    Default Would an anti-Paladin thread be illegal?

    I had an idea for a thread, but it occurred to me that it might be problematic, and wanted to check first.

    The thread idea was, "what would an anti-Paladin look like IRL?".

    I intended it to be a light-hearted look at how silly the class is… and a way to understand / discuss exactly how its rules work vs how they should work. But I'm worried that, since it nearly mandates that every post discuss illegal activities, it might be verboten.

    Thoughts?

    Illegal activities in a fictional context are fine, so long as you're not going into considerable detail. "So, an anti-paladin would definitely be running drugs" is fine; "Here's how he'd avoid the DEA" is not. It will be the kind of situation where it will be easy to stray into politics... whether or not certain things should be illegal, should be counted as evil, the situations for such... but, at its core, it is not an automatic no.

    Cool, thanks.

    I'll try to work up an appropriate warning before creating the thread.
