Alignment is a measure of how good you are to your god, 100 alignment being the maximum for Fo, Vynora and Magranon, -100 for Libila. An alignment of 0 is sufficient to be accepted as a Vynora or Magranon followers, however Fo requires an alignment of at least one or Fo will not accept the person as a follower. For priests, a high alignment value increases chances to successfully cast spells while a low alignment value lowers the chances. Alignment is also said to affect your fighting ability, but it is unknown by how much.
Alignment gain and loss
When alignment goes down, for whatever reason, it will drop at a value equal to 1-(Faith/200). Thus, at 0 faith one would lose 1.0 alignment and at 100 faith one would lose 0.5 alignment. This loss is halved in local range to the White light for whitelighters.
Gaining alignment points (either positive or negative) has a cool down timer. Once you have gained an alignment tick you must wait 30 minutes before you are able to gain again. Note that alignment automatically drifting towards zero does not affect this timer.
