Reputation represents the general perception of the party as a force for either good or evil, it affects interaction and outcomes with the people you meet, how your party members treat you, as well as shop prices, there're many ways to manipulate reputation in game.

Effects of reputationEdit

Companions' reactionEdit

Companions react to the party's reputation according to their alignments, making comments to indicate their mood, and may even leave the party. In BGTotSCBG:EE, if you manually remove them when they're "Serious" or if they leave after "Break", it means their permanent disappearance; in SoDBGII(SoA)BGII:EE(SoA), they'll temporarily depart to their usual waiting spots after "Break" until they find the party reputation suitable again to join; in ToBBGII:EE(ToB), they wont leave at all. There's but one exception, a young lass who'll stick to you to the end no matter the campaign or what you do.

Dream abilities (Baldur's Gate)Edit

In BG and BG:EE reputation also determines which special abilities Gorion's Ward can gain though dreams, more of which are unlocked by chapters starting chapter 2 and randomly happen when resting. Abilities from dreams are considered as Bhaalspawn abilities and are never lost so you may skip chapters without resting, but you do need to dream to get them by their unlock order. All the special abilities from dream will eventually be replaced by the one and only Slayer Form, and none of the Bhaalspawn abilities can be used in the Black Pits games.

Starting reputationEdit

Whenever you start a game either by generating a new character or by importing an existing one, your starting reputation will be adjusted by the alignment of the first character you created.
