Oh how I wish I could talk to you guys again, my life never continued the sanme without you. Currently I'm unavailable to play either the 2014 or 2007 version of RS due to lack of a computer, but I wish I could join you guys for one final gathering before TGNP is left in the dust of time. More like a reuinion than a reinstatement, but I wish I had time and energy to remake the whole community from scratch. Skelly would have wanted that. Also Rain/ironycold (missy), I miss your poems :3 And Ubs, I miss our hunting trips together, and the rest of you I miss for your awesome effort in donation events and alike.
This thread doesn't deserve to die quite yet, for the sake of TGNP's prime time I wish someone would see this and come post again. I will continue to the check this thread regulary if there's any sign of life from you guys. I truly miss you and I wish you the best in life.
TGNP forever, Capn Evan.

Nice to see you post again! I got a brand new computer now, and tomorrow my winter holidays will start. I will probably play a bit every day (not as much as I used to though, I need my family quality time )Cheese and potatoes,Capn Evan, eternal TGNP fan.

I think a reinstatement of TGNP will be hard to do, especially since most of our members have grown up, gotten jobs or studies to attend. I guess it was easier to do back when we had nothing but a little homework to worry about. But it's still possible, and I love Runescape very much.
I think that if we were to do one last event, for instance, we should do it in 2007-scape. That version of the game needs our help more than the current version, who practically lies everything in your lap.
I hope other people will show up and state their interest in this, we should do it sometime this spring if we get like 5+ people or so. I'll keep checking back here for more people.
I've played quite alot (I have lvl 72 combat with low range and 52 prayer), but my farming level is really bad, and I don't have dragon equipment yet (lazy quest-doer).
I've been trying to tutor folks in OsRS for a while now, but it seems most players are very experienced and are just jumping from the new to the old servers, I think this is due to it only being members, preventing new people from joining.
Anyway, I give people a few advanced tips about how OsRS community works now (like Varrock trading, pvp world and everything in between.) It seems they are very happy with that (although some are rather ungrateful tbh, but that's OK).
I have to go now, but I'll keep checking back here.
So, free to play Old school will bring a lot of new players to play it, I'm positive. So it will be imperative that those of us who have a chance strike while the oven is hot!
I was thinking of creating a new thread for TGNP in the old school forums, and we can see if there's any interest for re-creating the community in OSRS.
As we all know, the tutorial is hearty to those with nostalgia, but it doesn't really learn you how to play the game, other than very basic stuff.
So we're going to do that, by starting the new player helping project, TGNP, up again in the old version of the game! I'm sure there'll be plenty of work for us there. I hope you will join me, until then, I will release the thread on the same day F2P comes out.
Cheese and onions, Capn Evan, TGNP forever.

I'm going to wait until f2p gets released for real before restarting it, maybe we can get in touch with more of the old people too if we wait. Of course I've already established contact with a few people who are interested in joining if we start up again, but I've told them the same thing - we're waiting for true f2p to come out.
Hey guys! I'm hosting a TGNP event this very Thursday, in case you're still checking in on the thread. I promised I'd wait for true F2P to come out before I did anything, and it seems that will come true now! Hooray! So yeah, if anyone wanna drop in, I made "TGNP Nation" cc for us. PM me ingame and I will add you with your ranks as they were in this post. Hope anyone reads this.
Hey Aarox, the event wasn't a big success as I was the only one arranging it, but I did get to share some starter kits (Mod Ronan gave me a kit spawner), and that was good fun for people. It does seem people who play Old School have a firmer grasp on how the game works today, even if they're completely new, but I did manage to point out some P2P tips to new players who wanted to become members in the future.
I think our role might have changed a bit, but I do believe TGNP as an idea is not dead. We still can do our classic donation events, people always appreciate getting lobsters and arrows and full iron sets when they make a new account. Also, we can also guide people into new content, and I think big updates such as Zeah coming up, we can expect to be useful again pretty soon.
TGNP... It's like one of those things where you can truly use the quote "came for the gameplay, stayed for the community". In the end that's what we were. Basically as we got busier IRL we had less and less events and more and more chatting in the CC. But that's fine, at least we got to be a part of a JMod-supported event group for a long time. We were at one point almost as big as Equinox, and that makes me proud to have been a part of it.
For the future, I think I want to wait and see if we can get in touch with people from the old days, who I barely remember still. Skelly, Blood, Venus and Rainstar/Ironycold (Missy), Aaroxmaster, Ubs and lots of others. If you read this thread again, stick around, check it every so often, and I will reply here after a while.
Cheese and onions, Cap* Evan, still a fan of *GNP.
Eyyy, nice to see you guys again hehe I've started to play RS3 again, and I got my friend into it too. God, the nostalgia of reading this thread over again... I hope we can meet up at Runefest sometime. I'll consider going if some of you also agree to go.
Cheese and onions, as always.
