  1. Hey all, As you may have noticed, Sal's went offline last month. Our server crashed after years of being unmaintained () and we had some data corruption. Unfortunately, backups of the server and data broke at some point... which would have made the process so much easier! I was eventually able to recover the community data, but needed to rebuild the server, essentially from scratch. Apparently a lot changes in 6 years for web servers, so a lot of banging-head-against-keyboard ensued until I was finally able to get things into a good state. And... here we are! Apologies for the delay in getting things back up and running. Let me know if you have any questions! Cheers, Sal

  2. If you're looking for a place to connect with new players or reconnect with older community members, stop by the Sal's Realm Discord at THIS LINK. We have many old and new members of the community on this Discord, and not all are here on the forum. On the discord, we not only coordinate in-game events, we also stream them through the platform. If you are keen on showing off your singing voice, we have three voice chats ("Falador Park" "Varrock Square" and "Ardougne Tavern"). If you're looking for active in-game chats on RuneScape 3 and Old School RuneScape, visit the following-- RuneScape 3 -- the "Sals Realm" clan chat The official RuneScape 3 Sal's Realm clan chat. How to Join Click the community icon on the interface: Click the clan chat list icon: You should now see a list. On the bottom right, click the green dot (in between the orange and red dots). Click the speech bubble with a plus sign then type in "Sals Realm." You should now find yourself in the clan chat! From here, you can stay as a guest or ask for an invitation. If you are a guest, you will need to place three forward slashes ("///") to send your message to the chat. If you are a member of the clan, you only need two. Old School RuneScape -- the "Sals Realm" chat There's also an Old School clan chat. Special thanks to Heb0 for providing these instructions: You can join by navigating to the chats tab, then searching under the clans subtab for "Sals Realm". This will let you join the chat as a guest. You can join the clan one of two ways: 1. Ask a current member to turn "Invite Applications" on in the clan. If nobody is online, you can PM me or a deputy owner on discord. This is a world-specific action, so you will have to hop to their world or they to yours. You can then request to join via the clan settings menu, and they can then approve your application 2. Meet a current member on their world. They can use their clan banner on you to invite you to the clan. You must have "Accept Aid" on for this to work.

  3. Content of the episode aside, I think I would like to talk a bit about emotions. When I read the episode, it is easy to laugh and smile over the humor and memes, but I was caught off-guard over how I felt after reading it. There were two things that stood out to me in particular: The entire aspect of mental health, dissociation, and struggling to stay in control over your own mind, is something that hits far harder to me now, than when episode 41 was released. This is because mental health has become a constant in my life, partly due to work, partly due to people in my life that has developed mental health issues. Not to mention having had a stress-related crash about 4 years ago, where my brain went into slow-mode, and for a month, life was just... scarily limited. I think episode 42 portray the mental health aspects in a very genuine manner. When I read it, I could not help thinking about a couple of students I had that had memory gaps and disassociation frequently, to the point where they could not piece together where they were, when they had an episode. What they would say about their medication was something you nailed. Another thing that is hard to not feel emotional about is the entire nostalgia aspect of the episode. Half a life time ago, I joined Sal's, and it has given me so many memories, allowed me to meet so many fantastic people, and learn a myriad of things I would otherwise have been oblivious to. That pure joy of nostalgia hit me hard in that episode, because it was easy to think back to simpler days. I like how your writing naturally evolved through the episodes to start including additional layers and dimensions to your storytelling, beyond the obvious message(s). You have done quite a good job, Adam?.

