During the story your character will get special skills that vary according to your alignment.

Asides from that, the alignment of your companions also determines if they get happy or angry with your decisions. If you get a very heroic reputation, evil characters will ditch your party, and vice-versa.

That pretty much covers it but also be aware of your individual party members alignment as there will be infighting with certain characters which can lead to them attacking each other.

Also as an FYI there are certain items in each game that are restricted by alignment.

Robes of the evil archmage- can only be worn by evil characters.

Carsomyr - cannot be used by evil characters.

Theres even a helmet in the first game that can reverse alignment of the person wearing it.
Carsomyr is class restricted to Paladins.

Without their dreams men would have fallen upon and devoured one another long ago, and yet every dream is an illusion, and every illusion is a lie.

Lawful good paladins, specifically.

Well, Lawful Good is the only alignment allowed for Paladins.

A chaotic evil Blackguard with the helm of opposite alignment can use it.

Keep forgetting about Blackguard.
