I think it's quite exciting how Fossil Island could tie into RS3 ...

Fossil Island is apparently a location where ancient beasts once resided:

The Elder Gods,

Who, as we know, are expected to wreak havoc, unless we get to them first.


The Elder Gods are found to be sleeping under the Desert, Ice Mountain, White Wolf Mountain, Entrana and Karamja from Heart of Stone, so perhaps something else in the "Fossil Island" rather.

Anyway, if the main or entire purpose of Fossil Island is just for a quest, perhaps it can be done that way:

After a tour to The Arc, the World Guardian is able to gain control of The Harbringer.... so they (think they) can go to the Fossil Island now.

Just sit back and you'll hear a tale. A tale of a fateful trip...Five passengers set sail that day for a 3 month tour, a 3 month tour....

Bummer! They saw Xau-Tak's Black Hand... and misdirected to another island. They think it is the Fossil Island they have long been looking for but in reality it is just an empty island with some quest items. Nothing of value at all except a few mermaids and the Quest Item. Disappointingly the Harbringer returns to Varrock and delivers the news of nothing to the museum.

At the end of the quest, the search for Fossil Island ends with no new map and content needed to be created because it is a one off useless instance only within the quest.

See? A small twist can change the entire history of Gielinor and RS3 will only get to see "Fossil Island" as the unaccessible Here Be Mermaids on its world map. :D

I think maybe one day in the distant future it can be added but I feel as though Old School and RS3 are trying to make unique content for each of the games, not replicate the same in both.

I want dinosaaaaaaaaaaaaaaurs!

OSRS had a few concepts we could steal.

- Herbiboar: a hunter animal that yields herbs.
- Sulliuscep: Massive mushrooms that you can chop down for mushrooms and mort myre mushrooms
- Birdhouse: Use the construction skill to build a bird house. Come back later to loot it for hunter xp.



Some things u would like to see:

- Dinosaur slayer creatures. With a new craftable weapon drop. We have sooooo much room for more weapon diversity. Perhaps it does more damage against larger targets. I.e. would suck at Majister but would be bomb at Solak.
- A hunter Minigame or DND where you lure and kill a massive dinosaur. Pac-Man Style. Better xp than the Bug Chinchompa. But only twice a day.
- New dinosaur whose hide can be crafted into a t75 power armour. Filling the gap between Armadyl and Pernix. Would be nice seeing as how expensive Pernix is.
- A new weapon poison that has some sort of effect. I.e. chance of 100% accuracy.
- Ancient trees whose logs can be crafted into a new t75 shieldbow.
- Fill out higher tier composite bows.
- Ancient zygomites that have a highee drop rate of Zygomite PoF creature.
- A massive tree that can be chopped for battlestaffs.
- New trees that can be turned into higher tier planks for PoH.
- Elder tree seed drops.
- Make a Woodcutting guild



Just some ideas, cheers!

I don't a Woodcutting Guild would work in game.

You'd end up with another Cryws District in Priff.
- some magic and yew trees
- choking ivy
- elder tree
- spirit tree to access evil tree D&D

RS3 doesn't need any OSRS content
Fossil island isn't OSRS content, it's in RS3 - by in I mean it exists through ingame references.

I personally hope ours is nothing like OSRS's fossil island.


No. Fossil Island is not referenced in any part of the game. It is only a passion project of Mod Mark but never being worked on:

"Draconis V - Are there any concrete plans for Fossil Island?

Mod Osborne:Not concrete. It's a Mod Mark passion project, so I can imagine it getting made at some point in the future. For now, nothing is being worked on."

Only the Curator in the Varrock Museum mentioned an island to the north of Mortynia. No name is given, and not even exact location of it and what is on it are mentioned anywhere within the game.

Pretty funny how you say there is no ingame reference to Fossil Island then bring up the ingame reference.

No it's not referred to as "Fossil Island", that is a placeholder name. Somehow everyone in the thread but you realised that.
You'll get it when you deserve it.
