RS3 has developed over a decade beyond the point OSRS was at. There are many completed questlines in RS3 that remain unfinished in OSRS. Most notably OSRS has not had the gods return, had Priffdinas restored, or had Lucien seek the Stone of Jas. It is very much its own world/timeline, but backstory wise there seems to be some level of consitency between the two brands, as OSRS acknowleges a few RS3 developments in Dragon Slayer 2 like Kethsi, Elder Artifacts and Illujanka.
Beyond that OSRS has also added elements of its own, like Fossil Island and the continent of Zeah. Much of their current lore developments focus on fleshing out these areas. Fossil Island was once home Dragonkin laboratories, while from what I've gathered the kingdom(s?) on Zeah were founded by refugees from the God Wars or Dragonkin conflicts.-
I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?

that sounds very cool, is there any other information on this anywhere? would love to check it out.
Hey there! I'm not an OSRS player, but I've been looking into its lore a bit recently. There's definitely some interesting stuff in there.
Check out the books in the Arceuus Library for Zeah lore -- there's a list of them on this page: http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Arceuus_House_Library
For Dragonkin lore relating to Fossil Island, the Ancient Diary is well worth a read: http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Ancient_Diary
As well as various lore books from their new grandmaster quest, Dragon Slayer II: http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Aivas%27_diary http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Malumac%27s_journal http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Old_notes
For Fossil Island in general, there's the Fossil Island Note Book: http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Fossil_island_note_book
I'd also recommend Ohn's Diary for lore on the boss Zulrah: http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Ohn%27s_diary
And the Myth's Guild Library for general lore. http://oldschoolrunescape.wikia.com/wiki/Myths'_Guild#Second_Floor
