Butterfly shurikens
« on: August 29, 2006, 09:14:00 am »

In adventurer mode, it's possible to pick up small creatures with a little patience.  Then they stay in your inventory like an inert rock, and can be thrown just like one.  I've maimed packs of wolves from afar with thrown dragonflies and squirrels.

To be honest, I'd almost rather not see this fixed because it's so fun.

This is unbeliveably cool. I hope this stays.

Pets also should return boomerang like. Getting a metalsmith to do some piercing work with spiked studs on the pet tempts.

I've always simply eaten little creatures alive (live beetles found by carefully searching at ruins = yum).  I never thought about throwing them. =)
