Use extreme caution when fighting a louse herd. Don't fight with them without horse. They will likely destroy nearby collumns on the way and cause Cave-In.


  • To get to you, louse will destroy any objects obstructing their path with lower than Soak 25, meaning only Palisades and Brickwalls will stop their bloodlust.
