So, I've been going through things and have come across a few oddities within the Lore. During the quest Ghosts Ahoy, we are told Necrovarious was a priest who Journeyed to Morytania from the Eastern Lands by Valorinia. During the quest we have to aquire a translation manual, which we get from the Eastern Lands trader Ak-Haranu.

Now, Ak-Haranu sells bolt racks, which are an ammo from the Eastern Lands, and are used by Karil's Crossbow, Karil being one of the original Barrows Brothers. The last point at which the Brothers were alive was during their march on Morytania during the God Wars, after the fall of Zaros's empire, yet before the scouring of Fortrinthy.

This shows there was trade with the Eastern Lands at some point either before or during the God Wars. So at this point I am curious if we will get more explination and information as to the state of the Eastern Lands during the God Wars.

So, feedback. What do you all think the story behind it is, and do you think we will get more information in coming times.

From the official lore story "The Fall of Six" -

"they desired to be the best of all men, and the stranger had promised them this, for he knew power and could grant it. His long years had taken him to many distant lands where he had collected much arcane knowledge and many artefacts of value and strength, and it was those very weapons and armours he had given them, that they now wielded, which granted them their desire."

Their weapons and armor were given to them by the stranger. (Since then we have learned the stranger's identity, but I'll leave it undisclosed on the off chance you don't know.) It mentions how he'd been to many distant lands and collected many artifacts of value and strength. Perhaps one of those distant lands was the Eastern Lands, and that's where he got Karil's set? (Or at least, Karil's crossbow, if not the whole armor set.) His armor set in particular *does* have a vague ninja look to it...

That stranger we know to be Sliske, so that tells us at least one of the Mahjaratt made it to the Eastern Lands. In the story Tale of the Six, he shows up as a hooded figure, with the Brothers being put on edge upon sight of him, which was something never before seen by those surrounding the Brothers.

I would imagine Sliske did go to the Eastern Lands before, or at least took the Barrows armour which may have originally come from the Eastern Lands as shipments from Zarosian incursions. Prepare for hell on RuneScape in Naval Cataclysm!
