Do you think alignment means anything to a being like Xau-Tak?

Tumeken, I think, is an amalgamation of the lower Pantheon if they are indeed pieces of him. And he did have Temekel on his side while Hazeeling himself to raze his own lands in order to put the Zarosians off. If anything, I think he's like a protective version of Zamorak or Zaros, teaching his people to grow stronger and wiser through natural punishment. But from what I gather, he's possibly the most subtle of the gods.

There's a bit of a flaw in the way you're phrasing this question. Our gods aren't exactly "the god of X" they are instead gods that hold certain values close.

Armadyl, for example, is referred to as the god of justice. But this doesn't mean he has any dominion of justice as a concept, nor is he empowered by it. He is, instead, an aviansie that has ascended and holds the concept of justice close to his ideology, much as any other leader has certain values as important to them.

Even Bandos, the big high war god, is referred to as that because he considers war to be the pinnacle of achievement and entertainment. He enjoyed war, he reveled in it, not because he embodied the concept, but because he thought it was good.

So to think of the Queen of Ashes as "the goddess of X" is going to lead you down a false path.

A better wording would be to think "what values does the Queen hold dear?" or "What is her agenda?".

Remember that our gods are ascended mortals, not (in most cases, there are exceptions) being born divine.

This is actually what I was trying to say, but I lacked the eloquence to actually word it this way. Thank you for clarification! ^_^

(Thank you for being awesome)

Based on what we know of her and her followers, she seems like she'd self-style in a somewhat intentionally ironic (on her part) way as the Goddess of the Damned -- all those downtrodden and oppressed individuals whom she draws in. It almost sounds like something one of her enemies -- whom her followers and likely herself would likely view as oppressors or tyrants -- would call her, and she takes the name herself as a point of reclamationish pride.

Wonder if we're going to go toe-to-toe with her now that we've got "World Guardian" aka Super Saiyan mode. Glad the enchantment Guthix gave us wasn't completely useless.
We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

I was a little disappointed. I was hoping it would do something more than 100% adrenaline, and reduced cooldowns.

...

Even if our powers were some type of anima magic, limited to just a cutscene, I think I would have liked that a bit better.
