I like how you just bashed Atheists on the internet, for bashing people on the internet.

I love how he's unable to tell fact from fiction. RS is a game where you MEET THE GODS IN PERSON and there's legitimate, in-game, EVIDENCE for their actions. Claiming the godless=atheists IRL is ignoring the fact that we atheists are right when we say that there's no evidence for god(s).

Good. Never let anyone think differently

Hey, for once I get to see stupid real life comparisons before they get hidden by a forum mod.

also atheists are the only ones who are right lol

RoP, first and foremost, because we still don't have any Armadyl-centred quests and this idea has been floating around for years. (All aboard the hype train!) Apart from that, though, I really want a Dragonkin quest. SE has raised a lot of questions:
Is the curse broken now that the Catalyst is destroyed? Have the Necrosyrtes reverted to their former selves? Are the Dragonkin really "an error" like Jas claims, or can they be redeemed? Can we at least convince Kerapac not to aggravate Jas any further now that she's awake?
Seems like enough questions to warrant a quest, although I suppose the odds of us getting a Dragonkin-focussed SE sequel are pretty low.

The funny thing is, I don't actually think the Elder Artefacts can really be destroyed.

Let's take a look at the Catalyst. After SE, Relomia gives us three Catalyst fragments, and during DAT we have the choice of allowing Nomad to take a piece of it for himself. This suggests that Artefacts can only be shattered or broken into pieces instead of actually being destroyed, and even breaking the whole thing into pieces takes a power similar to that of tier 2 godhood.

Then we have the Blade, which Guthix stated he couldn't destroy entirely, only break into pieces. Then he picked up some of the pieces and made the World Gate for Gielinor, and may have experimented with other pieces on Zanaris to try and make another Gate. The problem with that was that the fairies have an innate magical energy of their own which could have disrupted the fragments of the Blade, and the shards may have been imprinted or encoded in the fairy rings.

The curse may still be intact, but it might feel more like multiple itches to the Dragonkin rather than one huge surge of rage making them hell bent on killing a False User. Which leaves the question; what happens for people who use the fragments of the Stone? I've been worried about the effects of this, so I avoided using the fragment rewards from the Endgame altogether.

This is definitely not the place for a religious debate so I will keep it as close to the game as I can in the comparison.
Yes, I do agree atheists are right when they say there is no evidence for gods. Saying the opposite would be ignoring a fact, as we indeed have no evidence a god or gods existed on Earth. But, where I see a similarity between atheists (The one I am aiming at are Atheists Gnostics) and Godless is the will to eliminate the notion of gods.
The methods are of course different : Atheist Gnostic is often summarized by "I do not believe any god exist and that would be dumb to think otherwise", so dismissing others' opinions right of the bat ; And the Godless want to kill/boot all gods out of Gielinor to say "Nope, no gods here !". And in the vision I have (and was given throughout the game) about the Godless, I would not find too far-fetched for them, if they ever succeeded in getting rid of the gods, to destroy every evidence gods existed on Gielinor just to say they never were there in the first place to prove their point.

Making a parallel between reality and fiction does not mean you merge both.

^ We were all joking, and know what you meant.

Let's get back on track, guys.

So far, it looks like Armadyl, Ser Owen, and Godless are winning for the next Quest, in that order.

That's anti-theism, not atheism.

That is a terrible summary, and there are almost no gnostic atheists anyway so it's a moot point. You have no idea what you're talking about.

Worthless straw man of the Godless which has nothing to do with atheism. Your vision of the Godless is only mildly supported by Kara-Mier, who isn't even close to representing the entire faction.

Well, my must have list tops with DoCII, followed by RoP.

Death of Chivalry was a great quest, good questions on morality, and was the start of really humanizing Saradomin. I'd love to continue those aspects and also see what I can do about the whole Centaur situation (if it's viable, I'd love to save their race. If not...well, I'll have to figure something out). Maybe see if the World Guardian can't continue to try and be a good influence on Saradomin as well (the better a person/god Saradomin is, the better for the world I say). Help him overcome some of those character flaws, at least a little bit.

Rite of Passage is just overdue at this point. I'd love to explore the homeworld of the Aviansie, and learn more of Armadyl's character and history. Seems like a good god, would be down with helping him out. Plus, the setting sounds amazing. A land of floating islands? I'd love to explore that.

Also, if possible, let's get a quest to open up access to the Skull. I want to explore the east more, see old friends, liberate islands from corrupt Khans, and get me some Gunpowder to make some kickass weapons.

I'm onboard with those poll results. I want to see Armadyl's homeworld and learn of the artifact he's hidden for so long. DOC for more Saradomin or Godless for them being relevant and hopefully meeting their actual leader instead Kara-mier, who I thoroughly despise. (Undead Zanik for godless leader 2017)
