Orthen doesn't have to be an island, let alone Fossil Island, just like The Shadow Reef doesn't have to be, and is not, The Arc... and not even on the surface of Gielinor. ;)


That was already properly elaborated in the quest's narrative. Yeah, it is an island.


Orthen, which means "first
city
" in the language of the Dragonkin according to Charos, is a place on Gielinor.

Also said to be an island to the north-east. Moreover we know that Kudos Island/Fossil Island has a Dragonkin connection. And now this massive Digsite rework.

I'd be very surprised indeed if Orthen wasn't the island.

Perhaps you're half right; perhaps we can't win. But we can fight.

I don't think either Charos or any dragonkin said of Orthen as an "island" anywhere in the game. Unless you think Charos is wrong, Orthen is supposed to be the original home
city
of the Dragonkin.

Can't check dialogue, but the quest journal at least says island. Also, see world map. :)

Nothing says the island Orthen in quest journal or the world map. :)

Yes it does, end of the quest journal.

World map shows an obscured island.
