Meet muchoskill, the Runescape avatar who only has one life

Cursed by the gods

Nobody knows for sure which god is responsible, but people all over the world are starting to speculate that it might have been an agreement of all the gods with the exception of Guthix (being dead and all…) , to curse certain newborn avatars in Gielinor so that they only have a single life. When you die- that’s it. Good night, sayonara etc.

 

Meet muchoskill

MuchoSkill from Runescape Hardcore Ironman Challenge
Muchoskill is just one of many who have been cursed in such a way. There are so many poor souls currently inhabiting the world that the supreme ruler Jagex has been forced to create separate highscore tables for these people. Every day muchoskill wakes up and the first thought that runs through his thick Rastafarian head is “will I survive this day or will I die and be forgotten?

 

Every day he sees more and more strangers who share his fate get killed in the most horrific ways one can imagine and if you think THAT should be enough to break the average man, an eerie voice on top of it all will always break the silence and announce the death of another one.

 

The only thing left for muchoskill is to continue his progress towards enlightenment by gaining experience in the many skills and activities this world has to offer in the hopes to perhaps one day see the mind of God using all of his knowledge and to rival the Gods themselves by claiming immortality and maybe, just maybe even becoming a God himself.

The king of all zombie games is undoubtedly No More Room In Hell

No More Room In Hell

No More Room In Hell or simply NMRIH is an awesome zombie game where you and up to eight other players per server can experience first hand the horrors of a true zombie apocalypse. Do you have what it takes to survive and escape the nightmare of the walking dead?

Best of multiplayer zombie games

There’s really a big empty hole in the gaming industry when it comes to zombie games in general. Especially the ones with multiplayer capabilities. Don’t get me wrong, the Resident Evil series is a legend, but I think they kind of ruined the whole feel for the game after they dropped the adventure part of the game and turned it into a mindless first person shooter.

I don’t normally enjoy FPS games and No More Room In Hell does fall into that category, but because it has zombies and an awesome real life feel to it, not to mention the great teamwork possibilities that you would find in a realistic zombie apocalypse situation, it all adds up to a wonderful game.

Game modes

When the game starts you find yourself surrounded by up to eight other people per server. The goal is different in each server and it varies by the type of server you have joined. For example there are survival type servers and wave type servers.

In a survival type server there is a mission that needs to be completed and whoever survives through the whole thing will be rescued in the end. There is a possibility to get left behind if you’re not fast enough!

In a wave type server a horde of zombies called a “wave” starts attacking the area you are located in and your goal is to stop them from taking over your position. The waves get harder every time and ammunition is usually very limited so one must prioritize which type of weapons to use first and which ones to save for later.

It’s all about teamwork

It is possible to beat the survival type game without any help, but it is going to be extremely difficult. Most of the time, even with eight players who have decent skills, all die before they are able to escape or complete the mission.

What makes this game difficult to beat is the fact that there are literally an endless horde of zombies attacking the players at all times. Even though most of them are quite slow, they can easily surround you if you don’t plan your route carefully enough. This is where teamwork comes into play. It’s pretty much vital to have a few friends who keep the zombies away from you while you are trying to weld open a gate in order to escape for example. You just can’t do it alone!

Getting bitten even once could mean that you will die should you get infected. It doesn’t happen all the time when a zombie just scratches you, but odds are not in your favor. Fortunately there is a cure in the game… but of course it’s very rare and you probably won’t find it. So the best advice I can give you is don’t let them get too close.

In case you are infected other players might choose to shoot you on sight to prevent you from attacking them later on when you die and turn into one of the walking corpses yourself.

Zombie game like no other

It’s realistic. A bite or two and you are dead. An explosion too close to you and you are blinded for a few seconds with a ringing in your ears. Other people can shoot you just because… and the list goes on. If you’re brave enough to try and survive then you’re welcome to do it with me! Simply add me as a friend on Steam and let me know when you want to go for a little zombie killing rampage 😉

Runescape is the worlds most popular browser based MMORPG

What is Runescape?

Runescape is a browser based MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). It’s so popular that even the Guinness World Records recognizes it as the biggest, most updated and free MMORPG in the world. Unlike traditional games there is no need to download and install it in order to play. All you need is an internet connection, a modern web browser and a free account (your Runescape avatar).

Runescape is most popular mmorpgThe virtual journey of a lifetime

When you first enter the world of Runescape you have to go through a tutorial like in most games. It explains a lot how the game works and what your role in the game will be.

All the action takes place in a fictional medieval fantasy realm called Gielinor which is divided into different kingdoms, cities and regions. There is no main storyline for the game, instead every member can set their own personal goals and roam Gielinor freely. Of course there are certain areas that are only accessible after completing a quest.

The map is very huge with a lot of beautiful places ready to explore from the start. You can visit small towns and go shopping or spend your afternoon drinking beer at a local tavern. Or perhaps you prefer to spy on unicorns?

Mysteries to uncover

You would think that once a game has been created then everything is set in place for good, but in Runescape there are many mysteries left unsolved and new ones are piling up all the time. Not even the makers of the game know exactly what will be discovered a year from now!

Fortunately for us the Varrock museum with their savvy archeologist are constantly working on the important stuff like uncovering more and more about the ancient race called the Dragonkin. So far we know that they were an intelligent race that existed in the previous cycle of the Universe and a few have survived the big reset by hiding in the Abyss. What could they be plotting now?

The fate of Gielinor lies in your hands

The Runescape staff has just recently implemented a system that lets members vote on how the game should continue. For example when a new quest is in the making, a game-wide poll will be available for every member where they can give their individual vote on what they want to happen. This makes Runescape a game where all the major events are literally influenced by the players themselves.

The Sixth Age

The Sixth Age (present day) started when a god named Guthix was killed. The death of Guthix had a great impact on Gielinor because the Edicts of Guthix were no longer in effect. The Edicts of Guthix banished all the gods from Gielinor in order to protect it from any further destruction. Because of that we have already been visited by four different gods who want the power of Guthix that is now spread across the world. There are many battles ahead but one thing is certain- we cannot allow anyone to have such infinite power. The only thing we can do is pick a side when the gods come and hope for the best… or not pick a side at all and hope they simply destroy each other without doing irreversible damage to Gielinor.
