Simply put, Swampletics is a Runescape personality who isn't able to trade with other gamers, store any items in the bank, or--and this is the real kicker--depart the swampy area of Morytania. Settled has to utilize the extremely limited resources available in RS Gold Morytania to progress, and he has to do it all on his own with just 28 stock spaces--as opposed to hundreds of bank slots--to work with. Settled's aim is to strengthen Swampletics to the stage that he can finish the Theater of Blood raid located within Morytania, which is no small effort even on a maxed-out character together with the best equipment without any limitations. You may think he'll just get a team of maxed personalities to carry him throughout the raid, but you would be wrong. Since Settled clarified in a recent video, his eventual raid team will have to coincide with the equipment and items he has on Swampletics, so the strength of his accounts is going to be the deciding factor in the ninja's achievement.

I've been after Old School Runescape for quite a very long time--hell, I've been following games for quite a long time--and I've never seen fan-made content capture fire in this way. Every single episode of the Swampletics series has over 300,000 viewpoints, and the most recent episode racked up over 200,000 viewpoints within nine hours. Settled's subscriber count has more than tripled--from 52,000 to 183,000--in 3 months and shift. The attach rate on Swampletics would embarrass The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I talk no hyperbole once I say everyone playing Old School Runescape now has watched or heard of Swampletics.

As a regular viewer of the show, it's not tough to see why it is caught on. Settled has created a customized game style that is both staggeringly prohibitive and exceptionally inventive. His trading, banking, and geographic constraints force him to explore every corner of Morytania and leverage unconventional, and often overlooked techniques so as to achieve things most players take for granted.

It took him a couple hours to hit 15 Agility, a level most players knock out in OSRS Buy Gold moments through quests, and that's only 1 example on a long list of chilling grinds. A small milestone for the average player is a huge achievement for Settled, and watching him experiment, gamble, and grind his way to success is utterly attractive, like a mix of Mythbusters and Survivorman filtered through one of the oldest and most nostalgic MMOs around.
