The Savage Frontier
Renown & Infamy
There are two numbers used to represent each Player Character’s relationship to a particular faction. The first (a positive number) is Renown. This is how much good reputation you have with an organization. This can be raised by doing favors for them, or working in their interests.
The second number is Infamy (a negative number). This is how much ill-reputation you have with a particular organization. The more infamy you have, the more this organization is going to work against you when the time arises, or if negative enough, put a price on your head.
It is true that you can do good an ill to an organization, so it is best to balance these numbers careful if you tread this line. They may simply not trust you due to your unpredictable nature.
