The only correct alignment chart.

>> No.21125355

Only one with any hint of "good" in 40k in them might be th Harlequins or some less warlike craftworlds. They have an agenda that is not entirely selfish or blindly zealous and furiously indiscriminately violent.

They're still not "good guys".

Tau are Orwellian totalitarian caste-stuck dicks.
Imperium is brutally violent towards threats and totally uncaring of its people and planets, an impossibly large mass of bureaucracy struggling to run itself.
Chaos is chaos, evil, twisted and selfish.
Orks are sadistic, warlike and violent by their very nature. Comical, but still evil.
Dark eldar are junkies and parasites whose existence depends on the suffering of others. Evil.
Nids eat, eat, eat and survive. "neutral" in their indiscriminate hunger, but also very nasty.
Crons are evil. Kill everyone else, reinstate the old dynasties and take over teh worlds and stuff. Boring evil.
Eldar like Biel-Tan are racist, warmongering delusional fucks who are in ragemode going "Kahine smash!" at everyone.
Space marines are killing machines beyond human, with purpose only to fight eternally. Each chapter is driven by creed, greed or thirst for power. They might not be intentionally evil towards imperials, but not good guys either.

Which is true, but I see the core of it in that quote; "Surrender for the Greater Good!"
Surrender. Implies a recognition of the enemy's right to live, survivable treatment accorded to a legally recognized combatant, and some kind of due process.
That may involve attempts at propaganda and reorientation, but in the end it's also "we don't kill you for lulz" with the possibility of a prisoner exchange (which probably never works because no one else takes prisoners).
That's Lawful, and barely 3E Good, but imho it's still LG.

No one else would even consider taking prisoners unless they were planning on also taking slaves.
Much as I am Eldaraboo, I can concede that the nicest thing the Eldar would to a surrendering enemy is just walk away. No more, no less, no supplies, no aid. Enjoy the snow/mud/radiation, Mon'Keigh.

>> No.21125934

I would probably place Eldar as Chaotic Neutral along with the Orks. This is because the Eldar rarely care about anybody else and only ensure their own survival, no matter the cost (which seems like a very Chaotically Neutral thing to do.) Yes, they ARE defenders of the status quo and laws, but only in internal affairs.
In foreign policy, they act like they damn well please.

But it's not evil if you're doing it for fun! Or something.

>> No.21129249

The line of thought is basically, "It is the nature of orks to murder and enslave, and it is never evil to follow your nature, therefore orks are not evil." Yes, it is a stupid argument.

I'm not sure that the Orks can qualify for an alignment on here. They were genetically engineered towards violence, rather than defecting towards it from some moral high ground. It'd be like calling a lion evil.

Orks are sentient, and can choose not to murder. There are orks who trade shit or who build shit. Also, space marines and temple assassins are genetically engineered to murder, but they still have choice.

And they choose to slaughter innocents by the hundreds, if not thousands. The difference is that they havent been built from the ground up eons ago over generations and generations to literally do nothing but kill. The whole SM induction trial is all about instilling in them a mere fraction of the eternal bloodlust that is married so closely to orkish genetics.

Now Im not saying orks are victims or that they should be pardoned for their crimes, but rather that, unlike the SMs and assassins, they literally do not know any better. Every fiber of their being screams at them to kill kill KILL and due to their low intellect they assume everyone else is exactly the same, just not as good since they're not orks.

In terms of DnD alignment, I would say this makes them chaotic neutral, as they care not what they kill, only that they get to do so. They are no more evil than a savannah fire or a tornado.
