Parafolk life spansMay 13, 2021 at 8:59 pm
This is something I noticed being discussed in the official reddit for a few days so I thought I’d make a discussion here about it.
Basically it seems everyone has different feelings on how long Paras should stay in their life stages/ages. Some want longer stages, but others believe it should be shorter so as not to be too boring. I’ve noticed that it is very common to suggest life stage spans based on “that game franchise”, so it’ll be something like babies are babies for a week, toddlers are toddlers for 2 weeks, and so on and so forth. Meanwhile others say all stages should last a full in game year and Parafolk would age on their birthday (but the player should be able to do it manually whenever they want).
Me personally, I would LOVE if Parafolk stayed in each stage for a full year and we could watch them slowly grow throughout the year before their birthday. This to me could work with both gradual aging and a stage aging system (whatever the team ends up doing). The best course I think would be a customizable aging system where the player could choose how long everything lasted by days, weeks, months, or years.
What do you guys think? How long do you think Paras should live in each stage? What would you make it if it were up to you?
