Easter Event

I finally got around to it and really enjoyed it! I got some cool pix too!

"My patronus is a stag!!!!!"

A beautiful silvery Queen admires my lovely Stag, while I look on, looking totally out of place :P

Ehehehehehe my name is PEEKYFACE!!!!

This crown is FTW!!! Oh man I will wear it forever and ever!

I've been doing lots of real life. Next year is my "senior year" and I really need to step it up and get ready so that I actually graduate. Eeeek!

My most favorite part of real life right now, besides the fact that I am done with my silly music history paper and presentation, is that I am reading the Harry Potter series! I've read 1-4 and then lost interest but since going to Wizarding World of Harry Potter a few weeks ago I'm like *scrambles to read them all, savoring each detail* and loving it! I am also enjoying many many many recitals of my friends, now that we're old enough to be the ones having recitals. Plus socializing, which is always a good thing. Not much RS these days, but I'm making up for it in many wonderful ways.

Well, time to go for now! Good night all!

Until next time...

Potions Class With Professor Loch (A Narrative)

(I had some fun in the car narrating Isli Loch teaching Potions class in a Runescape style, so enjoy this narrative!)

Good morning class; once again welcome to Potions. Today brings us a new tier of potions to make so let us get started.

Super Strength
All right, everyone should have received a Kwuarm leaf from the tray when they entered the room. Line up and collect a vial and fill it three quarters with water and then have a seat.

Get out your pestle and mortar and tear up your Kwuarm leaf, adding a small amount of water from your vial, just like usual. Remember to never pound but gently grind the leaf until it is completely dissolved in the water.

Is everybody ready? Next, add the ground up leaf to the vial. Kwuarm leaf has a slightly sour taste but is pleasingly savory. I love the smell of Kwuarm! Okay, now break off a piece of root from the Limpwurt plant, about the length of your hand. Take out your knife and run the blade along the root, getting small pieces in your pestle and mortar. Once the whole root is in small pieces grind it up further until it is runny. No water is needed because the roots store lots of water on their own.

Okay now we're ready to combine the two. Gently take your knife and gather up the limpwurt root paste, putting it into your vial of dissolved Kwuarm. This reaction will give off heat so be cautious when gently shaking your vial, but it shouldn't be enough to unfasten the cork. It should fairly quickly turn white in color, if all goes well.

For a double Herblore master like myself this whole process should take about five minutes but as this is your first time it will take about a half an hour so you may begin and practice with some extra supplies if you wish.

This potion is used most oft in battle as it aids in strength. It has a flavor like that of Auren Kobhe (Cloaked Fruit [Banana]) with undertones of Nialli spice.

Saradomin Brew
Welcome, class. Today we will be making a very powerful potion dedicated and aligned to the Runescape god Saradomin. I trust that everyone has obtained and provided a nest, yes? It must be a mature nest that has been vacant for a long time; we don't want to intrude on active birds' nests. You can tell it's a mature nest if it contains a seed, egg, or ring inside. Remove this and feel free to keep, sell, or trade whatever it is it contains.

Good, now everyone take your Toadflax leaf that has been provided and once again using your pestle and mortar dissolve it in the water. Toadflax is a lovely dark green herb, almost black, and when properly dissolved in water it should turn gray.

Now that we have the Toadflax in the vial of water it is time to prepare the nest. It is not made so much out of twigs and will dissolve in water but we first must crush the fibres of it so that it will fit inside the small opening of the vial, so using your pestle and mortar crush your nest into something of a coarse to fine powder.

Now we're ready to add this to the gray mixture. The reaction will be cold and it should shortly turn a surprising shade of bright yellow. Be not alarmed, I do not know why it is such, but that's the way it's supposed to be. Give it some time to sit until the ice crystals inside melt and the potion will be completed.

This potion is extremely powerful. It raises your health in a way that will help withstand normally crushing and fatal blows and will also dramatically raise your defence. However, it will also cloud your perception and therefore make it much harder to attack with the sword as well as the bow or staff, and it will drastically lower your strength. For this reason, this potion is oft used in tandem with the Super Restore Potion which we learned to make last section.

Everyone get started on your practice and don't forget to read ahead in your books about the properties of Birds' Nest and get started on the next chapter about Weapon Poison.

End Of March Hiscores and Things

It's the end of day 3 of my tonsil experience and mannnnn does it hurt! My throat is insanely swollen and it makes eating ANYTHING hurt sooooo bad! The actual surgery site doesn't even hurt that bad but once I eat something the bruises all over the site start to troll my ears and make them feel like my eardrums have burst. I can't wait until the swelling goes down though and I can see what it's like to have a clear throat for the first time ever!

In the meantime I've been playing a little RS to keep my mind off the swollen mess of a throat I have and here are a couple pics:

This is way old news, but I finally wore out my Hati paws!

A pic of me with my Manicure that Peeky gave me for my birthday, with Nezantra posing in the background! :3

Yesterday I met up with Fred and was off to my Nech task when he found a star so I joined him. The other guy there, Sou da Jeeh, planted flowers around it making it the prettiest star ever!

Today I logged in to finish the nech task and accomplished my longtime goal of annoying pures with my flippers! XD Pie: 4... str noobs... 0!!

As you can see I exclaimed my winnings to my friend in PM. :P In retrospect, I should've made a hipster joke! Oh well I killed the conversation in a semi witty way and got the pleasure of pissing off the mainstream d boot luvrs so I'm happy. :smug: He was in an untrimmed str cape too, which was just icing on the cake. THIS is why I wear flippers into combat!

Oh yeah a highlight was getting a rune full helm (g) from a clue and selling it for like 500k! What is with people! It just has a gold plume...

Anyway yeah I've played less in March than I did in a day or 2 at the beginning of the year, so I can safely say that I beat my addiction! I'm super laggy now too, which is just further encouraging me to turn off the compy and go do stuff. I've only played this much this week because it's spring break and I really can't do much else because I have 2 burnt holes in my throat. I really can't wait for school to start back up so I have a change of scenery... I have so much crap to do by Friday also... ugh...

Anyway here's my hiscores:

90 Slayer ftw!! On the way to 90 str too which may or may not happen soon. I also got 91 con so I can assist effigies, which I'd be more keen on doing if every RS world that I use isn't full and spamming enter doesn't work! Cough. It seems like every server is full of spring break kids. Oh well, I don't mind! :P

My postings are few and far between now, which goes along with becoming an un-addict. Sorry about that for those who are entertained by me and I know there are many who loved reading my daily blog. I'll try to keep posting as much as I can until I figure out what to do with this blog. If you like my style then try reading my other blog (cough free advertising cough) and if you like hearing me go on about Runescape then there will surely be a post to follow... sometime... Anyways good night all! I gotta rest up to be on the mend!

Until next time...
