So the Mahjarrat deathstones that appear in Children of Mah are identical to the 'shrines' that need to be worshipped at as one of Sojobo's tasks in the Arc...

What does this mean?

Did Mahjarrat visit, occupy and die in the Eastern Lands?

They're also identical to the cyclops gravestones on Cyclosis.

The Mahjarrat are cyclopes confirmed!?!

It's just Jagex being lazy and reusing assets.
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

The lack of Green suits you. ;)

But no. No they didn't. The mainland is where all the action, godly or otherwise happens. Mahjarrat don't take vacations.

Logical reason : Asset reuse.

Lore reason: People are too cheap to buy anything but default death stones.

Tinfoil hat: They were all built by aliens!


THE MAHJARRAT ARE ALIUMS!!!

magic aliens that have the core of their being inside of a gem

who where brought to this world to save the day against another alien from their homeworld ... that also is a bit gemological but mostly magicky...

Oh man, I missed this thread the first time.

While, yeah, it probably is just asset reuse, I came up with a theory some time ago that Eastern Occultism and Western Ritual Magic are in fact branches of the same discipline, due to their similarities, connection to demonology, and, specifically, how they draw on life essence.

Ritual Circles use Mahjarrat characters, implying they may have originated with the Mahjarrat - or maybe just due to Zamorakian predilections. Anyways, it's a bit out there, but my headcanon was that a Mahjarrat (originally Temekel, though I chose him arbitrarily) created Ritual Magic for use by humans, fled to the east, and founded the Occult.

At any rate, the point is, if they DID want to give those gravestones some significance, the lore is open enough, and enough indicators exist, that they could totally make the headstones a Mahjarrat design.
