	Could you perhaps give a small list of what you have changing
alignment?  I can see things like prayer, helping beggars, killing good
people, casting helpful spells on people, etc. but I'm not quite certain
of what else.

	You failed to address one of points, which was religions.
Alignment being relative to the particular religions, what's "good" to
religion X may not be "good" to religion Y.
	As for the "finess" and "flexibility" of the numbers, I have a
slight problem with it.  I don't think someone should be "chaotic good"
(just below 'neutral good' and above 'neutral') should remain chaotic good
after they kill a good person; using -1000 to 1000 means that player Y can
probably kill a few 'neutral good' people before he actually drops below

	D'oh, sorry.  I keep doing that every month or so...  my
apologies, let the flaming continue... :P
