My D&D Alignment ~ #Blaugust Day 27

This is part of the Blaugust series!

I thought that StarShadow’s post about D&D alignment was interesting, so I also took the online quiz for myself, and not any of my characters. I haven’t played D&D seriously, though I used to dabble in it with my sister when we were much younger. I know I have some old D&D books hanging around somewhere, though. I’ve never considered what my own alignment would be.

So, after taking the test, I ended up with Neutral Good.

The site notes:

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.

–excerpted from the Player’s Handbook, Chapter 6

I’d say this fits me, and the majority of the hero-type characters I write, fairly well. I feel that though laws and ruler ship are there to provide order and structure, they are fail-able and corruptible human things. Doing good doesn’t always mean you follow the rules, but that you sense the most pressing needs of people and tend to them based on the situation and with compassion.

Or, in the words of the wise KluYa of FFIV:

Yes, I made an animated gif just for this post. XD

  1. thanks for the linkback 🙂 There’s a lot of us neutrals out there – though having said that I think it’s actually pretty difficult to properly fall into lawful or evil…

    I nearly used a lotr alignment pic until I saw that they’d chosen Gollum as being Chaotic Neutral (my alignment) and I thought…. Nope!
