    Quick question; I am about to enter the Temple for the first time. Once you are in the temple do you generally return to Homlet or Nulb? I kind of want to kill mostly everyone for making me run around dealing with their domestic issues. But I don't want to break a story line or leave myself needing a merchant.

    Thanks

    The answer is simple. Yes.

    The other other answer is "That depends on whether your playing Lawful Evil, Neutral Evil, Chaotic Evil, or Stupid Evil." How are we to know whether or not you will feel you need the merchants of Hommlet. I personally always return to Hommlet over Nulb. Burning your bridges is seldom a good idea.

    I kind of thought it would not be a good idea. I just wasn't sure if you really left the temple once you entered. Sounds like you do. Maybe I'll do away with Nulb and leave Hommlet alone.

    Even clearing out Nulb will have consequences for you. Not everyone there is what they seem to be. There are connections between these areas that extend beyond the realm of what is known. Be careful who you kill if you don't want to pooch your game.

    Unless you want to make things overly hard for yourself. Of course, a scorched earth game might be fun, too.

    I'm not taking about him, I'm talking about a pirate from a book (that became a movie) called the Princes Bride.

    "Has it got any sports in it?"
    "Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles..."

    Is this a kissing book? You said that there wasn't any kissing.
    :heart:
    I think the author used a familiar sounding name to bolster the story telling. It's a common tactic among writers & story tellers. I been known to use it me'self while DMing.
    :D
