Welcome to “Inside the Character Studio” please give a warm welcome to our host; Oliver Clozeoff!
Ladies and gentlemen please, would ya bring yer attention to me. Welcome to the show, please come inside! Today we will continue our fascinating look into the life and mind of Zander Bearach, on: “Inside the Characters Studio”. I am your host Oliver Clozeoff, with only 6 days left of our show lets not waste any time and get right to it!
Six days! Woo!
Ya seem to get happier and happier the closer we are to finishing the challenge lad.
Uh yeah. DUH!
Well, it is good to see ya smiling. I do apologize for yesterday with Jim though, I have been assured it won’t happen again.
Jim Brisk lad.
Oh, the crazy guy that went batshit nuts after his question. No worries.
*laughs* Okay then boyo, let’s get started.
It’s your show.
Now Zander mi’boy, earlier today we had ya fill out an online questionnaire, but didn’t let ya see the results. Are ya curious to find out?
Nope. Not really.
No? Why not lad?
I don’t really need a label to know who I am. “I am what I am and that is all that I am!” so sayeth the great prophet Popeye the sailor man…toot-toot!
*snicker* That is a good way to look at things but let’s just see what the results of the online questionnaire says and see if ya agree with it or not.
Let’s see here. It says here that, Based on yer answers to the quiz, yer most likely alignment is Neutral.
Don’t ya wanna know what that means?
I know the definition of Neutral, thanks.
It is not a definition thing lad, It is more along the lines of what yer mental state is when ya make decisions.
So ya really don’t wanna know?
*sigh* You just want to read what that thing says about me, don‘t you?
Aye, guilty as charged.
You know your geek is showing.
Fine go ahead and read it.
Thank ya lad.
A neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He or she doesn’t feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most neutrality is a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a person thinks of good as better than evil. After all, they would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, they are not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, the most balanced road in the long run. The common phrase for neutral is “true neutral.” Neutral is the best alignment ya can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion.

Player’s Handbook, Chapter 6
So basically it is saying I don’t care. Well, that’s a crock of shit!
So…ya don’t agree?
Do I agree that I don’t care? Yes, I don’t agree. Why would I agree with that? it’s a horrible thing to accuse me of.
Well, lad, I have to say I don’t agree or disagree with the quiz. Ya are neutral to some extent on a lot of things but I also know ya have yer convictions. Ya just have to remember it is an online quiz meant for fun. If ya like ya can take it again later.
Well, if anyone in our audience would like to take the same quiz Zander did ya can find it at http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/dnd/20001222b
Now let’s move on and get some audience questions answered, shall we?
Let’s see. Hows about the gentleman in the “I ate it for Alchemical purposes I swear!” T-shirt. Ya have a question for Zander?
Yes, what do you think are some of your best anger management or temper-controlling skills?
Fair question. Breathing. Controlling your breath can slow down your heart rate and your thought process. I use breath control to keep a clear head and a clear head is one that can’t be clouded by anger. Thank you for your question.
I hope that answers yer question sir. We have time for more questions.
Okay then let’s get to it.
Okay, hows about the lass with the “All your souls are belong to me!” shirt on. What is yer question lass?
I would like to know, is there anything you do, that you prefer to do alone?
Lad, stop trying to make the lass blush and answer her question.
Okay, I tend to prefer to be alone with my thoughts when I have a lot on my mind. Does that count?
Aye lad that counts. Thank ya lass for yer question. Unfortunately, that is all the time we have for today. I hope ya will join us again tomorrow when we carry on with our final days of the 28 Days of Character Development, where we will have another good time with Zander, right here on “Inside the Characters Studio”. I am yer host Oliver Clozeoff saying, “Be good, if ya can’t be good, be naughty, but be good at it.” Good night everybody!
