As seen in the Heroes of Horror book I will be replacing alignment with “taint” or blight. Basically what this means for you is that if you consider yourself a “good” or “neutral” character you can acquire taint points.

You get these points by doing one of the three things below.

  • Perform acts of evil. (Murder, torture, rape, stealing from those in need, etc.)
  • Enter a heavily tainted place.
  • Witness an act so terrible that it taints you as well.

If you stack enough of these taint points you will start to see an effect on both your mind and body. Deformities will begin to happen, and most of them are not for your benefit.
