That might be where our disconnect is coming from, at least in part: I'm fairly big on realism when it comes to such things.In real life? They're going to be torn to pieces.
In D&D? Absolutely nothing. Dirty looks. Someone might spit on them.
You realize that this is my go-to example for why the policy of running monster PCs out of the game doesn't have anything to do with realism, and that I brought it up myself in my first or second post in this thread?
If the flag-wearer would be torn apart in real life, there's absolutely no reason for the same not to happen in the fiction of a D&D game.
Just a side note, but that is so cool and I am totally jelly.
