A god is an entity that is worshipped and offered submission to by the followers of a spiritual or religious belief system. The concept may include gender, in which case the feminine form is known as a goddess. Most gods are of a supernatural nature, with their empirical existences thus being unverifiable; examples of such gods include Uzaveh, the key Andorian god, and the god known in Federation Standard simply as "God," from three major Terran religions. Other gods are in fact entities that are empirically known to exist and whom non-believers simply classify as alien life-forms; examples of these gods include the Prophets, the non-corporeal life-forms found in the Bajoran Wormhole that are worshipped by a great many Bajorans, and the Founders, the species of shape-shifters that founded the Dominion and who are worshipped by the Vorta and the Jem'Hadar. (DS9 - Worlds of Deep Space Nine novel: Andor: Paradigm; DS9 episode: "Emissary", et al.)

Q once portrayed himself as God to Jean-Luc Picard during a critical heart failure. (TNG episode: "Tapestry")

In the TNG novel: Q-Zone, a superbeing much like Q was featured, called The One. When Q asked 0 who "The One" was, 0 said "...he invented monotheism." This was hinting that The One was the God in three of Earth's biggest religions.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Gods article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Gods in RuneScape are several important characters who play a role within the game at this time. Each god has his or her own unique beliefs, character, history, followers, and domain. There are or have been at least twenty gods in Gielinor in one time or another, although many of them are unknown. The gods of Gielinor are most notable for their participation in the God Wars of the Third Age, a major conflict that nearly destroyed the entire world, and their daily role in the Prayer skill, which enables them to transfer small portions of their power temporarily to their worshippers for a variety of potent effects. Ages past, during and prior to the time of the Third Age, the RuneScape deities were capable of interacting freely upon Gielinor, which caused such unimaginable chaos that Guthix set his Edicts to prevent the Gielinor gods from ever directly interfering in the world again, influencing events only through their remaining followers. The gods are incredibly powerful beings in the RuneScape game, the oldest and most potent among them far exceeding that of any other known class or race of beings, despite each one, even Guthix himself, having limits to each their own power. It is believed that the Stone of Jas combined with the Staff of Armadyl would grant a Mahjarrat sufficient power to become a deity himself.

All of the deities currently in this realm, and some who now are no longer with us, were involved in the war.
— Saradomin

Contents

Major gods

Major gods have the largest amount of followers in modern times.

Guthix

Main article: Guthix

The god of balance and nature, and the god who shaped Gielinor after the Elder Gods created it. Although he has no specific gender, he is often referred to as male and appears as a Skull with lots of tendrills. He is thought to be the most powerful of the current gods.

Saradomin

Main article: Saradomin

The god of order and justice, and the arch-nemesis of Zamorak. His followers are almost exclusively humans in modern times. Saradomin is male and often portrayed as an old, bald man with a long beard

Zamorak

Main article: Zamorak

The god of chaos, Lord of all Darkness and the arch-nemesis of Saradomin. Originally a Mahjarrat but became a god by attacking Zaros and thus inadvertently draining away much of his power. He is known as the god of chaos, although some call him the god of evil (although, he is not inherently evil, as is stated by different NPCs)

Lesser-known gods

These gods are hardly known by anyone except the members of the race that worships them, or have been long forgotten.

Armadyl

Main article: Armadyl

Armadyl is a god who ruled the airs and skies. One of the oldest gods around, he was an ally of Saradomin during the God Wars. He is a god of law and of good, though it was hard to tell good from evil during the God Wars. It is said he wept and abandoned Gielinor after his 'precious children', the Aviantese, had been slain, although a few of them still exist in the God Wars Dungeon.

Armadyl is generally thought to have been the precursor to Saradomin, once more powerful than the latter. It would eventually come to pass that Saradomin would succeed Armadyl as a major god of RuneScape. He is thought to have the least amount of followers currently on Gielinor.

Bandos

Main article: Bandos

The god of war and of the ogres, goblins, orks, trolls and hobgoblins. He plays a major role in several quests, and is a god players can fight for in the God Wars Dungeon. He is also the God of Battle (stated in the Game Guide as a description of Bandos armour) and the Big High War God (stated in Another Slice of H.A.M. quest).

