Unfortunately the AI for the guards isn't good enough yet to distinguish 'innocent' from intent' I'm not sure it will ever be possible as it could open up 1000XP builds that attack whenever / whereever they want. Make new - attack - throw away - rinse and repeat.
Ask in the help channel if they can help for your losses - otherwise see my reply to your post.
Thod/Theodum are the OOC/IC leaders of the Emerald Lodge - a neutral settlement in the center of the mal that tries to the first to explore the Emerald Spire - should that part of the game ever become available. We have a strong in game and out of game relationship with the Pathfinder Society.
We welcome both hard core players as well as casual players with or without tabletop experience. We have a strong group in Europe and are slowly expanding into the US. We are predominately PvE as our neutral political stance means that we tend to use PvP only in self-defence. We are not anti-PVP - but expect limited PvP opportunity with us.
