I don't care what gets renamed, as long as the same word 'banish' isn't used for monster deletion and monster teleportation. I can't think of a better synonym for monster deletion assuming we can't use genocide for sensitivity reasons. Do you have any good suggestions for what to rename monster deletion?

"Deletion" could be interpreted as teleport level because you don't get any XP from them. Monsters can do that to you, so you should be able to do that to monsters. Problem with it is more that you do it in mass every time, there is no teleport level only one monster. Wording is a difficult one since there is already teleport level which teleports player, not monsters.

Teleport race from level and teleport area from level? Maybe also teleport monster from level as single-monster equal of that one (like teleport other, but removes from level and requires more mana).

That would create another conflict with priest spells, there is Annihilation which is bolt-spell that affects living (weak spell for its cost, needs to be redone).

That's a real shame as it seems very appropriate.

Rename Annihilation to Eradicate and make it more powerful (e.g. flat 300 damage/cast against any target, instead of the current "only living targets" restriction). Then you can use Annihilate for genocide effects.

Some choices:

Extinction
Elimination
Exclusion
Explusion
Extermination
Abolishment
Eradication


That's just a quick check with a thesaurus. Of those, I think I like "extermination" the most.
