Incident Description: This will be a lengthy one, apologies.
I was a ling engineer, who (very luckily) found a tator pie cannon in maints. I used it to bait the captain Varisia Lote to a secluded location and crit them - at which point they, obviously, died. A medic, cleans-the-messes, arrived on sight less than 20 seconds later, grabbed the body while asking not to get killed and ran away with it, which i just let happen.
A bit later, after them calling out for me while i steal the plutonium core, I find HoS Berengar Beeblebrox, whom I shoot and try to crit, to, once again, steal their gear. I manage to crit them, and at that point, somehow, half the goddamn crew tried to validhunt me and take me down - i had to pie like 10 people while screaming to back off or i’ll have to use lethals. I decided to run away after a bit, and gained a fair bit of sympathy from the crew due to, basically, not murdering people for no reason.
Now for the actual shitty part :
After escaping and going around, I hear a call for a meeting of heads. I decide to head to bridge, announcing that I would arrive on comms a bunch of times. I enter cap’s room, to which she instantly shoots me - I pie them once, tell them to stop and that i’m here to talk. They tell me that I should go and “barging into my room really isn’t the best idea”. Fair. I head out, say hello to the RD and start typing out demands - at which point I see the HoS.
Instantly, he decides to take out batong despite knowing I came to talk. I beat his ass fair and square, without hurting him - at which point he gets back up, cap arrives, and they BOTH start trying to take me out AGAIN, attacking first on both occasions. A bit understandable, though - I did crit one in maints and kill the other once.
I beat them to crit, again, and let the RD revive them, asking “Are you willing to talk now?”
Normally, this would be the part where any sensible roleplayed character would finally listen, knowing they’re actually facing someone who will kill them if it has to come down to that.
HoS simply tells me to talk. I ask for simply being allowed to leave on the escape shuttle, and not being arrested.
HoS tells me no, begs for AI to bolt bridge and lock me in with them, and makes a shotgun sec enter with the cap, so that all three can beat my ass, which they nearly manage to do, out of nowhere, while I was debating and offering an actual interesting roleplay opportunity.
From that point on, it kept going worse and worse. The crew outright defended me (to them, i became a pacifist once i finished my objectives and they didn’t want to make me angry either), the AI was doing AMAZING roleplay (trying to find solutions, compromises, you know, actually roleplaying what it’d be like if some strong guy just came and asked for a meeting)
and meanwhile, cap/hos were CONSTANTLY on the hunt, CONSTANTLY yelling to KILL me and get rid of me, to dispose of me with extreme prejudice, despite only fleeing/defending myself outright and always offering opportunities to discuss/negotiate.
(Me and cap encountered once more, too, by luck for cap, where all they did was try to pie me and call all sec to engineering - then when i escaped through hand tele, asking all sec to head to medical which was were the hand tele supposedly should have taken me)
They even went as far as ordering security members to go in EVERY pod and make sure I had NO WAY of escaping (and they definitely know I could have taken them on, basically sending people to a possible death for no valid reason when a deal could just be made)
Finally, on the escape shuttle, I board with no weapons in my hand, talking with the crew - solely to find the cap rushing to me with a lethal energy gun, shooting at me (despite bystanders risking to get shot) followed by yelling on comms that i’m in the shuttle and all officers need to come, followed by a very dumb fight around the shuttle, being a tiny bit validhunted by crew but mostly lethaled by cap/hos constantly until they finally get the upper hand and manage to kill me.
Except, i was a ling, so I just woke up and tried to get my backpack back from them-which they used as an opportunity to once again fuck me over, sending me to the station through hand tele.
Additional Information: While it was very fun for me to handle all that and fight them, I have no doubt that a lot of people would have died the second they decided to do a “diplomacy” gimmick simply because le validhunt unga.
It is in no way okay to roleplay a “Vengeful Bitch. LITERALLY KILL HER.” as captain (their words, on Discord), or say “they attacked my security team so they have to die” (especially since apart from hos and cap once, before the whole negociation started, i never attacked first) Nor is it okay for these events to even transpire that way - they are human beings not player controlled avatars. Their deaths mean something, and coming so close to that several times should make them actually, like, try to roleplay and not validhunt.
The way they acted was much more equivalent to a bloodthirsty mute mime whose only words are “help explodes (location) come kill” than that of an actual head of station, concerned for their health AND the health of their crewmembers.
