|Summary||0010603: KILL_NEUTRAL:REQUIRED ethic makes NPCs demand adventurer indenity even|
|Description||In the event that the game is modded to allow playing as a a civ with the kill_neutral ethic set to required, fellow citizens will spam "identify yourself" demands at a person they've known since their birth, since they were born, etc.|
If the player fails to notice this even once, their lifelong friends will soon turn no-quarter on them.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Change the human KILL_NEUTRAL ethic to required.|
2. Start as a human.
3. Pass by various NPCs.
4. Observe that both PC and NPC are on a first-name basis.
5. Find another NPC or two and ignore them.
|Additional Information||Related is http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=10346, [^] wherein NPCs that SHOULD now each other ask for identity endlessly. I've also seen it frequently end in bloodshed.|
My latest experience with this was walking into a keep and seeing a guard fighting another guard, and a guard fighting a poet. At the same time, all the children in the building went no-quarter immediately. I actually got my shit kicked in by unarmed kids.
This continued until I was seeing so many messages about getting beaten by children that I missed an instance of a guard demanding an identity from my half-dead body. The end result was being in a small room with about a dozen angry armed NPCs. They didn't even care about my having had to strangle two of the lil bastards to get them off me, but I fail to say my name just once...
