TextSpaced: An infinite and shared text-based universe.

Ally

Karma, which can be viewed from the command window, is an indication of relations between your faction and others. It serves as nothing more as an indication and the faction founder can choose what to do with the information as they please. The only exception to this are NPC factions, which may declare war as soon as the karma reaches -100%, allowing them to attack.

You can forge alliances within TextSpaced by increasing your karma with other factions. This happens naturally by supporting them in battle, completing missions for them or general good relations. Providing your karma with another faction is positive the founder can solidify the alliance within the command window. Conversely, the founder can declare war on another faction at any point providing they are not already allied, allowing the two factions to attack each other.

The most common time karma will change is if captains from one faction break the systems rules set forth by another faction, such as mining being disallowed.
