On D&D Alignments

So, there’s this meme-thing going around that looks at what a person’s Dungeons & Dragons alignment would be. How do I score?

Your Score: Neutral-Good

62% Good, 44% Chaotic

Plane of Existence: Elysium, “Blessed Fields“. Description: The plane of peace. Notable Inhabitants: Guardinals – noble immortal humanoids with bestial features.

And I’ll dump the rest behind a cut (because it’s sodding long)!

Examples of Neutral-Goods (Ethically Neutral, Morally Good)

  • Cloud Strife (FFVII)
  • Boogenhagen (FFVII)
  • Mother Theresa
  • Ghandi
  • Sidhartha Gautama (the Buddha)
  • Gandalf
  • Bilbo & Frodo Baggins
  • Samwise Gamgee
  • Indiana Jones
  • The Dalai Lama
  • Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Harry Potter
  • Hermione Granger
  • Albus Dumbledore

Often goes along with the laws and desires of the group as being the easiest course of action, but ethical considerations clearly have top priority. May pursue quite abstract goals. Often aloof and difficult to understand.

  • Will keep their word to others of good alignment
  • Would not attack an unarmed foe
  • Will not use poison
  • Will help those in need
  • May work with others
  • Indifferent to higher authority
  • Indifferent to organizations

Neutral Good “Pure Good”

A neutral good [person] will obey the law, or break it when he or she sees it will serve a greater good. He or she is not bound strongly to a social system or order. His or her need to help others and reduce their suffering may take precedence over all else. Neutral good [people] do good for goodness’ sake, not because they are directed to by law or by whim.

This alignment desires good without bias for or against order.

One thought on “On D&D Alignments

  1. Not surprisingly, I got nearly the same results: Neutral-Good, 84% Good, 44% Chaotic, and Elysium.

    And yes, N-G was the alignment I used in my D&D days, over 20 years ago. 🙂
