Why is the quote function all screwed up in the add-post thing?
I mean, Osvir did propose something about global "good/evil" reputation, but all of that flies in the face of Project Eternity's direction because we should all know there's no concept of alignment.
High Reputation (Good) = Faction B dislike, Faction A like, Faction C skeptic
High Reputation (Evil) = Faction A dislike, Faction B like, Faction C skeptic
High Reputation (Neutral) = Faction A+B skeptic, Faction C likes
Alignment/Reputation/Morality/Faction-Based w/e it's the same thing just different names. Mechanically might function in various ways but it's there to fulfill the same thing. Just like High Chaos and Low Chaos does the same thing in Dishonored, some sort of "Feedback" on your characters personality.
What I was proposing was a "Global Reputation" so you can get a "Temperature" on where you're at in the World, instead of having some sort of 10-15 Faction List that you have to go through to see who likes you and who doesn't. Didn't get far in Fallout: NV but that's one of the initial feelings I got about it when I began to interact with Reputation.
I like where Jobby is going, Male could have some easy way through some instances and Female could likewise have an easy way through some instances. I wouldn't mind flirt my opponent as a Female, just to take them down non-lethaly so that the rest of gang can enter. Seduction, and that's not perversion or anything but an actual skill and if proficient enough; a very effective method on swaying men. 1+1+1 (Male+Female+Seduction)+1(Dialogue Options)
Paladin says nothing about "Male/Female", but Priest does, I wrote the thread from memory and what I recalled and I'm looking into both of those links and thinking "Yep, that can be fleshed out a lot and we can be innovative with it still". Even if it is the finished product (as in 100%, you can always come up with new things). I am not suggesting that the Paladin should be "My" Paladin but I am looking at the "Assets" and seeing what they got and puzzling that together with another asset, 1+1 (Paladin+Priest).
Likewise, Paladin doesn't say that Priests and Paladin do not have any relations, actually, Paladin+Priest does have one relationship (taken out of context! Just saying, read all of it @Paladin-link above):
Paladins are extremely devoted, often fanatical, soldiers who have pledged themselves to a chosen cause, combining the zeal of a priest with the ascetic discipline of a monk.
The bold implies that Paladin and Priest are related, and the Monk too, even if it is more "figure of speech" to explain the Paladin, it explains the Paladin by mentioning the Priest and the Monk. You don't say that the Fighter is a Ranger or draw inspiration from the Ranger, do you? It'd actually be less work for Obsidian if they just had one main "Holy Order" and threw Paladin, Priest and Monk into it (not advocating for it! Just stating the obvious). 1+1+1+1 (Paladin+Priest+Monk+Religion).
@Wanting only title change: No, I am actually suggesting that Barbarian could have an Amazon skillset as well, let's look at Diablo 2. Barbarian and Amazon are quite different in their builds and skills. If Barbarian could have some Amazon traits, I'd be happy cus I think it would be cool 1+1 (Barbarian+Amazon Skillset).
If only for the pleasure of shooting ideas down I vote Osvir continues his threads
Plenty of times they have served as inspiration for my own.
Same ^ though I would like to say that about everyone, everyone is an inspiration Wizard
