Saying ‘no‘ is hardest.
P. S. It’s not just me who has this feeling, is it? Apparently it’s so frustrating. And while I already did, like, maybe half quests, I saw literally only one case where it was kinda addressed - there was a woman who wanted those goblins(?) work in her mine and a dude who wanted to free them so he even released some curse that I had to deal with. Ah, and worst case I met so far was in Coldharbor with lamias - apparently local elves just don’t like ‘those beasts’, end of story. At least story allowed me to chose sides. Most of the rest cases aren’t even discussed.
