There are no SAN rolls in the Battletech RPG.

That said, my current players are so damned detached from their characters that they won't give me a decent backstory.

My character in DH was sent with a group to rescue some VIPs from a world under attack by tyranids; he saw them overtaking a hive when the shuttle descended. He vomitted profusely, passed out, and when he woke up he was near-catatonic and shaking for several hours.

If sees a baby eater, he will attack it, kill it and maim its body so it cannot be used as fodder for a necromancer out of sheer instinct.

Current characters? It depends.

oWoD: I play as a Gypsy with a Blood Purity of 4 and the Evil Eye. Being automatically mistrusted and/or hated by any non-Gypsies is completely normal and the character justifies just about everything with "Do unto others before they do unto you."

nWoD: I play as a defense attorney Hunter. By day, a perfectly normal charismatic figure that points out the faults in false testimonies and gets people out from under the chopping block when it looks like all hope is lost. By night, the character takes on the mantle of the prosecution and begins doling out the harshness. It's starting to look a lot like things are going to go downhill for me, due to a survivor that was left alive by by the goddamn minor-league baseball player character.

D&D 3.5: A pair of twins. One is a Neutral Good cleric of Pelor, the other is a Neutral Evil sorcerer. The first cannot, in good conscience, let his friends get hurt without healing them. The fact that they go out to find fights makes this difficult, but he's doing all right. Probably going to crack under the stress of maintaining seven people, not including himself. The second is trying to escape the clutches of Evil, but has difficulties due to the fact that he has no empathy.

GURPS: A Russian magician with incredible toughness, from a low tech level world. Despite the obvious inspiration, I try to play him as a good guy. This is met with varying levels of success, due to the fact that the GM enjoys saying, "DUDE, AREN'T YOU RASPUTIN?! GUYS, LOOK, IT'S RASPUTIN!" I'm thinking it's going to end with a horrifically ham-fisted series of events wherein my character is driven half-mad by a vision of the Virgin Mary and ends up taking the name to play his role in history.

Theres several ways to handle this: The not so obvious and enlightened way is to simply accept what happens and what will happen but its your duty to try and prevent (good). Apathy mixed with realism is another way to simply shrug off what happens (neutral). Another way is a character is simply too demented about what he does or what happens (AKA zealotry or generally evil).

In the long run though for characters who don't have any of these traits the thoughts about what they have done will haunt them. If they internalize these thoughts in turns into a depression which then leads to several psychological conditions including being suicidal. How a fucked up instance happens and how their first fucked up instance happened generally defines them.

If I must personally kill a million of the forces of the Other to protect a thousand, one hundred, or just one of us. I'll do it. Hell, If I must personally kill a thousand of our people to protect a thousand and _one_, I'll do it. And I'll do it gladly, because it is my duty, my right and my will.

>How do your characters deal with the fucked up shit they do, /tg/?

The beauty of it is that most of the players are conveniently and entirely oblivious to horrors they themselves cause.

For example, a group of Paladins was sent by their Church (which is comprised of guys greedier and worse than the previous ones) to this small village to find and capture one little girl accused of active witchcraft (a very rudimentary plot, but it serves it's function). They get to the village and it turns out that the villagers actually grew to like the little girl (in an interesting subversion of the usual trope) and won't hand her over just because "some tall hats say so". When they get threatened by the Paladins even the girl herself comes out and warns them to leave or she won't be responsible for what she does in order to protect her fellow villagers. What happened? Basically, every villager got slaughtered for even daring to get in Paladin's way and the little girl was gagged and had her eyes burned out as a precaution. Mission accomplished....BUT WE'RE STILL HEROES, RIGHT?

It's the whole Needs of the Many syndrome there. The witch can prove to be a far greater threat to the Church then any possibly bad rep from wiping out a village. Sure they probably felt bad about it, but being a Pallie means you do what has to be done, even if it means innocent blood is shed. Lawful Good isn't "We must not harm the innocents." Lawful Good is "They have 80+ hostages and the really nasty chemical weapon which can kill tens of thousands if not more trapped on Alcatraz. We're bombing the the island back into the ocean, may god have mercy on us all."

players hardly understand the "evil, corrupt, torturous" acts they try their hardest to role play, let alone how to determine what affect said actions would have on their character. it's easy to say "my evil character kills babies." its likewise to easy to assume "now he has nightmares omg poor tortured soul." its easier still to say "my character boils in rage as he helplessly watches his friends burn alive," because this has inevitable and forgivable connotations. now he has nightmares and now he's a TRAGIC tortured soul.

Those are just bad players.
Most players don't really immerse themselves in the story, see npc as objects and so manslaughter is always legit if it gets you xp.
Also burning out a little girl eyes just in case sounds awesome to them.

Actual LG paladins would have questioned themselves, either managed to capture the girl or convince her to come with them without harming anyone or go back to their leaders emptyhanded and report the situation, eventually they would discover that the leaders are in fact corrupt and proced to depose them instead.
The "your bishop is actually evil" is really the most common paladin trope after "innocents die, paladin fall".

Create secondary personality that takes control when the first one cannot handle it. The first personality is kind and good. The second personality is cold, machine-like and uncaring. Total psychopath. And it's harder every time for the first personality to reassert control.

Of the two characters (one in 3.5E and one in 4E) I'm currently playing, one (a Sorc in 3.5E) is a scion of an adventuring family and simply views it as an unfortunate consequence of his profession - that there are bad people and he must kill them, for if he doesn't, who will?