Zaros

Main article: Zaros

Also known as the Empty Lord, or the God of the Unknown Power. He was a major god before being overthrown and banished by Zamorak in the late Second Age. Before being overthrown, he supposedly ruled over most of the land in Gielinor and is recognized to be quite powerful, his name striking fear into both Saradomin and Zamorak still, millennia after his passing. He is thought to be the god of pure defilement and evil, with this supported by the various comments of multiple NPCs, though Jagex has stated explicitly that this is not the case.If you are wearing an amulet of cat speak and you talk to Bob the Jagex cat sometimes he says "I am Zar- I mean meow." However Azzanadra has confirmed that Bob the Jagex cat is not Zaros. He may have once had an alliance with the menaphite god Scabaras.

Marimbo

Main article: Marimbo

The god of the monkeys, worshiped on Ape Atoll. Once Guthix's pet but gained intelligence and somehow became a God.

Seren

Main article: Seren

The goddess of the Elves, also hinted to be the divine aspect of the Anima Mundi, worshipped in Lletya and Prifddinas.

Freneskae Creator-God

Main article: Freneskae Creator-God

The legends of the Mahjarrat speaks of an evil creator-god in their homeworld Freneskae. He is said to have combined his most fearsome creatures into the Muspah.

Flamtaer

Main article: Flamtaer

Flamtaer was a deity worshipped by a people that once inhabited the area now known as Mort'ton, most likely long before or between the arrival of the Icyene, who ruled the area during the Second Age, and the vampyre conquest of Morytania. A temple dedicated to him is used during the Shades of Mort'Ton minigame. It is highly possible that he is linked to death, fire or cremation.

Brassica Prime

Main article: Brassica Prime

Brassica Prime is the god of Cabbages. Brassica Prime could only be found in Oo'glog during the 2009 April Fool's event. Its combat level appears to be 11.

Because Brassica Prime was only seen during the April Fool's event, it is generally not included among the actual gods discussed during the course of the game. As it is something of a joke, it is not taken as seriously as the other deities.

Fremennik idols

The Kendal

Main article: The Kendal (God)

The Kendal is a being worshiped as a god by the Mountain Tribe. A man impersonates the Kendal during the Mountain Daughter quest. It is unknown if the Kendal is a fairytale, a Fremennik spirit or a real deity.

The Fossegrimen

Main article: Fossegrimen

Fossegrimen is a spirit inhabiting the sea south of Rellekka. She is worshiped by the Fremenniks as a deity. An altar where a vision of her can be summoned is used during The Fremennik Trials. It is unknown if she is a mere spirit or a real god/demigod.

Menaphite Pantheon

According to Funorb, this is the Symbol of the Menaphite Pantheon.

Only eight desert gods have been named. Four of these gods have were named gods by Tumeken during his great desert journey. They are considered to be a "family" despite not being related by blood. Many of them still walk on Gielinor.

The Desert Gods are based on the Egyptian gods (e.g., Icthlarin is based on Anubis).

In the quests they've appeared in, the Menaphites have been able to directly interfere with events on Gielinor. This suggests that they are not bound by the Guthixian Edicts.

About this image
From bottom centre clockwise: Tumeken, Icthlarin, Het, Apmeken, Crondis, Scabaras, and Amascut. The river represents Elidinis.

Tumeken

Main article: Tumeken

Tumeken is the lord of the Kharidian Desert, and is worshipped by the Menaphites. He is the husband of Elidinis, and the father of Icthlarin and Amascut.

Elidinis

Main article: Elidinis

Elidinis is the goddess of Fertility and Growth, and the wife of Tumeken. Her children are Icthlarin and Amascut. The River Elid is named after her. Elidinis is mentioned in the Spirits of the Elid quest.

