House Redoran is not particularly well-disposed toward the Empire, but don't let that get in your way. These are the warriors and noble knights of the Great Houses. You may read about House Redoran in "The True Noble's Code". There are 44 copies just laying around, most Booksellers will have a copy or two in their inventories and I snagged one just so you wouldn't have to do the legwork.
Members of factions receive different types of welcomes from members of other factions, depending on how they get along. The formula is (Faction Reaction * 5)*(0.5 +(Faction Rank *0.5)). In plain terms, this means that as you attain higher ranks in your faction, people with negative modifiers will like you less and people with positive modifiers will like you more. This does not mean that everyone will start attacking you on sight, nor does it mean that they are going to fall all over themselves to be helpful. It does, however, modify their initial disposition toward you. This initial disposition will be further modified by your Personality, your overall reputation, your Criminal Status, whether or not you are Diseased, what kinds of favors you have done for the faction you're dealing with, etc. The other person may wind up liking you a lot or not liking you at all, but your faction and rank can impose a serious modifier.

There isn't room for it on the table, but if you have declared yourself the Nerevarine, the Redoran reaction modifier is -4, but since there is only one rank, this seems to simply impose a flat -21 reaction modifier.
Advancement within House Redoran will depend upon your skill level in three of the following skills:

Of course, these promotions don't come just based on your skills. You must perform quests to gain reputation and rank within the House. You will typically receive 5 points of faction reputation for each successfully completed quest. Just ask about "duties" to anyone who has it in their conversation threads. The House Redoran quest givers are, in no particular order:
Typically, each rank requires two or three successfully completed quests in addition to the minimum stat and skills requirements. The exception to this is that to advance beyond rank 7, you must build a stronghold. To advance beyond rank 8 you must improve your stronghold. You can start construction after reaching rank 5.
