Ok before this gets out of hand the whole point of Amara's death was honestly to shock you and all the other players.
Silent came to me 2 weeks ago telling me she could not keep up with the game and she wanted to drop out. After talking with her for an hour or so we both decided it was for the best if she did so. However she asked one favor of me and that was to kill off Amara in a very gory way. So I respected her wishes and did so. The idea for one of the Goblin children to attack and rip out her throat came from Kyle yesterday afternoon while we sat together watching Football.
As far as leaving her behind alone you did not as Aliya and Lothor were still in the area with her. She was not alone per say so Jessica has nothing to feel guilty about. Angry that Amara is dead yes guilty no. However I will not tell you how to play Jessica as I am only the DM so if you decide as you stated in your PM not to accept the Holy Avenger that is your call. It will just go back into Cor's Bag of Holding..
I understand what you are saying; but if Jessica would have seen what Amara was doing she might have stood by her there and maybe warned her about getting too close. It might have helped if we had warning that you were going to purposely eliminate a character that was no longer going to be played.
In any case, Jessica still might feel guilty about letting down her guard and allowing one of the group die so horribly. Will see how this whole thing works out in the end; if too many people get hurt she might feel she is not worthy of the sword that Cor is offering her. We will see.
Tan I know you feel you must keep on a time schedule butů
With the death of one of our own, the offering of such a great gift and valued weapon, and the possible guilt and possible reluctance to except such an offering this might give a week or two of really good role playing and party bonding.
Just a thought.
