Now that I have talked about RuneScape, it is time to get into the most fun thing to do in the game, player versus player (pvp) or playing killing (pking). Before you try this, I must warn you, it does take some skill, not as much as it used to, but it still takes skill. Also be warned that there are people who will kill you with your best items on just so you can lose them. Yes there are sick, sadistic people who play this game. Once you start gaining money on RuneScape, and get bored of skilling, and have decent melee stats (attack, strength, and defense), you can try your luck player killing. This is where an extremely large part of the community spends time doing. You can actually get a rush off of this. You need to have money to buy many things. If you are a non-member, or free to play (f2p), you will need to buy things like weapons, food, potions, armors and or robes. For weapons, I would suggest purchasing a rune scimitar and either a rune battle-axe or a rune two-handed sword. The rune scimitar has and very good combination of both speed and power, use this to start a fight. A rune battle-axe is a weapon that is slower, but is more powerful, which makes this a good weapon to switch to when your opponent is almost dead. The rune two-handed sword is another good weapon to use to finish off your opponent, it is slower than the rune battle-axe but hits slightly higher. If you have a lot of money, I mean millions of extra gold coins, you could purchase a corrupt weapon. These are weapons that degrade and crumble to dust while wielding them; these weapons give you thirty minutes of wielding time to use them. The corrupt weapons are extremely powerful and should be used as a finishing weapon to save its time and your money. When you are at a fairly high combat level, which would be around level ninety and above, you should use food called swordfish and, if you know how to use these, anchovy pizza's. Food heals your life points and will help you defeat your enemies. Swordfish heal one-hundred forty life points, and are the highest healing one-bite food you can buy in free to play. The reason why I said you should only bring anchovy pizza's if you know how to use them is because there is a glitch with the pizza's. If you are very fast, you can click on a swordfish and then, within a second or two, click on a piece of anchovy pizza, you will be healed the one-hundred forty life points plus the additional sixty life points from the third of the anchovy pizza. The next thing you need to buy are potions. For non-members, there is only one type of potion you can use, a strength potion. This raises your strength level above your strength so you will be able to hit higher. Next on the list is armor, you can wear stronger armor when you raise defense. If you are going to attempt player killing, and worried about dying, I would suggest wearing the highest free to play armor you can wear and afford. The highest level free to play armor is rune, which you can wear at forty defense. This is a couple hundred thousand gold coins, which is not too much if you are worried about safety. An additional items you can wear to raise your defense bonuses are: amulets, gloves, boots, and capes. If you would like to have higher defense bonuses and do not care about getting higher attack bonuses you should purchase an amulet of defense. This provides plus ten to all of your defense bonuses and will help you survive longer. If you would like a mix of extra attack and defense bonuses, you would want to buy an amulet of power, this amulet gives you plus six to your attack and defense bonuses. If you are more aggressive and want to just have an amulet that helps you hit higher, you will want to buy an amulet of strength. These have been going up in price and will be very difficult to buy at times since the demand for them is so high. For the glove spot, you will want to either wear leather gloves, or if you have a forty ranged or higher, you can use green dragon hide vambraces. These are strongly recommended since they are cheap and give you very good defense bonuses. In the boots section, there are really only two types of boots for non-members. There are leather boots and fighter boots or colorful boots. Fighter boots and colorful boots are the exact same thing, they are just different colors and you pick them from a mini-game like thing. Leather boots are the recommended boots just because if you die with the fighter or colorful boots, you will lose them and have to change worlds to get them back. There are certain worlds designated only for certain things. When it comes to bounty worlds, you can only be right next to the wilderness, which is the only dangerous area in bounty worlds, or in the two banks that are provided for you. Now when it comes to the capes, there are a few options, but the only type I will talk about are team capes. When your number on your team cape is different from your opponents cape, you are able to attack him or her easier. When somebody is a higher level than you, you have to right click over them with your mouse to click on them, but if you have a team cape on, you can left click on even the highest leveled players! This concludes the player versus player intro, and free to play player killing tips.

