Don't like her but I know she has a baby and is quiet.
Call the police, give information, know the average response time is 20+ minutes
Neighbors door is smashed through
Inform the gentlemen that i've called the police and they had better go.

Get the Adrenalin shakes, grab my motorbike helmet and armoured jacket.

Proceed to attack the group from the rear
Dislocate a couple of their knees before they notice me.
Actually manage to throw another and wind him
Punch #4 in the belly
Starting to get worried as they begin to gang up.

That was vigilante action. Not lawful. Not Paladin.

Chaotic Batman perhaps.

>> No.18832506


The only non lawful part of it is that he didn't try harder to keep them around for the cops, and make a citizen arrest. Its only vigilantism when you go looking for it. If it happens next door and you protect someone its perfectly lawful.

>> No.18832602


Wait, what?

No it's not only vigilantism if you go looking for it. It's vigilantism if you take the law into your own hands, regardless of whether or not you where looking for it, or it found you.

What, exactly, is your problem with that post? It seems perfectly like Lawful Good to me.

In Lawful Good, Good comes before Law. Law is seen as the ideal means to create a Good society. Thus, LG enforces the Law when it is good and just, but won't blink about breaking it if it's evil and tyrannical.

If you want to suck Law's cock, LN is next door.

>> No.18834153

It's Neutral Good, tending to Lawful.
You follow rules most of the time, until the conflict with your own code, which you consider superior.

>> No.18834183

Lawful Good defines "Good" by how closely it matches the law.

Lawful-Chaotic is how you judge morality, Good-Evil is the path you choose.

Except NG doesn't give a toss about the law. Just because you occasionally ignore the law (because it's injust) doesn't mean you're not lawful. NG is focused wholly on good, rather than the law/chaos axis.

Even if a LG tears down a law, he's going to work to use the laws to rebuild in a more Good fashion.

>How closely it matches the law

But in that interpretation good and evil are subject to local laws.

Which does not fly in a universe where good and evil are literally tangible forces that can be detected with spells.

>> No.18834323

Detected morality is defined by your meta-morals.
If you hold laws to be Good, then lawbreakers are Evil, regardless of who made the law.

No, it's not technically vigilantism. Being a vigilante means you are exacting *punishment* outside of the law; not simply the employment of physical force.

Providing immediate aid to someone who is under physical threat does not constitute vigilantism; it may be a real pain to prove good intent - if not you can be charged with assault, but if the court can establish there was a reasonable risk you should be fine.

Lawful Good in D&D terms refers to Justice.

>> No.18834684

Not hard Lawful, still Good. Following his order's (strict) code, so he's still Lawful.

You understand there are scales between Lawful and Neutral right? You can be a little bit Lawful.

thats a stupid unjust law. A paladin would kill those trying to enforce it.

>> No.18834817

Doing what is right no matter what, even if you wind up seriously angering the upper class.

Think Robin Hood, he stole from the rich and gave to the poor. He did a good thing but it was questionable and definitely illegal.

>> No.18834852

But lived by his own moral code.
He never robbed the poor, and avoided killing where possible.
Sounds Lawful.

>Evil King passes law that you have to rape a dog to enter an inn under punishment of beatings

So we're just going to assume a Lawful Good Paladin is working for an Evil King. Nothing wrong with that at all. Argument completely valid.

I'm sure you'll believe it now. I swear every fucking thread we get some autistic inspector javert-type asshole who thinks the false laws of men equals the Natural Law, or that self-defense is vigilantism.

>> No.18835032

Congratulations now you realize why we don't care about alignment anymore.

>> No.18835044

that seems like a contradiction of terms, you cant have a "good" rape, Well i guess you can but not in the sense of good as in just or honerable so a good king making a law that you have to rape a dog means that he is no longer a good king but an insane one.

>> No.18835064


That sounds like a case of the king falling down the alignment scale and the Paladin's big priority should be finding out why the King has become Caligula instead of proof of why Paladins are beholden to their ideals too harshly.

>> No.18835089

Congratulations, Inspector Javert, you aren't as mindlessly deferential to authority as I thought you were.
