A little autobiography:
RuneScape! Discovered it back in 2001 when my family got a Compaq computer with Win98 last year. When I had internet with the old NetZero service (is that even around anymore?), I was just playing random games I could find online. Then I discovered a little game called Vertigo by this company called Jagex. I was intrigued by the little game and decided to check out their website where they were advertising this game called "RunScape", or at least that's what I called it because I didn't know what a "rune" was. Well whatever I called it, I checked it out and my life was change forever.
I stopped playing around RS2 was made official. Didn't care for the changes made to it and just couldn't get into it. I really liked the old 2D style of gameplay, even if it was rough around the edges, but hey, it was the early 2000s and it was a free game. What's to hate about that?
I was around the last leg of classic, when subscriptions were a brand new thing and they added dragons into the game for the first time, which was a big deal. I remember when PKing was removed but instead the wilderness took it's place. I remembered buying a red party hat for a 1000gp and then getting bored with it and selling it for 10gp at the store and a few seconds later someone snatching it up. Oh, if only I knew what that party hat would represent in the future. But it wouldn't matter nowadays. I doubt my old account, Bane2001, is still in the official RSC server. I'm sure it's long gone, but the memories of playing that game will forever retain with me.
But it's 16 years later and I don't have time to play games anymore as now I'm trying to make my own games to sell them. Out of nostalgia, I just looked up RuneScape classic and learned about this site and the fact that you can play it on your Android phone. I downloaded it and sure enough, RuneScape classic is back, but not on my PC on my phone. The problem of finding time to play the game is still around but if it's on my phone, then it'll make things much easier to find said time.
So here I am, The New Bane, ready to return to the game that inspired my own journey into making games.
But there's one thing that I must know: Can I access the membership only areas, which is like 90% of the game? As I said, I was around the time the subscription was a new thing and I recalled being aghast at the expansion of the map. It was HUGE and looking at it again, comparing it with the free area, it's still huge, but I was just a middle school/high school student with no money back then so I was still stuck on the free server. Oh please, tell me, can access these areas that were once blocked to me? It would mean a new experience if I can go to them now.
Subs here provide exp, batching, and afk timer boosts. You can access 'members' content for free.
As others have said the entire game can be played for free just fine.

Thanks for the welcome. I am very happy to know that the sub based areas are now open. My teenage self would be happy with glee. Though I'm still finding it hard to find time to play, I tend to play for a half an hour before I go to bed so if you're here in the east coast of the US, look for me around midnight.
Speaking of the game, so I played the game on my phone last night but I'll be honest. I love the idea of playing it on my phone but not with my finger. It's too big to be precise and I'm constantly struggling to choose the right option. Lost 20gp to Aggie because I accidentally choose the option to insult her due to my fingers being too big. I think I'm gonna hold on playing this game until I find a stylus to use. This game is very frustrating right now without precise controls. But still, Rune classic on my phone is excellent. It's just as it was all those years ago. I love it. Kudos to the team who brought this game back. I don't know how you did it but you guys are awesome.
