I think alignment would definitely help DD a lot, but it would also make it too similar to D&D. Maybe a different alignment system should be put into place, like instead of "lawful good" you have the "knighthood" alignment, which would be difficult to obtain. Instead of "chaotic neutral" you have the "selfish bas-tard" alignment, with all the appropriate descriptions therein. Something like that would be interesting.
How would you tell the difference between Chaotic Good and Chaotic Neutral? The pains of straying of the path of ones alignment but to find one's self again? What if your on the borderline of both Chaotic Good and Chaotic Neutral? What then? Is alignment not how society as a whole views an individual? What if the individual views society differently?
This is SpArTa!! oh im sorry, I must have took a wrong turn..somewhere...(runs away)
