    I would go with some Chaotic alignment. Either that, or it breaks the alignment scale altogether.

    I'd say Chaotic Evil. We already know that it is a "thing born of chaos", and considering that it's been described as "hateful", "malevolent", and as wanting "nothing more than destruction", it fits the bill well enough for me.

    Chaotic... Chaotic. Fairly sure that it is completely alien to "morality" in the traditional sense, but, as the cosmic equivalent tangled head phone cable, is most certainly an agent of Chaos, if not "Chaos" itself, as a concept.

    Chaotic Evil if we take Shojo's story as the truth.

    My personal speculation? True Neutral.

    I personally think chaotic neutral, as it attacked everything without much thought. True neutral if it lacks intelligence.

    It's alignment is Snarl. It's on a large enough scale that it doesn't operate on the same alignment meter as the rest of the universe, considering that it likely is a pocket universe of its own, so it gets to define its own rules.

    Unless there's a Neutral Evil snail I missed in my readthroughs, I think he meant Snarl.

    Yes, he's talking about the Heavily Templated Snail, which appeared in one Dragon magazine comic and as such is in Snips, Snails and Dragon Tales (SSDT also has a couple more comics with the Snail that didn't make it in to Dragon.).

    Even if it lacks intelligence, its magical nature means its alignment can be worked into its very being.

    I guess it all depends on how true Soon's version of the tale was. My guess is it's a choice between CN, TN, or CE.

    In that case, I'd say "Chaotic Evil."

    Note the line in the second last panel there: "growing more intelligent". It's definitely not mindless.

    That's a popular idea, but it's not really supported by published materials. Pretty much everything in the Elder Evils supplement has an alignment, as do most Far Realm monsters like the uvuudaum.

    Assuming everything we've been told about the Snarl's nature so far is true (a big assumption), I think it's clearly CE.

    Seriously though, if what Shojo and Redcloak said was true then Chaotic Evil seems like the best fit. Personally though, Chaotic Neutral would work.

    If it went from being an inanimate object to being as intelligent as a dog or something, that would be a growth in intelligence that would still leave it with a low enough INT to be True Neutral.
    Not that I necessarily believe this to be the case, but it's a thought that I felt needed saying.

    Evil, as it has an obvious murdering nature.
