Bird and the BeastEdit

UnalignedEdit

  • Armadyl: Can't you see what a world under Bandos would be like?
  • Armadyl: Fight for me and you fight for a peaceful world, shared by gods and mortals. Talk to the recruiter to join me.

ArmadyleanEdit

  • Armadyl: : Another follower who believes in a just and peaceful world. I thank you for your assistance, and welcome you to the flock. What can I do for you?
    • Player: Who are you?
      • Armadyl: : Have the Guardians of Armadyl not mentioned me?
      • Armadyl: : My name is Armadyl. I ascended to godhood through the use of two artefacts, one which became known as the Staff of Armadyl. The other artefact... I do not willingly talk about.
      • Armadyl: : I do not share Bandos's belief that one god should rule over this world. We should act as guides rather than rulers, and we should all live in harmony.
      • Armadyl: : That is not necessarily a dream. It can be achieved through co-operation, mutual respect, and a strong sense of justice. If gods and mortals alike share these ideals, then the whole universe will benefit.
      • Armadyl: : Some gods would never take the path of harmony. In earlier ages, I'd be persistent in arguing with them.
      • Armadyl: : That Armadyl died during the God Wars: now, I am reborn like the phoenix, and I will kill them if I have to.
    • Player: Tell me about your people.
      • Armadyl: : The aviansie and I are from Abbinah. We were once disparate tribes, warring with each other. If I am proud of one thing, it's that I have brought my people together.
      • Armadyl: : Abbinah is a world of floating islands. Like any race, we need water, and the only source is at the core of our world. But the path is fraught, and many have died for the simple survival of our race.
      • Armadyl: : We all migrated to Gielinor for an easier life, but Zamorak destroyed my people with a single act. I believed all of my aviansie were murdered.
      • Armadyl: : I wandered across the cosmos for many years, aimless and in mourning.
      • Armadyl: : Hope came back to me slowly, and I eventually returned to Abbinah. To my delight, I found the surviving remnants of my people. Now I am as the phoenix: reborn, with new purpose.
      • Armadyl: : After this battle, I hope to find my people a home here, so that they can live in comfort.
    • Player: : Why should I follow you?
      • Armadyl: : I envisage a world where gods and mortals can coexist in peace, where goodness is rewarded and justice prevails.
      • Armadyl: : War is distasteful, but there are those who would never accept a peaceful world. They must die.
      • Armadyl: : Join me if you value freedom and wish to put an end to this constant cycle of war.
    • Player: : Why are you fighting Bandos?
      • Armadyl: : Gods should not force their power on others. Bandos thinks otherwise. He cares nothing for the welfare of others, even his own people. Especially his own people.
      • Armadyl: : He lives for the glory of battle and would wreak havoc on this planet.
      • Armadyl: : I am loath to start a war, but I cannot stand by and let this destruction be unimpeded.
      • Armadyl: : (if you have completed Missing, Presumed Death) As you saw at Sliske's 'Ascension', Bandos has taken the bait. He only wants to kill a god so that he can claim the Stone of Jas. With it, the world is his.
      • Armadyl: : Bandos's defeat will be a signal to the other gods. Tyranny is a blight, and I will stop at nothing to achieve peace between gods and mortals.
    • Player: : You look different to what has been described to me. (After asking anything else)
      • Armadyl: : ​You must have spoken to my Guardians of Armadyl. I thank you for returning the staff to them. (If the Staff of Armadyl was returned during Temple of Ikov.)
      • You must have spoken to my Guardians of Armadyl. They were most displeased that you gave the staff to Lucien. I hope you had good reason. (If the Staff of Armadyl was given to Lucien during Temple of Ikov.)
      • Armadyl: : I have become the phoenix. It represents my rebirth from a time of great sorrow.
      • Armadyl: : After Zamorak wiped out my aviansie, I was stricken with grief. I left this world and travelled the universe in mourning.
      • Armadyl: : As I moved from dead world to dead world, all became clear. I had trusted too much. I had fought battles that were not mine.
      • Armadyl: : Resolved, I returned to my home world. There, I met with Taka'ra and found that some of my people survived! My heart soared - this was a second chance!
      • Armadyl: : From then on, I have taken on the aspect of the phoenix to remind me never to neglect the fight for justice.
    • Player: That's everything.
      • Armadyl: : Keep our convoys collecting divine energy to put a quick end to this bloodshed.

