Ok, There are a few problems I would like to addres. First, the differance between character knowlage and player knowlage. I play alot with alot of expeirenced players and we run into this alot. We all know that the succubus will kill us if we sleep with her, but our characters however do not. (unless we make the appropriate knowlage check, a reason why wizards are great they CAN know as much as the player). A player is going to know off the bat that it is a ploy for plot development. A character is goingto think that its a great big ugly spider ready to kill them. Second, and I dont mean to be too harsh here but, COULD YOU MAKE THE PLOT DEVELOPMENT ANY MORE OBVIOUS!!!!!! I mean if I were playing I would just blow off the spider or kill it just to spite the DM for making such an obvious attempt to create a storyline. Point being, your players should have no choice or multiple choices. Go to Comment

Hehehehehe, my point was to say that probably none of the party members would be quite in tune with the players to realize "we are going to get more XP from doing this mission that we have absolutly no reason to go on. Other than there is this spider that wants us to go on, but from rumours I have heard usually spiders arent very nice" My point being that your characters are not being themselves, the players are being themselves, your characters know that more XP lies within the mages lair, but they also realise there is alot more danger involved and they have no obligation to do otherwise. I think that I have enjoyed just sitting here listening to you get steamed about something so trivial when I am trying to voice my opinion which not being humble here at all kinda makes alot more sense than yours Echo. Now think, if you were in their position looking at a huge spider and its asking you to go risk your ouwn neck to save its babies for.... lets see here probably gold. I personally wouldnt do it. WHAT KIND OF TREASURE WOULD A SPIDER HAVE ANYWAY. WHAT WOULD IT HAVE THAT I WOULD WANT FOR GOODNESS SAKES.
Another thing killing somthing just because its evil does not make much sense to an expierienced gamer. While yes the orcs in the bar are undoubtably evil just because they are doesnt mean you attack them. See and this is where we go into the area that is tricky, to some killing orcs might be a bad thing, like for the orcs example. But many who dispise orcs would say that you are a hero. Its all from a certain point of veiw. See a damsel in distress makes a great plot if by some chance the damsel is killed by a vampire and comes back to kill you. see a simple plot can be made into a wonderful plot. by the way have you only played as good characters or DMed groups of good characters, cuz I have played in a campaign woth all evil people and damn was that fun, just killing stuff because you can is great.
