Deities?[edit source]

Should we include Jas in the category:Deities? Maha Nadihan 20:06, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

i believe so as Deities are Gods,

We don't know for sure that Jas was a god. BTW, where did that quote come from? Kingofdanerds 20:41, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

If you've done the new quest, read the quest diary after finding the stone.93.96.123.200 22:38, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

I know it's an old topic, but it's still relevant. I mean, are there really any differences between Deities and Gods? In the real world, I don't think there's any. This page is filed under the Deities category, but doesn't have the Gods template like the rest of them. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:47, August 20, 2012 (UTC)

Colour[edit source]

How do we know Jas's colour is orange? Just because the Stone of Jas looks orange doesn't mean it is. So don't bring up the Stone as an example.Lord Captain Cecil Harvey 23:50, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Jas is a joke.[edit source]

After learning about the JAS acronym, I can't help but wonder if Jas is just a joke by Jagex. Perhaps there is actually no such being and the adventurer will find out that the ultimate truth behind the creation of Gielinor will turn out to be nothing more than a game made by some guys. I do believe Jagex has a tendency to break the fourth wall. I feel like adding this to the article but I'm not sure if it's relevant.--Guthix's Book of Balance.pngLunt0er 23:49, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

I really wouldn't be surprised if you were right. OMG!  Tien  23:55, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Sure, they often break the fourth wall, but I don't think they would do it with such an important thing. Breaking the fourth wall never really had influence on the storyline, it was only done in conversation, it has not been broken by something happening (as far as I know).

I know this is old but for anyone who is reading, during the first official Runescape livestream, it was confirmed Jas is a REAL character, his name just is probably derived from the acronym.

Gender[edit source]

No, I think we should identify Jas as female in this article. The TokHaar records are a satisfyingly reliable source for me, because of their first-hand experience with the Elder Gods. I do not agree with Battleben's split, and I especially don't like this "He/She" business in the article. It's ugly. I also reject the argument, currently presented in the article, that both the dragonkin and TokHaar are genderless and therefore have no concept of gender -- if that were the case, they would not use gender pronouns at all. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 19:56, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

I've replaced the "He/She" stuff with "They". It's a valid singular third person neutral pronoun, damnit. LOOK! Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 20:01, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Gods in general have no gender. I believe this was even discussed by mod osborne although I cannot recall where (podcast maybe). Yes, some deities may have had a gender prior to achieving godhood, but with their ascension their genders seem to become less relevant. I see no reason for an Elder god, a deity that seems to have never had a mortal body to have ever been associated to a single gender. The difference in the given gender of elder gods by the dragonkin and tokhaar shows more about their languages, and maybe even philosophies, than it does the actual gender of the god.
It seems more appropriate to use the neuter pronouns like Ansela has said. Law rune.png Samberen Nature rune.png 13:39, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Picture[edit source]

Considering that we know that Jas is sand. Should we crop the elder god picture to show that Jas is the one on the left? (The rocky sandy one) Or at the very least put a caption on the picture saying that she is the one on the left? Same thing for Ful Darkmoon25 (talk) 10:35, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Yes Sliske symbol.png Draconis E Talk Illuminated Book of Balance.png 10:42, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

The one on the left? That is ful, since ful created the tok & tzaar that that one looks like there species. Jas is the center, like you said she is sand and the center one looks like sand its obvious. Dontgoout (talk) 20:54, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
