friday5: Friday 5 for December 11: Alignment

You can play along by following the linkie in the side bar.  This makes you think a lot, and is fun.  I'm just a bit too old to know much about this though. Lol

 1. In Dungeons and Dragons, you are asked to select an alignment: Do you favor lawfulness or chaos? Are you on the side of good or evil? Your answers define your alignment: Lawful Good, Lawful Neutral, Lawful Evil, Neutral Good, (true) Neutral, Neutral Evil, Chaotic Good, Chaotic Neutral, and Chaotic Evil. Which are you?

There's a problem with blind obedience to "law" because sometimes laws are made by bad people, so I would choose neutral Good.  It's a good striking position, you know? :~]

  2. In Veronica Roth’s Divergent, set in a post-apocalyptic utopian society, citizens choose factions based on competence and values. The Dauntless are the brave, the Amity are the peaceful, the Erudite are the intelligent, the Abnegation are the selfless, and the Candor are the honest. Which faction would you test most competent for, and which would you choose strictly on your values?

Frankly, I would move as far away from that Utopia as I could.  I do not like factions,  Soooo do not like them.

 3. You’ve probably answered this before, but answer it again. In J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, students are sorted into houses based (primarily) on character. Gryffindor values courage, Hufflepuff values loyalty, Ravenclaw values cleverness, and Slytherin values ambition. Which are you, and which is the most recent love of your life?
Gryffindor.  Definitely.

 4. In the late 1970s, a Saturday morning cartoon called Laff-A-Lympics pitted characters from different Hanna-Barbera programs in a Battle of the Network Stars kind of weekly competition. The Scoobie Doobies were captained by Scooby-Doo and made up of then-current Hanna-Barbera characters, including the entire Scooby-Doo gang, Dynomutt, Captain Caveman, Speedy Buggy, and Hong Kong Phooey. The Yogi Yahooeys were captained by Yogi Bear and made up of characters from the 50s and 60s Hanna-Barbera programs, including Huckleberry Hound, Augie Doggy (and Doggie Daddy), Quickdraw McGraw, and Grape Ape. The Really Rottens were the villains, captained by an original character named Mumbly and made up of original bad-guy characters who cheated at every opportunity. Which team do you belong to? And if you remember the program, which team did you cheer for?

I never watched Saturday comics past the time I was 9, and so, I have no idea what this show is.  As to teams, I once played a witch in a play, but that was all about MAGIC, not blaggards, so I can't play a villain, ever.  No fun...

5. In the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering, players draw mana (energy) from any of five different lands, resulting in different magical abilities. The Plains generate white magic (healing, order, protection, light), the Forests generate green magic (growth, strength, life, ferocity), the Islands generate blue magic (deceit, logic, illusion, knowledge, manipulation), the Mountains generate red magic (fury, passion, freedom, impulse, fire), and the Swamps generate black magic (death, ambition, darkness). From which lands do you generate your power, and which tend to rub you the wrong way?
Having to choose sides, it would be the Magic of the plains and the forests - of course, and I don't have any idea what this game is never having seen it, heard of it, or played it.  Sorry!

Thanks for participating, and have a terrific weekend!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
