Killing innocent people without gaining evil points
Note: You must be good to do this trick. If you want to buy a place but do not want the evil points awarded for killing the owner, first go the person in question and tell them to follow you. Take them to any area with enemies. You may have to destroy a couple to get the people to the correct location because they will not follow you once they see an enemy. After that, just let the creature kill the innocent person. The person is now dead and you will not be blamed.
