    Anyone with 1000 alignment and the Saint title should have a way to see reds on the map in the same tile as the Saint, only in lawful lands.

    This would give people a reason to be blue, a reason to be a saint, and protection to noobies who live in the same area as a Saint.

    It would also give the Saint a tool to fight back against reds who invade the new player area.

    Currently Villains have the advantage because they can strike anywhere at anytime. No Saint or noob protector is going to stand guard 24/7 incase something happens. They need a tool to help with this.

    When I imagine a Saint I picture someone who helps and protects new players. Currently they just don't have any tools or abilities to protect anyone, other than aimlessly riding around hoping they are in the right spot at the right time.

    I like the idea, would have to do something for villains also. Ive been saying that the alignment system is pointless right now, every red as a blue alt for trading so.

    This is actually a pretty brilliant idea.

    First and foremost, it's very simple, so it seems like It would be pretty easy to implement from a developer point of view.

    And then more layers could be added, such "stealth gear" that would make reds undetectable for a certain period of time, and deployable "detectors" that Saints could deploy around an area to defeat these "stealth" items, but which the reds could then try to destroy.

    Then they could add more valuable resources and mob spawns in the blue areas, so that blues would be in the blue areas more, and reds would have a greater incentive to risk attacking.

    The possibilities are endless, really. This could even be the fulcrum of an entire faction system, where your faction is determined by your alignment.

    I think this would actually be cool. In my opinion its important you make being blue appealing to PvPers as much as being red is.

    Maybe allow villians to only see saints on the map.

    Yes it was suggested this idea could be implemented/discussed if it gained enough momentum.

    Glad people are starting to like this idea. It has been floating around for some time collecting dust.

    This is a pretty simple change that I would classify as added content to the game. Content changes usually take a lot of work. Hopefully this gets added sooner than later.

    really good idea. i also think reds should have some mechanism to find other reds. there should be incentive for daily red vs red pvp rather than just reds jumping blues at spawns for ez loot(not entirely accurate, but you get what i mean)

    Like the idea.
    Nothing for the reds though. They already have the element of surprise most of the time anyway.

    I really love this .. most of the difficulty was always trying to figure out where to intercept the Reds after they had killed a player .. I would usually try and b line to the chaos bank .. but sometimes they didn't go there.

    Yeah, give the Saints the tools they need to do their job and protect the lawful lands. Come on Kilrain, get some comment action on this thread. Look at all this momentum and positivity this idea is getting.

    Let the gods bless the saints with the ability to detect evil on this next patch.

    An on screen message would be nice, "You feel the presence of evil!". Message displays if a red enters the same LAWFUL tile you are in.
