Dog companion

  1. 1. Do you dog companion (like Dogmeat)?



Recommended Posts

Forgive me for adding another poll (because I know you guys are sick of these), but I'm just curious on whether people would like a dog companion. Since both Arcanum and Fallout had dogs as companion, I figure, why not stick with tradition and add dog companion in this game? The dog's class doesn't have to be unique, so he could a slightly modified version of the fighter class that would fit dogs. For example, the dog would have "headbutt" instead of "shield bash", but both skills could be exactly the same damage-wise.

 

Obviously, a dog companion won't have as much character development as the other companions, but he could react to certain situations and you could makes some funny banters with the dog (similar to the dog in Dragon Age Origin).

Ohhh, a multiple choice yes/no poll. Nice. ^^

 

But seriously, a dog would be cool. or a pet basilisk. :3

Yes... :x

 

Joking aside, I wouldn't mind an animal companion. While I liked 'Dog' in DA:O (one of my favourites besides Sten and Zevran), I'm not really fond of canines in general. Give me a pet Kommodo Dragon or something exotic.

Maybe an elf on a leash? Fetch. Sit. Play dead. Good elf!

Ehh I think I'm kind of sick of dog companions after DA. Summons? Yes. Familiars or ranger-type animal companions? Yes. Okku? Yes. I certainly wouldn't want anything that would occupy one of the companion slots, though I wouldn't mind something that just started following you around because you happened to feed it. And do we even know that they will have dogs in this world? If they do they have to have cats too.

This is a fantasy game. let's have some 'fantasy' pets not RL ones like dogs or cats.

 

Want a dog as a pet? How about a choice between a hell hound or a blink dog.

 

Let's make the pets fantastical to fit the fantasy.

I'd much rather see a potential exotic creature companion. Not sure as a party member or as a ranger-type summon, hmmm.

Write your own romance mods because there won't be any in PE.

Can I have a pet black panther that I summon from a figurine of wondrous power? I don't think that's been done yet.

Watch it or Drizzt will get medieval on you. :banana::teehee:

I like the idea of having a pet, but I agree with those who think it shouldn't have to be dog. :p Reptiles don't always get enough love, true, but it'd also be fun to have something completely new, or specific to the setting. (Also, more of a cat person myself. Ooh, or a bird! :D)

No. I will however, accept either Honey Badger, Alaspinian Miniature Dragon, or Tree-cat

A scaly quetzalcoatl gets my vote.

I love dogs, but it has been done to death lately in RPGs in my opinion - Fallout 3, F:NV, Fable 2, Fable 3, several action RPGs and JRPGs... Dogs were not just included but a bit marketing point.

 

If there is a dog, I want it controlled by telepathic brain worms with a secret agenda.

Yes to pets in general. I like dogs but if the Player has a choice of several to choose from (some that fly or run or crawl, slither), that would be cool. Does not matter if they are RL or fantasy creatures,

I'd like pets like a dog, but not for combat. A dog could be good for alerting the party to dangers through smell and hearing. Another pet could be a mule that helps carry loot and even injured party members.

Similar to the pets system in Torchlight?
