If they choose to assist the baron in restoration of King Richard’s power, there will be several benefits as well as many negative consequences. The mission of Robin Hood and his Merry Men is highly dangerous, and is made even more treacherous with the increase of spies sent by King John. Failure of the plan would lead to some very grave consequences and retribution would be quick, painful, and widespread.
Pros
King Richard would have the ability to respond to the needs and concerns of the peasants
The Sheriff’s threat will be lessened since he won’t be in complete power any more
With everything being done on a fairer scale, there would be no need any more to rob the rich to give to the poor
Cons
Robin Hood’s plan would be extremely dangerous and the retributions from the King and the Sheriff would be devastating
There would be great risk to all of the bands’ objectives and desires
The Barons and the King most likely cannot be trusted
8) Should they try and end the campaign by killing the sheriff? Why or why not?
No, I don’t feel that murder is the solution. Robin has thought about this course of action so that the feud can end, however, he decided against it because it wouldn’t lead to improving matters, only revenge and personal satisfaction. The sheriff would only be replaced, and perhaps his replacement would be even worse and he would be pushing for revenge against the Merry Men.
