This list is copyright 2004 of LanceHeart.  All names and definitions are
copyright of Jagex.  Permission is given to LHG Domain (my website), RuneHQ
and GameFAQs to post my list.  For RuneHQ, they only have the right to add it 
to their monster and item databases in their information tables.  They can
only make it into a guide with my agreement stipulations.
The way I work to create this guide is becoming more and more painfully long.
With every new definition, a new entry must be retyped by me.  For the amout 
of time it takes me in order to finish everything, I'm thankful that I have 
the patience to do this.
I've examined each item in this definition list, furthering my claim that this
is list is accurate through first-hand experience and my own creation during
gameplay of this catalogue.  Since the game is ever-changing, it will never be
totally completed.
**                         HOW TO VIEW DEFINITIONS                          **
The definitions are viewed through a right-click command in RuneScape, where
you get the option that looks like this:  "Examine X".  When you examine it,
a definition appears.  This guide contains the most possible definitions I can
access within the game.

**                             Version History                              **

Version History goes from most recent to eldest log entry in the guide.

Version 0.3 - Total Work Time: 10 hours
I've added NPCs, some seem to have multiple definintions.  I've also updated
the other sections with all of the new items I've come across that were added
in the latest releases within the game.  In total I have over 50 new items
in the list, 30 new terrain definitions, and 15 more monsters.  Add that to
about 15 NPCs, I've done well over 100 new definitions in under two hours!

Version 0.2 - Total Work Time: 7 hours, 12 minutes
Second release, first one was rejected by GameFAQs so I added monster and
terrain definitions to broaden the horizons of my guide.  NPCs will be the
next part of the guide.

Version 0.1 - Total Work Time: 5 hours, 42 minutes
First release, I've done over 5 hours of work and I can sincerely say that
I've been able to make a guide that's quite extensive, albeit incomplete.
I expect to work on it much more soon.  Since I estimate over 150 items in
the list, I think I'm off to a very powerful start in RS2.
