>>78020252>Why worry about what alignment your character is?
bruh, its just a tool because player are retarded. its a redacted way to encourage proper roleplay using a very recognizable, imprintable, and simple visualization.
it’s literally a retard wrangling tool. so there is a visual change when there is an in game disconnect between what the player does and who the players are generally suppose to be.
for your average idiot, a block moving to the left or down is a much more impactful change then the dm saying “your character probably wouldnt do this” or “it seems like your character is having a change of heart”.
it is an iconic description of gestalt characterization of a character rather than what the character springs from. And seeing how the format is kind of popular, it does seem like an effective way to express “the jist” of a characters attitude.
You dont need it, but it works as a simple reference tool to describe and catagorize a complex long winded explaination of motivation for the purpose of expediacy.
