Gods don't excommunicate me. I excommunicate them.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.
Yes...for example: Aegon, he's given Zarosians such a bad name that no Zarosian considers him one of their own anymore. Sure he's still got the in-game stuff but as far as debates and anything else goes Aegon's got less credibility than a Sliskean.

I never consider myself as a part of any faction. I might have joined one, but I see that more as 'supporting', rather than 'following' or 'being a part of'. If by any chance a faction leader has had enough of me, I might leave them alone. But only if I feel like it and if they ask really nicely.
I think an important part of being world guardian is following your own path. Now if you choose that path to be the same as that of any god that's fine. But I encourage everyone to keep an open mind.
'If there is no one left to stand behind, then I will have to stand alone.'

I'm sure you could find many examples of me being an "edgelord", though this is not one of them.

You're starting to cross roleplaying with lore. The player character is what you make it. Each player is different. So how you approach the religious god following aspect is frankly your own business.
If you prefer the "follow [insert god] devoutly" and you feel that thou art the right hand of [insert god] in times of crisis. But along the way, you feel a decision you make in your gameplay/choices would be blasphemous or treasonous to your god (such as in Death of Chivalry, you opt not to give the Wand of Resurrection to Saradomin, even though you feel yourself as a devout Saradominist. Or if you follow Zaros, but in Fate of the Gods you give Zaros a Light Simulcron despite knowing what it would do to him) ... then yeah ... you could be excomminicated.
Others might follow the "every other Runesday" approach to faith. Yeah you go that way, you just may not follow or agree with 100% of the tenants of the faith. but it is close enough to you that you feel comfortable with it. But if you felt you did something too ... off .. then it would be based on if you felt what you did was right or wrong in your own judgement, and if the [insert god] felt that your actions warranted excommunication, then it would be up to you whether it's a good, bad, or neutral thing to happen to you.
Most of the rest of us aren't that immersed into our character enough to do that.
