Can you explain the dark ancient smoke of last revision vs the runic smoke of this one a bit better? What's the fundamental difference? Could smoke runes still be used for ancient smoke magic, without a need for death or blood runes like in game - as far as I'm aware, runes can be used to generate a source of their specific element, so. And what about dark, ancient blood vs our catalytic blood runes? Same questions - what's the difference, can blood runes alone be enough for ancient blood magic or are fire runes required, and can blood runes even generate blood (or if catalytic runes can't generate their element, can they still manipulate it? I.E. nature runes allowing for manipulation of plant life - the blood altar is full of actual blood, after all). Mods pls notice me

^ I was thinking something along those lines, yea, but I'm wondering what those specific situations where they react differently would be. So would smoke magic that has its basis in smoke (fire + air) runes be accepted at the wizards tower?

Also, on the topic of lightning magic, I'd definitely say include chaos in the runic combination if you choose to do combo, but I think lightning/plasma/electromagnetism being an independent runic energy that we haven't come across (due to it maybe not being part of Gielinor's balance) would be a lot better.

I think you misunderstood the way in which V created the altars - he just created access points to the significant energy influxes that were already there at the locations where he set up the altars.
Also, Tarddiad isn't the only soul plane, so I doubt the soul altar draws exclusively from the elf world. It's just the only soul plane that we know of.

Oh, and what of ice magic? Would we be able to have non-dark, non-ancient "frost" magic that isn't aligned with the last revision or the lower planes?


Water + Death?
Water + Air + Death?

I feel like the death rune's energy would throw it right into dark-element ice territory, seeing as death energy is evidently a form of dark energy (Dark Lord and such), but I can't think of any other combo that doesn't involve death. Death rune really does just make sense XD
Maybe non-dark ice would just be a plain water rune, though? Sort of like the Avatar route, where water magic/waterbending can straight up freeze water. Advanced form of water magic in the RS universe, maybe?

Just realized something.

We have dark worlds for Blood (Vampyrium), Ice (Leng), and Smoke (Infernus). Yet we know that at least one dark world for Shadow should also exist due to the element's continued presence in this cycle.

I see 2 distinct possibilities for such a world:

1. The shadow realm (the name explains itself, though I'd find it odd if a previous revision's planehallens to be coterminous with all/most of those in this revision).
2. The Dragonkin homeworld. We know it survived the last cycle thanks to Forcae's journal, and we have good reason to suspect that it was one of the planes close to Freneskae during the last cycle (Mah's corruption taking place last cycle and its worsening kept her from preventing sapient life on some of the later planes) like the other dark worlds are said to have been.

With how shifty Jagex has been regarding shadow and how reluctant they are to give details on it, I think there may not have been any worlds made with the aspect of shadow, besides the shadow realm which may not have even been intentionally created given Stu's answers on twitter.

Saradomin went to Hallow (New Domina), Armadyl roamed the cosmos like V, Zamorak was... at the bottom of the Daemonheim rift I guess? Unsure about the others. But I'm not quite sure what you're asking? A plane/world is a planet, so when V says he visited a world where gods have ravaged the land, he's talking about a planet. Maybe other gods have seen the same planets, maybe not - there ARE a lot, after all.
Tuska came from the Abyss, since that's how you travel between planes. She probably hopped off a random planet she had finished devouring.
And.. Yes, Gielinor has been discovered by other beings? There are hundreds of non-native life-forms on the planet, so I'm not sure I understand what you're getting at? .-.

Tbh it looks like they're doing that with multiple different entities -- e.g. the way they're setting up Teragard seems to present the planet and its people as a massive threat should they ever decide to leave their world. Then there's obviously Xau-Tak, and there's whatever is up with the Shadow Realm, and the elder gods in general, and the Queen of Ashes sounds like she has an incredibly large interplanar following - albeit not on the scale Saradomin has.
I'm most looking forward to Teragard tbh, or any technologically advanced human colony world *nod*

^^^ The Void pest lore rn is really wonky since quests state that they're from a normal plane with a tropical climate, and they just use the Void to travel - but then recently Jagex said they're actually FROM the Void, so either it was a lorefail or their homeworld just drifts in the Void. If the latter is the case, it's possible that there are other elders that create other universes aside from OUR elder group, and possibly some universes that were created without Peripheries separating them from the Void.
