After a few combats with undead, elementals, and other non-humanoid creatures the Bard took charge and engenered an escape plan.
Now that the Evil Bard has reached level 6 and gained access to Suggestion he has decided to use within his Bardic Music Ability of Fascinate, Suggestion and the bonuses of his Bluf, Diplomacy Skills to full effect: For reference here is the Bulk of Suggestion:
You influence the actions of the target creature by suggesting a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two). The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the activity sound reasonable. Asking the creature to do some obviously harmful act automatically negates the effect of the spell.
The suggested course of activity can continue for the entire duration. If the suggested activity can be completed in a shorter time, the spell ends when the subject finishes what it was asked to do. You can instead specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. If the condition is not met before the spell duration expires, the activity is not performed.
He has decided he wants to Long Term goal to basically Pied Piper Style snag a few people from Villages over time creating a loyal and Fanatical Army of followers, eventually over taking towns, Cities, Kingdoms, and Countries.
I tried to explain that such actions would have concquences and if it was in fact as easy as he thought that one diplomatic Bard would be ruller of All by now.
He is dead set in the belief that his character is Useless as a Bard there is no point in being Evil, all Mind Controlling and Influencing effects are useless. I am out of ideas.
If I allow him to have his "Followers" either from Music or Skills the other two players will not have fun and I believe the Group would eventually Die due to unwanted attention from higher ups so to speak.
I checked into the posts about Charm/Dominate Issues and Guidebook to evil, and even pointed them out to the Player to no avail.
Can someone help me?
What can I do with a character who not only uses Charm, Suggestion, Fasinate, Dominate but also Bluff, Diplomacy?
