About Chaotic Neutral
I just want to make sure we’re all on the same page as to what a chaotic neutral character means because I’ve seen people playing them and having it be such an ungodly disruption (like quite a few Lawful Good characters can be) because of the Chaotic Stupid trap.
To me, the CN characters are neutral in that they’re not going to go out of their way to help random people or hurt people they care about but they’re chaotic in that they don’t really care about honor, integrity, or fairness. A CN person will have no compulsions about lying, cheating, using drugs, having promiscuous sex, or whatnot in the pursuit of their other goals. A CN person isn’t random or insane.
I’m just really concerned about CN as an excuse to go all “Wildcard, bitches” and derail the adventure.
As a side note, there are QUITE a few CN NPCs in the game and the above is how I’ll be playing them – not as Malkavians from Vampire.
Some good examples of the Chaotic Neutral character – Han Solo at the beginning of A New Hope.
