    I need some help or guidance with this situation from some parents or younger guy/gals that have some knowledge on this topic.

    Ok my kids play this game Runescape, I pay their monthly membership fees and in return they build links and create accounts etc for some of my local seo customers.

    Now they have approached me and want to do more work because they want to buy Gold in the game. I don't know shit about online games period!
    They said I need to pay at this site
    Code:
    http://www.pcgamerusa.com/RunescapeGold.aspx
    Is this the only place to buy gold??

    Then after payment got to go "meet up" with someone in the game to collect the gold! WTF

    Is this shit legit or what? This is sketchy as selling 30lbs of weed in the home depot parking lot.

    I don't mind paying if its all good and don't get ripped off

    It is against the ToS of the game, but fairly common practice. Some are scams, most are actually legit.

    There will be a lot of places selling so make sure they shop around.

    It's most likely legit. Most MMORPGS (runescape included) have chinese gold farming firms who make a living selling cheap gold to US/EU kids like yours.

    This is against the game's ToS but it's nearly impossible to police.

    I actually got my start making money online farming adena (gold) for a game called Lineage II.
    (course I had it automated ;) )

    If they want to put in the additional work to buy some gold and gain an advantage in their game, I wouldn't see a problem with it.

    Yeah, when I was younger I used to go on shit like this and its nothing but a waste of time. At first they will hate you if you prevent them playing, but eventually they won't even care about it any more.

    Trust me, these games are so unproductive. Get your kids outside playing or doing some other kind of school work or something...

    I played shit like this starting from 12 all the way through highschool.

    I used to go on speed binges and stay up grinding for 50-70 hrs just so I could be the hero in my little fantasy world.


    MMOS are addictive as hell, so monitor your kids closely.

    Thanks for the input ev1:) Will shop around for sure.

    @Unknown they are limited to "computer time" are are even more limited to "gaming" study's and school come first.
    If they want to make extra cash I give them a easy option which includes a little bit of learning.

    My daughter is going to jump into SE Nuke in the next little bit....should be fun and interesting ;)

    It's the crack of our generation. Looking at me you'd never expect me to be an MMO addict.

    I have a better solution to this, take your kids outside, and let them play there, basketball anything, I hear the membership is free, and the play time unlimited to the energy of the kid, :p

    Lol I used to buy gold all the time and never had a problem.

    But honestly, I'd get your kids off runescape. But that's just me.

    That game seriously ruined my life.

    Look, it's against game ToS but most of the time they wont research it and they can get away with it. About the trust of who are you buying from, you never know until you buy them once, check their rep at game-related forums. The meet is ingame, don't worry.

    Teach your kids how to make bots and running a business selling gold to other people.
