My hope this is only meant to be a taste of future content for emissaries rather than one and done. Something along the lines of being able to upgrade helm/gear/banner further.

What's the deal with the godless emissary?
Am I joining the godless or the Sioux Nation?
You would have thought he would have been one of the druids or a gnome or a dwarf, or even a nordic barbarain, but not a native american.
When did they get into runescape?

Yeah in the state that this is in currently, it's very disappointing. Oh well, I guess we'll see how this evolves as the future god content is released.

Book is nice, I enjoyed a couple of the tasks - creating the artifact for the skill based one in particular. That said there wasn't really much there, and emissaries was the only update from the BTS that had the potential for any degree of substance. I assume game content is suffering because of RS3, although I feel like I've been making excuses for why game content is so lacking for the better part of a year now...

Didn't think I'd find "run around and do a bunch of menial tasks for crappy xp rewards" so fun.

I'm pretty sure that the realm Moia goes into through Daemonheim is Freneskae. Jagex used a lot of similar descriptions when referring to it.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

I was quite disappointed on the godless faction.
Not what I expected it to be.
I'm gonna go with either Seren or Sliske, not much known but better than godless. And the other gods were douches in TWW.

Proud owner of the following skillcapes: Defence, Hitpoints, Strength, Attack, Magic, Summoning, Ranged, Slayer, Prayer and Herblore.
I drift in and out, trying some update that interests me.

Exactly as other keepsaked worn items - by activating them from that tab. Further than that I'm not sure what you're asking. So far it seems they can only be used with the same weapon type, IE longsword for longsword. You may have a 1-hand or 2-hand weapon and an off-hand or shield, but that's it - you can't get an off-hand and shield, for example.

I think they pretty much had to make the Godless disappointing--if they were as appealing as they were in TWW, 70% of players would pick them.

I'm glad I found a god, at least. I was originally going to be one of the Godless, but I just find Seren so appealing after all this lore.

They have the bandos and zaros colors mixed up on that map, that or apparently the ogres of Oo'glog are very secretive of their worship of the Empty Lord. Speaking of which, I'm considering following Seren instead, though I'm doing the tasks for Zaros (Not that it matters); not digging the whole fascism vibe. That was there before, but it seems much more blatent now with this bunch of new lore, Seren just seems the most caring about us mortals.

*reading Book of Bandos*

Wow, Bandos is a douche.

But he is consistent, I appreciate that.

Saradomin is annoying, I actually find Zamorak more reasonable. Saradomin seems really Christian to me, a jealous god etc. - Zamorak would at least recognize that other gods simply took opportunities, even if he disagreed with the lot.

Also, Zaros as god of Fate, me likes. That's an important job.

On the map with worshippers, Meirditch is Saradominist. Interesting - apparently the vyre god is not the biggest there. Not surprising considering the numbers, but the power balance is definitely in favour of vyres.

==

On the whole, the lore aspect seems unbalanced. It is hard to tell the difference between different gods sometimes. I read:
Bandos - War, fighting, basically for fun? Easy message, understood. Also the (physically?) strongest should rule, which is basically a non-policy where gods are concerned, because there's no way he can enforce that.
Seren - Hide away from trouble in an impregnable fortress/city. Understood. Protect followers - ok.
Godless - Gods go home. Understood. Protect ourselves.
Saradomin - Banish all other gods. Understood. Protect followers.
Zamorak - Go for what you want, do what you want, sort of individualistic, opportunistic philisophy. Understood.
Armadyl - Will protect everyone following him? That's what all the others promise as well.
Sliske - Uh... what? Unknown plans, questionable divinity.
Zaros - It's been preordained, but his plans are beyond us. Not war or destruction anyway.

The last three in particular are a big vague. The first five are good.
