Anything that drives more players to the OSR, the better.

It is almost guaranteed. The only people who truly believe in moral relativism are the chaotic evil ones.

I feel like this is making a mountain out of a molehill. I think alignment as a mechanic is more trouble than it’s worth. Just look at the countless arguments over alignment that have occurred within the community over the last 40 years.

If you want to have a Moorcockian cosmic conflict between order and chaos, that’s fine and dandy. Don’t fuck it up by shoehorning another axis of good and evil into it.

I've never been a fan of alignment, as far as the players are concerned.
I do like alignment as a general meta note of NPC and monster behavior though.

Dungeons and Dragons nowadays is a joke.
Wizards of the Coast is a joke.

That's why I'm putting everything I got in a new (sword and sorcery) game.
