|*NOTE.  ALL FEY ARE, BY DEFAULT, MOTHER OF ALL.  ALL FACTION-BASED CLERICS|

|ATTITUDES:                                                                |

|The different factions get along with each other to varying degrees. Some |
|are quite amiable, some have instant and violent hatreds.  The degree of  |
|attitude can affect the effectiveness of certain skills.  For example,    |
|a bless from Everen might receive a 25% bonus when used on a follower of  |
|Everen, but a -50% penalty when used on a follower of Karaveth.  Further- |
|more, attitude determines the effectiveness of player parties and the     |
|experience they gain; see 'help parties' for more information.            |

|HOLYWAR:                                                                  |
|The command 'holywar' is used to keep track of the jihad and its various  |
|scores. Type 'holywar' for further instructions.                          |
|                                                                          |
|JIHAD WAR TYPE:                                                           |
|A team war has a chance to become a Jihad-based War if the war daemon     |
|determines that there is enough diversity to ensure a reasonably balanced |
|war between enough teams.  This can mean, however, that one team has 3    |
|heros and 6 teams have one hero; good truces and gangs are the            |
|responsibility of the players, not the war daemon!                        |
|                                                                          |
|JIHAD COMMUNICATION:                                                      |
|The channel daemon holds channels for the 6 factions.  Atheists get no    |
|channel--sorry, unbelievers!                                              |
|                                                                          |
|The channel daemon should automagically pipe your messages to the correct |
|faction line by typing 'jihad message_here', like with every other        |
|channel.                                                                  |
|                                                                          |
|TEMPLES AND DEATH:                                                        |
|Each faction has its own center of power, the great Cathedrals of their   |
|faiths.  Each has its own unique guardian.  Members of the faction can go |
|to their temple when they die by typing 'temple' and then 'pray' for      |
|resurrection.  Each temple also can offer a special bonus unique to each  |
|temple once per reboot.  Directions to each temple can be found at        |
|'help temples'.                                                           |
|                                                                          |
|RESURRECTION                                                              |
|Each faction has a subclass of cleric to aid them in their holy cause.    |
|Not only can these chosen warriors fight, they can also call their allies |
|back from death's embrace.  The penalties for being given life this way   |
|rather than from the gods are less severe; however, they vary according   |
|to the relationships between factions.                                    |
