Drop a gem on 'em.


We are a social, chat-based clan focused on account improvement and friendship, created on July 22nd, 2019 by four perfect strangers (two of them are still with us).

As your clan owner, my aim is to include everyone, regardless of creed, playing style, or skill level. The one thing we all have in common is a love for chat, a love for each other, and a love for RuneScape. It's easy to join a clan in any game and have your achievements get bogged down, and also to have your words and presence go entirely unnoticed if you don't chat much. TFJ would like to change that by looking at its members in a different light. Instead of feeling like a disposable Family Dishcloth in a large clan, we hope that you can feel like a Family Jewel when you're with us. If that all sounds good to you, why not give this gem of a clan a try?

Right now, we're accepting all active players, both F2P & P2P. We also currently have a weekly raffle for 10 million gold available to those who cap at our T6 clan citadel. Discord is available for extra fun, as well as clan announcements.



REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN

None at this time! Simply be an active player with basic respect and love for RS3.

RANKING SYSTEM


You have two ways to earn your ranks in TFJ. Either gain clan XP by training to the amounts listed below, or you can use
Treasure Points
(TP). Treasure Points are awarded to every member for gaining clan XP, attending/hosting events, or capping at the citadel. You don't have to do all three of these activities if you don't want to. Doing only one activity exclusively will still earn you your treasure!

Recruit
is the rank given by default when you join the clan.
Corporal
(50 treasure points)
is the rank given to members who accrue 50 million clan XP
Sergeant
(100 treasure points)
is the rank given to members who accrue 100 million clan XP.
Lieutenant
(250 treasure points)
is the rank given to members who accrue 250 million clan XP.
Captain
(500 treasure points)
is the rank given to members who accrue 500 million clan XP.
General
(1000 treasure points)
is the rank given to members who accrue 1 billion clan XP.

TREASURE POINTS


Now that you know about the ranking system we offer at TFJ, you can read below for some ways to accrue TPs. We give you quite a few choices and you don't have to do every single one of these if you don't want to! You can earn Treasure Points at your own pace.

1 MILLION XP
=
1 point


RECRUIT A FRIEND
=
3 points

(maximum of 9 points per week)


GIVE A CITADEL TOUR
=
4 points

(please ask us how to do this)


TAKE YOUR PIC IN FALADOR
=
3 points


ATTEND AN OFFICIAL EVENT
=
1 point

(maximum of 5 points per week)


HOST AN OFFICIAL EVENT
=
3 points

(maximum of 6 points per week)


FULL CAP AT CITADEL
=
10 points



What is an official event?
They are events hosted by (or with the approval of) staff members where one has the opportunity to earn TPs.

OUR GOLDEN RULES


TFJ is supposed to be a casual and fun space where you can be yourself. With that said, we do have some rules in place to keep the clan harmonious and safe for everyone to be in. Please read the rules and ensure you understand them before you join us. Those who show no regard for our clan rules will not be welcome in our family, and may be kicked temporarily or banned.

NO BEGGING

Whether it's gold or items, we don't tolerate members doing this. It's expected that you will work for your in-game assets yourself, and respect the boundaries of other players in this regard. This includes bribes.

NO HARASSMENT

Our members are human beings, and human beings have boundaries. If you're making inappropriate advances, jokes, or otherwise causing disrupt to another person, you will be warned once. If you cannot honour the boundaries of your fellow members, you'll be removed from the clan. If you are having a hard time getting along with another member, please take it to private chat, or message a member of staff and we can help you come to a mediation.

NO HATE SPEECH

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but there are some things that cross the line and turn an environment toxic. Blatant racism, homophobia, prejudice, extreme ideologies and the like will not be tolerated at TFJ. We are not a place to spread word of your beliefs, nor a place to inform others of what theirs should be. Take it to another forum.

NO SPAMMING

We get that you're really excited to chat with us! Try to keep your messages concise and literate, with the exception of a few moments of banter here and there. :P Flooding the chat line after line is a no-no.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We have a full-length FAQ available on our Discord server. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Is citadel work required?

It's entirely optional and isn't required, but it's appreciated very much since we're growing! There are benefits to capping at the citadel every week - a weekly 3% XP boost, and we add you into a weekly raffle for 10 million gold simply for taking time out of your day to help us out.

Do I have to chat?

