omgFIREBALLS Posted April 3, 2016 Share Posted April 3, 2016 It is my perspective that if you want to play as a dirty, conniving double-crosser, you do not use these responses... unless perhaps there is great gain to be had. Why? Because obviously it builds you that reputation. Any answer can be a lie; my current Watcher is manipulative and selfish but has never used a deceptive response. If she goes for [Honest] or [benevolent] it's because she wants to be perceived that way, not because she is that way. If she does someone a favor, it's to gain their trust. When I see [Deceptive] I read [Tell an obvious lie]. Using Ser Davos Seaworth for inspiration: If you're a famous liar, you're not doing it right. (original quote) There's a twist to it though, because I do not feel dispositions always equate to reputation. They can also mean personality. Why else would some responses have disposition requirements? I don't like to imagine that the game is filtering out responses I cannot use on the basis that every NPC is subscribed to the live feed of my long-term behavior (which they certainly seem to be, however) and will not accept such a threat from me given that I do not have at least 2 points of an aggressive reputation. So on the one hand, I would like to see what foul lies I could produce if I built up a high deceptive disposition. But on the other, I don't want the whole world to perceive me as a terminal liar. Anyone play a [Deceptive] Watcher and find it satisfying?
