A separate note on Vorpal Rat And Arthur's Knights The 1st encounter I forget to kill them. Then again, with one combat armor in the party plus the normal middle game equipments... I am not sure I can kill them. The 2nd encounter, I let the Vorpal Rat kill them. If I can loot those bodies, I am going to get access to the highest level loot: gatling laser for example. And that is before I get to Navarro/San Francisco. Problem is: Vorpal Rat. Some of the time Myron's needler pistol can score 1 or 2 dmg. Luckily, we have Sulik who can hit 3 times per turn and averageing 2.5 dmg each hit. A strange thing is that grenades can score some damage: from the lowliest Molotov to Pulse grenade. problem is Sulik is close to the rat so that is no can do. In order to kill this Rat without using the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, we are going in for a lengthy fight. Very lengthy. I am using all the top secret tricks on this rat.
