So my skyrim character is a tool. Willing to help with any problem. This can be dangerous, for the tasks of men are scarcely without harm to others. I ran across a camp in the woods. The men had lost their keep to bandits. The leader, an older man known as the father, told me his family was being held captive inside. I decided to help.
No family being held in the keep. A bandit cooking. Many more merrily making jokes over the first fine meal they'd had in months. A leader fierce in study at his desk (good book, I swiped it and read it while he was investigating a strange noise in the hallway).
I reach the roof and open the front gate.
The keep is flooded with militiamen. The merriment becomes mayhem. The father is now wearing a bloody mask and his vengeance is wrought on all in sight without remorse.
The fires clear and I cautiously approach the father. He rewards me with a book and some gold. The book is the same book the bandit leader was reading.
In my tool-ish and blind quest to help, I unleashed carnage on this day. Did I make the right choice? I don't really think I did.
