D&D Alignment: Ravnica Explained
The D&D Alignment Chart
Alignment represents the “side” a character lies on the scale of morality and personal value. There are two factors in measuring a character’s alignment. On the morality scale, a character is measured by good, evil, or neutral. On the ethical scale, a character leans toward lawful, chaotic, or neutral. There are a total of nine alignments, and each combination drives a character very differently.
Five Colors for Five Tiers
There are five colors that truly define the mythos behind Magic: The Gathering: white, blue, black, red, and green. The five MTG colors closely resemble the Dungeons and Dragons alignment tiers in so many ways. If you re-label each tier of the D&D alignment chart with the values of each mana color, you'll get:
- Lawful = White
- Chaotic = Red
- Good = Green
- Evil = Black
- Neutral = Blue
Black wholeheartedly shares the same, self-serving attributes that define evil in the D&D. White seems like the obvious choice for good, but in the MTG mythos, white leans closer to lawful. Red is known for fiery passion, chaos, and unpredictability. Red is an easy transition to chaotic. Green has a strong connection to nature and an unyielding belief of "one for all." Green values community above all else, making the perfect fit for good. Blue would rather prevent action than take action during most battle scenarios. Blue values progress and knowledge above all else, making an easy fit for neutral. When we apply these colors to their corresponding tiers, you can reformat the grid to look something like this:
