TOPIC: Baby Killers??

Baby Killers?? 10 years 1 month ago #1

Is it just me or has all the newly discovered lore information taken the Smoak encounter to a disturbing place?  I had been looking forward to trying to kill the evil Smoak and raiding his treasure hoard.  Now it seems we are to kill a mother trying to protect her egg.  A mother who was brought to this plane unwillingly.<br /><br />I may just walk in and  say "Hi" to Mom and let her fry me rather than become a baby killer.

Ah the age old question of morality in the DnD type world. To slay or not to slay that is the question.<br />Thankfully there is a wonderous ability to determine right and wrong called detect evil. If they are evil it is perfectly good to slay the evil by whatever maner needed.
Sweet a combat room, we won't take damage!

Dragons, color coded for your ethical convenience.<br /><br />

To be less glib, I too am made unsure by this development.  Yes, Red Dragons are 'Always Chaotic Evil', and 99.999% of them are just like bears.  But does that really make it OK to kill a baby dragon that has committed no evil acts (yet)?  Can't we just find a Helm of Alignment Change, and drop it over the egg?<br /><br />OK, maybe that wasn't less glib...

<br /><br />Actually Smoak has committed many evil acts.<br />First she attacked and killed hundreds of elves (probably including babies) with her horde and has taken over the town of gilhaven.  Second, she defiled the elven temple of Pelor and made it her lair (probably killing the priests in the process), she has consorted with dark pacts (if you believe a Marilith is her pet).  She's evil through and through.<br />

<br /><br />Smoak is, but the egg hasn't done anything.  I'm not saying mommy doesn't need to bite the dust, just that it might not be right to kill the egg, or even hold it hostage.

<br /><br />Well - we can always kill Smoak, and then bring the egg home and raise it as our very own pet Red Dragon.  I'd like a pet Red Dragon  =)

But hatching the egg brings to mind the scene from Jurassic Park:<br />"What species is this? You bred Raptors?"<br /><br />Insert "Red Dragons" for "Velociraptors"<br /><br />
