Hostilius is dead.


Are you sure about that? I was pretty sure about it myself, but when I said it on reddit Mod Jack started to quote Lovecraft at me.

"That is not dead which can eternal lie."

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.

The master being Death would probably only work about as well as however Strisath got captured. Though wasn't Death captured primarily to bait Icthlarin?

I'm inclined to suggest Saradomin just because he shows up after Sliske killed Guthix. I get that Jagex needed to have somebody show up, and I hope it isn't him, but* that arrival was way too convenient.


That's the thing though. How on earth do you capture personified Death, much less contain it in a mere cage?



He's... Not really the personification of Death though. He's just a guy who's been given the task of severing the link between soul and body, not some cosmic being representing death as a concept. Besides, it's been established that all of his power comes from the scythe.

Yeah I should have said "most" of his power instead of "all", since he obviously has some power without it. Worth mentioning though that his scythe has several blades so he'd still have most of it left even when Cres was working on it (though I felt that whole part was highly metaphysical so it could have been the entire scythe somehow) Regardless, I seem to remember a q&a a while ago that claimed the vast majority of it was in the scythe.


Anyway this reminds me of a theory I had a while ago. In Death's office the stained glass windows depict Guthix giving Death his scythe. Now, this doesn't make much sense, as Harold was already Death before Guthix made him a Guardian of Guthix, and the scythe is vital in his role as it's the tool that severs the link between soul and body.

My theory is that Death's limitation of only being able to take those whose time have come was placed upon him by Guthix to maintian balance. Guthix realised how dangerous an unhinged Death would be that he tied a large portion of his powers to the scythe.

In fact, there's actually dialogue in TWW where Death says that Guthix did in fact bestow a weakness upon him. However, I'm not sure how "canon" that is, because it seems to have been made before the lore that the first person to die becomes Death and appears to imply that Guthix made Harold Death.
