What options did you go with and why, how did they turn out, and what info did you get from Jas???
Mine were:
Told Icthlarin I'm honored
Sided with Armadyl
Told Saradomin I hated Sliske
Lied to Saradomin about supporting him to get info, Told him I did indeed think he was a fool when he caught my lie.
Saradomin wouldn't tell me how he ascended or his plans for end game because I wasn't a loyal enough follower. Told him I was sorry for the loss of his wife because taunting him about that would just be an awful thing to do.
Asked Seren what happened instead of telling her not to trust Zaros, she just said she didn't want to talk about it. Didn't call her a monster because she isn't and that would be absolutely horrible. Also being Tier 2 herself she could probably fry me shield or not if I majorly pissed her off.
Vouched for Kerapac because even though he clearly rigged the fire that shot us down in one of a kind I don't want him aware I distrust him as that wouldn't do me any good. In any case he isn't likely to lose his mind and go insane and attack the gods.
I said I wanted no one to claim the stone as I want it destroyed to prevent its misuse. To which Sliske said that was boring and made me pick a side again! While I myself am Godless because I oppose the gods I do not want the Godless faction to have it, nor do I want to personally watch the stone because I couldn't protect it. I don't think Armadyl could protect it either even though I agree with his plans, even with Icthlarin and myself backing him up. I feel Zaros would still probably be able to seize it, but that said I don't trust Zaros at all so I picked the Dragonkin because they would stop others from using it and are the intended security mechanism, at least for now. Armadyl was disapointed I betrayed him and did not support his claim to the stone. I still intend to support him in the conflict but I do not think his guards would be immune to its power, nor do I think it would be fair/safe to leave the

Dragonkin to suffer. Also the Dragonkin were surprise guests and I had no way of knowing about the option to help them before the choice was given.
I called for calm in the maze because fighting is what Sliske would want and I'm not sure what his game is yet so better to play it safe.
Asked Saradomin what he was pulling when he agreed with me about keeping calm because I don't trust him at all and expect him to launch a sneak attack and screw everything up.
Discouraged the fighting again.
Calmed down my rant because everyone was listening and I didn't want to push it too far when the job was done.
Told ZimZam he should listen to Seren in hopes they could not hate each other forever.
Urged Seren to listen to Armadyl and told her the merge would be a good idea. I don't actually know that it will be, I just know Armadyl intends to do what is right and wants to help both their people so I put my faith in that even though it was a little forward of me to meddle and suggest they do so.
Suggested Seren and Saradomin speak, offered to act as a mediator because I was curious and also don't want peace to break down and Seren and Saradomin can both be unpredictable. I suggested Saradomin continue (neutral) because he would never withdraw and I didn't see the point in needlessly angering him and putting the current peace in jeaprody. As a result the two parted on good terms.
I chose to say nothing when I got the stone as I did not obtain it to rejoice or strike fear into the gods. I said I would seal the stone away.
I asked Sliske to see reason even though I knew he wouldn't because I wanted to give him every chance possible.
Told Jas I didn't have much of a choice and trying to kill each other is sometimes common.
For my one question I asked what the other Elder artifacts were and she said:
The Codex
The Template
The Needle
The Hammer
And the rest we know.

I told Seren about my conversation with Jas because I figure she didn't know where Zaros was and the information is important. As one of the Gods that make a positive impact on the world hopefully it will motivate her to do some extra good.
I told Icthlarin he wasn't a burden and tried to say that I heard Sliske laughing in hopes he might have a way to help, or be on the lookout for one once he knew, but was prevented from doing so.
I took the gentle approach. Torturing a broken person is unforgivable. I told her the truth because loss is something that needs to be faced head on to heal. Aaaaand he straight up took over and let her know he was alive, which means he is far more alive than I thought, and also perhaps that he cares about her, or requires her for whatever game he is playing now.

edit: posting this at 1:30am on a work night so I will get under 4 hours sleep. As a result I've just posted a rough draft of my thoughts and will edit it to make it cleaner tomorrow after work. Excellent quest 10/10 (Maze was super difficult, wandered around in it lost for hours until I learned the trick of looking for the open rooms to trigger cutscenes and puzzles, also abusing my minimap size to be obnoxiously enlarged)

Told Zamorak I'd side with him, though I sided with myself. I was honest with Saradomin and Armadyl that I was curious/wanted to use the information against them since I generally don't like lying. Told Seren not to trust Zaros--I'm sure she didn't need to hear it, but that aura of theirs never truly wears off. I called her a monster because she needs to hear it until she stops pitying herself and admits she screwed up. It's nothing personal.

