Are we talking about cutting off the main feathers on a wing, and them growing back like people do to pet birds, or are we talking about Good Ol' Fashion Saradomin Wing-Rippings?

Spoiler: Dimenson of the Damned is a dimension where Saradomin won the SoJ, so now he's using it and the wand of resurrection to it's fullest. Reason it takes place in falador is because it's supposed to be the white knights going "Oh shit, we dun goofed!"


What Saradomin did to Garlandia, in essence.

And wot. The wand has other effects, not sure where you came up with this.

Called it! I knew the 'domin' in his name couldn't be a coincidence with him choosing the name New 'Domin'a. I even postulated that his god name came about from a mispronunciation/morphing of Sar (or Tsar) of Domina and that Domina was where he had been born or ruled prior to ascending.

Wish I could find the thread I originally posted that theory on. Regardless, I feel vindicated.

So was execution by guillotine at one point in our history. Forgive me if I don't forgive him for that.

Love how they're still pushing this Bandosian stuff when they essentially cut the head off that storyline.


Then smashed it in with a mace.

All the new stuff about chakras and the planes and all that is interesting. It seems like they're trying to build a consistent universe out of the hodgepodge we've had for years, which is nice.
Headcanon Haven, where everything is made up and the points don't matter.

It's Paladin, stupid trolling is what he does.

Interesting Bandosian stuff, but man it just feels pointless given how the Bandosians got tossed aside.

Mate you can't follow Zaros and try to judge people for morally repugnant actions, it just makes you a hypocrite.

Sure you can...as long as you aren't following Zaros out of "moral superiority". Saradomin has some better qualities, such as his willingness to fight alongside his troops, his wit, his general ability to think ahead, and his combative leadership...but as a moral figure he's a fucking failure, which is pretty detrimental considering his appeal is supposed to be morality.

Of course, he's not alone in this. Pretty much every God seems to be a hypocrite to their actual philosophy. Bandos isn't a fighter, Armadyl's a war hawk, Zamorak's a pushover with a bleeding heart, Guthix is arguably the most unbalanced God, and Zaros doesn't really follow his own philosophy, which is funny because it's not a philosophy at all.

At this point following a God seems stupid--and no I'm not advocating that we join the Godless nudist colony, but if you're going to join a faction you should do it for the ideology. If you do it for the God, you're going to be disappointed assuming you haven't chosen to be willingly blind.
Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

Pretty sure it'll end up being Nomad.

I wouldn't be surprised if he also somehow got ahold of a piece of the stone, as well.


HES GONNA BE AROUND FOREVER (Also, I didn't see that slide, do you have a link?)


Huh, looks like it doesn't actually show up on the recording! But I was there, and I can tell you, it was there (and I think at least one of my friends there got a picture of it too).

It was right at the end of the "where are they now" section, just after Mod Raven revealed his secret identity as a dragonkin. Didn't reveal anything so much as it was just Sliske, Nomad, and a big ole question mark. More than enough to get the crowd going "OHHHHHH" though, heh. Then Raven went "how did that slide get there" and quickly moved on.

(7:11:06 on the full Circus stage recording -- https://www.youtube.com/3OnkP2Lwdig?t=7h11m06s -- not sure whether that was genuinely unintentional or just them being cheeky, they did have a laugh about it)

So yeah, my immediate thought was NOMAD'S GOT THE SIPHON (because he's got the Siphon dammit), but there's a lot more in the way of aftereffects from Sliske than that. He's full-on undead now, for one. Part-World Guardian too, for another. There's no way that isn't gonna come up in future. Definitely no way now that they're teasing it like that. Cheeky.

Yes, yes I can. I can condemn somebody for their repugnant actions and still applaud them for their other views and actions.

It's like voting for a politician because you agree with them on a large chunk of things. You can still hold their feet to the fire when they try to do something you disagree with. It's something you have to do out of necessity since nobody is going to share 100% of your world views other than you.

I like Saradomin, but I'm not just gonna forget about Garlandia and Naragun. Similarly, I like Zaros, but I'm not gonna forget about the methods by which he made the Icyene and the civil rights violations in the Empire.

I just find the difference between them to be thus: Saradomin acknowledges his mistakes, wants to stop making them for the right reasons, but has difficulty following through on that; Zaros acknowledge his mistakes, only considers them mistakes worthy of correcting for the wrong reasons, but has actually appeared to follow through on that so far.