This blog is about an online game called RuneScape. If you are not familiar with this game, it is a massively multi online role playing game (MMORPG). That means thousands upon thousands of people play this game. RuneScape is a planet that takes place in, what we would call, the medieval times. Although it would be taking place in the medieval times, people use science fiction type things like teleportation, magic, slaying dragons, and much more. In this game there are three main gods. Zamorak, the evil God who starts war throughout the land of Runescape. Saradomin, the peaceful God who blesses all who worship and fight in his name. The last God is Guthix, the God of balance, Guthix keeps balances the power and order between Saradomin and Zamorak. Guthix is more like my God, just, loving, and peaceful. Once you start this game, you will have chances to take on dangerous quests, safer quests, easy quests, or just go killing things. While you play, you have skills that you can train if you please, or just ignore the ones you do not enjoy. There are many skills to train including: attack, strength, defense, ranged, magic, prayer, constitution, rune crafting, fishing, cooking, woodcutting, fire making, fletching, and many more. While doing these skills, you will obtain items that you can trade for money. Money, of course, lets you buy things that you need, want, or just buy for the heck of buying. It would take me hours to go into detail of all of the skills, so I will just cover some of the basic skills. You start out with lever one in all stats except constitution (which is like hit points), where you start out at level ten. The basic money making skill is woodcutting. You start out cutting normal trees down until you get a level of fifteen woodcutting, by then you chop down oak trees. Once you chop down oak trees enough, you get to level thirty where you cut down willow trees. You cut these down until sixty woodcutting, and then you cut yews. There are many other types of trees, but These are the basic trees. If you are curious about the game Runescape, you can check out the website, copy and paste it in the url: www.runescape.com. If you do read this and join the game, add me on RuneScape for questions. My RuneScape name is Necrolord50.
Music is one of the most powerful forces in the world. For example, have you ever noticed how much music impacts a person? When you listen to songs that you loathe, you get aggravated, when you listen to songs you love, it can help you focus. When you are feeling depressed, music can cheer you up or make you feel worse. If you have lost someone close to you or have just gone through a messy break-up, there is music that can help you get through it. They is also music that is just about the things you are going through. I remember a few months before I wrote this, my friend invited me to go bowling with his mom, his mom's boyfriend, and himself. I tagged along, and for the two full games that we played, I bowled worse than I have bowled in my entire life. On the last frame of the last game, I turned on my iTouch and listened to a song from my favorite band, Anberlin. The first two balls I rolled down the lane, smashed all of the pins down for two strikes. The last throw I knocked down nine. It can not be just a coincidence that I start bowling unbelievably, the moment I start listening to one of my favorite songs from my favorite band. It is hard to fathom that music, that is always around us, is able to help humans like that. Just think about it.
If you are a professional wrestling fan (WWE, TNA, WSX, or any others) you probably get many people picking on you about it. You probably hear "Wrestling is gay, its just men in tights." Or "Why do you watch that fake garbage?" Well, I get that all the time, what is funny to me is some of the points you use to counter this. When a person says that wrestling is just men in tights, think of all the other sports that are just men in tights. Examples are: most Olympic sports, football, UFC, and others. The reaction I get every single time I point that out is, "Well that is different." Which it really is not... If somebody asks you why you watch fake fighting, ask them why they watch television. Obviously most television is fake, fictional characters, plots, fighting scenes, weapons, and people. Or you can use the case that it is impossible for it all to be fake, which is also a true statement. I use the example of one of the craziest World Wrestling Entertainment matches of all time. The Undertaker versus Mankind in a Hell in a Cell match. After the match is called off, Mankind was trying to get away from The Undertaker and climbs to the top of the twenty foot high steel cell. The Undertake, then, grabs Mankind and throws him off of the cell! A twenty foot fall onto five inch think padding. When I have used this statement, I have never gotten any type of rebuttal what so ever.
