    A continuation of the Hypothetical situation thread from a few weeks ago.

    The Paladin is now free from the sex-crazed drow matron and her nympho daughters. The youngest daughter was the equivalent of a teenager, he was her first and now she's infatuated with him (hooray for teenage hormones). So she helped him escape.

    Now the Paladin is in a bit of a conundrum. He now has an adolescent drow rogue following him around. She's not evil, he checked, she's neutral. She could care less about the battle between good and evil, she's just selfish, amoral, used to taking what she wants when she wants it, facing no consequences for doing so and is prone to violent acts against people who anger her.

    How should the Paladin handle this situation?

    First with kindness and helping her as times goes on.
    Then when she's tired of him leave her for a few days in a run down criminal gang.
    Come back later and ask if she liked it better with the nice guy or with those who are just like her.

    If she's only an adolescent drow, then she's probably not past the point of no return for behavioral teachings. He can begin the long, slow, arduous process of raising her properly, probably by starting in the wilderness with limited outside contact.

    Help her live by example and bring her to a better view and life. It's a great chance to turn a drow away from what they are and into a proper, holy life. It may take years and years, but paladins are exemplars. They can play the long game.

    Well if said Paladin is feeling particularily Masochistic he could try to set her straight.

    For the most part though, I'd suggest getting the hell out of the Underdark before anything else, Matrons might not really love their children but god damn if they aren't Posessive of them.

    Three possibilities:

    1. Insufficient proper nutrition, leading to the body going through puberty earlier because the body thinks it's not going to have a very long run anyways, or

    2. First-world nutrition is better than 'public advocates' (read: doomsayers) state, leading to, well, healthier people. In addition to HEALTHY people, pictured left.

    Actually people go into puberty sooner with good nutrition since the body can afford to donate more calories to the growing process without risking starvation.

    Repostan story from the story from the first thread.

    Alaric slumped back into the soft silken sheets. Two slender, ebony bodies slithered next to him. His naked legs were spread over the edge of the bed and the matron's middle and youngest daughters were eagerly licking the generous load he had blown off of each others naked bodies. The matron and her eldest daughter were on his left and right sides respectively. The matron ran her hand over his muscular chest, her snow white hair splayed out behind her, staring at him with her violet eyes. The eldest ground against his leg, growling hungrily.

    It took Alaric a moment to regain his voice. He stared into the matron's eyes. "Why do you do this?" He asked between pants. "Use people like this?" She languidly ran a finger over the Paladin's muscular chest before replying. "Why shouldn't I? You surface dwellers are all inferior. It is natural that the superior race should use you for abstinence and.." she giggled "amusement."

    "What if the roles were reversed, matron?" Alaric asked, "what if I had kept you a prisoner and raped you whenever I pleased?"

    "Oooh, mother! Maybe we should try that next!" The eldest daughter had stopped grinding on his leg and now moved up parallel with her mother, caressing the captive Paladin's face. Her pale, blonde hair caressed his chest as she moved her deep, amber eyes to stare into his.

    Alaric felt two heavy weights on his legs, he looked down and saw that the middle and youngest daughters had finished licking each other clean and now were sitting on his legs. The middle daughter sat attentively listening, her long aqua hair and pearl draped figure was a paragon of lust. The youngest sat to her left, not as well developed as her sisters and mother she was still quite shapely with her small, perky breasts and bobbed white hair. She pumped his limp member in one slender hand.

    The mother giggled in response to her daughter's eagerness. "Well, sir knight." She said. "I would not be so weak or foolish as to fall into your hands, were you so inclined. Besides, I am a realist. You would never do such a thing to me. It is against your Paladin's code." She shifted her position and kissed her way up his chest to his lips. she breathed before plungeing her tongue into his mouth and withdrawing. "If you can still talk, I don't think you're completely exhausted yet."

    She ran her hand down his chest, his stomach soon she was reciting the arcane incantation he knew all too well. "Delightful Hardness." The daughters cooed in appreciation as Alaric soon became erect again.

    This was going to be a long night.

    So let me get this straight; the Paladin liberated a female Drow adolescent - a being sensitive to bright lights, mind you - into the surface world where she'll be blinded by sunlight every hour of the day whilst in the Paladin's care, therein leaving her unable to see what horrors await her on the surface and unable to defend herself from the prejudices of humans, high elves and other humanoids above ground.

    The Paladin should fall for being a complete moron... fall off a cliff, that is.

    Back on topic.

    Take the drow girl under his wing as a pupil and lover. Teach her good from evil, start with discouraging her violent tendencies.

    Positive reinforcement would be best. Just reward "good" behavior and ignore or remain neutral to "bad".

    First off...
    Maybe in a more modern setting, but how many pointy-eared dark-skinned women do you see in this day and age?

    I thought so.
    Let's think about this logically. Paladin is now, if only temporarily, under the care of a young Drow Rogue. He has three options - take her back to her family, leave her to her own devices, or teach her the ways of Law and Good.

