The two chefs started distributing the cabbages among the plates and the adventurers slowly calmed down. A couple of them exchanged a suspicious look as they noticed Werecool’s proud face. Blaa noticed their looks and knew what they had in mind.
- Do not worry, all the cabbages were cooked by me.
The adventurers made a sigh of relief. Werecool’s inability to cook was next to legendary. Some even wondered how he escaped tutorial island. The most popular rumor claimed the tutors forcefully made him leave after various cases of food poisoning among the newly adventurers, causing a generation to abandon their dreams of fortune and glory. Whoever had decided to put him on the kitchen today clearly didn’t believe such rumors.
Blaa was also showing a proud smile. Weeks of experiments and teachings from various cooks around Gielinor about how to make the perfect cabbage for an occasion like this was finally paying off. He could already see this going into the history books. But what Werecool said next made his heart freeze.
- Well, I did contribute a little you know.
Blaa turned towards the smiling chef. The other adventurers watched as his face took the same color as his clothes.
- You didn’t…….
- What? I couldn’t call myself a chef if I didn’t do anything.
The room went silent. Blaa was petrified. For a moment the chefs only stared at each other. Blaa’s lips barely moved as he finally managed to ask the question everyone feared to hear.
- How many?
Werecool put his index finger on in his chin and seemed to be in deep thought. Then he answered as he seemed to remember.
- That would be five.
Everyone in the room stared at their plates. What had gone from a festive dinner had now turned into a game of zamorakian roulette. The content in front of them could literally be their last meal. And if that wasn’t enough, Blaa now had the expression as if a piece of his soul had been destroyed.
Then everything went to chaos.
Multiple rifts appeared at the roof of the gathering hall and out came Mskonnan, Sirapyro, Airborne, Sethron, Kappa and Hemsky. The sitting adventurers fell backwards as the unexpected guests fell on top of the tables and made plates, silverware, glasses and cabbages fly in all directions, some even hitting the surprised faces of the guests.
- My cabbages! Not my beautiful cabbages!
The nightmare became too much for him and Blaa fainted where he stood. A sharkman adventurer regained his sense of logic and stood up.
- Get the nurse! We have inj...
A new rift appeared and the sharkman didn’t finish his sentence as Tothli and Lord Earth landed on top of him. In the meantime a human adventurer had started to laugh at the sight of his neighbour, whose face had been covered in cabbage. In retaliation the neighbour took the closest cabbage he could find and threw it, only to miss and hit the person beside the human.
Ten seconds later and Clan Quest was engaged in an all-out cabbage war.

November is always a bit of a special month for us Clan Questers. November 9, 2009, Clan Quest was officially founded, which means that the clan has now existed for eight years already. That is a pretty long time, if you think of it. We don't have big events planned this time around, since we're still working hard on evolving Clan Quest into a bigger and better place.
Last month has been pretty quiet; many people returned to real life obligations after the initial rush post-Runefest, but we're still working on implementing them. We're making sure to gather enough feedback, since the community should always come in the first place. We want everybody to be happy going forward, so look out for some announcements soon when we're ready to share more.
So far I think we have been pretty successful. I ask everybody to make a note of the C.O.R.E. Event in your calendar every week, and log in for an hour whenever you can to have some crazy fun with your clannies. Thanks to all the hosts so far - Siiyan, Questcaping, and Tyco Elf - for hosting.
The C.O.R.E. Event format was created so that hosts have almost no work to organize the event. We made sure that everybody is ready to go. We only need to get some people together and pick one of the many events. In the survey, you asked for more events, and this is how we hope to get them to you. The format was designed to be reusable, so if you want to start organizing a C.O.R.E. Event at a different time that's maybe more convenient for you, get some people together and get going. If you get 3 clannies to help out, you only have to spend one hour a month to get an awesome weekly event going!
For more information, check out the thread or the wiki page.
Dimension of the Damned
Clan Quest website
We're always looking for more people to help with filling the Clan Quest wiki with content or even working on the actual website code if you can commit some time regularly and don't mind working independently. If you're happy to help with these things, or just feel like you want to contribute to the clan in any way, just drop me a PM and we can figure out some cool stuff to do together.
