About RuneScape

About RuneScape
RuneScape is a very popular multiple player virtual world, role playing game. Hundreds of thousands players from all the world play RuneScape online. Once you obtain an account you can play RuneScape too. The game is also known as Rune Scape.

RuneScape is a virtual reality game set in an era similar to the Middle Ages. In RuneScape you earn money through obtaining skills such as archery, crafting, smithing, and mining to name a few. You also fight battles against opponents. RuneScape is not a game that is played within a few days, weeks or months - RuneScape is more of a life adventure. RuneScape is a game that is different for everyone that plays because you create you own life in the virtual world and you select your own path. Players chat with other players online with RuneScape's chatting feature which is similar to other instant messengers.

Drawbacks About RuneScape

  • Chatting and RuneScape
    The chatting feature in RuneScape can be turned off but most players use it. Chatting is fun but remember to council your child about the dangers including not sharing personal information and never meeting people in person that they met online.
  • Scammers and RuneScape
    Scammers are in the RuneScape game. While trading, they can change the amount or the item quickly and trick you into paying more for an item than it is worth. You can easily report people for scamming.
  • Passwords and RuneScape
    Apparently there are some people that try to get your password to "steal" items in your account. Be sure to protect your password.
  • Foul Language and RuneScape
    RuneScape has a filter that blocks foul language but many people have gone around it by using alternative spellings.
  • Violence and RuneScape
    Part of the game is battling with weapons. RuneScape also involves magic. This game is not rated.
