Re: Someone know about Privateer from the old forum? Ah that's a beautiful trout, and the rainbow isn't half bad either! I haven't fished for trout in a while, but I did go fishing for king salmon a few months back and caught a couple that were around 13 kilos (~30 lbs) along with a few decent northern pike, and found some late season dryad's saddle mushrooms; they were tough as leather but the flavour was as good as ever. As a (weird) side note, I've watched a video of yours on YouTube and I must say that after having seen your face on here, it matches your voice perfectly!

Re: Having a hard time finding animals. I prefer active hunting as well, since any lack of game I find can easily be made up for by fishing  ;D

My strategy is to set up a chain of hunting camps on hills and mountains throughout my region, with an effort to keep them all within half a day's walk of one another if the terrain allows for it. I spend my day from the later part of Small Hours to Noon in one area, and if I haven't spotted anything by then, I move to the next closest camp and start again the next morning. This takes me, on average, one to three days before I will spot something good.

For trapping, I've personally had the most success around water sources that are larger than 1 tile on the wilderness (overland) map. Find the water source, observe it for a bit to see if anything goes near it on the wilderness map, and set up a trap line along the most frequently traveled areas. For rivers, I would stick mostly to fording areas and leave the rapids for your fishing nets

Re: A new short film by Enormous Elk I got the notification for this in my email from Elk News while I was out earlier and I was so excited to get home and see it; now I've had a chance to watch it, and I absolutely love it! Definitely looking forward to seeing more from you guys :)

Re: Some clothes weigh too much This is just my input as someone who owns several different garments that are similar to what one will find in UrW, and the following is a list of what I have IRL with the weight of each item in kilograms and pounds:

Wool Cloak-7 lbs or 3,1 kilograms
Wool Tunic-4 lbs or 1,8 kilograms
Wool Trousers-3,5 lbs or 1,5 kilograms
Wool Leggings (pair)-2,6 lbs or 1,1 kilograms
Wool Kaftan (overcoat)-6 lbs or 2,7 kilograms
Wool Hood (two layers)-1 lb or 0,5 kilogram
Wool Hood (one layer)- 0,6 lb or 0,2 kilograms
Wool Mittens (one layer wool, one layer linen)-0,3 lb or 0,1 kilogram

My only garment that is entirely made of fur is a cloak made from the hide of an adult male whitetail deer; it covers my shoulders and torso completely, the length is just above my knees, and it weighs in at just over 12 lbs or 5,4 kilograms. I'm not sure if elk or reindeer hide is heavier or lighter than our regular deer hide so I don't know if that is really relevant to this.

The wool garments in-game, however, seem to be quite accurate when compared to what I have IRL. Of course, comparing my garments to those of the Iron Age, even though I've done my best to follow traditional designs, methods, and materials, could be considered anachronistic and irrelevant.
