During the Gielinor Games, occasional commentary is given through floating megaphones. In addition, a small dialogue occurs when entering or finishing a game. The team of commentators consist of:

The Commentators

Mr Mordaut
Mr. Mordaut chathead

Mr Mordaut is the old and wise draconic school teacher who is only encountered during the Surprise Exam random event. He seems to be an opposer of the cheese rolling, claiming it is too stupid for the advanced races. However, the circular cheeses are a whole new invention to the trolls. He appears to be the only one taking the commentating seriously, although he also makes the occasional random joke. He also appears to be trying to have serious conversations with the zombie, although that of course fails.

Thok of Daemonheim chathead

Thok is the master of Dungeoneering, brother of Marmaros and Bryll. He normally stands at Daemonheim selling the two Dungeoneering skillcapes, but now he has come to the Games to commentate. Or rather, compare athletes to himself and make funny but slightly dumb comments.

Tentacle chathead

Tentacle is the leader of five mermaids, two of which (Manta and Remora) are incinerated by the Queen Black Dragon, with Urchin and Anemone still being alive. Those three are encountered during Deadliest Catch in which they consider feeding the player to Thassalus. Tentacle is usually seen having conversations with the troll, constantly being surprised of his stupitidy.

The Raptor chathead

Raptor, the mysterious warrior thinks that races are a waste of time, but he appreciates the type of races that Thok and his brother compete in which involves killing monsters. Also, he seems to opposed to the cheese rolling, for an unknown reason. Thok speculates that is because cheese gives him "bad Raptor nightmares".

Lalli chathead

The Troll is a rather slow character who shares many similarities with the Zombie, although he isn't as fussy when it comes to eating humans.

Zombie swab chathead

The Zombie is the least intelligent of the commentators, worse than even the troll. He seems mostly concerned with eating brains.

Thok: Snap with two packs of cards?
Mr Mordaut: Something like that, yes.

Raptor: Running. Waste of time, unless you're chasing after a monster.
Thok: Metal-man, races can be fun. Me and brother Marm would race to kill as many monsters as possible.
Raptor: That kind of race I can get behind.
  • Mr Mordaut: It's a misconception that athletics is solely about strength and speed.
  • Mr Mordaut: It can be very tactical. The brain is just as important as the feet.
  • Zombie: Brains...taste better than feet...
  • Mr Mordaut: So, use your mind to take advantage of your opponents.

  • Troll: Do they eat them?
  • Zombie: No...but we eat athletes later...yes?

  • Mr Mordaut: Grabbing what you can in a short space of time. A metaphor for life, eh Thok?
  • Thok: I not know metaphor. My family talks with each other, not use flags.
  • Mr Mordaut: Good lord, I didn't mean semaphor! You have a beautiful mind, Thok.