  4. So the last time I wrote a proper blog entry was 3 years ago, in the middle of my working holiday in Canada. Since I'm nostalgia-ing away on Sals, might as well write this up before another 3 years pass! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity, I stayed for about a year working seasonal jobs, and went on some crazy ass adventures. I bought a minivan and inflatable mattress, and basically did a solo trip around USA's west coast living it up. Lots of hiking, eating, got some tattoos, sometimes meeting new people, but most of it was spent by myself. It was very chilled. Worked a summer job at a glacier. Long summer nights with new friends, spent floating around in our inflatable canoes on turquoise glacier-fed water. Went on a second USA roadtrip with these friends, about 8 of us split between two cars. One of the best and most stressful times of my life. Blowouts between friends, problems with the car, incredible sunsets over the grand canyon. I stuck with my friends that I made in my previous winter job (see 2nd last entry), and yes the girl, and we agreed to be exclusive eventually. It was really nice, but we always knew that it would be temporary. Still, we made the most out of our temporary relationship, and I wouldn't have had it differently. Recalling this Canada experience gives me extreme nostalgia, second to the nostalgia of Sals. There were no responsibilities, every day was a new adventure, spontaneity all the time, we were truly living in the present. When I eventually flew back home to Australia, I struggled. For a while. I remember distinctly returning back to my parents' house, and after all the 'welcome back's, I had a shower. It was the strangest feeling - like no time had passed at all, I was having a shower like I did every other day in that bathroom. I had changed, and nobody around me understood, because they weren't with me, and all the friends I made in Canada were gone. I went from the excitement of not knowing what would happen each day, to a life of routine and repetition. From spending a year sleeping next to someone in bed, to sleeping alone. I've always been a laid back person, and very fortunate to not be affected by mental illnesses throughout teenagehood. For the first time in my life, at age 21, I was quite severely depressed, and I didn't know what to do with myself. Every single day, it felt like I had this ball in my stomach, tortuously twisting and turning. I was desperate to get back the life I used to have, living without a care in the world, and doing whatever I wanted to, without consequence. I knew that I needed a change, so I moved out of my parents' house, got a full-time job in the industry I studied for, hit the gym hard, went on Tinder, basically tried to distract myself with anything and everything. Still the feeling didn't go away, and even now I can honestly say, that there's no way I could've lived with 'that feeling' inside me for the rest of my life. If somehow I knew that that was going to be forever, I would've ended it. I was getting involved with girls no good for me and exacerbated my depression, but I just needed to feel something. I went to therapy which was alright, but what got me through in the end was knowing that only time could heal what I was feeling. It was a bit of a process, but eventually made it. Fast forward to today at age 24, I have a great girlfriend who I'm pretty sure is my future wife, I bought an investment property over in Brisbane, and I have a well-paying job that I enjoy and have near-full autonomy over what I do day to day. Actually, tomorrow I'm getting a student assistant who will be helping me out, and at my age it's pretty unreal that I get to manage someone! Also just in general thinking about my life thus far, the adventures I've gone on and life experiences I've had, at 24 I'm pretty exhausted after all that and I'm ready to settle. God it feels weird to say that. I'm still so young! I'm very lucky to be in the position that I'm in now and I'm milking every second of my youth. Nowadays, I play league of legends (hardstuck gold), I've just started playing OSRS again, gyming, going out on the town, watching stuff on tv, catching up with friends. Sounds pretty boring and generic hobbies, but I'm genuinely very content with myself and life. Next blog post I'll probably be married with another couple houses and 10 kids!

  5. ... but men do, through the roads they walk." - Me just now, blatantly stealing from Fallout And my road changed, and took me away from this place I spent so much time in as a teen and a young man. How long as it been? Probably half a decade only, and yet it feels it's been so much longer. I came here out of nostalgia, answering a question my future fiancé asked me about how I learned my English. I immediately thought of RuneScape, but more specifically of Sal's and the good times I spent here. The fun people, the drama, the competitions. Man I did miss this place. I wonder who's still around or even remembers me? I used to be cool I think. At least that's how I prefer to remember my times here. But I can easily admit looking back without bias that I was also tremendously cringe at some points, and immature beyond words. I prefer to believe I had a positive impact in this community though, the same way the community impacted me. Hope you're all faring well, and remain safe in this time of crisis. With the pandemic and all. Stay well friends. Miss you.

Picked OSRS back up around 2 years ago now and have a 2000 total main and a 1575 iron with a new fire cape as of today.

  11. Druin (a young man named Jeffrey) passed by suicide the day this was posted. He had spent the last couple years of his life feeling extremely isolated as he came to grips with being gay and lacking supportive community. I was probably one of the last people he reached out to in the days before making his decision. I can't blame myself for it, nor do I think I could have talked him out of it, but even now I think of him a few times a month and strive to connect with my friends in the LGBT+ community. Often they need us more than we can ever know. Please, if you read this, reach out and say hi to someone who may be having a hard time. Do it in honor of Jeffrey, and in honor of the Jeffries around the world who desperately need it. I'm not going to promise you'll save a life, but you'll brighten one - and that is just what is needed sometimes.

