Playing my 3rd still-alive character now. Trying to get used to eating, resting, and changing what I'm wielding in the wilderness map, even though that feels dirty.

Vaguely considering doing a Let's Play YouTube video as virtually all of the ones I've seen have been made by people who are absolutely terrible at the game or who use EZ mode mods.

Death. That's what  :'(

A njerpez appeared out of nowhere just behind my back while hunting and killed my char,
which I was hunting with and was ill prepared for a fight. This happened just one day after
I had bought myself a bunch of master grade fighting and building equipment AND dropped
them at my residence. The njerpez only had a knife and such, but my bow, mastergrade
handaxe and low quality clothes were no match for him.

I guess I have to start a new character. I was just fond of that one and been building him
for some time. And this time I wasn't even rushing into dangerous wild animals or robbers
or njerpez out of boredom and/or curiosity... *sigh*

Preparing 3rd settlement for winter. Mihku has plenty of meat, feathers, cords and rocks to fletch to get through the winter. And whenever he ever sees robbers, he stops what he’s doing and relocates to another settlement. He had enough when group took his tunic and trousers and he had to travel across the entire unreal world with his privates flailing loose. Cave cabins are his favorite, as they don’t usually need more than 7-14 felled trees.

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.

Killing the Njerps.

Though this last one caught me off guard. I was skiing back from a long trade haul and found him hanging out in my courtyard. I was exhausted and needed to drop all the newly bought furs, so I chased him off with a javelin to hunt him down later.

An hour later, I start following his tracks away from my home. They're heavily mixed with elk tracks to the point of being hard to find. Eventually, I track the bastard down and javelin him in the thigh and slit his throat. Standard fare. But in his loot, I find a harsh elk skin and some uncooked elk cuts.

I turn around and lo! there's a dead skinned elk carcass. I killed him in the middle of butchering a kill. Which felt like payback. My last character got killed that very way by robbers.

So, I scored dinner and a movie with one go!

Previous character is still alive. Just realized I’ve not played farmer nor metal armored warrior in a while. So, I got Antti Sartolainen. 6’3” 208lbs max strength, great agility, eyesight and speed. Good Dexterity and rest.

Escorted some Kiesse craftsman to Sartola. Traded some rough short bows and dried fish for long bow. Headed back towards home to No-Mans Land between Kiesse-Koivula-Reemi. Saw some wild pigs in wilderness rummaging in heathland. Tried to catch them up. Ended up sneaking up on Njerpez warrior instead. Hid from him behind a spruce, dropped all the excess goods. Only kept longbow, arrows, short sword (claimed from a Njerpez at pine mire in Reemi), hunting knife and handaxe as backups. Heard him swearing. “Blyat something”. Nock the arrow. The Njerp steps in view mere 8meters away. Judging from his clothing; nettle shirt and fur overcoat shouldn’t be too much for even a rough arrow to penetrate and hopefully slow him down... with his bastard sword.

Relax the forearm muscles while still maintaining the back tension. Arrow is loose. But the rough arrows shaft must’ve been spined bit on the soft side. Maybe the rye porridge for breakfast was giving... bubbliness...?, and the arrow flew straight at the warrior, little higher than aimed for, hit his neck. And next the foreign invaders lifeless corpse hit the ground.

Antti was well pleased with his acquisition of initially seeming, over priced longbow. But it did pay back handsomely with bastard sword, hand axe, knife and some heavily worn clothes. Well suited for making into bandages and cords for fletching even more arrows. Only 4 more days to travel back to cabin under construction. Time will tell how much more wealth the longbow will accumulate.

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 missiles...lol.

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.

@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!

Antti returned from his delayed trade trip to Reemi, selling hides, meat and crafts, buying some rye, barley and round shield. Helped an old man get a new punt, hence the delay. But had extra time to harvest wild nettle, burdock, lake reeds, yarrow and other useful plants.

Finally got home and crashed to bunk. Spent next day threshing plants and cooking couple birds and squirrels taken on the homeward journey.
At late evening turning dark, remembered to go check traps around the cabin, 2 willow grouse and 2 black grouse. Saw fox run away, again. It has still not tried the bait on the pawboard. Turning around, saw a pair of boots, on someone sleeping under a spruce. A Njerpez warrior! Thought to myself “Ny perkele tulee sulle noutaja”. Continued, hiding, snuck up to the sleeping invader and swung the bastard sword to lob his head off. Stuck on spine..again.
Still need more practice. Or finer made sword. Possibly both.

Fur coat, fur cloak, fur footwear, leather trousers, knife, handaxe and Njerpez scimitar. Some roasted capercaillie and smoked wolf. Not bad catch.

Antti went out to look for birds, hares, maybe even a ermine or pine-marten. Something else to put variety to the smoked wildboar, smoked elk and smoked bear.

Out of nowhere bumped into elk doe. Maybe 22-26meters away. Quickly grabbing a pointed arrow instead the blunt held ready, the doe turned to run. Not the best angle or range, but Antti thought to give it a try, it wasn't quartering away but closer to broadside. Lead the shot and relax the forearm muscles, hit the doe in spine and it tumbled over lifeless from shock on the nervous system.  :o

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!
