How to use
The Hard Bone unlike other tools is only useful as a weapon. It is a mix of wood, rocks, and stones weapons. The Hard Bone allows you to have distance from an attacker, they never break, but only cause blunt force trauma. They are a compromise of the best and worst of the other weapons.
- Main advantage: Will not break if used and can be used multiple times in combat. Which means you won't need to constantly give weapons to clan members as they defend themselves.
- Disadvantage: Will help intimidate an animal but will not likely kill your foe in a single strike.
Understand that attacking certain big animals with a Hard Bone will lead to your hominid taking damage and negative status effects even with a successful attack:
- African Buffalo - Injury
- Bateleur Eagle - Bleeding
- Hippopotamus - Injury
- Megarian Banded Centipede - Venom Poisoning
- Miocene Elephant - Injury
- Miocene Pelican - Bleeding or Injury
- Miocene White Rhinoceros - Injury
- Thorbjarnarson's Crocodile - Injury
If you decide to use a Hard Bone as a weapon, you should have plenty of positive status effects or "protections" in place to mitigate any damage that may occur during combat using the Hard Bone.
