The Ape Atoll monkeys act nothing like their goddess, Marimbo. They are so strict, brutal, and live under a demanding monarchy. Where are all the parties, booze, fun? What happened between the time Marimbo left Gielinor and her return?

Did some huge ramification take place where they decided to neglect all of their goddess's basic principles of drinking until your brain dead? How the hell do you even change from a society of party-goers to a race of human-killing brutes that trains monkeys to become ninja assassins?

Yes, I know Jagex did not decide what they wanted her philosophies to be ( or even her gender, for the matter) 'till a few years ago. It has been 7 years since the last monkey quest. If a new monkey quest ever comes up, I would want to see a STRONG canon explanation why ape atoll turned into such a mess.

With that being said, let's come up with some ideas why you think Ape atoll turned into such a cesspool than what it was before (or if it wasn't already a bigger poop-slinging mess when Marimbo was around, that is.)

Why did some factions of Zamorakians become obssessed with causing chaos for the sake of destruction? They interpreted the doctrine differently. Keep in mind, Marimbo is the Goddess of Hedonism, and hedonism encourages pursuing self pleasure above all else. Mix in a ruler or two who decide that outsiders reduce the ability of the monkeys to pursue individual pleasure (especially with the inherent language barrier), and you very quickly develop an aggressively xenophobic society.

I think they went complete AWOL than just xenophobia towards outsider. We are looking at a 180 degree change. I see no partying or hedonism ANYWHERE on Ape Atoll lol. It seems this monarchy they created washed away all hedonistic views internally overtime. It's fascinating to see how much doctrines get distorted and changed over time, even in real life.
