Makes so much sense -.-
The monsters of DD-verse are ruled by a super-Goat whose chosen strategy for preventing the slaughter of his followers is to kill them himself so he can flood the market with their body parts so there's no economic incentive for anyone else to kill them.
Well, economic warfare is horribly devastating and has destroyed the county my parents have been living in, and is destroying the country I'm living in now. It's rarely used in videogames, but it's pretty villanous and terrible. Killing your own minnions or making genocide is also pretty villanous, and is something an evil economist would come up with. It could've been inspired by history, for all I know, and humans have done stranger and more evil things. Having a super-Goat as the villan makes perfect sense, you fight them in tutorials where one kills you, you fight them in the pre-game dungeons, their boss Bleaty is a menace, theyre the iconic breakout creatures of the game... It all makes quite a bit of sense, or rather perfect sense.

No it doesn't, except if I go aruging about it someone will declare I have ulterior and objectionable motives, and that just makes me feel bad. Plus, wrong thread for it entirely, but I'm pretty sure having a pallete swap of dwarven gauntlets for an item called Mage Fist, even as an obvious placeholder art would make much more sense than it being a pair of boots. Unless there's a reeealy good joke attached, but even then the joke would serve the function of lampshadeing the fact that when you hear Mage Fist, a pair of boots is not something that comes to mind i.o.w. it doesn't make sense. If it did make sense, I woudn't've looked at the picture and had the need to ask "Does anyone know what the boots do?", I would've gone: "Oh, that must be the art for the mage fits, looks fitting".
