    Arthur from RDR2 would be the most susceptible to the disease because he has poor hygene unless you bathe him everyday, most people play him with some kind of beard and you can niot get a true clean shaven cut untill late into the game, he is in regular contact with various other people most of which have poor hygiene as well and SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED THE MAIN STORYLINE He already has health complications (tuberculosis) that would have lead to his death anyway if he wasn't killed. Corona Virus is especially lethal to those, like Arthur, that already suffer from poor health. This, combined with his poor hygiene and the poor hygiene of those around him makes him by far the modt susceptible. Kranky Kong has no health problems that I no of except for a poor back, which he still manages fine.

    This does’nt explain the wool structures, I think that they made Steve and made him go to the end Steve is a superhuman who cheats death and names the final bosses dimension the end, because they told him too.

    The beasts are not made of villagers but iron golems, the legs and arms and others match perfectly. Another part of the lore could be illagers made iron golems to get into the village but was kicked out after they made iron golems. Or they taught villagers to make iron golems

    Try thinking of it this way. In Sonic’s world currency is Gold rings. By my calculations, each ring is worth $240,589.25 USD (In our World.) In Sonic’s world you can spend 4000 rings for an empty tin can (Sonic Adventure.) Basically, your spending $962,357,000 USD for something that’s (unless recycled) is next to worthless. We value Gold so high because it rare and is used to make our tech happen, while in Sonic’s world its literally EVERYWHERE. So, I guess the take-a-way from this is some value certain thing differently than others…

    You're forgetting that the warts grow on soul sand, the soil in which the dead builders of the past are buried. So the pigs are eating the byproduct of a dead human. They eat the fungus that grows on builder corpse. Which would've explained why they're now two legged
