The way you conduct yourself among your peers in the world of Ashen Empires will ultimately be reflected by your alignment, or Reputation. This is different from Factions.
Your current alignment is reflected in the alignment bar on your interface as well as on the player character screen (press E). Double Click this bar to check your Reputation. Hover over other players with Tooltips ON to see the alignment of other players.
Every one is born into the world with a neutral alignment...some Races are more neutral than others. By showing respect towards other players and townspeople, attacking monsters near your level, and completing quests from Lotorian and Chaos Knights, you will slowly but surely join the ranks of the most respected.
Alternately, you can become a scourge to the world by attacking townspeople and other peaceful NPCs, such as Deer.
If you cause disruption in town or loot another player near the guards, you will be classified as a temporary criminal. If you enter the area in or around a town, guards will attempt to jail you. If the guards kill you, you will be sent to jail.
Jail is a place where guards send criminals. There is a holding area and rock yards, where you can crush rocks to reduce your sentence. You may be sentenced to hard time in Jail. You must serve that full sentence.
Once you have served your time you will released. Enter the portal to go to Lotor's Castle jail, then go through the next portal to take you outside of Lotor's Castle.
You may buy a Jail Pardon from the token store that allows you to leave jail without crushing rocks or serving time.
