One time, after my party wiped out a couple of vampires, I still got the basic "Stay away from me scum" from some on-looking pedestrians. I want both admiration and fear. It's amazing that BGI had more of this. For example, in the Taverns of BGI, all of the pedestrians would be talking about some "unknown" hero.
