In this issue we take a look into the lives of the great escaping chickens, Crunchy the "always willing to help" skeleton, a lesser demon called Carrot and even the King Black Dragon lurks here, too. Let's see what they have to say.
It seems to me that every time I come past you, you are always out of your enclosure. The gate is closed, but you are always on the outside. Anyway, since you're on the outside, why don't you just leave? Seek your fortune elsewhere? You've already miraculously taken the first step, which is getting out. So why don't you leave and find a place where you won't be killed for your feathers, meat, and bones?
Alas, this task was already undertaken, but whether the brave chicken was successful or not we do not know! For you see, old chicken legends speak of a strong chicken. One who was tormented, isolated, locked in his pen by our human captors, every day plotting revenge. He trained himself up using old logs for training dummies and eventually climbed the gate to freedom. No one knows the fate of this chicken. Perhaps he was slaughtered for feathers, meat and bones as most of us eventually are. Although, I often hear some adventurers speaking of a "strong evil chicken" terrorising warriors all over RuneScape...
My friends and I have recently been visiting you and your brothers (head #1 & head #3) in your humble abode. First I must apologize for taking part in your death several times over. Honestly, it was peer pressure. Ah, but I digress...
What I would like to ask you is this:
Do you and your brothers ever get mistaken for the legendary Three Stooges: Moe, Larry & Curly? If so, which of the three do you get confused with the most? I personally think it would be Moe.
We don't know what these "Stooges" are, do they taste good? We shall have to sample them some day, we miss so many delicacies trapped here in our cave. We once had gnome, you know, hardly filling but they have a unique texture which is really something to experience. Those were the days...when we could still slip out of here and roam free. We think it was all those funny little dwarves that did it though - they really can be very fattening - and now we're stuck in here.
We beg your pardon, we've wandered off topic. You mention our brothers? The three of us are more than brothers, we are like three sides of a coin. No morsel such as yourself could understand the bond we share. Ah, we do feel pity for our poor cousins with only the one mind, they must feel such loneliness.
Till next we eat, The King Black Dragon
Do you like being a skeleton? Is it fun to just stand there and hold a sign that says "High Detail"? How do you do it, I couldn't stand there forever and hold a sign. I think that it is really kind what you do for the entire world, without you we would have to go looking on the floor for the High Detail version of the game. I think that you are amazing in every way and even though most people don't use your button to play the game, I do and with out you I would have to play a less detailed version without sound (and I do like the sound very much). So, once again, thank you, oh kind skeleton that holds the high detail sign.
SpiderobertP.S. What is your real name and who is the person standing next to you?
My name is Crunchy I'll have you know! Do I like being a skeleton you ask? I was once an adventurer like you, slaying dragons, cutting trees, and fishing... until I was challenged to a duel by a POWERFUL mage, creator of worlds! I was too proud to pass up the challenge and was beaten. He plucked me from the world and made me stand here with this sign. I didn’t want to be the gate keeper for RuneScape, you know. They don’t even feed me, my room mate hasn’t had a shower in 3 years and my arms hurt...help!
I heard noises from your basement lately! I checked under the Guild Of Mages by my measure I have encountered seven zombies! Tired of the noise they make, I killed them all with my crumbling spell. The next night, I woke up and AGAIN heard the noise of walking bones...I didn't bother waking you up. So, where did the zombies from come? I've burnt their bones, and I don't see a portal anywhere near, except for the nothingess between the walks of your cage and the room of the red, tiny and evil chaos druids!
The mysterious wanderer,
Bow to the power of my magical zombies! The other Magic Guild wizards think I am crazy for summoning nothing but zombies over and over again. They do not understand the power which is contained. ZOMBIES! I cannot let you know the secret from which I summon my zombies, with no flint or fire, portal or doorway. Oh no, not yet, for it is far too dangerous...not yet. Although, I do apologise about the noise of my...walking bones; my pretty magical zombies. If you wish to file a complaint, I suggest you take it up with the zombies inside the cage...
I was just wondering, how many dyes have you made for people that need them? Don't you just hate it when people steal your cheese and tomatoes! If they could spawn faster, you could take them, sell them and be rich! Ha Ha Ha!
P.S. Evil Bob is behind you!
