But to keep this thread going: if you kill my family, that character is now killing him or herself. No vows for vengeance, nothing. Off with their own head. I can't have a family, you can't have a character you built plot-important shit around. And if I'm allowed a new cahracter, this one is an emotionless jerk who's only in it for the money with no background and if give him one he's not going by it nor is he caring if you pull anything from it into it.

>> No.29228031

A lot of people give the impression they consider a DM killing off a character's family to be a dick move.

What if the bad guy goes after your family and you have a fair sporting chance to stop him? Like, say he kidnaps Tordrek's imouto, and that's your next plot hook, that Tordrek's imouto has been kidnapped and is being held in the tower of gratuitous evil, would you get mad about that?

>> No.29228138


Generally you can sort "DM goes after the family" into two categories:

"DM goes after the family to reinforce their value and deepen the relationship between the PC and the family." The plotline you suggested, for example.

"DM goes after the family for cheap shock value and in hopes of provoking drama without having to do any effort or capable writing." The scenario implied by OP.

As a DM, I would make it quite clear to my players OOCly that this will all end with no hard feelings if they don't do anything incredibly stupid.

Eg: If they blow up the BBEG's tower, when said imouto was in that tower... well that's all that little girl wrote.

I say this because I have had players do incredibly stupid things, and ruin plots that could have otherwise been excellent for character development.

>> No.29229620

I really don't get this.

You're running around, making no effort to conceal your identity. You are GORZAK CUNTPUNCHER, HERO, SLAYER OF WENCHES AND FUCKER OF BEASTS. At least, that's the case with most adventuring parties. In that case, you really only have yourself to blame if your relatives bite it. There's a reason super heroes wear their masks, it isn't just to look cool.

Even if you take pains to conceal your true identity, if you're fighting a well organized enemy, chances are they'll be able to dig up intel on you some how. You'd have to do a VERY good job of covering your tracks.

I'm not saying that the DM should just execute family members for dramatic tension, but to say that it's completely out of hand to have family members die is just as silly. It's simply at the opposite side of the spectrum. If you're fighting some vast conspiracy, some megalomaniacal BBEG, somebody with enough intelligence and resources to shake the world, it's only natural that they'd be able to use their resources to figure out who they're fighting, and then they'd use that information to try and get that person by the balls. The easiest way is family.

My characters will generally make an effort to cover their tracks, but depending on their outlooks, they either accepted death in the family as a possibility, an inevitability, or they simply can never come to terms with it, but it won't stop them from doing what is right.

I swear to fucking God mate. Every single game, be it PnP, on some forum, or something in between, every single one of you motherfuckers that are "evil" or what not try to pull some shit like rape or kill my goddamn NPC sister and/or family if I make one.

If not for the fucking fact you sons of bitches couldn't do it properly 99% of the time, I wouldn't be so mad. The only credible threat I ever gotten from anybody trying to use family as a leverage was from some fucked up Doctor in game in the Star Wars universe,that had me either go infect an entire chapter of the Jedi Order with the space-age bubonic plague, with me as the host, or have my sister and father hunted by him, captured, father killed and turned into a zombie, while the girl would serve as his guinea pig for diseases and whatnot for several years, until she reached the age of 13-15 and was old enough to get pregnant from getting raped by his zombies/rancors/other assorted monstrosities so he can further advance the scientific comunity.

To keep it short, I had a one off deal with the Doctor. He was working under the Sith, I under the Jedi. Fate led me to need his assistance, so I broke a deal. I will offer him a highly force sensitive Jedi to use for his experiments, in return, he would construct me a bioscanner that would be able to detect any individuals with midichloridians in a several mile long radius. The Jedi I was offering was supposed to be a set up to get a reading on where his main laboratory was, raid the ever loving shit out of it, burn it to the ground, and either capture or kill the Doctor.

Somehow, he found out. Next thing I know, I find myself on Dantooine as it is hit by the space bubonic plague, everything afflicted by it dying in a matter of days. I got infected, quarantine was up and there was no way to get the fuck out of dodge. Talks of liquidating the planet were up in the air. Then suddenly the mad fuck calls me out and asks for a 1 on 1 meeting.

Find him in a deserted hovel, sitting on a rocking chair admits a pile of corpses as he taking a nap. Failed to sneak kill by getting discovered, convince to not shoot him in the face afterwards and listen to him. Guy offered me a bottle of whiskey, took it because, fuck it, I'm already dead. Shit apparently held the antidote and I downed that motherfucker while he was explaining his terms.

He had another virus, another blackwing strain that he improved to kill in under an hour. I would either act as the host of the virus, immune to it's effects myself, and go on Naboo, infect the entire city, the royal family, and approximately 80% of the Jedi Order, or the Doc would unleash the virus on Coruscant, but not before capturing my family.

It really ain't nothing that amazing in my opinion, just The Good Doctor being one step ahead of me at all times and getting rused like a motherfucker OOC, but at the time, when he kept making all his reveals and shit, I was fucking terrified.

No, I'm stuck being his bitch. Thankfully, the Sith are on the verge of another civil war. On one side, you got the Sith Council, placed into power by an allied faction of the Sith and does nothing all day but weaken the faction on the galactic stage and make them the laughing stock of the world.

On the other, you got Muad Dib, a crazy as fuck pyromaniac that I am proud to have shared several songs and burned down taverns with, and one of the main reasons the Sith aren't a complete pushover, unlike the Jedi. Until, that is, he launched a raid on Naboo, destroyed 3/4 of Theed through blowing up the plasma refineries, destroyed the entire royal palace and more than likely killed the royal family, alongside destorying the Jedi HQ in the city and almost having me killed several times in a single day, one instance involving one of his men fucking suicide dive bombing the Jedi Spires in an attempt to kill me and several other Masters.

