The following is the list of all joinable faction quests:

Reaction matrix[edit | edit source]

Reactions are used as part of the calculation to determine the initial Disposition of NPCs to the player character. Note that the table is not symmetric: how Faction A reacts to Faction B is not necessarily the same as the reverse. To read the table, the value is how the faction listed in the row reacts to the faction in the column. E.g., the Royal Guard (from Tribunal) has a -1 reaction to Ashlanders, but Ashlanders have 0 reaction to members of the Royal Guard.[1]
