Tales of Tolgard
Evil, in terms of alignment, is a tendency of a person or creature to commit evil acts. Evil races and monsters debase or destroy innocent life, whether for fun or profit. Evil implies hurting, oppressing, and potentially killing others. Some evil creatures simply have no compassion and kill, not for food or defense, but for the satisfaction of their nefarious and baser urges. Others actively pursue evil, killing for sport or as a duty to an evil deity or master.
Evil is one extreme on the good/evil axis.
