First and foremost, that is a post on the NEW 4.0 Alignments. So keep that in mind.

The concept people need to grasp is that Alignments are guides to behavior not strict adherences. Your character should maintain an average of behavior in the realm of their alignment. Can you have days where you do something outside your alignment range? Sure.

The exception:

Paladins: Paladins are required to follow the letter of the law OF THEIR GOD. They should adhere as best as they can to the laws of the land and so on, but first and foremost they represent their deity. Does this mean they can commit murder in the name of their god? … in fact, this is possible and is an EXTREMELY RARE occurrence … HOWEVER, they will then be held accountable by the law of the land and would turn themselves in.

The exception to the exception:

Paladins or Tyr: These guys are paladins to the writer of Markshire’s laws. They believe in following the letter of Markshirian Law because those laws represent their deity’s doctrine.

Deities and Paladins:

Odin, Tyr, Balder, Forsetti, Frey, Freya and Heimdall
