Saradomin's negative portrayal over the years is starting to show, big time. While I do like the character, I admit that things like the Naragi incident or Garlandia don't make the big blue guy look as noble as he could be portrayed. I personally blame this on trying to overdo showing Saradomin as a flawed character.


Agreed. From the Saradomin Lore podcast it became pretty clear that the reason they went for incidents like that they didn't have really much lore behind them and were more one sided were for the sake of balancing world events, and in retrospect it was successful because he did come in last place in the Tuska event and had the biggest drops in player support among any god.

Now in order to know Saradomin isn't the evil god of RS you have to truly be well versed in all forms of lore from qnas to jmod quotes to obscure pieces of lore. But they say they are going to try and change that, and only time will see if they will succeed or fail.
I actually started off as a Saradominist until I met Azzanadra. I still think there's good in him, which is actually proven in Death of Chivalry when Sir Owen comes back as half corrupted, not fully. And he's human as well, so he's quite easy to understand and relate to. They will succeed in it; they managed to make Zamorak look good after all.

Probably doesn't surprise anyone, but if you take a look at how much Armadyl gained compared to how much Saradomin lost, it seems clear where they've been going. And honestly, I think it's the lack of content that makes Armadyl more popular among lorehounds. He's basically painted as "Holier Saradomin".

It's a circle at this point. Being a Saradomin 2.0 coupled with the fact that Jagex all but said he wasn't really important to the story has made him an uninteresting character. He needs content, but is so boring that people aren't interested in supporting it. This in turn makes him less interesting and further prevents people from supporting Armadyl quests when other options, such as a Seren quest, are available.
Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

I really like Saradomin as a character. I instantly hated him when it was revealed that he had a hand in the destruction of Naragun (rip Guthix </3), but now that I've read more about him I think he's definitely a character who should be expanded upon, especially since we know so little about him. As for Armadyl, it'll be interesting to see how he develops after defeating Bandos (he did seem a little barbaric during the final cutscene).

Doesn't prove anything. You can quote and edit someone else's quotes to make them look bad.

Ancient Drew somehow found it within himself to respond to your idiocy with civility and patience, inviting you to take a look at one of his threads. At the same time, he didn't bother deleting part of the quote tree to condense the post, and his post is unedited.

It's safe to say he did not edit anything you wrote. A pointless act of sabotage, since almost everything you type is an embarrassment already.
Thank you for the support, I appreciate it. My invitation stands for everyone as well, so please feel free to take a look at it any time. :)
