Much has been made of these newfanged “morality” style quests. Rohan, for instance, railed long and hard against them, and more recently, little “death by fire” gnomey has had some… issues with the whole deal.
My question is this: where and how, precisely, does the whole idea of “morals” translate to the game?
The real me would probably think twice (or three or four times) before killing another person, would never intentionally torture someone, and most certainly wouldn’t mindlessly slaughter hundreds of annoying things (as much as the real me would like to).
The in game me, the Euripedes, the terrifying mage inside me, wouldn’t hesitate to do any of those things.
Sentence a tribe of Furbolg to death? Sure thing!
Extinguish the leaders of the Scarlet Monastery? Done and done!
Slaughter dozens of alliance children? FOR THE HORDE!
Kill fifty elves on a whim? It’ll be fun! (more…)