The Doctor, as I mentioned, works for the Sith but has no real loyalty towards them. Whoever funds his projects earns his services basically. So now here I am, stuck as the Doctor's bitch, while he is working for the guy I fucking loathe from an IC perspective, as they try to diplomatically take control over the Sith and then have me usurp control over the Jedi Factions and unite in some God forsaken alliance to take out the Rebellion and the other darkside faction that put the Sith Council into power.

Also, to try and incite a Mandalorian Civil War so that we can sing Confederate Songs while watching the Mando's kill themselves only for us to control indirectly.

I have a weird relationship with Muad now that I think about it. Could almost call it Tsundere, really.

The DM's reasoning was my character didn't seem 'invested' in stopping the BBEG as my character was a mercenary who joined the group as he thought it would bring him riches.

You apparently need to be jewish and fail getting into politics to be this fucking malefic. I forgot to mention, but one of the guys first sketches of this plan was to kill me, transfer my conscious and brain into some server and have me on his workbench 24/7 as a projection that was fully aware of what was going on.

Then be forced to watch zombie dad rape my fourteen year old sister as she was also getting fucked in the ass by a Rancor baby.

Because, apparently, nobody in the Empire during canon Star Wars timeline ever thought about trying to force Blackwing Virus holders to mate with a non-infected human female. Or have a baby rancor try and fuck a girl that barely hit puberty but was still breeding ready.

In all seriousness, I never learned why. Most of his research is stuff that can be used in the military, such as surgically enchanting the durability of a fully grown, adult, rancor by combining his flesh with some of the highest grade Mandalorian Armor, leaving dozen of gaps in the armor through which to insert numerous Bacta Tanks, not tubes, FUCKING TANKS into that can release the stuff at the press of a button, and use his research into midichloridians to augment the damn things mind to either send it into a raging frenzy or pacify it completely.

For me tho', I honestly doubt it had any strategic merit. It was just a message. "If anybody even thinks of laying their finger on my lab, I will be forced to castrate the threat before it even has a chance to formulate the basis of a plan." Shit like that.

By not taking INT as your dumpstat. Alternatively, how about your GM boosts skillpoints for martial classes, not like they will overshadow anyone else because of it.
Unless they are played by Steve. You're a Fighter, you're not supposed to not suck!

The vampire who sired one of the pcs turned his mother into his ghoul (a mortal addicted to vampire's blood) because she's obsessed with him and she decided it's the best way to keep the family from asking unnecessary questions. I'm starting to think that I maybe went too far with this somewhat Oedipian sideplot. I did tell him that he can un-ghoul her but he's also somewhat freaked out now.

Are you going somewhere with this?

>> No.29233458

Pardon my asking, but for the most part, you are referring to fantasy settings, yes?
Which is generally set in high medieval period, yes?
And for the most part, the PC's family aren't particularly rich or famous, usually. And fairly often live in small out-of-the-way towns, right ?

How does the BBEG know where they are?
Even well-connected ones, this is a major hassle. And I don't know about others, but for me, my hometown or family never comes up, between players or NPCs, in conversation. Most the time they don't even know my last name, not that that is always much benefit anyway, since during that period, the last name was usually the father's, so you could have a guy named John Paul, or the like.
More importantly: what is the gain to spending massive chunks of resources to hunt down sone guy's family? Especially when they just kill them off, insead of holding hostage. There's no point. It isn't going to make the hero stop, after all. Likely it will just piss him more off.

I could understand it in a more modern setting, where everyone is online, has a phone number, and generally is on record, but in a fantasy setting it makes no sense unless they're a noble or something.

I took an example from fantasy settings, but I meant in general.

Any person or organization with the power to be a mover and shaker on the world stage, especially if they have the power to do it from the shadows (which takes more resources than doing it in the open, really), would have a way to figure out somebody's family.

Especially if that person was a famous hero of renown, on a quest to stop the BBEG. The BBEG will be able to get ahold of the census as one anon mentioned earlier, or people will boast that "I knew Dick Rapetrain before he was a hero! He was my neighbor!" Or they can follow the chain of events, deeds done. In one town the party did something notable, and people remember it. Or maybe the BBEG will just scry the fucker, or capture them on camera at some point, make a few prints, and go around different places asking people "have you seen this man/woman/whatever?"

In a modern setting, in a fantasy setting, in any setting where somebody has the resources to threaten the world, gathering information will be the one of the most trivial things they do on a daily basis. Or so I'd imagine.

As for why they'd kill your family? Well, if they're doing it intelligently, they'd only kill one, just to show they could do it again. It gives you the pain of loss, while knowing there is still more to lose.

>> No.29247743
File: 567 KB, 900x1165, notallmen.gif [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Or kill them all in a melodramatic fashion if they know a character is hot blooded (goad him into an attack which of course would be before he is ready to take on the BBEG) or to cut them off from help of the commoners, basically saying "This is what will happen if you help this hero. I can be nice, or I can be dropping magical bombs on your huts your choice."
Or a mentor of the PC could do it, framing it as the BBEG doing it in order to kick start the PC on his quest, bonus points if the Mentor has a shit eating grin when confronted with it after the PC finally slays the BBEG in revenge and the evil guy is like "...who? I never even fucking heard of you before you blew up my outer fortress"
