Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for a partyhat, will give him a scorpion?

Interesting translation, for there to be a partyhat involved. > )

To keep it 50-50 Bible-Runescape, I think you could reword it like this:

Original message details are unavailable.
Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a blowpipe, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for a malediction shard, will give him a scorpion?


...especially since the "Cheerful kingdom of Rimmington" already heavily revolves around partyhats. Which, speaking of that one, it's a clever story in general but I don't think it's appropriate for partyhats. > )

Anja walks on the water - (Matthew 14:22-33)

Cool story but, since it involved fishing trawler and faith, I was half expecting Heron the fishing pet to play a part in it because the base chance is the lowest there. > )



I'd like thousands of manta rays though!

Anja enriches wine of Zamorak - (John 2:1-11)

Jokku23 said:
A wedding took place at Zamorakian church south of Aubury's Rune Shop in the south-east corner of Varrock. Anja and her sweepers had not been invited to the wedding, but they decided to attend anyway.

But why did they crash the party? > /

Jokku23 said:
Nearby stood six stone jars of wine of Zamorak, the kind used by the herblorists for super ranging potions, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

Ah, so that's why super range pots are banned in advanced format; they're made from evil Zammy wines! > )

Jokku23 said:
Anja said, "Let me see", and blessed the wine. The wine had now become perfect. The master of the banquet praised Anja, and everyone started planning a revenge on Zamorak.

What Anja did here in Varrock was the first of the signs through which she revealed her opposition against Zamorak, and her sweepers believed in her.

So with all the hate towards Zamorak, is Anja essentially female Saradomin?

She was in Gielinor, and Gielinor was made by her, and investors and braggers knew her not.

She came unto her own, and her own received her not.

But as many as received her, to them gave she power to obtain free stuff and currency known as gold, coins, or gold pieces (gp).

Pretty confusing beginning (rough translation?), but it starts to make sense here and feel familiar! > )

Which were gained, not by skilling, nor by bossing, nor by merching, but by begging, with the help of Goddess of Freebies.

But what if begging was made into a skill?

So it's just padding then? I think it'd be better to explain both of them instead, like I don't even understand what the Word is; this is the first time it's brought up, and it's not brought up again.


Jokku23 said:
Lol looks like you found a loophole! Beginning is a true skill, after all... But by skilling we usually mean those skills like wc, mining, divination. If/when begging is made an official skill, we can just assume it's an old story from the times when begging wasn't an official skill!

But what if it already is, just that it's not developed yet to the gameplay? Like for example, Vorkath technically exists in RS3, but simply hasn't been coded to the game (yet). > )

And there was evening, and there was morning - the first daily reset.

Lmao, the daily reset was a nice touch, and you even remembered the weekly reset timing (I didn't at first)! > )


Jokku23 said:
And Anja said, "Let there be free permanent item spawns that last forever". And it was so. Among other things, free antipoison spawn was added near Observatory clue spot, and it helped adventurers who became poisoned during Treasure Trails. And Anja saw that free item spawns were good.

Finally, I've been wondering forever as to how those spawns came to be!


Jokku23 said:
And Anja said, "Let there be a farm where talented sweepers can practise their skills". Anja created a minigame and called it "Vinesweeper". And it was so. Anja made Menaphos city quest require a lot of rosemary seeds. This made Vinesweeper very profitable for the most talented sweepers. And Anja saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning - the fourth daily reset.

Oi! Menaphos came to be much later than ports and some of the other stuff afterwards! Isn't this chronological?


Jokku23 said:
Anja made mint cakes available from Hefin course so that sweepers could beg for a treat from their agile friends.

Cheerio for the reference! > )

Cheers for reading!

You're welcome! > )


Jokku23 said:
Menaphos is still there even in Old School, but players couldn't get in. Sweepers however were warmly welcomed in Menaphos because the citizens wanted Rosemary seeds. And it was so.

Does this fix the plot hole?

But since they were both "unbuilt", wouldn't Prifddinas become a plot hole if you applied this?

No, it makes perfect sense!

Menaphos had buildings even before Vinesweeper. Players just weren't allowed in. Sweepers can confirm this information.

Sweepers are not sure if Prifddinas was unbuilt or not, but it was pretty much dead in comparison to after Anja helped make it alive.

Does this sound legit?

Just went to check it out again; there's nothing there but sand (or it looks like sand so I assume it's sand)! > )

New story out!

Hmm, but was it really Anja who saved the sweepers from being burned? Maybe they used super antifires instead? > )

Although I guess Anja could've given them said potions...

I don't remember what that story is in the actual Bible, but the smithing rework reference was cool! I also know that those music tracks listed are from Runescape, but I don't really remember where they play or what they sound like (I'm guessing the altar one is at a runecrafting altar). Sea Shanty 2 could've been useful there... > )