    Option #1 is outright stupid, lest the Paladin wish himself to get captured again or for the girl to be punished (or worse) for helping him escape.
    Option #2... the girl could be left to fend for herself come nightfall, but what happens during the day? Assuming a mid-springtime setting, day lasts around 14 hours. That's 14 hours that she is defenseless thanks to our old buddy, the Sun.
    Option #3... the Paladin could escort the girl to his own establishment for her to live in safety, but there's one problem - he can really only move during the day and can't protect the girl at night. They're at an impasse because they can't really go anywhere without encumbering themselves.

    In all three scenarios, the Paladin is out of luck.

    The paladin should get her to a nunnery as soon as possible. She will be isolated from xenophobia as much as possible, and also be in a carefully controlled social and moral environment in order to undo years of drow machinations and evil socialization.

    She'll also be in a female run society still, and so she won't go totally bananas. She will be cut off cold-turkey from any sex craziness, and this may cause problems, she'll have to learn that things operate differently in the LG world.

    The pictured body type is almost identical to my wife. She's 5'4" and 210 pounds, her breasts are a slightly smaller 36DDD.

    The great thing about my wife is she carries her weight in all the right places, and delicious cubby is delicious and soft.

    The bad thing is that statistically she's going to die about 15 years before me, she already got early arthritis, pre-diabetes, back pain from having 36DDD's and she's so out of shape she can't tolerate more than 10 minutes of hard physical activity. Sexually it's limiting too, she feels pain whenever she's on her knees, so no cowgirl position and no oral while I'm standing, which is no fun.

    She's also on prozac for the self-loathing created by her body-image and can't get a job in the opera world because she doesn't fit the image of most romantic leading ladies. Admittedly these are social issues, which would resolve if social views were different.

    Wouldn't the issue be that if the Paladin passes on a chance to do some possible good in the world that he's essentially falling?

    What's the phrase, "Evil persists when good men let it happen"? If he doesn't TRY and just abandons her or writes her off he's essentially guaranteeing she goes down a path of darkness, and as a Paladin he has to at least make the proper effort to repay her kindness, however it was motivated.

    At least that's how I read it. If it were anyone but a Paladin they could excuse it as too much trouble, but this guy is obligated to at least make a serious effort.

    I see two ways this relationship could go.
    One, the paladin tries to be something more than a sex toy to the teen, like a mentor or quasi- father figure, and either wean her off the lawful hot dickings or wait until her hormones settle down a bit and she loses interest.
    Two, the drow's lust acts as a stepping-stone of sorts for her to get to know the paladin better. With time and patience, helpful lessons in goodness and law, and of course more lawful hot dickings, she comes to truly love her companion.
    Both scenarios come with their share of difficulties as far as both parties are concerned.

    No, in order to be evil by D&D's definition you must actively seek to harm others. Neutral characters might commit acts that others would consider evil, but they do it out of a lack of concern. Most of the official interpretations of the alignment system support this view. For example, in NWN2, in order to stay neutral you must do some pretty vile things. Like leave a group of kids to get devoured alive by wolves because you didn't think it was your problem.

    The only way I see her as detecting neutral is if she had some very nice qualities deep down. I mean, yeah, freeing her boy toy is a good start, but she needs a bit more than that.
    She doesn't have much sense of right and wrong. Although this means she might do bad things, she does, on an unconscious level, have a moral core, and will gravitate more towards good acts than evil ones. That she doesn't care for the difference between right and wrong means that compared to most of the other drow, she sometimes does good things at random when nobody's looking.
    While she might be selfish, she doesn't generally take what she doesn't need. Maybe sometimes after eating her fill of a meal she'd pass a morsel of leftover food to one of her slaves, explaining it away as mere pity.
    While she might be prone to violence, her fits are more due to personal fears and frustrations than any desire to do harm. On the contrary, she often regrets causing pain, though she suppresses these feelings at the behest of her family.
    There. Now she's neutral.

    the Book of Exalted Deeds is pretty explicite on how acts of redemption are one of the greatest goods that can be done... thus befitting the Paladin very well.

    Even then, the OP's description is still CN. Especially if her violent outbursts were motivated by fears of rejection and insecurity (this is a teenage girl we are talking about). I mean, think about it. She turned her back on her people to be with the man she loved. Naturally, she would be terrified of the new people in her life rejecting her as she really has nowhere else to go. Therfore, attempting to stab the merchant for calling her a "Vile Drow" and refusing to sell to her is an understandable response. Which will probably be followed by a d'awww worthy bursting into tears and falling into the Paladin's arms after she thinks noone else is looking.

    I think you miss the point. If you have a set of rules, you try your best to follow them. That's for neutral. Lawful also tries to follow rules made by other people.

    Chaotic is just doing whatever the fuck they want to. Sure you can say that whatever they want to is their set of rules, but that's not the point.

    Right, thats why characters like Hannibal lecter are CE, despite appearing to have a "code."

