Madness at Gardmore Abbey
A Note on Alignments
We play using 4th edition D&D rules, which uses five alignments for characters and gods (Lawful Good, Good, Unaligned, Evil, and Chaotic Evil), compared to the nine-grid of alignments in past editions (Lawful Good, Good, Chaotic Good, Lawful Neutral, Neutral, Chaotic Neutral, Lawful Evil, Evil, Chaotic Evil). I believe that Wizards of the Coast changed the alignment system for 4E because they believed that it was hard to understand. I however, believe I understand the nine-grid and appreciate it. I allow/use the nine-grid in my game because I believe if you understand it, then it can make sense how a character could be Chaotic Good or Lawful Evil for example.
For extremely thorough help in understanding the nine-grid of D&D alignments see this website (sorry, links to other sites don’t seem to work here): easydamus.com/alignment
