Are the pirates currently raiding Port Sarim actually known collectively as 'The Skulls'? Or are the scouts, press-gangers and bosuns just referred to as such because they come from the Skull region of the Eastern Lands (an area rife with pirates and slavers.)–= MEGA Construction Rework =–
Freeform Buildings, Surface World Plots, Community Involvement, Environments, Skills and much, much more...!
I don't know.. Draynor is such a humungusly huge place, that I have an inability to comprehend it's parts, and could very well be missing whole swathes of gangs hiding in the many houses and back alleys of this veritable metropolis.
Yeah I noticed this as well, seems more like an oversight on the concept artists side then anything else.
"The Skulls" Is a pretty child-friendly name for a villain organization to have. I was fine with it when it came to the Draynor Skulls because they were just a wannabe gang, so having a silly name was fitting.
Really hard to take a full-blown pirate organization seriously though when that is their name.Tired of the promotions, dead, temporary and grind content? Support the Deadscape thread.
Runescape may be dying, but unless something is done; it will not die with dignity.
Is Bob the Lumbridge Axe seller related to Bob the Cat? Same first name, so must be right?
No...the names are likely related to various things. The Draynor skulls are a play on words (see Archs post) that also sounds appropriate while the new group is likely based on the location the pirates came from (The Skull Islands) as mentioned before. The only relationship these groups have is the fact they seem dead set on not behaving themselves and being set right by a decent and amiable adventurer who has help."When history witnesses a great change, Razgriz reveals itself... first, as a dark demon. As a demon, it uses its power to rain death upon the land, and then it dies. However, after a period of slumber, Razgriz returns, this time, as a great hero"
No, they are definitely the same group. They've been mentioned in certain Ports voyages too, and are known to have an abandoned fort on one of the Arc islands. There's a tie the opposite way too, with Kharidian exiles being potential Ports crew.
Their name most likely derives from the Skull region, though their presence is felt in adjacent regions and in the west.
Khnum may have created the gang, but since his arrest the remains have splintered. They were more of a mercenary group before, but now they'll do pretty much anything to earn money and survive.
It would be a bit silly and confusing to have two different gangs with the exact same name, a similar MO, and identical clothing (and even some identical NPCs).
