The Isle of Souls is an island located in the Western Sea, west of Feldip Hills. It is where the Soul Wars minigame takes place. The island is only accessible by a portal by the Edgeville ruins or the Ferox Enclave Dungeon.
The island was once the site of a battle during the God Wars; the Armadylean soldiers that were sent there were tasked to claim and protect an unknown artefact, but it was claimed by Bandos, who appeared to have used it to destroy them, as well as his own army. This resulted in some becoming Ancient Ghosts, unable to move on to the next world. It is believed the artefact they were seeking was the "Soul Stone", which may have been eventually used by Nomad to build the Soul Obelisk.
Dungeon[edit | edit source]
On the island, one can find the entrance to the Isle of Souls Dungeon, where several slayer monsters can be found, as well as a chest that can be looted for a chance of a dark key. Two adamant and a rune rocks may also be found here. Near the blue dragons in the dungeon, six blue dragon scale spawns can be found.
The Crumbling Tower[edit | edit source]
In the basement of the Crumbling Tower, the Dark Chest can be found, which can be opened with a dark key. In the basement, several spiders can be found, and several level 20 Forgotten Souls haunt each of the higher floors.

There are several resources spread throughout the island. It should be noted that the only bank and deposit box in the area are found in the Soul Wars Lobby, which is very far away from most of the resources.
