By your logic, since Zamorak can throw fireballs, Zamorak must be the God of Fire :o


On a side note, I wonder how Elidinis was planning to use Aragyna's Veil? The spider said the veil was capable of creating powerful illusions to anyone that wears it, probably even a Goddess like Elidinis.

Elidinis said she wanted to use the veil to sneak into Gielinor to see her children again, but she cannot because she was banished by Guthix. According to her, Guthix despised her because she was a god. Because of "what he saw when he looked at me," i.e., a tyrannical overpowered being subjugating their will on poor mortals, and I won't disagree with Guthix. Elidinis just exterminated a race of spiders for their beliefs...

But there would still be a barrier around the planet she would have to get pass... And now that that barrier is gone, she still hasn't returned... HMMM....


I got the impression that she'd heard of the veil and wanted to use it to see her children again, living a fantasy where she was still with them, not to sneak into Gielinor or something. Of course that dream shatters when she finds out the illusion doesn't affect herself. You could be on to something though, she could already be here and we just can't see her.

The title might have been clickbait but the idea that certain gods have unique powers could be interesting. The gods may all have been mortal, but I'm not a fan of "standardising" them. It's far more interesting if they have unique powers and abilities (as a result of their different origins, experiences or knowledge). I'd certainly favour Tumeken having special connection to the sun over him just liking to use fire magic. Maybe some gods can specialise in elemental manipulation (creating a storm would be different from being able to control existing ones), while others are good at telekinesis or transfiguration. It's a bit boring if they can all do the same stuff.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

I thought the veil changed the perception of how people saw YOU. :o That's why Aragnya made it.:P She was crippled and no spider wanted to mate with her. After everyone saw the crippled spiders she bore (because there is no way she could hide "thousands" of spiders under that one veil), they killed her and dared not remove the veil. 0078 says they still see Aragnya as "beautiful" to this day. Elidinis was also planning to use the veil to conceal "what he [Guthix] saw when he looked at me" (a god).


Yes the veil changes how people see you, not hot you see yourself, but Elidinis didn't know that. She'd only heard of its ability to "change reality" and wanted to use it to see her children again. Unfortunately, the arachnid poitns out that that isn't how it works.

But do you see? You desire the Veil so that you can change your reality and bring back your family, but that's not how it works. Aragnya was beautiful in the gaze of others, but when she looked at her reflection in the water, the cripple hung before her. Your reality will change for everyone else, but not for you.'

And I don't see anything implying she'd use it to "sneak back in", which isn't how the edicts work anyway. Guthix is asleep, she'd be trying to "fool" a spell.

. . . Their names were literally numbers . . .


On that note, why did Aragnya have a proper name then? (or conversely why is 0078 have a number since they're he only 2 named individuals)


They could have some sort caste system. Maybe some of them aren't allowed to have names. Alternatively, maybe Aragnya was from a time when they did have names, or maybe she was given one due to her infamy. Might be a curse word or something, similar to how Arrav got his name.
