Curethan has a point at the moment. As opposed to other "evil" acts, the morality of manipulation can be largely dependent on the end result of said manipulation. If everything turns out for the best, and Khellus saves the world, then hardly anyone could view him more harshly than just "the lesser of all evils."

If someone is manipulated into say... sacrificing their life for instance, when that sacrifice isn't required, but then everything turns out &quot;for the best&quot; where would it stand on the morality scale? <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> Manipulation can lead to good and positive outcomes, but it is still manipulation.
