I just finished closing the Oblivion gate in Kvatch and it said something to the effect that I'm a thieving scum - it wouldn't grant me any blessings. If you have stolen anything lately, do the chapels not bless you?

Check your infamy rating. To quote the Altar of the Nine article, "In order to activate the altar to receive its blessing, a follower needs a current bounty of 0, and greater fame than infamy. When the altar is activated, all attributes are restored and diseases cured." \*\ Hellhound43 15:59, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

Why when I go to any chapel in the game i am not allowed to get a blessing? It comes back with a smart ass saying saying that im a sinner or i need to repent my sins. How do i do that and why is it doing this?

If you mean messages like "Break not the laws of man nor beast!" Or "Tempt not the wrath of Julianos!" it means that your current infamy is higher than your current fame. Complete some quests that would raise your fame, and you should be able to receive the blessings. Schiffy (talk) 18:12, August 20, 2012 (UTC)
