I simply tend to prefer not being evil, whatever that means in any fantasy setting. So if the option is between being a hero or an anti-hero, I'm more likely to choose the latter while still appreciating the former.

Yeah, I mean...I wouldn't say I'm evil, but I can rationalize a lot as not evil. Like most of the time in VTM I don't feel I'm being evil despite being a vampire. There are lines that can be crossed that make one evil.

I guess in a fantasy I like being a defender more, like yeah I don't want to start fights. So when a race is expansionist despite not being that 'evil' I look down on them. While a defensive race that has some 'evil' traits I admire. Like the Romulan Star Empire in Trek.

I always choose the undead or demonic faction if I have the option. Like in WC3 where I love the Scourge/Forsaken campaigns the most, and in Dawn of War where I played the Chaos faction first.

Heh I can understand that. In every d20 game I have to shoehorn being a vampire in if I can get away with it. Luckily elves are basically the same thing if the DM doesn't like it. After that I love Knight Templar religious nuts. *cough* Imperium *cough*

I always like being lawful good. It doesn't mean I won't fight for my family or my society if I have to.

I'm always fluctuating between Neutral good and chaotic good.

Paladins and their ilk, vampires and demons are my preferred factions.

If one of them sucks in a franchise I can just root for one of the others.

HEh, sadly I already tried the Blood Elves (who I see as WoW's vampires) and cannot stand the rest of the Horde. <.> ...or their models. So I'm just stuck hoping they don't fuck up paladins.
