I couldn't live with myself if I did that. I'm supposed to be a good guy; That's why when it comes to quest choices, I always endeavor to do the "right thing". And when it's not immediately apparent what the right thing would be, I spend time and effort thinking over it before deciding. Birthright of the Dwarves took me a whole weekend.

So no, I certainly didn't kill any of the prisoners there. And I don't think they were turned into vampires, either - Now when I pass through Meiyerditch (as I sometimes might when accompanying a friend doing the quests), citizens in Meiyerditch sometimes emote as they see me and say with yellow text how I saved their lives in Darkmeyer.

Ah, yes, so I heard. Luckily I didn't do it on release - I was waiting to get and read Return to Canifis first. And it was worth it - made the quest so much better. The novels + Branches combined gave me a lasting appreciation for the Myreque and Morytania, and birthed the most horrible forced meme to ever live (or unlive?).

I don't think when I need to act. I spared them. And Veldaban. And killed Ikadia because she wanted. Gave grayzag to the hands of black knights. I usually spare whoever I can.


I also spare people whenever I can (I extend this even to not killing quest npcs in fight segments who I don't strictly have to kill, unless they'd kill some good guys/allies if I didn't). Didn't kill Ikadia, and Grayzag was put in jail by the Knights of Falador.

By choices that aren't immediately apparent, I mean things like the very final choice in Birthright of the Dwarves.

@ZamorakZaros

What they "want" isn't necessarily what they really want, though. May have been in Ikadia's case (I remember her being quite cheery... She certainly had some "interesting" outlooks!), but the case of the ogre shaman from the Rise of the Red Axe quests comes to mind. I remember him being thankful after I spared him - His asking to die was in a moment of trauma/pain.

As for Grayzag, he was clearly not entirely mentally sound. You can't say a crazy person "deserves it", even if his actions did lead to death etc.

But it wasn't like we were letting Grayzag free; The Knights of Falador were going to send him to jail.

...The same guys who exiled Solus Dellagar because they didn't think any jail could hold him and execution absolutely wasn't an option according to their code.

...Hmm. Maybe you have a point. Oh well, if Grayzag returns from exile a few years down the line, I'm sure the Temple Knights can take care of it.
