So I rediscovered the drowssap to a noob account recently, that hasn't been played in over 700 days before I rediscovered this. I've decided to repeat all my favorite content on this account... that of course being LORE! QUESTS!

but... I don't want her to be the same. I want her to be independent of Sepulchre. I want her to follow a different path.. a different god. I want her "alignment" to be different.

As one can probably tell, I am a Zarosian... Both in-character and RL. Honestly, my RL self believes a lot of things he says can be applied to the Real World, and I tend to lean towards him even out-of-character.

That's where this thread comes in.. I want someone to convince me! Convince me to follow their god (or a god, not necessarily the one you follow). I'd prefer one with a Title that relates to them (Sliske, Seren, Armadyl, Saradomin, Bandos, Zamorak, Godless..) but one that isn't Zaros.

P.S. Yes, This is a moral dilemma thread. Don't judge me.

Edit: drowssap backwards is still censored. Jagex, get with the times.

Id say Seren, but her ideals are so reminiscent of Zaros's it would seem pointless to align with her.

However Saradomin the oldest of the gods may have a different way of seeing things. Saradomin is the oldest of the "New Gods" he believes in purity of the soul and doing the right thing. He believes in peace, much like the other gods. However he knows to achieve peace one must first destroy those who threaten to break it.

The majority of Gielinor support Saradomin, perhaps as he is reminiscent of the Christian/Muslim/Jewish God we see in the real world.

His flaw seems to be he is willing to sacrifice things for the greater good, where many other gods such as Armadyl couldnt bring themselves to start wars/do this.

Theres a nice little tale by Mod Osborne which is really interesting to watch on youtube about Saradomin. If Zaros turns out to be evil I think id switch sides to either Saradomin or Seren- (Most Likely Seren) but as you want a different character all together i think Saradomin is the best way forward. The serenists are becoming more and more Godless

Read my signature =p. Instead of mindlessly following the descisions others make for you, make your own and choose your own path on what is right and wrong. If you agree with some of the views of particular gods, that is great. But instead of putting your own choice out of the equation by then following said god completely, just cooperate with that god when your views align.

Most so-called gods in runescape are not any different from mere mortals in that their views can not be distinguished as black and white as right and wrong. Therefore you should treat them likewise, helping them whenever you feel what they are doing is just and pointing out their mistakes. In doing so, you will be following your own morals and not turn into a pawn of their games.
In fact if anything this is as close as you can get to what the intention of being a World Gaurdian (and more importantly, yourself!) is ;)

Bandos. Be a selfish, warmongering, glory seeking ******* who doesn't give a damn about others opinions. Kill Zanik, have Graardor praise you and have a verbal smackdown with her in Nomad's Elegy. Worth it. Plus he's rocking the green/bronze look you don't really see anywhere else.

Worship yourself.
Face it, even gods can die.
Their ideals can be one dimensional. (or worse, the writers try to give their characters *shudders* depth.)
As for the Godless, they are a scatter brained group that doesn't get enough attention from developers led by a militant bipolar psycho. Why join a group that is pretty much the red-headed step child?

No. Be yourself.
Do what you want to.
Be what you want to be.
In the end, it is your choices that affect worlds.
Guthix chose you. Even he admits he didn't want to be worshiped and followed. Honor that.

In the end, do whatever you want, however you can, to make youhappy.

You can be as ruthless as you want 1 moment, and as giving the next. Why? Because you will it be so.
Want to be the psychotic mercenary for hire because that's what you think the world needs to stop the global threats? Do it.
Want to be the loving mother type who tries to help all those in need with a smile on your face and a pat to their head when it's over? Do it.

But be you.
Not the pawn or knight of something.
Be. You.
Follow your own hopes and dreams.
Not theirs.

I actually considered that maybe my character should be one of those... "I follow everybody, so I always win no matter who wins." people.

Zamorak. He is the only God to have come to our aid when we were faced with death (DAT), and his theory of chaos has never been more true (think of all the power you've gained since these Second God wars started). He is also the only God to have ever wounded Sliske (DAT). So if you want a God who will watch your back, give you immense power, and will make an effort to take down the enemy. Zamorak is for you.
Strength through Chaos!
