On House Reputation
We use a numbered scale for house reputation, and points can be gained or lost via in character events. However, we want to stress that we do not intend for this to be a stat-based game: we will not be looking at threads for every single thing your character does, and we will modify this system if necessary.
Eyewitness testimony can only come from a character who has at least one post in a thread where something happened. Characters cannot give testimony for their own house. Please provide a link!
how does it work?
Reputation is measured on a scale of 0-10, with 10 considered being the highest level of honor. Realistically, of course, nobody's perfect, and court intrigue can be tricky. This is not intended to show which houses are the best or worst — it is all public opinion, which isn't always the truth.
Your house can gain or lose reputation through events, herald issues, and witness testimony. Random events will never significantly impact your house's reputation, and it is most affected by what YOU do in character. If you want your house to gain a better reputation, you can do lots of things, including hosting tournaments and other in character events. For example, if your character wants to host a party, they can issue an invitation in the Correspondence board.
what affects reputation?
Major Events. ± 3-5 points. Major events are rare, and severely impact reputation.
- Positive. gaining imperial office, banishing or disowning a house member who has severely dishonored the family
- Negative. high treason, ignoring direct orders from someone of significant rank, severely disrespecting imperials/royalty
Regular Events. ± 1-2 points. Points are doubled for the actions of house heads, because they are more publicly visible.
- Positive: being popular at court, skilled and benevolent ruling, holding a good festival or party with lots of attendees, becoming a goldshield/master scholar/lady in waiting/councillor
- Negative: breaking significant promises (like betrothals), associating with houses that have a reputation less than 5, shameful dismissal of high positions, disrespecting senators/councilors, unjust and unfair ruling, heavy blasphemy, continuous heavy drinking/gambling
Minor Events. ± .25-.75 points. Points are doubled for house heads and heirs.
- Positive: holding a good small party, tournament victories, gaining favor or flattering someone in a high position
- Negative: minor disrespect or losing favor of someone in a high position, being or having a bastard, reoccurring inappropriate behavior in public, never attending court
