ROLEPLAYING POINTS - Lusternia Online Help

4.17 ROLEPLAYING POINTS

As you go about your business in Lusternia, you may get messages that your
character's strength of personality has decreased. This results from actions
that are considered poor roleplaying.

Using HONOURS on a player will show you what the strength of their personality
is considered to be. This information is found directly under their ranking,
and may say something like, "He is of acceptable character" or, "He is a
refreshingly credible character."

Having a poor rolepoint ranking will increase the amount of experience you
lose from various things, and decrease the amount you get from various things.
Having a good rolepoint ranking will do the opposite. Also, low rolepoints 
will have the following ramifications:

   Credible and below:     No shouts or market channel privileges.
   Dubious and below:      No city or commune channel privileges.
   Questionable and below: No guild channel privileges. 

Gaining rolepoints is generally a matter of simply being consistently in-role.
