Template:Stub Fame and Infamy are statistics on your character summary page, which are a measure of how well known your character is for performing heroic or dastardly deeds. Many quests, in particular the main story line, raise fame by a few points.

Renown is effective total value of your good/bad deeds seen by the gods, calculated as number of Fame points plus number of Infamy points.

Renown is checked when you want to activate Cult (Heavenly) Doomstones. Fame is needed to purchase the houses in Chorrol and in Skingrad.

Also at very high infamy eg. above 600 Infamy, marauders and bandits will stop fighting you and greet you like any other NPC in the game. This can be quite useful for quickly going through forts and ayleid ruins.

But there is the exception of Orc Marauders which will attack you if you have any fame. regardless of your infamy.
