LG Human Warblade 20
Equipment: +5 mithral breastplate, Sword of Light
Quote from: Sword of Light
This +5 holy spell storing longsword grants its wielder the Spellfire Wielder feat as long as it is held. Unlike a normal spellfire wielder, you cannot use spellfire energy to heal.

EDIT: Super Genius Games's Vanguard class handles the Sword of Light pretty well (vanguard 19/warblade 1), but it casts spells - pick stuff he can do with his sword (like energy blasts and reach buffs) or which is subtle (like self-healing).

Guardians of Order made a Slayers d20 game back in the day.

Apparently Lina Inverse was Chaotic Good by their standards.  Now I haven't seen much of the show, but she came off as selfish in a manga I once read...

I've seen Lina given as an example of "how to play Chaotic Neutral right" before. :p Here's what TVTropes has to say:
Lina Inverse from The Slayers can be considered one of the best examples of this trope in a Dungeons and Dragons sense, being motivated almost entirely by self-interest and whim. While she has morals that do prevent her from going too far to the dark side, and even to come off as Chaotic Good once in a while, she is extremely selfish, greedy, bad-tempered, self-centered and impulsive, and even comes off as petty on occasions, as she often refuses to give any attention, never mind assistance, to people who don't offer her a reward of some kind. Notable stunts include refusing to a fight a dragon (which A: she set loose and B: happens to be tearing down the village she's in) unless the Village Headman agrees to pay her, only agreeing to help a girl whose village has been enslaved in one of the movies after recalling that said village is built near Elven ruins, saving a girl from a rampaging Golem in another movie and then harassing her for a reward, and demanding a new companion of his surrender a family heirloom of his to her after finding out it's a powerful magical weapon.

Maybe if you moved the definition of "good" to "how typical D&D players behave" :p

It's coming back to me now...

I think that alignment worked slightly differently in Slayers d20 in that Lawful Good characters could act impulsive and rude every once in a while.  They basically loosened the alignment straight-jacket a little.

They also had a Dragon PC class.
