“ A wise man once told me, “family don’t end with blood,boy” but it doesn’t start there, either. Family cares about you, not what you can do for them. Family’s there through the good, bad … all of it. They got your back … even when it hurts. That’s family.“

So I’ve been thinking about D&D character alignments a lot lately, and there’s something interesting that people don’t think about. Usually when they think about their alignment, they think about what actions they take. That doesn’t dictate your alignment.
It’s your motivations. Your alignment is the how and why of what you do.
Good alignments: you do what you do for the good of society.
Neutral alignments: you do not care about society nor yourself, or equate yourself and loved one with the rest of society. as long as whatever happens does not negatively affect the people you care about, it is not your concern.
Evil alignments: you do what you do to meet your own goals, and they are selfish goals. you do not care if people get hurt along the way.
Lawful alignments: you do what you do by a code of conduct, whether it be the laws of the land, the laws of your god, or your own moral code
Neutral alignments: you do not care much for any strict code of conduct, but may follow one anyway, although not very rigidly.
Chaotic alignments: freedom is the most important thing to you. you do not care how you meet your goals, and you do not care what laws you may break.
