Main / Religion / Alignment


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 followers with 20 or more faith, the following boosts of +2.5% to +10% characteristic gain are scaled by alignment:

Deity Body strength Body stamina Body control Mind logic Mind speed Soul strength Soul depth

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.

Warning: Priests who lost all their alignment towards their god will lose priesthood and their faith will drop to 0.

Alignment gain and loss

Alignment will automatically go towards 1 over time for whitelighters, and -1 for blacklighters.

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.
