So, I just had an idea for a quest or storyline involving a female goblin named Uggy who, after living her entire life in Bandosian culture which forced her to fight all the time and keep her thoughts hidden, has all of a sudden started to explore these thoughts once Bandos perished in battle with Armadyl. She's a very open-minded individual who is always willing to listen to others' views and take them into consideration. After Bandos' death, Uggy starts to question his philosophy, saying things like "was Big High Chicken God right?" and "is we better than what Big High War God said we is?"

Her past could draw a near parallel with Aagi from Guthix's memories. She would've lived with her father who was killed by one of the goblin tribes at war, and his words to her would stick in her mind forever. One of the words she may use is "wantsed", which would be a mix of the past and present tense as he wanted Uggy to keep an open mind and listen to what people say, and to keep these thoughts in her heart at all times. Uggy would remember these words as his final wish for her, and live up to them to this day, giving this word its present tense as well as the past.

As for her open-mindedness, this would allow the player to aid in shaping her future and any new philosophies they may like her to live by. Even if the player has a god emissary of their own, they may choose to get her to follow any path they choose, even if it's a different god. This could be ideal for anyone who, for example, follows Seren but is interested in Armadyl because they both have similar philosophies in the sense they favour harmony. Anyone interested in this?

Uggy would also learn different things and her outlooks can differ depending on her allegiance. If she follows Saradomin, she could be inducted into the Temple Knights. She would appear in Abbinah if she goes with Armadyl and say something like "Me was right. Big High Chicken God right all along." Other things could happen with other emissaries as well.

Her combat capabilities may involve using Invention. Since she's a goblin, her weapons are likely to use the power of lightning and she could turn invisible. For example, she could shoot bolts with crossbows into trees and rocks, then tap the gizmos to activate a lightning trap. Alternatively, she could stab an opponent with a dagger then use electricity to hit their nervous system and fight alongside her.

Along with Uggy, there could be a group of like-minded ex-Bandosians, such as an ogre training to be a shaman and studying different forms of magic. If he were to align with Zaros, he would use the ancient spellbook and start studying the battlefield more. Following Seren could allow him to experiment with crystals and combine them with runes for extra effects. Saradomin could teach him defensive blessings while Zamorak could show him how to use the zogres near Jiggig to his advantage.

Thank you. :)

I heard in lore that there are some gods that promoted farming, so a troll taking advice from Big Arm could go on this journey and learn from them too. Zaros taught the humans to use crop rotation back in Senntisten, so this troll could also learn to grow different herbs or vegetables in a cycle. Other gods that seem to promote farming include Seren, Brassica Prime, possibly Saradomin, Guthix (the group can also follow the philosophies of dead gods), and there's even a Zamorakian way of farming. My theory is that this would involve burning the plants after harvesting instead of digging it up, so the seeds can be fertilised from the ashes.

Elidinis could be one of the better choices for farming, as she represents fertility and growth anyway. I'm not sure what the Armadyleans did in terms of farming, but I imagine everything they did was as a team. They could also hybrid plants that pollinate in the air, which would suit aviantese or even creative rangers that attach seeds and spores on their ammo.

Quick answer: No.

In all seriousness, I need to let this idea process more time before I can fully give my opinion on it.

For the Bandosian players, there's also the choice of returning Uggy to those roots and watching her grow stronger quickly. She would say something along the lines of "me weak now, but me get stronger. Me is gonna survive no matter what!" and go up the ranks to eventually become the new leader of the Bandosian forces. Those crossbows and daggers would be very useful in this pursuit; they would ambush opponents and use guerilla tactics that would ensure they all survive and grow stronger together.

By taking the loot of the defeated and buying different weapons and investing in gizmos for them, this group could become a force to be reckoned with. "Me and friends not die ever. It also what he wantsed." This statement could suggest that Uggy would strive to grow stronger for herself and her comrades, becoming far stronger and possibly a better leader than Zanik. She might even become the new god of war one day, or end up being the newest player in Sliske's Countdown...
