41 KB Lawful Good Appreciation Thread. Anonymous 09/19/08(Fri)17:06 No.2617271  
I've seen a lot of "How to best force a paladin to fall?" comments and people telling stories about how their gaming group screwed over their Lawful Good character over perceived "moralfaggotry" or expected Lawful Stupid behavior, so let's make a thread commemorating what Lawful Good is supposed to be about. Inspiring hope. Bringing freedom to those enslaved. Bringing down evil without stooping to its level. Acting with integrity and honor without falling into the pitfall of Lawful Stupid.

Personal stories from the gaming table, fictional characters, real people... Anything goes, as long as they embody the best and brightest the human (or nonhuman) species has to offer.

Starting with: Atticus Finch from "To Kill A Mockingbird". What makes him Lawful Good? He is brutally honest, highly moral and a a tireless crusader for good causes (even when those causes are seemingly hopeless).

Just watch:

Not sure how 'Lawful Good' it is, but a couple of moments in a character's timeline....

We were in a competition to decide who would be the next king of the land we were currently living in. My character and another were both picked to participate.... against each other. The first competition was a battle royale.

The only catch was, it was henchmen based.

The other character was building a ninja/thieves guild (Yes, a little weeaboo, but fuck it, it was funny, witty and imaginative.) Whereas I had no one. So I set about hiring people we had befriended over the years.

That's when I decided I couldn't let people fight in my place, and with some handy spells and skill checks, disguised myself to fight with them.

I got caught and was disqualified, because I would not let anyone fight my battles for me, alone.

Fred McFeely Rogers. Originally studying to be a priest, he changed his mind when he got a glimpse of his first TV show, and had an inspirational thought- you could use TV not just to entertain, but to educate and help, on a wider scale than with any other medium.

So he dedicated his life to the cause of Public Television, and defending its position in American culture to all comers, up to and including the Nixon Administration.

Another moment, later in the campaign... was facing off with a group of Druids who chose death to even things out, rather than life. After wading through large groups of them, I came upon one particularly powerful one... the local leader or something like that. They had this big bad plan to kill an ancient, massive tree (Think 'tree city' style.)

"We're going to make the world realize that death is the only way to balance out nature, by one major sacrifice!"

It's clearly obvious that he could kick my ass in under a minute, but still, I had no choice. Summoning up a short, heroic speech about how I know death is one way, but I can't let him do it, I rush him.

Mother fucker uses Live Staff or whatever, suddenly, Treants, one big mean one, right in front of me.

What I would decide later was 'the power of conviction' coursed through me, and I managed to pretty much dice it in half in two-three hits (A bit of a powergamer, but it worked out well.)

Again, not so sure of the 'righteousness' and 'lawfulness' of it all, but just that I stood my ground against overwhelming odds, even charged at him, sounds a little like it to me.

Funnily enough, Alicia started off as a pretty shit paladin.

In the beginning she was your typical stuck up holier than thou bitch who was in it as much for self aggrandisement as much as her (still entirely sincere) sense of justice.

Then she retired after falling in love so that she could raise a family without having to run off and kill bandits and monsters every week, resulting in her pretty much ignoring the brigands gaining strength near the village she'd settled down in after leaving the church. Until said brigands killed her husband and son.

This caused her to go a bit psycho and she mercilessly slaughtered the lot of them, almost certainly falling if she was even still a paladin at all at that point (it's a bit vague since this is all background rather than stuff that happened ingame - she started at level 7) - she's admitted that some surrendered and she intimidated them into picking up their swords so she could kill them 'honourably'.

Luckily she didn't go completely off the deep end, and after concluding her blood-soaked orgy of revenge she went back to her church for spiritual guidance/a shoulder to cry on. After atoning and retaking her vows as a paladin, she emerged as a sternly dedicated guardian of justice, albeit still one with a very vengeance focused mindset.

It wasn't until she was reunited with her sister the convicted assassin that she really started to believe in concepts such as redemption and rehabilitation, and that was a viciously hard journey for her.

He's not the most famous or most powerful superhero in the Marvel universe, but I've always like Vance Astrovik, known as Marvel Boy, until he renamed himself Justice.

