PROJECT Beast of Burden

Discussion in 'CREATING WORLDS & SETTINGS' started by Minibit, May 13, 2015.

  1. Today we're designing a beast of burden. By that I mean a domesticated animal whose main purpose for being kept is to perform labour. Earth examples would be horses, mules, sled dogs, elephants, and camels.

    Even mechanized societies tend to have some labouring use for animals, even as a fallback.

    Animal name:
    Description: (appearance, physical capabilities, temperament, etc)
    How many hours on average can it work in succession?
    How much does it eat on average?
    Is any special equipment (ie; harnesses, leads) needed to accomplish work with this beast?
    How many of this beast are typically needed to perform an average task?
