We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

Poisonous beasts?

Recommended Posts

Ludvig   

I know there are a lot of venomous beasts (that give poison when they bite you) but are there any poisonous (that poison you when you hit them) ones in the game?

I found poison gamin (who I think are technically beasts although I don't see.how that makes sense). Any more out there?

There's one of my personal favourite models who once spent an entire game poisoning Lazarus, getting him up to poison +16 before he died: the Dawn Serpent. He usually makes it into my Marcus crew on the rare occasion I play Arcanists.

 

 

Edit: Bluuuuuh totally misunderstood your post. Leaving in the dawn serpent story cos it was a funny moment tho.

Haha, completely acceptable since that sounds fun! Too bad you didn't bring a performer ;)

There's a missed design opportunity here. Silurids and gupoa ahould obvioualy have had a defense trigger built in to splash poison. It's still not too late to make an undead resser goat that leaks necrotic fluid when you punch it though (hint hint designers ;) ). There's already a real one! saltz1-11-4.jpg

We have the stiched together who hurts people that hit him (and black blood) we also have the zombie chuhuahu a who emits poison. There is several models that do cause damage of some kind when they are hit. The Whiskey Golem has the trigger to poison on Df I htink. 

And the Guild autopsies leak necrotic fluids, and zombies spring up. 

But none of it on beasts (other than the posion gamin)

Cheers! Black blood feels more like acid à la Alien to me but I guess it could be poison. Whiskey golem sounds like the effect I wanted a beast to have, specifically granting the poison condition when hit.

I can't really think of a real world animal that is so poisonous that it would be dangerous to hit it with a sword. Also, this game doesn't differentiate between attacks that actually cause the attacker to make physical contact with the target from the ones that are essentially poking with a long stick or magic. I guess it could just work based on the range sort of like black blood...
