[1.0] Social fighting with trauma savant character
« on: September 03, 2019, 02:41:00 PM »

A social fight broke out, and I checked the log. One calls the other a chinchilla, and they flip out.

The thing is, however, that Rabbit, the one receiving the insult, is "trauma savant" after a bullet to the brain, and can't speak nor hear. Yet he flipped out here after being called a chinchilla and began fighting. I would think that shouldn't be possible since the poor chap can't hear anything.






In this case I wouldn't expect a social fight to break out, at least not like that.

Another one, with actually the same two people involved. Rabbit hears what he shouldn't be able to hear, and they go at each other.

Maybe they signed it?

I mean from one POV you could say that a pawn who can't hear should be excluded from ALL social interactions. If we followed the logic that's where this goes, to be consistent. I don't think I want to do that; I'll just say it implies they're communicating in other ways (and there are lots of ways to communicate with the deaf).

Thanks for reporting but I don't think I want to change this.
