During World Event 3, we had the spoilers of Tuska coming to eat Runescape!!!
Ofc, Wizard Chambers, an astromancer, detected her coming (thankfully?) and launched a monkey with a lodestone so we could teleport there to deal with the oncoming problem.

Day arrives, and ... there's a war council on Tuska's back. Wizard Chambers has everything set up.

We have an entirely convenient setup to go to war and deal with the problem.
Heck, we even have instructions on HOW to gather anima and means in place to start working (ie: building pylons)

Yet, at the same time, it seems the ONLY people doing anything about Tuska are us adventurers who arrived to find all of this setup.
Where's everyone else?

Well ... you also notice how Wizard Chambers conveniently had a barrier up so everyone could breathe? and not float off into space?

Theory Part 1: manpower
As I mentioned, when the players/adventurers arrive ... everything is setup.
We know what to do.
We just need someone to do it.

I think the 4 factions did have a number of soldiers and artisans there first.
The players were simply "late to the party".

By the time the players/adventurers arrived ............. everyone else was dead and their poor corpses drifting off into the void of space.

The sacrifices weren't in vain.
We, the adventurers, profited with free xp in the most efficient manner since we knew what to do and didn't have to waste another day doing any prep work. We could just dive right into it.

Theory Part 2: Off-screen action
Remember the bug infested meteors that impacted the planet during Tuska's approach?
Remember the Airut that had a foothold off the coast of Piscatoris?

It's possible that additional manpower was diverted to look for these problems.

Perhaps a few meteors fell in remote places and factionally aligned artisans and troops dispersed all over the world to deal with it to prevent new creatures from popping up and causing issues.
Or small parties of Airut phased in somewhere and Slayers and troops dealt with them before players could respond (and those slayers and troops died ... thus no one was able to report what happened).
