Excommunicated?

Like you ***** up so badly, and the god that leads your faction is like "I've had enough of your ****, get the **** out."

Is that even possible?

Can you still be excommunicated, even if you are vital to the faction? ('cause no one else is immune to god magic)

Technically, yes.
But it's not part of the game mechanics since you can literally switch god factions just as easily as you can change shirts or hair color .... in game.

According to Nomad in Nomad's Elegy, apparently we're a pawn of all of the gods anyways, so it's not like it makes much difference either way.

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.

Good. Never let anyone think differently

Lol. Giving Aegon a run for his money in the edgelord department, aren't you?
Patrolling Lore FC almost makes you wish for a Great Revision.

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. I just have a habit of stroking my ridiculously huge ego.

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.

But since there current;y isn't a game mechanic for excommunication for the World Guardian from any faction ... you canonically cannot get excommunicated by anyone ... other than yourself.
