Audio Question from D Chibi Colts

Question from Doglvr36

Dear lovely hosts, I have just a couple simple questions for you this week.

The first, is directed to Shane. Is there ever going to be a integration with Forum ranks from Runewire?

Secondly, I have recently started my goal for a max cape, do you think either of you will try to max your accounts? I'm not going to be doing it "Harcore", meaning I'll still be doing bossing and other activity's I find entertaining, but I think the goal of a prestigious item like the max cape is a good goal to keep me motivated to play.

Question from Jmycenae

Dear Shane and Trekkie,

What is the status of the RSB&B Clan Citadel? I seem to recall that you started one, but then stopped using it due to lack of interest. Are you considering re-opening it after the recent clan citadel updates? If so, will you be accepting other members into the citadel?



Question from Darkinsea

Hey Shane, it's been a while, its ?Darkinsea?. My first question is how much have I missed in the last two years, I know its a lot, but just highlight the important info. I have recently come back from schooling (where I had there was no access to Runescape or your show). I'm am looking to get back in the game, so any encouragement may be useful. I've been playing since 2006 and listening to your show since 2009. Thanks and keep doing the fantastic show and I am planning to listen to the shows I have missed.

Question from Firering401
