I know this has probably been carefully considered by the most excellent mathematicians, not to mention your freelance authors, who've written million-purchases a year titles, but maybe its worth a look, possibly a second look, and if I've really got your attention, maybe you'll comment.

An interesting point: Evil is not always Chaos. Although the result of evil is always Chaotic, the Evil itself is not always disorganized, as is proven by the case of the Mystran. Lawful Evil can frequently be as or more dangerous than Chaotic Evil.

It's nice to see a new face on the boards. Let me first welcome you to the Development boards. I'm Rayne. Um…I don't really have a specific area of concentration. I do magic. Beastiary, plants, language, hobbits, and this and that, here and there.

In any case, I'm assuming you've read on the demons, which is good. It's nice to know that people are informing themselves a bit before proposing and asking questions.

I guess I'm confused about what you mean by Chaotic Evil and Lawful Evil. By Lawful evil you mean...? Just not following the rules because of one's own beliefs? You might try looking up the Black Butterfly Rovers, or maybe looking at Fluffy's Thieves Guild in the People section. If this isn't what you're referring to, I guess I don't really understand.

Keep in mind that demons are separated from the rest of society, for the most part. In many cases, they're something of myth. They don't know the laws of society, don't know the rules of the land, so that's something to consider.

Yet you take me for a clown, or a clod, or a betrayer, and so I must be if you see me so. The magic on you is only magic and will vanish as soon as you are free, but the enchantment of error that you put on me I must wear forever in your eyes.

It's all ADnD, Rayne. :)
The whole ADnD universe is based on a pretty simple system of values. There are Chaos and Order, Good and Evil. Everything balances between this poles. The so-called alignment shows a persons attitude towards them. Lawful person would be someone who believes in Order and that everything should be systematized and have its strictly defined place in the world. A chaotic person is someone who thinks there should be no laws at all. Then we add an attitude towards egoism or altruism (Evil or Good) and voila: we have an alignment.

So, lawful evil = one respects the law and uses it to reach own purposes.
Chaotic evil = one disrespects the law and cares only about oneself.
