If you haven't done the Menaphos Quests, then probably none of this will make sense to you.
Also, I'm probably going to gloss over this really lightly, and stick 169 of the 5th age, and the early 6th.

~~~~

Basically, 169 of the 5th age: We free all of the Minor Desert Gods from Amascut's curse, save Scabaras who is in hiding, and may or may not have been corrupted by Amascut.

The Pharaoh plans on killing the Facets and attaining Godhood himself.
Pharaoh is killed.

Het tells us that he, Crondis, and Apmeken are looking for Scabaras, and hopes that you will stand with them when the time comes to confront Amascut.

Amascut preforms ritual with the Kharid-ib on the Soul Altar.
Tumekin speaks to her.

(Mod Rowley confirmed on Twitter that all Menaphos quests are 5th Age)

*BOOM*
~6th Age~
Tuska went ded

Icthlarin vs. Amascut in the Gauntlet of Souls

Nomad's Requiem

Sliske's Endgame

~~~~

So... Where will confronting Amascut appear on the timeline? What do you guys think?

I would advise adding a few machetes to the thicket.

Amascut opens the tombs below Menaphos to search for Tumeken (which means that he still exists in some form). She already holds the Kharid-ib (which means that it is not Tumeken, though maybe somehow a piece of his return).

When Amascut is attempting to acquire the Kharid-ib, Scabaras interferes with her plans, meaning that he is aware of what's going on; this leads me to believe that he may not have been corrupted, but maybe he has been since.

I am almost certain Scabaras will be corrupted and that part will probably take place in the 5th age.

I am not sure we can really consider Icthlarin vs. Amascut in the Gauntlet of Souls canon to the lore, as it was fan thought of and didn't really have much lore, that we didn't already know and it could have easily taken place in the 5th age, even though we were in the 6th age.

I am not sure why Amascut has been involved with the 6th Age as much, but it is unlikely that we will kill her, as least I hope we don't. I would love to see her return to normal after her father returns.

That being said, I think the fight with Amascut will be in the 6th Age and we will probably have aid from Elidinis and Tumeken. Now I haven't finished the last quest yet, so I can't say for sure 100% as i don't know what she says. Plus I am not sure Amascut can be killed.

Amascut would also make a great ally in the battle against the Elder Gods if she has made contact with Mah and lived.

I don't know about you guys, but I am tired of seeing the bad guys die because they are bad. As if they can't change. And I really think Amascut can be healed to how she was before she met Mah, Mahjarrat and the death of her father.


So to summarize:

~ Scabaras will be corrupted in the 5th Age and we heal him.
~ The four aspects of Tumeken will be gathered and then Amascut will capture them at the end of the quest.
~ Time goes on and the Edicts fall.
~ Amascut tries to do whatever she is doing.
~ Ictharin will plead for his mother to return and Elidinis will return.
~ If we aren't already with them, they will ask us for help.
~ Amascut battle takes place at the very start of the 6th Age with the help of Elidinis and Tumekin
~ Amascut takes time to recover from her madness which is why she hasn't been in the 6th Age Quests.

This could happen late or early in the 6th age, but they need to explain why Amascut didn't have a part in the Nomad Quest. I just hope it isn't because we killed her in the 5th
Come the Sixth-Age, the world will need the World Guardian.

Gauntlet of Souls is canon. It's 6th age, because it involves Souls leaking out of Tuska's body.

Icy, I would do a little more research on lore, if I were you.

I will admit that I am a little rusty on desert lore, but for the most part, I don't think I need to do research. I know a good amount of things, but I did most of the desert quests when I didn't care about lore.

This is speculation not what is going to happen it would help if you told me what I was wrong on though.

I can't remember anything about the Gauntlet of Souls because it was such a terrible event.

I know Amascut wants to destroy everything, but I think it is more than just that. I also know that she became obsessed with destruction after they went to Freniskae. But I think the death of her father had something to do with that. Or at least at one point it did.

Oh I'd say the Kharid-Ib is most definitely Tumeken, or rather a part of him. In Egyptian mythology the soul was divided into several parts, one of them being the "Ib", the heart. That would make the Kharid-Ib quite literally the "Heart of the Sun". We also know that the aspects collectively make up the "Ba" of Tumeken, his personality.

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.

It is. See: Final Scene from 'Phite Club
