In my group, we have a paladin of Torag, with intelligence 9. When first meeting the Queen, he swore himself to her service. *sigh*
We have now played EoA and SDttG. The heroes are pretty certain that the Queen is behind the plague and large amounts of other wickedness.
So... Where does this leave our paladin? The Queen is becoming aware that the heroes, who did a splendid job of fighting the plague, are her enemies. She has not yet ordered the paladin to do anything but go to Cressida and see what she needs help with, as per EoA. Nor is it likely that she will be able to do so, at least not for a good while.
The paladin thought about it, and considers it a serious problem. For the moment, I think that is quite enough. But actively not obeying an order to someone sworn to you is about as clear cut a chaotic act as can be. Avoiding her is pretty much a borderline case. Then again, obeying a known monstrous evil person's orders is very much an evil act.
I do not want to screw the player over for playing his character. At the time, he had no way to know who the Queen really was. Any thoughts?
