Human lives are casually thrown away, but killing a robot is considered murder.murder.
** Only human enemies are considered morally right to kill. They are all bandits who explicitly murder even people who give them money to LeaveNoWitnesses or otherwise despicable people. Running away from them is considered craven. Animals are merely hungry so running away or pacifying them with food is preferred but acceptable to kill in self defense. Killing undead is highly blasphemous and a terrible idea, given that they were raised by the gods to carry out a role too important to trust to the living. Destroying them will cause major problems in the world.
