Law Guide
"Law (or Lawful) is the belief that everything should follow an order, and that obeying rules is the natural way of life. Lawful creatures will try to tell the truth, obey laws, and care about all living things. Lawful characters try to keep their promises. They will try to obey laws as long as such laws are fair and just."
"If a choice must be made between the benefit of a group or an individual, a Lawful character will usually choose the group. Sometimes individual freedoms must be given up for the good of the group. Lawful characters and monsters often act in predictable ways. Lawful behavior is usually the same as behavior that could be called good."[1]

Below is a detailed guide of what The Nameless One can say and do in order to become Lawful.

General GuidelinesEdit

In order to become Lawful, The Nameless One should:

  • Tell the Truth
  • Never Lie
  • Never break a Vow
  • Not join the Anarchists or the Xaositects
  • Not taunt Morte or have conversations with skeletons, zombies or bark at madmen.

Note: The values for alignment are hidden in Planescape: Torment. Qwinn's Tweak Pack has a component called the Scale of Souls, which, if installed, allows the player to view alignment values. The Nameless One starts the game with a "Good" and "Law" rating of 0, signifying neutrality. Chaotic acts subtract from the "Law" value, and when the rating reaches -21, the alignment changes to Chaotic; when it reaches 15, the alignment switches to Lawful.[2]