    People think of LE as being the potentially "least evil" because such characters are still constrained by some sort of ethical structure, if not a moral one. But I posit that CE can also be less evil. after all, Lawful causes can push people to do things so despicably evil that the average CE murdering dipshit would be, if not exactly repulsed by, then feel queasy about. CE does not necissarily equal sociopath. it just usually does.

    Well... it also kinda depends, I personally feel that slashers often constitute Lawful Evil, but bound by the laws of Hell rather than the laws of the mortal realm. Hellraiser Cenobites, Pyramid Head, Hannibal Lecter, etc. all have a very lawful demeanor, only harm the deserving, and also don't behave all hedonistic like you'd normally associate with CE.

    but without the framework of Hell being a lawful place, it doesn't make too much sense.

    Shouldn't the alignment system depend on the players themselves? Most of us grow up in a lawful good/neutral environment, so that's what lawful good/neutral is based on. It is just a way to describe other alignments and character types.

    Yes, in D&D they often say that similar alignments get along, that's because they both seem "good" to each other and follow a code similar to theirs. (Probably.)

    Although the explanation about evil seemed odd -- why wouldn't they work together unless forced? They could be evil because they raid other races' settlements but try to keep order in their own.

    I guess it comes down to the way the DM. He could make that race of stealing little-somethings be good, because their intentions are, but it is somewhat contradictory to what the books originally said.

    sadly, the alignment system assumes a lack of frothing racism and xenophobia.

    For example, a given white southern racist might love his wife and kids, not lie about major things, give to charity, be poite, and in general be NG. But, put a black guy in front of him, and suddenly its all "burn the nigger, purge the nigger, in white jesus's name, let none survive."
    So, is he EVIL the presence of black people, or is the alignment system inherently flawed.

    It's flawed. it doesnt represent real-life morality. It's great for describing fictional characters, but morality does not work that way, because in real life, we have in-group loyalty, out-group hostility, institutionalized cruelty, xenophobia, racism, and other such issues.

    The primary question we need to resolve, in order to determine how our Pally handles this situation is to determine whether or not they keep having sex.

    I think we call all agree that it is not inherently evil to have sex outside of marriage (though obviously it *can* be), so Pally is in no danger of falling (hur-durrr) -but depending on his code, it is probably UNLAWFUL. That being the case we can take the dickings out of the Good/Evil dimension and put them into the Lawful/Chaotic dimension.

    It's a given that under ordinary circumstances, the paladin would NOT be sticking it in an adolescent chaotic neutral adolescent. But, for the last goodly while, he has been.
    Because of this, she helped him escape and left her family to be with him. She obviously held the expectation that the sexings would continue; indeed this would have been one of her primary motivations in helping him, so she could have him herself. By accepting her aid with those unspoken but understood conditions, I would argue that this constitutes a tacit contract.

    It would actually be WRONG -both bad and unlawful- to stop having relations with her at this point. It's wrong that he's fucking her in the first place, but it would be a greater wrong to stop now.

    His responsibility must be to:
    a) return to the surface,
    b) see to her safety and well-being once there,
    and either
    c) work on her character development as their relations continue, AND/OR
    d) see to it that she doesn't have a broken heart when their relations are at an end.

    These are arguably the four most important words in this entire thread. The alignment system goes by public morals as per human standards, not that of elves, dwarves or what-have-you... similar races don't share this same system of morals and beliefs to the exact letters and THAT is why this system is inherently flawed. Wherein one player could say his actions (ie: killing a man who poses a threat) are geared toward the goodwill of the party whole, the rest might see it as murdering someone who tried to defend themselves from an even larger threat and thus, evil.

    Not at all. THERE ARE cosmic absolutes in D&D, and just because a people don't *think* their evils are evil, doesn't mean they're not.

    All other disagreements are covered under the lawful-chaotic spectrum. And provided that the laws are not themselves evil (cosmic absolutes, again), it is lawful to follow them no matter how they depart from human/player norms.

    If the law says women shall be veiled and topless in public on sundays, then by god the PCs chicks had better stay inside on sunday if they have objections.

    I'd imagine that a lawful good character such as our paladin, when put in such a position, would likely try to "take responsibility" as soon as possible and marry the girl; she could probably be convinced by the fact it would mean she has him all to herself for the rest of his like—seeing as how she was jealous enough to get herself effectively exiled from her culture in order to continue sexing him up alone, she would probably respond positively to this.

    The alignment system is 'flawed' because it is simplified. It is only two dimensional. Probably a third and maybe even a fourth dimension should be added, which would describe the way they act around friends/family and with strangers.

    However, adding such dimensions to the alignment system would also add more flaws, which could only be fixed by making it even more complex. In the end we'd have an alignment system, which is very difficult to read, but would describe the character in detail. That means "detect alignment" = "what kind of a character is he?". It could work with NPCs but probably not that well with players.

    In fact, the drow consider the idea of marriage utterly ridiculous. He would have to propose the idea to her very carefully, and hint that there would be a cessation of sexings if she doesn't do it. Even then, the Paladin would have to resign himself to the idea of an "open marriage."
