The Safety of Children

Sorry for the late post today, but I’ve been dealing with some personal issues regarding my children. It reminded me of some of the games I’ve run where NPCs were children. Sometimes it’s a kid enemy, who some players were cautious about attacking, some wanting only to knock them out (just in case they are being controlled) and others that don’t care and just blast the hell out of them anyway. It makes me question humanity some times that the idea of “defeating” a child is such an easy one to make. Now, I know it’s an imaginary world and world, but the thought of it being a kid should at least give pause. How we treat our young and our weak defines us as a people. Sometimes, we utterly fail.

I’d love to hear about your experiences with kid NPCs.
