Storyline

RuneScape takes place in the world of Gielinor, a medieval fantasy realm divided into different kingdoms, regions, and cities. Players can travel throughout Gielinor via a number of methods including on foot, magical spells, or charter ships. Each region offers different types of monsters, resources, and quests to challenge players. The game’s fictional universe has also been explored through a tie-in video game on another of its maker’s websites, FunOrb, Armies of Gielinor, and the novels Betrayal at Falador Return to Canifis, and Legacy of Blood.

Players are represented in the game with customisable avatars. RuneScape does not follow a linear storyline; rather, players set their own goals and objectives. Players can choose to fight non-player character (NPC) monsters, complete quests, or increase their experience in the available skills. Players interact with each other through trading, chatting, or by participating in mini-games and activities, some of which are competitive or combative in nature, while others require cooperative or collaborative play.

The best part is you can use Runescape Gold  which is ingame currency used to buy weapons and upgrade the skills. During the combat, the players will have to defeat the monsters and the enemies and if during the combat, if the health level of the players comes down to zero, he or she will lose the battle. The monsters or the bosses shall also have of their own strengths and weaknesses knowing which the players would have to defeat them. You can even trade it with different players.

Gameplay

Players begin in a secluded area, where they are taken through a tutorial, a set path where they learn the most basic skills in RuneScape.After the tutorial, players have access to tutors and advisors located in the towns they explore, who can give players appropriate information about their respective skills.

Players set their own goals and objectives as they play the game. They can train their in-game skills, engage non-player character(NPC) monsters and other players in combat and complete quests at their discretion.Players interact with each other through trading, chatting or by participating in mini-games.

Combat

RuneScape features a semi-real-time combat system. Combat is an important aspect of the game, allowing players to defeat monsters to obtain dropped items or to complete quests. A combat level is an indicator of how powerful a player or NPC is in combat. For players, it is determined by applying a mathematical formula to their combat skills. Players engage in combat by clicking on the enemy they want their character to attack and will automatically continue fighting until they kill their opponent, die, or retreat from the fight. Most of the game’s weapons are medieval or fantastical in nature, and feature different strengths and weaknesses. Players may also summon a familiar to assist with combat, use special attacks called “abilities” to deal additional damage, and use potions and the Prayer skill to boost their combat prowess.

Player interaction

Players can interact with each other through trading, chatting, or by participating in mini-games and activities, some of which are competitive or combative in nature, while others require cooperative or collaborative play. Players can trade items and gold coins with each other, either through a face-to-face trade or by using a largely automated marketplace known as the Grand Exchange.

The chat system enables players to communicate with each other. Public Chat broadcasts text to players in the local area on one server, both by text appearing above the speaker’s head and in the message box. Friends Chat broadcasts text in the message box only to certain players tuned into a specific channel, who can be available on any RuneScape world. Each Friends Chat channel has an owner, who can assign different ranks to individual players; players’ ranks dictate their ability to perform administrative tasks within the channel. Clan Chat allows members of a clan to communicate with each other through a separate channel. Quick Chat allows players to choose from a list of predetermined messages to send as Public Chat, Clan Chat, or Friends Chat

Up to you

Without any doubt, as a game, the RuneScape Gold has the largest community and set of forums that has been provided by the Jagex on its official website. The players here can interact and create an enjoyable and memorable experience with each other in the form of Skype or Discord or just chat or can participate in mini-games and through other IP services. There also exists a ‘Clan chat’ which allows members of a clan to communicate with each other through a separate channel. Because the game is an open world game, it doesn’t seem like violent or a bit offensive to some communities like some other games currently on the platform.
