What is the reasoning behind the lore and the beastiary?
I was wondering was is the reasoning behind the choices of weapons and the beastiary?
It seems to be set in a relatively close future, but the weapons we get are old and rubbish even for our time. I mean, one would use a machete over a cleaver and I believe the former is more comon than the later. (machetes can be bought for 10$ at canadian tire for exemple unlike cleavers which are more specialised and mostly used by butchers) Same for the rifles...
Why dogmen? We all know that radiation doesn't cause a thing but terrible sickness and death. What is this cherokee none sense?
Talking about that, why the humor? Isn't a game that we are suposed to take seriusly. For exemple, the health system is very deep and realistic, the death system is very harsh, the game itself it pretty tough but then you have completly absurd newspaper and ''dogman'' roaming the world. Its ambigous, the humor with this kind of gameplay just doesn't make a good mixture. Fallout did it well, but it is not working here. I would personnaly go for the very dark and realistic path instead of that hermaphrodite.
Im a little bit worried about the direction concerning these points, I believe they are not very tasteful or thoughtful. These kinds of choices need a little bit of research and reflexion, otherwise its a mess.
