Evil orcs attacked my town and killed a pet.
No. Not “a pet”. THE pet. Kobolds two-shotted my fox.
Okay, emotions aside, if our hearthlings now don’t die straight away, why should pets?
What I suggest:
- When a pet runs out of HP, it drops unconscious, just like hearthling.
- You can order to “evacuate” unconscious pets to safety. Just like hearthlings.
- Your herbalist can heal your pets. Just like… you know.
Now you may say that putting a fox in a bed is not very good. And I agree with that. But murdering a fox is even worse. Perhaps we can use some other items as “beds” for pets - rugs, for example.
We can name our pets, we should feed them. And since we can’t evacuate them with “Town Alert”, let us at least heal them when they are injured.
PS. And while I’m here, dead pets deserve a tombstone in the more grim turn of events.
