August has been a busy month for many of us here in the High Council, and we have been dragging some clannies along with us. There is plenty of news to share this time, so let me skip right ahead to the first point.
As always, we are always looking for more people to people to help us out, so if any of the user groups sounds interesting to you, get in touch with me or the group leader and we'll make sure we find you a good place.
We don't want to leave you out, because from the survey it was pretty clear that you have plenty of awesome ideas yourselves. Please take a look at this thread and share your top 3 ideas of content that we should add to the offsite, and we'll do our best to make it possible.
Right now we're working hard to make sure the Wiki system works well with the rest of the website. You will be able to reuse your forum login, so there is no need for a separate account to contribute. The only work left for now is to make sure it looks like it's part of the rest of the website, but hopefully we'll be able to start serving user-created content to you soon!
As part of the Wiki project, we also hope that everybody in the clan will write a user-page for themselves. You can use it as your safekeep, put information about yourself on it, or just fill it with pictures of your abs (*cough*). Hopefully we will be able to combine this page with your forum and Runescape stats in the future to create an awesome profile page for every member in this clan. We are not quite ready yet to let you work on it, but it is never too early to start thinking about the content, and you can always use our stale Clan Quest Wikia to experiment. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Clan history project
Meanwhile, we have made sure to incorporate the feedback of the survey in the changes that we are currently developing, and we will keep working on listening to your feedback. Feel free to drop me a message if you have anything to share.
Make sure to let us know if you're attending or around London during the Runefest weekend, because you're always welcome to join. Check back here next month for a full report on our Clan Quest Runefest trip.

Clan Quest RAWR Awards
"Wise Ork" wrote: I would like to nominate LukeTotodile. He was there when I needed him most, helping me when I was struggling with my own sexuality. It is thanks to him that I dared admit/face the fact that I am bisexual, and that has been such a huge weight off my shoulders. He truly has my eternal gratitude.
"Cireon" wrote: I nominate Questcaping for the RAWR awards. Apart from being awesome and organising events (CAH ftw!), Questcaping has taken it upon herself to arrange the facilitation of the international meal the night before Runefest. She has looked for facilities and contacted them to make sure we could use them. I am sure this has cost quite a bit of time, and still she's working on making it happen. Awesome work!
Three people were involved in the selection of a winner. And they chose....
Wait a second... -You may say- What are the RAWR Awards??
Check this link!
PS: Please remember no clannie is better than other just because they won a RAWR edition. You're already a winner if you made it to this thread, because it means you care about others and make our clan a better place every day. Thanks to Cyberman and Cireon for nominating and congratulations to Luke and Questcaping. See you next month!

Shake U by herbrightskies, done by 99orwoh. It is a multi editor project with many familiar faces. My choice parts were seeing Angeledits improve so much from the constant practice, Misfit Hita's nicely timed clips and Incognito's cinematic clips that blew my mind.

