    It's totally worth the joke in the last panel. For bards, it's always worth the joke or the plot entanglement.
    All role playing advice is given without knowledge of you and your group. Only you and your group knows what is fun for you. What you are doing is not badwrongfun. My advice is offered based on what I think might be fun for you to try.

    Now I think Elan will sympathize a bit more with Roy's frustrations.

    Is Elan lawful? Would it have been evil to kill somebody who a) just tried to assassinate his liege, b) tried to kill a pregnant woman and her husband, c) poisoned his underling who was too loyal to turn him in, and d) indirectly caused a huge demon to be summoned that killed numerous NPCs?

    Now that I think about it, how the heck did Kubota ever survive living in the same city with Miko "Die, Evildoer!" Miyazaki?

    Elan will let Kabuto drown. Rich drew attention to kabuto's +5 armor for this reason.

    1. Miko was often sent on far flung quests IIRC.
    2. Not sure if the Azure city allowed paladins Detect evil on whoever they felt like.
    3. There are everal Cheap way to defeat the Detect Evil spell.

    Not to defend Kubota, but mass murderer? Nale was a mass murderer. Kubota has personally murdered one person that I can think of, and has attempted to arranged the assassination of a few more... and Therkla was when he was in serious physical jeopardy.

    Elan has twice arranged for Nale to be imprisoned, not killed, despite the fact that he could escape and cause more havoc. In fact, the second time was *after* he escaped and murdered a number of people... and framed Elan for it.

    Maybe being Good doesn't mean letting mass murderers live to kill again. But so far, being Elan means you don't execute people.

    And I think that is key -- the question is not what does the good alignment abstractly require, but what kind of a person is Elan?

    Can't be. He's a bard.

    Well, yeah sure. But besides that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?
