    So I got this problem. I've run through the game a few times now the past few years but I havent been able to be evil yet! I mean.. 80% of the quests gives good alignment.. What am I suppose to do? I enjoy leveling fast so I prefer to do as many quests as possible. I usually reach level 50 by the time I'm at Qintarra for the first time. The whole "Sold you're soul" background wont do either because I prefer to be a tech.. Any tips?

    There's one peculiarity, that some people may not know. Once you're more evil than the monsters you kill, each kill will be making you even more evil.

    Okay, but what should I do in the beginning? Like agree to rob the shrouded hills bank and not give the guy his share? :p

    And I suppose that's why there's a sense alignment spell eh? :p Any tech items that does the same?

    EDIT: Also, about the followers.. Do they complain when you do a good act? Because that would suck.

    Kill innocent people, do quests that require robbing, destroying things. Insult people. Do quests to help people then tell them you are keeping the item. There is enough to level-up evil if you look.

    You can give the guy in Shrouded hills his half and get the evil alignment.

    I can't believe you're having problems with becoming evil. Go kill a town. Shrouded Hills, for example.

    Well, there's evil in the sense that you steal from people and rip off innocent old ladies by giving them incorrect change. There's also evil in the sense that you're a mass murderer who steals living organs and rips out the throats of innocent old ladies.

    I think he's looking for more of the first one, and thus, town killin' isn't really what he's looking for.

    ye I don't like to kill an entire town. And if I kill an old lady it usually sets the entire town against you. Atleast, that's the way it is for me. I want to do all the quests aswell, not only the evil ones.


    Also about the "do a quest and keep the item" Do I get any experience for the quest then?

    In most cases, I think no. And, if you're interested in being just marginally evil, the Underground is what you need.

    I allways tend to get +100 alignment, since I prefer to do all the quests with XP. I do all the quests, including the theives underground. I just wanna be evil once and try out the followers.

    If you're the persuasion master, then they join you regardless of your alignment.

    You give him his share, then kill him and then kill any guards who saw you kill him and then loot all their corpses and be even better off financially than you would have been just taking all the money.

    Thats simply how its done.

    And gaining good allignment can have evil followers drop comments about you not being the sort of person they want to hang out with.

    Be nice, convince Swyft you will take her to Tarant and do your best to protect her. After a little travel, diverge from the course a little bit, claiming you're "A tad lost." Have your followers wait a little ways away so they don't feel guilty/nauseous. And... well, I'm sure you can imagine what needs to be done from there...

    If for some reason, you CAN'T do evil things, try to play a Half-Orc.

    EVERYONE will act like a bunch of biggoted bastards. This will only make it sweeter to kill them.
