Representatives on both sides of the ongoing legal procedures between the Gielinor Association for Religions Getting Legal Equality (a religious rights group) and Xuan (proprietor of the Loyalty Programme Shop in Varrock and Burthorpe) announced today that the parties have reached a settlement.

The lawsuit was originally filed last Wintumber in response to Xuan's release of two new auras, Salvation and Corruption, and two emotes, Divine Power and Infernal Power, each themed around the two gods Saradomin and Zamorak. Representatives of Guthix objected, alleging discrimination against followers of one of RuneScape's three most popular religions.

After a long legal battle, Xuan has agreed to add a third aura, Harmony, and a third emote, Nature's Might, to his stock, issuing the following statement:

The Loyalty Programme Shop strives to satisfy consumers. We know that you want only the best in auras, emotes, recolors, outfits, and titles, and we're proud to deliver nothing less than the finest products available. To that end, we are pleased to announce that the Loyalty Programme Shop will now be offering Guthix-aligned emotes and auras in addition to its bestselling Saradomin and Zamorak lines.

Here at the Loyalty Programme Shop, we believe in free religion, and it is our hope that other businesses will follow our lead and expand their wares as well.


After the settlement was announced, representatives of Armadyl and Zaros immediately filed a similar suit, and representatives of Bandos immediately threatened Xuan with hefty blunt weapons. Representatives of the various minor gods of RuneScape have issued a joint statement saying that they are currently not pursuing legal action, except for the High Priest of Scabaras, who declined to comment.

UPDATE: Several major gods have responded to the settlement via Twitter:

The name "troacctid" is an acronym for "The Ratio of A Circle's Circumference To Its Diameter" which of course is Pi. Hence the nickname.
