    You’re a slave to the game. Go free yourself, uninstall the game and delete your account and never return to the forums. Go be free somewhere else please.

    Maybe the Shai have added too much of a pink sugary coating to the game in the eyes of many, but this is still the same game that has war devastated countries, dark gods extending their influence across the world, cults offering blood sacrifices to said gods, and where the players ally themselves with the most evil groups around if it will help them with their objective. Star's End, a place where the Player Character is the errand person for 3 different evil factions, was a good prelude to O'dyllita.

    Once the territory is released here, read the story and it'll make more sense as to why the Ahib are friendly. Not saying they're good people, just that it makes sense they're friendly.

    Slavery existing in a setting doesn't equate to that setting promoting the idea of slavery. If you have a problem with it on a moral level, then absolutely choose dialogue options to voice your dislike of it from your perspective of the story (if they exist). But many fictional settings have slavery as an element, such as: TES (Morrowind), Dragon Age, Game of Thrones, Divinity: Original Sin, Star Wars, games set in the Conan the Barbarian universe, and many many others.

    It existing isn't an issue unless the developers are outright saying: "Slavery is great, we're gonna promote it." Which PA has never done. Sometimes a setting has some darker and more disagreeable elements, as people here have pointed out. One king abducted various children and sacrificed dozens and dozens of them to try to obtain immortality in BDO's lore. That existing doesn't mean that PA thinks sacrificing children is a good idea, it just means that it's something bad that happened, because if they're going to tell a story that seems plausible within the setting then we have to assume that not everyone is going to be nice.

    But using Slaves as a labor force to gather resources for you in BDO, does promote slavery .

    But you're not using slaves? I don't know how workers will be in O'dyllita, but in the rest of the world it's explained. You give them housing and they're paid by the town for the work they do for you.

    I don't think you should keep on pretending that they don't exist, and face the truth, they are turning you in to a Slave owner in O'dylitta expansion.

    Which i think is very wrong.

    those arent slaves, are just characters in a story.
    how can you compare characters with real people?
    you are either a troll or somebody that should go to a shrink.

    I mean if you guys seriusly have a problem with this and are not just attention seeking than the one thing i rly wonder about is howcome it has never bothered you that your characters are basicly mass murders commiting murder left and right on a scale of genocide. I am pretty sure most have already caused a deathtool of a couple 100s of thausands if not millions of humans and members of other species including even children(poor red orc children lifes matter) and the destruction of countless tribal villages and settlments accros the world of black desert so adding slavery to that list of crimes again humanty and other species wont change much.
    And why do you do it, the simple answer is for profit:)

    NPC's will respawn, but slaves will stay in their collars forever, unless we free them!

    Given the Vedir are confident enough in themselves and their combat abilities to have hosiery for leg coverage in battle (outfits), there are probably human males who go there voluntarily to check them out and get taken. As for the others, whether they are captured soldiers from Calpheon, Dreighan or merchants who met an unexptected end to their trading, bettter a slave to Vedir beauty than being in an Orc prison or the Iron Mines. We can't free them, either.

    It's not so romantic if you look at this picture, where White, Black Males and Females, are portrayed as slaves, shivering in fear, and some even getting beaten by an NPC:

    Why the heck do we even talk about slaves?! its a game, a virtual world where you can do whatever you want and maybe live your dream.
    Also its part of history what made us today the world we are, always great things had suffering at their base, a hard truth.
    So when the hell do we get some bad guys dark elf males?! i dont want to see these princes girls, they dont even seem evil enough, at least for me!

    Characters in a story that portraying slaves, are slaves.
    This is a Role Playing game, so if you employ them, you do become a slave owner - in a game - not in real life.

    But if the game is forcing you down a story line to become Slave owner - than you are not as free as you think you are in the game, right?
    So shouldn't there be an option to oppose Slavery too, instead of accepting it? Than you can live your dream, right?
