What about an option to send the boy to his father's same fate? To make it interesting, the boy could have some type of valuable on him that would only be attainable through his death.

What
You want Beth to...

THINK?!

I'm just saying it would be a good role playing option for that sort of evil person who is more manipulative than say brute force. I don't really expect that kind of an option from Beth.

How the heck does only being able to take it from his corpse make any sense? If you were a brute you could just take it from him without killing him. If you were a smooth talker you could just convince him to part with it.

And for fuck sake people! Why is everyone praising Rat Keeng for ripping off a South Park line?

It makes perfect sense. IF you aren't a brute character, or you are not the thieving sort, this is a perfect alternative.

A charismatic person could be evil.

Damn kids, that line is decades older than whatever South Park episode it was in. I'm sure you could find that classic old army joke somewhere, with a soldier having to inform a couple that their son died in combat.

That doesn't mean they have to be malicious.

It also doesn't mean they don't have to be malicious, so what's your point?

One gives more options than the other, and makes sense. The other is just an arbitrary game rule. You can only take the item off his corpse. Apparently there is some magic bond that keeps it from being removed from his person until death.

Ah I see, you think I'm only saying this is THE only option because I mentioned death as part of the requirement, that was my bad. I meant this in addition to other ways of getting it, weather it be intimidation, thieving, etc.

I would've also expected the kid to havea stronger reaction to a dead dad than as if you stepped on his shoes but w/e

Yep, copy-paste design is the trend these days. First in graphics (this old example), now in dialog. This world is rotten.