Young man, old-school values. Doesn't kill, tries to keep other people from killing and all that. The image is one of his finest moments, telling his teammates that he won't let them break him out, because he committed a crime, was sentenced and is going to serve that time. Because he believes in the system.

Mr. Rogers is the God of Peace (his whole life was touting non-anger), Knowledge (likewise but with education), and Creativity (Land of Make-Believe). His symbol is the Trolley, the carrier of information.

Clerics of Mr. Rogers wear hand-knit sweaters of various colors and black dress pants. One of their most closely held rituals is, whenever they enter the inner sanctum of one of the temples, they sit down for a moment and swap their street shoes for sanctified shoes ("sneakers"), which are stored in a closet just within every inner sanctum.

the problem far too often is that people expect LG characters to be able to solve all problems, and that failure to do so is "fall worthy" like "Save those 5 kids over there or those 50 children on the other side of the room, and you only have time to do one, oops you chose to let 5 kids die, you fall"
or sometimes they take the lawful half too far "You chopped down a tree to bash open the ogre's lair, and save the princess, but the tree was part of a forrest that is forbidden to be used for lumber, you fall"

Clerics should be cut off from Divine power EXACTLY as easily as Paladins. Well, not exactly, since they're already allowed to be an alignment step away from their god or something. But even if they were, you know, judged the same but allowed a few missteps due to that caveat... The ensuing BAAAAWWW and complete lack of any Clerics would make DMs rethink their harsh expectations for Paladins.

Or, the DM would be happy to see that Clerics are no longer a powergaming option in his campaign, and start being a dick to everybody.

I read this far before going "Fuck yeah, that spell is way too good."

But yeah, solid point otherwise. Clerics and Paladins should both have codes specific to either their deities or causes/alignments (if deity-less) and each be held just as strictly to it as the other.

Agreed. I run it as that if a cleric does enough to piss off his God, he loses his powers entirely. He has to atone or switch to a God now more suitable for him. Changing Gods is presented as easier generally - sure, worship the God of Murder for free or spend awhile on a hard, rewardless quest to atone.

It's a bit of asshole DMing but I've found it to help cut down on cleric bullshit.

I had a better thought, though.

Rogers was always pursuing the idea of using music to help deal with anger and stress, and I think we can all agree the Neighborhood's theme music sure did the trick.

So instead, Rogers' symbol is the musical note, and Musicians are part of his portfolio along with community leaders and diplomats.

Somewhat. Basically it started off as a low-powered/low-magic setting, set after a cataclysmic battle where the Gods became removed from the world. Now they're starting to come back along with all sorts of other wackiness.

The PCs are basically riding the crest of the wave as the setting becomes more high powered, but we're generally not challenged by mortals/humanoids - typically the ones close to our power level are remarkable in their own right.

Once upon a time, I played a Lawful Good rogue by the name of Nebbles The Halfling. Nebbles The Halfling's was a troubled lad in that he was really, really good at stealing, but he wasn't so great at stealing on the spot, because he felt the need to justify it to his conscience. This was decided because my rolls to pick pockets almost invariably failed and my Hide and Move Silently rolls were almost invariably successful.

Anyway, we had come across an evil politician in a large city, one that had decided that our attempts to help the city were going to hurt his corruption and whatnot. Various veiled threats were made by him, and Nebbles The Halfling always tried to find evidence that would incriminate the politician and get him put in jail, where he belonged. Long story short, it's finally decided that the politician was too good at covering his tracks to stop him through conventional means... and so, Nebbles The Halfling confronted him in a big, public place: the middle of the congessional-type area.

Nebbles> "Hi, Evil Politician Whose Name Escapes The Writer."
EPWNETW> "... Hello. What do you want, you pustular scab on my perfect city?"
Nebbles> "I've decided that you need to confess to your crimes."
EP> "That's... nice, I suppose. Get out, before I have you removed."
Nebbles> "Are you going to confess?"
EP> Losing his patience, grabbing the halfling. "Get OUT!"

