I don't know what to say. I'm not even exaggerating.
Previously menitoned Jonas and my fellow artist are playing a pair of identical twins, cousins to Important People and lesser lords themselves. It was supposed to be their first mission, to let them get a feel of things. It ended with infanticide and cutting off a man's hand.
Somehow I can only say I'm not suprised at this outcome as it is just that: Not a suprise outcome.
I seen worse, I have seen people have killed an old lady with a magical makeshift Saw after putting her to sleep hitting her with a few arrows all before she could attack
Sounds like when I played the Game of Thrones 2012 RPG. Even though I think the story is great, the combat ended up disgruntling me so much that I almost turned Mors and Alester in to even bigger murderous sociopaths than they were before.
Wow, me, I can't even bring myself to forge claims or assassinate people in crusader kings II and even when I played Balder's Gate II and decided to not play a Paladin or mage and instead play a assassin, my assassin ended up Lawful Good.
What exactly caused this? (And why am I dumb enough to ask)?
@Norgrath: Um, a boy came and begged the lords for help because his mother had just given birth to a seventh son, and since his father was also a seventh son people were convinced the baby would be a werewolf or an abomination or... just generally bad news. Our heroes arrive at the scene, conclude that well... there is a mob. The child is a half-elf (aka lowest of the low). The child is also a mage but that is about all they can conclude. And then uh... suggestions on how to deal with the situation went back and forth, and my dear co-artist decided that the mob must be appeased.
@ted the saiyanfox: Greeting and salutations, but she was their enemy. :-D But he has 4 wisdom points, so it's technically proper roleplaying, no?
@Pepsik: but she also haven't attacked and was going to run away, so now their DM is giving them crap for it.
@ted the saiyanfox: Well she was going to attack, I mean she was part of the group not some bystander. And the fact she was old meant she was doing it for a while now, who knows how many people she killed working for the bad guys. And she was running away instead of facing justice or pleading for mercy, not helping her case. :-)
