I know this is going to sound like a cheap shot, but isn't Santa Claus evidence that humans can, under certain conditions, obtain a much longer lifespan than normal? In a world of magic, you could assume that's possible anyway. This could explain away just about everything wrong with Viggora in lore.


Santa is actually a mahjarrat. So is the Easter Bunny.

Just saw Page 13 and I wonder, are Ripper Demons considered to be a subspecies or not? Or should we see Ripper Demons as a death squad (with a 'father' as head)?

PS I like his name :).





I like the idea that they are a death squad of specifically chosen demons from birth? Creation? These demons would be fed the appropriate beings needed to make them into killing machines.

though i am not sure if rippers are the non eating ones, as Zammy had some in his army.


They're avernic.

Spoilers: Klause is dead.

I tought Klause joined Zamorak anyway?


I would imagine that only Lord Drakan joined Zamorak prior to the rebellion, and the rest of the vampyres joined the crowd after his allegiance became known. After all, Zamorak kept his plot between himself and a few powerful allies.

If Viggoras word is to be believed there were Vampyre warriors present, the important part being the S making it plural. This means it was possible Klause was there.


But he's not to be believed. Don't listen to the crazy ghost!

I'm starting to really want this comic to be turned into a fully-voiced cut scene. That would take a lot of time and resources, though :(

Still, I would love to see it in future content.

Rumours are spreading throughout the empire that the Empty Lord was destroyed in the battle. I cannot believe that. There is no power in this world capable of destroying him. He must be out there, but the portal has failed to establish communication.


I wrote that text, and although your interpretation makes sense, that isn't how I meant it. I probably could have worded it better.

Azzanadra isn't saying he wasn't there. He watched what happened to Zaros. He doesn't believe that what he saw was Zaros's death. He believes that what he saw was Zaros retreating out of his body before its destruction. There was no evidence to support this belief, but it turns out it was correct after all.



Ah okay thanks


So is zaros in zamorak atm, in fot* to access our threshold of the mind he had to enter us, but then again this time zaros has a body.


Out of context, this post could be taken the wrong way :P

Anyway, Zaros needed our permission because we're the world guardian. God magic, for the most part, is ineffective against us. Saradomin and Zaros couldn't teleport us without our permission, because of Guthix's blessing/curse.

@ Rondsat

I couldn't disagree with you more. Mod Ollie has done a fantastic job with story content whenever given an interesting premise to work with.

MPD was an amazing set up to the second Gielinorian God Wars, revealing each god's outlook on the idea and shedding light on the way in which many of their followers view them. The Sixth Age could have been amazing had BatB not come along and completely derailed it. Broken Home, I would argue, has the most intriguing backstory to any self-contained quest in the game, with the exception of One Piercing Note. DAT had a few missed opportunities, but all in all, it was a great collaboration of interesting characters, and did a great job shedding light on many controversial issues from Zamorak's perspective. TLW was also based on Ollie's design and, while I did not personally particularly care for the story told in Tales of the God Wars, that was also very well-received, as with all of the other things that I listed.

I really don't get where some of your points are coming from. For one, Runescape characters tend to be relatively weak in comparison to others from the genre no matter who's developing their content. RS quests just aren't a very good platform for creating rich characters, as they're so limited in the time frame that they can use, and they require the constant interruption of gameplay mechanics and dialogue relating to the present in order to maintain flow. Mahjarrat memories is much better at delving deeper into characters, as it's literally just paragraphs upon paragraphs of their interactions, opinions, and motivations from their point of view. But as far as quests go, Ollie has made several characters much more interesting just by adding some nuance to them. Hazeel is more than just a tyrant, he cares for someone like a brother. Khazard isnít just a stereotypical dumb villain, heís someone who seeks to discover his fatherís identity, and blames himself for his motherís death. Zemouregalís not just Zamorakís boot licker, heís vocal about criticisms of his god. The one major misstep would be that Nomad was the one to betray Zamorak, rather than Zemouregal, who had been set up for it.

And Ollie can't write dialogue? I'd argue that, with a few exceptions here and there, the dialogue in his content is among the best in the game. ďSanity is a fleeting concept in this underground world of stone and magic. Who is to say madness is not enlightenment?Ē Just look at the interactions between Sliske and the gods in MPD, itís one of the most entertaining exchanges in the game. And the words of their followers were also handled very well, especially as they were complimented by the voice acting.
