Playing Chaotic Evil

Villainy comes in all manner of forms, from the cool and conniving, the corrupt, the vicious and spiteful. It can be crime so organised it seems impossible to pin down, cruel enough to seem capable of anything, or suitably unpredictable to be considered dangerous beyond all others.

So while I quietly persuade myself not to get too political, let’s take a look into what can earn someone the label of Lawful Evil. Continue reading “Playing Lawful Evil”
