Just a thought, I sort of feel like runescape currently lack a truly evil god. Zamorak used to be that evil god, but now he's more of a social-darwinist, putting forth arguments of progress through pressure, which is a fair argument, if not the most humanitarian I guess. Zaros is, atleast to me, still a bit of a mystery, but I wouldn't say he's evil, he's like a less peaceful Guthix, striving for balance in oneself and such.

I guess you could argue Sliske is evil in a joker-from-Batman kind of way, though there's really no proof of it. We don't know his intentions. Tuska is just a mindless beast, neither evil nor good. Bandos was a pretty nasty god, but he still would reward his champions, and furthermore he's dead.

I sort of think Runescape lacks a truly evil god. A god who would tear the world apart given the chance, who cannot be trusted to uphold his/her end of bargains. A true antagonist.

What do you think?

Opps, Double Toast!

Edit: You know, if they were going to add an 'evil god' it would have to be a preditor, though being able to feed off pain and misery as well would be a bonus. Then at least it would be evil by everyone's standards but its own. A Vyre-Ascendant might fit the bill, yes?

No, though the Ascension dungeon bosses are trying to create a 'Me*ha-Guthix' and they are down right evil. Let alone what an artificial God of a pack of lunatics like that would be.
Yeah, there's quite a few evil characters in Runescape, but no gods. An evil 'Me*ha-Guthix' would be intresting, although a bit silly aswell.

Double toast is twice as good as single toast.

Regarding your edit; Yeah! Something like that is what I would like to see! Something gorging itself with misery and grief.

Amascut?
Fair point, I didn't think about her. Tho she isn't a very major god. I'd like to see an throughout evil god en-par with the other major gods (god tier 2 or 3) .

Like it was said above, Amascut. Driven insane by Mah, she seems to be out to consume as much power as possible and from the sounds of it might be trying to devour as many souls as she can. She might be bughouse nuts, but yeah I'd call her Evil. Even if we can 'fix' her later on. The purpose of adventure is to shine light into dark places,

True, though as I stated before I don't feel like she's able to take on the likes of Saradomin, Armadyl or Zaros. I'd like to see a truly powerful god with an emissary, who when asked why I should join said god would only offer the reason "ohh, if you don't 'evil god' will tear out and apart your very soul and torment your body for a thousand years once he/she/it has inevitably crushed the other gods"
