Re: Cruel hand of Winter? I lost another one. This time, it was an Adventurer. Same place but in summer this time, so, it's possible that it's not about the weather.

I noticed that this guy had taken almost total damage on a Fine leather Cap and about 10% damage to a leather cuirass, both of which had been undamaged when I gave them to him. All he'd done with me is go to the island camp and lend a hand to my building of walls. Does drowning damage clothing/equipment?

 I was bringing in tree trunks from across the rapids and he had made the initial trip to the island and a subsequent trip for lumber. So, I guess this was his 4th venture across the rapids. It seems I just won't be able to bring Companions there.

Re: Capture dog in the wild? There is a conclusion to this event.

I went back to the game where the dog was still running around me. I wondered if he'd follow me home and started the trek back. After a while he took off going the opposite way, so I hit 'Enter' and went to the strategic map.
NOW, as I look back, I see a man. When I go to him the dog is running around him and there's a bloodsign on the ground nearby. I check his inventory and see that has fox fat and 4 fox cuts. Evidently, the dog was with the hunter, who was previously distantly stalking a fox while his dog was stressing about me and my pack of animals.

So, it's not the Njepr's dog. It's interesting that the hunter's dog had wandered so far from his master.

Head gear, bird leather I've found that a character can wear on his head, all at the same time:
1. Woolen cowl
2. Leather cap
3. Fur Hood
4. Mail cowl
5. Iron helm or a iron spectacle helm

Would this even be possible?

On another subject, I wonder about bird leather as a viable craft item. I'm having trouble visualizing a bird with skin thick enough to make leather, or large enough to make tanning it worthwhile.

Re: What's Going On In Your Unreal World? My oldest established character is now about 1300 days. He just built a new settlement on a long, relatively narrow island in a wide river. It's 7 hexes at its widest on the strategic map, narrowing down to one hex, and at least 20 hexes in length. It has 6 rapids areas, no fords. I like it for the security it provides when the warm weather arrives. It's a day's travel to the original settlement and there's a lot of villages in the area between.

Considering the isolation I was surprised to find a foreign trader band on it. Then I was surprised that they got off it, somehow.

So, now it's surrounded by two fences with many deadly pit traps between them. I plan to make this my fishing camp.

Re: turnip seeds Yup. Turnips, such as those the villagers have in stacks in their houses, will be seen in the 'Food' category. Turnips harvested from a garden/crop, by using the Harvest action, will be seen in the 'Plants' category. These latter must be threshed, which results in an equal amount of turnips and seeds.

Re: What's Going On In Your Unreal World? This guy has a cabin on a small lake. It's fenced on 3 sides, right down to the lake EXCEPT on the left, where I have a row of loopsnares at the lake's edge, with a gap between each trap. That's the only place where there's no fence blocking.
So, I'm working on a small hide in the cabin when I see through the shutter a large elk wandering the fence, inside, on the right side. He'd found that small gap and couldn't figure out how to exit! He's afraid to step on the thin ice of the lake(Winter is coming!) and is looking for a way out.
I arm my bow and Fine broadhead arrows and corner him against the lake and the fence, firing at point blank range, a mere two steps away... and I miss shot after shot. My rating of 91, minus 10% for encumbrance is no match for this elk. I shoot six arrows and throw two javelins (100% spear!) and hit ONCE with an arrow. Eventually I just wielded a spear and beat him down with the club end, while traveling the length of the fence. When I read the play-by-play, it says the elk DODGED my

I recovered one javelin but the other is out on the thin ice. Strangely, not ONE arrow was recovered, not even the one that hit him. Not stuck in the fence, nowhere to be seen in the forest behind. Every arrow, just gone!

Same guy goes to check a fence/trap on another small lake. Dropping to the tactical map, he appears almost next to a wolf, behind it. He shoots his readied arrow, hits, and the wolf takes off like a shot, straight over the trap/fence, into the lake, breaking ice out about 20 moves, then expires. He comes back with a punt and just paddles out to the large, dead, wolf and recovers the easiest of kills.

Re: What's Going On In Your Unreal World?
@Tom H , if your quarry turns away for whatever reason, [h]ide, then shoot for easy hit.

I’ve got skull (Bleeding) hit on forest reindeer stag. It took some evasive maneuvers, but I eventually found it about 200meters away, deceased.

One hit instant kills aren’t common by any means.
Only reasonably doable when sneaking on sleeping, and using battle axe or battle sword: Edge: neck or skull. The be not tried masterwork spear Point on skull.

The broad heads seem to do excessive damage to hides. With 1”-2” cutting edge, it’s bit exaggerated for it to tear up the hide same as edge hit with woodman’s axe.

Hide? Wow! I wish I'd thought of that! The same guy got a one-hit kill on a Njerp. Chased after him in woods, lost sight, then came up directly behind him. Phwtt! Broadhead hits the skull, deadun!

Re: Hearing range? IT's almost certainly an owl or other predator bird knocking down a kill. Sometimes you'll find a partially eaten carcass but its usually just feathers.

Re: What's Going On In Your Unreal World? Met foreign traders who had a Fine Long Chainmail hauberk. 3 Fine Winter bear furs, 3 Fine Winter Lynx furs, and a plethora of wolf, reindeer, elk, fox, and arctic fox furs, all Fine quality, asked and given, and I now have the most costly item I've ever traded for. Lord Knows what a Mastercraft version would cost!

Re: What's Going On In Your Unreal World? I corrected that. It IS a hauberk...sorry! Aye, it weighs 30, 5 more than the one I'm presently wearing, which is NOT a Long.
