Sometimes it’s obvious who’s right and who’s wrong. The hero is kind and good, while the villain is cruel and evil. But what if that’s not the case? What happens when morality isn’t black and white but rather a shade of gray? That’s what we’re talking about this week. Gray morality is very popular among storytellers, but it has some serious pitfalls. After all, if no one is good or evil, do we even care who wins? Why don’t the characters just compromise? We’ll discuss ways to avoid this problem, plus another look at the weird idea that there should be a balance between good and evil.
