Lawful Neutral or Lawful Evil

"In its majestic equality, the law forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets and steal loaves of bread."





With regards to Law and Chaos, you are Lawful

With regards to Good and Evil, you are Neutral or maybe Evil


Your scored a combination of TWO alignments, Lawful Neutral and Lawful Evil. You should go to the bottom of this page and click on both of these alignments for more details, because you are partially one and partially the other.


To give you a general idea, people of this alignment combination are primarily lawful and secondarily evil. They are loyal and dedicated followers of whatever system they serve, and they always play by the rules, but they are cold and merciless in pursuit of their ends. This is the alignment of hanging judges, military dictators, and stone cold mafia chiefs -- people who hold the letter of the law above the spirit of it, and who have little compassion for anyone that doesn't play by the rules. They may not all play by exactly the SAME rules, but they all follow rules of one kind or another.


Quick Scoring Guide

chaos scores of -20 to -29 : exceptionally lawful

chaos scores of -30 & down : inhuman



Fictional Examples Of This Alignment Combination

Captain Hook (from the original "Peter Pan") is a suitable example of this combination. Not the dumbed-down Disney version, where Hook was portrayed as a leering incompetent buffoon, and definitely not the version from the Robin Williams movie "HOOK," which was total bullshit (like almost everything else Robin Williams has ever done). No ...  I'm talking the original Captain Hook. Educated at Eton, Hook was a gentleman pirate, Blackbeard's boatswain and supposedly the only man that Long John Silver ever feared. Stylish, sophisticated, and deadly, Captain Hook was the penultimate Rake. To him, style and form were everything ... he even taunted Peter Pan for having "bad form" during their final (?) fight. Hook played by the rules and kept his word, but he was diabolically cunning. He represented a wholly adult villian, responsible yet corrupt, and obsessed with attaining wealth and power and respect (he wanted to become the King of Never Never Land). He was also driven by a need to "do justice" to Peter Pan, and punish him for cutting off Hook's hand and feeding it to the crocodile. In some ways, Hook was like an older authority figure pitted against a wayward and dangerous young rebel. Captain Hook was evil to a point, but his evil was not so much deliberately cruel as it was simply obeying "form." The world is hard and cruel, and to prosper a man must put away childish notions and play by the rules of the game. Which was the polar opposite of Peter Pan's carefree and mischievous philosophy of eternal childhood. Captain Hook was no less than an emissary of the Real World, which is to say a typical adult. And as Barrie reminds us, "all adults are pirates."   


Your Destination in the Afterlife : ACHERON

According to Gygax, your soul is going to Acheron. In Greek mythology, Acheron was an infernal river, or sometimes a lake. There is an actual river in Greece called the Epirus, which the ancient Greeks associated with the river Acheron because it flowed underground in several places. They believed that it literally flowed into Hades (the underworld), and that the River Styx sprang from it. Acheron meant "river of woe," although other accounts say it was a river of healing rather than punishment. It was like Purgatory -- a place of atonement and eventual renewal, rather than of eternal suffering.

In the AD&D universe, Acheron has four levels and lies between Nirvana and Hell. Gygax never actually calls Acheron a river. In later books, he suggests that it's more of a wasteland.
