(My lore might be off for this, so it may not be a Lorefail. Also this may hav been answered somewhere, but I just missed it.)

When the Barrows Brother's show up, why are they not in their Rise of the Six forms?

As a side note, do you think that since they're going to make the quest replayable, that they'll add in the assets that they forgot (i.e. Sliske's model with the SoA, Akrisae the Doomed, the flashback to Kindred Spirits)?

Possible effect of the thing we did in secret during Kindred Spirits?

Also I believe I read somewhere on Reddit about Mod Raven saying he'll attempt to add Akrisae in.

Not a lore fail.

They are in their undead forms, rather than their souped up superwight forms because they have shaken off any semblance of Sliske's control over them.

Akrisae is an honest mistake (we forgot about him, just as most people forget about him at the Barrows) but he'll be back in when I have completed getting replayabilty working.

Will the flashback to Kindred Spirits be incorporated? As much as I really dislike Kindred Spirits (and don’t think it worked on many of the levels it needed to), it did happen and is meant to be linked in as a core part of the Sliske storyline.

YESSSSSSSSSS!!! :D :D :D

(What about Sliske's model holding the Staff of Armadyl, and the flashback? Or would it take up too much dev time to do those?)

I hope he gets a spoken line. He was friends with the player after all...

Don't recall about the flashback, but I know Sliske's model with the staff is being done.

Ditto. Akrisae took the 'wighting' for us in ROTM. We may have had to argue with him earlier in the quest, but in the end he was there for us. I for one felt bad when he got 'wighted' and wished there was something I could do for him back then. In any case, he certainly shouldn't be ignored given his prior role and all.

No. Liar. Not true. He was not our friend. He was nobody's friend. He was hated by everyone, especially the WG. He sacrificed himself because his life was worthless. He was forgotten because his existence is meaningless.
Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

I never got that vibe. He was the guy who I worked with to take down Lucien, but that was about it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very thankful that he sacrificed himself to save me, but I really never considered him a friend.

Definitely hoping to see that flashback.
