Let's talk about Dogmen
ITT: We discuss dogmen & their impact on the game. Here are my talking points:
1) Why dogmen? Why not werewolves? From the name, I can only deduce that they are some kind of mutant creation. Is there story lore to support the genesis of said beings?
2) Why are there so damned many? There seems to be an inordinate amount of them in the wilds. Are they breeding in litters? Are there dogWOMEN with 6 breasts that we're not seeing? Or is the term "dogmen" meant to indicate a specific genus, rather than gender?
3) Why do we meet them in solo? I'm assuming it's because one is generally enough to do the job. However, will we ever encounter tribes or packs of these things? Will we find a lost village of dogmen, roasting humans on a spit, with little puppychildren running around yipping & chewing on human ears?
4) Are they overpowered for the game? Their claw damage is quite impressive, to say the least. They do both piercing (1.2) and bashing (0.2) damage. Their claws are superior to any melee weapon a human might wield. Yet they are still inferior to the mighty power of gunpowder. Of course, gunpowder's might is questionable, with ammunition so hard to come by.
