Neutral is an alignment in ADOM. Neutral characters are generally seen as not being swayed towards either order or chaos.

The PC[]

Initial neutrality[]

Humans, Gray Elves, GnomesDrakelings, Mist Elves and Ratlings begin the game neutral, unless affected by class (playing as a Healer, Necromancer or Chaos Knight) or star sign. Druids of any race always start the game neutrally aligned.

Acts of Balance[]

Acts of balance draw the PC's alignment towards N=; performing such will result in an alignment boost if alignment is below 0, or an alignment drop if it is above 0. Paragons of Order need to beware of the latter. Thus far, few acts of balance are known to exist.

Social standing[]

Neutral PCs suffer from very little prejudice in Ancardia. They are only shunned by the demented ratling and Gaab'Baay — who will only do business with chaotic PCs.

Relationship with deities[]

Neutral PCs are not allowed to sacrifice neutral monsters to their deities. Likewise, neutral NPCs cannot sacrifice the PC to theirs.


All natural creatures are neutral, as well as some humanoid monsters.

Notable neutral NPCs in Ancardia are Guth'Alak and the ratling rebel. Fulfillment of either of their wishes is an act of balance.
