This week's podcast, the staff talked about how the main characters are sadistic against the orcs. Some of the actions may feel "gross." Ben says there was a camp that disliked the previous game because of that. (I've heard people use the word "gross," in context of the setting but not in this way.) They also talk about the humanizing of orcs, a bit. My interest is players' emotional reactions as they're playing, not when you analyze the situation.
So my question to you, just based off your inert reaction to playing the game, did your actions against the orcs make you feel uncomfortable?
