    Does anyone know what are the activities that can be done to raise the 3 virtues, love, truth and courage. Likewise, any activities that help reduce the virtue scores. Some folks might want their shroud black.

    Would like to write an in game book for players to refer to. Any links would be helpful.

    Love

    Truth

    (-)
    Lie about your name to NPC's

    Thanks in advance.

    Nick.

    I know how to reduce:
    • Stealing items in NPC towns.
    • Killing watchers
    • Lie about your name to NPC's
    • Do not help beggers with coins.

    Most optional and repeatable quests can raise or lower depending on your actions

    I got the feeling even just talking to any NPC and learning their name helps. The Oracle always mentioned it to me when I did so.

    • Tell your correct name = My name is .......
    • Ask NPC their name
    • Say Help
    • Ask NPC about rumors
    • Ask NPC about health

    Move to another NPC & repeat. Aerie, Ardoris Owls Head have lots of NPC's to talk to.

    You can use the up arrow, to scroll through these phrases on each new NPC, so you only have to ask each phrase once.

    It takes a while, but I got my Truth from -5 to +5 intelligence on my Shroud.

    You can raise courage by killing Satyrs in areas where there are Fauns; the Oracle will commend you for helping slaves. Amusingly, the Oracle doesn't bother to mention it if you killed the fauns too... (I suppose it's possible that killing the Fauns lowers courage, but the Oracle only brings up one response. I'll have to try murdering Fauns only and leaving the Satyrs alone some time to see if the Oracle gives me any guff.)

    Killing Cabalists (annoyingly) raises your courage.

    Also annoying.

    Yes, killing fauns lowers courage, just as killing satyrs raises it. (In areas where both are found together)

    Even just talking to any NPC and learning their name helps. The Oracle always mentioned it when conversing with her.

    Tell your correct name = My name is .......
    Ask NPC their name
    Say Help
    Ask NPC about Rumours
    Ask NPC about Health

    Move to another NPC & repeat. Aerie, Ardoris Owls Head have lots of NPCs to talk to.
    You can use the up arrow, to scroll through these phrases on each new NPC, so you only have to ask each phrase once.

    Of note, some NPC's do not remember your name. When you say "My name is ....." they only respond with their name (the "name" keyword only refers to them). They do not acknowledge your name.

    Thanks to those who have replied so far. :) Do let me know if there is any more to add.

    Clicking on "Help" I *believe* raises your Love score, as the Oracle will mention "You have started to concern yourself with the people around you" or some some such message from her. I just noticed that when I started to ALWAYS click on Help with NPC's.

    "Rumors" I don't know what that effects, as well as "Health".

    Of note, some NPC's do not remember your name. When you say "My name is ....." they only respond with their name (the "name" keyword only refers to them). They do not acknowledge your name.
