Why would Sliske ally himself with Oreb? To escape Death. Sliske's desire is a simple one, he wants to live, or at least exist, forever. After all, on death he ceases to exist. Oreb has unparalleled knowledge when it comes to the manipulation of the soul. And while his physical body was killed by Nomad years ago, it is incredibly likely that he found out how to transfer his soul to someone else.


Strange. I don't doubt Oreb possessing someone else is impossible (guy had a theory on it and all that), but from my understanding in order for that to happen he needs a suitable host for that sort of thing to work. Kinda hard to prove if he was successful or not since we don't have as good grip on his personality as we do for Sliske yet...

But I think it's more plausible that Oreb is still stuck in the underworld as that sinister presence or whatever we saw during Tales of Nomad and is trying to get out. It would still fit in with the possessing the body of a god thing, but something tells me maybe taking over Nomad might be easier since he's dead or badly beaten depending on your choices. And in Sliske's grasp. That's a far easier body to get to compared to Saradomin, and with the Catalyst and Siphon both in Sliske's possession I can see ascension being a tad easier too once he's ready to go.

Now I think of it, I also vaguely remember hearing Jagex toss the idea around of a new(ish?) god ascending sometime during the Sixth Age around the time it all started. If that's still on the cards, maybe this is it?

^ But is it even possible to possess a god to begin with? Way I look at it, between the compatible soul/vessel aspect of transferring a soul to one and the fact that gods aren't exactly normal beings due to their divine nature, the idea of going after an existing god (much less one that's probably stronger than you to begin with) seems a bit of an unnecessary risk compared to taking over an existing mortal body and siphoning the power from the other gods once you're in.

And even if it is possible, Oreb strikes me as the type to not show his hand by blatantly trying to take over a major god like that unless it was a sure thing that he can get away with it. Which so far seems unlikely to me until we know more about the nature or Sliske's endgame O_o
