Hello, /tg/. I've got a game for you.

Pick a setting from a piece of fiction. Be it movie, book, anime, table-top game etc.

Then, I'd like you to determine where you think it would fall on >pic related.

It's true neutral, anon. It's post-apocalyptic and the Ice King is an innocent man driven insane by an evil magical artifact. He's obsessed with kidnapping princesses because he associates them with his love, who left him because of actions he took when he was under the influence of the crown. He always called her "princess."

How is 40k Noble Dark?

>Space Marines
Many chapters do gladiatorial matches to weed out poor recruit candidates. Getting geneseed inserted into your body can kill you or cause you to go crazy: if this happens, you'll likely be euthanized, and have your brain be used as the computer for a robot or be used as target/close quarters practice for other aspirants. If you make it to being a full space marine, if you get badly wounded, you'll be hardwired into a mecha for millennia.

>Imperial Guard
Grunt soldiers who are sent on suicide missions, massive casualties even if you have a competent commander. If you try and desert you'll be shot where you stand.

>hive worlds
Ruled by corrupt tyrants. Majority of the people live in lawless slums. If you're a psyker, both Astra Telepathica and the devotees of the Dark Gods will want to recruit you, and either way you'll likely end up dead.

>Inquisition
super spies who are above the law and can condemn entire worlds to destruction

>Grey Knights
Kill civilians and allies to acquire pure blood if their weapons and armor need extra consecration. Kill civilians and allies who know too much.

>Emperor
god of mankind, but he's in a psychic coma and is dying. if he dies, mankind will face indiscriminate eternal damnation

>Eldar
Dying race. Have to create boring artificial afterlives with no privacy to prevent souls from being stolen by Slaanesh. Most of their souls still go to Slaanesh anyway, because soul gems can be lost or broken. Only practical way of summoning their last battle-ready god(who was a bloodthirsty psycho even before the fall) is for one of his warriors to allow this god to possess him in a rite of self-immolation. Many of them are too proud to be friends with humans, and so they backstab even their closest allies on a regular basis.

>Tau
Oppressive empire that uses brainwashing and mind control to enslave every sentient race it encounters.

These are the good guys.

Skyrim is Noble Dark to the core. The world's equivalent of Rome has collapsed, and it's a dark age where heros and magic are becoming rare sights. Elves and Dragons are both succeeding so far at destroying mankind, and you're the legendary hero, the only one who can stop them.

im thinking that all this really depends on the point of view

this alignment chart always needs a point of view - typically this is either the average inhabitant of the world or the focus of the setting

Grimdark all the way, baby.

The Universe is dying, and the only way to keep it around is to harness the Power of Despair, and the best way to get that power is to sell tweenage girls Monkey-Paw wishes while turning them into liches. While waiting for the wish to bite the lichgirls in the butt, they are then sent into battle against Reality-Warping monsters. If they survive the Reality-Warpers, they have to deal with the effects of the wish, which, even though it gave you what you asked for, it made sure not to give you what you WANTED. And when the victim finally realizes that the reason she didn't get what she wanted was because she made the wish, then there's a good chance that she'll turn into one of those Reality-Warpers that she was fighting earlier. Really, the wish gets you coming, going, and coming BACK.

Post-Madokami isn't much better; the Universe is STILL dying, the Wish STILL gets you coming and going and there's STILL monsters out there for the lichgirls to fight, but Madokami will spare you the final indignity and take you to Lichgirl Heaven before you finally crack. The lichgirls have no chance of getting out of their bleak situation because the beings that gave them those wishes bacically see them as chatty cattle (and the one person who could go back and try to fix things has decided that this is gonna be as close as she can get to saving Madoka (and she's probably right) so she's not gonna try anymore).

So... yeah, Grimdark.

Exalted is grimdark as fuck, the world was created by uncaring titans, is surrounded by malovelent fairies, underneath it sits an ever expanding blackhole, and heaven is defunct because Zeus is on divine crack. As a mortal, the majority of the population, your only hope is to rely on beings who quite frankly luck into power with no care for morality. And even those of them who are, in fact, looking out for you eventually be swallowed up in the tides of the unknowable curse placed upon them when they slayed creation's architects.

Exalted is a story about heroes fighting to make the world better and they all have very specific ideas on what 'better' means and are perfectly capable of enforcing that whether you like it or not.

Neither. It's Neutral Dark. The world is clearly shit, so Dark is unquestionable. It's not Noble because the good guys get betrayed and stabbed all the time, but it's also not Grim because the same thing happens to the bad guys and when it does they aren't just replaced by other bad guys. Things actually get better for having a bad guy out of the way.