Warned against Kerapac because he's almost as self serving as Zaros. I don't reget it. The bastard destroyed my stone. I ended up siding with myself....sorry Zamorak, but that's where my priorities are.

I fought with Zamorak against Saradomin, because Saradomin needs to be humbled. I sided with Zamorak again when he met Seren. I'm sorry, but she needs to keep hearing this...at least until she stops making excuses and focuses on redeeming herself. She did this with the elves and I applaud her for it, but she has a blind spot where Mah's concerned and she needs to recognize it for her sake and everyone else's.

Can you imagine how Zamorak and the Mahjarrat are feeling about their "mother"?

I told Seren to listen to Armadyl. I didn't regret it. Armadyl actually had a good idea, though I suggested they continue to talk it out to iron out the finer details. Though I still consider Armadyl an enemy, he was a lot more mature in this quest. I still made fun of him, partly because I couldn't resist a "fried chicken" joke and partly because I am, how you say, kind of a dick. I sided with Char, because Azzanadra...is kind of an idiot.

Raced with Armadyl, won, declared that I would rule the world...and then that jackass destroyed my stone. Rotten son of a bitch. I agreed with Sliske...not because I like him or want to show my support, but because after all that's happened, this has been anticlimatic and I want something exciting to happen already.

I asked Jas how she felt about Zaros. "A child." I agree.
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 missed two cut-scenes damn it because I clicked in the maze. But the 3 deities who greeted me at the end were first: Saradomin, Seren than Icthlarin? What is that supposed to mean? I alternated between Seren and Saradomin as the safest guards for the stone of jas, no offence I didn't "trust" Armadyl but that doesn't mean I dislike him. But I made my decision, picked Saradomin anyway when I asked if it would affect the main storyline. I just thought if he had the stone it was risky because last time his staff got stolen when he hid it the same way he proposes to hide the stone.

Calmed Saradomin and Zamorak from fighting, helped Armadyl lock up a dragonkin. Made Saradomin and Seren talk. Stood by Seren when Zamorak wanted to attack them. Allowed Saradomin to get the stone, why would my own deity want to "race me" for the stone lol when its clear I am gonna give it to them?

What are their appearances at the end to greet you determined by? Saradomin showed up saying something along the lines of that he came to check if I was alright.

Lied against Saradomin, he was able to sense it and got angry. Sided with the Black Knights in the labyrinth aswell. Respected the rest of the gods and sided with Zaros. Also told Icthlarin and Death that I'm honored.

Vouched for Kerapac and caged the Dragonkin which made it angry as usual. Throughout the maze I rejected Icthlarin first but had guilt and still brought him with me. Tried to avoid conflict between most gods by staying neutral and mentioning Sliske, except Saradomin and Zamorak. I felt like Zamorak had to win against Saradomin for once in a way :P. At the end I had to race against Armadyl but didn't make it first. Asked Jas why.

This quest changed my view on the gods dramatically.

Somebody who has worked as a Justicar on Teragard a human homeworld for years and years as a mortal, and has had to have to deal with the most dangerous and seemingly unstoppable levels of corruption is obviously going to be able to tell if your lying. Theory on how he knew.

It's interesting, I've brought this up with folks in game, and as far as I've been able to find, I'm the only one who decided to support the Dragonkin in the game (c'mon, you guys must be out there!)

Out of all the options listed, including myself, they're the only ones who I could absolutely trust not to use the Stone, not to be corrupted, because the central impetus of their existence is to prevent its use at all costs. I suppose I was vindicated, as they did "get" it in the end, if not in the way I expected.
