Sargon Would Understand Alignment

if he read Appendix N.

He’s playing 3.5, though, so it’s no wonder he’s got it wrong!

Chaotic Good Jesus is a great example to point to for why even people who love using two-axis alignment as some sort of Briggs Myers test still complain that it just doesn’t work as a mechanic.  Without a natural-order/Christendom vs a moral relativism/feywild dichotomy, notions of law and chaos aren’t going to make much mechanical sense and be used as an excuse for dudebros to play as asshats and claim that they’re playing to their alignment.

Interestingly, Sargon inadvertently makes a case for the three-point alignment about 15 minutes in.