At this point, Nebbles The Halfling suddenly had a dagger sticking out of his chest and a horrified look on his face. He gave a scream and started spraying blood all over the evil politician, gathering everyone's attention in the entire place. In actuality, Nebbles The Halfling had used a fake knife and an assortment of magical items to fake his own death in a highly public manner to get the politician imprisoned and the city guard to investigate his personal life, revealing all of the nasty little things he'd done throughout his career.

tl;dr version: My favorite rogue, ever.

I had one campaign where two Paladins (mine and an NPC) ended up fighting each other over a prophecy that foretold that a young child would become a great force of evil in the world. The other one had been convinced that in order to prevent this from coming to pass, he had to kill the child, whereas mine refused to allow the then-innocent to be killed and wanted to bring the child up to be good in defiance of the prophecy. I managed to avoid killing him because two of my party members had improved disarm, so in two rounds he'd been divested of all his weapons and the rogue had already made off with the kid using his ninja hax. It was pretty epic.

It's a very shitty test, though. She got a ton of points for her spellcasting and paladin abilities that I don't feel were appropriate (the instructions say don't tick them if such things are normal, but when Fly is a 3rd level spell and people who can even cast 1st level spells are a small minority, it qualifies as unusual).

At any rate, people who think their alignment dictates how their character acts are idiots. It's the other way round. Your character acts however they do, and you decide which alignment most accurately describes them based on that.

Here's my story.

I was a Paladin grouping with your typical SENSELESS KILLINAN group because I was assigned to keep them in check since they had broken from jails many times. After a while of adventuring I managed to tone them down. Anyway while looking for this artifact the wizard wanted we came across this city with an oppressive ruler.

After finding out what was going on the Baron was taking rations from the people enacting harsh curfews and drafted most of the population. After a short degree of convincing my party we went to overthrow the Baron. I personally lead the assault. After a good battle later we had the Baron defeated and our barbarian killed the Baron in the fight.

Later we found out that there was a huge orc army heading for the city and the Baron was trying to bolster the defenses to fight them off. Being completely responsible for the leadership vacuum and a man to right his mistakes I took charge of the city and Ordered a mass evacuation to an allied town/ fortress. My party abandoned me by this time because they "didn't care about them." The Evacuation was taking too long and the orc army was almost there. So in an act of defiance I stood outside the gates ready to hold off the ENTIRE orc army. Some of the people were inspired by my actions and came out the gates to help me.

The Battle ensued, most of the people fighting with me died. I stood there holding my sword in the ground staring towards the orc encampment, very badly wounded. We used a system where you remain conscious even if you go below 0 HP but if you hit -10 you die, and every turn you aren't healed you lose exponential hp ( like 1,2,4,8 etc..) I was near dead from wounds during the battle, but I finally passed that threshold after the battle. I Literally died standing. The Orcs did not attack again thinking I was still alive.

No, I'm saying D&D is a team game. You should think of the team when playing. Sure you could prepare all save or die spells, but then again why would you need a team if you did that? Whatever, play how you want to play, just don't be surprised when everyone thinks youre a douche.

No, I think he's saying it is entirely possible that whoever is playing the wizard is a team player and does not think it is a waste of a spell slot to buff one of his allies because he is not a powergaming faggot and perhaps recognises that it is still possible to have fun without having to try and make ultra-optimised builds that make the rest of the party redundant. I know it might be hard to understand, but extrapolating your own behaviour to everyone else is not actually an accurate way of figuring out how other people will act.

Takamachi Nanoha from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha is a great example of Lawful Good.

She works for an inter-dimensional police force, always attack to subdue opponents instead of killing them, and will save anyone that requires saving, even those that others consider non-human. She also have a tendency to take in orphaned children and give them loving homes.

A rare case of a lawful good magical girl who won't bother holding back while fighting. Even if she won't kill you, she'll use whatever force is necessary for taking you down:

My Paladin fell because I refused to kill a child in gladiatorial combat. I knew he would be killed if I didn't kill him, but I couldn't do it. He was tortured for a week while I was magically frozen to the spot. He cursed my god and me until his dying breath, so great was his agony.

My DM said I fell because I could have put him out of his misery quickly if I'd simply killed him.

Well, the test DOES say to skip questions that are 'normal' for the setting. i.e. magic weapons in D&D, etc.

Admittedly, I just wanted a backstory that justified having been well-born and being raised by whores.

