Absolutely NOT! It represents the most juvenile and contrived moral philosophy I've ever seen.
No. Morality is too personal and provokes auguments that undermine the fun of the game.
I wish it wasn't. Other fantasy RPG's don't use it, why should D&D?
Does it really matter? Aren't we playing a GAME?
I am satisfied it is. Fantasy RPG's need it as part of the genre.
Yes. Dealing with moral issues maturely is part of the game.
Absolutely! It is superior to any real-life moral philosophy I know of.
'YES' for a reasons other than those cited above. (Please discuss.)
'NO', for a reasons other than those cited above. (Please discuss.)
Man, you really tossed the fecal matter into the ventilator, didn't you!

Is character alignment essential to the D&D experience?
I ask this question because the concept of alignment for characters in D&D bothers alot of the gamers I know. Additionally it seems to me to bother ppl more than anything else...
Can you play D&D without character alignment? Or is it too intrinsic to the game's mechanics or the D&D experience for you?
I think it's too embedded into the D&D "culture". Nonetheless, I think it can be excised from the PC rules--I'll try in my campaigns anyway. I hope the d20 market continues to "think outside the box" too...
(I was going to post something long and involved, but I'd rather see how ppl initially respond to the question.)
Happy Easter, Passover, Beltane, etc...
