I don't like Circle's alignment changing algorithm - I think it's too obfuscated and stupid, and I wrote it about 3 years ago when I didn't know any better. What do you think of this: When you kill a moster of alignment N, you move 15% of the way from your current alignment to an alignment of -N. I like it because it's simple and has a tendency for people to stay more or less close to the center - i.e., it's difficult to get a _really_ nasty alignment of like -900 or -1000. Also, I want to change 'score' to give you a textual rather than numeric indication of your alignment, i.e.: -1000 to -850 You are supremely evil. -850 to -650 You are very evil. -650 to -550 You are evil. -550 to -350 You are evil, with occasional good tendencies. -350 to -150 You are neutral, with occasional evil tendencies. +150 to -150 You are neutral. +150 to +350 You are neutral, with occasional good tendencies. +350 to +550 You are good, with occasional evil tendencies. +550 to +650 You are good. +650 to +850 You are very good. +850 to +1000 You are supremely good. Whaddya think, sirs?
