I don't have a problem with Crusader Kings 2, or the Sims. I just wish that certain people wouldn't have a problem with that D<
I would make a kind and benevolent ruler, make no mistake.
Having the makes of a benevolent ruler doesn't mean you are one.
I just do my best to screw over any competitors without getting blamed. It gives a nice sense of accomplishment when you get their titles in a semi-legal way.
My dungeons is rather full though. I think I got at least one person who's been there for over 40 years.
Just give your lord the "insane" trait at the beginning. Then you won't be the cruel tyrant, but the happy, go lucky, MAD tyrant.
Plus it makes the game so much fun.

@zenat: Apparently you can Dontos Hollard your enemies in Inquisition. Or throw them in a dungeon. Or just execute them.
(Tranquility has been mentioned as an option by the developers, but there's some debate on the forums as to whether that's an option specific to one enemy, or something you can just make a habit of.)
@Deonis: I think the saddest moment is when you've been ruling for a while, check the dungeon, and find forgotten family members you put there years and years ago because they were uppity to your old ruler but love your new one. Um, oops.
@Griffen: It is... quite interesting. My lady kept tearing off her clothes and howling at the moon. Everything was a bit awkward during those episodes... but! She didn't cut the throats of her servants like other mad rulers have for me, so, clearly better.
@riverdaleswhiteflash: I am suddenly even more excited for Inquisition. ... I shall, of course, be a kind and benevolent inquisitor... but... you know... the second round IS my douchy round so...
@zenat: Kind and benevolent inquisitor seems oxymoronic.
@Norgrath: I shall ask questions very nicely? And maybe offer cake if they are forthcoming.
