A typical creature in the worlds of DUNGEONS &
DRAGONS has an alignment, which broadly
describes its moral and personal attitudes.
Alignment is a combination of two factors: one
identifies morality (good, evil, or neutral), and the
other describes attitudes toward society and order
(lawful, chaotic, or neutral). Thus, nine distinct
alignments define all the possible combinations.
Each alignment description depicts a typical
character of that alignment. Individuals vary from
this norm, and a given character might act more or
less in accord with his or her alignment from day
to day. You should use these descriptions as
guidelines, not as scripts.
