Yet we saw the first people arriving on Gielinor and helped some later on in the first Age, changing their fate, Other than Guthix, technically we were here first. Some of thn stuff we've managed is enough for even Sliske's mind to blow a gasket.:P

Who is to say that Sliske didn't see mentions of us from long before he arrived. And if out name kept cropping up....well that's enough to give anyone would be egomaniac(?) a complex.

Good point. Can't remember if we gave our name to those First Age settlers in Meeting History, but they might'v* recorded our visit.

We did, kind of:

Player:
Hello, Sarah, how's things?
Sarah:
Very good, actually. For starters, I'm engaged to be married to a traveller who was passing by. Secondly, I've started an interesting study into plants and how they can be made into potions and medicines.
Player:
Herblore.
Sarah:
Herblore? Hmm, that's the perfect name for the discipline. From now on I will call it 'Herblore'!
Player:
Nah. You should probably call it '[Adventurer]'s lore'.
Sarah:
I think I'll stick with Herblore, thanks.

If Sarah recorded our name, this might be the reason why there are references to us from before we were born. Either that or Xau-Tak is omniscient.
Interesting indeed, though I feel like we would've heard it mentioned to us by now, if that were recorded. Besides, she did say no afterall, remember? :P

I love this thread.

Remember when Azzy said that Sliske's works are seen in the smallest of the world's events? What if the entire Runescape storyline we have come to know is simply the work of Sliske trying to fulfill the prophecy? Every quest we have been on, every problem we have had to solve, every destiny-shaping choice we have had to make was simply the the puppeteer nudges of Sliske? In essence, what if Sliske has essentially forged us into the heroes he envisioned us to be for thousands of years? What if our naming was essentially a chance occurrence that matched the prophecy, and everything we have risen to be and accomplished were really the result of Sliske's actions behind the scenes? A bit of worldwide self-fulfilling prophecy? It is as if Sliske is the playwright of the world's greatest and most complex play, and he is writing it in real-time, one World Guardian's move at a time...
Now THAT would be interesting.. though I doubt it to be true. Mainly because Sliske is a control freak, and there are far too many variables in the world for him to account for.
Plot twist: Sliske is Player Character's father.

OR in a future quest we use the enchanted key to go back in time to kill Xau-tak, hence why we have not seen it in game but only heard of it, and why Xau-tak would know of us in the past.


Also, I'd like to add that all the mahjarrat seem obsessed with following a god, mainly Zaros or Zamorak. Given how other Zarosians thought Sliske worked mostly independenty pre-Fot*, and now he seems to be totally independent in post-Fotg (I guess he has a new master though), perhaps Sliske treats us as a deity to obsess over?

The Enchanted Key disappears after you get all the post-quest rewards from it, I think.

But if you lose your mjolnirs, you can get a new one.

Incidentally the enchanted key is just another manifestation of Sliske's consciousness, specifically his desire to impact the course of history.

I don't think it's so much a fawn-over-the-godlike-mortal as it simply is that he knows we're a major player in the world and it just excites him greatly to play us like a fiddle. This, of course, being before the events of TWW, where we still may have been a player on the world's stage - we just lacked the special snowflake status at the time.

Judging by his Ramblings, the fact we were given power by Guthix seems like a variable he wasn't exactly expecting (mentioning how we are an "agent of upheaval" that he "would never have dreamed of"). I have to imagine that when this went down, his already-piqued interest in us was cranked-up to eleven, since it just gives us something else with which he wants to play.
