So my Doctor in Skyrim, Tiraali Ralvedren, ran into an issue that presumably only happens when one is surrounded by Nords.
When she tried to talk Mikael the Poncy Ass Bard out of harassing Carlotta Valentina, she was unable to persuade him. Being a Doctor in Skyrim, Tiraali had zero extra funds with which to bribe him (bribery being a concept she doesn’t agree well with anyway), so brawling was the only option left to her.
Except she hates violence too, so she tried to Jedi Mind Trick Mikael into standing down with a calm spell.
“SERIOUSLY THERE’S NO NEED TO GET VIOLENT BRO, JUST CALM THE FLYING FUCK DOWN.”
And then Hulda the innkeeper sicc’d the guards on Tiraali for some reason, and while they were trying to arrest the pacifist who had been attempting to avoid a scenario where someone got hurt… Uthgerd the Unbroken ran Tiraali through with her Big Fucking Sword and killed her.
I got murdered because I am a Dark Elf in Skyrim in possession of a strong moral fiber and a healthy respect for the authority of law enforcement.
What the actual fuck.
