I realise in the 41st millenium life is cheap and sometimes an imperial citizen's duty is to die for his lord's cause. However in the few 40k rpg games I've played in it seems groups tend to end 3/4 of conversations with a killing blow and a laugh from all the players at the table. It just seems so wasteful.
I was wondering if anyone else's group seems to be too quick to deal out death to their subordinates or fairly harmless npcs as well as what their thoughts were on the subject. Also, if anyone has a funny story about the unnessisary death of an npc feel free to share!
