I'm a little stuck on the Viconia encounter, I don't want to kill her but I also don't want Ajantis getting moody because I didn't hand her over to be slaughtered over an apparent murder which I know nothing about. So for now I'll stay away from that area. Plus I kinda like Viconia....if only her alignment wasn't evil. :(
What I normally do with Viconia, if my party is good-aligned, is to rescue her, take her in and then go back to the Friendly Arm Inn and drop her off, so that I can pick her up later if need be. I do that with most characters I meet if my party isn't full -- keeping them in the Friendly Arm is handy if you need somebody in a pinch. Bear in mind, though, that if your reputation is above 18 when you drop evil characters off, they will walk off into the sunset, never to be seen again, just as good aligned would walk off if your reputation was very low.
