LightRaiders should only kill when they have to, goblins and orcs for sure, and other DCs if they must. Face it, the Muk is the least physically dangerous Dark Creature. But the Muk would be a hapless victim in this instance. A couple barrels of Muk-tainted mud could be a good substitute. If in a battle, firing the Loadstones should be okay. Joe R.