-family worshipped Grazzy-kun, the six-fingered lord, rogue ran away before he could be railroaded into an Evil rite of passage

-ran into the temple sector of town and found one that was nice and low-traffic

-turns out it's Lastai's temple, so he gets taken in by a kindhearted Madam and does odd jobs (remember that episode of the Simpsons with Bart and the Bordello?)

-gets noticed by a thieves' guild member and sponsored for training

-fairly normal thiefy life until contracted by the army for spyin' on the army of classic redshirts (led by drow, with an Alhoon considering investing in their 'venture')

-met up with party, you know the rest. Recently, I ALMOST tumbled past a charging, CR26 Howling Dragon without any attacks of opportunity. He got me with his tail.

The only person that can make a paladin fall is a paladin.

It doesn't matter jack shit what the BBEG does - his sins are his own to answer for and the paladin bears no responsibility for anything he does, no matter what the BBEG says.

It's only if the paladin himself commits an evil act that he risks falling, a fact sadly missed by so many of these retarded dilemmas that magically lead to the paladins losing their powers.

Some fuckers seem to think that failing to stop a great evil, despite wanting to, should cause a Paladin to fall. That's not how it works. Incompetence is not evil.

Only deliberate evil actions, or deliberate lack of action that is directly evil, can cause a Paladin to fall.

If somebody tries to force a Paladin to kill one guy or else a million others die, the paladin will fall IF he kills the one guy. That is not helping the "greater good". It is just a concession to evil and he will fall if he goes along with it. On the other hand, if he attempts to save everybody involved, no matter how obvious it is that it won't work, he has chosen the path of no evil and will not fall.

If hes mid fall you can't do much. if you cut the rope YOU killed him. your best bet is to talk him out of it. Also there is a slight chance that you can pull him up slowly without breaking his neck and suffocating him, and since you are a paladin you can heal his wounds and get him to an apothecary to cure the poisons.

So... a set of rules of behaviour. Like I said.
In the case of a paladin, one of these rules would presumably be "I do what my code says to, because my code/church/deity knows best". If their personal integrity was the same as their code, they wouldn't need one in the first place.

True enough, I usually see religious paladins so that's what I was thinking of. It's not really relevant, though. The fact remains that the paladin or other lawful character has a set of rules which include definitions of how to behave and by and large follows them to the letter. As opposed to, say, a neutral character, who takes an ends justify the means/big picture approach, or a chaotic character who acts according to its whims.

Aang from Avatar the Last Airbender, after the finale I'd say LG. Despite being pretty carefree and all about freedom etc, he has his own set of strict personal guidelines (his teachings as an Air Nomad) that he absolutely will not compromise on, no matter what. In the series finale, he has to beat the Firelord, and everyone (including his own past lives, including his past life that shared the same teachings) tell him that he needs to act, needs to be pragmatic and must put the greater good above his own personal spiritual wellbeing. but he flat out refuses to kill this guy. Aang kicks reason to the kirb and does the impossible.

He takes the third option.

THAT is what truly makes a character truly Lawful Good (and truly a paladin especially) in my eyes, they never just bow down and accept evil in the world, they never, EVER let evil have the slightest victory, not even over themselves.

Superman never kills, because Superman can't be allowed to kill, he has too much power. A Lawful Good character wont let millions die, just to appease the unstoppable enemy, even if opposing that enemy will lead to the end of reality, he'll fight the foe, save peoples lives, and when the Apocalypse comes, he'll fight that too.

Killing a kid or letting him be tortured to death? The idea of letting the kid die or killing him wouldn't even BE an option to a lawful Good Paladin, they'd fight tooth and nail to save that kids life, even if it meant their own.

I have a pal.

When he push comes to shove, he'll take a punch not only for his friends, but for anyone (while cussing a lot) because he can't stand bullies and injustice.

He's poor because he freely gives money to anyone who needs it (even strangers), never caring if they pay it back. He says "No one should have to be hungry or sad - I can deal with it, but not everyone can."
Of course, he gets fucked over big time by some people (not by me, I'm not that much of a dick - but it would be oh so easy)

However, he hates the Law, because he thinks "It's not fair" to everyone, so might as well fuck it. Justice for all, or it isn't justice at all.
He's also a cynical asshole who will cuss at you while lending you money: "You stupid prick, can't you keep your money together goddamnit? Here, take mine."
He's also not very trusting of people, still helps them, though.