The Last Elegy
A Clan Quest story
By Tyco Elf
- Give me two minutes.
- Don’t joke Cireon. Four minutes.
Lord Earth was lying on the floor. His belly was moving rapidly as he drew air after the exhausting battle with the Master of Souls. Around the room the others did the same, some with their backs against a pillar and others following his example. At the very end of the room was Nomad, still nailed to the wall after the deadly dive of Cireon. MsKonnan tried to raise her hand as she spoke, but gave up halfway.
- I second that. Four minutes.
Sirapyro groaned as she rolled over to the closest pillar and supported herself against it.
- This is why I hate combat.
Airborne, who had regained consciousness, took a deep breath before speaking.
- Think positive. Irene will fix you when we get back.
Sirapyro turned towards him with a serious look on her face.
- Are you kidding? Have you seen the size of that needle she stitches you up with? Yo, I ain’t some protean hide fam!
Lord Earth started to laugh but stopped immediately as he began coughing from his injuries. Cireon simply smiled and so did Airborne.
- Well, it’s either that or the Butcher at the Duel Arena.
Silence fell over the room, only interrupted by coughs and heavy breathing from the adventurers. MsKonnan looked down and began stroking her ribs. Lord Earth followed her example and started checking his own condition. Sirapyro decided that lying down without moving was a better option than the pillar.
After a while, to the glad surprise of Airborne and Sethron, Kappa regained consciousness. He didn’t have to ask for the situation. Nomad’s body across the room and the huge cracks on the walls and pillars around him explained everything. After countless minutes, MsKonnan looked at Cireon with heavy eyes.
- I’m sorry, but I don’t think I’m in any condition to move. He broke a couple of my ribs.
She reflexively removed her hand as she accidently touched the place Nomad’s kick had hit the hardest. Lord Earth, who now had begun to sweat, looked up for the first time since his last cough.
- Don’t think I’m in any working condition either. He hit a really soft spot.
Cireon turned his head towards Sirapyro. Judging from her not-moving behavior, she was in a similar condition as well. Kappa looked at the uncertain leader. As no orders were received, he bent forward from the pillar and grabbed his backpack behind him. Placing it aside, he slowly opened it with one hand without doing any unnecessary movements. He then fumbled inside for a bit, and grabbed something. Airborne and Sethron watched as he took out a blue-greyish powder and let it fall to the floor through his fingers. He sighed.
- I guess this explains why all the food disappeared. Why do teletabs have to be so fragile?
- Like that time when we put a couple beneath the chairs at the citadel of Glory and Gold. Remember the sound they made as their butts hit the floor?
Sirapyro busted out in laughter and immediately curled into a ball as her injuries reminded themselves. Airborne placed both hands on his mouth as mixed sounds of coughing and laughter came out. Lord Earth began biting his left hand while wobbling back and forth in an attempt to not give in. MsKonnan was the only one not smiling. She looked rather annoyed at the memory of it. Cireon closed his eyes as he began to smile. He slowly pulled his hand over his face, waited a few seconds and then looked at Sethron while pointing at him.
- One more joke and you’ll be Nogard’s dentist for a month. And that breath ain’t pretty. Also, apologies to the wounded.
- Oh well, you’re right. I am……
Sethron stopped as Cireon raised his hand to signal him to be silent. The others stopped breathing. At the end of the room they had come through, footsteps could be heard.
- One………..no. It’s two.
Cireon went pale. They were out of food. The teletabs had been smashed. Sirapyro, Lord Earth and Mskonnan were heavily wounded. Airborne and Kappa had just regained consciousness and not in a better condition than the rest. And worst of all, his rapiers were deeply stuck into the wall. He swallowed as he realized they couldn’t escape from this. This would truly be the end.
He saw Sethron pick up his longbow, draw an arrow and aim at the entrance. The footsteps came closer by the second. Cireon saw that his hands were shaking as the arrow was pulled back into the bowstring and stretched to its limit. He realized that Sethron was fully aware that everything depended on that shot. If he could take out the first enemy, there was a slight possibility of the second one hesitating. That would mean time for a second shot.
The footsteps were just outside now. Ten meters…..five meters……two meters! Sethron released the arrow and let the bowstring send it away just as a hooded figure appeared at the entrance.
He missed. If it had been the nervousness or simply a bad shot nobody could tell. When the sound of steel against brick occurred, the hooded figure drew his two crossbows. Another hooded figure appeared behind him, wielding a long staff. It began glowing as the mage began chanting while taking runes from his pocket.
- Not good!
The words were more like a whisper than a shout. Airborne looked quickly at Sethron, who seemed paralized. Kappa wasn’t in any better condition, leaning against a pillar. Airborne took a deep breath, then stood up and screamed. Running as fast as he could, he charged against their mysterious opponents, picking up Sethron’s shield with his left hand as he ran by it. He raised it towards his chin and roared.
For some reason the ranger hadn’t fired his crossbows. Maybe the screaming was working, but Airborne didn’t think it further. The mage was the priority. Everything would be over if that spell was cast on them in this condition. Maybe, just maybe, if he could distract them, Sethron would have a second chance.
Airborne rushed past the first figure just as the mage finished his spell. This was it! The grip on the shield hardened as Airborne braced for impact. He had to take this one for the team. But as the runes from the mage’s hand disappeared the staff stopped glowing. He was now 4 meters from his opponent, but where was the spell?
Too late did he notice that his shadow disappeared as a light came down from above. Just as his shield reached the mage, he turned around towards the shocked faces of his allies, and as he saw a tear roll down the cheek of Mskonnan, he was hit by the full force of the spell.

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 - Spirits of the Elid, Contact, Dealing with Scabaras and Smoking Kills.
