Ok, so first and foremost -> yes, this thread is attached to Southern Misthalin. I made this separate thread because I need the community's help. I'm currently looking for somebody to head up a church in Lumbridge (for now, we'll run this as a pilot -- if it's good, expand to the rest of South Misth, and maybe further out.)

I know that the OLD Church of Saradomin had a pretty good set-up, so I'd love to have somebody from that organization take the reigns on this. So, please, help me out -- answer these questions to enlighten me.


I. Given that the two gods, Zamorak and Saradomin, recently shattered the lives of many of the Misthaltie Folk, especially those living in Lumbridge, do you believe that the atmosphere towards Saradomin would generally be the same, or different -- for good or worse? A brief explanation with your answer would help loads.

II. Would there be opposition, amongst the peasants, to the church regaining activity in the south, given that so many lives were affected? A brief explanation with your answer would help loads.

III. Would you be interested in getting involved in such a role-play; whether opposing or supporting a newly formed church inside of Southern Misthalin as a Lumbridge / Draynor citizen? Why or why not?

IV. Do you believe that the church in South Misth should have a small militant wing to host /Templar Knight-eque/ role-plays : quests, general happenings, security, etc?

V. What would you like to see with a church role-play?

VI. If we proceed to erect this church with somebody at the head, would you be willing to commit and take the reigns as the South Misth admin for religious st00f?

I. It is likely that among most Saradominists, even citizens of Lumbridge, would see the actions of Zamorak villainous, and Saradomin as heroic. However, given the agnostic nature of Lansing influences, there could also be a rising disdain for the gods altogether. Personally, that is up to you.

II. I don't think so. Again, as this ties into the question above, it is really up to you.

III. I would be interested in setting it up... If it is for the almighty bird-god. Praise Armadyl!

IV. I do not think it is very necessary, but if it serves a purpose in the Church of Southern Misthalin, go for it.

V. Intrigue. Betrayal. Scandal. Tyranny!

SIXTH ANSWER: Sure!

I. The war was a great disturbance to all citizens of Lumbridge and it's clear that even some Saradominists were disdainful of the war's aftermath. But, their clergy was also quick to spread word of Lumbridge's successful defense against Zamorakians. It could be considered either truth or propaganda. This could in theory fuel more support for Saradominism and generate more hate towards Zamorkians.

II. The state still holds authority and both Saras and Zammies felt the need to oblige to said authority despite the large influence of Saradominist clergy in Lumbridge. If the church is to be given support by the state, it could easily lead to more tensions between the already icy relations between the mix of Saradominists and Zamorakians. The former obviously would enjoy this new privilege and the latter would find themselves cornered and would most likely resist. Domestic unrest is a likely issue.

III. As a Saradominist, I definitely would and have already made plans on how to contribute to it if ever.

IV. Given that the church would most likely encounter resistance from the general folk, yes. But the militant group must be very limited mostly for just protection of the church and its affiliates. It can always count upon other willing Saradominist groups for support anyways.

V. I won't mind a religious gathering every now and then. Some civil service rp would do too. With all the wars going, on beggars and orphans more than likely would have been flooding every city street in Gielinor. Then there's missionary work and the occasional exorcisms and the like**

**. I don't have much time but I'll definitely be heading a sub-group belonging to the church.
They make me shiiiaaaiiine!

As far as I'm aware, the only person still active that was properly involved in organising the old Church, besides myself, is Luther. Though, he's taking exams at the moment, I believe. Perhaps he'd be interested when he's back.

I mean, there's also Conor, who ran Church 2.0, and Del (original bishop lumbridge and ran Church 3.0) may be around but I haven't seen him or heard from him.

I'd consider, though I'm too busy with Asgarnia, and y'know. ... Y'know.

I. As far as we know, most humans are God-fearing Saradominists. With Saradomin arriving second and Zamorak immediately destroying things when he came in and the White Knights aiding in protecting Lumbridge, most likely opinions on Saradomin shook among Non-Saradominists and more carefree religious people than the faithful.

II. Likely not. Especially if the Church did it's part to support the sick, injured, and weary of the God Wars.

III. Likely not. My cleric has been travelling and may stop in, but she is a traveller and Asgarnian born. My roots are Asgarnia, for the lore and diversity of groups humans can be in there.

IV. The Temple Knights already exist. They serve Saradomin's will across Gielinor. Why would a small church area need a similar militant wing? Maybe some guards, but Lumbridge does have HAM to keep the church safe.

V. More peasant roleplay. Clergy interact with peasants and nobles alike. Getting that connection is vital to any church*

**. Already got a few roleplays I admin for, but thanks for the offer.
neat

Not too far fetched to have a new order, actually. Considering the Catholic church had the Templars, the Hospitallers and the Teutonics all to pretty much do the same purpose, having a new group in Misthalin could be quite realistic.

Temple knights tend to be a sneaky manipulative group nobody knows about, and the white knights are limited in Asgarnia. Having a new group who exists to safeguard the religious peasantry from the goblins, swamp monsters and bandits strewn across southern Misthalin - is actually not a bad idea!

Only issue would be getting the actual roleplayers to fill its ranks.
We come here with no peaceful intent, but ready for battle, determined to avenge our wrongs and set our country free.

My mistake on that one. For whatever reason (my need for glasses or a new phone screen, most likely) I read that as Temple Knight Esque instead of Templar.

A Knights Templar group isn't out of place. Falador has the White Knights and Ardougne has two, the Paladins and Warrior Women.

Adding one to Misthalin wouldn't be out of place. Hell, draw from Ivandis. Ivandis' home was right by the Lum, after all.

Would either of you be interested in being involved in a Templar Knight-esque group ? I think such an order could take a really grass-roots chivalrous order approach.

Luther here,

About a "militant wing"

I disagree simply because in my opinion, Lumbridge has never been portrayed as a major Saradominist bastion of power, but more of a smaller parish, given the local feeling of Lumbridge church in the town. I don't think something like that has been fully explored in roleplay.

The effects of the Battle of Lumbridge would be an interesting dynamic. Though obviously different variables, the Black Death saw the rise of polar opposites, first, I think that Saradomin's victory would inspire religious fanaticism in the wake of the belief that Saradomin will be victorious in the Second God Wars. I believe that religious militancy would come from peasants, not a religious military order, which I think is becoming overdone. Second, the pure cost and the destruction of the battle would stimulate the questioning of the Saradominist faith, as the intentions and ambitions of Saradomin differ from what was portrayed before his return. As spiritualism would become more questionable, some may resort to hedonism and, other ideas (such as Godlessness) much like at the time of the Black Death.
