This talk page is for discussing the King Roald II page.

Real?[edit source]

The Shield of Arrav book says that it was King Roald that put the prize on the shield. Also, why would King Roald II come before King Roald I? I think there's been a mistake. Morian Smith 13:40, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

I would say, looking at the history of this article, that the previous editors were either on the wrong track or deliberately creating false information. I may be wrong, but I have never heard of a King Roald II, and your point about II coming after I is also, obviously, valid. I'll have a trawl around and see if I can spot anything, and I'll stick this page on my watchlist, but if I can't find anything I'll delete it next time I'm editing.

Alright, I did a little poking around, and on the King Roald article it says that the current King Roald is actually the third in his line. It says that on the certificate given during the Shield of Arrav it refers to him as that. Now, I can almost believe that, but I can't find a picture of the certificate anywhere to confirm it.

I did some more research, and it's only confusing me more. In a previous postbag Reldo says that he's 28, and that he taught Roald to read. Now, the theft of the Shield of Arrav happened in the year 143 of the Fifth Age: 26 years ago. According the Shield of Arrav book, King Roald was ruler at the time. This would mean that Reldo was two at the time. Now, I would assume Reldo was already fairly old when he taught Roald to read, and that Roald was probably decently old when he took the throne. In other words, King Roald is too young to fit Reldo's account and the book's account of his life. So either there's another King Roald, or Jagex made a mistake (which is very likely). Sorry if that was confusing; I know I'm confused. -_- Morian Smith 14:30, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Alright, after painstakingly redoing the nightmarish Shield of Arrav quest, and spending several hours of my life on it, I can say that this article's contents are real. The quest has been redone and says a bit about King Roald and his father. So, the King Roald article needs to be edited, and maybe even moved to King Roald III. And I'll probably be making a King Roal I article, Anyway, case closed. =) Morian Smith 23:23, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Good job. Turns out I managed to stick the article itself (not this talk page) on my watchlist, so I missed the results of your research 'till now -.- Ah well, no harm done I guess. Well done on the research though.Dechaineux Talk 10:14, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Don't sweat it, you didn't miss much. =P Morian Smith 15:14, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

A kind person?[edit source]

"The statue outside of Lumbridge Castle is leaning little forward but the queen next to him is not. This might suggest that King Roald II had a bad back, or that he was a kind person." I can understand why this might suggest he had a bad back, but how is kindness linked with a hunched posture? Briefly looked for evidence on the Web, but couldn't find anything.

Perhaps because he is letting the Queen stand forward—though that would seem to suggest weakness, not kindness. It should probably be deleted.Eyes2.gifPig HouseGuthix's Book of Balance.pngInane Ramblings 16:21, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
