Hoteltime and I were brainstorming and we thought it would be cool if there could be some complex interactions with the creatures in Boundless.
We only have a few now and I bet the Dev’s are already working on this.
For example, the cuttletrunks could be like the lions or vultures of boundless, attracted to fresh wildstock kills and a taste for fresh meat.
I imagine the spitters having a mutualism relationship with the wildstock similar to the langur monkey and the chital deer. Hanging out on the perimeter of the wildstock herds to help alert and protect. For example maybe the spitters can see farther and alert the wildstock to danger from cuttletrunks or hunting oortlings etc.
Once the spitters sense danger or a threat, wildstock go in a protective circle and start charging intruders… something like that. Whilst the spitters run out with flanking attacks.
Would make things a bit interesting.
Hoteltime also had the idea of somehow taming the wildlife for farming. That would also put a twist on things.
