    This is a plot device and should not be affiliated with player character decisions.

    Common methods

    Can't Object

    Overall the most "gamey" of restrictions, the player is simply not given the moral option to verbally interject to the slaughter.

    Through the Window

    Very common in sci-fi genres, a transparent, indestructible partition forces the player to watch the death play out with no means of helping.
