help > jihadrace
When you tithe money or offer items to your god in your faction's temple, not only will you raise your standing within your faction but also contribute to a race with all other factions. The faction that has the highest 'score' gets extra experience for every kill. The jihad race is a good way to raise your jihad standing (which also comes with an experience bonus) while at the same time trying to capture the lead in the race. Only one faction gets the experience bonus at a time. So, if your faction has the bonus and another faction's score bypasses yours, then you no longer have the bonus. Head to your temple's tithe room to see what faction is leading and offer your own donations to your god. If your faction is winning the race it will be shown when you use the 'bonus' command.
