Alignment:
Chaotic Good A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society. Chaotic good is the best alignment you can be because it combines a good heart with a free spirit. However, chaotic good can be a dangerous alignment when it disrupts the order of society and punishes those who do well for themselves.

Race:
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Class:
Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

Review: The Best of All Possible Worlds


The Best of All Possible Worlds
The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Wanted to like it better than I did. The exploration of the various communities reminded me of Hari Seldons exploration of Trantor in Prelude to Foundation. I did like the way they played out the romance aspect of the story. It was appropriate.


EDIT
A dear friend of mine is dealing with the impending loss of a favoured family member. In light of my inability to console, comfort or compensate, I feel I should revise my rating of this book. The timing, and the fact that if I'm honest with myself I have far too much in common with Dllenahkh, and in familiarizing myself with the origin of the title of the book.

So in that sense, that it was able to come back on me, within 72hrs of finishing it - somewhat grudgingly, suffering through syrupy romance with a cringe to get through the final third of it - and punch me in the feels places. I'll award it a nod and another star.


EDIT 2
Oh, and I just finished Bioshock Infinite - which could almost be considered a gamification of the Leibniz Essays on the Goodness of God, the Freedom of Man and the Origin of Evil
