Which law? [In reply to] Can't Post

"Which law?" Is a good question. I'd assumed that it was the established conventions of your culture.
Eowyn is an interesting case: we can see her predicament as a modern person ( ought to be able to live her own life) and her tradegy is that everyone else is either overlooking this or can't do anything about it (Aragorn). In effect she deserts her post: chaotic good?

Ah Beregond! His big moment is something so out of character that we're delighted when Aragorn finds a fitting punishment which is more a reward. But it's a fine paradox- in his desperation to do good (save Faramir) he does a murder. Is that his defining moment, or just his most dramatic one?

"Hard cases make bad law" but hopefully they make fun discussion...

I was thinking Bill Ferney probably is true neutral , as CuriousG says; which is interesting- I'm temptied to make him more evil or chaotic than that because he's so unpleasant.

I agree, and its interesting that the good/evil axis is usually easier to do than the lawful / chaotic one. But when I tried doing this for some of George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire (aka Game of Thrones) characters I found it easier to to the lawful axis and harder to do the good!
