Hi All, I posted a few months ago, where my group were playing Seekers of the Ashen crown in my own homebrew word not Eberron,
basically when conscriptred to join the quest the party insulted the captain of the guard and got into a fight with the city guard,
basically They got their **** kicked and wewre more interested in getting revenge on the city guard than completing their quest,
The problem is 3 characters are unaligned and the party cleric is lawful good,
The characters carried on with their quest but as explained in the module they return to sharn with the city guard looking for them as they have been betrayed by Tikulti
To give trhem a chanhce to roleplay or think of a situation to avoid a direct conflict with the city guard the pary travwelling by coach see the city guard at the gate searching eveery coach cart or traveller looking for the party,
So instead of thinking of a way to speak to the captain , sneak in disguise them selves etc the parties goliath unaligned barbarian walks straight up to the guardsmen armed to the teeth, when told to surrender and dropo his weapons he refuses so the guards lay about him trying to club him unconscious the whole party including lawful good cleric attack the city guard resulting into the mage setting light to one of the peasants carts with a fireball etc,
after a fierce fight all the city guard at the gate are killed of course the guard thinking its an assault on the city call in reinforcements, the party now outnumbered retreat taking a guard hostage abnd demand to talk to the captain,
so anyway its resolved but the clerics bishop and the wizards head of the school of magic have to enter the fray to calm the party down,
I feel though the other characters are unaligned so in fairness they can behave how they wish but a lawful good cleric is behaving without honour, the city guard were misguided not evil. Violently attacking the guard setting light to innovcent citizens property and causing panic are not the actions of lawful good....
so how do i resolve this, If the cleric gets away with no punishment alignment becomes a mockeery, players acting beyond the law would certainly incur the wrath of their home city. they have ashturas blade so the city needs them to xcomplete the quest,
Also though the cleric is not acting true to his alignment how can I make him play it without just punishing him and the rest of the party getting scot free?
your suggestions would be welcome
