I'm going to say we are the ones who told Guthix he would die.

Because it supports my theory that we made us the next World Guardian.

(Also, the fact that Jagex retconned in us not being the first World Guardian is trash. Who approved this?)


Honestly I prefer it. There's been too much nonsense recently about how much of a special snowflake we are ("you're special laddie" ), which is incredibly tiring because it's the same in literally every other game. It's cliché. This makes the World Guardian title have more meaning IMO, because there's actual history behind it instead of something Guthix just pulled out of nowhere the moment he died.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

As for the rapid aging bit, none of the gods appeared to age rapidly when their divinity was suppressed in the maze during Sliske's Endgame and they were rendered mortal. So that's the least of your concerns.


Saradomin did. It was implied he'd die of old age if he didn't regain his immortality.

I can literally feel my body ageing, disintegrating with each passing moment, and there is nothing I can do to prevent it. Millennia of borrowed time are catching up to me. If I cannot reclaim what is lost, I shall succumb to death, and I shall be no more.

How odd. Armadyl made no comment about aging, yet Aviansie are meant to have about the same lifespan as a human. Granted, Saradomin's been a god for far longer than Armadyl has, but both have been gods for far longer than the average lifespan of their respective races.


Maybe Saradomin doesn't just look like an old man because he likes the look? He ascended gradually, through prolonged exposure, rather than in an instant like some of the other gods. Armadyl probably ascended in his prime, while Saradomin could have gradually aged slower before eventually gaining biological immortality. At that point his powers would have been the main thing holding him together.

Even if that's not the case it's still worth noting that Saradomin is older, and Armadyl was moulting, so it's possible he'd feel similar effects later.


Of course, the Doylist answer is probably that it's because he's the only one that looks like an old man...
