I just started the book campaign "The Sunless Citadel" and everyone is new, not new to rpg just new to this particular fashion, they all love the fact I give "limited free will" but that's not the issue, the issue is that they have spent the last 3 hours of one session fighting rope. Really it was a lot of critical fails. But later on a new player entered, he chose an evil rogue and I was ok with it for the sake of the lawful good paladin, I was into it. Well in short things went downhill fast and the paladin got him. Then another party member known for being shady as hell tries to step in fails and he cuts him down to. There were obvious warnings such as, I hold my blade to you and ask you dare oppose the laws of Pelor?! and he runs at him so he in defense cut him down, well the barbarian runs over and cuts his head off that 3 dead that's half of the party. So should I give a level to them? On top of that I felt really bad, so I gave him a single roll that can keep you from death and Pelor, his god, brings him back to life for a "higher calling" I'm just not sure, all the behavior was justified, so I want to but at the same time I'm conflicted.
