I'm making an adaptation of Merlin from the Arthurian Legends in my game, in this I intend him to be an Unfettered who is obsessed with becoming a Reality Warper
, and perhaps his experiences have twisted him to the point where his sense of humanity is stripped away, to where most will view him as more akin to a Humanoid Abomination
The thing is...I don't intend him to be truly evil, but instead I intend for him to be the farthest thing from good without going over the edge to evil.
The various tropes about Unfettered, Moral Event Horizon
, and whatnot seem to give mixed messages. For instance, the entry for Unfettered says that there are no Moral Event Horizons for them, but why then are there so many Complete Monster
Basically, I view Merlin as more someone who will do literally whatever it takes, but isn't really malicious, his attitude is 'nothing personal.' Is that enough to make him still Chaotic Neutral
, even if it means blowing up the occasional orphanage?
