I have a very quick question about alignment steps in Pathfinder with regard to Clerics/Inquisitors/etc. Using the typical 3x3 chart, alignment steps for character vs deity are measured without diagonal lines, right? In other words, if the chart were a map, each step is N/S/E/W but never NW/SW/NE/SE.
To show this visually:
- These directions are 1 step:
← ↑ → ↓
- These directions are 2:
↖ ↗ ↘ ↙
A NN character is 1 step away from LN, NG, NE, CN. 2 steps away from LG, LE, CG and CE.
A NG character is 1 step away from LG, NN, CG. 2 steps away from LN, NE, CN. 3 steps away from LE and CE.
Is that correct?
Or am I mistaken and
↖ ↗ ↘ ↙ are also 1 step away? So a NG character is 1 step away from LG, NN, CG, LN and CN. 2 steps away from LE and CE.
