Alignment Quests

What is this for?
When you break an oath as an act of atonement
When you want to impress a religion to get access to oaths or join up
When you owe a religion for raising dead or other healing or divination
To earn credit for future medical bills and funeral expences
To impress a ruler or noble court

People who do quests for a church get documented and their names spread along the ecclesiastical pilgrim routes. 

Are You a Wicked Spell Caster?
In my world all practitioners of magic in civilisation are documented and using magic on other citizens of the area is witchcraft. A witch is an unauthorised illegal spellcaster who uses abilities on persons or property of the community. Its mostly a slur to get people killed by mobs of fanatics. Those orcs will call good adventurers clerics witches. Id say in many cases witches happen to be sorcerers bound by oath or blood to otherworldly beings but druids get caused lots also. Wizards have guilds and priests have churches to regulate spell casters who don't charge rates or swap spells with rival organisations.
