If it's on a faceplate, it's real.

They are an animal in midlight similar to a lynx in deadliness/method of attack. They have long incisors and retractable claws that are edged, like a sword.

They are based, I assume, on these:

Smilodon Fatalis - Saber-toothed cat
Uncia Uncia - Snow Leopard
Lynx Pardinus - Iberian Lynx

And other such animals.

And yes, they are 'real', within the setting. Culexus has skinned a few of them. They behave and the stories that mention them treat them as a carnivore with a similar temperment to a wolverine. They are highly aggressive, and terretorial, and will attack much larger and stronger opponents in attempt to chase them off. Giving them an underdog/cagefighter sorta appeal.

Ok, well that is neat-o then. I can stop picturing a house cat with a sword now.

Treehouse Archer

What's up with the attack that the treehouse archer uses? Is there any defense for it short of constantly checking the spawn? Is there actually a roll involved or just an auto-hit? And the wounds seem off. Even after getting the wound treated, stitched, and bandaged, it still seems to heal more slowly than comparable wounds.

Nothing you can do but stay in sheltered squares or when you see movement run up and nab him.

Fumble Recovery

How does the Fumble Recovery skill work after the first 50 ranks? Is there a measurable point where all your fumbles become, like, "begins to fumble but manages to hold on and execute an attack"?

What does not removing stitches do? Is it a success penalty? Or just an annoyance?

If you don't roll over the success, it's basically just like any other skill that you fail with. An annoyance, I guess.

Edit: Oh, I see what you meant.

Yeah, there's suppose to be a penalty.

~1% chance of infection per echo.

Ok not really, just giving Tale some ideas

I -believe- it gives a small success penalty per each set, but of course havn't tested this.

Bandages seem to give a fairly significant defensive penalty. I've also noticed that I've seen the apparent same set of bandages echo multiple (3-5 times) on the same dodge. But I wonder if Tullaria just adds more and more bandages each time she heals you...meaning you could potentially have 30 bandages just on your face after fighting faceslashers all day. Good luck dodging with that.

From my experience, having 8 or more bandages has such a significant effect, a fighting area that I normally destroy the NPC's in becomes nearly impossible to hold for more than a few fights, especially if you get ganged up on. Everything becomes 5's to hit you.
