...one last point:

Ok you have created a character and imbued him/her with "life" and a set of imposed moral code...you are now 'god'. 'god' has no restrictions and can manipulate a character as you see fit...think of yourself as zeus with his little chessboard...free to make them move and do as you please. kill the kids, rape the harlots, milk the goats with your mouth...you are omnipotent and above such petty mortal restrictions. oh sure...maybe THEY wouldn't tie a rock to a kitten and throw it in a lava-pool...but as 'god' you get to make them do whatever you whim. I suggest you role-play 'god'.