BandosianEdit

  • Armadyl: You risk the lives of thousands, warmonger. A peaceful world has no room for Bandos, and the same goes for his followers. 

In Armadyl's Tower before Sliske's EndgameEdit

  • Before completion of Missing, Presumed Death:
    • Armadyl: Well met World Guardian. It is good to finally meet you, after hearing all of the stories about you.
    • Armadyl: It has been a while since I was on Gielinor...in this tower. Last time I was here I was forced to take the life of the god Bandos.
    • Armadyl: Not my finest moment, nor my proudest achievement, but it was sadly necessary.
    • Player: Why are you here now?
    • Armadyl: Because there is a terrible darkness stirring. I can sense it in the currents of the wind, something is about to happen.
    • Armadyl: What, I could not say, but I feel that it is my duty to stand against it.
  • After completion of Missing, Presumed Death:
    • Armadyl: So, Saradomin is gathering his forces in preparation. Sliske really has got us all on tenterhooks hasn't he? We all know it's a trap. We all know it's a trick. We all know that he is dragging us ever closer to war, yet what choice do we have? If any one of us claims that stone, it can only lead to complete disaster. So here we all are, trying to claim it so that when war happens, we have the edge. And here I am, the great hypocrite, doing just the same. Wanting to be the first to get that stone so other, more dangerous gods don't. Imagine if Zamorak got the stone again...the countless number he would slaughter. I cannot allow that to happen again. At least this time I have learned enough to face this battle without forcing my people to risk themselves. I need only a few close allies for the coming conflict. If there is to be mortal danger, then I shall face it. I know enough to know that my people will survive without me. They have done so once already. They can do so again.

After Sliske's EndgameEdit

  • If you beat Armadyl in the race for the Stone of Jas:
    • Armadyl: I admit, I am disappointed that I did not win the game. I have a bit of a competitive streak I confess.
    • Armadyl: Still, I believe it's for the best that the stone is gone. The dragonkin deserve a chance at freedom.
    • Armadyl: They may squander it and become a force for evil, certainly, but they deserve a chance to be otherwise.
  • If Armadyl beat you in the race for the Stone of Jas:
    • Armadyl: In some ways I am glad that the stone was destroyed. It is a symbol of slavery, as much as it is a symbol of power.
    • Armadyl: Now at least it cannot be used to start another god wars. I'm sure someone will find another way to start one though.
    • Can I ask you about...
      • Saradomin
        • Armadyl: There was a time when I considered Saradomin an ally. On the face of it we share many ideals. A desire for justice and a world of order, fighting against the chaos. Of course our definitions of that became quite different. Where I sought freedom for all, Saradomin sought to control. I genuinely believe he seeks it because he thinks it best for everyone, rather than simply out of a lust for power. I think he is a good man just...perhaps a little to distant from the people he seeks to govern.
          • (Shows previous options)
      • Seren
        • Armadyl: I have had little interaction with Seren and she seems to genuinely care for her people, but I fear her tenderness doesn't extend far beyond Tirannwn. If her affections were less species specific, then I believe she could be a positive force in the world.
          • (Shows previous options)
      • Zamorak
        • Armadyl: I can never forgive Zamorak for his actions at Forinthry. He was cornered, yes, but there was no need for such soulless destruction. On that day I lost so many people...my friends...because he wanted one last chance to hurt people. Justice is needed, but I must take care not to confuse justice with vengeance. A fine line, that is never easy to walk.
          • (Shows previous options)
      • Zaros
        • Armadyl: I am not sure what to say about Zaros. He is...enigmatic. He is clearly playing some sort of game, but his motivations... his end goals... they are shrouded and secretive. He could potentially be Gielinor's greatest saviour... but he could also be its end. I just don't know.
          • Did you know he experimented on Aviansie?
            • Armadyl: No...I did not...what...what did he do?
            • Player: He created nihil out of them, he combined pieces of them with other creatures. He...
            • Armadyl: No...you've said enough...thank you. Let me update my opinion then. Zaros is a monster, anyone that could do that to another sentient being deserves only contempt.

