What's your (Dungeons & Dragons style) Alignment?

[Oh no, not another online quiz thing! - everyone]

Yes, but having read through the last one I started, it reminded me of another well-known system, and this one might be interesting indeed. And it's something I've often wondered, looking at the various posters here on the TrekBBS, to see how they would fit on the moral and ethical alignment system as used in the Dungeons and Dragons role playing games. You know, whether your "morals" are Good, Neutral or Evil; and whether your "ethics" are Lawful, Neutral, or Chaotic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alignme...s_&_Dragons%29




As it happens, Wizards of the Coast, the publisher of several Dungeons and Dragons role playing games, have this online Alignment quiz which I've been looking at, which everyone can have a go with. OK, it's not the perfect 36-question quiz, but anyway...

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/dnd/20001222b

The quiz suggests answering the questions "in character" although it might be more interesting and fun to answer them as you would in real life. (Of course, this assumes some given fantasy elements like magic, orcs, dwarves, elves, enchanted swords, etc. actually appeared in real life, but you get my meaning I hope. )


Me, I got boring old L'Awful Good

Lawful Good
A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. She combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. She tells the truth, keeps her word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion.
--excerpted from the Player’s Handbook, Chapter 6
"She"?


Anyway, if anyone wants to try their hand at yet another online quiz, here's one to try. (Somehow I think we might get quite a lot of Lawful Good people here...)

Re: What's your (Dungeons & Dragons style) Alignment?

Neutral Good
A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. The common phrase for neutral good is "true good." Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias toward or against order.

still at least they got the sex right

Sounds about right, I think.

Chaotic good, but I also have some chaotic neutral tendencies as well.

Re: What's your (Dungeons & Dragons style) Alignment?

I thought I'd be neutral good. According to the quiz, I'm half right.

Neutral
A neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn’t feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most neutrality is a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil. After all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he’s not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. The common phrase for neutral is "true neutral." Neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion.
All I know is my gut says "maybe".

They mix up the pronouns in AD&D books these days. You guys can stop acting like its a radical new concept. Welcome to 1990.

I chose NG, and got the same on the quiz.

Neutral evil.

I think almost every question should have had a D) Kill Them All option.

Re: What's your (Dungeons & Dragons style) Alignment?

I was torn between Chaotic and Lawful Neutral. The quiz told me I was Chaotic, but in practice I am probably more Lawful.
