RuneScape is a browser-based MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game); an online adventure game that players from around the world can enjoy simultaneously. As a browser-based game, any Internet-enabled computer can be used to play; there is no need to buy or download the game, because it runs directly from our website.
RuneScape is a fantasy MMORPG, set in the world of Gielinor. Although Gielinor is a fictional world, many aspects of the game world have echoes in real life. For example, players can develop their abilities in a number of skills, such as fishing, smithing or crafting. They can use these talents to complete a variety of exciting quests, battle monsters or get involved in the thriving RuneScape economy.
The RuneScape economy uses an in-game currency called 'GP'. Players can create items using the skills they have learnt or obtain items through their adventures, then trade items for GP. With GP, players can purchase a variety of in-game items in order to enhance their character and progress in the game.
All RuneScape players are capable of viewing our highly-popular forums; subscribing members (as well as free players that meet certain eligibility requirements) are also able to post messages. To become eligible, free players must have a total in-game level of 350.
While RuneScape is aimed at adult gamers, some younger players do enjoy the game. We encourage the parents of these younger players to supervise them while they play.
