I have been updating the RS Wiki all day, so I'll be posting major stuff here for you guys to look at. Enjoy! :D

~Gods:~



Units of Saradominist and Zamorakian armies. I have added a page for each to the Wiki, so feel free to look them up.


What Saradominist Humans battle armor looked like (Also new clue scroll armor rewards)

*Gods may choose whether or not they wish to defecate.

*Both Armadyl's husbands were men.

*
Anima is delicious, Brassica Prime is delicious, Brassica Prime is the endgame of the Elder Gods.

~Unique People:~


*
Solak is the 8th Guardian of Guthix
. Solak is a creature of the anima mundi and guardian of Guthix who defends the Lost Grove from those who want its power. Back in the second Age, Seren had sent a group of elite elf warriors to help in this divine task, with betrayal leading to one of those elves being consumed by Solak and the island disappearing into the mists of time.

*The Lost Grove is a place where basically a "Tree of Time" or a "Yggdrasil Tree" grows. The tree is connected to the Gielinor's anima core.


Hostilius is going to be a new boss in the Abyss
, which we will kill from the inside, out. He is apparently still alive there. In the concept art, he appears to be suspended and restrained by portals.





Bandosian Forces



*Dragonkin are still dying out and cannot reproduce.

~Cosmology:~



How the multiverse is designed.


Dark worlds are remnants old worlds from the previous Revision, with traces of magic from said Revision (this is where Ancient Magicks come from).


Moving upwards, we come to the elemental worlds.


Further up, we come to the Catalytic worlds, with each Rune based on a Chakra, and Mod Stu explains it better than I would be able to, but it makes sense. Something about of Consciousness of thought.

*Mod Stu describes the Shadow Realm as a "Spine that runs through *most* worlds". It is essentially a shadow or mirror of reality.

*Shadow appears to be more prominent for some reason, appearing in more realities.

*Elder gods in their infancy, are more Elemental Titans, than abstract concepts (like Time).

*The Primordial Realm is part of the Abyss.

*
Rune Altars use their power to draw energy in from the various Elemental and Catalytic Planes.


*
Hallow is the name of the Planet, New Domina is the name of the Capitol.


*Along the equator, there is a flotilla of ice laden of tropical islands, called the Hallowed Isles.

*The water is highly acidic. Sailing is dangerous, little sea life.

*Wing clipping is not a barbaric act, but an honored tradition. But only to "wrongdoers".

*Saradomin built New Domina as a floating fortress to follow the sun. Named after the village where he was born. Most Icyene live here now.


They have very superstitious beliefs

*Iaia is down to only one village of Illjuanka.

*Agrarian society.

*They believe that the death of their species is something natural that must happen.

Great fun session to have been to! Some good laughs from certain questions. And impressed by how we managed to stretch it from its scheduled 90 minutes to a little over two hours.

Both Armadyl's husbands were men.


Sounds a little redundant when you put it like that, hahah.

Can remember the answers to the three questions I asked:

* Asked whether the different "roles" of the Elder Gods were inspired in any way by the concept of the Triple Goddess (maiden, mother, crone) -- essentially the same sort of thing, just with the Elder Gods extending that across five different stages of life and with a few alterations. Not quite sure whether I worded the question entirely clearly, but IIRC the answer was something like "not quite, similar sort of concept, and hey maybe it is a trio of maiden, mother and crone elder gods in an alternate universe".
* Asked what Vindicta's role in Zaros' eyes was, seeing as she was in his entourage in Endgame along with Bunny Ears and Burny Ears Azzanadra and Char. Just seen as a bodyguard, or something more? And yeah, pretty much seen as a bodyguard. Badass Ilujanka kept on hand to deal with
* Asked what Char would be doing now that her role to keep an eye on Sliske is fulfilled (for all that the characters are aware). Answer was that she's pretty much moved in with Nex now. Sleepovers and toasting marshmallows (nice to have Char on hand as a permanent campfire, heheh).

Specific other tidbits I remember: Armadyl ascended using two elder artefacts, starting off as a T5 god, then ascended to T4 through use of the Staff of Armadyl (which he apparently didn't find on Abbinah or Gielinor). The home world of the Icyene is named Hallow, and New Domina is simply its capital; it was a gift from Saradomin, moving to ensure it stays in the sun at all times and allowing the Icyene more constant living conditions.

Ilujanka have all sorts of pointless, meaningless superstitions like not resting against red-leaved trees, or not drinking tea with their left hands. Vindicta would be in for a hell of a lot of culture shock on reunion with the Ilujanka. And don't forget the 100% accidental Nomad and Sliske slide that had no significance whatsoever. Can remember more than that, but too tired to write much more of it down. Loved all the cosmology stuff though!

Brassica Prime is the sixth Elder God btw

Now that the various planes are all aligned to specific Runic energy, and runes are confirmed to be trace amounts of planar energy transported across time and space, it makes one question even more pressing.

What the hell is the connection between Rune essence and Sacred clay? They have similar properties, since Clay would have to absorb elemental or catalytic energy in order to form the various planes, and you can make and use runes out of the Clay.

Is it that Sacred clay is the intended product of the Catalyst, and Rune Essence is just an accidental byproduct because there wasn't an Elder around to use it properly?

Essence is just created nonsense that can harness runic energy.

Sacred Clay is basically just Elder God trash. So, they're related in that they're malleable for energy purposes, but not much else, from what I understand.

Love how they're still pushing this Bandosian stuff when they essentially cut the head off that storyline.

Also something I'm confused about.

*Wing clipping is not a barbaric act, but an honored tradition. But only to "wrongdoers".


Are we talking about cutting off the main feathers on a wing, and them growing back like people do to pet birds, or are we talking about Good Ol' Fashion Saradomin Wing-Rippings?

Also:
Spoiler: Dimenson of the Damned is a dimension where Saradomin won the SoJ, so now he's using it and the wand of resurrection to it's fullest. Reason it takes place in falador is because it's supposed to be the white knights going "Oh shit, we dun goofed!"
"Your god's dead next time he's in a world event. "

Ty for posting this, I'll be updating my Worlds thread with this information, however a lot of the names are too blurry to make out what they say... -Ascertes, King of all the Hallowlands and the Ever-Chosen of Saradomin.
