• Hi, and Welcome to the Alignment quiz!  I'm of the opinion that a great many of the difficulties people have with the D&D alignment system are caused by their own hopeless idealism. (or occassionally cynicism)  This test is written based on what I consider a 'realist' perspective. Please note that it is entirely probable that my interpration of good-evil and law-chaos differs from the offical or commonly accepted versions of the alignment system.

     

    A none of the above/ not aplicable option is available, but please don't use it unless absolutely neccessary.

     

    I apologize in advance for some of the lengthier answers, but it seemed neccessary. Perhaps I can improve that in the sequel.

     

    Also, I have added an experimental third axis: Idealism-realism-cynicism.  Hopefully, after recieving constructive criticisim, I will eventually write an improved sequel: the sequel may even have images of some sort.  Idealism-realism-cynicism currently just modifies your viewpoint of what 'good' is. the third axis is used by the GM to define how the alignment system will work in the current campaign or game system, and to clarify discussion about whether or not a given action is 'evil', and what kind of evil it is.  All actual game MECHANICS would still use the 2-axis system.  EG: In an idealist LG campaign, a Cyncist LG player would be forced towards the neutral or  evil end of the spectrum, even though he THINKS and INTENDS his actions to be 'LG'.