So while it has tons and tons of character death, the deaths are handed out like a lottery and don't particularly favor one side or the other, thus landing it in Neutral Dark despite its high casualty rate.

One Piece is Nobledark as hell. A monolithic global empire with strict and byzantine workings controls four fifths of the through client kingdoms and states and a colossal navy, rewrites history and places harsh embargos on trade. The last fifth is a place of magic and mystery, home to wild, fabulous and nightmarish creatures beyond imagining and even more insane peoples where conflict between independent factions, roaming pirates, rebel and criminal organisations of all shades and circles and the marines run eternal. The last half of this fifth has mindbending geographic and biological phenomena and is largely ruled by four pirate emperors as colossal in their power as they are wild in their attitudes. Ever since the fateful day where a man, hailed across the world as the King of Pirates, delivered a rousing speech telling the world on an unimaginable treasure that he left in the most remote location in the world, embargoed by the four emperors and the elite of the marines, all in one piece for the first to take it, brave men and women young and old have raised black flags and set sail for adventure and glory in the name of freedom and dreams, whatever those words mean to them. Just as many spirited young soul draft for recruitment each day into their local G base, undergoing the gruelling training required to stand against the pirate menace as Grand Line Marines. At the heart of the world, legendary rogues and criminals clash swords and fire pistols between the decks of colossal frigates, explorers and missionaries from remote kingdoms dig out the ruins of lost civilizations long covered up by the powers-that-be while battling both fiendish animals and federal persecution, state-enshrined fortress-palaces and judicial facilities are stormed by freedom-fighters, terrorists and revolutionaries, the legendary naval admiralty wage 40K-worthy wars against veteran pirate warlords, (text limit)

Consider the following. The winning condition for the 40k Ork faction would be an endless, brutal, meaningless conflict.

W40k *is* their winning condition, in other words. They've never not had exactly what they want. They are the one true superpower faction.

I'd say Touhou is Neutral Bright, with heavy leanings to Noble.
Humans and Supernaturals made an explicit contract to not eradicate each other, so you're fine even if you follow your possibly mischievous nature.
You can hit it big if you have talent, or if you're in the position to devote yourself to magic or something. However, chances are you're small fry, so enjoy your peaceful and quiet farmer life.

The first of these seems alright.

The last two seem to be basically a line from positive to cynical twisted beyond usefulness into a grid.

There is no differentiation between noble/grim and bright/dark in the last two.

Alright, I'm going with Dokapon Kingdom because why not.
Definitely Grimbright. Everyone, almost every time, ends up being an opportunist. Every man for himself, and if you can have a chance to further your own goals, you fucking take it. That game gets downright brutal sometimes.

>> No.28946829

Nier is kind of hard to place. The world is unquestionably shitty, with humanity being technically extinct, and the plan to revive them becoming less likely to pan out every single day. The thing is, while the characters do have the power to change the world, they can only change it in ways that make it worse, even if they don't realize it at the time. This is because letting the antagonists get away with their evil plan to save the world would entail a personal sacrifice (pic related) that the main character is simply unwilling to make. Still, it's totally within the realm of possibility that the antagonists win, so I'd put it in nobledark.

Commander Sheperd (the first human member of a group who is selected for their ability to carry out important missions on their own initiative) literally saves the universe singlehandedly, aided by his friends who include the universe's most powerful information broker, a vigilante who manages to piss off the three major merc outfits of the universe by himself, a warlord who united under him his fragmented species, a psychic super-soldier, a super-soldier from a race of super-soldiers a multi-doctorate special forces veteran, a teen genius, and humanity's best pilot who is aided by humanity's only (known) AI, all flying around in the most advanced (non-precursor) spaceship in the galaxy.

If that shit ain't at least Nobledark, I'll eat my hat.

Noblebright/grimdark just depends on your perspective in the universe.

Shepard may be able to accomplish a lot, but only because he has unlimited funding from the galaxy and is probably a pinnacle of human achievement physically and mentally.

But think about it from the perspective of a random civilian, or a batarian.

At the end of the game, after a long war against near unstoppable monsters that were enslaving your family members, your entire biology is changed by a wave of green mana and hooks you up to the borg against your will.

If you're a batarian? Your entire culture and civilization is wiped out because one jackass human thought it was the right thing to do.

The average joes in the mass effect universe are basically helpless, and to them it is quite grim. But such is the fate of all NPCs in a PC dominated universe.

>> No.28950229

>>28950080
yea, it would be nobledark.

Except if you take the retarded end, who mean " all you have done until now is for nothing"
Retarded for this kind of game, but make the grimbright sorta ok. Since the heroes don't matter that much.

Wait, s/hestill save the galaxy. alone.

Definitively noble.
