Dev Blog - Reputation

Ravendawn offers countless paths of customization for your character, however, few are as impactful on your experience as Reputation.  

In Ravendawn, the choices you make during quests, missions, and NPC interactions will shape your character in one of three paths: Order, Criminal, or Mercenary. Will you fight for justice, spread chaos, or simply focus on your own profits? Whatever you decide, is up to you, but your decisions will carry on your character forever.  

In the world of Ravendawn there are 3 primary reputation paths that shape your character. Order, Mercenary & Criminal.  

No person is simply good or simply evil. Everyone is a complex being and this is reflected in our Reputation System. You are not locked into simply one reputation path, and will likely progress your character through each path to some degree, while you may indeed focus more on whichever path you choose with your actions.

Your Reputation will not only change how you interact with certain NPC's around the world, but it will also change how you interact with certain locations and environments.

 

How to gain Reputation Exp?

Gain 15 Order Reputation by killing a Murderer.

Gain 5 Mercenary Reputation when turning in your own Tradepack.

Gain 5 Criminal Reputation when you turn in the Tradepack of someone you killed.

Quests Choices and Responses - Every quest in the world of Ravendawn has tough choices. How you handle these decisions will progress one of your reputation paths.

Random NPC interactions - Many NPC's in the world of Ravendawn offer additional small dialogues and discussions which will also progress certain reputation paths.

Order
 

Uphold the justice of this new world through Order. Defending the weak from the wolves and fighting for the welfare of all, your honorable reputation precedes you. Though this path may not always yield the largest immediate reward, the respect you earn affords other perks that are surely worth their weight in gold. Those drawn to the way of Order seek a life of virtue, gaining valor through their actions and bringing light to Ravendawn’s darkest corners. Choose Order, and watch wickedness flee before you.
