what I do is.. I drop 1 gold... wait for them to get off their horse than steal it... I hide away, change clothing and if they come to me and kill me then its metagaming...
I seem to have proven my point.
Wait a minute, bandits never said "MONEY". They said give everything then slashed you.
If they had only been that clear with me. Bandits would never tell me what they really wanted from me, which usually ended up with one of us dead.
-Money or life?
-What do you mean? I can chose whether to keep my money or to keep my life?
-*Slash* MONEY OR LIFE
-I don't understand!
Today, finding out what the bandits want is easy, because they've composed three words that explains it perfectly: "500 or die".
