In this episode we discuss some of our favorite menaces.

Alignment – Ep33

Lawful Good / Chaotic Evil

Many roleplaying games have a mechanic in place to gauge characters morality. In Dungeons and Dragons, that system is called alignment. It is one of the most misused and misunderstood aspects of roleplaying.

 

This episode we discuss the various alignment or guided morality in games and break down what we like and what we don’t.
