I am going to be honest with you, when I read your post I expected to look and see that you were from a non-English speaking country, only to find you were from Oregon. Come on, were you just not trying at all, or did you lie about being in high school and you are really 4?

Anyways, sure a game like Runescape is possible, no it is not illegal if you do not steal any of their assets or content. At the time Java is your only really option for making interactive, and 3D, browser based games.

Good luck! Be warned though, RPGs are the hardest type of game to create.

jmonkeyengine is a very powerful engine and well, probably out of your range in accessibility because it does not in the least hold you by your hands in the development of a game. Take a look at something like Game Maker (which is free, by the way) and spend some time creating games and learning its built in scripting system. Or, as an alternative, try something like the Unreal engine and create your own mutators. Starting small like this allows you to succeed easier, thus fueling a drive to hit your own next milestone.

A game like Runescape, well, takes a lot of people a lot of time. No, one person by himself is not going to be able to do it within any sort of feasible time. Spend some time learning to program or create art assets and then work on assembling a team of people. Learn to walk before you try to run, or you'll fall flat on your face [wink]

You have to program all of this. You admit not knowing any computer languages (which translates to you not having any experience in programming). Set aside the idea of programming a game for now (because you can’t, errr, program), and focus on learning the craft.

You're looking to far ahead. If you want to accomplish that someday, start out small. Start learning Java now.
