The Tyranny Rating is the game mechanic in Overlord II that represents the player's alignment.

Listed below are decisions that affect it. Destruction is by far easier than domination. Those who choose destruction will be better at destroying things, and domination will make you better at enslaving weak-minded individuals.

Note: The killing of 1000 gnomes and the killing 100 seals do count towards tyranny.

Gaining complete mastery of Domination or Destruction does not seem to have a notable effect, possibly makes the spells slightly stronger.
