Fractured Online Tackles Alignment in the Latest Blog Post

The developers of MMORPG Fractured Online have shared a new blog post dedicated to competitive gameplay and also tackling such topics as character alignment, karma and PVP.

In Fractured Online, all characters are categorized as Good, Neutral or Evil. Built on the classic D&D moral scale, it is also known as the character alignment. Just as characters can change by gaining experience and developing their skills and talents, they can also change in terms of their Alignment. The options you have to choose from, however, may be restricted by your choice of race and location, as well as your karma.

Each race has its own unique relationship to Alignment.

  • Humans can choose any alignment.
  • The Wildfolk are born with positive Karma and are restricted to a Good alignment.
  • Demons are straight up Evil!

When flagged as Good, you’re not allowed to perform any hostile action against other players flagged as Good or Neutral. This means no basic attacks or targeted spells against Good and Neutral players, neither looting them nor giving them a fatal blow. However, such actions can be performed against Evil aligned players, and will even earn you Karma points!

Neutral flagged players are allowed to perform hostile actions against Evil players, just like Good players can, but also against fellow Neutrals, without losing Karma.

As for the Evil alignment, there are a few reasons why you could be on this path in Fractured Online. Maybe you’re a Demon, or you “just” wanted to engage in criminal activities such as stealing or murdering and looting innocent players. No matter what got you there, when aligned as Evil, you’re in a high-risk situation, since anyone can hunt you down and you may even end up in jail.

You can change your karma and thus alignment by performing certain actions. PvE is a general way to adjust karma. Killing Good creatures triggers a loss in Karma Points, while slaying the Evil ones triggers a gain in Karma Points.

The gods you choose to worship also affect your karma score. Once a day players can make a Shrine Offering. These shrine offerings are an effective – albeit expensive – way to change your Karma towards that of the god you’re donating to.
