The Inquisition: Legacy is a deeply flawed game that deserves a shot, but it still is necessary to address the problems.
I was invited to this game some years ago by a friend, who does not play anymore due to these reasons.
The good, is that the game tries to at least give a semblance of a well balanced RP structure, and it does pretty well at it. If you want an RP experience without a high focus on combat, and the ability to feel accomplished without having to kneecap your character entirely.
The bad, is more varied. Leadership positions are available in-game, but you better not count on being treated entirely fairly. Most people who play the Grand Inquisitor role face constant policy cases for basic actions, and a vast majority of players attempt to entirely avoid RP with the church and sweep the blame on the easier target, the In- game Guild leadership. (There are even instances of blackballing info against the Leadership roles to force them to do as a single person says, whilst playing the victim.)
It has lead to an uncompetitive field of Player characters dreading any kind of leadership role and those that enjoy it have a tendency to only have a honeymoon reaction to it. And staff choices to affect the leadership, have made it so that aged players are more likely to play roles that are barred from leadership, leaving people with empty roles.
There is also a gigantic problem of people cycling through the same roles, and very thinly veiling their OOC intent to either Player Kill, or simply play the same 'Archmage Voldemort' that goes out of their way to try and convince you that it's great RP to have characters that you know are the Big Bad Warlock, and you know barely any RP will surround their actions.
The player-to-player RP is great, and there are some genuinely good people who make this game their home. But the reviews for this game are getting more negative, with time, and it's genuinely worth discussing why that is.
This review isn't written with sour intentions, but more out of worry for the long-term health of the playerbase.
