Five years ago today, I met a couple of friends for a drink in the pub. This was back in the days when there were jobs in the world and people earned wages. I'd just come from mine and it had been a particularly stressful experience, getting papers in order before the Christmas holiday. It took me a while to unwind. Not so my friends, who kept discussing some game that they were playing. It was great stress relief, I was told, I'd love it.
Like what teenagers play? Shooting people and stuff?
A game that adults play.
An on-line game that was just a bit of fun.
I came back from the pub and, after all of my e-mails were answered and on-line life updated, I decided to check out this game. It was called Runescape. Audina and Llandre67 were right, it was a great source of stress relief. Moreover, it reminded me a lot of the Glastonbury Festival. There you move from field to field in a voyage of discovery. No two areas are the same. There are always things to find and new delights to explore. I liked it a lot! I decided to stick around until I got bored.
That doesn't appear to have happened. In fact, I've been in Gielinor for so long now that people in Lumbridge know me by name. I bumped into my old friend Hans earlier and he commented on my longevity.
Happy 5th Runescape playing anniversary me! You can call me a veteran.
