11.6 Divine Favor and Disfavor
If you particularly please or anger a god, He or She may choose to temporarily grant you favor or curse you with disfavor. There are three grades of favor or disfavor a god may bestow, each including all the benefits or drawbacks of lesser favors/disfavors. All effects will stack with additional favors you receive from a different god, barring some exceptions noted below. The command GODFEELINGS will show you if you are in the favor or disfavor of any gods. A brief explanation of what you might see if you have attracted the attention of a god: The Good BOON ---- * Boosts your skill knowledge by a third. * Increases your celerity by one point. * Adds text to your examined description indicating the gift. * GRACE will grant you +1 to celerity, with the appropriate city research (AB RESEARCH GRACE). FAVOR ----- * Includes the benefits of a boon. * Reduces 5% of all damage done to you. Stacking only adds 2% thereafter. * Increases experience gain by 5%. BLESSING -------- * Includes the benefits of a boon and favour. * Increases gold drops from denizens by 10%. * Adds one point to all stats. Does not stack with other blessings. The Bad HEX --- * Reduces your skill knowledge by a third. * Reduces your celerity by one point. * Adds text to your examined description indicating the malus. DISFAVOR -------- * Includes the negatives of a hex. * Increases 5% of all damage done to you. Stacking only adds 2% thereafter. * Decreases experience gain by 5%. * Prevents entry to your haven. CURSE ----- * Includes the negatives of a hex and disfavour. * Reduces gold drops from denizens by 10%. * Reduces all stats by one point. Does not stack with other curses. ZAP --- * An instant punishment where the God slays you, resulting in loss of experience. GODSMITE -------- * A harsher version of a zap, resulting in larger loss of experience and a longer respawn time. * The loss of experience and respawn time increases each time you are Godsmote. * Generally done if you keep trying to repeat behaviour that led to you getting zapped!
