Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

revised Can a D&D Necromancer be of a good alignment?
links should have titles, not "click here" or similar; format quote as quote: by having it be quoted, people will actually read the first three paragraphs before deciding pre-emptively to avoid the long thing that may or may not be coming

comment Can a D&D Necromancer be of a good alignment?
The god of death in the Realms (at least, before 4e's changes) is neutral.

Experimental edit: completely overhaul to aim at the crux of the problem/research effort, judging from comments.

comment Did I do a bad job as a GM?
Note to other editors: Please don't add the [deathwatch] tag without giving a compelling argument for why this question is inherently about that game and needs the tag. It's just extra information for context for the benefit of answerers, which means it belongs in the body, not the tags. It would not help other Deathwatch players for this to show up in a search on that tag.
