I'm not fond of those kind of deals, but usually the hook isn't something I want. This, on the other hand, sounded way cool. Didn't just want it, I needed it. Looked to see where the cards are available. Ordinarily Monique and I just pay online. Since we've been members for about 8 years now, our monthly dues are about $5.00 each. Not too bad for all the time we play.
There were three places that might work. Gamestop, Wal-Mart, and Target. All are local. Today Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer came out, and after the showing at 4:30, it was time to hunt cards. Theater and Gamestop are both in the mall, so a quick visit there was up first. They had 30-day cards, but I didn't think 3 of those would count the same as a 90-day gift card.
Next stop was Wal-Mart. Had to do a bit of digging around, but common sense and luck led me to them. Weren't many on the peg, maybe 3 plus one that was all dinged up. That's okay... All I needed were 2! Together, they came to $45. But that's okay, it was money we would have spent anyway, since we always keep our memberships up to date.
Got home, redeemed our gift cards, logged in... and found a Flaming Skull in the bank.
|Flaming Skull and Standing in a Fire... Looks like a spirit of vengeance!|
Yes, it's useless. I didn't have to accomplish anything in-game to earn it. Though I did have to go on a real-world quest to obtain mine!! But doggone, it just looks cool. You can change the color any time to blue, green, or purple, and back to red. When you move, you leave colored flame trails. And it makes you look like Ghost Rider... maybe next time around Jagex will offer a flaming motorcycle. :^)
