So, what do Guthix, Skargaroth, and Bandos all have in common?

When they died, their bodies turned gray and became stone.

However, if you go to Tuska's back, you'll see that she obviously doesn't look healthy, but she's still not stone-like at all. Her veins still run with energy and she's still got a purple color.

My theory? It's in the title, you silly people. :P Tuska's still alive. She's clearly injured if she's just laying there motionlessly, but Vorago failed to finish the job. Why else is she not grey and stony like all the other dead gods we've seen?

All I'm saying is, don't celebrate just yet.

EDIT: Mod quote:

So - not everything might be as "set in stone" as you might believe. And.... Stuff ;)

The decision for Tuska to look like she does was deliberate.

I kind of think it's just Jagex being lazy rather than Tuska still being alive, but it would be quite interesting if she was.


That's what I thought too, but then I saw a quote from a mod saying her graphics not changing was intentional. If you'll give me a minute here, I'll go fetch it.

Threw that onto the main post as well.

Possibilities ...
- Loarnab was slowly turned to stone as Zaros used his body to power a portal from Infernus to Gilienor.
We know Tuska's body has a portal on it to Mazcab.
Perhaps Tuska is being used to power the portal in the same horrific way Loarnab was used.

- Tuska is brain dead.
Players poked Tuska thousands of times with energy infused spears.
The Vorago came along and wailed on her with punches and kicks that had a lot of force behind them (really, do the math ... how much force do you think those punches and kicks had with that much mass behind them?)
Oh, then he shot her in the face with a heavy energy beam.
Then she does a planetary entry and crashes into the ocean.
She might have survived all of that ... but you really want to tell me that she's "ok"?

- It's the side effect of all of the other planets she ate
Yes, she is dead, but her body is pulsing with energy that is not her own.
Given how many worlds she has eaten, it may be a long long time before that energy dissipates, even powering a portal to another world.

I've talked to a few people in Scrying Pool and a theory going around is that a god only turns to stone when they become completely void of Anima.

Tuska is dead in spirit, but still seething with Anima from the many worlds she devoured, which may or may not be leaking via/into the portal on her back!

This is a very interesting theory; it's obvious Tuska isn't dead. I wonder what effect this will have on Sliske's game...
