Fair Game : When Evil = DNA

Posted Aug 23, 2013 by Suzie Ford

Evil is an integral part of every MMO we play. Whether it's gnolls or trolls or demons, there is evil afoot in every game. In our latest Fair Game column, we take a look at the notion of evil. See if you agree before heading to the comments to chat it up.

When one is writing a book, a series, or, for our purposes, an MMO, it’s pretty darned difficult to come up with justifiable reasons why our Hero can cut a bloody swath of destruction across the landscape and still remain a Hero. But not only does our protagonist manage to remain a Hero, but a Hero who gains strength and wisdom (in the form of XP) and wealth (from looting the bodies) as a reward for all that killing. So, how does one spend one’s days spilling intestines and still wear a white hat? I mean, they can’t all be murderous bandits, can they? Easy, those spilled entrails were the entrails of evil. Excuse me, EEEEEEVIL!
