Player 1 – Okay if all doors are all braced I'm going to a second story window with my crossbow.
Player 2 – Walking up behind the other people here who are at the windows with bows. Giving them a firm pat on the back as a sign of reassurance... it's not much but it's all I can do.
Player 3 – I'm going to drop out of the second floor window onto the ground below.
Player 4 – I'm... um wait... what did you do?
Player 3 – Going to try and reason with them. See if we can reach some sort of agreement here.
GM – You do realize these are the Orks that have been raiding the countryside for the last few weeks. They've left almost a hundred people dead in their wake.
Player 3 – Still it's worth a shot right?
Player 4 – I would say it's suicide actually.
GM – The Orks eye you very carefully, grins spreading across their faces as several ready their bows.
Player 3 – I hold my hands open and to my side showing I'm unarmed and slowly approach them.
GM – And they let lose with their arrows. Let me make some rolls to see how many of them hit.
Player 3 – What? Don't I even get a chance to talk to them? Try to work something out?
GM – I think I made it pretty clear over the last couple of games that these Orcs are killing everything they come across without hesitation. Even the survivors you have found have repeated this.
Player 3 – Well you should at least let us try diplomacy. You should run this differently.
