Dude on OKC: I’m Lawful Good, like a Paladin!
>Men are smarter than women, women shouldn’t display their tattoos, no one should get welfare, abortion is wrong, would rather be wealthy than have peace on earth, and thinks that higher taxes on the rich ‘punishes’ them.
Newflash, you’re not a paladin.
IDK man. Pallys have a tendency to align as “Lawful stupid”
Yeaaaah chaotic good is actually where it’s at
law is inherently corrupt and eventually serves only the most powerful, even if it doesn’t start out that way
we see this reflected in education, medicine, government, even copyright law, everything that is codified eventually only protects the wealthy
I’m just sayin.
Yeah but you know what laws we also got.
Laws sayin’ it aint ok to try and hurt my gypsie gay ass, you know me? Laws sayin ya’ll can’t try to keep most motherfuckers from loving other motherfuckers. We got laws saying kids got the right to go to school, and folks got rights to safety, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Who the shit was feedin me when I was a kid and my mom was too hurt to work? The government, son, cause some fine ass motherfucks got together and said hey lets make a complicated ass set of guidlines to make sure people got to *eat*.
And yeah it aint perfect, but if you think its the law that makes laws shit, you don’t know you’re damn dnd classes one damn bit. Its lawful nutral what follows law for the sake of law alone, and its lawful EVIL that uses the law to hound people for cash, greed, and life.
If a paladin doesnt know when a law is unjust, then thats a shitty ass paladin you got there son. If a baladin aint tryin to fight for everyones life, take your player aside and tell them they’re doing it fuckin wrong.
So don’t try and tell me that laws only codify power for the wealthy, cause if you think people with power suddenly will play *nice* when theres *no* law keeping their damn hands to themselves any old how, you havent examined the history of unconstrained privlidge and the use of law to constrain the ‘survival of the fittist’ bullshit the rich looooove to get up into with a sufficient level of thought and consideration.
Or if you want to TLDR what I’m sayin: I’ll take law over anarchy, OK cupids to much of an asshole to see, and I’ll be rollin’ pallies when I *play* DND.
In which a friendly troll teaches everyone how to be a paladin.
