In all seriousness; if you could destroy corpses as a general mechanic you'd pretty much invalidate the raise dead. Anyone who didn't hold raise dead in their hand could just go around hoovering up corpses.

That depends on the chances of destroying the corpse; and would you really attack a corpse instead of attacking the enemy?

I would if it were near my wizard and/or powerful enough that I wouldn't be able to survive it coming back... those undead dragons in the original chaos were a lethal combination.

True, but I'd still like to see it as a mechanic.

Maybe a spell; "Purge" - remove three corpses from the arena.

At the very least, rats and carnivorous creatures should be able to eat the corpses. :mrgreen:

I am okay with this so long as wizards can also eat corpses.

Well, they should at least try. Imagine a wizard riding an elephant, battle robes on, dual wielding swords, with the leg of a dwarf sticking out of their mouth.
