You're telling me RuneScape gold this random god Tumeken who's potent enough to make lesser gods at will just started exploring the desert, seen a monkey and said"you are a god now"? I don't purchase it, and I buy it even less that Tumeken could be so potent and yet his presence be unrelated to the existence of the elder god artifact within his domain. Would Jagex even aim to get a elder god artifact in the desert if it wasn't/has played some type of role.
The story of the desert pantheon sound what I would think something known as the template would do. He found beings like a monkey or crocodile and used them as literal templates, through the"Template", to make gods. Why the production stories are inconsistent since none of them knew the way the creation worked That is, they know the maker and the base ingredient then just made up the rest of the details. In reality there is only a great deal the world's real history.
Like obviously something is up here by contradicting histories, and while part of it I believe is to simulate the mysteries brought about. I can not help but believe there's a truth hidden amongst these contradictions and oddities. Is the heart of gielinor (or some thing there) not a viable competitor for the template? As a way to enact the revision that was fantastic, in the desert, large supply absorbed. Telos was made by the god. I hate it to be authentic as it seems as though it has been too long since it's launch but there's only so much stuff in the desert.
The senior god artifacts exist to create planes and were eventually mostly phased out, Gielinor's Heart does not appear to match that. Given it's nature it seems to only be a massive quantity of anima so I would sooner suspect this is the"main route" if you may. The planet which will be feasted upon by the older god's children's delicious anima that is the yok. However I really could believe they used the template with the heart so as to make its guardian Telos.
It simply seems the desert includes a LOT of items BUT Tumeken who are gods or god-like things based on things that are existing. Elidnis and the river, Amascut and cats, Icythlarin and dogs, Scabaras and Scarabs, Crondis and Crocodiles, Apmeken and Monkeys, Het and people, as you pointed out Telos and the heart is another one. Heck even Amascut somehow created 3 corruptive spirits employing voice, the sight, and hearing of Apmeken and proceeded.
That reminds me there's another constant theme where it seems the beings are connected and cause a feedback affect, like. The center and telos, Elidnis along with the river of the desert monkeys lost one of their senses when Apmeken failed, the crocodiles became greedy when Crondis did, and when Het had been missing humans started to have poor health. So this is my concept.
The template is a classic artifact that may use a couple of to produce. The template will be for taking the elements of items they wanted and combining them to make something new where the mirror was for replicating things.
I am skeptical, to create Elidnis in the river although the template has been used by somebody, possibly Tumeken. Perhaps nobody used it even perhaps the artifact just kind of was running and created its own thing. He gained control of the template and discovered when Tumeken and Elidnis met. Both cheap School RS Gold wanted kids so that they used part of a dog, a cat, and themselves in the template to create Amascut and Icythlarin. These beings possessed some god-like power but also traits in.
