what to cut off
Okay so say a month back a few friends of mine and i are playing dnd and we just finished up a fight against 4 humans that were in some organisation. 3 are dead and one is alive but hurt. our dm asks us what we want to do now. also, the organisation is terrorising the village were in and we know where the headquarters are located.
DM: the human is hurt and he surrendered, fearing that you might kill him like his companions. what will you do?
sb in party: KILL HIM TO SCARE THE OTHERS OFF!
rest of party: mixes of yes/no shouted in unison.
bard: we could cut off his tongue and send it to the rest of his organistion
barbarian: cut off his head!
me: guys no we have three dead ones, use those instead
bard: but this guy was also an asshole
me: hmmm true thing.
me: no no no wait he surrender, just drop him off at the sherrifs office!
barbarian: CUT OFF HIS TONGUE SO HE CANT TELL ON US
bard: YEA! or or or his hands!?
me: ooh we could. maybe put them in the shape for flipping off??
bard: yea! oh and how about we use his cape as a little bag to piss them off and also as proof that its one of theirs?
me: but still, the alive one or the dead ones?
(our captive is looking more and more worried, and a few townspeople has assembled around us by now)
dm: so what are you gonna do with this guy or the dad ones or.. whatever youre gonna do?
barbarian: CUT OFF HIS TONGUE
me and bard: NO SHUT UP
And the convo went on like that for approximately 30-45 minutes. we had an entire freaking convo about what our party should do with the alive or dead humans, whether or not to cut off a bodypart and send it to the organisation headquarters. and not once were genitalia mentioned.
