Faction Mechanics: Can setting an Unaligned SH not be suicide?

Post by Lychwood »

Unless you're a Nexus Champ, you're probably not spending all of your time trying to maintain MO between -20 and +20.

From what we understand of the lore, the neutral powers are pretty chill with that. There's not really any punishment for utilizing your free will--it's pretty much the whole gist of being Unaligned to begin with.

So why does this happen?
- Because your alignment does not completely embody your faction's ideals, the Elder Powers are displeased; you take 80 points of damage! This was enough to kill you! (2022-05-08 15:16:03).
Can we give unaligned factions a break on the one thing that's supposedly in their favor (i.e. not being held up to strict moral ideals and expected to follow dogma to merit access to their powers)?
I am the filthiest casual.

From a lore perspective, transcended characters shouldn't be punished for their MO.
Still punishable by death tho.
