CLAN QUEST PEOPLE
An interview with clan vet Rei
Thank you Podrick-I mean, Rei, for letting us get to know you a bit better! You're an awesome person to have a conversation with, and my world has been turned upside down with this new information on your username. Can I still pronounce it as 'Ray'?
PS: And thank you so much Alaska for having helped this month. Happy birthday!

CLAN QUEST WAS HERE!
Annotated picture: https://clanquest.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=6319
Clan Quest attended RuneFest this year, and what an attendance! Over 15 clannies met in London, many coming from overseas. Some left right after the Fest, some stayed a bit more, and rumours say Santa is still there.
There are some testimonies and pics from those who attended. Enjoy!
I think you've already realised that everyone mentioned that meeting clannies was either the best or one of the best things of RuneFest.
This is irrefutable evidence that we belong to the best clan ever.
Go Brassica, go bronze, go CLAN QUEST!!!!
I hope I'll meet some of you next year!
PS: Happy 25th birthday Cireon!

A Clan Quest story
By Tyco Elf
The mage swore as Airborne fell on top of him as they both hit the ground. Sethron, who had witnessed everything in what had appeared to be in slow motion, suddenly snapped out of his trance as he realized he had a second chance. His energy was suddenly back after watching his heroic friend’s sacrifice. As the experienced ranger he was, he drew an arrow from his quiver and put it on the bowstring in one motion. He felt the weight on the string as he drew back the arrow to its full capacity. He raised the bow and looked at his opponent. He wouldn’t miss this time.
And then the bowstring snapped. Sethron fell backwards as the sudden break made him stumble. The sound of metal against rock echoed as the bolt slid across the floor after cutting the bowstring. The hooded figure didn’t waste time to reload his right crossbow and raised his left one, this time aimed in between the adventurer’s eyes. Sethron felt the blood turn into ice as he saw the ranger’s finger harden around the trigger. Time itself seemed to have slowed down as he saw his life flash before his eyes. Then the hood fell off.
The room went silent. After a dramatic pause, Sethron finally got his voice back.
- WHERE IN BRASSICA’S GARDEN HAVE YOU BEEN?!?!
- Is that what you say to your saviours?
Hemsky lowered his left crossbow and turned towards his companion, who was still struggling to lift Airborne’s heavy body from him. He sighed and walked towards them, grabbing Airborne and slowly but surely lifted him up with a groan. The mage, now finally free, got up on his legs and removed his hood as he began to brush the dust off his robes.
- I decide to heal him and the first thing he does is to charge me. What in the world happened to him?
Tothli picked up his staff and looked as Hemsky dropped Airborne beside Kappa and leaned him on the pillar. He put his fingers on the neck of the body.
- He’s just unconscious. I think he fainted from the shock when the spell hit him. Are you OK, by the way?
Hemsky turned towards Sethron, whose heart was beating like a hammer on an anvil. Seconds ago he had been in a life or death situation and now reinforcements were here. He tried to answer, but realized his mouth was completely dry as his first attempt to talk failed. He nodded in response and closed his eyes as he felt the adrenaline slowly fade out. Sira, who had been silent this whole time, finally managed to stand up despite her injuries.
- Please tell us you have a teletab!
Tothli opened his backpack while walking towards her. He then took out a blue-greyish flat stone with an inscription on it and handed it over to the adventuress.
- There you go, one-way ticket straight to home.
Sira’s eyes shined. Home. There wasn’t any other place on Gielinor that he loved more than the floating citadel in the sky. She accepted the teletab and embraced it as if it was her own child. Tothli continued and took out another teletab for MsKonnan. As he bent down to the sitting adventuress, she hugged him and gave him a light kiss on the cheek. Tothli turned red as he handed over the teletab and turned the other way in embarrassment. At the other end of the room Hemsky also gave out teletabs to Kappa and Sethron.
Cireon smiled. A moment ago, he thought they would all meet their end and now everyone would soon be home. He could already hear the smith’s complaints when returning with the almost unrecognisable shields that had been repaired a couple of days ago. Oh well, he could deal with that after a large cup of coffee. Thinking about shields, he remembered that he was still unarmed. Hemsky yelled to Cireon.
- We are ready to head home!
- Just a second, I have to get something.
