Original anachronisms d100

Some weird stuff here but alignment oath lists are handy

Law is more strange than people think. At its worse law is about turning the universe into a state of eternal stasis at it's best it is about peace and unity. Everything in between is possible. Many lawful cults exist and might mix with lawful evil or lawful good.  Some might think lawful sects actions are good but their altruism is just a mechanism not a truly felt conviction like with good people. Still it is better than being mugged in the street every day.

Some come with limited ammo which is hard to find most 1d3 clips total
More extreme bizarre, debilitating freak powers with mostly clear biomechanical quality

d12 Lawful Philosophies

1 Brotherhood of Eternal Stasis - time and the increasing disorder of the universe must be stopped by freezing the universe into a condition of eternal stasis. Only killing time can save the cosmos. Everyone is a disgusting decaying prison of imperfect matter
2 The Eternal Order - chaos is part of the cosmos and in breaking the universe into simpler components it is actually a servant of order. The cosmos eternally is destroyed and reborn.They are one of the most tolerant of others flaws and work with others
3 Scions of the Spirit - matter is imperfect, ony perfection in the spiritual world counts. You must prepare yourself to be enlightened and move onto the next level. Flesh is a prison and the gods don't care. Tend to be self tormenting and indifferent to suffering, anti sex and desire. Practice starvation and meditation
4 Knights of Order - discipline and will force are the answer to controlling your fate and you must help others even against their will. Its for their own good. Lesser beings don't see the cosmic picture and Law is the best deal in the long run. Mighty heroes can fight the beasts that gnaw on the cosmos and help prolong existence. They like to fight and even dominate others on their cosmic crusade
5 Scions of the Archons - serve the daemons of law the archons who operate the universe and do it impartially and fairly. At times injustice succeeds when order is weak. The scions wander to spread justice. The Archons aid the worthy with gifts and powers to help their cause and they take them if their agents become unworthy
6 Champions of Law - fight for cosmic law and directly travel to battle chaos at its frontline. The greater the incursion the more serious and worthy a enemy. When all is cleansed they find another. Planar travel is used when the cosmic axis swings back to law and the eternal struggle continues. Philosophising is less important than action
7 Heroes of Utopia - are struggling to make the world a better place and fight for order free from random violence. They gather to discus where their operations are needed and travel to destroy crime and banditry, or attack a unjust regimes. They might be good to some but really they are social engineers and believe helping all to live peaceful scholarly lives is close to their ambitions to help human kind experience the great final release of law
8 Lords of the Unity - all gods are just part of the unity and it is best to follow it's will directly without gods or the filters of local culture. The great all knowing one is all powerful but not as all compassionate as people might hope or expect. They preach of the all mighty one is love and operate charities to reach the common folk as well as persons of other walks of life. Sometimes the zealously war against any threats to the unity like other beliefs
9 Princess of the Universe - seek immortality and to battle forever against chaos. Most seek gifts from archons or lawful beings. They especially fight chaos immortals. Most followers practice combat and study alchemy
10 The Lords of Creation - time unfolding is the purpose of law and Law is the arrow of time. Some try to defy this especially chaos and they must be destroyed. Some try to change time or fate and they too must be destroyed. Everything has it's place and moment all is as it should be
11 Followers of the Presence - the presence is the cosmic god head and it conceals itself from us. Followers seek to commune with their strange spirit beyond the veil of mind or matter. Mostly perform rituals some are using experimental magical and other procedures to understand the presence and its unseen purpose
12 The Celestial Order - the great gods in the celestial city maintain the universe. The gods and devils have their place in the cosmic scheme but chaos demon invasions and foul gods using chaos are the enemies of law. The Order utilise advanced technology and dwell in the heavens watching for incursions of evil. Their technology is powered by magic and will power or sentient manna crystals. They communicate with the future to plan their campaigns and invention research by using bound time elementals. They abuse some of the universes powers but take care to justify their actions with their war on chaos