        • Vorago
          • Armadyl: He is a noble creature. A guardian of Gielinor's anima. I respect him.

        • Icthlarin
          • Armadyl: It cannot be easy being the guardian of the Underworld, shepherding people from one life to next. I imagine it's lonely. I can understand his loneliness... He is a brave and noble god who takes his duty seriously and I respect that.
            • (Shows previous options)
        • Death
          • Armadyl: It's a thankless job, but he does it well. I imagine it must be difficult knowing that no one ever really wants to see you. I wonder what he would do if he were to reach the stone. How would he choose to wield that power? I can't allow it to happen, of course, but part of me is curious as to what the outcome would be.
            • (Shows previous options)
        • Sliske
          • Armadyl: I have few kind words to say about Sliske, save that he may have achieved the impossible. Because of him, all the gods are united, even if it is in competition. We are all talking, rather than making war. If only he could have done it without mass murder...
            • (Shows previous options)
        • [More Options]
          • Bandos
            • Armadyl: Ah...yes. The 'Big High War god'. I suppose you want to know if I feel regret for killing him? The answer is no, I do not feel regret. I feel guilt, yes, but not regret. Bandos was a warmonger, who wanted nothing but constant bloodshed. He would have seen this world ripped apart and everyone murdered. I had to stop that and I knew he would not listen to reason, because he would see diplomacy as weakness. So I did what had to be done. For the greater good of Gielinor. Even though I find such an act reprehensible, there was no alternative.
              • (Shows previous options)
          • The dragonkin
            • Armadyl: I fear I know far less about these creatures than you. I know they are dangerous and powerful. I know that they are tied to the stone in some strange binding. But beyond that I know only rumour and legend, likely less than you.
              • (Shows previous options)
          • Brassica Prime
            • Armadyl: Ha! It's hard to form any meaningful opinion on an insane cabbage. I suppose he serves as an excellent reminder that being a god isn't necessarily a guarantee of achievements past. If anything he's a reminder that wonder and whimsy are as much a part of creation as reason. In that way I like him, he reminds me to laugh at the world occasionally.
              • (Shows previous options)
          • Marimbo
            • Armadyl: Ha ha. Marimbo. My friend let me tell you, never, ever, get into a drinking competition with her. I have a divinely imbued constitution and I soon found myself at a level of intoxication I had never dreamed of before. Let me tell you, a god's hangover is no kinder than a mortal's...actually I feel it may be significantly worse.

    • Can I ask about your past?
      • Armadyl: What would you like to know?
        • How did you become a god?
          • Armadyl's eyes turn distant, as though his mind has wandered somewhere else. A twinge of sadness hangs on his features, but is gone in a moment.
          • Armadyl:I...how I became a god isn't important. We are defined by our actions, not our origins. Let us...let us discuss other things.
            • (Shows previous options)
        • What was life on Abbinah like?
          • Armadyl: Abbinah was not a kind world, but it was home. It is a world where resources, such as water, were scares but we solved this by working together. The tribes would work as a single unit, each person taking responsibility for something the whole needed. I remember once I was to keep guard over the Tobi'it nest to make sure that they were allowed to grow to full strength before we feasted. I was barely more than a chick at the time, armed with little more than a stick and the implacable urge to prove myself. I must have whacked about a hundred kasaran as they attempted to feast on the hive. It may seem a rather silly thing to have fond memories of, but at the time I felt like the mightiest of all the aviansie warriors. A hero, defending my tribe from certain starvation. In truth there was likely little danger of that, but it instilled in me, from an early age, that vital notion of duty. That...that we must remember that we are part of the tribe. One of the people... Perhaps one day you will get a chance to visit Abbinah. It may be a harsh world, but there is a beauty that I have not seen in any other worlds.
            • (Shows previous options)
        • Can you tell me about your family?
          • Armadyl: Being immortal gives you a different way of thinking about families over the centuries. I have had several families over the years and I have loved each one of them equally. I have been son only once, but father and husband I have been twice.
            • Tell me about your parents.
              • Armadyl: We're talking a long, long time ago now. So long that none who carry my family name, save myself, still live. My father was a scholar. He gathered the history of our people and recorded them for the future. My mother, perhaps ironically, was a priestess of the old religion. She taught me and the other children the legends of the spirits that she believed forged our world. It was a simple life, but a good one. I like to think they raised me well.
                • (Shows previous options)
            • Tell me about your marriages.
              • Armadyl: I have been married twice so far. Hesma'Dae was my first marriage. He was a proud and noble warrior, one of the generals in my first Guardians. We lived a long and happy life together, but age catches up to us all in the end and he died peacefully in his sleep. Should we all be so lucky.
                • I'm sorry.
                  • Armadyl: Please, don't be. It is easy to feel this loss as the curse of immortality, but I prefer to remember that I got to be with him his whole lifetime. I have decades of memories, good and bad, that will always be with me. I am blessed by this, not cursed.

