Scourge of the Stormlands
Reputation determines how well liked you are among a given organization. Your permanent Reputation with an Organization (Tribe, Guild, Church, etc.) begins at 0, unless you are a member of the Organization, in which case it starts by 1. When you do things that please the group, you gain a relative number of temporary reputation points. Mechanically, the temporary point does nothing. When you gain a number of temporary rep = to 10 x the new level of reputation, your PERMANENT reputation with that group increases by 1. Note that someone with a high rep with a group isn’t necessarily a member, and that members don’t necessarily have high reputations. Reputation can open doors that you would not normally have access to, such as training, equipment or favors. Your reputation score also counts as a bonus to Diplomacy checks with other members of that Organization.
Reputation will be rewarded at the end of each quest, chapter, or downtime, but never until the thread is completed.
