I was excited to buy this game on Steam the first day it came out. I wanted to play as a thief.
First mission where I really get to do anything involving stealth is the mission from the miller to get the ring from the executioner. I tried to use Savior Schnapps for the first time after I stealthed into the executioner’s room while he was asleep because I wanted to see the different ways I could play out the mission. However, what I learned was that whenever I reloaded the save, the executioner would just wake up which didn’t leave me many options. I decided to just roll with this, and I killed the executioner (a botched robbery, it was Henry’s first after all).
I was content with this, I even enjoyed hiding the executioner’s body in a nearby pond. I didn’t kill any of the dogs; as I figured, who are they going to tell anyway?
What I didn’y enjoy was that the next day everyone hated me in Rattay. I am reading on the forums that now I have to punch a guard and go to jail just to get their rep back up? This is ridiculous. I have pretty much lost interest in playing after finding this out. I think that with my playstyle I am going to end up doing something like this in every town at least once. Why did everyone know immediately after? there definitely weren’t any witnesses. It could have been any of the dirty refugees!
I don’t want to spoil any more of the story for myself without really understanding how the crime and reputation systems work. Was it a fluke that Rattay hates me or is just gonna be this way if I kill someone while they are awake (or even at all)?
