    So basically a "heroic darkworker" is just a chaotic good character? Like I said, watered down alignment system.

    it's not a direct correlation, but they certainly are similar. darkworker/lightworker is about motivation. life's is a battle. not polarizing to either a lightworker or a darkworker is like switching back and forth fighting for 2 opposing armies

    Some people choose to do absolutely nothing in particular, consider work only a necessary evil, don't have either altruistic motivations or particularly selfish, and only make choices when a situation demands it. And then they die in old age.. or wake up one morning, decide they want to go to an airshow, and then get chopped in half by a crashing P-51.

    In fact, this is a great deal of the human race. Insignificant goals, insignificant lives, and for the most part, a senseless death.

    To make us think we all live in an epic anime story.

    Which would be kind of cool, but... today I'm a cynic.

    that's exactly my point. most people live pathetic lives because they either lack motivation or don't focus their motivation on 1 thing. all of the great achievers of the human race were either in it for the better of humanity or for themselves, with clear priorities as to which was more important

    Sometimes pathetic lives aren't even our choice. Some people are born deformed, retarded, depressed, extremely poor, etc.. Some lose their professions and livelihood.. and even just get violently killed..for no reason whatsoever. Great achievers, on the level you're talking about, are a huge exception to the rule - and even then, few are remembered anyways. And the ones that are remembered get their history and contribution distorted. You mention MLK Jr. - but hardly anyone actually reads about him. And relatively few care to listen to the ones who do. People would rather just claim his name for whatever random cause of their own. As time goes on, it gets even more ridiculous - look at Thomas Jefferson, for example. He's every patriotic American's best friend. Or better yet, Jesus of Nazareth.

    I should probably offer something positive here, but I'm not sure what atm.

    Why, then, do you not theorize yourself into the role of a royal prince? Clearly that would motivate the hell out of you.
