4000 (Approx.)First Age-And on the four-thousandth year, Guthix rested. First Age (Age of creation) ends.
ThoughoutSecond Age-Gods begin to expand their territories into vacuum left by Guthix.

  • Saradomin - Law and order aligned god, god of lightning. Entered Gielinor on the holy island of Entrana. Saradomin worship expands to southern present day Asgarnia and Misthalin, some southern sea and eastern sea islands, and the entirety of present day Morytania. Icyene race (angels) settle in present-day Morytania, white unicorns common throughout Saradomin worshiping areas. Unknown if myriad civilizations ever converted to Saradomin worship.

  • Flamtaer - God of fire - Central Morytania, present-day swamp lands.

  • Armadyl - Justice and peace aligned god, sky god. Armadyl worship common throughout present day Kandarin. Aviantese and Aviansie (birdmen) races loyal to Armadyl. Gnomes and dwarves in Kandarin remained fiercely loyal to Guthix.

  • Ikov - Follower of Armadyl or allied god - central Kandarin.

  • Seren worship and the elves start expanding across northern Kandarin, mixing with Armadyl worshipers. Possible outpost as far east as present day Edgeville.

  • Fremminik (think Northmen) stop worshiping Guthix sometime in the first or second age, start worshiping uniquely Fremminik gods. Fremminiks expand over northern islands and into northern Kandarin, mixing with Seren and Armadyl worshipers.

  • Karamjan islanders stop worshiping Guthix, follow uniquely Karamjan gods and spirits. Islanders start practicing broodoo.

  • Apes and monkeys of Monkey Atoll and southern Karamja abandon Guthix worship in favor of Marimbo worship. Marimbo was possibly Guthix's pet gorilla.

  • The Kharidian Pantheon - Tumeken, Elidinis, Icthlarin, and Amascut - rule over Kharidian subcontinent

  • Zaros - a god whose alignment has been lost to history due to the combined efforts of Saradomists and Zamorakians - Took the then agriculturally rich present-day Wilderness, and expanded into much of present-day Asgarnia and Misthalin, the northern part of the Kharidian subcontinent, and northern Morytania, coming into conflict with Saradomists on two fronts and the Menaphite Pantheon on one, and possibly the myriad civilizations as well. Unknown whether the myriad civilizations converted to Zaros worship.

  • Dragonkin - Seem to hold power over Daemonheim. Possible conflict with Zaros, possible alignment with Seren.

  • Trolls - Do not seem to have organized religion. Hold Trollheim, Trollwiess, and Death Plateau, collectively forming an elevated mountainous region known as Troll Country. Troll Country and White Wolf Mountain form a long mountain range which prevents westward expansion of the Zarosian Empire. Passes through Troll country guarded by trolls, passes through White Wolf Mountain defended by the combined forces of Seren and Armadyl. Trolls also in conflict with dwarves, possibly Fremminik tribes.

  • Status of the continent east of the eastern sea unknown (Eastern Lands)

  • Bandos and his enslaved and bred mercenary races start coming to Gielinor. Includes goblins, hobgoblins, orks, ogres, mogres, jogres, ourgs, fayrgs, and ruargs. Bandos establishes a tentative relation with the trolls and begins breeding experiments on them.

?Second Age-Amascut strikes out at Zaros on her own, using her slayers, priestesses, and her own powers over death to kill and ressurect an army slaved to her will but still possesed of their souls. The first act of necromancy. Any one killed in her army or killed by her army is immediatly ressurected. Process slowly destroys the souls of her conscripts. Zarosian forces pushed back to the walls of the massive city-fortress of Senntisten. The recently dead from all over the continent start migrating to join Amascut's forces, causing great concern among the alliance and causing chaos on their warpath through the Zarosian Empire to Senntisten. Zarosian forces, including demons, vampires, recently enslaved werewolves, and mahjarrat barely hold the line.
?Second Age-Present-day Slayer Tower built in Northern Morytania and present-day Duel Arena built in Mehkmet tribal area, both for unknown reasons.
?Second Age-Zaros creates Nex to battle Amascut and lead his forces against her. Nex is an amalgam of Icyene, demon, Aviantese, and vampire, making her a cunning, agile, vicious war machine. Nex and her forces begin pushing Amascut back.

Amascut takes control of the staff and corrupts it, turning her betrayers into cats in the process. She declares war on existance and faints.
?Second Age-Armadyl refuses to touch the corrupted Staff of Armadyl. It is buried deep inside the Temple of Ikov.
?Second Age-Zaros is now free to set Nex and the mahjarrat on the Alliance but is spread too thinly. Bandos threatens to invade Zarosian heartland but holds off on the prospect of a bigger war. Trolls threaten Ghorrock and the Mahjarrat Rejuvination Ritual site.
?Second Age-First stories about Evil Chicken
?Second Age-Strife over dwindling rune supply.
several decadesSecond Age-Unease grows in the Zarosian Empire as the mahjarrat grow restless.
2000Second Age-

  • Saradomist explorer Valdez finds the Staff of Armadyl while exploring Kandarin, wishes to put it in the possesion of Saradomin and starts hurrying toward Entrana.

  • Rennard, a theif, assailed Valdez and stole the staff. He travelled to a bar in hopes of finding someone connected with Zaros, since Zaros would pay a high price for the staff which could break the stalemate.

  • Kharrim, a messenger for the mahjarrat general Zamorak, informs Zamorak of the staff and later buys and delivers it.

  • Lennissa, a Saradomist spy within Zamorak's ranks informed Dhalak, her superior, of Zamorak's possesion of the Staff of Armadyl. Acting on intelligence that Zamorak was preparing to lead a rebellion against Zaros, Dhalak cast a spell on the staff to keep it hidden from the gods. He judged that the ensuing chaos could provide an opening for Saradomin's northward expansion.
2000Second Age-Betrayal of Zaros - Zamorak and forces loyal to him (several mahjarrat, Vampyre Lord Lowerniel Vergidiyad Drakan, Elder-Demon Thammaron, and the human warrior Viggora) confront Zaros and mahjarrat loyal to him. Battle ensues, Zaros trips and impales himself on the staff. By some accident, Zamorak is skewered by the staff while Zaros is still impaled. (Invisible guiding hand of Amascut, anyone?) Zaros' godhood is mostly transferred to Zamorak. Described as Zaros fading away and Zamorak gaining superreality. Zaros condemns all involved with eternal restlessness as invisible ghosts after death. Zamorak becomes god of chaos.
2000Second Age-Remaining gods descend upon Zamorak and banish him for "killing" Zaros. With Amascut depowered, Zaros gone, and Zamorak banished, the rest of the gods grow suspicious of each other. Armadyl begrudgingly takes his staff back, entrusts the Guardians of Armadyl to keep the staff safe in the Temple of Ikov.

If you ever decide to continue this or add to it, here is an interesting post on tip.it about Runescape history with a focus on the activity of the Necrosyrte (http://forum.tip.it/topic/208619-dragonkin-after-the-rise-of-lucien/). This was before the dungeoneering update though, and wasn't there some speculation that Daemonheim was a Necrosyrte ruin before Bilrach started digging and releasing other dimensional creatures?

Huh... how much of the original Necrosyrte architecture do you think remains? I don't remember seeing any symbology pointing toward them down there. Some Seren symbols, though.