With some effort he stood up and stretched his back before approaching the dead body of Nomad. He gripped the handles of his trustworthy weapons and tried shaking them a little. The rapiers didn’t move. He sighed and realized they were stuck deeply into the wall. This was going to take a bit of power. Without hesitating, he put his foot between the rapiers, on the body, and groaned as he began to pull with everything he was worth.
Then everything happened so fast.
The rapiers were released by the force of Cireon’s muscles and were unstuck. As the adventurer lost his balance from the sudden release, a hand grabbed his ankle with an iron-hard grip. Unable to keep his balance, Cireon fell backwards on the hard floor. Nomad raised the adventurer’s leg with his left hand as if he was holding up a fish.
The soul generator, that had gone lifeless after the battle came back to life. Lightning crackled around the spires on top of it as its activity increased exponentially. Nomad quickly pulled forth a scroll from his robe, slammed it into the wall and began chanting.
- Vagus animis egredimini de loco isto creatorem amplector.
Lord Earth stood up and ran towards them as if his injuries were a lie. Tothli looked at the running adventurer for a split second before sprinting after him. The scroll merged with the wall and formed a shining white portal. Nomad took his spear and slowly started to walk through it, dragging the struggling Cireon with him.
The soul generator, like if it knew its master was heading to safety, suddenly released a beam of white light from its spires that pierced the underground roof towards the surface. Bricks began to rain from above as the internal structure became unstable and the already weakened pillars began creaking from the pressure. Tothli screamed without looking back.
- GO NOW! I will be right behind!
He heard as several teletabs broke around the room and teleported their owners to safety. In front of him Lord Earth was dodging falling debris that fell faster every second. He knew that neither Cireon or Lord Earth would have the means to get to safety even if they somehow reached each other. He had to reach them before they were buried alive.
Cireon was desperate, if not in full-out panic. He flailed his arms in desperation to find anything to grab onto as his body slowly started disappeared into the portal. But there was nothing, not even a hole in the floor that he could grab as he saw Nomad’s hand drag his leg through it. Then he heard someone shout his name and looked up. Lord Earth ran through the rain of falling debris and threw himself forward the last meters before landing in front of his ally and grabbing his hand with everything he got.
- Do not leave me!
Cireon took his hand with gratitude, but whatever luck Lord Earth had must have ran out as falling bricks started hitting him. Tears rolled over his cheeks as his shoulders, ribs and legs felt the full force of the debris. To make it worse, Cireon was still being dragged into the portal despite the added resistance.
The last of the pillars that still were standing gave in, causing the whole room to shake. A cave-in was inevitable. Cireon looked at Earth and smiled.
- There must be something wrong with me.
More tears rolled from Lord Earth’s cheeks as he began shaking his head. Despite everything that was falling on Lord Earth, Cireon knew that it wasn’t the physical pain that made him cry.
- No. Please, don’t. Do not say it. It’s not true if you don’t say it.
Lord Earth looked directly into the eyes of Cireon. He wanted to be mistaken, but he knew he wasn’t. The smile that Cireon had, it was the smile of goodbye. Cireon closed his eyes.
- You are Earth, yet I see heaven in your eyes.
As the roof fell down from above, he let go of Lord Earth’s hand.
Lord Earth never felt the pain of debris or the adventurer that threw himself over him, as the sight of Cireon disappearing into the portal was more painful than anything he had ever felt before.

Please i want to be a bit greedy and nominate two if thats allowable....
Wolffi for putting up with my sometimes absolute stupid questions and having the patience to answer in a language that i can understand
Tyco Elf, who has given his time to come and talk to me in citadel, explain to me how ability bars work and shared with me how to fix mine and encouraged me to give things a go instead of being too afraid to take part in much. I have for various reasons always been afraid to share things with clan members or to rely on others. Thank you Tyco you are a great guy.I truly appreciate the help given to me by both these clan members, I have never experienced it before and it makes my heart sing that there are clan members out there that are willing to help and give up their time to support and help..

