Fireside Tales - angry critters

Fireside Tales introduces four new fearsome threats to Palaeo Diet: Eat or be Eaten. The least of the new beasts is the angry critter. Angry critters represent small but aggressively territorial beasts such as badgers, stoats, snakes, wild cats or even swooping magpies. They do not pose any significant threat to hominids or other larger creatures, but they can certainly be a nuisance.

These wee beasties are pretty much the antithesis of the much more timid 'regular' critters in the core game. Flushed out of hiding in the same way, they will always attack the hunter or hound that discovered them, and then will continue to patrol their terrain piece with bravado far bigger than they are.

These two little guys are the newly released stoats/weasels from Krakon Games Gnomes Kickstarter.

Here we can see the 'flexible' scaling allowable in a prehistoric game... Frygga, my converted Flytrap huntress, a Flytrap mammoth, and a rabbit from Warheads. I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable being that bunny.

Of course, other angry critters are also viable options... 😀
