Title: Murder Hobos?
Post by: wasahbe on June 26, 2018, 04:50:28 PM
So.  Names for least to most 'evil' PC parties:

Heros
Mercs
Bandits
Murder Hobos

Need more steps?   Better descriptive names?

I would think there are a lot of steps between heroes and murder hobos, i know there are steps between hero and merc because I usually play somewhere inbetween for most of my characters I have played.
I will think about what I would call my characters if I had to label them.

What is this list for?

I'd put "Vigilantes" between Mercs and Bandits. Champions above Heroes, and I would move Murder Hobos up above Bandits, as they aren't evil per se, just driven by treasure and XP gathering. Munchkins need to fit in here someplace. Min-Maxers also fall on this spectrum as well. Really evil... uhh... Slaughters? Umm, not finding the word that's PG-13 for this. Players who have their characters kill people just for the sake of killing people.

[Edit] Psychopaths! That's the word!

Maybe throw 'Outlaws' in there instead of 'Bandits'?  Or just above 'Bandits' if you want more of a rebel-with-a-cause feel.  A few groups might embrace a label, but most will see themselves as victims of circumstances or just trying to survive in a harsh world versus thinking of themselves as evil.
