Change a characters death, but unavoidably cause someone else to die.

Lets say that hypothetically that Telltale gives the choice after completing all the episodes to go back and change/stop a death but due to Newton's Third law; "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction" someone else must replace that person death.

What this basically means is that if you save a person, someone who is in the same area must die to replace that persons death. So lets say you save Carley, as a result at random;
- Ben could be shot
- Lily could be stopped but shoots herself in the process
- Kenny could move in the way and get shot
- Duck or Katjaa could be hit by a stray bullet.

One of those 5 must die right there and then for saving Carley but you don't know who. For Larry either Kenny or Lily must die. etc etc.

You can expand your thinking on some situations so for the Doug/Carley scene you can save both but that would mean one of the people outside the Pharmacy would die by going the wrong way etc etc.

Note: Clem, Lee and Walking Dead tv stars will have plot shields meaning that they are unaffected by your choice and can not die.

So would you like to see something like this at the end? Whose death would you change? Or would you not change it because of the possible consequences?

  • Scenario I thought of:

    Carley: "You think you're some tough bitch, don't you? Like nothing can hurt you. But, you're just a scared little girl. Get the fuck over it. Take a page from Lee's book and try helping somebody for once."
    *Kenny deals with the walker, Lilly takes a few steps back*
    Kenny: "Now, what's the fuck the prob-"
    Lilly: "Everyone, back the fuck off!!"
    *Lilly has her gun drawn, pointing towards the group*
    Lilly: "Now I know one of you (Carley or Ben) betrayed us! We can't let someone who endangers our group left alive! Now, Lee tell me! Who did it!!"

    There you are given the option to chose who you think did it. You can either say it was Ben or Carley. Depending on your relationship with Lilly you can say it was yourself: if she likes you she'll say there was no way it was you, if she doesn't like you she'll shoot you in the chest. You'll live the shot but you'll need immediate help and nearly die. You may also try to talk her down: if she likes you you can make her stop, if she doesn't like you she wont stop.

  • Kill Clem's ass and keep Lee alive.

    Just kidding. I'd kill everyone to keep them both alive.

    I can imagine this: You and 95% percent of players let Ben's limited brain be decorated across the RV :D

    Poor Ben might as well punch his own ticket before getting out of the RV...

    95% is too high, there'd be probably 80% with the other 20% choosing Carley to get shot to see what happens. :D

  • As much as I hate it, I'm going to keep my friends Ben, Doug, and Kenny dead. Omid and Christa don't deserve to die, and Lilly was just in a really bad place as much as I hated her. Doug did the noble thing and sacrificed himself. Ben wanted to die, and Kenny's hope was gone.

  • @Demopan said: Save Mark, Kill Vernon

    I don't think that's exactly logical. It's saving somebody, but causing another to die in that exact same minute/hour or something. That's like saying you'd save Lincoln and get Al Capone killed.

  • When Ben falls from the balcony he is not impaled, but does have some cracked bones and heavy bruising. Omid is leaning too close to the edge of the rooftop and falls, impaling himself on the railing. Kenny stays behind to be with Omid. Lee and Ben get away.

    ...I like Omid, but I like Ben more.

  • Seems very realistic to me... Just cause you want to save someone's life, doesn't automatically make them safe.

    My choice would be to take the blame on supplies being stolen. Since I helped Kenny, she'll shoot me. It's a big risk, but if means that no one else ends up dying, well then, that's the way it goes.
