Lantra, my apologies, I've never meant any offence throughout this thread. I didn't even mention what games you play, I was merely following on from the idea of firing Boombats at Outlaws.
Boombats eat nitroroots, glyceringrass and sulphur. It would be an evolutionary irregularity for them not to use this for explosive potential, and though I see that Stranger is using Boombats for his own ends rather than theirs, it can easily be said that killing a sentient, intelligent creature is far worse than killing a mere animal (not necessary my views).
OWI have tried to make it known that they've never considered Glukkons, Sligs or Outlaws as being ‘bad’, just different species with their own views, cultures, history and needs. Incapacitating them peacefully is clearly a better reflection of your Quarma, and if you're firing explosive bats, then this is pretty tricky. If you want to be good, don't use Boombats. It's not as if you couldn't play through the last three games being hack-happy and crunching Mudokons left, right and centre.
EDIT: Not very many bees die when they sting something, so Stingbees are by no means necessarily in danger.
