While Jagex will be providing us with a perfect reconstruction of the content as it was in 2007, it is up to us players, the community, to ensure an accurate representation of the game. In this thread I will detail various Dos and Don’ts of how to behave, communicate and interact with your fellow players in this remake, and thus bring to life the long dead specimen that is the 2007 community.

1) “Noob” is to be restored to its position as the highest insult available.

2) The threat of being reported is the utmost threat one can make.

3) Castlewars must be packed in all worlds, with everyone at all times spamming “@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@” or variants thereof.

4) Should one notice a player that has transformed into a bunny, imp or sheep in Castlewars, you must follow and enquire as to how to become a bunny/imp/sheep. The bunny/imp/sheep is entitled to relish their position as “the balls” and may make humourous quips as they please.

5) Catherby fishing spots are to be a forum for only the finest banter one can produce, be this singing, discussing the current Champion’s League game or any recent topical news story.

6) Should one wish to bot (shame on you!), one must subscribe to the required Botter’s look: bald with a goatee, and green shirt/ trousers.

7) Should one wish to scam (shame on you!), there are a number of scams available: popular scams involve removing an item before clicking accept, free gem cutting and free armour trimming.

8) New players are fully entitled to follow around anyone of a higher level around and demand “Free stuff plz” or variants thereof.

9) Whichever server is elected to be the trading server must be full at all times, and falador gardens must be packed to the point that the FPS makes the game resemble a slide show.

10) All high levels are to be referred to as a “PC prod”.

11) The fornication-deprived amongst us may advertise their desire for a mate through means such as “Looking for gf” or “Press 123 to be my gf”.

12) The females/gender-confused males amongst our community may utilise the above advertisements as a means to acquire free stuff.

13) The price of unids (unidentified herbs, what later became grimy herbs) is 1k each and not a penny less.

14) Those who wear chainmail may be openly mocked (see rule #1) and/or stoned as they are inferior in every way to the plate armour wearers.

15) The Fremennik Trials quest requires a raw shark for completion. Nobody may happen to have one lying around their bank, and must therefore be seen standing in Catherby bank requesting to buy one for a minimum of 5k.

16) Each bank must have a minimum of one player advertising a bank sale.

17) If one grows tired of reciting the same trade offer over and over, one may add new life to their offer using devices such as “glow”, “wave” and “flash”.

18) If one sees another player advertising as above, they may ask how they did it, many times.

19) If one should happen to fail in the production of a trade advert as per rule #17, they may be openly mocked and/or stoned.

20) Every world must have at least one player teleporting to Camelot, over and over again.

21) Should one be attempting to sell an item, it is NOT acceptable to set the price as “offer”.

22) If one is attempting to buy a dragon chain (RRP 30m) or similarly expensive item, one must expect to be inundated with trade offers asking to see the cash stack.

23) In an argument one is fully entitled to brag about their level 150 main. That, or one may claim to be Zezima.

24) One may earn a respectable profit by stealing from the silk stall in Ardougne, however one must be wary to wait the appropriate length of time before one sells it back to the stall owner.This may be accompanied with a quip regarding the stall owner’s stupidity.
