and the one time I TOTALLY ACCIDENTALLY killed a kitty....



Acidentally eh? I'm not sure about that!

No, just kidding. That's the reason they invented Quiksave and Quickload, right? RIGHT?

Well instead of killing aimals which people dont seem to like why not have "beasts".

Beast are in my opinion are half animals/plants and half monstrosities...

You know how it is...a mage/alchemist perform an experiment on an animal..it doesnt work..the animal breaks free and survives on its own..it breeds with those of its part animal nature and the result is a half-breed feral being.

E.g some idiot mage experiemnted with a wolf's teeth and a large posion ivy.
He wanted the resulting being to protect his herbs. What happened was he created a moving venus fly trap. Consequently the mage was digested by the trap who then moved on and had loads of offspring.

When fighting such a creature..the crature will bite and can swallow you for a period of time. When you emerge you will sustain alot of posion damage.

Or the mage might be curious to cross a turtle with a spider...ohhhh

So that the crature has 8 legs...an extemrly tough shell and a head of a turtle which can spit a sticky substance which may cause you to be entangled.

I.e instead of fighting the creature you have to break free from the web first...by this time the creature would have already started to use its massive teeth into your helpless body.

It's great to have special beasts, but animals should also still be there. I just think animals shouldn't attack you by default. A wolf won't attack anything it sees, only if you attack it first, or if it's hungry of course

I hope he's not thinking about the economical gain of early on haveing this creature as a part of the main story...

Ub: What gain?
I am not suggesting that the spider would drop money.

*shrug*

Its different!!!

Im not sure how you would determine that the wolf was hungry...maybe by the time i.e go near it at 6pm and you would be food. Or make a noise in its Den and it would attack you(at night).

Larian wouldn't have to develop a full game, so createing it would be cheaper. Thus the gain.

I didn`t like this too. I also didn`t understood sudden hostility of dogs and cats. Killing them wasn`t my favourite activity.

I was kind of confused about the sudden hostility of dogs. I never killed one (until they began attacking me) and the only thing I did remotely to anger one was kill a pig and chicken at a farm, possibly within sight of the dog there. Now all dogs in the game hate me. Hopefully this will never happen to cats as well!

And hopefully Larian will remove this "feature" in their next game ...

I don't reload for cats. If they want to attack a rat I'm already swinging for, they better be fast. If they aren't, it serves them right for trying to steal my experience points.

Actually, I was attacked by the dog Lar after re-entering that hotel room. Since he was hostile to start with, I killed him, and didn't notice other dogs had turned hostile for awhile (otherwise, if I had a recent save I would have reloaded).

Welcome to the forum.




Really? What "Lar" dog in DD?

Btw, I felt so terrible when I accidentally killed the cat in Aleroth that I reloaded.

Anyways, I hope we get pets in DD2 next round. Like you know... Neopets. LOL. Now that was fun for a few weeks before I got so bored.

It'd be so much fun to upgrade your pet and change the claws and attack type like... eh, Pokemon. (No... don't quote me on this.)

If you enter the Dwarven Bread inn before going to the dwarven village, there is a dwarf in a room north of the other marked one. He offers you some gems, and if you refuse them he leaves, and you can take a dwarven teleporter scroll off the table. If you return later, or if you go to the village before the inn, there will be a hostile dog named Lar in the room.

Some of the Larians had a bet with the real Lar that they could sneak a 'Lar' character into the game without him noticing.


I thought you could not attack/kill the cat in Aleroth? A couple people left the Aleroth gate open, and either had the cat wander out or a stray orc wander in, leading to a dead or missing cat.
If you kill other cats, the one in Aleroth (that you can 'talk' to) will not turn hostile.

The last time I played Divine Divinity, when I was gathering the council members, the orcs in Aleroth actually attacked that poor little cat! I killed all the orcs in town (checked and double-checked), yet the next time I entered the village Kitty had been slain!





The orcs killed the kitty in my game as well. Made me sad and angry. I didn't think until after I left the area that I could have resurrected the kitty. After that I finished off Rivertown as quick as possible to leave for the wastelands cause without the kitty no reason to hang around after that. I even tought about reloaded an earlier save but it had been awhile between saves.

I also agree the wolves should not attack you. Wolves do not attack people in real life, so this sets a bad example for young players that do not know how real wolves interact. In the state I live there just staring to get back a small population of wolves after they almost became extinct. We really don't need wolves to be portrayed as mankillers.

There is a charactor in the Dwarf Inn named Lar that appears as a dog and attack my charactor even though the other dogs do not. In this case I am able to leave and it won't follow me but I do not understand why he is hostile. Must have rabies I guess.

If you are very, VERY fast, you can save the kitty in the town ! I managed it ... and it was quit hard. But it is manageable !
