Mik eats sparingly from his tiny stock of dried bear meat and has only a dozen pieces left in his cellar. He reckons there is about a week remaining until the deer meat he hung to dry at his furthest-south shelter will be ready. In the meantime, he breaks some ice and sets his net, check his traps (all are empty), and fish for a few days before heading south.

The fishing is slim the first day... only 3 roaches after fishing from afternoon 'till dark. He knows his fishing skills are not very good and his fishing pole is a poor homemade one, so this isn't surprising.

Next morning... the spirit of the lake provides like never before, and Mik offers up the pike in thanks.
Tomorrow he will pull up the net.

Give your possessions away to all of the villagers you meet.
They will love you and you will have gotten rid of all your excess stuff.
Win-win situation, eh?

And yes, we should be able to cut down the largest tree in the forest with... an herring!

2) Map generation
-You are lost, do not look where you start, it has to be random. Best you can do is close your eyes and press "w" for random starting location and then "e" for start.
A minor note... should be "r" for random

Indeed, yes.

Can we have a proper mace picture please?

Refer to this post by thefinn in the old forum, which I hope thefinn doesn't mind me referencing.

Thanks in advance!

He heads north of Pain Summit lake and from a hill spots the wolves seen a while back near his loop snares. With them still in the area he definitely needs to be careful to avoid an encounter. So he checks the snares and then turns west and then south-west. No game is in sight except a squirrel, which he knocks out of a tree and chases down.

The squirrel hide looks very nice, so Mik decides to tan it right there, using the water in his skin and the fat. He does so, and night falls along with snow that keeps him from sleeping. Finally the snow stops and he catches some sleep next to a good fire. The squirrel hide turns out very nice quality.

Mik travels further west than he has ever explored and finds only a tiny settlement... no big game animals whatsoever... only another squirrel and lingonberries to supplement the 2 dried breams he brought. This has become a hungry expedition. He picked some mushrooms and identifed them as redleggers, which are poisonous.

So Mik arrives back at Pain Summit with only 2 squirrel hides to show for his trip.

My sleeping dogs follow me in RL, dragging to where ever I'm going them plop back on the ground.
You should let sleeping dogs lie, Privateer.  ;)

You may have to be persistent and patient to find the shelter.
Last time I did that quest, I found bloodscapes & tracks, and
the shelter was difficult to find, but it was there. The reward
was worth the effort.

Now you can have a goal... cover your entire floor with bear and/or wolf furs  ;)

Bug reports / Squirrel - butchering/skinning
« on: October 28, 2017, 04:43:55 PM »
Mik was able to skin and butcher a squirrel while holding it in inventory (I don't recall ever trying that before, it was accidental this time). Then, after roasting the meat, I noticed the squirrel carcass (skinned) was still in his inventory.

I have the savegame at this point. Let me know if you want it, Sami.

He dropped the carcass and butchered it again as a test, resulting in the same as before (1 cut & the fat). The carcass disappeared this time as expected.

I think this is a 3.40 created character, but beta or stable, I can't remember.

While I understand the frustration you feel at missing those shots, I respectfully disagree. Also, I would love to see some real evidence on that English longbow playing card size target at 200 yards claim. And believe me, I've been a big fan of the English longbow since I was a kid 4 decades ago.

Hello... I'm enjoying a couple of vacation days!
But it is cool and raining so I'm inside the house now.
How is the weather in the Netherlands today?

On the radio now is "Ahead of Myself" by X Ambassadors.

Last week I went to a concert: Imagine Dragons with Grouplove & K.Flay
I like all 3 bands, but tickets are way too expensive and Dragons seemed
to be in a contest to have the loudest speakers... ear-piercing treble.
They had a wall of man-sized speakers 16 wide by 8 tall behind stage.
128 speakers was a bit over the top, especially for all the little kids.

Anyone else with a concert experience?

Two days later, his freshly roasted food is gone. Mik needs to go out hunting, but doesn't want to go without the protection of his best piece of armor. He has waited long enough for his elbow to heal, so he undertakes the task of repairing the cuirass.

Using his best-quality cords, and the salvaged lamellar plates, he fixes it to the best of his ability. It turns out looking very nice!

Unusual Njerpezit encounter... saw one on the zoom-map and went after him.
In the middle of a spruce forest. He was an easy kill, with no missile weapon.

As I was looting the body, another Njerpezit suddently attacked me, charging
out from the spruces only about 6 meters away!
Luckily he was not an expert fighter and I vanquished him, taking only one wound.

Not the typical encounter in Driik territory.
