1 . do you throw coins at them ( or give them to them)

2 . how much do you give them?

3 . do you like beggars ?

4 . do you think all the beggars are frauds? *

_____________

1 . yes , often i will give them a coin , even most of my evil chracters take pity on them

2 . i roleplay that 2/ 5 septim coins exist becaue oherwise the currency would be in total meltdown . usually i give them a couple of coins

3 . some , like wretched aia , but others i dislike because they are moderatrly obsessive

4 . yup , because everytime you talk about money they get all greasy and old " belssing of mystara upon..yeeeee"
"heard any rumours"

* puts on normal voice*

"saw a mudcrab by the water yesterday , awful creatures"

*you leave*

"one more coin , and i can buy a pair of shoesss!"

I used to but eventually I had given them enough for them to buy their own mansions, so I stopped and just gave them bread, ale, a cloth and bear pelt smile.gif

I used to give them three septims or so each time.

I have no problem with them in general. They donīt bug me or anything (forced conversation)

As they change their voice from weak to strong every so often, Iīd say something fishy is going on. I think theyīre all actually millionaires who dress up as beggars to collect free money. This happens irl so why not in Tamriel? laugh.gif

1 . do you throw coins at them ( or give them to them)


Depends on the character. I had a Paladin a few years back (Dyan phor a'Cauz) who always gave money to beggars. She is a noble do-gooder. Then one day she met a particularly healthy-looking bum, and refused to help him. Dyan got to the point that she was sick of being "the one". Why does she have to be the one who helps everybody, where is the NPC whose willing to help her as she travels about, saving Cyrodiil from ruin?

Other characters of mine don't give beggars any coin. They'll just ignore 'em. Dyan was the one (for awhile) who basically helped every bum she came in contact with.

QUOTE

2 . how much do you give them?


If my chars. give them anything, they'll usually splurge. They won't just give a "single coiiiin", instead they move on to the Persuasion mini-game, which offers dozens more gold.

The gold actually never gets spent, by the way. From what I've seen, dead beggars still happen to have all the gold given to them over time. blink.gif

QUOTE

3 . do you like beggars ?


Real-life or in the game? biggrin.gif

In the game, I don't like or hate 'em. Again, this depends on the character, I personally don't have an opinion, other than the fact that beggars fill out the bottom niche of Tamriellic society. If there weren't any beggars in Tamriel, something would be missing.

In real-life I like some, and will help some, but only if they're seriously wounded, or if they're doing something creative. Able-bodied beggars who play an instrument or recite poetry for instance (badly or well, I don't care) are at least doing something other than just sitting around, and I appreciate this.

I've been homeless myself, so I've seen both sides of this sort of reality. I know how tough it is, but I also know some people like being homeless. Some are homeless by choice. But if they're not doing something with their time (or seriously maimed/disfigured) they're not getting a 'single coin' from me. indifferent.gif

QUOTE

4 . do you think all the beggars are frauds? *


Haha where do you come up with these topics, flower? laugh.gif

One of my characters kinda does. Kahreem of Weet is a thief whose been dealing with beggars on and off ever since joining the TG. He does get suspicious whenever a beggar changes his/her voice from peasantry to commoner.

I am currently playing an assassin in Skyrim who always gives money to beggars. It makes it easier for her to con merchants and guards, and gets her better prices on things. Enlightened self-interest is the force that holds the universe together.

1. Occasionally, but not too often.




2. A Septim. Wait...no, make that two septims. I feel like livin' it up.




3. They're alright. They got some funny names though. The funniest beggar name I saw was Ragbag Buntara rollinglaugh.gif



4. Yes, they all frauds mad.gif I've given every beggar in Cyrodiil and skyrim enough money to buy every house for sale, AND THEY ASK ME FOR MORE!

Heh Yep that's me, flowerbooom: I'm a pusher of boundaries. I like going off-topic a bit and sharing things about real-life, and what better place to do it but at Chorrol?

Off-offtopic: so I've been here over a year. I've seen more movement in the OB sections in the past couple days than I've seen all the past year. laugh.gif

That's the spirit!

I've tried to recruit various members from that 'other' forum to Chorrol, but mostly people don't take the bait. SubRosa actually suggested I become a member here way back in 2009, but I didn't show up until last year. Dang, I wish I had listened to her back then.

I just wanted to share something about the beggars in Bruma smile.gif

They always ask Lothran for "just one coin" and now on his last day on patrol he decided to check their coin purses to see if they really needed it. Turns out Fetid had 146 gold coins in his, and Jorck had riches exceeding 400 coins! ohmy.gif

So next time you see one of the beggars in Bruma, donīt bother with their pleas and for godīs sake donīt pity them. They have enough gold to live at Jerall View if they wanted cool.gif

Mirocu, I know!

Buffy routinely checks several of the beggars.

Mr 'I'm savin' for some med'cine' has loads of gold that Buffy has given him as well as the several healing and curative potions she has given him as well.

And Miss 'One more coin and I kin git me a pair of shoes' also has plenty of coins and scads of shoes - all courtesy of you-know-who!

Exactly. tHey don't actually spend their coin in the vanilla game; hence they never get that 'pair of shoes' or 'help their children'.

Wow 400 coins. See that's what happens when you have just one character since 2007, I suppose.
