Date a monster who insists they aren’t capable of human emotions. They are impassive, often seeming cold and distant, but the second you accidently hurt yourself they are on you, almost pathetic in their desperation to make everything better.
Night of Many Eyes -From the twisted mind of my DM
Once per year, the incarcerated murderers of Hearthall are taken out into the streets and strapped to stakes in groups of four, dotted around the city. For the next two days, the public mill around them, perhaps throwing some rotten food or worse.
At sundown on the second day, the cityfolk retreat into their homes and bar their doors, with the murderers being left out in the streets, tied to their posts. When darkness falls, a tide of ghouls and ghasts sweeps across the city, devouring any living being out in the streets.
In the morning, the citizens awake to find the murderers gone. All that is left are their eyeballs, scattered all across the city.