A devoted RuneScape player,
UGLY? You’re not exactly Queen Ellamaria yourself. How dare you! I look good for a witch. Better than that Hetty in Rimmington anyway. My cheese is no ordinary cheese. Its Aggie's Self-Replenishing Cheese spell version 12. *Cackle* Muhahaha. It was one of the first spells I learnt. The tomato is another spell experiment that went slightly wrong...I was actually trying to summon a lesser demon. Careful with those tomatoes, though: they do sometimes bite. They can protect me from that nuisance, Evil Bob. He is always sneaking up behind me. I should turn him into a rat, that’ll teach him. Hmmm *cackle* Muhahaha
I am writing you today with a very important question. As I was swept downstream by the waterfall I dragged myself up on land and noticed you looking right at me, it was then when I knew you could answer my question but I was so cold all I could to is mutter words that you did not understand. Now that I am warm by a fire in Edgeville, I am mailing you my question...
As I wander the world of Runescape the rivers stay still...
- Why do the rivers not flow? Are they frozen by some "EVIL"?
- How does trout live in water that doesn't flow?
Well, it's cooling down and the banks are closing soon, so I better post this and head home to Varrock before the "Tree Goblins" wake up...
I remember pulling you from the stream from where I was fishing and thinking "These trout look almost human. This be a strange catch for a fisherman, aye". As a born and bred fisherman I normally eat what I catch so I apologise for thinking about eating you with roast potatoes and freshly grown cabbage...mmm. Rivers frozen by evil, you say? HA! Well, by that theory that would make the trout evil, too? And the thought of an evil trout is far too amusing to be actual reality. What would it do? Drip on you? Aye, very evil indeed. Besides, there are rivers that flow. Take a look at the waterfall next time you are near.
I know this may come as a shock to you, but did you know that all the other dragons are out and about and roaming free, while they keep you imprisoned beneath the Heroes' Guild as sport for the many rangers in the world to take cheap shots all day? I say it is not fair that they have limited your ability to defend yourself, and that they have stripped away your draconic pride in such a fashion. Surely, if they allowed you to fight back with your breath, rangers would reconsider shaming you all day long by staying out of reach with their bows and arrows.
Even Elvarg, while still imprisoned like you, is given the ability to fight back against her foes. I say you should muster the energies of the dragonkin and break free from your chains! Make the world of RuneScape fear you once more, as they should...as a dragon - not some fish in a bucket.
Oh, and isn't it pointless to drop food for your killers when they are in no need of it, since they only range you anyway?
Help! I am so glad someone has finally noticed that I am stuck in here and all my dragon chums are out roaming RuneScape's lands. I’ve given up trying to escape now. I’ve been in here so long and that pesky Achietties installed a door I can’t fit through! But wait! Perhaps you are right. After all, I would very much like to seek revenge on all rangers who find it amusing to hide behind bars when fighting me. Cowards! *GROWL*
My dearest Carrot,
Why do you never speak to me? We have so much fun: I swing my rune two hander at you and you try to rend my flesh from my skelaton[sic], and every time you die you leave your ashes so that I may keep another small piece of you. You always give me a small gift of some coins or a steel full helm, that I treasure with everything that I am, yet when I speak to you you never respond, you put down my love poetry with your silence, and you never even use your better attacks on me. Is it because you think I'm weak? You use your fire breath on council members but not on me; why, I ask, why? Do you not love me? I know you do you must, I have gone through so much effort getting you swordfish and you turn them down and make me eat them in our little games. If you just accepted them they would be so much more fun. Please reply to me, oh beautiful Carrot.Undead Preis
I have to say, I'm rather suprised, Undead Preis. You come and kill me repetitively and steal the remains of my corpse and belongings, all the while hoping in twist of fate that I, your beautiful Carrot the lesser demon (yes demon!), Minion of Zamorak would appreciate poetry and gifts? I do believe you have been grossly misinformed about demons. Although I look forward to your next visit.
I always wondered a few things. First, why do you go around giving out those mystery boxes? You seem to be in a hurry when you do, almost as though you're afraid of the boxes, or dislike the fact that they mutiply so much.
I realise that the reason you have so many to give away is because the box multiplies so quickly, but where did you get the first box from in the first place?
I notice that sometimes you simply give out the gold, or small items that can be found in the mystery boxes; do you do that because you've already opened the mystery box? I also noticed that you seem to have a lot of connections with the mime and several other random event hosts, how do you stay connected to them, and why?And my last question... How old are you, Mysterious Old Man?
I am cursed to walk these lands with a box that duplicates in my bag. I need to get rid of these things as fast as I can. I found these boxes on my travels in the far Eastern lands, where the locals are known for their vast knowledge of trinkets and toys. I picked it up and couldn’t put it down - at that point I found the villagers are also excellent pranksters. After finding that the boxes were particularly troublesome, I went to seek help from friends such as The Mime. Unfortunately, the two of us couldn’t open them all, so I pass them off to unexpecting adventurers such as yourself.
