RuneScape was founded in 2001. It is free to anyone over the age of 13, although players have to pay £5 a month if they want more conquests and skills. It is a medieval fantasy game which has more than 200 million players worldwide. It revolves around collecting gold coins which characters can use to buy magic potions, spells and weapons in a world of dungeons and dragons. Players may take years to accrue wealth and skills through a series of challenges from fighting goblins to activities such as fishing, farming and mining.
