A.D. is the abbreviated form of Anno Domini (Latin for "Year of the Lord"), and commonly used in the English-speaking world. The AD epoch begins with the year traditionally designated as that of the birth of Jesus Christ. Adric refers to this dating method when he informs Tegan that the TARDIS had arrived in the year, "2526 in the time scale you call Anno Domini." (DW: Earthshock)
The Achievement Diaries contain a list of cities and regions in RuneScape each having three sets of tasks to complete. The first diary was released on 8 May 2007. With the exception of the Lumbridge diary, the achievement diaries are for members only, as many tasks involve members' skills or quests.
To start a Diary, players will need to talk to the NPC found near the Achievement Diary icon on the minimap. To access the Achievement Diary journal, players should click on the green star icon in their interface. Doing this will bring up a list of cities each with available tasks, broken down into three categories, from the easiest to the hardest tasks.
The cities outlined within the Achievement Diary are colour-coded the same way as quests in the Quest List.
Once a task level under a city is selected, the task journal is displayed showing a list of tasks required to complete that level.
When a task is completed, players will be informed in the Chat interface, and that particular task will be struck out in the journal. Once all tasks in a category are completed, the heading (e.g., "Easy") will turn green.
Players completing all tasks in a particular category (e.g., Easy tasks) will be rewarded with experience lamps and other benefits available only to those who have completed the tasks. All level 1 tasks also reward the player with a wearable item with special properties and completing level 2 and level 3 tasks will upgrade the item (requires the player to have the item in their inventory to upgrade it).
The easiest tasks usually do not require any skill levels to complete, but the hardest tasks usually require high levels in a particular skill and/or in-depth knowledge of a particular area within RuneScape, such as TzHaar Fight Caves.