Nope. You don't need to do anything you don't want to at TFJ. We love introverts, ambiverts, and extroverts all the same! Feel free to talk as much or as little as you like. Watch the chat box though, someone might be saying hello to you! :)

Does this clan do any PvM/bossing activities or events?

We are primarily a social clan and not PvM-focused due to the varying experience levels and playing styles of our members. Quite a few of us do EDs and bossing, but we may not be into all PvM content you're looking for. We encourage you to try and enjoy TFJ for what it is - a laid-back space to chat with other users while playing RS3. You can always ask if someone is up for some PvM or bossing in the clan chat, but remember that at any given time people might be busy doing their own thing. And that's okay.

What sorts of events do you put on for clan members?

TFJ has a couple of weekly events and activities for cash prizes, but everything other than that is pretty spontaneous and on-demand. What I've found as a clan owner is that having too many organised events going on can overwhelm the average player and place a tremendous amount of stress on organisers who already have full schedules. We'd like to keep it laid-back and peaceful around here. If you've got an idea for something we can put on for you though, I'd love to hear it, and we'll do our best to make it happen.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS CONT'D



Can I still join if I don't play everyday?

Hey, we get it, you've got a life! Keep it! Please keep in mind though that we do value clan activity over member count. To stand by this value, we do a monthly sweep of members who have not logged in or gained XP at all for at least 60 days. An exception is made to this rule if you've spoken with staff and let us know you will be gone longer than 2 months. We don't have a specific policy as to how often you should play the game. Just let us know if you're going on hiatus/quitting and when/if we can expect you back.

Can I join with my alt account?

Feel free to bring your alt accounts to TFJ. They will still be bound by the activity rule, however, and may be removed if you haven't logged into them for 2+ months. An exception is made to this rule for members of staff who need to have access to privileges on all their accounts. Please do not "park" your alts at TFJ if you aren't on staff.

Do I need to have Discord?

Nope, Discord is just part of the extra fun of being in a clan. It's beneficial for you to join so you get instant notifications regarding events and announcements. We also post up the weekly point totals there for everyone to look at and see their TP score.

Can I rejoin the clan if I've left?

If you miss your family, feel free to message one of the staff members first. We are not fond of clan hoppers however, so if you have a habit of leaving and coming back periodically, we might not honour your request after so many times.

Does TFJ have any staff or admin positions open?

At this time, I'm looking for a dedicated co-owner as well as a couple of Bronze Keys, but our admin positions are close to full. For more info on available positions, please read the next section.

STAFF JOB POSTINGS

If you think you'd like to be part of our growth, why not become part of our clan staff? Please send a message to Saint Marie to be considered for any of the positions listed below. We prefer applicants who are literate, active in chat, have prior experience in a clan leadership position, and log in at least a few times a week. Capping is mandatory to retain an Admin or Staff rank. You will also be given access to RSClanAdmin for tracking treasure points (TPs).


Senior Staff
(Silver Key)
I'm currently seeking new, experienced clan staff to join me in growing TFJ. This person is 130+ combat or higher, has interest in all areas of growing and maintaining a clan and has been active in the game for the past year or more. You must be fully literate in spoken and written English, helpful, kind, and with an easy-to-read/type username. Discord management, RSClanAdmin management, chat moderation, and conflict resolution experience is essential but I am happy to teach if you are willing to learn! North American time zone and a predictable schedule with a daily routine of playing RS3 is strongly preferred.


Recruitment Manager
(Bronze Key)
We welcome you to this owner role if you enjoy recruiting, showing new clanmates around, and if you can commit yourself to helping me bump this board here on the forums at least once a day. Bonus points if you like to get people started on caps at the citadel!


Chat Manager
(Bronze Key)
We welcome you to this owner role if you are someone who is emotionally mature, sensitive, active in chat, skilled in conflict resolution, and can remain neutral during a dispute between people. Previous Admin+ experience will be necessary.

STAFF JOB POSTINGS CONT'D


Newcomer Guide
(Seeking ASAP)
This is an Admin+ position responsible for aiding new and returning players who join our clan. Part of your job is to perform citadel tours for new recruits who aren't sure how clans work, as well as answering any questions they may have. You have a focus on account improvement, are knowledgeable about the game, and you have a "teacher" mindset. As with all our Admin+ positions, you will be given a trial run of 1-2 months to find a feel for this role.
