The Gazers' right to exist
alhoon posted a topic in Geneforge Series - Original SeriesSplitting off a discussion from other things, I would like to talk about Gazers and their right to exist. Another poster put forward some things that I disagree with, but I would like to discuss. What do you think of Gazers? Can they be sane? Should they be allowed to exist or they should be eradicated on sight? Do all of them think they're above any kind of law, human, drakon, Gazer? Does their idea of superiority (whether they can accept to operate within society and laws) make them viable to kill on sight? And of course: Should Gazers be transformed in a way to be able to Shape? We learn that Gazers can procreate naturally and they can use some forms of magic. There are a very few serviles that have been altered to be able to shape. Perhaps the same can be done for Gazers. Personally I think they have the right to exist and killed on individual basis only if they prove to be a threat to society. That they could be dangerous to humans that trespass in their lands is not at all reason for eradication. Lions do the same. Mama-bears the same. Territoriality doesn't mean (IMO) that they are by default insane or dangerous. Yes, many Gazers and Eyebeasts are dangerous but I think it's clearly immoral to kill a whole race of sentient creatures because they are an inconvenience. Also, I support a controlled research on a specialized geneforge that would allow one Gazer or two to learn how to Shape. Then if these Gazers become many-eyed Monarchs trying to eradicate everything in the world, we proceed from there.
