Thoughts On RPG Alignment

My thoughts on the origins of Alignment, where it went wrong, and how I re-interpreted the thing for my own use... and hence, why I for one like Alignment for my RPGs.

I think there are certainly ways to handle this with a narrative approach, and in fact, I probably should have mentioned that this is what I do usually as well (didn't think of it while recording) ... but on those occasions where the Player wants to play a Specific Alignment character (Paladin / Anti-Paladin, etc) then I do the tracking in order to keep things fair. If they behave like a Paladin, they earn points and powers. If not ... the meander around like every other ordinary person who ever lived.