              • Armadyl: My second marriage was to Obi'Sooth, a simple farmer. Obi taught me to appreciate the simpler things. Helped ground me. I had lived as a god for so long, it was reassuring to remember what a hard day's work is like. But Obi was taken from me. Not by age, or disease, but by the final retribution of a defeated god. That...that is why I can never forgive Zamorak for his actions.
                • (Shows previous options)
            • Tell me about your children.
              • Armadyl: I adopted Ra'arth and Tepras during my first marriage. Both had been tragically orphaned by the harsh trials of Abbinah and left without a tribe to care for them. Ra'arth was a scholar to be. She was fascinated by stories and history and each day she would come to me with new tales to tell and new things she had discovered. I came to visit her on her deathbed and, surrounded by her grand children, she promised me that death was but another story to discover. The nature of divinity means that I will sadly never get to hear it. Tepras. Now there was a trouble maker. Tepras delighted in practical jokes. He would set up assorted pranks that would be the sufferance of all the tribes. Once he set up an elaborate contraption to make it appear as though my temple was haunted. I spent most of of an afternoon calming some of my more... delicate followers. He grew up to be quite the skilled tribe leader, much to all of our surprise. His pranks were born out of a strong sense of empathy, which he was able to use to lead the tribe through trialling times. My time as a father has been a blessed one and I wouldn't change it.

            • I'd like to ask about something else.
              • (Shows previous options)
        • What did you do after the God Wars?
          • Armadyl: I wandered. Understand, I thought my people lost and I blamed myself. Guthix had banished all of us, and as a result I could not return to my people on Gielinor. Perhaps if I had... But I do not blame Guthix. I understand how much destruction we caused and I was not innocent in this. So I walked amongst the stars and crossed between worlds. Creation is vast and filled with wonder, almost enough to make me forget the pain. I found a world made of pure crystal. A diamond that glistened in the starlight. Beautiful, truly, you cannot begin to imagine it was so empty. So silent. I sat amongst the glistening peaks of the translucent mountains and my thoughts assailed me. Know that there are few foes so terrible as your own demons. My guilt, my regrets, every wrong I had ever caused, they struck at me from between valleys of pure starlight. It took me far too long to really face them. To admit the wrongs I had done and, ultimately, to promise to learn from them. But this I did. I will no longer let myself make the same mistakes I did in the past. So I found other worlds and I met other races. Some were welcoming, accepting of strangers. Others not so much. On one world I encountered a feline species who spoke only in song. Beautiful. Strangely inviting given what should have been an obvious animosity. Their matriarch sung the history of her people and it was one of mystery, reverence and wonder. Their world was dying though. Its sun growing dark, illuminating them by moonlight alone. Still they sang. Songs of joy, for the time they had had. Not songs for a time coming to an end. I offered to take them to another world, to save them. But they just smiled and shook their heads. I still think about them sometimes.
