Ohh, and also, the ending is fucking epic!

I know this is a bit late, but I’m very puzzled by Troy’s decision to move Della’s alignment instead of Sir Will’s. Who was acting their alignment — given the alignment definitions from Paizo — and who wasn’t? (http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateCampaign/campaignSystems/alignment.html) Lawful Good “Core Concepts: Duty, fairness, honor, property, responsibility, right, truth, virtue, worthiness A lawful good character believes in honor. A code or faith that she has unshakable belief in likely guides her. She would rather die than betray that faith, and the most extreme followers of this alignment are willing (sometimes even happy) to become martyrs. A lawful good character… Read more »

I agree- it was an odd assessment. Granted, it was grisly, but Della has repeatedly used her abilities to protect and help others, using violence only against monsters/giants/etc, and shown a willingness to sacrifice herself for others. If anything, she has just been leaning edgy chaotic good. The fact she used an ability to capture abilities from a slain foe isn’t much different from the typical looting you see in this game. You can have a good necromancer/warlock/etc.- it’s basically just costumes and effects. Character motivation and acts should be determinative of alignment, especially in light of the fact that… Read more »

I totally agree! It makes no sense to move Della closer to Lawful for breaking a deal, and then close to evil for healing an ally. She was chaotic neutral and playing true to form. Further, Troy said he was moving her alignment “one step” and then no one batted an eye when he moved her two. Is Troy chaotic evil?

Yeah, it was a bit wierd, but that’s alignment for you. Never made much sense to me in the first place. And this is incidentally also why paladin is such a group-dependent class. If you got “normal people” in your group, the paladin will fall eventually unless a lot of stuff is handwaived. But apart from that it was an awesome episode. I like how Troy buffed that encounter through the roof. I liked planting the potion of restoration, and the outcome was even more fun. I really hope Troy changed the volatile vaporizer to 4th level (I know the… Read more »

Oh,Will should absolutely be Neutral Good at best. A fighter who’s lucky to be Neutral Good. After blaming her for his own weakness and addiction and not taking any responsibility for his own stupid, stupid actions, I personally (And I’ve been GMing since 1981) would have dropped him to Neutral Good.
But the moment he chose to go bitch bitchass selfish and dice off against Della, in my game, he would have hit straight Neutral.

Grow the fuck up, Willamette.
