  • You could recover "Who's a Good Boy? Is it you?" by a step when someone new tells Dog that he is a Good Boy without being pestered for it. You can receive it through your actions, but not request it explicitly. This is the mystery of grace.
  • "I'll say that Dog counts as not wearing armor if he takes 'Who's a Good Boy? Is it you?'"
  • How does Dog regain natural armor? Does it come back with rest, does he have to buy/find it, or is there some other mechanism?
    • As written, you have to spend money in town (silver pieces in value) on repairing your armor. My feeling is that Dog needs a nice bath of equivalent value to a night at a motel to recover his natural armor's lustrous sheen. Spending one rest cycle (day or night) in the tea-room or another safe place to rest and eat and drink would let you recover it by one step.
