Going with a topic on this one because there are a few ideas/fixes, and others may have found more to list here.
BUG: when slain, a dead suicide mouse still occupies 1 of my 2 mouse slots. had to give to a humgii to train a new one
IDEA: detonation message
Reason 1: every other area skill gives the user some way of knowing whether it worked. This is relevant because to be of any use in a raid or otherwise, we need to know when we're able to educate a new mouse (thanks to the limit of 2).
Reason 2: nearly every other loyal I can think of gives a message when it has been slain or ceases to exist.
Fulfilling its grim purpose, a suicide mouse has detonated its (dusty/entangling/concussive/smoky/dizzying) payload in your service.
Mouse162905, your loyal companion, has been slain by itself.
IDEA: A command to locate loyal mice, in the event their target leaves the area and you need to collect existing mice to pursue or use them again
Syntax could be MICE. May also add an unforceable MOUSE RECALL command to have them scuttle back if within appropriate range.
Other ideas welcome. Anything to improve our trans pranks skill.
