    Default Things not to do when your chaotic neutral

    I just had a completely new idea.

    1. Agree to help an N old lady across the road and instead kill her.

    2. Flip a coin in a life and death situation. Two-Face was a psychotic, not an alignment.

    Act completely lawful good in all circumstances. Oh wait, I seem to recall a Xaositect who did that, so I guess it's OK for a CN character to do.

    Act completely lawful in all circumstances and then spontaneously switch sides claiming that you're maintaining the universal balance.

    Chaotic Evil in my book, and evil enough to drop your alignment pretty much instantly unless you are roleplaying one of those 'balance the good vs evil' characters and you were just forced to do a very, VERY good act and it is bothering you. And you had better be roleplaying that character really well. Thats a thin line to be walking... mighty thin.

    6. Steal from your own party
    6b. Unless you only did it because you felt like stealing something, but fully intend to give it back. Don't be surprised if they don't believe you though.

    7. Don't do anything overtly evil. You're not a monster.

    9. Plan anything.
    10. Consistently leveling up in 1 class.
    11. Talk coherently.
    12. Finish anything.
    13. Stay in 1 form. Constantly mutilate oneself so as to assume 'different form'.
    14. Breathe in random manner. Die if you have to.
    15. Eat absolutely anything and everything. Companions begin to look and taste good.
    16. Even kittens start to look and taste good.
    17. Forget everything once in a while.
    18. Change and throw away magical items once in a while.
    19. Stop using 'CN aligment' as an excuse to kill everything on sight once in a while.

    20) Spend all your skill points on cross-class skills.
    20a) Spend all your feats on Skill Focus for those cross-class skills.
    21) Fail to advance in any class except Commoner "for the novelty."
    22) Burn random structures for "no reason," you'll eventually get in a rut.
    23) Attempt to bribe every monster you face with money stolen from your party members.
    24) Sign a contract.

    8b. Apart from your friends, because being neutral (or evil, on a side note) doesn't mean you cannot have anyone you trust.

    André Breton said that "The simplest Surrealist act consists of dashing down into the street, pistol in hand, and firing blindly, as fast as you can pull the trigger, into the crowd."

    The idea of stopping in the fight with the BBEG to hand him a Teddy Bear never occured to Mr. Breton.

    Anyway;

    28. Do something that you know will be needlessly detrimental to yourself or someone else just for the sake of being random and unpredictable.

    (Incidentally, "What not to do when you're alignment X" tends to break down into the subcategories of "Stuff that is inconsistant with alignment X" and "Stuff that is consistant with aligment X, but is in no way mandated by alignment X, and is also really, really, dumb".)

    Create a barrel of dire monkeys and let them lose in a place of worship.
    Launch a nest of phase wasps into a orphanage by means of a small catapult.
    Break people out of a random prison. then eat them.
    If all else fails, call in an airstrike.

    Breaking people out of a prison and then eating the prison is also frowned upon.

    Except... no, it doesn't. That is ridiculously incorrect. Also, Two-Face could pretty much only be defined as Chaotic Evil, if you had to pin one alignment on him.

    But... if he ALWAYS flips a coin to determine what he does and he ALWAYS does what the coin tells him to do, doesn't that make him Lawful?

    Oooo, now that is something to think about. But some might argue that the fact that he leaves everything to probability and chance chaotic because he doesn't actually control anything.

    BUT one would assume that a truly chaotic character would, eventually, give up on the coin-decision-making process or at least make exceptions whenever he feels like it. Not Two-Face. Strict adherence to a personal code.

    I think he's probably Neutral Evil, with strong Lawful and Chaotic tendencies, probably due to his psychosis.
