A GUIDE TO BEING A CHAOTIC GOOD KINGDOM
Kingdom Bonus for being Chaotic Good: +4 Loyalty.
Let’s face it, if you live in a society that favors freedom of individuality and the virtues of being a good person at heart wouldn’t you be more loyal towards it?
Svenheim is a chaotic good kingdom and here are some pointers as to what that means:
The Chaotic good alignment combines a good heart with a free spirit. A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he’s kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society.

Chaotic Good characters are rebels and free spirits who believe in doing good, by their own standards. Some don’t have a problem with greater systems such as laws as long as they leave them alone; others are anarchists who believe that too much ‘order’ is bad for everybody, and the betterment of all can only be achieved by actively rejecting any higher instances of power. Likely to take a intuitive approach to The Golden Rule, caring about other people’s feelings and needs without having to calcify it into specific rules.
Occasionally, you get a character who doesn’t care for the law, but is not above exploiting it for their own ends, such as a Technical Pacifist vigilante who sees to it that a Serial Killer is arrested and put in jail to prevent any more deaths. One of the most common usage of this trope is the Chaotic Good freedom fighter(s) battling the Lawful Evil Empire. However, most freedom fighters battling such an empire are actually Neutral Good. The best way to determine whether a band of freedom fighters is Neutral Good or Chaotic Good is to look at its organization structure and its end goal. A Neutral Good organization would topple an evil empire in order to establish a more fair and just government or social structure. A Chaotic Good organization would topple the evil empire without any plans on what to replace it with, and would just assume that the innate nature and independent spirit of the self-interested population would allow them to thrive and flourish in and after the transition. Most modern works of shonen fighter series have heroes tend to fall into this alignment to fit the Hot Blooded nature of the series, as laws limit the burning passion to help people.
A Chaotic Good character will do good out of a personal motivation to help others, sometimes even sacrificing themselves (but rarely others); however, an important distinction is that they believe in CHOOSING to do good. Obligation and duty doesn’t really factor in. Also, they are consistently unselfish characters.
An important aspect of Chaotic Good freedom fighters is that they excel in toppling corrupt regimes, but are often pretty terrible with power and responsibility themselves (as some of the examples show). A Chaotic Good character faces a tightrope walk even more narrow than most Lawful Good characters face because of their competing interests in being a free spirit that wants to do good in the world, and their general disdain for the authority and control over people’s lives that they would be wielding to try to do that good.
Chaotic Good can be considered the best alignment because it combines a good heart with a free spirit. Chaotic Good can be a considered a dangerous alignment because it can disrupt the order of society and punishes those who feel the need for a social framework around themselves.
