That might actually be a lorefail because in the Lore Fc years ago the mod behind Diamond in the rough was talking about how the point when the demigods originated wasn't a certain thing and most of their "history" is myth and folk lore. It is possible as that was a dev talking and you are referencing actual ingame content that things simply went a different direction in the end but the dev was talking after those things were in game so I think if anything they were overlooked.


If it's a lorefail, it would require entirely rewriting the quest Do No Evil as the entire premise requires Senliten to know about Apmekan.

I'd much rather believe that it is not, and that the minor Desert Gods were created some time prior to Tumeken's self destruction. Given the apparent absence of gods other than Guthix or Seren being active during the 1st age, this would place Tumeken's creation of the aspects likely during the 2nd age. On the other hand, it is entirely possible that Tumeken and Elidinis created the other desert gods (including Icthlarin and Amascut) prior to them ever actually coming to Gielinor (during or prior to the 1st age).


It would only require rewriting Sen's dialogue at the start. It could easily be changed to something along the lines of "I heard about some blah blah" or "One curious development that has reached my ears" ect ect.

Either way it doesn't make a huge difference because they are all still aspects of Tumeken. I simply personally think that quest may contain a lorefail.

Sen's a mummy. Outside of Leela and you, who's she going to be talking to?

Plus, you'd run into the issue of, you know, Senliten finding this information important when she'd have little concept of the minor gods importance, having existed in a time where they didn't exist.

You'd also still have the statues in her tomb (which was built during her life) and her dialogue about Scabaras (both in the quest and in her regular dialogue).

So yeah, I don't think its a lorefail, nor do I think that there's much reason to even want it to be a lorefail.

Leela is a spy and not some low rank nobody either, her dad runs the whole network. And I'm pretty sure given that Senn came from an era where Gods walks amongst people and literally blew shit up from time to time if anything she would have a greater appreciation for any info about them. Also it is information related to the god she follows.

But once again... this is just my personal opinion and not relevant at all to the topic at hand because it doesn't change the end result.
