I am doing sit-ups to get a demonic drill instructor who would like to get me tip-top shape so I can join his military corps. A long time back, this was one of RS Gold several arbitrary events concocted as a means to deal with the multitude of robots which set up shop in Old School RuneScape, back when it was plain RuneScape. They ceased being effective after a couple of months. 14 years when they ceased being useful, they persist.
"We kept them since the gamers quite liked them," states Mark Ogilvie, RuneScape design manager. "They're a part of the fabric of the universe." It is a familiar story in a game which exists because gamers voted for its own revival. Old School RuneScape was initially created to be a copy of the game as it was in 2007--an exact replica made to lure nostalgic adventurers. It is not a snapshot of the universe as it was, however, as it is still a living match with updates, added quests and even a brand new continent emerging. It is in a visually odd position, growing alongside its successor, RuneScape 3.
"These players, even when they log in the game, it is muscle memory. Everything is where they expect it to be, and the game plays the way that they remember. While all that nostalgia remains there in the new RuneScape, it is hidden behind this veil of updates. This seems like a different game." You might remember that there are rats in the kitchen cellar (obviously there are), together with a pursuit from the Duke's chef who will send you all over the surrounding area to discover ingredients for a cake.
Generally, Jagex generates content targeted at the average player level, so the majority of the low level quests were already considered old in Buy OSRS Gold 2007. They're also the most completed quests in the game, being the first things new players encounter, so it is even more important that they match players' memories of these.
