People change over time as can alignments shift to nearby points on the good/evil law/chaos axes. The only major snafu that ever comes into play is when one goes between radically different points multiple times. I cannot recall the source but deities and other aligned creatures tend to get annoyed if you keep bouncing all over the alignment chart. ...

The rules indicate that everything that isn't true neutral has at least a "faint" aura matching with it's alignment (though I'd argue that faint auras are not a big deal and not very noticeable unless many overlap) and that specific circumstances need to be met in order to show up more strongly on alignment-detection effects. From what I gather, the rules ...

Detect [Alignment] will detect any creatures of a particular alignment. What your friend is likely confused about is the Aura Strength mechanic. Creatures like Clerics and Demons have a stronger aligned aura will detect as if they are stronger than a normal aligned creature would. Basically, creatures with a particular alignment that don't have any ...

Sure. 4e really doesn't care. Matters of deities and alignments are really left entirely up to the DM. Talk to your DM about this and he may develop some narrative consequences to the change, however, there are no mechanical means nor consequences to make the change. Also, as Oblivious Sage points out, you can totally change your alignment without changing ...

First off, it's worth noting that it's time to link to the SRD: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/alignment-description/additional-rules Second - you first need to put yourself in a very specific frame of mind: In Pathfinder, Good and Evil as system terms are not relative terms. They are Absolute. They are also forces of nature. And so when you read those ...

The way I would look at this question is by considering the character's unforced or natural behavior to determine alignment, rather than their public persona. Another thing you can consider, particularly when looking at the Inquisitor is the possibility that the character does not actually worship the deity they think they do. While neither is specific to ...

Among them is an inquisitor NPC who delights in torture and slaughter of all those he deems enemies of the church, he eventually comes after the player characters for harboring someone who he deems a heretic. In this instance, delighting in torture is an evil act. It is neither an altruistic act, nor does it respect the lives of the people whom the ...

Different groups use the alignment rules differently, allowing it to define or dictate the character's actions - your mileage will vary. Here are two ideas which may help you to standardize the alignment an NPC is said to posses based on his actions. Lets focus on the Good - Evil axis (the same ideas appliy to the Law - Chaos axis): The bare bones of the ...

As others point out, this is primarily opinion based as to "what alignment these characters are", so instead I'm going to work around a few problems that these character's alignment could cause. A king does not have to worry too much about being found out by detect alignment spells. He can certainly afford a level 3 cleric for ...

There is no hard rule about alignments and classes, or classes and races. The book specifies generalities, and also gives counter examples. For example, in the Paladin class under the Oath of Vengence Tenets (page 88 of the Player's Handbook), it says that Oath of Vengence Paladins are often Neutral or Lawful Neutral in alignment. A neutral good tiefling ...
