This is an animated part 2 of the story from the video "The Hero Of Parnast". This story is from my Dungeons and Dragons game, where the crew returns back to Parnast to uproot a nefarious villain who is sabotaging the town! Can the crew frame Wallace?
Part 1 found here: usshow.info/watch/AbWwHKYPSjc/video.html
End music from the USshow Audio Library "My Train's A Comin'"

I know the newer stories are created through a different process of narration, but I find I enjoy stories like this more than some of the newer stuff. When Ben has had time to fully digest and internalize all of the characters, the narrative feels much more homogeneous. In these older stories, you can tell how Ben's memory washes out the original characterizations except where he goes meta to talk about the player's or GM's quirks. These old stories feel more like a Monty Python sketch where Ben plays all the parts. The new stories feel more like Ben covering the source material as accurately as possible, trying to get the story straight and respect the people who helped create the experience. Both methods are good, but perhaps they achieve different goals. I think I would really enjoy, in time, if Ben could do rose-tinted remakes or anecdotal outtakes of the new stuff into distillations that resemble these old stories closer.

To be fair Wallace is just some dumb kid. The town is also a bunch of idiots who aren't doing him any favors by making him think he's a hero. So to fix that problem the players should slaughter the whole town and burn it to the ground leaving only Wallace alive, that way he has a standard tragic backstory to start him on the true path of becoming an actual hero.

My players would’ve vaporized him so I’d say yes, yours are lawful good for not actually doing anything to hurt Wallace.

Our DM once tried to insert a "Wallace" during a quest. ... As soon as we left the village, the group's spellcaster petrified him. We stashed him in a safe place and didn't turn him back to normal until after we'd finished the quest and gotten our pay. The excuse to the mayor went something along the lines of; "Yes, that's what happens when you're young, naive and think that trying to charge a basilisk from the front with no protection is a good idea." (He actually hypnotized "Wallace" into thinking that's what happened.) You know where your group stands on an NPC, when they specifically take a long rest before they set out, just so they can prepare the necessary spells to ditch them. And It's not evil because; 1) He's still alive, we just needed to uncurse him when we're done. 2) He's in no danger of being harmed, because he's safely buried and none of the local monsters eat stone statues.

Silver lining, next time trouble finds the town, they'll be relying on Wallace to save them from it...then you don't have to worry about going back to Parnast ;)

I find it hilarious that whatever this module is just automatically assumed the players would instantly like and care for such a useless npc. This is D&D. The majority of players, when encountering annoying characters, would more than likely just kill them off regardless of alignment.

You know.. I think the reason this party hates wallace and the turtle freinds like the secretary of gaberiel is because they had a choice like they could dump her off if they wanted.. This party couldn't do that People hate not having choice

So, do you play without alignment penalties? Seems like your players should just be chaotic neutral. And before anyone says what I know they are going to say, you're wrong. CN is not 100% psychopaths that murder murder murder. Chaotic, despite what you think, means the PC DOES NOT care about the laws of any given region and WILL follow them if they suspect they can't get away with breaking the law. Neutral (good/evil not lawful/chaotic), means the player is free to take what they feel is the best course of action to inact justice or revenge. I can go on listing obvious and gymnastic-level-reasoning excuses as to why your lawful good character, whether paladin or not, would kill hitler if he didn't force you to. But I am tired of screaming into the void that should be your brain.

To be fair, the party basically deserved exactly this kinda outcome for wanting to burn people alive to frame an innocent person just because they didn't like him. Karmic justice in action : D

Just because this is a module doesnt mean you cant MURDER WALLACE. I would sooner take no xp, no gold, change my alignment, and accept that i failed this campaign, then let little wallace get a statue.

Listen, I get the entire point of this is that Wallace is just an annoying NPC, but he legitimately is a bad person. He is praised for actions done by others, and not ONCE does he correct ANYONE and give proper thanks to the party. This level of egotism, where you don't care about the actions of others as long as you get praise and revel in "your own" success is goddamn sociopathy. Wallace is a fucking sociopath.

In my friend's campaign, a prominent noble hired somebody to kill us on a quest. When we returned, we were bitter about the whole incident. As a result, my character spread a rumor around town about the noble having intimate relations with a horse. The rumor spread pretty quickly and another party member feigned ignorance and spreading pamphlets around town for everybody to meet in the center of town. He then went out of his way to tell the story about the noble and the horse while using illusion magic to demonstrate what had happened...just as the noble and his wife arrived back in town.

After watching these, and having played these modules for myself before seeing them, I find the interpretation you guys went wrong the of Wallace interesting. At the table I played at, the DM depicted him as a stand-up 17-19 year old who just thrown in over his head with the sabotage because he was easy to frame, and with the fey journey, h only was sent to guide the party because (through sneaking off with his girlfriend) he was the person in town most familiar with that specific part of the woods(which means he's still not very familiar with it). My ground actually found him to be a nice character who wanted a stable life and to not be bothered by the political nonsense between his father and the Mayor(aka his gfs father).

So, the party is saddled with a useless NPC that doesn't realize their own incompetency, has to save him, and then gets shunted aside so the village can praise said NPC? I'm pretty sure that scenario was listed in instigation column of 'killing with Summon Swarm' for recognizing PC responses.