The second, a fighter, does favor a nice, civilized society. He also knows that such is a pipe dream and loves to fight, so he revels in slaying the 'wicked' who would threaten innocents. He likes the violence and struggle of it. The fight, the hunt and kill.

He knows it's fucked up. But it's for a good cause - even time he rips someone's jaw out to stab into another foe's eye socket, he's building a better world.

Well maybe not quite that, but they're the worst that humanity has to offer. Or, well, you know, ACTUAL monsters...

I had (group disbanded) a great wizard who basically hailed from a culture that was basically the Clans from Battletech. Magic heavy, highly militaristic, and a meritocracy. Anyway, he intellectually knows it's wrong to cause death, and he hesitates to do more damage than necessary, but at the same time, he doesn't flinch when diplomacy fails. On the one hand, he is sure of the fact that fighting is his destiny. On the other, pangs of guilt are starting to get to him, as his closeness with the shiny paladin (we joked about homoerotic overtones) affected his morals. Hell, just before the group scattered, I had this great speech written up for the hell of it.

“Imagine if your sole purpose in life was to run. Run free and long, until the horizon disappeared... Mine is war. I was born for war, I was bred for war, I was made for war. It is in my blood and in my soul to cause destruction and death; I have been denied that purpose.”

My character deals with these such things easily.

"I am not like you. You kill these creatures because they're in your way, or it makes you look good, or you just think it's fun.

...I do not. I kill them because they are evil. I fight, I bleed, and inevitably I will die to protect that which is good in this world.

I am not a man. I am a bulwark against Evil. I am a light in the dark. I am a Paladin. This is what I do. Any further questions?"

Conversation between a Human Paladin and a Dwarven Fighter (Chaotic Good as far as I could tell.)

Said Paladin fell in battle after suffering a massive damage attack (which he survived). BBEG proceeded to come forward to take my head off (I'd pissed him off royally by killing his wizard with a lot of luck and awe inspiring good dice rolls) I got one attack in, not much damage but it gave the rogue an opportunity for a sneak attack on the BBEG which dropped him low enough for the Dwarf to take him down the rest of the way.

DM fluffed the campaign as over after the enemy was slain. DM and Dwarfy-Fighter-Dude talked it out for a while, and the epilogue of the adventure explained that the Dwarf in question was inspired by what his Paladin friend (This, from a Dwarf who was constantly angry, bitter about having to deal with "Damned skinny goody goodies" and "stupid pointy-ears" all the time, and not willing to trust anybody who wasn't a dwarf.) that he carried the blade out of there, scorched, covered in gore, and possibly useless to the last Temple the Paladin had prayed at.

DM added more "Dawww..." to this story by saying that, "As (Not naming names) handed the blade over to the Cleric of (Guess what God, I'm not revealing more), a voice whispered through the air, "Thank you..."

Next game, we find a talking bastard sword that whispers advice about fighting evil things, is particularly potent against undead/demons, and is blackened slightly around the slashing edge on one side.

By accepting that all they do is bring misery to the world and all they receive is misery in turn. And thus accept the only being that will grant them respite from this cruel and uncaring world.

My character in DH tends to not even justify his actions - What he does is downright horrid at times, and he's aware of it. He wants out, bad.

There is no such thing as enemy too terrifying to face. There is just temporal shortage of Vodka.

By blaming all of the failures of humanity and the suffering that exists on the weakness of those who strive to be machines, without undergoing any holy rites. In their ignorance they claim to be better than machines, yet they are the ones that suffer, not him. He no longer suffers for he no longer feels their pain, he is cold. He is logic. He is Adeptus Mechanicus.

They were children, they would have become murders, they were children. I take full responsibility, not all lives are of equal value. I killed them.

Doesn't mean you must kill them, punishment can come in many forms; you could sanction the villain to make soup for homeless for the next 10 years, and that would be a fitting punishment.

Both wrong. The paladin is a killer, a warrior, he goes out and smites evil. He doesn't minister to it.

OTOH, if the evil guy surrenders, a paladin won't kill an unarmed, kneeling man; that would be blatantly dishonourable. He might still take him back to face trial and hanging, but he would either help to absolve him of his sins and or convert him or provide him with a priest to do so, whether he hangs or not - his spirit has the same need of salvation either way, and is more important.

Destroying evil includes converting it into good.

I don't play in modern settings, ergo my characters don't ascribe to a modern morality structure but rather a psudo-medieval one. Mostly I play good/neutral characters so I try to not commit war crimes or massacre the innocent en masse.

One character doesn't do much in the way of terrible things. He's planning on murdering a man as revenge for the death of his brother, but he doesn't like to think about that. Once or twice he's done questionable things (like threatening a girl at sword-point), and felt bad about it. He's sort of on the edge of snapping, though, because he's had a long string of failures. There's about a 50/50 chance of him committing suicide or going on a homicidal rampage if that happens.

Another one is sort of a psychopath. She enjoys hurting other people just a little bit, although she does have her boundaries. If the thought's ever crossed her mind that what she's doing is wrong, her response would be "Yeah, who gives a shit?"

My own characters tend to chalk it up to their naivite and I play it for laughs.

One of my player's characters tend to be really paranoid and come up with stupid excuses for killing off important, potentially information bearing NPCs when given the chance to spare their lives.

Another one of my players chalks it up to her shaking faith in her deity.

Another of my players chalk it up to his naivete regarding the material plane, seeing as how he grew up a half elemental in the elemental chaos.

My last player blames it on shut the fuck up.
