I think this is better introduced as something not called "uranium", but a radiation-filled substance could easily be introduced into the game. They could even be guarded by radioactive monsters and need special gear to access and process. It could be explained as "tainted anima" causing the radiation or something. It could definitely be spun into OSRS to work lore-wise.sTReTCh1028
They could even be guarded by radioactive monsters and need special gear to access and process. I've made mention of this somewhere through the thread. sTReTCh1028said: "tainted anima" No. It'll stay as Uranium. sTReTCh1028said:

I think this is a cool idea that could be worked into the RS lore (maybe with a bit of a re-name, cause uranium sounds a bit too futuristic/less fantasy-like)
Maybe it could drain health and/or prayer or some other stats from both the player and other people/NPCs within a certain radius, but have extra defensive properties, or boost attack and/or strength or something. So a bit of a risk vs reward type scenario. And/or it could be made into a niche use vs certain types of monster (provides extra defence, for example), or in a particular area of the game (otherwise we take additional damage from a spell/the elements/something untoward that "uranium" would protect against). What do you think?
