I hated the cannibals who made me eat a priest, so after I got the ring and won their trust I chose to kill them all in the name of Mephala.
After about 20 hours of play-time later it turns out one of them had survived the massacre and made an attempt to kill me in the forest however the poor fool ended up getting burnt to crisp by my pet dragon.
What if someone does bad things, but not to you personally? Is it okay to hate them then? What if they hurt someone close to you but not you? If you don't develop emotional attachments, either positive or negative, to fictional characters, you aren't even experiencing the story, situations, drama, etc. --- I was able to reload my assault rifle in front of one of them because they were too busy looking threatening. -Rob_Indahood
