As much as I like Tony's 'quip', I don't think it's a good name and much prefer to call it d(a)e(a)mon or beast or Guardian or any name that actually enhances the dread and awe you're supposed to feel towards this creature.Ha ! I didn't know that Tony ^^
Well until maybe we have an official name for it, if we have at all ( no reason if it's just a wild creature that found shelter here ) it's pretty good
Ah, and how do you feel about the name "Porky" which is what the devs call the creature in the KS vids? Personally this name doesn't sound very dreadful to me neither lol.As much as I like Tony's 'quip', I don't think it's a good name and much prefer to call it d(a)e(a)mon or beast or Guardian or any name that actually enhances the dread and awe you're supposed to feel towards this creature.
I understand, and I did find it funny to call him Sir at first glance, it's also short, specific and thus practical. But I also believe in framing and the effects language/naming has on our experience of what we perceive (for those interested: a modified version of linguistic relativism and the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis). To me personally, the names I give to creatures subtly influence how I feel about them. And I assume this applies somewhat similarly for other people. Of course, people are free to call things what they want, I just felt like sharing my opinion on this.The irony of calling a wild, dangerous and uncivilized creature 'Sir' is what originally inspired the name lol. I felt it was in line with the nickname 'Porky'. I can understand why others may not care for the name though .
What would you get from him? There aren't too many places you could hide something on him. I wonder if SG will have a Witcher element where you can take the head of a beast to prove you have slain it, or to collect a bounty. (the head would be pretty heavy without a horse though...)Managed to kill it today.
Tried with sword and torch. Got rekt. Tried with sword an heather shield. Less downtime but still got rekt.
And then I tried the poleaxe. Its PERFECT. Its lenght, my characters height, everything. The overhead swing hit him right in the middle of the head, between those two buttcheeks. And it literally took 3 hits. I thought it would take alot more, but three perfect headshots and its dead. Poleaxe OP.
EDIT: he could drop something though.
