But now that we know Oreb is alive, and his journal was at the brink of turning to dust as we read it, it becomes clear to me that he did indeed figure out how to transfer ones soul to another host.

Namely his own. Which is why he survived his assassination attempt, and by the condition of his notes, beyond that of a normal humans lifespan.

I wonder..

Sliske was tipped off about the Staff and what it can do with souls by his Master, yet his Master named it in mortal terms..

Very interesting indeed. Very...sinister indeed.


Yeah, this has me suspecting that Oreb might be Sliske's master. It would be ironic that Nomad would eventually end up being serving Oreb again in one way or another. However, I get the impression that the master is meant to be someone who was already around prior to Kindred Spirits, but since that quest was Oreb's introduction, I don't think he fits.

I hope there aren't more, One mastermind is enough. Although once all is said and done, I would certainly have a word with that disgraceful group of Magisters.


We know that there are seven Magisters. I wonder if there's a new leader of House Charron.


By the way, did Nomad's claim about something with a sapphire to the west, where it is always night, mean anything? The clue about going to the east was meant for Aubury, but it seemed like that particular hint pointed in two separate directions.

Considering how the White and Temple Knights influenced Nomad, I wonder if Sliske turning Nomad into a wight will be followed by sending Nomad against Saradomin in that labyrinth in the Endgame.

Oreb confirmed Sliske's master. Calling it here, folks! Does that mean we get to visit Terragard in 2017?! HYPE!

Also, if Oreb is Sliske's master.. then how did he know about the Staff? I know he would know about the pulling out souls thing, but where did he get his knowledge of the Staff? WHO is he trying to lure to Sliske's game? Saradomin seems most likely, but why? To bring him back to Terragard? Maybe to gain his powers? WHY would he work with Sliske of all people? Did he come to Sliske, or did Sliske come to him?


Please let Teragard be one of the 2017 expansions! I also really want them to relate this story to Robert's. I also hope that they somehow relate Nomad's story to however One of a Kind and Hero's Welcome are included.

Good questions about the stuff. The idea that Oreb is Sliske's master is just an impulsive, though I do admit I would prefer if he weren't the master.

At the moment Oreb seems like one of the most likely candidates for Sliske's master. We know Sliske wants to save himself from oblivion, so it makes sense he'd contact someone with considerable knowledge of the subject. It also explains howSliske could have one of his books and knowledge of his theories. The fire warrior's presence in The Temple of Ikov might explain how he knew of the staff.


I hadn't watched the Lore Corner at the time I saw this post, but now that I see how Lesarkus is tied to the Magisters, I could see there being some connection. Raven's comment did indicate that the Magisters backstab each other, so maybe there was some hostility between Oreb and Magister of House Lesarkus? In a way, the Fire Warrior was actually protecting the Staff, so maybe Lesarkus. I could see Lesarkus finding the Staff useful, but he might be someone Armadyl would consider an ally.

Whatever the Big Game is, I believe it just be secondary to something the Magisters have in mind. A lot has been built around Saradomin in this story. Death of Chivalry is required, but I'm sure that's just because it was his Sixth Age quest. But then One of a Kind talks about Teragard, Kalibath from Hero's Welcome specifically wants to kill Saradomin, Kindred Spirits tested Saradominist faith, which Verac betrayed, and now Tales of Nomad makes it clear that Nomad has very good reason to hate Saradomin.

I hope that a lot of the Endgame ties up what's going on with Saradomin. So much of the story has been happening around him, but he's only had The World Wakes, The Battle of Lumbridge, and Death of Chivalry.

I thought Mod Raven said something along the lines that it wouldn't be a character they made up just for the role of Sliske's master? And in a podcast about Kindred Spirits, Osborne said something like they had been planning this since The World Wakes. So my guess of the master is someone we at least knew about before, during, or after The World Wakes, but they absolutely had to have been before Kindred Spirits. Oreb is just too recent. While he would make sense in some ways, he's just too sudden for my liking.

So in very board terms, Sliske's master could be…

- A Dragonkin
- A Magister
- Either an Elder God or someone working for them

And I do believe that Osborne was grasping at straws, although he would certainly be basing it off of things that make sense. Though I do realize that, if Ikov has an allegiance to Armadyl, it wouldn't make sense for him to align with Sliske about this, and if Ikov is a Magister, then he'd also be split between Saradomin and Armadyl. Would a Magister go against Saradomin? They did talk in the Lore Corner about how the Magisters worship an image of Saradomin, and that image is likely totally different from Saradomin as he actually is. So a Magister could potentially see Saradomin for who he really is and get disillusioned.

Ooh, that's a good point. I wonder if Sliske and/or his master have something against those two in particular? I mean, it is a bit random that Sliske took the Empyrean Citadel. We don't know how the other gods were lured in Missing, Presumed Death, but we did see him trying to pit Saradomin against Seren. And when Sliske invited Vorago, Sliske immediately hints that he'll try to "kill a bird with two stones."

I've typically thought that when the master asked "This will bring them?", they meant all of the gods, which is why Sliske responded as he did. I believe it's going to be more specific, and Sliske and his master are trying to push Saradomin and Armadyl into fighting each other. Goutbones might just get his wish after all.