  12. Oh my goodness! Look! Sobend got 99 Archaeology, the best of all the new skills! What do you know, Chaoss didn't know this skill existed until now! C'mon Chaoss, you're on the most active , most descriptive and frequently-visited update forum for Runescape - you should know this stuff by now! I bet you didn't know they came out with Sailing too! Sobend has 99 in that too! The next skill is about raising ponies. Sobend said he won't get 99 in that. That would be weird. I can't believe it though! Sobend got another 99! He's growing up so fast, next thing you know he'll have a max cap- wait, he has one??

  14. Yes, I apologize for speaking about another "rival" fan-site on this forum, but I thought I would post anyway. A little Sunday sacrilege is fit anywhere. As you all know by now, the traditional RuneScape fan-sites started to "die" sometime around 2010 or even earlier. I will not speculate on the reasons, but it happened with every site and every community, all of which were forum-based. New players stopped joining, current users stopped playing the game, and eventually people started going elsewhere, like Reddit. To me, the issue was mainly pronounced here with the lack of people playing the game, which became low in the 2010s, despite a core of that community still existing (and still existing now). This is particularly true for Runescape 3, where maybe 15 forum users were actively playing the game by the time of release. But activity did not wane uniformly across all fan-sites, and one was just active enough to be useful for Runescape 3 -- Tip.it. When I became an RS member in 2013, Tip.it had an active community of maybe one hundred or more active Runescape 3 players. This was by no means the glory days, but people would have conversations on the game, give bossing tips, and discuss updates at length. A lot of these players were also really good at the game -- a few I am tempted to name, but I decide against doing that because they did not know me, and I thought it might be strange for them . It was a nice place to have a "traditional" fansite community feel while still finding good discussion. Even then, I knew it was an anachronistic experience. I browsed Tip.it until I started losing interest in Runescape 3 in 2016. After coming back to Runescape 3 in the COVID-19 pandemic, I noticed everyone on that site disappeared. Unlike Sals, which always kept a pulse, it seems like Tip.it evaporated relatively quickly, in 2016-2018. Now nothing is discussed. I also checked out their friends chat this morning ("sc" or HYT) and found only one person in there besides me. It looks like the site was completely offline for some time until someone started paying for the servers again. Looking at the traditional fansites as a whole, it looks like they've all died except for Sals Realm, which mainly survives through the discord and in-game clans in Runescape 3 and Old School. Perhaps some others live on in one form or another, but I can't find their communities. Perhaps the issue is that all of these fansites based their communities on forums--a long-dying communication form--and their Runescape help website--eventually outclassed by the wiki, just like how Wikipedia outclassed all encyclopedias in popularity. I'm thankful that Sals Realm persists, though as I write this I am reminded that the Runescape 3 clan has had low activity lately, possibly because the game itself is slowly declining in numbers. Even back in the 2010s when I was browsing, people on Tip.it were complaining about how low activity was on their site. Looking back at their posts, I get a feeling that they did not understand what they had at that instant, which was something. Now there is nothing. One day we may also have that feeling about Sals Realm.

  15. Hey there everyone! Believe it or not, the site and forum have been living on the same sever for more than a decade! In computer years, that's like 100 million and 3 years, give or take a year or 2 million. Basically, the forum is being served by a Stegosaurus, or something like that. It also turns out that a comet is about to destroy the very part of the datacenter housing our server, so there's that tiny detail too. Anyways, the server is really, really old, and it's living in a really old building that's about to be demolished pretty soon. Seriously, this is all true, I promise! So, I've spent a lot of time building a new server environment elsewhere which should be easier to maintain and upgrade, and it should cost a lot less to run! It also seems to run a bit faster/smoother, and we'll have the benefit of running on all the latest and greatest server software! I'm planning on running the final part of the migration on Wednesday, 9/26, which is basically the part where the forum database is moved over to the new server. My plan is to take the board offline on Wednesday night, copy over the database, run the final maintenance steps, and then update the DNS to point to the new server. For you, this update should be completely painless, except for the fact that the forum will be offline for awhile (oh noes?). I'll update this topic when the work is complete! If you have questions, or just want to post pictures of your favorite dinosaurs to celebrate the life (and impending shutdown) of the old server, please do so in this topic! Cheers, Sal

