Pets

Postby Dalorian » Wed Sep 12, 2012 8:31 am

Hello all,

Id like to suggest today that Pets be introduced into the game. Perhaps you could tame a wild bear, or breed dogs/wolves and sell the puppies. There are so many possibilities here. I for one think it a great Idea for players to be able to take a dog out with them hunting. Perhaps the Animals could even be leveled up via their own humor type system. Once they die, they are dead though.

The animals could also act as another line of defense for your lands. Why not have 20 wild dogs guarding your mine? Or 5 Wild Bears trained to attack Raiders when they try anything funny.

Warring against other towns would become very much more interesting too. You could start by sending in a wave of Bears to take out or weaken the defences, then a few waves of wild dogs to take out any defenders. Then when they are done, Send in the Men :mrgreen: Of Cource the defenders could also be well protected with pets of their own :twisted:

With the introduction of Moles which can tunnel around and disturb the ground above them; you could try and capture some moles and send them against the towns walls and buildings...

Thanks,

Dalorian

I love the idea of the pets, but i don't agree with warmongering.

a) Having a friendly dog around us:
- snifing for hidden truffles
- creating truffles hidden underground which we can't see, but a dog could sniff.
- Developing the dog (or our character) so he can get more easily truffles, or better ones
- having the dog just wandering around my settlement, keeping snakes away
- giving orders to the dog (1-follow us 2- attack snake 3- bark to foreigners or not)
- having to feed the dog too

b) Having a friendly Horse (i think this will happen in the future for transportation means)

Yes, horses will come. They aren't persistent, which is why they haven't been made available in game.

You're in the wrong game then :/
It's been neat to see the evolution of a game. Salem has come so far, and still has far to go. Although frustrating, I think it's been an experience worth the effort.
