French Desperate WindChild Posted May 29, 2021 Report Share Posted May 29, 2021 to be clear I am just talking about glorantha, I m not discussing about what is good or not irl. Let's say a leader like Ned Stark in game of thrones... He is described in wikipedia as "known for his sense of honor and justice" and.. I ask myself about Glorantha. Does a guy who decides the death of people (ok bad people but people) and cut himself their head an honorable man ? We have in rqg a list of not honorable acts (and what could be the interpretation in this "justice" case) : attacking an unarmed foe => an unarmed prisonner killing a guest => a guest who did some bad things killing kinfolk => a brother/cousin who did some bad things. Does that mean that only unhonorable people pronounce and/or perform capitale sentence ? In my opinion, if the crime is rather important, the only thing honor will provide is "be fair",don't care the status of the guilty (guest, kinfolk ...)and as it is not an attack, and not a foe but a criminal, providing death is not dishonorable. Or does that mean the judge has to ban the guy (so no more guest, no more kinfolk), give him/her weapons (so no more unarmed), and then organize a "hunt" ? (I don't think attacking one person with 10 thanes more honorable by the way) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
