If you could replace and elevate new Guardians to the GoGs ranks (Guardians of Guthix), who would you choose?

Why?

Guarding something specific or a particular role?

What kind of test would they have to pass? Ect. Ect.


Personally I'd consider Sir Owen. Not only might we be able to "balance" his condition rather than cure it. What if he doesn't need curing? But that Wand really does need its own Guardian and a stabilised condition like his may provide a direct link to it. As for a test I think Sir Owen being able to consider the worlds needs over Saradomin's and his followers would do just fine; that and the Guthix test we went though, maybe?

(Well that is basically what Sir Tiffy's lot does, even if there is a steep Saradominist consideration. Otherwise they'd have never come within spiting distance of the Black Knights during Avoid Dance)

What about you?

Nice thread!

I'd definitely pick Zanik as Guardian of the Soul Obelisk. Not much would change there, of course, but hopefully I'd be able to give her more than "a few years" plus some special powers. As for a test, I think she's pretty much auto-passed every test I could throw her way.

Boring answer, I know. The problem is that most of those who would to some extent be suitable Guardians have one or two aspects that really get in the way. Many are too loyal to their own gods or would be unwilling.

Kharshai may be a good candidate. He seems to be one of the few truly neutral Mahjarrat, being to loyal to neither Zamorak nor Zaros, and not being a power-hungry megalomaniac. I don't know what he'd guard, specifically, or what his test should be, though.

I agree that Zanik should be the Guardian of the Soul Obelisk. Nomad's Elegy in particular can be considered her test, and although Icthlarin had offered her the position, Death agreed to nominate her, and as a Guardian of Guthix, Death could have the authority to nominate her as one, especially for a task dealing with the nature of souls.

I'm not sure about Sir Owen, but I'd go for a different Signature Hero: Ariane. We see entities like Vorago and Telos responding to the Anima Mundi being in danger, but I think Ariane should continue to play a part in the Elder God storyline. Heart of Stone could make her a candidate for the Guardian of the Anima Mundi, but future Elder God quests would be her test. If anything, maybe Seren would be the one to judge Ariane about this.

Seren: "Guthix felt that if he could carefully control the flow of Anima Mundi, he could keep the elder gods docile and the world thriving. It wasn't until the younger gods interfered with his plans that this changed. I have no answer now, but perhaps I can find one. Come see me when you learn more about the elder gods, perhaps together we can find a solution."

Zaros's plan to have a more targeted assault on the Elder Gods would very likely inspire Seren to prevent that plan from succeeding. If there were even a hope of salvaging Guthix's plan, Seren may want it. And after Ariane went after Xenia for being careless, there may be more for Ariane to do that might align with this plan. At the very least, restore the flow of the Anima Mundi.

Ariane did spring to mind, yet she seem to be more focused on digging up magical knowledge than anything else. Though she could be set to finding such things and squirreling them out of harms way. The GoG might find that useful. All things magic seems to be her thing, so that is one area that could do with a nosey person seeking out all that is going on. Intelligence gathering?

As for Sir Owen, well his faith did waver a bit in DoC, which is the only reason I considered him at all, that and choosing a fairly harsh test, from a Saradominist's point of view.

The desert certainly seems to lack a watcher and frankly a lot is going on there. A lot of hidden pockets of power and mischief. But would it be worth appointing a desert guardian and who would we put in place? Senliten?

Who exactly is the Old man at the barrows and would they consider keeping an eye on that area? And is it worth it? Frankly I have serious doubts about them.

Though Kami is one entity that might be worth investing in. As they have a somewhat unique view, being a memory wisp colony based on Guthix daughter Aagi. Divination, memories and the flow and its well being would be an ideal thing for them to play watcher for.

Can we just kill all the guardians instead? ...Sorry, sorry, knee-jerk reaction. 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.

A wholesale slaughter and replacement is probably not warranted. Now come on, if you were to add on person of your choosing to the GoG, who would YOU choose and why?

Zanik as Guardians of the Soul Obelisk, Not much would change but at least she would have more blessing into it, like some kind of special abilities.

Vorago as Guardian of the Anima, he might deny it, but he might not.

Telos is an elemental of the elder guard, so I doubt he would be a Guardian as he is just a defense for the elder gods. So he wouldn't count.

if I can, I'd make the Faction of the Godless as Guardian of Mortals, yes all those Godless men as Guardian, not blessed in power, but blessed in knowledge and items.

The truth is, there isn't much I want guarding. Things like the Stone of Jas I want in my posession. The Soul Obelisk...I'd rather leave out in the open and let people fiddle with it, maybe make new discoveries. Objects like the Wand of Ressurection should be destroyed.

Hypothetically, if I could, I'd make it impossible for anyone to enter Gielinor except for a few special entrances...perhaps the World Gate and Daemonheim. B***n and Bilrach seem like good guardian gate keepers in that aspect.

But we do not need Guardians of Guthix...or any Guthixians. I shall wipe out all Guthixians as my excuse to sate my bloodlust way of honoring Guthix.
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.

See that wasn't so hard! And 2 good choices.:)

The suggestion list so far: name/Job

Zanik - Soul Altar
Sir Owen - Wand of Resurrection
Ariane - Anima/Magic
Kharshai - Neutral party
Kami-0 Anima/memory flow/health
Vorago - Gielinor
The Godless faction/ Mortals protection (not empowered just knowledge and items)
Beihn - World Gate
Bilrach - Floor 61 Rift
\chaeldar - Fairy Rings - once known as the Gateway to Gielinor (Jagex hates the letter c!)

I would elevate myself from World Guardian to Universe Guardian.

I'd also probably make Chaeldar the Guardian of the Fairy Rings since they're like an alternative World Gate.
