Rat swarms, do they count as me killing someone?

Mission 1, inside a manor, rats behind a door If I release these rats, will it count as me killing the guards in the nearby area?

Sure does
The mind twist and bends to deal with the horrors of everyday life...sometimes it just snaps!

Even though technically the rats attacked them? Guess I won't be able to get the items inside unless I get rid of the guards somehow.

put their unconscious bodies on a table or something; don't leave em on the ground and they wont get eaten

So if I release the rats on the living guards, that are walking around. That still counts as me, killing the guards? Instead of an unfortunate accident on the guard's part?

I'm not sure about that, but I wouldn't take the risk if you're going nonlethal.

It counts. Lol anything that you cause that kills a guard counts, weather its cutting a throat or summoning ravenous rats.

Not summoning, they are trapped behind a door, if I open the door they run out and start eating whatever is on the floor. Anyway, didn't take the risk, 20 Gold isn't that much to lose out on.

To make it clear, I'm taking about one of the rat swarms that are in the game, not the ability you can use. There is a swarm of those rats behind a door and if I open it, they run out and eat the guards. Would this count as a kill on my part or would it count as the rats killing them, like in the tutorial?
