Runescape

Runescape is one of the most popular MMORPGs (massive multiplayer online role-playing games). If you pay for a membership you get additional features. It does take a while to develop your character's skills to a level where you can enjoy all the benefits of the game. For example you can't go fighting against huge dragons until you have enough of hit points (life energy) and combat skills (defense and attack skill).

Once you start developing your character you'll quickly become addicted and want new skills and more gold to buy better weapons and other equipment. Almost anything can be sold for gold and the economy works pretty well.

Money is created when you sell something and it vanishes when items are destroyed or left on the ground long enough without anyone picking them up. If you harvest lumber or metals, you can create new items from them (and maybe sell them). It's obvious that there's some inflation (devaluation of currency) going on all the time because everyone is creating stuff quicker than it's been destroyed. Which means that the prices keep going up. If you buy a weapon today, it might be more expensive tomorrow. So if you make money, it's strongly suggested to use it quickly.

The world itself is huge. There are many servers and different areas to go to. You never know what adventures await you behind the next mountain. But there are some things to be aware of.

The graphics aren't nearly as good as in World Of Warcraft. It also requires quite a lot of computer and network speed. Then again, considering RS is a Java based game (runs on your web browser) it's pretty good. If you are looking for a role-playing game that you can play anywhere where you have a computer and an internet connection (such as school), Runescape is for you. You just login using a username and a password and continue where you last left off.
