Holiday Dream

This week I've been off from week. This has given me the opportunity to sleep (late) and dream. I had a quirky disturbing one this morning. Usually I dream about groups of people. In retrospect, I see that this creates a wonderful support structure in my dreams. This time I was alone. I didn't have a car. I was suppose to have a car. In fact, I was supposed to have a white truck, a older sedan, and maybe another vehicle. The truck was stolen (I think) and I couldn't remember where the sedan was. The interesting part is that part of me knew I was dreaming, as was sure that I really did have vehicles (a sedan and a van in RL), but didn't in this dream. I hooked up with some people but then they took off in the only transportation available, along with $20,000. I commenced to walking the sidewalks and businesses, waiting for the people to come back. They didn't, and my dream flash-forwarded to me (now as a female) going to nursing school, getting a degree, and tracking down the lady who took the car and money.

Strange stuff....

Some Thoughts on Alignment

My characters when I played D&D. I guess I am less enthralled with order now. I still play naughty characters in computer games.

Lawful Neutral

Lawful neutral combines reliability and honor, without moral bias.

Lawful neutral characters are directed by law, logic, tradition, or personal code. Order and organization are paramount to them. They may believe in personal order and live by a code or standard, or believe in order for all and favor a strong, organized government.

This does not mean that Lawful Neutral characters are amoral or immoral, or do not have a moral compass; but simply that their moral considerations come a distant second to what their code, tradition or law dictates.

A functionary, soldier, or employee who follows orders without question regardless of the result; an arms dealer who sells wares to the highest bidder, whatever that bidder may do with them; and an impartial jurist who sticks rigidly to the rule book are all examples of lawful neutral characters.

How I probably run my life now. The shamanic path has bended me this way.

Druidic True Neutral

In Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, all druids were true neutral. The true neutral alignment is central to the philosophy of neutral druids.

This is because a druid's main charges — plants, animals, and the health of the planetary ecology — essentially lack alignment or ethos. Therefore, druids can feel free to use almost any means necessary to protect them.

The druidic order works to maintain the natural balance among the alignments. However, druids do realize that the actions of others — including their own — will prove significant to the cosmic balance. The druid sees the friction between alignments as the driving force in the world.

When faced with a tough decision, a druid usually stands behind the solution that best serves nature in the long run.
