Topic: Trooper Freestyle Morality Questions

I found this on the swtor forums, and I thought that it would be cool to bring it here.

Before I go on I would like to give the credit to MrMoto of the SWTOR forums for creating this quiz.


In this quiz, instead of simply giving you a few options to choose from, read the scenario and state what your trooper would do in that situation. Furthermore, state why your agent chose that course of action and where on the light/grey/dark spectrum you believe your decision resides.

Choose carefully trooper, and give 'em hell.

1) You are in command of a long range reconaissance squad that has been operating deep within sith territory for an extended period of time. After being cut off from your extraction point, your squad has been surviving off the land, and has done so long enough for your supplies to run dangerously low, especially food and medicine. Your squad comes across a small village of unknown loyalty in the middle of it's harvest season. Your second in command jokingly states that you should simply steal what you need from the villiage and a few hungry soldiers chuckle and nod in agreement. You and your men are not carrying much in the way of material possessions but might be able to scrounge up enough to barter some supplies from them. You and your men hear a sharp rustling sound nearby and see several youngsters dashing towards the small hamlet. Time to choose.

What do you do? Do you haggle with the villagers, and hope you can afford some supplies to keep you and your men going or do you shashay up, fire a few rounds into the sky and start demanding food, and drink? (and song! and wenches! mustn't forget the wenches!) What do you do about the fact that several of your own troops seem fine about raiding a small defenseless village? Do you chastise or encourage them? What value does your trooper place on the lives of non-combatants?



2) Congratulations, You have a love intrest! Bad news, your Love interest is missing inside a fortified sith town. A town you and an entire republic division will be assaulting in 24 hours; possibly enough time for you to infiltrate the town, find your LI and get back to republic lines before the assault begins. You also shudder to think about the consequences if you're discovered missing during the night. Thankfully, you and your paramour carry tracking devices should you get seperated, but the effective range is fairly limited, and doesn't stretch outside the city walls. There is no time to waste trooper. What do you do?

Do you brave the wrath of your enemies and your superiors to save your beloved, or do you hold position and wait until you are ordered to move into the town? Do you voluteer to be the first group making the assault and make a beeline to your target as soon as you're inside the city walls? Do you remain and have faith in your LI's abilities to stay alive? What happens when your personal life conflicts with your duty?



3) You and your men have been placed under the command of a jedi padawan. After a mission together it has become painfully clear that the padawan (while a skillful personal combatant) has no real understanding of how to fight alongside others. Bounded fire, center peel, counter ambushing drills and other things that are as natural to you as breathing have so far mystifyed the youngster. Although the kid is eager to learn as much as possible, you are a bit skeptical about how much the now-unpopular padawan is actually absorbing. What do you do?

Do you continue to try and teach unit tactics to the young padawan? If you do how many soldiers are you willing to let suffer until what you've taught begins to sink in? Do you try to get the padawan relieved of their comission? If so, how? Do you go through official channels, offending your officers, the jedi order, and possibly the force itself? Or do you take matters a bit more into your own hands, leaving them stranded on the battlefield the next time you're on a mission? How does your trooper view the force-using population?



4)You and your command have been ordered to organize and assist a resistance movement in occupied sith territory. After linking up with the rag-tag band of freedom fighters you are shocked to learn of several unsavory activities the resistance has engaged in to aquire resources. Selling captured imperials into slavery, narcotic making and distribution, and lynching of suspected imperial sympathizers are the tip of the iceberg. However they are remarkably disciplined and skilled fighters with intimate knowledge of the planet and it's inhabitants and would be invaluable in retaking the planet. What do you do?

Do you put a stop to their dirty dealings and possibly hamper your continued partnership? Do you turn a blind eye to their illicit activities for the sake of having skilled assistance? Do you inform your superiors, assuming they didn't know before they sent you in? Do you join them and hope to get in on some of the profits? How does your trooper react when being forced to work with some of the less pleasant elements in the galaxy?



5) You and your men have been fighting a holding action for the past two weeks while the bulk of a republic army falls back to regroup and (hopefully) mount a counter-offensive. They are several days behind schedule, and the morale of your men and your ammunition reserves are drying up fast. After a lull in the fighting two figures walk calmly towards your lines under a sign of truce. You recognize one of them as a famous Imperial general well known for his professionalism and a distinct LACK of sadism and brutality. You can't tell, but you also think the other person is carrying a lightsaber. The general states loudly that you are currently surrounded, and that he would like to hear your surrender terms. What do you do?

Do you give them a very strongly worded "no," or do you order your designated marksman to give them an even stronger objection and hold to the last extremity? Do you pretend to consider their offer, and try to drag out negotiations as long as possible and get you and your men some breathing space? What happens if the cavalry isn't coming? Do you try to see if you can punch through sith lines and escape, or do you surrender and sit out the rest of the war in a prison camp and spare you and your men? How hard and for how long will you oppose the sith, even in your darkest hour?



If you feel you need more information to make your decision, I will gladly provide it. I will also give you an individualized outcome for your decisions based on what your course of action was, and a quick roll of the dice -after all, the moment the choice becomes a sure thing is when it stops being fun, right?

#1, i reprimand my troops, then ask the villagers if they can afford to resupply us.for #2 i take the second option. for #3, my trooper has a mutual respect for the jedi, so i continue to teach group tactics. for #4, you gotta do what you gotta do, so i pay the rather unsavory details no attention and continue to do my job. for #5, i stall for time as much as possible in hopes that the republic bulk will show up right when we need them to ( hey, it worked in Star Wars: The Clone Wars!).

oh!why'd ya slice of mah hand?!

