This campaign uses a system called Prestige to measure how the PCs are seen by major organizations in Lanjyr. For each organization they encounter, the party is assigned a number between 0 and 6, with higher numbers representing greater fame or notoriety towards that group’s members. Their starting score is 1 for each group.

Note that higher Prestige isn’t always a good thing – organizations that have you pegged as an enemy will expend more of an effort to oppose you if you earn a higher Prestige with them. See New Rules for more of an explanation on how Prestige is used in-game.

Prestige Score and Description

Prestige 0. Viewed with disdain, as buffoons or pariahs. The group will not take the party seriously, which could potentially be useful when tricking enemies.
Prestige 1. The party is relatively unknown to the group.
Prestige 2. The party has done a few noteworthy things, but most in the group don’t know them or assume they won’t do anything else interesting.
Prestige 3. The party has distinguished itself, and most members of the group know about their actions and talents.
Prestige 4. The group pays close attention to the party, either viewing them as a powerful ally or a dangerous enemy.
Prestige 5. The party is one of the top priorities of the group. A lot of resources are devoted to either helping them out or taking them down.
Prestige 6. The party has the ear of the leader of the group (or actually is in charge), or they’re viewed as the face of the enemy.
