Raiding

I know there is the old fashioned style of raids done in Darklands, gold food and women for example, but are raids done to say steal other kindred creatures?

I can imagine some kindreds would want to steal eggs or young creatures to possibly use or turn a profit.

Some are area effect spells so don't need a target as such, Hell pit is an example, you're just causing something on the ground to happen.
