TygerxEyes Posted November 30, 2017 Share Posted November 30, 2017 I will begin by saying that the concept of pets (let alone horses) in many fantasy role playing adventure games make little sense as they would pretty much get hurt all the time, would frighten and run-off (probably get lost or hide) which is all you really need after fighting off 3 trolls and being roughed-up and knowing several more are coming you're really looking for the stupid cat you just found that ran off...? Plus, what mundane cat can out run a Winter Wolf whose breath weapon pop icicles it... little flying baby dragons sure until you find a griffon or winged gargoyle, right? Try stealth movement with playful puppy... lol. Plus, said little puppy is an easier grab for a lone or two goblin than your party, right? Let's face it - it's gaming fluff and pets are really reward and trophy items. Even so, I get it and I like finding and rescuing the little guys, too. I would, however, love to see my stronghold be their homes. It is a concept that has been done (e.g., the Space Monkey Thing in ME3). I mean... who travels around with a space monkey in tow and underfoot on adventurers and raids. Really?In PoE, I would have loved to have been able to give them to the Warden (to hold in like an inventory item box... so,, yes, you could get them back if you did want to take them on adventures and trade them around) who would care for them in the keep... but when you gave them over to the Warden - the pets would populate the keep in various places - the library, different parts of the courtyard, kitchen, prison part, etc., so they each had their little spots, safe at home-base. In this slightly more realistic way, I would be the rescuer of pets who I would give a good safe home after all your keep is really a functional trophy item, too - yes, it has function and benefits, but still a trophy. 2 `Tyger~ Of course, in the zany world of Pets in Pillars, what I would not likely do is... stuff one pet (much less all of them) in the airless hole of my stash... squished in between armor, blades, potions, and food (lol) - with one of two likely results: "Ew, Steve the Spider got squished between the +2 Shield and +3 Barbed Plate! " or " DARN IT! FIDO! Did you eat all the jerky AGAIN! It's dog-bone soup, tonight! " Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
