Virtue & Vice
One word that describes something good about you, the other something not so good.
Kind / Ego-centric
Generous / Sarcastic
Punctual / Murderous

No, I think I will have it goal focused, as in, "What is the party trying to accomplish?"
Rescuing the Princess
Putting the restless soul at peace.
Closing the gaping portal to the Spirit plane.
