Fascism creates a society in which laws are used as a tool of oppression and control but don't apply to the oppressors, who are by the system's fundamental design outside their reach.
That's Neutral Evil. #DnD
Lawful Evil characters won't take bribes if bribing someone in their position is illegal. In fact, they'd report them to the authorities, even if it was a close friend or acquaintance. #DnD
Lawful Evil characters would turn their own son in for smoking a joint, knowing he'll be put in prison under brutal conditions for 15 years. #DnD
Neutral Evil will ACT like they believe that when it benefits them, but they don't. THEY don't need or want to be controlled. #DnD
Chaotic Evil believes in nothing.
"But Vex, isn't that the same as not believing in anything?"
No. Chaotic Evil doesn't NOT believe anything, it BELIEVES IN NOTHING. #DnD
"Nothing means anything. No ideology holds any value because value doesn't exist. Heck everything." #DnD
a. genuinely interesting
b. genuinely Chaotic Evil
Like, they've done it maybe once in cinematic history, and yeah, it's precisely the one you're thinking of #DnD
Ironically it's also this guy. #DnD
He has ideas about how the world works and how people "should" act. #DnD
But I still fundamentally don't believe you can have a Chaotic Evil Paladin. #DnD
The very idea of that is so antithetical to Chaotic Evil that I don't believe it could happen. They don't believe in oaths. Heck, they don't believe in BELIEFS. #DnD
But you're automatically breaking that oath merely by swearing it, since you then have to act like it's meaningful. #DnD
