Reposted from the Gold Premier 2017 forum...

Q: I recall reading an old statement about Tuska still having anima that she absorbed from other worlds in her, which is why after she was killed, she didn't turn to stone. Is this correct? Also, is the anima that she absorbed now part of Gielinor?
Mod Chaose: This is indeed what we have said in the past. The vast anima resource in Tuska's body is slowly leaking out into Gielinor, but probably won't be expended within the player's lifetime.


Q: In lore, what are the Godless doing right now? I'd like to think they are hidden without revealing who they are and would be scouting around different areas, and interfering in minor faction events unseen by us, because we are busy with other things.
Mod Jack: Regrouping, trying to figure out what to do, searching for ways to accomplish their goals in a world filled with terrifyingly dangerous gods.


Q: We visit the Abyss in Shattered Worlds. Is the skybox there what the Abyss looks like outside of those we visit already in-game?
Mod Chaose: The Abyss, as seen via the Runecrafting rifts & fairy ring portal, and that seen in Shattered Worlds are two distinct areas. There's a reason they look so very different, which you might find out in the future.


Q: Could there have been more Guardians of Guthix in the past that we are unaware of who either died in the God Wars or suffered some other unknown fate?
Mod Jack: Yes, definitely.


Q: Anything you can tell us about the Fourth Age that we might not know? An interesting fact or ugly truth?
Mod Jack: There were other, lost civilisations you've never heard of before.

Q: To what extent are dwarves unable to use magic? Can they use enchanted jewellery/spell tablets, craft runes, etc.?
Mod Chaose: Dwarves are reticent to use any magic at all in the modern day, lest they risk being corrupted into Chaos Dwarves. The Imcando dwarves are able to freely use magic, though there doesn't appear to be many of them left to ask about it.


Q: Are other types of runes possible seeing as we have Armadyl runes and combination runes? Can shadow, ice, light runes, etc. exist?
Mod Choase: As you suggest, Armadyl runes are an example of runes augmented with magical energies other than what is relatively easily accessible, air energy in this case. As many entities can use magic without the need of runes its feasible there are other combinations.


Q: Will there be more follow up quests on the Dragonkin now that the SOJ is gone? If so what will the plot points be? I.E. avenging V killing Sakirth? obtaining the Mirror?
Mod Raven: Yes there will be follow up content with the dragonkin following the results of their actions in Endgame. There are a number of issues, both old and new, to resolve with the dragonkin as a result of Endgame, but to give you all the details now would be rather too much of a spoiler.


Q: Does Queen of Ashes have a name-name, not just an honorific?
Mod Raven: Yes


Q: Did Freneskae ever have its own version of Death? Do Seren or Zaros know about them? Where is this “Death” now?
Mod Raven: Each world has its own death, just as each world has its own afterlife. However, Freneskae's inhabitants are all partially divine due to coming from the dreams of Mah. As such, they are denied an afterlife, which means that Freneskae in particular likely has no Death.

Q: Are there any morally “good” Zamorakian Heroes? Can you throw out some names? (Camorra?)
Mod Raven: Good is a very subjective point of view. To the liberated avernics, there are heroes amongst them that they consider good. Kril, for example, is certainly going to think of himself as good and the avernics would agree. There are a few humanoid Zamorakians that likely consider themselves good as well.


Q: Since Elven language is based on Welsh and Zarosian is Latin-based, what language did you used for the Icyenic language?
Mod Raven: Ancient greek is largely the source of our Icyenic language.


Q: Vorago had stated that he regrets not interfering with Armadyl's and Bandos' battle, what reason did he have for not interfering? Also why did he not interfere with Saradomin's and Zamorak's battle?
Mod Raven: At the time he didn't feel that what the gods were doing warranted his intervention. Think of Vorago as a last resort. He considers himself the ultimate weapon in the anima's defence. It wasn't until the last moment, when the weapon was unleashed, that Vorago really understood the immensity of what the gods had done. For Saradomin and Zamorak, their battle was at least mostly contained to a smaller area.


Q: How much is Shatter Worlds tied into the current Lore of the game ?. will there be a update in the future that deals with the worlds that we cleared in Shatter worlds ?.
Mod Chaose: If you haven't spoken to Kenton Decarte in the staging area, that'd be a good place to start. Upon reclaiming the anima from each world and closing the portal the knights are stunting the growth of the abyssal creatures. They are taking preventative measures here, so that another Void Knight vs Pest situation doesn't occur.


Q: Will we ever get to see what a thingummywut looks like?
Mod Chaose: I asked Traiborn. He says it looks a bit like a cross between a thimblebibble, a bramblesmibble and a catwhistlethistle.

Q: Is it possible for someone to use divine energy for magic? If so could a human rely on it instead of runes?
Mod Jack: In theory yes. This would be a new branch of magic though, and it could require decades of research to make it work. On the other hand, some insane genius might suddenly wake up and be able to do it. Who knows?


And that's it. Rather disappointing, don't you think?

Better than nothing. I wouldn't mind another Lore Q&A though. "Ptolemos, the friendly, informative Mahjarrat."

Short, but it is understandable since the VIP Q&A was out during the final times of Menaphos, and a lorecornor was planned to be released.

It's not really a disappointment, given the fact that it was a

Q&A about Developer stuff, and we hungry, rude lorehounds and a certain elf of Seren just marched in where we had no business and hijacked the thread by flooding it with lore questions.

True enough, but I was actually referring to the whole Q&A. I didn't find much of it very interesting at all, unfortunately.

So, the Wiki people said that Hazelmere's ring is unrelated to him, even tho Timbo says it is lorewise, so someone should edit his wiki page, bc if I do it, they're just gonna yell at me.
