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.


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. :)

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

Another thing that points to the future big time is the Senntisten Temple Teleport on the digsite necklace. It no longer takes you to the Temple. It now takes you to the barge.

Yes it does, end of the quest journal.

World map shows an obscured island.

so is the update supposed to be a world event? was it supposed to be a 2 month we? if so how can it be behind a kudos wall?

is it permanent content? one that requires full kudos? or hidden behind a quest line as well?

I believe your questions can only be answered when Jagex reveal the REAL summer content and such. It won't be long though.

For now, some people are just guessing or even taking things out of context the way they like. ;)
