From what we know, Saradomin's "extermination" of the Zarosians was limited to imprisoning Nex and taking the lands of what he believed to be a dead god. Things that Zamorak, Bandos and Armadyl were also guilty of. And the Zarosian empire wasn't exactly a good place to live, especially for the humans. Maybe Saradomin thought he was doing the right thing by taking control of an empire where civilians were routinely eaten and tithed by demons and vampyres? The worst you can probably attribute to him is some of his followers covering up the existence of Zaros.


It's also worth noting that when Desert Treasure was written, Zaros was very much intended to be a villainous character. And Saradomin and Zamorak were the only prominent gods, which is why they were specifically namedropped.
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

Regarding the Zarosian "genocide", the only things that Saradomin is said to have done are capturing the Zarosian's land (Eblis), attacking Senntisten at the same time as Zamorak (Book of the Gods), imprisoning Nex (GWD). There's literally nothing in the game that says Saradominists went around and killed innocent Zarosian citizens while kicking puppies. Just that he took land and imprisoned Nex, which Zamorak, Bandos, and Armadyl also did.

I really don't get what's up with this huge double standard you guys have towards Saradomin? You go around bashing him for stuff that pretty much every other god did, or at least something comparable (or even worse in many cases).

Saradomin destroyed a city?
Zamorak destroyed a continent, Bandos destroyed a planet.

Saradomin took Zaros's land?
So did pretty much every other god. Zaros himself was set on worldwide conquest before the betrayal, and had already invaded much of the Kharidian Desert.

Saradomin ripped the wings off an Icyene for (supposedly) refusing to go to war?
Zaros performed experimentation on Icyene, Aviansie, Demons and Vampyres, Seren (accidentally) cursed the elves with death unless they were close to her, Zamorak cursed an entire race of people because he wanted an army.

Armadyl's pretty much the only god that doesn't have a huge list of atrocoties to their name, besides being a moron and sending a nearly extinct race into a war against a vastly superior foe that he logically should not have won.
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

Okay hold up. I don't think you know what your talking about. I encourage you to go through my profile. Look for this so called double standard. I suspect you will find that I "bash" all the gods.

Regardless, if I do have double standards, it is irrelevant to the current assignment of deducing whether or not Saradomin committed genocide, so why bring it up?


I wasn't referring to you, just to the general sentiment certain people seem to have :P.
