This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

My next character is going to be evil...

We heartily approve of LE characters in play.  They help keep the "good" characters honest.  "Good" characters usually look out for number one.  If they have someone who actively takes that roll, rather than just falling into it, it gives them some incentive to actually act like a hero.

Quote from: Xavier Lang
One of the  Lawful Evil characters I liked was Audi Ibn Jhad from "Rose of the Prophet".  He fought back to back against members of his own church because he had sworn an oath to protect the person his church was going to kill.


I will second the example of a LE character.  Too many people play evil characters as lawful stupid or evil stupid.  Evil does not have to be a rampage and fuck everybody over.
  1. A robot may not harm a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
   2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
   3. A robot must protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
