A decade later, we get Kudos Island, huzzah, :D! Acheron and Palingrad next year, then? Woo!

Looking forward to this. At least one quest (right?), plenty of exploration and hopefully some kind of archaeology minigame with cool rewards. I certainly am looking forward to this! :)

Just hope it doesn't suffer from the same mistakes as Menaphos; wanting too much, ending up watering down everything.
get what you're saying but I'm hoping for Arponsandra next year!

Dear Guthix, has the gnome series been so neglected that even I forgot anout Arposandra? Ack. Though I'd be fine if it never became a big thing and just remained mainly a quest location. Same for Palingrad, really. But the rest of Acheron should be great. :D But let's start with Kudos for now. :P
I'd feel the same way except when they polled what quest series we wanted continued next gnomes was in the lead but Jagex decided they were more interested in finishing the pirate series so it's long overdue

Well, I don't see any fossils at all.

In fact, I don't see anything but only hear a roar suggesting some big creature (perhaps the ancient horror).

Draongkin probably creates dragons but horror logically ties to Xau-Tak. Hmm.. can't really tell much from the vid at this point.
Well if we're mincing details the artist rendering at the start appears to show pterodactyls! Also come on the name is the land out of time! I'm actually curious as to what the differences will be between jagex's interpretations of dragons and their interpretations of dinosaurs! The foggy thing is an island though that you can tell!

Pterodactyls have very short legs, long neck and large head. The flying thing Jagex shows looks more like a dargonfly. Perhaps the dragonkin was able to cross a dragon with a fly? :P:P:P

Anyway, the dragokin is already a race out of time. They certainly don't have to look like dinosaurs in our imaginations nowadays. Perhaps the real dinosaurs actually look like dragonkin? Nobody can tell really. :)
Wait you just said no one knows what dinosaurs really look like (though we know part from their skeletal remains) How do you know it looks more like a dragonfly then a pterodactylAlso the rendering has it seen from a distance! Hey and remember the poll when fossil loss to the arc the idea for it was an island full of dinosaurs even had an artist's rendering of a t-rex! Why would the dragonkin cross a dragon with a fly anyway! The dinosaurs we know of didn't have wings! Creatures like the pteradactyls are a separate species called terasaurs and are unrelated!

We only got bones from the dinosaurs from the past. We only got some rough scratches but there is no guarantee there might be some missing parts.

I told you the "pterodactyl" you see doesn't resemble what the modern time scientists think at all. It looks more like an insect (small head, long thick abdomen, wings and such).

Of course, this is based on modern point of views in real life. Jagex doesn't have to be scientific in their own fictional game at all. They also don't have to have dinosaurs on the land out of time especially when dragonkin is already the bona fide race out of time themselves. Actually I want to see something more creative than plain old dinosaurs.
Yeah I look it up and there were a lot of different terasaurs of different shapes and sizes so no one really knows what they fully looked!It said some had structures like pelicans I was using pteradactyls because when most think of flying dinosaur they think of that and archaeopteryx! And that does not look like a dragonfly Those are pointy wings dragonflies have rounded ovaly wings not to mention 2 sets of four wings and those in the picture only have one

I just looked at the darn world map for old and while fossil island in osrs and the land out of time aren't in the exact same spot they are in about the same area! So the the whole not the same spot so not fossil island theory is tenuous at most!

Not just the locations but almost everything from climate, mobs, landscape, plants are different.

Land out of Time looks like sunny and tropical with gigantic mobs like at least the flying serpent-like mob shown on the picture and the earth shaking roaring "terror" at the end of the vid.

I don't think it has the damp moist shady habitat for tiny mushroom men to grow or swarm or wastelands for lizardmen.
I didn't say they were the same I just meant the location thing is debatable

And your mixing up areas lizardmen are on zeah not fossil island! This game has a type of lizard on every climate except snow! Tropical climate are perfect for lizards and mushrooms to thrive! darn buttons sorry for the double post! On a different subject did you know the original ingame dragonkin looked more vulture then a lizard or dragon?

Lets be realistic they took away the kudos req because it would require numerous 5th age quest completion and would thus limit player access! Jagex should at least change the varrock museum dialogue where it says you need the kudos to use barge/boat!

That's another example of Jagex changing their minds they originally said they weren't interested in making more world events! ( probably because of the complaints about the tuska world event) The sarim and falador things aren't considered world events!

Dilbert I see your point but here's a good example! The final elf quest! Yes not have quest req would have allowed a lot more people to use elf city but it would have cheapened the work and accomplishment that players put into completeing the elf series! In the elf series finale Jagex knew better then to pull the no req stuff!

not I don't like the idea because of how long it took to do the elf series and Jagex almost decided to let people into elf city without doing anything!You regrow the city in the final quest for pete's sake!I'm not saying there aren't good reasons to do it sometimes but now I think about it case by case basis is a good way to do it!And I don't think I'm above the others but if everyone's equal why shouldn't they be required to complete everything too!Also isn't letting people in free putting them above other players?

Because new players don't have 18 years to waste to get to the "equal" level we players who started 18 years ago are at now.
It only took that long because they insisted on waiting till the graphical upgrade to do elf city! The quests wouldn't take 18 years now!And there are much better ways of training now!
