It was getting off to a good start as the Guthixian replacement but due to panic they might be better supported by players than Zaros, Devs set out to sabotage the faction thinking they could build it and their story up over time afterwards. They intended to have an effect and control all the outcomes.

Oh they had an effect alright. DOA, and they have been resuscitating them ever since. It did pick up a bit after the Tuska event, so maybe things will turn out well enough in the end. But it maybe too little too late, for something that should have been an Age long story line of Gods and Mortals....that became just about gods due to, in my opinion, mismanagement at the start.

The Last thing this forum needs is another pitiful little soul that dreams themselves oppressed because of their faction.

There was no "Sabotage". You're just being impatient for your time in the story.
Every idea and possible link to Guthix and the Godless was shot down decisively. Every possibility to a link with the Vorago was derided, though later reversed years later so they had an association, probably so the Godless could at least take part. Invention was supposed to be what the Godless had to put them on a more even footing, but they bowed to pressure and so the godless were written off as a rag tag bunch of - well I am sure you msu remember that yourself.

I take heart that such things have finally passed from active memory and maybe now they are going to get a more intimate connection to the Anima Mundi that the problems of the past are now behind us.

As for our time in the story, we at least had Tuska,no much of a story maybe but things are at least looking up.

No the godless are not oppressed or sabatoged. Vorago should not be a member of the Godless and he never should have been associated with them at all. But with that said, yes, the Godless are severely lacking in content. The entirity of Sliske's Game--basically the Sixth Age God Wars--passed without them.
And as I tried to point out, tat was as they were being introduced and is in the past. Your phrasing shows you to think I meant currently. Though the lack on involvement other thatn as background barbarians running around in their birthday suits to get covered in dung by the locals doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

The 6th Age has past with their only involvement being Tuska. I had great hopes they would be one of the factions in the GWD2 dungeon, they did have abroad species membership after all. But we'll have to wait and see. At least now that the Morytania story is wrapped up those species can get more involved with the current story of Gielinor as well.

Yeah I prefer if they didn't have association with Vorago and had their own OP being who stands for their cause.
Well if they do get a connection to the Anima then I'd say that opens the door for them to make something along the lines of Guardians.

What makes you think they might get a connection to the anima mundi?
It was a suggestion thrown about a little while after...Tuska I think. I just hope it has not been brushed aside or forgotten. Not a player suggestion but ....Mod Osbourne...maybe? Hard to remember exactly, so many streams and vids to keep straight :P.
