Thanks for the clarification pard, I'm an AIM/5e Newbie and I must've gotten the Shadow Point instances confused with each other.Anarfin wrote: ↑Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:49 pmWhoa...You are missing some crucial point. We're not talking about the influence of the Shadow, that you can resist. We're talking about the Misdeed. When you are committing Misdeed, there is no saving throw.Hero_of_Canton wrote: ↑Mon Feb 12, 2018 12:51 amNow, if it were in my forthcoming AIM/5e campaign I'd give the Player-Heroes (Kili & Tauriel) a relatively easy DC to avoid getting Shadow Points because of their respective peoples very long histories of unending strife with Orcs and because both of them are veterans of The Battle of the Five Armies (wherein Kili lost both his Uncle and his brother), but there would at least be the risk of accruing Shadow Points.
But once again, if your players would decide that they will kill helpless slaves because it's the backstory of their characters, it's ok, but they would still get Shadow Points for that. Like Glorelendil said, It's not the "punishment" - it's the way how tainted by Shadow Middle-Earth works.