He gets angry when you lie at him, though he expects it. he also expects you to keep your promises (ie. "Can't keep it? Don't gimme that 'promised' shit, then."). And if you're the one at fault in any given situation, he won't help you and say "It's your fault, now take it like a man. Maybe you'll learn."

As you can imagine, his life is pretty shit. Is he LG? Most people say he's LE.

That's cause you're a pussy. Would Captain America or Superman backdown just cause the world called them evil?

GM: You fall from paladinhood..
Jim: No.. I don't..

Then I bust some heads and tell my party to wave the American flag behind me while I give some speech.

Course I'm a "Holy Liberator".

It was so funny cause we had a new GM once. And I was a Holy Liberator, and he thought he'd be slick by bringing up abortion and me always considering myself chaotic good and prolife.

Girl: Well if you're so worried about me aborting, what about a spell for sterilization?

Jim: I don't negotiate with terrorists..

Girl: So you expect me to stop from choosing what I want, but won't compromise?! TYRANT!

Jim: You know what? Fine.. you want a steralization? *Pulls out sword*

Girl: What are you doing?

Jim: Don't worry, you'll probably live through this.

Girl: Probably? *Stabs her in the stomache*

James: Will that really stop her from getting pregnant?

Jim: What do I look like? A doctor?

so tsundere ~_~

I'd say he's NG.

Not conventional good, that's for sure. Doesn't give two shits about "the system," but he doesn't make it a point to fight it, either.

I feel I should point out that Superman did once execute three criminals who were going to invade and destroy earth.

And that's not even counting Doomsday, but those were extenuating circumstances.

Lawful doesn't mean necessary following the law, but more having a code of ethics, morals, and lines that he does not cross.

Easy answer: NG, just because it's difficult to determine judicial alignment.

Difficult answer: LG. He seems to have a solid, unyielding concept of doing good and paying it forward and doesn't seem to be the kind to easily forsake that. Even if he says "Fuck the Law", he only says so due to the lack of good it does. He seems angry, but then again, a heart of gold is a heart of gold.

So, you stabbed her in the stomach on a hunch because you wouldn't attempt to compromise?

You are evil, but you're that warped kind of evil that thinks they're a force for good. If you were really on the side of good, you wouldn't have hurt her.That wound could one day prove fatal, if not immediately, and you gave it to her simply because you disagreed with her wanting an abortion.

You're not good, no matter how much you tell yourself you are.

That was the one thing in Superman 2 that didn't sit right with me. Superman doesn't kill, especially not the Silver Age Supes he was based on. You should give "Whatever happened to the Man of Tomorrow" a read to see what I'm on about. Doomsday, yeah, I'll concede that, though that was a BID DEAL that he decided to kill him.

Thanks, that makes it a lot clearer. Btw, he dreams about "making a difference", and changing the system we live in but basically, he can't. "I want to live in a world where I and everyone else don't have to be afraid anymore" says he.
Yeah, he's an idiot, but a loveable idiot.

The funny thing is: Everytime someone tells him he's a good guy, he says "Not at all. I'm a bad human being." because he beats bad people up. Since he's a bad guy, he doesn't have any other way to express his disgust with bullies and evil people. That's his logic.

No, not in the movies, though it was the same criminals. Ask /co/ about Pocket Universe Zod and about how Superman broke his no-killing rule.

In his defense, his no killing rule is partially based on the fact that as a kryptonian superman, he's not qualified to decide the course of human lives. But the pocket universe Kryptonians were (kinda) his people, so he was totally allowed to pass judgement on them.

If that makes sense.

I play strictly CG/CN and I will walk the fuck out on a DM who railroads an LG into a fall that the LG didn't want. I hate that shit so damned much.

I ran the Vampire grappling, Nightmare body-slamming, Black Guard wrestling cleric Ingsoc through that Mary Sue test.

The result was 7.

He still continues to be the greatest character I've ever made.
