A matter of thrumbos
« on: October 14, 2015, 04:04:50 PM »

Me and my friend both play rimworld and recently we were disscussing thrumbo based cavalry. We got on to the topic of the lenth of a trumbos neck. I think a thrumbo being a tree eater like a giraffe as well as being depicted with a long neck in the sprite. makes me think giraffes neck. My friend does not. Thoughts?

I believe its more related to an elephant than to a giraffe, most likely it is naturally tall enough to get to the normal rimworld trees, not to mention a giraffe would never eat bushes since its too hard, but thrumbos can easily eat them.

I think more of a furry unicorn-Brachiosaurus.

oh wait, unicorn related stuff should be off-topic

I described Thrumbos to my non-rimworld-playing friends as:

Elephant Giraffe Unicorns.

That sums it all up in my opinion.

Hard to say....they eat trees whole so I WANT to say something much longer then a giraffe, I imagine them like smaller dinosaurs....or maybe regular ones....Im sure you know what I mean.

PETA must hate me but all I think of them as is future fur coats equipped with a stabby stick...

I imagine their body to be elephant size height wise with a long neck protruding above that.
