Masterwork pages: Name vs ID[edit]

When I made all those creature pages, my reasoning was that someone would search the name they would see in-game. Feel free to change it if you think it would be more effective otherwise (my approach left me frustrated on occasion when presented with creatures that had the same name but different IDs, i.e. giant_eagle(s) or the different werewolf creatures). --J. d'Orc (talk) 16:26, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm creating the creature list box for masterwork, so I'm going through all the creatures and figuring out what they're called and what category they go in. I discovered the red dragon discrepancy because I'd just hit all the dragons and noticed that the red dragon was redlinked while the rest of the dragons were covered. It looks like most of the creatures that have the same names but different descriptions are from the Fear the Night stuff. I'm not sure what we're going to do with all of those, nor am I sure what to do with all the various crate and transformation/reaction "creatures". Cdombroski (talk) 17:35, 21 June 2013 (UTC)


Masterwork: Metalclad animals[edit]

Is it still a thing where metal-clad animals won't reproduce (because it would result in their offspring being born with metal armor), and so a pair of unarmored animals should be kept for breeding? I remember reading that but can't remember where. --J. d'Orc (talk) 21:52, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

In the manual for buildings, under the warbeast kennel entry. All the creature pages/raws should have the "non-breeding" mark as well. Cdombroski (talk) 23:15, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Gotcha. So there is. Thanks! --J. d'Orc (talk) 23:46, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
