So after 5 years, we finally know who the god is who's name is on the map as well as the Karamja Pantheon.

There are 3 members:
Kharazi
Shaika
Raharni

Note: Read Hguoh's post on Page 2 who gives a very clear summary of the book.


They seem to have gotten their power after they had died from a plague which was caused by tribesman. When Gara-Dul finally decided to died, it laid on top of their graves and the three gods were fully reborn with their skin and everything. I am going to assume this is when they became gods.


The book seems to take place on another planet apart from Gelinor. When they were revived, they vowed to find a new home, which I am going to assume was Karamja. The reason I think this is because it says "Where the Suns were 2", Gelinor only has 1 sun I believe. I don't think there is anywhere that states it has more than 1.


So what do you all think? I may have missed stuff in the book, but I am so glad they finally revealed the Karamja Pantheon and the fact that me and I think a few others were correct with Kharazi being the god's name that was on the map back when the Sixth Age first started.
Come the Sixth-Age, the world will need the World Guardian.

Oh like I said, I may have read things wrong. I thought he husband and daughter thing was for the Gara.

I read the book very quickly and well half awake still. But that does indeed sounds better. I actually like the idea even more than they are a family.

Yeah I read it wrong. I was thinking Gara had a family, but I was getting it and the others mixed up because I misread the first few passages.

So to fix what I said, there was only 1 God Beast which was Gara. It dug the graves for the Karamja Pantheon after they died. After centuries, it chose to die and when it did, and laid on the graves of the three and its mana, or I guess anima, seeped into the ground and gave life to the Pantheon once more as if they had never died or succumbed to the plague.

It says when the mana seeped through, it lit torches in the spirit world and created a path to Hangazha, which I am going to assume is the world they are on, it allowed the three to find their bodies and then they became god and goddesses.

Gara-Dul didn't kill them, the tribespeople who came to kill it did by spreading the plague to them. Gara-Dul apparently had nothing to do with the plague, since the trio were fine until the tribespeople showed up.

The trio are obviously connected to the Shaikahan, Raharni wildcat and Kharazi jungle. They may also have connections with the three types of Broodoo victims and maybe Raharni is connected to the Jade Vine.
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

Original message details are unavailable.
Centuries passed. Without the last bridge, Gara-Dul's island drifted


Did the early Karamjan's live on the continent, and on Skylands?

For the second sun, do you guys think they're from a different plane origionally (given the name of their afterlife is named differently) or is it something like Tumekin's power was just that great at the time, and he manifested himself as a bright light in the sky as a show of power, given that Karamja is somewhat near the desert?

so an interesting bunch of lore. Might need to read it over a few times but from what i'm getting is there are 3 karamjan gods and some kind of "god beast" they went out to slay? Did they get godhood from killing it, if so was there some elder artifact involved in this that i missed reading it? Also i might have got this wrong, but am i to understand these idols are in the image of this beast? Also this does now bring into question who are the tribal totems around the jungle like in tai bow wanni

Khazari was an easy guess that everyone pretty much figured out but its interesting they also have raharni and shaika. The raharni wildcats are the species they've been introducing recently which apparently skill capes are made out of. Also shaika clearly has some connection to the shaikahn from that really old jungle quest. Whats interesting is raharni and shaika seem to be felines if their connections are anything to go by, so i'm thinking this might be the same place armadyl mentioned in endgame about a dying world with singing felines. So assuming that, we know it has 2 suns and atleast 1 of them is dying off

Now i had once theorised that this feline world was also the location of the werewolf home world because they're both anthropomorphic animal clans. So we could consider the fact we dont know what species khazari is but the khazari jungle is notable for having alot of jungle wolves. Clearly we'll need more info on khazari but at the very least i'm thinking the other 2 are from the feline clan armadyl spoke of. Heck i think the end of the book even mentions the tribal clan had songs of some sort

Kinda surprised they didnt make marimbo a part of the pantheon cus ape atoll is very close to karamja and already jungle themed, would of been an easy way to flesh out the numbers

No, the trio protected Gara-Dul and were killed by a group of tribesmen that blamed it for their plague. Some time later, Gara-Dul decided to die, and gave its energy to the deceased trio, turning them into gods.

Ok theres a little snag with the beast just "handing over its godhood". I once asked the mods about that possibility of a god just giving up its godhood but raven said they cant just do that. So unless they've changed their mind, only an elder artifact being used somewhere in this story would transfer the godhood
