Remove Alignment Hops from Blackguard.

Post by Red Ropes » Wed Aug 21, 2019 8:16 pm

Blackguards while they may champion a God are not distinctly part of their clergies.

A Blackguard is akin to being a warlock and their pacts with profane powers is based solely on that. They have to, in lore, have Non-hostile contact with an outsider.

This means you should be able to be a CE degenerate who might worship Helm - and while Helm doesn't approve it isn't Helm who is necessarily giving you your powers.

Also: please make it so Blackguards can summon all three fiend streams. It's kind of dumb you're forced to either Yugos and Devs or Devs and Yugos if you're LE or CE. It makes it more likely for people to just be NE to summon all three.

Just keep the chance that they will "rebel" there for alignment extremes on the end game summons if you don't prepare.

I'm not keen on allowing all three streams for all, but would be open to something different for NE Blackguards.

I'd rather keep them associated with deities, where possible.