Re: Trooper Freestyle Morality Questions

1. Since they're under my command they will do as I say, and I say to try to barter with the villagers.

2. I wouldn't dare go into that city alone, so I would wait for reinforcements. That or get a ragtag group going and stage a rescue mission.

3. Try to teach the Padawan tactics, if it's no good to him, I'll simply ask for a replacement.

4. Try to stop as much of the slavery and lynching as possible, but still keep them on our side.

5. I shout a loud "Gfy!" and fight to the death, and hope the offensive is launched.

Re: Trooper Freestyle Morality Questions

Chosen One:

1) When you enter the village, the villagers welcome you and take you to their leader. You explain your situation to their leader and he agrees to barter with you. You and your men stay for the night. During the night, the villagers wake you and tell you that the sith are moving into this area in the next day. As you leave you and your squad feel a wave a sadness come over them...

2) Over the next few days you get restless and can't sleep at night.Soon the order is given not to take the city but to fall back. As you leave the outskirts of the city you see your lover blow you a kiss from a tower in the city and you prey that she will be alright.

3) When you talk to the jedi in training, your words bounce off him like bolts off a lightsaber. During the next mission he is killed by an enemy sniper, after disregarding your warning. You take his lightsaber from his body and return it to his master who strangely seems relived to hear of his student's death...   

4) After a month of working with the gang of resistance fighters, you intersept a message. The message is from the sith headquarters telling the leader of the gang to kill you and your squad after pumping you for information. After learning this, you and your squad kill the quote fighters....

5) As you stall the Sith Lord becomes impatient. After a week of stalling, the Sith Lord threatens to kill the general. One night, the Sith general ships past your lines and manages to find and wake you. After a few minutes of calming you down, the general says he wants to defect to the republic side of the war...


Fett_II

1) When you and your men enter the village, one of your new replacements gets reallu jumpy. As one villager suddenly rushes out her home to come meet you, the green trooper shoots and kills her. Most of the villagers won;t trade with you after that except for the local merchant, who ever over charges you for food and medicine. As you leave the village you notice that your rookie is missing. You return to the village after night fall to search for the trooper. You soon find his body thrown in a pile of trash near the outskirts of the village...

2) You manage to convince your squad to join you on the rescue mission. When you infiltrate the city you trigger some sort of alarm. You and your men are captured and thrown in with your love who just smiles at you...

3) After you explain tactical sense to the Padawan, he seems to understand his mistakes and apologizes for his recklessness. You and the Padawan develop a bond of sorts and he begins to look up to you. After two months in the field working with your squad he is taken off the line, making you the sole leader of your quad again.

4) As you confront their leader, he becomes furious. He then proceeds to tell you of the Sith's crimes against his people. After a long discussion, you and the leader reach an agreement to stop slaving the Sith...

5) The general acknowledges your bravery and replies "May the best man win." and returned to his duties. After 3 days of constant shelling, the general unleashes a massive attack on your outpost. With luck, you manage to find them off after 3 attacks. After a lag in the fighting again the Sith again attack you, this time overwhelming your men. As you fade in and out of contentious, you hear the sounds of Republic blasters. After passing out again you awake in a field hostpital...

Re: Trooper Freestyle Morality Questions

1) I'd dismiss my second in command's comment as just a joke but put down that line of thought immediately and try to barter with them. I'd do it this way so we wouldn't gain any resentment from the villagers so that they would hopefully be less likely to betray us/maybe even become allies on the inside

2) I'd wait until being ordered into the town but volunteer to be in the first group. I do this because I wouldn't want to compromise the mission in any way by getting caught behind enemy lines.

3) I would just try suggesting to him what our plans of action should be, not trying to hold his hand too much, hoping that he'll learn through experience.

4) I would notify my superiors to advise on the situation. Assuming they know about it and don't change anything I would try to convince the rebel leader that this isn't the best course of action and it may just cause the sith to come down harder on the citizens, but I wouldn't try to put a hard stop to their activities unless ordered to do so.

5) Try to stall them and drag out negotiations, if it looks like the counter offensive isn't happening then try to punch through the lines and make a fighting retreat

Re: Trooper Freestyle Morality Questions

1) You and your men advance toward the village casually, joking and talking with your weapons slung over your shoulders. As you near the village, you notice nobody is in the streets and you hear no noise. You hold up you hand as a signal to stop. You call your designated marksman over using the internal comlink in your helmet. You look through your range-finding binoculars and see no movement in the market area. You tell you sniper to find a high point over looking the village. As you and your men advance toward the village, weapons at the ready. As you enter the out skirts of the village, blaster bolts rip through the air and you and your squad go in, blasters blazing.

2) The order finally comes for the attack and you and your squad are placed at the front of the advance. As you fight your way through the town, you track your lover's position on your HUD. Soon you enter a building that the tracker says your lovers in. After serching Hig and low you find your love in a cell barely alive...

3) The Padawan, arrogantly rejects your advice, declaring that he is a jedi and doesn't need such tactics...Over the next few months your squad gets sent to a heavy war zone. During a particularly hectic battle, your squad and the Padawan get separated. You get the order to retreat and you still haven't found the padawan... Its time to decide: Do you leave the padawan to his fate, or do you go in after him?

4) Command tells you to over look the criminal activates of the group. After the planet is liberated, the rebel leader stop slaving sith.

5) As you stall, you get word from command that jedi have reinforced the counter offensive and that you should stall longer. After 3 weeks the offensive, doesn't come. You make your escape easily...maybe a little too easy.
