Summary0004058: Forgotten Beasts/Demons of certain materials are far too weak.
DescriptionCreatures made of things like snow and mud seem way too weak, both in attack and defense. A couple of war dogs were able to defeat a forgotten beast made of snow quickly and without taking any damage. The Forgotten beast's pushes glanced away from the war dogs, and they were able to break off it's tissue easily.

Now I suppose getting hit by a bunch of snow wouldn't do too much damage, nor should it be terribly hard to take one down, so this much makes sense. If snow is supposed to be such a terrible material for a creature to be made of, then Forgotten Beasts probably shouldn't be made of it. They are supposed to be terrifying and hard to kill.. right?

Cold damage? Maybe it is planned.

Forgotten beasts made of the hardcoded materials (amber, coral, glass, water, coal, ash, etc.) are pathetically weak because said materials have placeholders for all their physical properties (as mentioned in a side note of 0003071, the FRACTURE and YIELD values are 10000 and the STRAIN_AT_YIELD values are 0).
