Something confuses me about the Pinnacle. People seem to overlook this. What is the origin of the house and why haven't we learned much about the BFG's nest?

I believe this island is meant to take place on a mountaintop, or summit, due to its barren landscape, small size and the fact that you have to go down to get to the normal Hamlet world. Whoever lived here where probably a loner. A nomad or an outcast. Perhaps searching for gems for the queen, or living alone on his on terms, due to a dislike of society. Maybe he lived in the slanty shanty before he moved out, hence it's abandonment and rotten state.

Whoever lived here doen't live here anymore, due to the bird coming in and making it its home.

I think Roc's island is the mountain shown in Wickerbottom's vignette

I think BFB kidnapped all the pig children and that's why we don't see them in the villages, and were meant to be fed to her babies; after awhile of this happening, the townsfolk no longer wanted the burden of grief and refused to have any more children. After her babies hatched, leaving behind egg shells filled with gems, the last pig child (I have a theory on this too) was stranded on the Island, trying to make a crude-makeshift town house that is uninhabitable. The last child was perhaps Wilba's sibling, having taken the scepter from their mother only to be punished as a sacrifice to BFB and her own children; otherwise perhaps merely getting captured by the bird, only to starve in the end. Would explain how the scepter got there, but I suppose the BFB taking the scepter as accident for mistaking it as a branch to build a nest with makes sense too.

Agreed. Those children were in the files, they just need to be placed in with some coding.

the problem is...killing children seems too bad, I mean yeah they make good krampus bait but still.

gotta keep that PG-13 rating you know.

I mean when I was able to whack Wilba when she was grounded I felt horrible.

Reminds me of Fallout 1 and hidden children sprites to not let players see them and kill them (yes, children were just invisible and unaimable, but with blast damage they still could be killed).

we don't see Pig Children in RoG but we do have Baby beeflows, eyebirds etc, lets see if it works out the same way in HAM.

I don't want the kids killed, I want them to have a npc status like the inn keeper.

I want this as well, like Pig king they can't be targeted or character just says he can't hurt them or something.

Ethics or Wagstaff. Pick one.

 

EDIT: Remind me not to post when sleep deprived, because then I forget to look at dates.
