I'm proposing a companion idea that I would be honored to call "Our" idea.
Right now I'm working on Major Tom's quotes & I'd like to hear any constructive thoughts. So here is some back ground.
Being a small monkey, Major Tom could not & should not, take part in combat nore will he carry bulky items like weapons & armor. Major Tom has a special skill, he dances to create a distraction allowing the player bonuses for stealthy actions. So Major Tom sometimes has his own opinions relating to certain situations & things the player might ask him to do.
- Major Tom will refuse to carry any weapon or armor other than his default space monkey suit.
- Major Tom will never engage in any form of combat.
- Major Tom's Intelligence is listed as a 6 in human terms but for a monkey, there is no doubt his cunning would tip that scale to a devious and mischievous genius.
- Major Tom dose not actually speak any human language but pictograph symbols and word buttons on his monkey pipboy, when linked to some computer operating systems and other pip boys, can roughly translate "Monkey Speak" as it's called, into vocal clips and phrases for basic communication and of course being raised by "Human Folk" Major Tom dose understand the meaning of a great many words, a basic sign languagebody and common gestures.
- Major Tom knows better than to try his Monkey Dance Distraction on irrationaly hostile creatures and he will not be shy about telling the player what he thinks of the idea.
Here are the "Monkey Speak" quotes I came up with ~ I hope yours are better ;)
