Novel spoilers.

Hopefully Gar'rth will play a large role in the werewolf spinoff quest series if it ever actually happens, but there's a good chance it won't. Seeing more of Jerrod would be great too, although he should be kept out of it. He'd fit in really well working for Hazeel if we ever get a quest about re-taking Ardougne. Theodore is dead unless "no longer with us" is supposed to mean something else, and my guess is that he was killed by Jerrod in the Fight Arena. Kara-Meir has been horribly translated into the game and should never have been involved with the Godless, hopefully they can fix her. She would also be a great character for a werewolf series. Some of the other novel-exclusives could appear in a variety future content as well, others not so much, for certain death-related reasons...

There are mentions of some of the other characters by various NPCs. Sadly one reference was removed with the Wizards tower graphical update.


What was it? I'm curious now. I assume it was a reference to Castimere.


Spoilers

The examine text for one of Sedridor's tables referenced Castimir's expulsion.

Does T.S. Church ever plan on making any more books? I know it's unlikely given how long ago Legacy of Blood was released, but it would be awesome.


He really wanted to and had plans for the story going forward. Unfortunately, Jagex didn't.

As others have said, Jerrod is also in the game. There is a huge hint that Gar'rth might make it to River of Blood quest, which is the last myreque quest. However I will not say anything more than that.

I will say, you are about to meet a bunch of characters that are well known in the Myreque quest series.

Church had plans for more books, which will be obvious once you finish. However, Jagex said no to anymore novels.

There is also references to Theo from some characters, but I do not know the full list.

As far as Kara goes, they brutalized her personality in the game. I am hoping when we finally get some damn Godless content, that they will fix her or at least explain what the hell happened between Blood Legacy and the 6th Age.


Where is this hint?

I'm gonna bump this. I remember people saying there was something alluding to Gar'rth being involved in the finale, but it ended up just being Roald referring to the player. It'd be nice to know if there's actually something in LoV that hints toward his involvement in RoB.

@Chaos Lupus
In the final dialogue from King Roald in Lord of Vampyrium, he mentioned an agent in Morytania who might help.
While it is vague, considering the number of characters tied to the Myreque story line from the books, Gar'rth is a likely candidate.


Yeah, I was afraid of that. If it's the line I'm thinking of, Roald is referring to the player, not Gar'rth. "Hmm, perhaps the work of a lone spy behind enemy lines could help? You've made such great strides already, I can think of no one better for such a task."

As for the discussion on Kara Meir's personality shift from the books.
1) The end of the last book occurs a few years before the Year 169, 6th age. So there has been time for her to have suffered even more.
Keep in mind, it's implied she's lost Theo. Gar'rth was separated from her in the end of the last bok. She'd lost numerous friends.
2) She didn't have much love for Saradomists or Zamorakians.
The Kinshra (Zamorakians) were responsible for her father dying, the siege on Falador, and pretty much every annoyance she endured in the book series. That's assuming you even lump in the Vyres as "zamorakian".
There was some vision of a Zamorakian emissary who was trying to lure her with power as a means of solving her problems.
The Saradomists (or at least the White Knights) used her a a pawn to try to lure out a spy.
Fast forward to the Varrock/Vyre conflicts, she saw first hand what a Saradomist leaning mob did to any supposed Zamorakians around the city.
Her friend (the mage) was also cast out rather brutally from the Saradomist aligned Wizard tower. (While it was somewhat his own fault for the crime of hoarding knowledge, the rigidness of the matter, plus how horribly he was treated before and during the trial didn't leave a good impression)

For all we know:
- Theo was killed of by Bandosian warband
- Her pet kitten was stepped on by some Avianese
- She's horribly allergic to Elves and Seren crystal
- and a Zarosian probably burned down her PoH
- and someone following one of the Menaphite pantheon stole her father's sword

Oh, and she does have a reason to hate the follower of Marimbo because they tossed monkey poo on her.


Actually, Gar'rth went to Kandarin with the rest of the group.

My bet for Theodore's killer, assuming he's actually dead, is Jerrod. They were probably thrown into the Fight Arena together.

I think it's time to wake this thread up again, considering how River of Blood basically smashed the plot of the novels to pieces. Below are minor spoilers about the plot of River of Blood, so if you haven't done the quest yet and don't want anything spoiled, don't continue.

It's been officially said that River of Blood marks the FIRST time that the forces of Morytania have invaded the Salve. This means that Tenebra's invasion, and by extension pretty much everything in the second and third books, no longer happened.

I'm very disappointed. I loved the novels so much. Even if they were rarely ever referenced in game, it was nice to just have the knowledge that the things that happened in the book were considered canon in the game world. Now basically everything after the siege of falador is de-canonized. The Myreque quest line is nice, sure, but it's nowhere near as awesome as Return to Canifis/Legacy of Blood.

Also, was anyone else *really* surprised when they saw the Wyrd? Is that supposed to be what the Wyrd in Return to Canifis looked like?? Based on the book's description I was basically envisioning a vyre. Not the thing in River of Blood.

They said in the Q&A before the quest came out that Tenebra's invasion most likely did not happen in canon, because no one in the game talks about it even though It was supposed to have happened only couple of years before the present time.


That's an incredibly stupid way to go when all they need to do is add a few references. Kara-Meir mentions killing Tenebra with the sunspear, it'd a lot more work to completely change the events of how that happened.
