In the Neverwinter Nights game, the city of Neverwinter is suffering from a plague called the Wailing Death. In one corner of the city, there's a noblewoman named Formosa who wants you to kill the wizard Meldanen and steal the key to his warehouse so that she can redistribute his possessions to the poor. Not that unusual a mission, but her Marxist rhetoric ticked me off, so when I returned (after acquiring the key, but not killing the wizard), the scene proceeded as follows:
Formosa: So you have returned, my lady. Do you have news?Funny that you get the 5 point demerit for the threat, rather than for actually killing her...
Teddie Irvine [my character]: I have the key for Meldanen's warehouse.
Formosa: Allow me to see it... Yes, this is the one. I can detect the counterspells on it. Bless you madam. The city will be thanking the gods for you in the days to come.
Formosa: What of Meldanen, himself? What of the sorceror?
Teddie: He lives, and I do not intend to kill him.
Formosa: As you wish, madam. The people may fear Meldanen's retribution and fear to enter the warehouse... hopefully I can change their mind.
Formosa: As promised, here is the necklace. I know it is not much, but hopefully it will suffice.
Teddie: No. Hand over more, or I'll see how much your teeth are worth.
Your actions have shifted your alignment 5 point(s) towards evil.
Formosa: I see. Threats, is it? This is how you respond to a reward, well intended? Or do you simply look on this as some form of back-alley bargaining?
Formosa: Regardless, I won't stand for it. I offered you a reward for your good service and I would hope that you'd accept it gracefully.
Teddie: Hah! Time for you to die, I guess!
Formosa: Treacherous fool! I'll fight you if I must!
Formosa casting unknown spell.
Teddie Irvine attacks Formosa *hit* (16 + 8 = 24)

Any task that Formosa might have wanted completed has been indefinitely postponed. She is now dead.