  20. There is no reviving Sal's. Do you not get it? I killed the forum. I killed you all. There is no hope. There are no more heroes. All that remains are the mangled corpses beneath my feet, and the broken skulls shattered amongst the remains. You all failed. This is not a fairy tale where good triumphs over evil, nor could good ever amount for anything when it is championed by spineless fools. I have, and shall forevermore, reign supreme. That is the natural order of the universe. ----------------------------- On a less dramatic, and far more personal, note, I think it is time that we peer-pressure Adam? into coming out of retirement so he can finally finish his masterpiece. This brilliant story of a young and plucky hero, having to overcome being harrassed by so many cruel do-good'ers and ne'er-do-wells, and obtain his goal for Forum (and World!) domination deserves to be finished. Besides, I think few things are as monumentally meme-worthy and unifying to our community as Dragon Sal Z was. The decades of nostalgia, and our forgotten brothers and sisters, call out to you Adam?. They cry for a finish to laughs started, and stories left unfinished. You have made us wait for too long. Rise up and fulfill your destiny by finishing the story! ...If nothing more because you have at least one fan in me waiting patiently, even if I might not ever have said that out loud. I guess it is time to take off the gloves and say it, in the same manner that it is time for you to buckle down and finish your magnum opus.

  21. For years, I have thought about making such a list, writing a personal comment, but.. where the hell do one even begin? So many years. So many names. So many name-changes. So many memories. So many that are lost to time and the void of my goldfish-like memory. Sal's has changed my way in so many ways, some small, some absolutely life altering. At some point in time, this place will go down, and we will all leave a part of ourselves behind when it does. ...but until then, this is home away from home before I got my own home. You? You are my extremely dysfunctional family, and I love you all for it.

  27. Sent from my phone. I had hoped to send a picture of my second 99 - Attack. Unfortunately Sal’s Blogs uploaded refuses to recognize it as an acceptable picture; so I’m instead sending a screenshot of my favorite 99 skill: Magic. Not a very exciting entry, just something neat to have something today. Most of my PvP/PKing career I was a meleer. Mostly because in F2P melee had the clear advantage, and was the preferable combat method of the masses. However when it came to P2P, things were fortunately somewhat more balanced. Every combat class had its advantages and disadvantages. There is no denying Magic was super badass, and I became quite proficient at it. I cannot claim to be any better than your average P2P PvPer when it came to Ranged or Melee, but I took pride in being really good with Magic. Good times.

  28. 99 Magic is the most useless and terrible 99 there could ever be. I am not saying that because my own 99 Magic party was interrupted by a random event taking me to a jeopardy quiz, not at all. Congratulations though. Magic is just great in P2P, although beyond using it for Clan Wars, I never got much familiarity to it. Most of my P2P PvP came from being a Barrows pure just north of Edgeville, so... it was more about the SURPRISE DHAROK TO THE FACE. Magic was effective though, as there was always a numbskull ready to Ice Blitz or Barrage when you got a win.

It is used to heal a player for a certain percentage of the damage dealt to the target. A player using soulsplit has an overhead prayer with the icon you describe.

  41. Hi all, I know these boards are at a slow crawl, but I thought I'd see if any familiar faces ever lurked here. With Zybez dead, this is one of two forums (Tip.it) where we can browse old clan discussions/fights and potentially find each other. I hope each of you are doing well in your lives and still cherish the battles we had with and against each other. Today I opened Tempest, a community & F2P-based clan with tons of old clanners (including Sals greats such as Blade V1per, Slaughter17, Pker Nick PK & more) to take a more casual approach to the warring scene. That being said, I wanted this to be a bit of a smoke signal to old clanners looking for a place to scape (or even just to hang out in Discord) whether that's as a clan friend or a fully-armed warrer. Opening Thread Memberlist Discord Miss ya'll, stay safe during these crazy times.
