Oh great Sami hear our prayers, for Napping and circadian cycle. Sleep management it my least favorite micromanagement.

I tried an experiment. I took down a herd of reindeer late fall, about ten minutes worth of fresh ice but no snow on the map. I piled the slain deer 5 of them in an ice hole. And then went to skin butcher and start tanning the hides in that order. I was able to start the process on 3 of them bjyefore the last to went rotten. At no time did the ice melt. I feel that the deer did not exceed a temperature of greater than 0°C and as such should have kept longer than 3 to 4 days. What are your thoughts on this? It's a cold temperature or gutting and draining the blood more important to keeping a carcass from rotting in real lifr. Do you think it's worthy of a suggestion since Sami has been working on more realistic temperatures

Ultima online use to give a damage bonus to players with lumberjacking skill when using an axe. Personally I like Samis system but it's a valid point that a skilled timber worker would have the muscle memory and body mechanics to deliver a powerful axe blow

I don't know, if you can redirect a bear paw you can dodge a ball, err redirect a mace

Ya I can smoke or dry fat to eat I was thinking something more along the lines of some sort method keep the fat from spoiling but still usable to tan hides with. More like lard I guess

Suggestions / Rendered fat

Been messing about with seals. All that fat made me wish for a way to preserve it for a longer time in a usable form. Wondering about the historical accuracy of rendered fat or a similar process to have a
tanning agent on hand

Not sure how it works but zooming in or out is not a true save. My best guess is some where there is data in you character's file that says you have X item to the villagers but not the corresponding data that you need to actually have that item. I've seen similar things from game crashes or alt ctlr dlt my game. For example i encounter a bear it kills my bull so I close UrW to try again and I reload where I zoomed in with a dead Bull. Another time I killed an elk the game crashed shortly after and I reload in where I zoomed in only the elk is one wounded to the point on near death.

If done throw in some sort of fish trap as well.

True I absolutely can see a kick of opportunity. The scenario I saw in my head was an opponent trying to kick a standing target. Like so many things it comes down to skills. Is one opponent a talented at unarmed and the other making poor decisions like bending down and overextending

Why would a predator screech at prey and alert it. No death from above flies on silent wings

I kinda agree with the OP on the kicking in head thing unless there is a secret Foot of the North Star dojo in Finland I tink it's highly improbable to get KICKED in the head when your standing. That's a lot of distance to cover, pretty easy to counter by just shoving the guy with your shield. Maybe add inability to kick above waist or chest high or not unless you have a very high unarmored skill

Perhaps a personality traits? timid vrs bold. I've met many a dog who struggled with concept that he wasn't 10 foot tall and bullet proof. My current dog a 90lb mutt with let's call it healthly padding has zero fear of something the size of a north American elk, as attested to the by the fact that she wants to bark and them when we go to my friend's elk farm.
