Dino Dossier: Compsognathus Curiosicarius aka Compy

Today the developers announced the new "Compsognathus Curiosicarius", the latest addtion to a proud series of animals with increasingly unpronounceable names. Called "Compy" for convenience, it's going to be a charming companion when alone. Be wary though, because when it teams up with its fellow Compys it will remember its lust for blood.

Common Name: Compy
Species: Compognathus curiosicarius
Time: Late Jurassic Period
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament: Curious
Tameable: Yes
Rideable: No
  • Wild: One of the smallest predators on the island, Compognathus Curiosicarius can be seen as a pet, a pest or a threat. While alone, Compsognathus is not dangerous or aggressive. In larger packs, however, it remembers its carnivorous nature. After a group of Compsognathus grows to a certain size, their pack mentality always seems to embolden them to "attack".
  • Domesticated: Compsognathus's can be tamed quite easily, so some tribes keep them for little more than friendly companionship. However they gain increasing significant attack power and speed when close proximity to other Compsognathus, as their pack aggression takes over their behavior. Additionally their distress call carries quite far, rapidly alerting the tribe and its pets to danger more efficiently, and increasing the likelihood of forming a so called 'Compy Gang'.
  • Known Information: For some reason Compsognathus is not naturally afraid of humans. Rather it seems to be quite curious of humans and their instruments of survival. They tend to be drawn toward humans out of this curiosity, and then call their pack mates to help explore their discovery. This usually leads to the aforementioned pack aggression.
