More Butchering/Skinning?

When I first started playing Soulash I noticed I could butcher fish people, but not other kinds of people. I guess because it would be too "dark" to beat some hapless farmer to death with a rock to butcher the body for meat/leather; but c'mon now, it's a dark game. Maybe only for certain races, like the troll for instance who needs to eat a lot more (and traditionally trolls do in fact eat people), would help add variety to races and balance their substantial hunger.

I'm not 100% but I'm pretty sure there are a lot of other enemies (dragons?) that can't be skinned/butchered and I think this is a missed opportunity for some more interesting crafting recipes. Also, if I'm not mistaken, you can only butcher or skin a body, not both. This doesn't really make sense, so unless I'm mistaken I think it would be good to be able to do both as one action to get the hides and meat from each kill.

I would like to expand the system eventually by adding cooking and some effects to the food and I'll tackle things you mentioned too. Trolls, orcs, goblins definitely will be able to eat people at some point in the future without negative effects.

Butchering and skinning is specifically set up like this to force a choice, as corpses are a limited resource in the game.


Sounds awesome, can't wait :)

"corpses are a limited resource in the game."

Not in my experience lol
