Happily reading diaries during Kindred Spirits, while feeling like a failure in the previous two puzzles.

"Do you really think you can save them, CakeRider? You can't. The spiral of time leads only to the gaping maw of eternity. And this is Xau-Tak."


My face when.

Odd, considering the diary is set in the 2nd age. (Because the Asylum is active in the diary)


That was kind of the entire poiny. It was supposed to be this ominous wt* moment.

Xau-Tak makes the guy say it because he knows we'll read the journal Sliske wrote in the future.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

Before people start with it, no Xau-Tak most likely isn't the 6th elder god. V talks about Xau-Tak as if he's an old enemy of his. If Xau-Tak was an elder god it'd make no sense for V to survive an encounter. -

What do you think?
Jagex throws out a mini-quest before the Sliske finale where we personally get to kill Xau-tak?

In reality, the god of horrors is overrated.
The World Guardian gets 1 confirmed god kill to their name.

I wonder who the "them" is that is referenced by Xau-Tak? Everyone on Gielinor? Could the "spiral of time" refer to the cycle of creation and destruction by the Elder Gods? Perhaps he means "them" as the Elder Gods? (doubtful) And what is the "gaping maw of eternity"...

edit: I guess it could be about the Barrows Brothers / hostages, but that seems like such a small matter to be worthy of sending a message 4 ages into the future.......

The weird thing about this is... In every context it appears, it means something different.

In Nomad's Elegy, it refers to the cave goblins. In this quest, it refers to the Barrows Brothers/hostages.

There is apparently a third instance of the quote somewhere in the game, but we have no idea where.
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

I think "them" refers to us. A lot of the dialogue in the quest referred to us in gender neutral terms rather than accounting for whatever gender the player is.

The third quote is Original message details are unavailable.
Do you really think you can save them Player? You can't. There is an atrocity written in black stone. And this is Xau-Tak.


We only know of this because Wilson told us about it

I'd reckon that it being said 3 times means it has nothing do with the immediate context in which its being said.

Oh wait, I get it. Xau-Tak is saying we can't save the Signature Heroes. Solved.
