Wow Ferret. The person playing the paladin sounds like a jerk. I mean, its one thing that they paladin is going to have it out for your evil cleric, and if they kill you because you've openly broken a law. or commited some atrociously open act of evil, because that would be in character. I mean it'd still suck to lose a character that you'd invested so much time into, but a least the paladin would've been role playing, but to openly act against your alignment for no reason, and kill another player is not only poor role playing, but poor "sportsmanship" as well. Perhaps they were mad because you were a better roleplayer than them My Mystic( Lawful Neutral, for now... we'll see how his stint into the dark arts affects his demeanor) has killed one of our PCs. He killed our kender Rogue. but not out of spite, though he did find him annoying. I killed him after he has sustained massive damage( he was at -9), so my character eased him into the next world with a merciful Coup de grace. I did want to get rid of the character, because I thought it was a little too distracting. but I went about it the way my character would. He wouldn't openly murder someone, instead he bided his time, until the kender got him self in trouble, and killed him in an act of mercy(He is a mystic of death and all "life cycle" and all that jazz) but anyway, I like to think I put a great deal of thought into what my character would do in any given situation...and it annoys me to great extent when someone does something thats not even remotely in flavor for their character. Oh well, its just a game, perhaps I'm looking too much into it.
