    Default Warhammer Diety Alignments

    Greetings Playgrounders, I find myself having a bit of a conundrum.

    Many/most of my characters end up worshiping someone from the warhammer fantasy pantheon, because I'm much more familiar with them than I am the untold number of dieties in the DND core.

    so far I've had worshippers of
    Khorne
    Grimnir, Grungi, Valaya
    Sigmar
    Ulric
    Taal

    anyways, my question to put forth to you is this. I've just moved into a dorm on a college campus, and I"m struggling to find a group. In the event that I find one that is already set up, I am (hoping) to play a cleric. specifically, an elven cleric of kaela mensha khaine.

    however there's a slight problem. as a cleric, my alignment must be within one step of khaine's. what's his alignment though?

    the "good" elves would suggest something between Lawful Neutral and Lawful good (to me at least) where he is reveared as the elven god of war. meanwhile the druchii (warhammer's drow equivilant for those of you unfamiliar with the setting) revere him as the lord of murder and worship him as well

    so 'good' elven society is typically between TN and LG and druchii society is almost certainly CE and yet khaine accepts worship from both groups.... What is his alignment?

    please thankyou in advance.

    (if any of you playgrounders are at Wingate university plesase message me



    PS: if there are any other warhammer dieties who's alignments you'd like to state/debate/whatever, feel free to do that in this thread provided the "khaine alignment" question has been answered


    ready....

    Khorne CN
    Grimnir, Grungi, Valaya LN ,LN, LN
    Sigmar LN
    Ulric CN
    Taal NN

    But that is just my opinion and my opinion is that the warhammer world is one of grays on the G/E side of the alignment and that the belief that the chaos gods are evil is only becuase they are the enemy (and everyone thinks the enemy is evil).

    edit: as for Khaine I am of the opinion that he is but a piece or embodiment of Khorne so I would put him at CN so both societies can worship him

    IMHO:

    Khaine: LE
    Shallya: CG
    Verena: LG
    Morr: True Neutral
    Mork and Gork: CN
    Heydrich: LN
    Ranald: LN
    Stromfels: CE
    Manan: LN
    All Comicshorse's posts come with the advisor : This is just my opinion any difficulties arising from implementing my ideas are your own problem

    just out of curiosity...; why do you say the dwarven gods are neutral?

    Well, its not easy to give WH deities an alignment because the fact is that alignments are pretty much blurred. (Or as some people will say there is only Law and Chaos. The rest is evil)

    not to sound sarcastic (because I know it will) BUT


    if it were easy would I be asking the playground?

    the other dieties are highly irrelevant, but kaela mensha khaine kinda matters since it's the base concept for my next character. my first ever cleric and my first ever elf.
