You'd be surprised by what adrenaline can do to a person. This link has several stories of people who have survived a major impalement:

WARNING: There are graphic images in there so please consider that if you are bothered by it. I have a medical background and don't have any issue with seeing that kind of thing, but I feel it's only fair to warn you

I am also curious to know if there's a way to check a character's age; I've scoured the game files with no success. My only guess would be to back up the character save, kill yourself by quitting without saving, and read the epitaph after they've died to determine how many days they lived

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 :)

I can't seem to last the first year.

Usually:
a. killed by wolves
b. fighting one-too-many Njerpezits
c. a new version comes out and I want a fresh start
d. lose interest and want to try a different approach
e. character loses the will to live and walks into the sea

B and E have been the fate of the majority of my characters, usually in the second year. Voluntarily freezing to death on a mountain has also taken several of them, usually after sustaining a hobbling injury from fighting a bear or Njerp

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

Left my dog named "Moon Moon" at my settlement to gather some rocks for my fireplace, when I came back it was sleeping and moving around the tree it's tied to. I went inside and built my fireplace and it was still doing that.

Save file: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1A0VU07aUMXuLiHVBhPlAhd3EfPk1okQH?usp=sharing

Just out of curiosity, I downloaded your save and checked it out. The dog did indeed move around for a bit while it was still asleep after I did individual presses of the key for skipping a turn; skipped about ten turns this way with the dog still sleeping and moving around.

After those turns, I decided to try holding down the key and ended up skipping quite a few turns; the dog woke up at some point and everything was back to normal. My version of the game comes directly from urw.fi and not from Steam, so my guess (though I'm not a programmer or anything) is that there's something wrong with files in the Steam version.

Or perhaps Moon Moon is in a shamanic trance, and is dreaming new worlds into existence :)

I think this addition will make it even more intense for a character to deal with having a wounded companion; it's sad when one is killed, but I feel it will be even more heartbreaking to make an effort to save them only to fail and have them die anyway. On the other hand, it could be a moment of great excitement and triumph when your character can stop a companion from bleeding to death and thereby save their life. All in all, I'll be very happy to see this new mechanic implemented :)

Gameplay questions / Re: Harvest field near village
« on: January 12, 2018, 09:25:30 PM »
I have been taking things from fields that are close to, but not inside of, villages for my entire UrW experience (almost 4 years) and was under the assumption that since I wasn't reprimanded by villagers, I wasn't stealing anyone's property. After having learned now that I've been a thief this whole time, I'm mortified :( I suppose I'll have to clear my conscience now by giving a bunch of dried meat to several villages where my apparent thievery took place

Modding / Re: Someone know about Privateer from the old forum?
« on: January 06, 2018, 05:02:21 AM »
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!

Suggestions / Re: Wearable trinkets
« on: December 27, 2017, 05:00:08 AM »
Just an aside, It is possible to use the provided mod environment to make an item like a necklace wearable.

If it's too much trouble, could you explain how to do that? I've wanted to make trinkets wearable as well, but I'm very green when it comes to modding this game

Modding / Need help with Fennec's plant mod
« on: December 20, 2017, 06:12:30 PM »
Hello, everyone
  I have downloaded Fennec's plant mod since I reinstalled Version 3.4, but I don't remember how to activate it. If anyone could help me I would be very grateful

I had to vote the middle option as well, and for much the same reason as JEB Davis chose to vote that way. I would love to see spouses and eventual offspring in the future, and I agree that if it is to be implemented then it should come after some AI updates so that we don't have the old problem of "It's a nice car to look at, but it won't run without fuel!"

The work that has been done to this game (read:life-changing experience) over the years is wonderful, all of it being due to the dedication and passion that Sami and Erkka have for this work of theirs, and I am more than happy to simply sit back and watch it grow organically at their behest :D

Impressive!! I love the whistling arrow, as well, and now will be attempting to make a few of them for my longbow. Subbed to the channel, and happily awaiting more content :)

Then if the northern tribes represent Sami prople as you say,then you should add asian character portraits

Not all Saami people have an Asian look to them, though, as they are quite a varied group; some look very Scandinavian while others resemble Inuit-type people. Remember that the Saami are not exclusive to Finland, and are present across all of Lappland.

General Discussion / Re: Borders of Unreal World
« on: November 13, 2017, 09:09:45 AM »
For story purposes, let's say that the Unreal World is an enclosed spiritual realm, a loop of infinite time within a defined area of space (the space where the spirits are able to express their power to maintain the loop). The humans within are able to humbly live their lives in this distant, infinitely recurring past, and the spirits' energies are kept strong by their worship.

In a way, that actually ties in with the story of the UnReal World :)
