I've beat this like a dead horse, but I really can't see Lucien as 7,500. That is INCREDIBLY young and just unrealistic...not to mention, I think the Dragonkin were at 18,000? There's no way of that can be canon.

And maybe this is just bias, but I have a difficult time seeing Moia as older than Khazard...and I could have sworn she said her mother was in the Fourth Age? But I could be wrong there.
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.

Accurate or inaccurate, Lucien's age can't be an indication of the other Mahjarrat, because it's so varied. If we were talking about mortal beings like Aviansie, then that would make sense, but Mahjarrat are immortal and keep reseting their "age". I'm sure there are some Mahjarrat that are around 7,500, but that's the absolute youngest I could imagine aside from Khazard and it would just be downright odd if they were all around that age. I imagine some of the younger ones are 7,500-8,500 while some middle age Mahjarrat are 20,000-30,000, and some of the older ones could ranged between 100,000-300,000. And the oldest of them could only a couple decades younger than Zaros and Seren depending on the timeline.

I thought moia was only 500 years old... khazard's almost certainly older unless mahjarrat pregnancies last a few thousand years after the mother's death

the dragonkin are from before this world, so they could be pretty old

I dont think top trumps is very accurate though


Well she was just cited as being 5,800 years old and being born during the middle of the 3rd age...while Khazard was born at the end of it. ...That really sounds iffy, doesn't it?

Worth noting that in fantasy settings, worlds and universes tends to be far younger than they are in real life, because creation myths are true.


True, but they didn't create sentient life. How long did it take for all of these species to evolve from non-sentient life? Hundreds of years? Thousands? Millions?

Wouldn't surprise me if they naturally lived to be 2000+. At this rate it sounds like the long-lived races are the majority, which is why the Gielinor Wars can last so long.

To be fair, J Mods also talk about his life in Frenesake so....yeah Trump Cards just suck. Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain.
