So I just got back to playing on Runescape after many years. I had multiple characters associated with one email. I got back on and could play them. and I had all of my old items and equipment for one of the characters that I was playing on. I was absent for 5 mins and it asked me to re-sign in and it would not let me do that unless I renamed my character. Unfortunately, I cannot get back onto my character that I was playing on before and now I am worried that all of my other characters are now gone.
Are my other characters gone?
Is there anyway to fix this or do I have to give up all of my years worth of playing and start over?
I have found some questions that are supplied by Jagex in their FAQ but none of them seem to fit my specific issue, that I can find.
