Proposed Hound Breeding Changes:
- Remove all stats/minors/majors from the system
- Add cosmetic differences and a 'heritage' bonus
- Breeders unlock types of hound builds/fur colors/eye colors/heritage bonuses based on breeding
- Create a 'line' of breed stock with a certain heritage, then tweak/breed with other lines for unlocking various aesthetic dog types
- Heritages would be unlocked through breeding within your own line (rng % chance to branch), or increased mutation chance when breeding with someone else's dog (rng %+ chance to branch).
- Breeding physical traits into your line from another's highest chance to gain traits, with a lesser % chance for random mutations
HOUND LINE FOUND name
HOUND LINE name HERITAGE trait
You create the Ostra hound line.
The Ostra hound line's heritage is Heavy.
(Heavy: 5% extra damgage on physical attacks)
HOUND BREED LINE LINE [M|F]
You order the kennels to produce you an offspring from the Ostra line and the Dram line.
(Where Dram line is someone else's. You could also just do OSTRA OSTRA to get yours)
While the hound is being bred, you have the option to change the aesthetics to anything you currently have, though this will prevent it from developing any mutations at all:
HOUND TAILOR build|body|eyes|fur|special option
Ideas for these:
- Build: large, small, compact, lanky, wiry, bulky, skeletal
- Body: long, wide, stunted, narrow, twisted, misshapen
- Eyes: red, blue, green, gold, amber, cyan, black, brown
- Fur: red, black, brown, gold, tan, mottled, spotted, gray
- Special: two-headed, two tailed, warty, cancerous, smushed_face, long-nosed, fanged, winged, spike-furred, burning, frozen, electric, twitching
None of the above would have any impact on what the dog actually does, and only very basic ones would be unlocked for the fresh Carnifex. They would have to breed regularly and hope for mutations, or breed their dog with an already mutated dog to unlock such options for their own lineages.
Howling happens, greet a kennelmaster
You are presented with a healthy male/female puppy.
