Suggestions / Finding my arrows
« on: October 10, 2020, 03:44:40 AM »
I pray to the URW Gods on High for a spell and a device (divining rod) and an animal companion command (fetch) to retrieve arrows I shot that landed off in the distance. I love my broadhead arrows and it pains me to think of them lost and alone in the wild, orphaned from all that is good and kind.

and an animal, three "an" in a row

Bug reports / 25 stones quest
« on: October 05, 2020, 12:41:09 AM »
Dropped 25 stones outside the south wall of the sauna. Talked to the quest guy. Not done yet? Hauled stoens inside. Not done yet? Got another stone to add to the pile. Not done yet?  Moved the 26 stones to another inside corner. Not done yet. What files do you want to see?

Stories / Never have I seen so much
« on: September 14, 2020, 01:24:21 AM »
? A wounded adventurer barely managed to crawl into town. I wandered into town shortly thereafter. One of the town shamans, Eidar, I think it was, said the adventurer needed help. Of course that was irresistable bait for my curiousity. The poor soul, was out gathering fire wood in the morning when he startled a bear, his limb looked like roughly ground meat. And all he wanted now was the northern spear handed down to him from father to son for generations. He said it was in a coniferous forest bordering a large body of water. And, he marked my map - over there somewhere. What could be easier? And, I could use bear meat to try smoking, now that I had built a fireplace in a cave and walled off the area with a door.

The whole north side of this large lake was "coniferous forest"! I looked but found no bear tracks. Then, I found bloodscape! At least I was in the right area. Hopefully. But, where was his camp? I found more bloodscape to the east. But, no camp. Then, finally, I found his camp... and his spear... and two roasted grouse breast and a wooden mug? That's all?! Well, I was not doing this for the other items left behind at his camp. Honestly, I wasn't! Who needs a masterwork longbow anyways?!! Certainly not this Owl tribe master archer.

So, I returned his heirloom northern spear to him. And he told me of a treasure buried in a cave in the far south-west Owl-tribe lands, even further away than his spear had been. Narutrally. I'd heard from others about tales of treasures like these: rarely something YOU would want, like a huge masterwork battleaxe and masterwork shield, only you are an archer. Yes, I'd heard about treasures like these before. But, I could go, look, take the items to someone / everyone, else and trade whatever I found for jewelry and arctic fox furs - portable wealth. OK, that would keep me busy, really busy, for a long time... I checked to see I still had a wooden shovel I made a while back: yes. So, off I went.

I looked for the cave in the area he marked on my map.. And practically fell in a cave while I was looking the other way! I went back out to get some branches to make a fire and make a torch. How would I find this "buried treaure" in a cave? Was this even the same cave that adventurer was reffering too? There was something over there, looked like an oddly colored ant nest, This treasure was not even buried! It was just a pile against the wall of the cave.

I need a travois! I need a sled.. pulled by solar=powered dogs!!

How far away are Driik and Reemi from here? Why oh why do the two biggest malls have to be at opposite ends of the earth?

General Discussion / Third party programs?
« on: September 10, 2020, 12:56:43 AM »
I want to access a Linux program (Fedora 32 at this time) that tracks and filters items I find in game. I am specifically covetous of masterworks items and their locations. Is there such a thing?

General Discussion / Creating map markers
« on: September 04, 2020, 10:06:40 PM »
How do I mark locations that have something I want to come back for? Villages have certain items, river ford or rapids, animal found here, etc

Suggestions / wishing for socks and undergarments

*Praying to the URW Old Man w/ grey hat*

Oh Great Spirit, my feet and I come to you asking for but a few socks and undergarments to be found in shops scattered throughout the land, be they linen or wool. Forgive me for not acquiring the one pair of footrags I saw when first I stepped into the wanderer's life.


Bug reports / not installing on Ubuntu
« on: September 17, 2018, 09:18:24 PM »
Installed Ubuntu 18.04 on a borrowed Lenovo 4446-25U. Installed urw_3.51_amd64.deb using Software Install & played for over an hour. Installed Clam TK Antivirus. URW disappeared. Could not reinstall. The URW3-Linux folder is still there with many files. Downloaded urw_3.51_amd64.deb, still could not reinstall.

What happened and how do I fix it?

Suggestions / Wild boars can be very aggressive
« on: August 17, 2018, 11:01:38 PM »
Wild boars are real life monsters of legend. They are also very smart. They usually run first, hide, backtrack, conceal their tracks, have exceptional sense of smell, good hearing and poor eyesight. Herds are female, single boars are male, usually. During rutting season (November to January), males develop subcutaneous armor. They hunt small prey, eat almost everything, even plants poisonous to us.

A male, in rutting season, might attack without provocation. Females in a herd might defend their young if I stumbled into their midst.

Suggestions / Markers on zoomed-in map
« on: August 17, 2018, 09:28:36 PM »
I dropped all my items to hunt and afterwards, could not find where I dropped everything. Especially likely in wooded areas.

If I am not in a rush, I drop my items in an open area or I chop down trees around where I want to leave my things but, when the encounter finds me and pulls me into the zoomed in map, and it is wooded or crosses several areas, I have to rely on luck to find my things. Would that it were no so.

Another possibility; my footprints would be visible and would have a different appearance than all other footprints. Then, I could "retrace my steps" (a commonly heard phrase).

General Discussion / weight of dried fish vs dried meat
« on: July 21, 2018, 02:38:53 PM »
Why does dried salmon weigh more than dried bear? The whole salmon is dried and the bear meat is a chunk or slice of meat. BUT, they are similarly nutritious and less weight of bear is more filling than salmon. Not that it matters in URW gameplay but, there might be a RW reason behind this strange anomaly. Because, after all, URW is a caricature of RW.

Suggestions / selling animals back in town
« on: July 09, 2018, 12:53:05 AM »
I had too many dogs. They were eating more food than I could manage to supply. I felt bad about my virtual  dogs starving and I felt terrible about taking one of them out into the woods to politely ask for a set of dog fur mittens for some bear ritual I remember seeing.

Suggestions / Linseed, woolens, metal
« on: July 08, 2018, 06:07:09 PM »
I am shocked at how useful linseed plants are (linen cloth, linseed oil wood preservative and cloth water proofing, flax seed food). I really did not know flax, linen and boiled linseed oil all come from the same plant. Hemp has a little competition.

I search the UR world over for quality woolens. I would love caring for a herd of sheep (eating my turnips and getting eaten by lynx and bears despite my best efforts) so I could collect their wool and make my own MasterWork woolens.

Now, metal crafting is a monstrous can of worms in URW, mining, smelting, alloys, smithing and imbuing with  ritual blessings and powers, that is a lot of programming work. But, I would like a more reliable source of my most coveted weapons and armor.

Or, OMG! A spell to find where that one masterwork woodman's axe is in the world?! LOL, not to mention where I saw silver jewelry and an anthill to request an audience with The Great Man of The Forest.
