With regards to Law and Chaos, you are Chaotic

With regards to Good and Evil, you are Neutral




Chaotic Neutral people live for the moment. They thrive on randomness and chance. Chance is what gives life meaning, because life is only worth living if there's a chance of losing it. Chaotic Neutral is an alignment of dogged individualists, and no two are quite alike. They are very cynical of law and order, believing that everyone should have the freedom to be whatever they wish, regardless of whether they choose to do good or evil. In fact concepts like "good" or "evil" are basically irrelevant to Chaotic Neutrals. This alignment does not care about morality or justice. Personal freedom is the only thing worth fighting for -- all other causes are ultimately false. They oppose tradition, religion, political affiliation, or anything else that might limit or restrict their behavior. In this alignment, there are no groups, only individuals. They are anarchists merely for the sake of anarchy itself, like the proverbial "rebel without a cause." This is the alignment most prone to suicide and self-destruction ... when living becomes too painful to endure, to die is a blessed relief. In the words of Edgar Allan Poe, they are the ones "to whom life and death are equally jests ..."


Chaotic Neutral is the most mercurial and unpredictable of the alignments. Like the wind, it can change direction at a moment's notice depending on its current mood. Many Chaotic Neutrals have a difficult time caring about anyone or anything for very long. They change sides as easily as they change clothes, and relying on them is dangerous because a Chaotic Neutral can turn on you at a moment's notice ... although to be fair, they're all different, so some are more trustworthy than others. They don't place a high value on life, and might gamble with their own lives just for a thrill. A troubled teen on a death trip is a good example of Chaotic Neutral. So is a hopeless junkie, a compulsive gambler, a burglar that shoots first and thinks later, or anyone else that ignores long-term consequences for immediate gratification. They can be anything from empty-headed thrillseekers to brilliant existential philosophers -- the only thing they all have in common is their contempt for The System and for society in general. Their often overwhelming apathy tends to be their only real comfort. For Chaotic Neutral, "the future's uncertain and the end is always near ..."

Your Destination in the Afterlife : LIMBO

According to Gygax, your soul is going to Limbo. Traditionally, Limbo is a no-man's-land where souls go when they're not good enough to get into Heaven, but not bad enough to go to Hell. It's a little like Purgatory, except the souls here aren't being purged or cleansed, they're just sort of floating around. In many cultures, Limbo was the destination of suicides, heretics, and other undesirables. In Catholicism, Limbo used to be where they sent unbaptized babies that died in infancy, although the Roman Catholic Church later disavowed the existence of Limbo.

In the AD&D universe, the plane of Limbo has five levels and is located between Gladsheim and Pandemonium. Gygax also calls it "Entropy" and suggests that it's just a big nothing, so I'm a little confused as to why it would have five levels. If it's just a big nothing, wouldn't it be just one level? Or more precisely, no levels? Hey, let's ask Gygax what the deal was with that. Anyone got a Ouija board?
