My New Idea Animal Mechanic - New Creature Category: Animals
Creature Category: Animals

Animals are the dumb beasts that roam the world, they are neither good nor evil and don't take sides in the battle between good and evil. Animals are, however trainable and can be domesticated for use by either side. They can be trained as beasts of burden, hunting, or war. They can be kept as pets, or put to work.

For the purpose of Dwelvers, animals trained as bests of burden could follow an imp on any task that involves carrying items or retrieving loose items to place in stores. In the case of gathering loose items, say from a mining operation, the imp would go to the site where the items are, with an animal following along, and the imp would gather the items up and "store them" on the animal until it reaches capacity, at which point the imp would then lead the animal back to a store and unload the items into the store room. When delivering items to a production room, the imp would get a beast of burden, load it up with the items the production room needs and and deliver them to the room in larger quantities then the imp could on its own.

For now, an animal trained for hunting would fetch fish and carry them back to a store, but this could be expanded on as new features are added.

For an animal trained for war, it would follow warrior types around and attack enemies alongside the warriors.

Each animal species would not be suitable for all task types, such as a horse would not be suitable as a hunting or war animal but would make a perfect beast of burden.

Each animal would have its own appearance.

Highlight: New set of creatures that do not have an allignment.
Function: Animals are neither good, evil nor neutral. They are an alignment unto themselves and can be hunted for meat and hides, or captured and trained. While wild animals will tend to avoid confrontations with the aligned creatures but if cornered, wounded or protecting young will fight viciously. Or captured and breed as a domesticated source of resources (eg meat and leather).
