Ethical questions raised by working on Five Parsecs From Home

Some things that are possible under these rules, if the dice come up just right:


An emotionless super soldier assassin gets a letter from mom.

A combat droid and a religious fanatic become friends.

A mutant trying to find true love.

A mentally unhinged hacker prone to running off in any odd direction.



Clearly this raises important ethical questions about the nature of man and whether it's okay to shoot bounty hunters on sight, or you should wait until you know if they're after you specifically.
