Yes. Marister had a slight alignment shift due to a story plot line, I thought maybe too much but he was still in his alignment range for his rp so did not say anything. In my opinion he has done things to get things back to more of a balance but it has not. (Yes I am aware alignment is technically an ooc thing) To get him back to where he was, is it the player's responsibility to contact the dm to arrange a plot to be restored or is it the dm who changed the alignment's responsibility.
Do not misconstrue this, I am not attacking the DM who did this I just wanted to understand how things in regards to alignment work here as each pw does things differently.
LOL, this reminds me of one of my fist alignment shift.
Group raided the old goblin fortress and on top of the hill they find a doberman puppy among the ruins of the battle. Everybody goes Ooooo and Ahhhh ... poor puppy, let's feed and cuddle it ... poor puppy is sooo afraid. And Tarithel goes "Yeah, me I'm afraid, too. Can we please go, before more goblins appear? Take the dog along and pet him in Valkur's." But noooooo. And then, when they make their way out, eventually, worg riders respawn right underneath them and guess who they kill.
And when they raise Tarithel with her very own scroll, she keeps giving them an earful all the way to Valkur's Roar bitching about and pointing out how much less compassion they were showing to the beggars they were passing by in the slums along the way than that dog. And guess what, that got her an evil point. Man, she was bitching about even more for a while after that
Errr .. and the moral of the story ...
I think, (because of exactly the pointed-out difficulties with alignment changes) alignment changes _overall_ are very rare, DMs rather reluctant. In the vast majority of cases, I believe, people bring it to the DMs attention that they _want_ to work towards an alignment change, and then the DM (or maybe more?!?) can pay attention, watch the RP, and trickle in alignment changes according to that. A staff member may want to chime in here, though, because my obervation may not be representative.
