Just a short note on alignment.
About a year ago my gaming group had the same discussion about the
restrictions or flexibilities of the alignment system. When things got
a bit heated between the DM and a couple of PCs a third PC made a very
important point: bringing concepts from a real-world situation (be they
historical facts or current philosophy) into a "role-playing" game is
always going to be problematic. The fact is, that the DM must decide
just how "real" or not he or she wants the game to be. If the DM
decides that in his or her world paladins must and will live by some
uniform code of ethics, then that's the way the game will be. To
develop one particular method or system of how specific characters must
act, is next to impossible. Each PC has to either learn to live with
the restrictions and flexibilities of each particular DM and game or not
participate. But that's one of the greatest strengths of role-playing
games, the ability to create whatever concept you want of a race,
society, world, or entire universe.
Well I'll get off my soap box now.
