Change alignment so that it is constant based on guild affiliation:

I can't help but agree with what Nils said recently, I vote to implement immediately!

To wit viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5591 —the suggestion Nils made sometime back about alignment change (a month or so ago it seems). Why not tether alignment to whatever guild you're in so goodies can grind the good spots too? Vote now.

More grindspots or not, for several goodie guilds hunting all these places is horrible RP.
I wouldn't want to break my characters' standing or reputation over some extra XP.

Why not remove alignment completely then? Wouldn't make much sense to keep it. :)
Also why make Genesis even more of a grindfest, than it is today?

It does not entirely suck. Just make evil align as hard to grind (and easy to lose) as good align, and then we'll be talking.

I think that if you want to preserve RP aspects for guilds you'd probably want something like the prestige system in the Knights or what Heralds and Order of the Stars have, where killing NPCs of a wrong alignment would actually set you back in the guild.
Time is precious. Waste it wisely.

No, RP and code is not the same.

I could play a Knight that wasn't able to kill in Qualinost, even if I had no love for elves. Might even hate them. Code would prohibit me from RPing that part.
And then I could decide that the parents of the character were Thanarians, so for that reason I would RP a wish to never fight in the kabal cathedral, even if I codewise wouldn't have an issue with it.

One is following game rules, other is following my own rules. It is not the same.


And I agree with Tarangoatwalker...
Why is there still this huge difference between how hard it is to go one way or the other on alignment?

And if your answer is: "Because you're killing things, and killing is evil."
Then give me a way to grind-feed the hungry, that can change my alignment to holy, in minutes. About the same amount of time it takes to become evil.
But the game is based on killing, so using the RL idea of killing being evil is just moronic.

"Implement it ASAP"

Are you gonna code it?
