A Quick Word
Hello people, I am new here. I've read the "Please, Please, PLEASE don't just plug in your website." and would just like to say that I will not be one of those people who just post a link and leave. I will be trying my best to be somewhat active on these forums.
I'm not sure if I'm posting this thread in the correct section, or if I'm allowed to have links in this thread. So if I'm breaking any rules, please let me know. I don't want to be one of those annoying people that just comes to a forum and does what ever they want, I have respect for the community.
What is RS-Reborn/About RS-Reborn
Some of you may already know or have heard of the MMORPG RuneScape. For those of you that haven't, here is a passage from Wikipedia: "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.".
So now that you have an understanding of the game-play style of RuneScape, lets get to what RS-Reborn actually is. RS-Reborn is a project that I started back in late April. Our goal is to recreate RuneScape as it was during May 15, 2006, our cutoff date being May 16, 2006 (anything added on this date of after will not be apart of RS-Reborn). Since we're recreating a game from 2006, it'll have a very retro feel and look to it. This is awesome for those who want that good ol' nostalgic and childhood gaming experience.
RS-Reborn is completely none-profit, therefore the game is completely free of charge! Although the downside is that we rely purely on donations to keep the project up and running. To show our appreciation to the people who've donated to RS-Reborn, you'll receive the following (as of September 13, 2014):
A cyan "Donator" title on the forums
100 extra friends and ignores slots (none-donators will have 100 friends and ignores slots)
Extra bank slots
Access to any testing stages, unless it's strictly administrators only
Access to basic BB code on the forums

Below you can view the content list which contains a list of any major content that's not yet added, being worked on, or has been completed. The list will not contain the small features of the game as it'd be to bid, though we'll most likely have images of them (over time).
