Nifty page! Can you explain the terminology here? --SacValleyDweller (talk) 15:04, 31 October 2008 (EDT)

  • I got it from some picture which had "lawful good", "lawful neutral", "lawful evil" - which are alignments that follow the law but their own morality; then "neutral good", "true neutral" and "neutral evil", which is generally being neutral but leaning to a certain side; and finally "chaotic good", "chaotic neutral" and "chaotic evil", which is where somebody causes a load of chaos while achieving their aims. Gregory House was cited as an example of "chaotic good", for instance. I might change the page to be more simpler though. --DocM 15:36, 31 October 2008 (EDT)
    • That picture you refer to is about D&D Alignments. I think Isaac should be Chaotic Good; he was a user for a good time, haha. GabrielPetrelli 15:38, 31 October 2008 (EDT)
      • Hey, this page is available for everybody to edit, not just me (unlike most of my other pages). --DocM 15:41, 31 October 2008 (EDT)
  • I use to play D&D all the time back in the day and the rules might have change since then. I'm just recalling there use to be some penalties whenever someone changed their alignment. It would usually make you weaker in some way until you gradually start to build your character back up again. --  PinkKeith (talk) 15:57, 31 October 2008 (EDT)
    • You are right, there used to be penalties like that. version 3.5 didn't have set rules like that, but had classes barred to certain alignments. In 4th edition, alignments are simplified, with
  1. Neutral Good and Chaotic Good merged into Good,
  2. Lawful Neutral, Neutral and Chaotic Neutral merged into Unaligned
  3. Lawful Evil and Neutral Evil merged into Evil.
