I think a conflict group for the bats would be interesting. Ideally I'd like the bats to be pretty nonchalant about most things and just be around minding their own business. They wouldn't have sided with anyone against the 'evil' clan of tigers back in the day. So in a way they're kind of like the hyenas on TPC, only instead of being evil-leaning, they're good-leaning neutral.
But yeah. Two flying groups could have some conflict. The bats are strictly non-spritual/religious, and if the owls are? That creates enough conflict in real life. Or, the bats have a strict caste system and some might get discriminated against by their own kind. Owls might now like that. And the bats have the 'arranged mating' thing; just like 'arranged marriages' but, bats don't mate for life.. so it's not a marriage.
Otherwise, they could just not like each other, I dunno. XD
For the record, I don't think I'm going to try and start up a bat group. Others obviously are more than welcome to try, but I don't have the time, energy, or patience to try to start up another group on another MUCK.
For the record, I love the idea of a bird-of-prey group. I would be very surprised if there were ever enough of any specific species (such as golden eagles) to get a species-specific group, but even birds of differing feathers should stick together!
