A common theme in the world of roleplaying games is the eternal struggle between Good & Evil; the concept is no stranger to Lensmoor, in fact, it has been expanded upon.
ALIGNMENT Alignment is a sort of measure of your character's world view. Good deeds will tend to make you 'good', while doing evil ones will make you 'evil'. Several game elements are based on alignment. Many items can only be used by certain alignments. Some spells have greater effects on characters of certain alignments. Many of the game's religions require your character to maintain a given alignment. Some languages can only by learned by certain alignments. There are 4 alignments: Good - representing selflessness, good deeds, and the path of light Neutral - the path of balance, and moderation Evil - Selfishness, greed, 'me first' Chaos - Active change, lack of stagnation, NOT whimsy or "do what i want" In terms of your 'score' command, alignments are represented as follows: Pure -\ -\ Good >- Good \ Pious -/ \ Kind -\ \ Neutral >- Neutral >- Chaos Mean -/ / Corrupt -\ / Evil >- Evil / Diabolic -/ -/ Good deeds include: slaying evil monsters, healing other players, donating valuable equipment for lower level players. Evil deeds include: slaying good monsters, killing any mob of significantly lower level than you, casting necromantic spells, proffering, and stealing Chaotics must change alignment often based on number of hours played.

All of the above aligns are covered under CHAOS, however chaotic religions will require you to change your align fairly actively to maintain any holy powers you receive, there is also a random chance your holy powers will not work when cast on others should you follow chaos. Likewise a Good person can't cast beneficial holy spells on an evil, and vice-versa.
There are up-sides and down-sides to every path you choose, and maintaining your position within a religion will for the most part require to to maintain the alignment of your god or goddess.
