Are there any regions on Gielinor—other than the sky, which we own completely through citadels ;) —that are own by the armadylean faction?

According to this wiki map Armadyl owns no land :c

I want to say the area between and including the Hemenster region, Camelot, Temple of Ikov, and Rellekka lighthouse are all places Armadylean religion seems to appear.


Temple of Ikov: obviously armadylean
Seer's Courthouse: has armadylean symbols everywhere.
Rellekka lighthouse: Larissa, the lighthouse keeper is Armadylean (I wonder where she was born?)
Camelot: I'm just assuming this place is Armadylean due to their proximity to the Seer courthouse, but it makes sort of sense...Knights of the Round Table and their theme of truth, justice, unity, etc.
McGrubor Wood: whoever McGrubor is, I am pretty sure he is aware of the trapdoor in the house in the woods that leads directly to the Guardian of Armadyl base.
Hemenster:I just want this region to be Armadylean. lol

King Arthur is described in King's Ransom as a "great supporter of the White Knights" (which is why the Kinshra are very proud of having captured him). Camelot Castle has a Saradomin altar. The stone heads in One of a Kind make reference to knights of Saradomin. "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you[...]For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?

The issue with trying to locate previously or even current Armadylian territories is that he spent a very large time on Gielinor allied up with Saradomin, which means that their territories were likely somewhat blended together with the exception of a few specific areas (ex: the citadels for Armadyl and Hallowvale/Entrana for Saradomin).

Heck, even the Temple of Ikov exhibits characteristics of this blending given the presence of the Fire Warrior of Lesarkus and the new information that Lesarkus is one of the Teragardian magisters.

And given that the Armadylian religion largely died out (likely due to a combination of Armadyl favoring the Aviansie and the mixture of their territories leading to humans defaulting to the more popular religion over time in the absence of their gods), current Armadylian territories are even more difficult to find (like how clans have taken control of most of the old Armadylian citadels).

Acknowledging that, I'd expect that the Courthouse is more a case of humans in the ex-Saradominist-Armadylian territories attributing his symbol with justice (much like they basically turned Zamorak into Satan) than it is a case of the modern practice of the Armadylian religion.

During the Second Age and the God Wars, Armadyl likely did control a significant portion of eastern Kandarin - more specifically the area between White Wolf and Hemenster at least. The Fremennik Province was obviously under the protection of V at the time. While Bandos likely held the Feldip Hills, Western Kandarin is pretty much a mystery. You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

Not really. The courthouse is on Guthixian land, Camelot is Saradominist since the land belongs to Lathas family and is only being loaned. Heck, Armadyl doesn't really have a claim to the sky anymore either since Sliske and RS Clans stole his citadels from him. Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

It should be noted that the Lesarkus connection has not been fully explained, and by design. That is one of the more interesting new lore reveals, IMO.

Also, you forgot the tower he built, but that was recent.

P.S. Agree about Hemenster! It has to be my favourite city on Gielinor. So peaceful, even the vyre!

I don't think we can really include Camelot in this. As they were likely not around. They came from our world in the Fifth Age, but I can't completely remember when.

The elves owned a great amount of land during the fourth age before everything went to hell for them, including mostly all of Kandarin and even tried Feldip Hills I think, but they couldn't get an alliance formed between them and the ogres and goblins in the region.


Temple of Ikov, McGrubbors Woods, Waterfall, Light House, Hemenster and the Ranged Guild probably were all Armadyl at one point.

We know Temple of Ikov is, Temple of Ikov was built in honor of a very powerful Armadylian, and I think Mod Raven confirmed that. Ikov may be Armadyl's mother.
Come the Sixth-Age, the world will need the World Guardian.

It's being moved in an upcoming update, since it doesn't really fit in Seers' Village. I think the plan was to move it somewhere near Falador? So the prospect of the Saradominists sort of absorbing Armadylean ideals still stands in that respect.

It's getting connected to Camelot castle. So still in Seer's Village.
The legendary creators have been long gone from this world. When they return, they'll be surprised and angered of their creations' new sapience. Meanwhile, the world's most elite, summoned to be its guardians, have abandoned their purpose and intend to plunge the world into chaos. -- Bionicle or RS?

Ahh, thanks for the correction there, hahah. The prospect of moving it somewhere else was raised IIRC, but yep, just checked the thread where the current state of the rework's been posted.

Well, that makes it a bit of a grey area. I suppose it would still be "the Seers' Village courthouse", but it's now decidedly more in Camelot territory, and Camelot is... Camelot. Guess that renders this particular line of discussion a bit of a moot point for now, heh.
