First off, i tried looking on the forums and i'm not seeing any way to create an account to ask on the forums, so i'll start off asking here, until i find a way to create an account.
Anyway, the question I have is several fold but I don't see a clear answer on how things work so maybe someone actually in the game will be able to tell me better how this is implemented.
Here is the situation, I plan on buying this game (yes i'm aware theres a sub fee) in Feb when the price drops to $50 (About where most games prices are) and when I do i plan to make a Dwarven wizard (or whatever that will allow me to be a necromancer, i'll figure this out when the time comes) and I do want to join a settlement. They state that settlements are based on whichever alignment the leader is and you can go one step (in a 9 point grid alignment scale) away from the leader and can still join.
My problem is they also state that reputation will affect which settlements (the leader can put a min rep requirement) you can enter and do things in.
If i also understand this correctly higher rep settlements get access to better stuff, so they are unlikely to want people who have low rep in their settlements as this affects their rep level as well, lower rep is like having lower stars in fable 2, you lose access to the really good stuff and are forced (the further you go) to worse things (in fable 2 you couldn't get say crisp celery, and all you could get was wilted celery or rancid meat) however unlike fable 2 where you could buy the best stuff and then just trash the town (like any real evil person would do) and you could still have the really powerful stuff, and the best skills (to do said evil deeds) here it sounds like if you want to be really viable, you need high rep and stay high rep, but evil people wouldn't really hang out in high rep (ala get along towns) they hang out in the places of scum and villiany (per GW quote), but to RP that evil character, i'd be forced to gimp my future endevors cause what evil person wouldn't be caught in a high rep town unless they were trying to take it down a notch (which would likely get you kicked out).
Am I wrong in this understanding and you can have a really evil looking settlement (assuming the settlements look different based on alignment of the settlement) but have high rep? I'm just really confused how this all works. Cause right now it sounds like if you want to really play evil, you go to low rep towns which equals to basically gimping yourself.
Any help would be appreciated on how this works, if you have video clips that explain this hat would work even better.
Thanks in advance
