Corruption question

Post by Gsedg on Wed Oct 10, 2018 9:11 am

Here's something I'm wondering--and there's a lot of story to it, but in the interest of time, I'll just get to the guts of it.
If the adventurers capture a criminal--who is a dwarf, but, yes, like Grima or a few other LOTR characters, he has been deeply corrupted--would the adventurers gain corruption/shadow/etc. if they kill him after capture? Combat is done--the fighting is over. What if they don't kill him but send him to a likely death? (Here, you're disarmed and sent back into the spider-filled woods...)

Player's argument--during these sorts of times, criminals were usually just executed. So, it wouldn't be beyond normal behavior.
Loremaster's (that's me) response--during these times, criminals were usually brought to an authority figure who then executed, imprisoned, or exiled. And, in LOTR, I can't think of times when someone was killed outright after being caught.

and thanks.

I would give out shadow points any time PC's kill someone outside of combat, especially when they could show mercy. Leaving the character to die might also give shadow points, depending on the situation. It is up to the GM to decide, but it is clear that killing and generally being cruel give players shadow.
