Not sure why you are quoting me. I just gave my opinion based on post by lfgr. (Before reading that I didnt even know there was bugginess associated with it.) Cant the 'bad' manas be traded away? (I am asking as I dont know if the AI values (>=0) them nor do I know if that gets rid of the penalty.) Isnt there some connection between AC and alignment? Like event choice availability? Also the pro-AC religion is evil. My complaint here is the lack of consistency - on the one hand there is the connection between AC and alignment. But on the other hand there is no particular benefit/penalty for (generic) evil/good - if anything good has the advantage due to hell terrain limitation. Gameplay and fluff are somewhat at odds.
