Is Gielinor in any real danger? We have seen that we have
Vorago
, the anima defender of the planet, kill a god.
Armadyl
killed Bandos, who wanted endless war and battle all across the world.
Saradomin
, the "good" god of light and order is the most powerful young god and also has the largest following and sees mostly eye to eye with Armadyl in some ways.

We have
Seren
and the elf city fully restored and we have
Zaros
. Tier 2 gods on the planets side.

There is nothing we cant overcome as the World Guardian, we always find a solution and always prevail. There is no struggle, no failure or no penalties to anything. I find this starting to become stale. We need something to happen that might be out of our hands that will have some lasting effects and see some real actual bad things happen that we cant prevent.

Sliske doesnt want all out destruction, the apocalypse, he just is bored and wants some attention. He isnt a real threat.

We need something to really test our World Guardian status that DOESNT guarantee us a victory..

And attacking the planet, we have Vorago--who onced attacked before and may do so again--the Dark Lord, who we recently defeated, and the Empty Lord, who wishes to control our fates.

And then we have our greatest threats, Saradomin, an egomaniac who has a temper problem that has caused him to destroy and entire planet before. And Armadyl, an alien invader who wishes to conquer us all and kill everyone who opposes him.
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.

It's pretty much like in real life - there is no direct external threat to the planet that our combined forces can't defeat, but we and our squabbles are our worst problem after all.

So, the Elder Gods -- you know, the creators and destroyers of universes, who are described as dwarfing the strongest of the young gods... the eldritch beings who create and consume life on a cosmic scale... the primordial forces that threaten to turn Gielinor into a wasteland... yeah, all five of those things -- aren't enough for you? Patrolling Lore FC almost makes you wish for a Great Revision.

Basically the first half of what I was going to say.

Secondly, The fact that any opposing gods are currently active on Gielinor is a major threat. Within seconds of Zamorak appearing, he and Saradomin were locked in a bloody conflicted that lasted weeks and cost tens of thousands of lives. Sliske is no help either, with his little "contest" going on, the gods are only more willing to go after each other. We're on the verge of another God Wars, the first one lasted thousands of years, and the only thing that could cut it short would be the total destruction the Elder Gods create.

So, any REAL threats? Uhmmm... Yes!

And we have to think that even if we somehow combined the powers of all living gods... It wouldn't be enough. WEAKEST of the elders could create the two most POWERFUL young gods. And some (basically) demigods. And monsters while she dreams. And she still lives. Think about what the strongest of them can achieve! We are doomed.
NO
I do not ship ZamorakxZaros.
I follow them. And Marimbo, the best t5 god.

There are a significant amount of threats, you have the elder gods, even some of the young gods. Particularly Zamorak for a god to be nothing less than addicted to the same elder artifact that he used to blow up one of the biggest continents in Gielinor is a pretty massive threat as it stands.

But I do feel where you are coming from, it does seem like we don't really lose anymore. I guess after 15 years of Runescape and all the quests in between its just hard to ever see us being in a position where we won't come out on top.

I mean, you're technically right. They won't delete the game world, so naturally Gielinor will never be in any permanent danger.

But that's a Boring technicality, and ruins all immersion.

So yes, Lorewise The elders are a massive threat to not only Gielinor, but all that there is.

But no, from a dev perspective we're safe.

Saradomin is just as addicted... I am worried about the god wars. It needs to stop. Mortal wars are pretty harmless. But last time god wars could have destroed the world. But then Guthix Stopped it. This is the second god wars. And who is missing (dead)?

Bandos
who made the war as long as it was


(and Guthix, who stopped the war)


WHat happens without him if the god wars gets out of hand?
