Alignment is a term in Sword Coast Legends.
- Alignment is a roleplay mechanic and is an option selected to give flavor to your character's backstory. It is a reflection of your character's moral and personal attitudes. Alignment is a combination of 2 factors: one identifies morality and the other describes attitudes towards society and order. Thus, nine distinct alignments define the possible combinations. Each alignment is associated with one or more deities from the Forgotten Realms pantheon and deities may be associated with more than 1 alignment.
