Remember how I promised stuff would start happening soon? Here it is ...

I'm very interested by the problem of evil in fantasy. Demons and undead creatures are evil, sure. They have no families, they are apart from nature, and they seek to destroy all life. That's evil. Lord of the Rings orcs are also created by evil magic. They are all warriors, with no mothers, no children, no villages back home. The orcs want to kill the elves and that's evil, but when the elves kill the orcs we call that good. But D&D orcs are people who were raised evil. What does that mean to be raised evil? Orcs hate elves, and kill them on sight, but dwarves hate orcs and goblins, does that make them evil? If you can imagine those orcs (or medusas, or ettercaps) having a home, a village, and a mom, it's harder to think of them as evil, or of killing them as being good.
I also make RPGs! Check out my website:
