YouTuber Kyle Hinckley took a path to of peace where he keep away from killing anyone directly and see what that leads him to. If that was not already tricky enough to pull, he chose to do that in Supernova, toughest difficulty of the game.

Obsidian actually allows players to complete many in-game main quests without having to murder anyone. If there seem to be a situation where that doesn't seem like a viable option, you just need to come up with a way somehow.

In one of his missions, he had to use a computer to wrap things up but there were two caterpillars on his way and he had to hide but since he cannot use the PC without alerting them, a tactical time dilation became his solution.

Another case presented a situation where he had to enter in a room with a character but it would lead to crashes. So, he made that NPC to do his bidding by using a mind control ray that lead into them attacking one another and he moves forward.

Doing this has made the game completely skip an impending cut-scene for some reason but let Hinckley proceed anyway. In most cases, he simply talked his way out of troubles or simply ran away from clashes when deemed necessary.

Not only he was busy evading conflicts but also focused on none would get hurt by any of his cohorts too by setting them to passive mode. Occasionally, he used many tools and weapons to affect circumstances but never directly for killing.
