    That's a bit above the quota isn't it?

    Shit, if you don't like females in your party, you can always butcher them for meat.

    Even though the term has evolved from its original Roman etymology, I do see your point. I'll change the text to read "reduce" instead.

    Game looks like it has teeth, good work! I'll definitely be trying it.

    You use a lot of colorful language for the in-game text, don't neuter "decimate" because of some forum pedagogy. Maybe "slaughter", "massacre" or "indiscriminately kill"?

    Ah, good ol' Myron from Fallout 2. Looking at my Steam account just now, I see that I've put a 166 hours into that game. Likely give it another playthrough once I've released Raiders.

    No worries, I don't plan on watering anything down with the game. I thought about keeping the language clean in the early days, but quickly decided against that.

    It's okay. Combat and the game both feel fun at first, then just sort of plateau and don't seem to really go anywhere. Or maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    Cannot seem to build up the resources to do stuff, so just roll around with 8 max level guys raiding and wrecking shit, which makes the game push into its next phase, which seems like a bad thing since my garrison guys suck so bad and they cannot defend anything. The little weak stuff cannot just be auto smashed, and the fear mechanic feels neat but I don't feel like I am getting enough of it to actually be doing both the laws and extortion. May try a different approach and see what happens. It is fun though, and I'm going to play it more.

    Edit: Forgot to say, I do really like that your weapon levels up with you. It is a neat mechanic, that allows for a variety of equipped stuff instead of everyone having X cause it is the best. Also after playing more, feel like I absolutely screwed up the development of my base initially which is why I'm not getting into fancy stuff, but I am slowly improving now.

    Can you properly rape and pillage? Seeing that somehow you can have female raiders, they might avoid doing the first one in-game. Unless said fem-raiders are ugly, freakishly strong, or the favorites of another raider.

    All you do is pillage. There is no rape. But you can slaughter people for food.

    Found a gameplay video. Sadly, it doesn't seem that fun.

    Funnily enough, checking the video there are female raiders, and they're apparently the default choice, but they're invariably ugly and freakish-looking, so it is somewhat fitting. SJWs won't approve.
