I agree with some of your changes, so I'm just going to run through some of them. I'll be brief.

Chapter 3:
1.) Agreed.

2.) Agreed, although I'd probably go with something along the lines of "Lord of chaos and strength" or "Father of invention (or progress)". I somewhat favor the latter. As things currently stand, the player kind of pulls that title out of nowhere. It would make more sense if it was commonly used among Zamorakians.

Chapter 4:
1.) I probably wouldn't go with violating the edicts as the reason, but I do agree that the original reason should be changed. Using favoritism makes it just sound petty.

Chapter 5:
1.) I strongly disagree here. It makes perfect sense for many Zamorakians to be from working class backgrounds as Zamorakianism basically advocates that everyone has the potential to rise above their current status regardless of their origins. Just because some members of the court were Zamorakian, it doesn't mean that the majority weren't from a lower class. Perhaps some of the higher ranking officials were from humble beginnings themselves.

2.) If I recall correctly, the White Knights did*ĺt actually get involved during Tenebraĺs attempted invasion of Misthalin. Varrock sent an envoy (Kara-Meir) to meet with the Kinshra before the White Knights. They originally planned on turning down Daquariusĺ offer so that they could accept aid from the White Knights instead, but the aid of the Kinshra became much more important when an escort for the essence was required. That being said, they worked together during the void knight quest series.

Chapter 6:
1.) Sure.

2.) I donĺt mind either way.

3.) Sure.

Chapter 8:
1.) Seeing as Daquarius commissioned it to be written, ok. Otherwise, there are plenty of extremists in the Kinshra who probably wouldnĺt mind.

2.) I donĺt know what I would replace it with, but it does seem really weird that the Kinshra would admit to the fact that their founder wanted their order to be dissolved.

Chapter 9:
1.) Maybe.

I really hope that you keep the part about working class backgrounds. It may seem like a small detail, but it's fitting and provides a good reason for why Zamorakianism would have remained popular during the time.

That said, Dishonour among Thieves provides Daquarius's views on Zamorakianism, which could be key information for any revisions to the book.


Yes - I've got those views, and they've given me some great ideas I'm very keen about. I've already been discussing them with Zoli, and even gave him a reading of some (very rough) writing I was doing! Stay tuned. I've got a good feeling about this. :D


Would you mind if I read through it?

I read this in my head in TokHaar-Hok's voice.

Besides that, it doesn't seem the Black Knights did as Lord Valzin told them.

Ah, this was intended. Stuff happened in between. Cool stuff.
The book trio you mean?

No.

This was a great read, I especially loved the inclusion of Lungrim. I definitely prefer this version to the previous one.

Something that I think should be added, though, is more specific details about how the Kinshra helped to establish Asgarnia. Driving the trolls into the mountains, for example.

Eh. I don't even know. Jagex seems to flip flop constantly with that. They keep using the modern Kinshra as an example of what Zamorakianism isn't and then try to say their leader is a true Zamorakian.


Daquarius has been attempting to reform the Kinshra ever since Sulla's downfall. There are obviously still extremists, but he's trying to present them with a better understanding of Zamorakianism and actively re-recruited many of those who had abandoned the Kinshra due to their extremism.
