The Overseer is a parasitic organism residing in the Abyssal Nexus that serves to inform the player about the area. Behind it is the Font of Consumption, where players can place unsired in exchange for valuable items, such as abyssal daggers and pieces of the abyssal bludgeon.

It asks the player to bring it the pieces of defeated Abyssal Sires to create a weapon in return. The parts can be given to the Overseer, who will hold onto them until all parts are obtained. This is a one-time occurrence.

History[edit | edit source]

The Overseer is a follower of Zamorak. During the God Wars, Zamorak sought all potential allies from the universe. The Overseer and its party headed to the Abyss, but were soon trapped alongside the Abyssal Sires. The Sires created the Abyssal Nexus to sustain themselves in deep stasis. The Overseer's party died off as time passed, leaving it the only survivor. It would remain in the Nexus for thousands of years and became aware that the God Wars eventually ended.

In the year 169 of the Fifth Age, the Abyss was discovered by Zamorakians wishing to make their own runes, as they were sanctioned by the Saradominists. The adventurer also discovered the Abyss due to this and headed into the Nexus, where they met the Overseer. It promised to create them a powerful weapon if they could defeat the Abyssal Sires and obtain some of its body parts.

The Overseer vanishes, leaving only a book.

Upon handing in the final bludgeon piece, it will create the weapon, and state that they easily tricked the player due to their desires. By absorbing the powers, it claims to have obtained enough power to escape the Abyss. It also told the player that the weapon it created is a "living weapon whose power is rivalled by few weapons in Gielinor". Despite having tricked them, it was still grateful for their assistance and left behind an ancient tome to allow them to create more bludgeons if they wanted to before teleporting away to an unknown location.
