I did desperate times quest a while back

as you all know,
kerapac runs off at the end of the quest. we are supposed to find him on anachronia in the future now.

well that's great and all, but today I just did the curse of the black stone quest. and then I found kerapac as if nothing happened. in his older model too. I would have done this quest before, but I didn't even realize it existed because the quest was not mentioned in any update.

so I am confused, how did I find kerapac after he ran away to anachronia, and then turned back into his old look? did jagex forget to set a quest requirement to desperate times?


also the magister oreb wrote in a journal I found I have killed him many times. I don't even have the slayer level to fight him... what's going on did I enter a time machine or something


this is really racking my lore brain right now, please explain

ya it would, this is basically the first quest in history that you can do out of chronologically required order that doesn't explicitly mention the previous quest as a recommendation to do prior

what happens if kerapac dies in a future quest and you do this one after? just oh hey he's back again don't worry about it. nah it sounds like an oversight the least they could do is mention it occurs chronologically after it. I already seen him turn into sonic the hedgehog but here he's gray again this is breaking my immersion

where's this mentioned? usually they say do x quests to fully appreciate the quest or whatever


They first mentioned it in a livestream, then went on to talk about it in Runefest 2018:

"We don't have a policy on this but Jack is very much in favour of not having quests require other quests. We have a clear example right now with Sliske's Endgame, which still not many people have completed. It makes huge changes to the plot, the world is going to be a different place after Sliske's Endgame, so do we restrict the story moving forward? People ask us when is 6th age moving forward, part of the problem is it's locked behind a quest that requires almost every other quest in the game. This is why The World Wakes had the soft and hard quest requirements. So are we going to do a repeat of The World Wakes model, or change our policy on quest requirements entirely."

but where do they mention that this specific quest comes chronologically before the other? there is no reference in game to even suggest this and it feels like an oversight. the least they could do is say that htis chornologically happens before desperate times, instead there is nothing to suggest htis other than the content of the quest

As this thread is asking for clarification on lore, it has been moved to the RuneScape Lore Discussion Forum.

i think this is clarification about a jagex oversight, not about the lore. it is clear that these should be noted in game that they occur in chronological order but are not. please move out of this dead forum that gets no traffic and has nothin to do with the actual issue at hand
