    I'm willing to accept that they will defend their territory however, especially if theres alot of them around and they feel more secure with charging a magic wielding avatar :p

    But you'd really have to annoy them or walk in their nest :)

    btw did you seriously search for : baby alligator biting finger ? :p

    I think it was, "giving baby alligator the finger" and just happened to show what the alligator did about it ;)

    Unless there is an over abundance of them. In that case you are thinning the herd and restoring the balance.. If an Avatar held them in captivity, killed them to turn them into slippers then they would probably frown. However selling the said slippers at a profit would make the goddess of commerce extremely happy.

    Apparently, if I change my name to Baby Baron Drocis Fondorlatos, approximately 50% of the population will no longer want to kill me. :)

    What an odd world we live in. I wonder if there's a way to reduce that number even further. Baby Baron Veteran Puppy Kitten Drocis Fondorlatos...

    I've got a Young Stag that repops by Aldwater's south exit near my house. Free animal hide and venison every visit!

    What bugs me is in the Perennial Trail random encounters with sheep there are "Herding Dogs" which attack you on sight, even when you have no weapons out and are just harvesting cotton and ores.

    As an addition to rediculous requests (coconut bra supporter), I request that we be allowed to tame and release baby crocodiles into our hot tubs.

    Once released they go against your NPC count in your house and not against your pet count.

    Ill be thoroughly satisified if this requests is either granted or completely ignored.

    By the way, we need real baby animals in the game. This is just a small crocodile, not a baby. We need does, bear cubs, wolf pups, calves, chicks, lambs, etc. (Just so we can kill them!)

    The birds are actually often attacking the baby gators, they've grown quite accustomed with some birds there is a kind of territory thing going on, once the bird realises the croc is too big to hunt often it will also be too slow to catch the bird so the bird just sits on the croc (literally) and steals some of his prey.

    That bird was probably just saying right there "you can't catch me you better accept I steal some of the fish"

    I think you guys are harsh for turning Lady Kara's requests into derision. Not obnoxious because you are probably right in that this is a superfluous kind of request, but I think you'd have to also apologize for saying or thinking that its a ridiculous request.

    In fact many of you have grown accustomed to this kind of attitude and it shows up sporadically, sometimes consciously, sometimes subconsciously... gamergate rings a bell ?

    I understand many here, and in the dev team who are SICK AND TIRED of religious moral dogma and other matrix type elements that have invaded our society. We often use the devil symbol with our hands to symbolize "rock on" or the famous "hang it loose" and it means be tolerant because you're lucky to emancipate yourself from all this pile of dung with the devils blessings (no offense to religious people, religous thinking can be a good guide for relationships, but the dogma is as wrong as killing baby animals in all impunity, especially with the oracle watching)

    You see that is the sometimes fatal error many make while trying to get away from religion and/or an excess of pragmatism. Lets face it, most are agnostic and do not worship satan and lucifer... but they still use the symbols its a kind of underground and fight club like statement.

    But what if Satan/Lucifer also has a feminine side or counterpart, well you can bet that all things balance themselves in life and you better pay attention to both sides of the equation. It's a delicate osmosis... we have ALOT of feminine players on here.

    I see Kara's request as a manifestation of this Goddess, literally.

    Freedom, but responsibility. Creativity, but patience.

    The game must NOT teach aberrant behavior by design, this is 2015 and I REFUSE to belong with a group that has not transcended these basic realisations.

    It's even more important than that, the game still has alot of raw edges and we tend to say "well its functional, what do you want more its pre-alpha" but in reality often its easy as saying scissors and the root of the issue is healed without any harm to anyones playstyle.

    That if you want to put it in laymans term, would be like insulting Satan's bride, then playing russian roulette by his blessings.

    I've invested time and energy, soul and spirit into this project and I'm not going to let it happen.

    I agree with Kara Brae in the opening post. Good post.

    Its a semantics thing. Don't call it baby anything. Call it 'West Abundis Crocodile' or 'Eylo Crocodile' or ' Fogladden Crocodile' or "Perennial Crocodile' etc. etc. etc. after place names.

    'Baby, Small, Medium, Large' is just ...... non-creative.

    I just know that if we called him 'Extra Large Fondorlatos' that yes definitely the PVP desire would go to 100%
