Just a note.

I discarded alignment and all concepts thereof from my D&D games back in
about 1980. No one ever missed it. No one ever complained. And it didn't
even take a period of adjustment. Several people applauded the change.

That may say something about how important alignment is in an RPG.

 You see me now, a veteran of a thousand psychic wars. I've been 
 living on the edge so long, where the winds of limbo roar. And 
 I'm young enough to get involved, too old to see, all the scars 
 are on the inside; I'm not sure that there's anything left of me
