Anachronia is Anachronia. That's all we know, and officially informed so by Jagex.

Anacrhonia is just referred to as "Foss..." by one NPC, much like Evil Bob said "I am Zar..." but what he meant was just "meow". Evil Bob is not Zaros much like the barge has gone to Anachronia and not Fossil Island. These are just some occasions Jagex tried to poke some fun at the players. :D:D:D

If you think Evil Bob is Zaros, that's fine to me, but shrug! In reality he is a "Zar..." without Zaros' powers.

Likewise, if you insist Anachrnia is Fossil Island, that's fine to me, but Shrug! In reality it is just a "Foss..." but nothing else. Just shrug!!! :D


so you don't know if it is fossil, most likely or orthen, not likely. if jagex follows it's own story-line orthen should not be fossil. i don't know anything, because jagex. shrug

one of the points i make is that players are tired of being poked, shrug. it's too late for me. soon it will be too late for others. shrug.

reldo is charos, of course evil bob is zaros. shrug

As I mentioned, if you still believe Bob is Zaros, be my guest. Oh but then perhaps you may also want to think Zaros is dead in OSRS then. :D

"Formally known as Foss-"

Because Jagex is teasing the players by making a cheeky reference to its former name. Anachronia is the spiritual successor of Fossil Island. The "formally known as" makes all the difference when compared to the Bob example.

As a side-note: did Jagex employ a Dutchie for these things ? Orthen is a Dutch city (ok, former city since it was annexxated by a neighbouring one) and "Lottie Reiniger" sounds pretty Dutch as well.
It's too late. You've awakened the gazebo.

What? Bob evil said "
I am
Zar...". He didn't even say he was formerly known as "Zar...". He said that using PRESENT TENSE and yet we know either he is not Zaros or Zaors is dead in OSRS. :D:D:D

Bob is obviously a tongue and cheek dialogue whereas Fossil Island is a reference to its former name. Its precisely because Bob says "am" that makes the difference.

Not necessarily so as Orthen is probably just derived from Ortha which means "First" in Dragonkin languge according to Charos. I don't think Ortha has anything specifically to do with Dutch.

Jagex announced the new island will be Anachronia, definitely not Orthen, Fossil Island, Isda whatever.

Jagex's in game lore from Charos also indicated Ortha = First in Dragonkin langugae. Orthen = First City. There is also no Dutch in Gilinor.

Likewis, Jagex showed clearly with facts that Bob is not Zaros, at leat he is definitely not Zaros in RS3. One may still think Zaros is the dead because of Bob the dead OSRS cat

But shrug! I can't help as there is no lore whatsoever regarding even the name of Fossil Island or Bob being Zaros in the game. Others can think whatever they want to think but it is all the content we players enjoy that counts. We know Anachronia comes with
new skilling activities
, jungles and shores and earth shaking dinosaurs but not swamps and tiny mushroom midgets, That's all matter and seem very promising already. :)

There have been plenty (many) instances where original Dragonkin names were translated/renamed to modern names, either because the name was too old/primal, or simply forgotten. Too many instances to refute that Anachronia is Orthen in modern namesake.
Roawr.
