Originally posted by datguy13:Interestingly, the Malacath quest is one I liked. Malacath supports strength and honor, even though he is brutal by nature. Your job is to put a group who has strayed from this path of honor and strength back on it. I can get behind that one 100% because your reward is a very powerful weapon that you receive for defending yourself against a duplicitous, lazy conniver who was willfully bringing ruin and hardship to his own people and giving an entire tribe of people a chance to make things right with their diety. Good stuff there, in the larger picture. Molag Bal (in case that's the guy you're really thinking of) on the other hand... well, now *that* was sadistic. But then again, the justification is that you're doing bad things to worse people, so it still isn't as morally reprehensible as it could be. It's also kind of a no-brainer too; the guy in question has got it coming because he picked a fight with a freakin' Daedric Prince (not the smartest way to improve your personal survivability), and the people you find him with are just as murderous, duplicitous and evil as he his. So in the end, it serves only to rid the world of a half-dozen lesser evils without actually advancing the machinations of a greater one-- it only massages Molag Bal's over-inflated ego to accomplish the task properly.The thing about the forum of exploration is this though- it still comes down to exploring the depths of depravity without exploring the heights of heroism. If you choose not to become the monster, then life goes on. It's as if the writer is trying to beat into us (not very subtly either) that there is no good in this world, only layers of depravity and immorality. That might seem rich and entertaining for a certain mindset or perspective, but it's not very engaging or thought-provoking to only see one side of an argument. With no contrasting examples or opinion, the experience becomes very one-dimensional and starts to feel like you're being railroaded not by a Higher Power, but by a writer who is too immature to understand the subject matter he's trying to present.I'm happy to say that at least it's entertaining. The issue might be presented somewhat shallowly (in my opinion) but at least the presentation of the package itself is well-made with all the voice-acting and graphic artistry.