How does one write the clan bulletin after the month of RuneFest where a record number of Clan Quest members met with each other and turned London on its head with their awesomeness? And if that wasn't hard enough, meeting clan members in person is a great way to not only collect feedback about the clan, but also make plans about the clan's future. During the weekend, I have talked about more plans for the clan than in the months before, which has resulted in a long todo list of things to work on over the next few weeks, months, years. This has probably surfaced in a surge of activity around the board, and it doesn't look like this will die down any time soon.
In this month's bulletin, I will try to point out the most important plans and decisions made during the weekend, since it is nearly impossible to touch upon all of what was discussed. We are trying to keep track of what we're doing using a public todo-list on our Wiki. If there is anything that you feel like helping out on, make sure to let me or another councillor know. We try to discuss as many of the things as possible in the public voice chat, and you're always welcome to hop on in and contribute. We value every member's opinion.
Personally, RuneFest was incredibly valuable for me to get a direct line towards some of our clan members. The people behind the screen name are always slightly different than you expect them to be, and not in a bad way. It is great to actually get to know people through real-life interaction, and I think I speak for all attendees that last weekend has enhanced our membership to this clan.
Meeting in person is also a way to really quickly talk through the running of the clan. With three High Councillors and four (six by the end of RuneFest) Low Councillors present, in addition to a large group of members to bounce off ideas, it becomes very easy to set out a path for the clan in the next months and years. Sure, most of the ideas we already had, but there is something about being in the same room that moves things forward at a much quicker pace.
We - as a clan - made full use of RuneFest to give Clan Quest exposure among the JMods and playerbase alike. Using matching t-shirts and hoodies, we made sure to stand out where we could, and I am certain that we recruited quite a few people into our clan by talking to them.
All in all, RuneFest was a huge success, even though we could have done things better. With many members showing up, RuneFest is turning into one of the biggest clan events of the year, and we can do better at organising that. We're keeping track of a timeline to make sure we make the most out of our in-person clan meeting next year.
The wiki is the largest website project we as a clan have ever undertaken. Up to now, we have always been limited in our website content by whatever is posted on the forums, or what is added to the website by the actual web developers. By adopting a wiki system, we make it possible for every clan member to contribute to the content of the website.
We are currently working on integrating the wiki into our main website, so it looks indistinguishable from existing pages on the website. The wiki is also publicly readable, and so it will also be our way of creating world-readable content. Projects right now include a full Clan Quest history in the form of a timeline, a recommended quest order based on lore, and a user page system. For those unfamiliar with wiki systems: every user has their personal page they can fill in as they desire. Our medium to long term goal is to integrate the content you create there with your in-game avatar(s) and forum profile to create a personalised user page.
If you want to get started with contributing, head on over to the wiki and use the login button in the top right. This will automatically log you in if you are logged into the offsite forums. Consider making a start on your user page or look at the wanted pages. The Content Editors group is available if you have any questions. We'll soon be posting a getting started guide as well.
While yes, the new Constitution will allow us to introduce new games towards the clan, we are also dedicated to keeping Clan Quest the awesome place it is. That is why we don't expect anything to fundamentally change when the new Constitution comes into effect. Hopefully it will give us the power to be more inclusive to members who want to be part of our family, even if they do not have any ties with RuneScape per se. But don't worry, we will never forget our roots :)
We also moved the Gaming forums up, together with the Player Safekeeps, since those don't have to be RuneScape related. We are still working on a good way to indicate what your Player Safekeep is about, so keep an eye out for an announcement on that.
Currently we are in the prototype phase, where we are trying to come up with ideas for a Clan Quest logo. If you have ideas for a Clan Quest logo, or if you have graphical skills you are willing to use on our logo, make sure to let us know.
We'll make sure to share the concepts with you early, so we can work towards a logo everybody can stand behind. Keep your eyes out for a feedback thread on this soon.

The Oncoming Sandstorm
A Recap of RuneScape's Desert Quest Series
In light of the desert quest series receiving four new instalments alongside the Menaphos update, I will be posting articles across the next few months with recaps of what has happened so far in the story. This is just something to read and get to speed on past events quickly, seeing as these quests were completed by many of us years back...and the series is long!
The next four quests down the line - Missing My Mummy, The Jack of Spades and Crocodile Tears.
