|Reputation FAQ: Spells; Edited by Asmodeus
Spells like Paralyzation and Weaken are considered
attacks that can be reported. However, the target can
still have full hit points after these spells are cast.
How will this work?
- "Full health" is defined as having full hit points
and not being under the effect of any spells that have
adverse effects (paralyzation, weaken, etc.). Mana is
not used in determining if you are at full health. (Thus
you can never become a Murderer from casting Mana Drain
or Mana Vampire if that is the only form of attack you
How will field spells work in the Reputation system?
- Field spells will have no effect on an Innocent unless
you are flagged as a murderer, in which case you will
be flagged as a Criminal and Aggressor (to the Innocent)
and you can be reported if the Innocent dies.
If you cast a field spell directly on a Criminal or
Murderer you will be flagged as an Aggressor (to the
Criminal/Murderer). You cannot be reported if the Criminal/Murderer
dies but you also cannot report the Criminal/Murderer
if you die.
Note that directly means that the target is standing
in any of the tiles that the field occupies.
If a Criminal or Murderer steps into your field after
you cast it, you will not be flagged in any way. This
allows you to use field spells defensively against Criminals/Murderers.
If the Criminal/Murderer attacks you after walking through
the field, he/she will be flagged both as a Criminal
and Aggressor (to you) and he/she can be reported if

If you are a Murderer and the spell damages an Innocent,
you will be flagged as both Aggressor (to the Innocent)
and Criminal. If the Innocent dies, he/she can report
you. If the spell damages a Criminal or Murderer you are
flagged as an Aggressor (to the Criminal/Murderer).
- How will area effect spells like Earthquake work?
- A Murderer damaging an Innocent will result in the
caster being flagged as both a Criminal and Aggressor
(to the Innocent). The caster can be reported if the Innocent
dies. Fortunately, one improvement of the Reputation system
is that it allows victims to be a bit more forgiving.

Aggressor or Murderer flags? Will it affect targeting?

spells on a Criminal or Murderer?

Why does casting Summon Daemon lower Karma?
- The justification is 100% for role-playing. The citizens
of Britannia are afraid of Daemons. Thus they also fear
those who summon them. A good mage would not participate
in an activity that spreads fear into the world.
How has the polymorph spell changed?
- If you polymorph into a non-human form (i.e a daemon),
you will turn grey to other players, and can be attacked
without penalty. (Murderers will still remain red)
How do Mana Drain and Mana Vampire work?
- They are treated like a normal attack except that you
can never be reported as a Murderer for using them. If
you Mana Drain/Vamp an Innocent you'll be flagged as a
Criminal. If you initiate an attack with Mana Drain/Vamp
you'll be flagged as an Aggressor.
Will dispelling summoned creatures be a crime?
- No, casting Dispel Field, Dispel or Mass Dispel is
not a crime of any sort. (whether you cast it on a spell
you summoned or on a spell that someone else summoned)
