The descriptions below are only to be used as "guidelines" to help
players develop their character's persona. Players should remember that the
religious laws and rules
within their own religion will have the final word on behavior in that alignment, and that the rules of LUN are to be followed always.
LAWFUL-GOOD characters of this alignment believe that an orderly, strong
society with a well-organized government can work to make life better for the
majority of the people. To ensure the quality of life, laws must be created
and obeyed. When people respect the laws and try to help one another, society
as a whole prospers.
Therefore, lawful-good individuals strive for those things that will bring the greatest benefit to the most people and cause the least harm.
LAWFUL-NEUTRAL characters believe that order and organization are of paramount importance. They believe in a strong, well-ordered government, whether that
government is a tyrannical dictatorship or a benevolent democracy. The benefits of organization and regimentation outweigh any moral questions raised by their actions.
Characters of this alignment will not view things as good or evil, but will always strive to follow laws and make order where there is none.
LAWFUL-EVIL characters believe in using society and its laws to benefit themselves. Structure and organization elevate those who deserve to rule as provide a clearly defined hierarchy between master and servant. To this end, lawful-evil characters support laws and societies that protect their own concerns. If someone is hurt or suffers because of a law that benefits lawful- evil characters, too bad. Lawful-evil characters obey laws out of fear of punishment. Because they may be forced to honor an unfavorable contract or oath which they have made, lawful-evil characters are usually very careful about giving their word. Once given, they break their word only if they can find a way to do it legally, within the laws of society
