We had this conversation within the RSRP Wik Admin chat the other day, and I'm still wondering peoples opions.
When attempting to figure out which you think is the most powerful, think of: Technological, Economic, Political, Cultural, Religious, and Military forces.
Can't wait to see responses. :>

Saradomin protected Falador (why did he do this?) from the Kinshra in DOC.
Clearly, the strongest region is Archeon.
I'd like to see anyone try to take on the TokHaar. Of course, the TokHaar would never bother leaving their volcano unless instructed, so judging their offensive capabilities as they stand right now would be like trying to measure the colour blue. But no one's taking that cave while they sit in it, and anyone trying would have to get past the TzHaar first (which is a mammoth task in itself), and if the Elder Gods ever decide to scrap the project and re-make the world, all Ful has to do is snap her fingers and they're there. An immortal army that was created to literally move mountains, with a love of combat to rival even Bandos? I don't care which kingdom's army is behind you, even the Dragonkin couldn't take on the TokHaar.
The Dragonkin are leashed to an Elder Artifact. The TokHaar are an Elder Artifact.
The TokHaar have a definite problem outside their home, the Kiln, though. The Kiln is, after all, the very thing that gives them life and recreates them anew every time they 'die'.
Also, The dragonkin are feared by the gods at full power.

This is true, the gods do fear the dragonkin. All three of them. But the dragonkin can be killed. The mahjarrat can be killed. Even the gods can be killed. The TokHaar are truly immortal, being reborn in the Kiln after death.
Zamorak attempted to acquire them for himself, but even he gave up after realising just how powerful they were. It is unknown if he knew about the dragonkin (though it seems unlikely he wouldn't at least have some inkling of them, given everything that happened in the Second Age) but he did not seem to have any such reservations about using the Stone of Jas.
And yes, as I mentioned, the TokHaar don't venture beyond TzHaar city (and even going that far is rare for them). But the Kiln is unassailable while they reside within it, making it IMO the most powerful region (if you can call it a region) from a purely defensive standpoint. As far as their offensive power goes, they are merely waiting for instructions from Ful. And when those come, an army with a passionate love of warfare and a knack for geographical rearrangement will be marching across Gielinor, and their fallen will be revived in the Kiln like a production line. I don't see anyone else matching that.
Not sure why that didn't register as me (I was logged in when I posted it), but the above comment was by me, if you hadn't guessed.
What do you think?
