I'll let that title sit there for a second while I explain my situation.
So, first off - recently the DM let slip that his current campaign is loosely based on the Star Wars trilogy (which one though, we're still not sure). He also linked this to a couple of "key" items (again, this is only because he took an interest in them, and had a mini heart attack when we thought we left one behind). These items are a pair of "glass" swords - a black one and a clear one.
Now, my character is a Dragonborn, and I have recently discovered that I might be able to become a half-dragon. I spoke to the DM about this, and he decided that depending on how I went about it, it could fit into the storyline, so he would allow it. The party is level 4.
Now - I currently hold the Clear Glass Sword, and one of my the other PC's holds the Black Glass Sword. So let's go with the hypothetical situation that I want that sword. In my mind, I see that turning out with me taking it from his cold, dead hands. Along with some of the above points I mentioned - particularly the "metamorphosis" I was hoping to achieve, I'm starting to see this as a bit of a "Anakin/Vader" type situation.
A few speed bumps however:
- I am a Neutral Good character. If I carried this out, it would require a great change of mind/change of heart to do this. I'm having trouble coming up with a reason as to all of a sudden why I would want to do this. So far I have no issue with any party members, and the first "evil" character we met, I instantly had a problem with.
- This is obviously the bigger one - I'd be killing another Player Character. This is more than likely going to cause a conflict with this player, but I can see this being an excellent story development (What a tweest!).
How could I go about this, without causing too big of an issue with the story line, breaking character, and breaking up the group?
Note: To clarify, following all the passive suggestions of "why don't you talk to him and ask nicely", this situation is entirely hypothetical at this point. I have no intention of breaking up the group, or making anyone believe I have it out for them, it is just one way I feel I could contribute to the development of the story, following the "Anikin/Vader" vibe I mentioned above.
