Can troglodytes become werebeasts?
« on: April 23, 2017, 01:33:08 pm »

I know that it requires "sentient" creatures, but what does the game define as sentient? CAN_LEARN? INTELLIGENT?
I'm thinking of testing the genetics system of the game and creating a artificial environment, where one had other troubles, and the other did not, and see how each fared. I wanted to use troglodytes (accessibility), but I didn't want the werebeast be hostile before transformed.
Thanks.

According to the interaction examples provided in the raws, werebeasts require CAN_LEARN + HAS_BLOOD, and they can't be SUPERNATURAL or NOT_LIVING. So any creature with CAN_LEARN that has blood and isn't undead can become a werebeast, including troglodytes.
