Suffice to say, though, gods are somewhat trickier to deal with. When you're bringing peace to a harsh planet's small population that can barely survive even without killing each other, it's much easier to make a case for mutual cooperation.

By that logic, Zamorak should be the most cooperative of them all...
NO

Alright, you got me there...! But I think the point still stands, just with a bit of modification.

There are distinct cultural differences between the Aviansie and the Mahjarrat. The Aviansie were already in tribes when Armadyl united them -- it's not as much of a change to go from being in several tribes to one big one.

The Mahjarrat are a tribe in themselves, but one that's now so small (and so divided, first along Zamorakian/Zarosian lines and then with their own personal agendas) that it's practically every individual for themselves. And a group of individuals with different agendas, alignments, often seeing no good reason to work together... that sounds a lot more like the situation with the gods.

Also, suffice to say, Zamorak's ideology and mutual cooperation/harmony/all that jazz do not go well together. He undeniably cares deeply for his fellow Mahjarrat, and he manages to maintain strong links of loyalty with some of them, but the chaos and conflict between them are most likely to keep them apart.

Mahjarrats were not the only tribe on freneskae. There were 4 confirmed tribes and mahjarrat are the only ones known to be still alive

Yes, I never stated otherwise. Looks like we're not quite on the same page here -- I'm talking about the present day, in which you've just got Mahjarrat (and Hazeel I guess) left. That's all that's left for Zamorak to hypothetically unite, a la Armadyl. And while it's clear Zammy cares about 'em, they're ultimately very divided, very individualistic.

To clarify what I said earlier: there's a big difference between uniting a few smallish tribes and uniting a few remaining individuals. The tribes of Abbinah were already adapted to life in groups, so it's not too far of a leap to a bigger group (even if there were a few who resisted it). But the Mahjarrat are individualistic, agenda-driven and divided, so getting those strong individuals to form a cohesive group would be a monumental task -- similar to the task of uniting the gods.

(I guess in this respect, Kharshai is kinda the Mahjarrat version of Armadyl...! Though not exactly the same, for obvious reasons.)

Mybe all children of mah would have been easier to unite before there were only one tribe left
