Honor acts like karma in Calradia; virtuous deeds increase your honor whilst unethical deeds decrease it, resulting in correspondingly positive or negative consequences.

Your character's honor starts at 0, and can range from -99 to +99 (except in Warband where the range is greater).

Honor affects your interactions with other lords and causes certain events. A high honor can increase the likelihood of a mercenary accepting an offer, or of you being elected as marshall. In Warband some lords will like you for having positive or negative honor; every 3 points in honor will increase or reduce your relation score by 1 (although the latter has small effect due to negative relationship repairing over time). Low honor can result in a bounty being placed on your head or a war being declared on your faction.

Unlike Controversy, honor will not change due to the passing of time.