Icthlarin

Main article: Icthlarin

Icthlarin is the Demigod of the Dead, and friendly with cats. He appears in the quests Icthlarin's Little Helper, and Desert Treasure. He is the son of Tumeken and Elidnis

Amascut, "The Devourer"

Main article: Amascut

The goddess of Destruction, Amascut is the sister of Icthlarin and the daughter of Tumeken and Elidnis. She appears in the Icthlarin's Little Helper quest, and uses the body of a wanderer to lure players into the city of Sophanem and steal ceremonial jars in a burial room, disturbing the spirit of the late pharaoh. She also appears in the Smoking Kills quest, when she makes a player go to rescue her "sister" (who turns out to be herself) in attempt to lure player into a trap with mighty banshees. She also hates cats because they are her former followers. They turned against her because of her large-scale destruction. They failed, and she turned them into cats.

Scabaras

Main article: Scabaras

According to Jex, Scabaras was a god who fell from grace. Of all the Gods of the Desert Pantheon (besides Icthlarin and Amascut), Scabaras is the one about which there is the most information. After the end of the God Wars, he defied the Edicts of Guthix and in the ensuing battle and subsequent banishment, he spilled his blood onto some Scarabs, turning them into Kalphites. He may have had an alliance with Zaros.

Het

Main article: Het

Het is the least strange looking of the desert gods, as he apparently resembles humans. He is the god of knowledge and body health, and tends to be quite popular with Menaphites because of this. The plague of Sophanem is not known to be the work of Het or something trying to anger him, but Het is the main perpetrator in theories made by players.

Crondis

Main article: Crondis

Crondis is a lady that has the head of a crocodile. According to Jex her main area of interest is with things that provide physical pleasure - such as food, vestments, etc. She tends to be followed by skilled cooks and hunters and other lavish people.

Apmeken

Main article: Apmeken

Apmeken is the most unpredictable and playful of the gods. She tends to appeal to people who desire mental pleasures which is often appealing to scholars and sometimes downright dishonest people. Her appearance is of a monkey or ape.

Elder Gods

Main article: Elder Gods

The Elder Gods were a race of gods that existed so long ago that even Guthix struggles to remember them. Though it is commonly believed that Guthix created Gielinor, the god of balance himself is keen to point out that the plane already existed when he discovered it. He only created Gielinor in the sense that he shaped the empty, lifeless plane it originally was into the world as it is today, adding life in the form of plants and animals as well as certain races such as gnomes and dwarves. In this light, it seems likely that it was the Elder Gods who created the plane itself. Probably surpassing even Guthix, it is safe to assume that they are exceedingly powerful.

Currently, no Elder Gods are known. Due to the immense power of the stone that bears his name, many believe that the being known as Jas is in fact an Elder God, but it has never been confirmed.

False deities

Throughout the history of RuneScape, various entities have been worshipped as gods either due to their own claims or because of misinterpretations of history.

Bob the Cat

Main article: Bob the Jagex Cat

Occasionally when talking to Bob the Jagex Cat, Bob begins to say that his real name begins with "Zar" before cutting himself off, leading players to speculate that he is actually Zaros is disguise. This is later thought to be disproven when it was revealed that he is a feline incarnation of the Fourth Age hero Robert the Strong. Furthermore, after completing The Temple at Senntisten, Dr Nabanik (Azzanadra) tells the player that Bob is not Zaros, and the player shouldn't rely on information from a cat. Despite the fact that Bob's claim appears to be only a joke on Jagex's part, a shrine dedicated specifically to him (as a separate being; no affiliation with Zaros is implied) can nonetheless be built using the construction skill.

The Evil Chicken

Main article: Evil Chicken

The Evil Chicken is worshipped as a deity by a bizarre cult in Zanaris, despite the fact that the chickens' non-godly origins have been explained in the past. The origin and worship of the Evil Chicken is mentioned in the Book on chickens. The shrine discussed in the book can be found in Zanaris.

Iban

Main article: Iban

In the recent Fifth Age, the Kinshra lord Iban was revived from the dead by the witch Kardia while living in a hut within the Underground Pass beneath the Arandar mountain range. After returning, Iban gathered a cult of Zamorakian followers and claimed to be the godly son of Zamorak himself. Although never accepted as a god by any but his followers, Iban's divinity is completely disproven when he is slain during the Underground Pass quest. In an issue of the God Letters, when asked whether Iban is actually his son or merely a lunatic who believes so, Zamorak replied "both."
