Kind of a Player Character move to make, honestly. "No no, that ugly tactic goes against my personal scruples. Let's go start an international incident and potentially a years-long war instead."

Stories about being arrested for things you did not do.

4th Edition game, playing as an Elf Assassin around the time the book that introduced them came out. Town mayor gets killed so guess who ends up in jail first?

Seems I wasn't the only Elf walking around like an Assassins creed character in a town that was mostly humans and dwarves, so I was profiled. They let me go after the Vice-Mayor was found dead the same way.

To be honest, "you're all locked up for a crime yoi did/did not commit" is one of my go-to campaign starters.

Well it does work for The Elder Scrolls.

Was playing a Victorian-set campaign, and one of the other players was a high-profile female assassin. She killed a few people who were part of a Mysterious Covert Organization, but all that the police knew was that they'd all been stabbed. They thought there was a serial killer on the loose, and due to a running joke in the game the GM made me the prime suspect.(My character was an aristocratic fencing master.)

He ended up pushing things a little far with the joke, too the point that he stopped the train we were on to have ANOTHER police inspection (in what was perhaps the first time he WASN'T railroading us) where the rest of the party was just standing around while I was interrogated for like the third time that session. It ended pretty abruptly when I told the inspector to let us go, because if I really WAS the person he claimed I was then he didn't bring nearly enough men. He started posturing about threatening an officer, and I asked if he would like to find out whether he'd brought enough or not.

He didn't.

In the game I play on Tuesdays, our entire party has been arrested at least 6 times because of the actions of two different PCs on two different occasions. We're probably going to be arrested once we return to the city again.
In-Character we are SO tired of being treated like criminals when we're trying to be the good guys. Out-of-charater it's hilarious lol

On the flip side of "Let's start an international incident" comes, "Welcome to a plot hook. Here is the starting rail I've put you on. Find the fix for the problem."

Some friends were running a game where one of the players was being increasingly silly (in the not-fun way that derails things for everyone else.) He actually did end up causing an international incident. The party flipped in him and all testified against him at the trial, and the character was executed for crimes against the indigenous people.

"We are not Barbarians" "Ahem" so... Any story about how they talk about 'barbarians' or any other class in a bad way?

My goblin henchman for my rogue complained about being profiled against when he was brought up on bogus charges for loitering in a dwarven city.
