If you've read the basic Karma page, you'll see that karma affects your leader's title. Did you know that it also affects the way your leader's eyes appears in Explore, as well as what encounters they may come across?

Good (+400 or Higher)

Neutral (+399 to -399)

Evil (-400 or Lower)


As you can see, Good Karma eyes are wide and shiny, whereas Evil Karma eyes seem darker, and your leader's eyebrows are furrowed. This is a nifty feature that allows you to see how far your leader's karma has progressed without paying 50 SB to reveal your karma at the Karma Snake.

We mentioned a leader's karma affecting the encounters they come across. Let's dive in and see what karma-based encounters you can find in all biomes!

Hover over the icons in the upper right corner to see whether an encounter is available during daytime, nighttime, wet season, or dry season. If on mobile, you can tap the icons for the same effect.

Neutral  


These encounters show up in all biomes and rely on your leader being Neutral.
