Forced to Violate Your Own Integrity
In the next hypothetical game, you play Brianna. You and your brother were fighters together on this distant world.
But the enemy built a war machinethis mechanical centaurand it just killed your brother. You, the player, really liked him, because of NPC Rooting Interest Techniques (see Chapter 2.10) and Player Toward NPC Chemistry Techniques (see Chapter 2.11).
But now he's dead. And the enemy is almost here, about to swarm in overwhelming numbers.
You escape the only way possibleby riding on the very creature who killed your brother. It's emotionally complex because, given your choice, you would have rather destroyed the thing. But now you have to use your brother's killer to escape. On some level, it's a violation of integrity.
