Biehn, Garlandia and Ux, yes. But a wannabe god with ulterior motives like Kara-Meir? I would be embarrassed. Okay, she had her share of suffering and was the victim of betrayal as a child. But there's no way Guthix would endorse someone who has such ambitions.

While some bonuses depending on whether you follow a certain god or not relating to the history of that faction would be nice,
it would simply lead to people following a god for the bonuses rather than actually liking the god or their philosophy.


For example, Saradomin and Zamorak would end up with very few followers as the standard prayer and spell books are worthless for combat at higher levels, thus Zaros would get an even bigger boost to his following for making the ancient curses and magicks even more powerful. Brassica and Sliske's boosts would be so random and useless that no one would follow them, and most looking for more defensive/support boosts would rather go with Seren. Bandos and Armadyl's bonuses are too focused on one attack style and since the game encourages using multiple combat styles depending on what you plan on fighting their following would drop as well. Godless' bonus is useless as well, as there are generally plenty of skilling spots so a .5% chance to not chop a tree wouldn't be worth it, skillers would just follow Guthix instead for that minor xp boost.
The issue with this idea is that people would merely choose their god to min max their builds if there are clearly superior bonuses, or end up pigeonholed into a certain playstyle if it merely gave bonuses in certain areas.


Make no mistake, while I do not support the idea in it's current form, I would enjoy things that show our dedication to our god and give bonuses for doing so. However, it would have to be balanced across all factions and the easiest way to do that would be making the differences merely cosmetic.
For instance, a smite ability that kills 1 non boss/player creature every 5-10 minutes could have a ray of blue light for Saradomin aligned players, or a torrent of flames for a Zamorak aligned player.

We are united in Saradomin's light. From this unity we draw strength.

Sure, why not? Though I think the bonuses you get depending on what god you follow should be more... how do I put this...

They also confirmed that Kara-Meir, Guthix would be concerned. And Kara-Meir shown no sign of "wanna be go." Even if so Guthix would still be proud of a faction of mortal dedicated to his wish. Yes some of those mortal he would agree and disagree, but an entire faction, he'd still be proud. Also, Ux thinks the same like Kara-Meir, so he is a bad example. Again, this was from an old Q&A from a year or so ago.

Guthix would support the idea of a world without Gods (obviously) so he and the Godless share the same overall general idea. What he thinks of specific members isn't so obvious.
