At work, we have an internal chat system. Think Slack but built into our library software. Since we're all working a hybrid schedule, this is the best way for us to stay together as a team. Our chat is a great place for water cooler stuff and to share things we should all know. Plus, it's a way for us to get into shenanigans of random conversations.
This week, we somehow fell into discussing Dungeons & Dragons alignment of librarians. I just cannot picture an evil librarian. We're all too eager to share things and do good.
But our conversation about what an evil librarian would do went as follows:
I can't help but think, however, that there would still be some good or lawful traits in such a character. Sure they are chaotic evil, but I bet their own spell books and potions are clearly labeled and highly organized. The hijinks schedule of their demons is probably color coded and based on strengths. This librarian probably keeps statistics to see which evil deeds performed best.
I am now obsessed with the idea of creating a D&D character that is a chaotic evil librarian. Make them a bard and they'd probably be the worst character ever devised.
What's your alignment?
