I was robbed properly today. The miscreants approached me south of the well in front of several onlookers. Their leader made small talk as two others surrounded me. Once everybody was in place, the tone changed and they demanded that I yield, which I, being unskilled and alone, did promptly. They had me drop my spear, which was pulled over and collected, and then they had me drop my pack, which they emptied out on to the ground. Not finding anything valuable, they left me to clean up, wandering back to the well. I decided not to take things in stride and snatched up the dagger that used to be in my pack. Attacking, I was killed immediately. Most of the civilians screamed out in horror, as did two of the bandits. As they recovered, people started gossipping about my death.
Incidentally, failure to comply with orders results in a fist fight or a beating, depending on if you’re defiantly not yielding or if you are yielded and just not following commands. If you start to comply, it continues on with the steps of the robbery. There are doubtless many ways to make them slip up. I’ve only handled a few of the obvious ones so far, and I’ll probably just leave it at that for this time.
Yesterday I messed around with camp alarms and made armies suffer more if their leaders are lost (by whatever means). Plenty of loading up camp sites and pressing the dismemberment button to test it out.
