what of a paladin who has... sworn an oath to a god they are as of yet unaware is not one who is of good and light, but one who wishes to bring ruin to the world? and this paladin, so fooled, does their genuine best to be lawful and to be good, bringing good to the world through their actions, unaware that their god is merely using them as a pawn to hurt the world at large? i've been thinking about this, and i'd like to know your thoughts as well.
AKA the plot of the Final Fantasy 13 series? Im sorry, it’s just a boring, edgy plot for me. Gods standing in for shitty parents and corrupt governments is just something of an edgy plot I’ve grown tired of it, the message being you shouldnt have faith in things because they’re secretly evil.
