I remember with fondness an animist named Fiorella. She was a what we would call a real
pacifist, and utilised her skills competantly to fend of attacks on herself and her friends
neither relying on divine protection excessively or relying upon a pacifistic mantle. indeed
it did not exist at the time.
From what I learnt from the likes of her and animists like Lugonn was that the decompose
skill is the last resort. Immensely powerful, it is probably found near the top range of the
naturalism ability and preceeded by many other potent defences, or non fatal attacking
abilities that in the very distant past... and even now COULD be used to prevent bloodshed.
Surely decompose should only be used when all other means have failed... abilities like
forest eject, forest command, and the other 20 odd abillities in between never seem to be
used anymore. It is probably too great a temptation to reach for the decompose command.
