He has a fully developed second identity established in the city, as a business man (mostly dealing in real estate). Again, there are more Details on the character sheet.
    So in regards to tonight's session, Laucian is like Robbin hood in fact (as the Harper's have been described), but he's more realistic and more selfish. He doesn't wear tights and he's going to make himself comfortable in the process of conning rich people. His neutrality in regards to good and evil means he does some good and some bad; it balances out and always serves his own purposes. Me (and consequently he) were led to believe the Harpers Faction were Neutral as he is, maintaining balance, so he was comfortable and confident with joining them.

    This page about the Harpers describes them as simply good, but not necessarily lawful. I'll concede he's not the best match for them. He sees his cons as a redistribution of wealth from those who can afford to lose it. He's not trying to harm anyone he cons (not truly) and he does want to help some people, as long as he maintains a comfortable lifestyle that suits his goals.

    Laucian is an egalitarian (relating to or believing in the principle that all people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities); I've probably stated it a dozen times over the past couple months. Egalitarianism is definitely a Harper value.

    Also, let's not forget Laucian has gained some renown as a hero in this land. So-what that this gnome has some suspicions that he tried to con a rich guy. I'm not convinced the Harpers would see this as a big deal, given the context and their available knowledge.

    I'll go with the flow no matter what happens. I just thought I'd explain more about who he is, and why I was caught off guard, in case there were misconceptions. @AdmiralMurphy

    That all makes a lot of sense. The conflict from tonight was not about if you are playing Laucian wrong or even if you the character is in the wrong.

    I think this comes from two characters looking at the Harper's differently. Zinnove has a very idealistic view of what the Harpers do and so it is hard for her character to agree with Laucians action.

    I think this should be some fun roleplay in the future because you guys are looking at a common goal but have different means of achieving it.

    It is really cool when two players of similar ideologies end up finding their ideas of a means to an end are different. I like that you have solidly set up Laucian's motivations and morals and like I said this should be interesting! @Litle

    There are 5 or 6 posts missing from this thread now. WTF! That's strange that they could disappear. @AdmiralMurphy

    Edit: I'm guessing this is because of the website server having crashed. I know some data was lost.

    Yeah, it doesn't seem like we lost the council image and I think that's all that matters to keep around right now

    When the site went down we lost 2 or 3 days worth of posts across the forums.

    I just checked my character sheet and wow!, a chainsaw. I don't know how it got there but I'll take it.
