I've been really jonesing for a tabletop group to play with/ a social activity in general, and so I joined my young, trendy, genderqueer friend's 3.5 group. Surprise, surprise, the other members are even trendier and even more explicitly identitarian in everything they say or do. (I'm not making this thread to knock on them by the way. They're fine people and we share some common interests, I just don't share their subculture and worldview I guess.)
Point is, our current quest has us in a town that's dealing with police corruption. The DM's a 19 year old kid, and when asked exactly what kind of corruption, they struggled to come with an answer, and settled on protection rackets, heavy jail time for minor offenses, and being generally overbearing. The rest of the party don't particularly care, who are gung ho about violence in general, are pretty enthusiastic about the chance to stick it to AC.
The party (including two lawful good paladins) has been inducted into the local thieves guild, and the plan is essentially to storm the headquarters and beat the shit out of the guards until they reform I guess, and that's where we ended the session. The DM doesn't seem to be the type to question the effectiveness of this.
My LE Cleric, who's already a bit of a devil's advocate, has pointed out that it's questionable whether the people will even support a bunch of random brigands and murderhobos who came in and kicked out law enforcement, but I'll admit I don't have a better way to hit these particularly bad cops where it hurts. Again I don't hate these people, I'm a left-leaning gay dude myself, but I really think there's a more clever, more elegant solution I'm missing.
Any ideas /tg/?
