God Emissaries are a group of followers, each devoted to a different god, who attempt to convert citizens of Gielinor to their religion as well. From them, players will be able to show their alignment to the god of their choice by wielding a banner and perform tasks for rewards which include experience, titles, upgrades for the banner and a level 60 hybrid helm, the Relic helm. There are nine Emissaries, each of which will give a full account of what their god represents, what these gods have been up to since the Edicts of Guthix were abolished and why players should follow that particular god.
Players cannot align with more than one god at a time. If they choose to change their alignment, the progress in terms of the emissary-related tasks would continue as usual.
Only the base banner is available to free players. Only members can do tasks for upgrades and further rewards.
Concept art of four emissaries: Endwyr, Relomia, Holstein and Moldark.
Title, god banner, and relic helm alignment will all be changed for free by talking to the emissary of a different god.
