I don’t know if this is a bug or an intentional thing, but my carpenter started attacking Gobbos as they stole some juniper logs from me.
Since I don’t have a screenshot (was playing on x2 speed, and I didn’t notice the carpenter getting in on the action until the very end), I’ll recount the experience as best I can.
A pair of goblins rolled into my camp and stole some logs. I had a footman armed with the wooden sword, who took off after them and cornered them alongside a rocky cliff face. I zoomed in to watch the duel, since I enjoy watching a good sword fight. While my footman was duking it out with one of the armed goblins, my carpenter comes sprinting in from the direction of town and started hitting the goblin with his trusty saw, killing it in 1-2 strikes (though my guess is that this is because said hapless gobbo was probably already almost done).
Personally, I think this is actually pretty cool that he was willing to protect his fellow villagers, even if he wasn’t a footman! But I thought I’d let y’all know.
