Even though de bag wouldn’t do anything special for the game. It still is there for us players to look at, to get a feeling like the new hearthling didn’t just poof there. That bag just gave the new hearthling a life. A place he or she has been living before finding your town.
Let’s let our minds roll out a little bit on this. Maybe a hearthling could have a fancy bag, that could mean he is from a rich place, possibly even having some gold with him. Or his bag would have holes in it, have mud stains all over it. He has been traveling for quite some time now. Has been living of of berries and is in dire need of a bed. See how just that one bag idea gave your entire settlement a backstory. Your settlement just became more part of the world, and not just a village out in the wild.
Would love to hear how others think about this. Am I going crazy on the idea??
