Tumeken
- largely weakened, residing as the Kharid-Ib, possibly split into his 4 avatars as well.
Elidinis
- in possession of Aragnya's Veil (so she could seem to be anyone), evidently has been able to at least send things to Gielinor in the 5th age (otherwise how would Aragnya's Tale have ended up on Gielinor when it was written on another plane), might have sent/brought the Araxytes to Gielinor (since she otherwise executed them all in the aforementioned Tale), and could potentially be on Gielinor (even before the Edicts fell).

Deceased (Elsewhere)

Skargaroth
- T4. Killed by Guthix on Naragun
Jododu Otoku
- T3. Killed on Bandos' home plane by Bandos. Also known to have killed a god to ascend (so that's another dead god out there).
Mah
- T1. Killed by the combined efforts of Zaros, Seren, and the Mahjarrat on Freneskae.

Alive (On Gielinor)
Jas
- T1
Wen
- T1
Ful
- T1
Bik
- T1

You said current 'known' gods as of the 6th age. Those were all gods we currently know about as of the 6th age.

Even if you don't include the ones who didn't live up until the 6th age, that only gets rid of Skargaroth and Jododu Otoku + the god he killed.

So I'm not seeing the issue you have with my post.

I still have no idea why Armadyl didn't bump up to t3 when he killed Bandos


Didn't the Jmods confirm that Armadyl refused to absorb Bandos's power? That he was interested in removing Bandos as a threat rather than increasing his own power?

Btw Gielinor doesn't have a tier, infact, I think he isn't actually a "divine" being, and is instead powerful as one. But he doesn't have a tier as of yet.



You're right, my mistake.


Also again to the others on this thread, the Gods listed are ones to have had activity, are currently involved or will soon be part of the 6th age.

Any god who died prior to Guthix is not listed.


I will again point out the lack of elder gods in this list as Mah died after Guthix and her sisters still live.

Your list is still missing the elder gods.


Again, this includes only the Gods from the 6th age, Whom have had content or been mentioned in the 6th age leading up to the end of Sliske's Endgame.

We all know the elder gods are on Gielinor. But they have not nor do they currently have any impact on what goes on if anything they are simply watching.


Jas showed up in Sliske's end game. Mah showed up in Fate of the Gods and Children of Mah. That's all 6th age content.

Mah drained the Mahjarrat, Zaros, and Seren on Gielinor. Jas worked with Sliske, enabling his shenanigans at least throughout the 6th age. That's impacts on Gielinor in the 6th age.

Most of what we know about the other elders also comes from 6th age content including but not limited to: Heart of Stone; Fate of the Gods and its post-quest content; their response to Jas in Sliske's Endgame; One of a Kind; and the Light Within.

What does that mean? Well, simply put, it's impossible to have a square-root of a negative number, so the keyword is "impossible".


Not exactly. It's impossible to express the square root of a negative number as a 'real' number. As such, complex 'imaginary numbers' are used as a stop gap to allow for the solving of certain complex (or potentially nonsensical) math problems.

Imaginary numbers can be imagined as an extra axis to a given graph functioning much like a new dimension (like height, length, or width).

As such, I could see the answer meaning that Xau-Tak is an imaginary god, or, much like the gods of the Lovecraftian mythos it draws inspiration from, is from outside our reality.

But what if dimensions existed that were completely separate from our own. Our current inability to reach them doesn't prove they don't exist. Likewise, the absence of any clear proof of such a dimension limits the amount of work being done on research into such a theoretical plane - this means we *won't* uncover the existence of anything like that by accident or design, until something or someone comes through from that dimension and metaphorically says "hello".


I did acknowledge that possibility with the, 'outside our reality,' bit. When it comes to multiple realities, however, I have to default to Occam's razor: if two competing hypotheses equally explain that which is observed, one should default to the one that makes less unproven assumptions (otherwise you run into the issue of accepting multiple potentially contradicting potentially unfalsifiable explanations for any given topic).

To add to the idea of Xau-Tak being imaginary, our character's 'first' run in with Xau-Tak (Pieces of Hate) has Rabid Jack 'infect' us with a glimpse of the black hand to drive us mad over time (with no indication that this effect would end after the fight). Throughout the following fight, we have to manage our sanity or fall prey to ever worsening and damaging hallucinations. Should one manage their sanity after letting it fall too far, the hallucinations that had been plaguing your character will vanish. This includes the black hand of Xau-Tak itself.

As a result, I am inclined to view Xau-Tak as an insidious memetic agent rather than a god or as something beyond our reality.
