Re: What do you like to cook in real life? My diet is quite simple:
-I make my own breads, both leavened and unleavened, with wheat or rye depending on how I feel. Sometimes I will add ground venison and cheese, along with herbs and spices, into the dough before I bake it

-Porridge is a staple food in my house; mostly vegetable porridge throughout the fall and winter after having harvested everything in my garden, and over the summer I tend to make more meat-based porridge

-Simple homemade cheeses are something I make year-round so there is always a good supply of them here

-Hearty stews and soups are another pair of staple foods, mostly vegetable-based but I do a meat stew once every couple of weeks since I make enough to last a week so I'm not cooking every day

-Berries, apples, oranges, and lemons are my main fruits; however, they aren't cooked (aside from baked apples) so I don't know if that actually counts in this thread

My UrW character and I seem to eat basically the same foods, which is something that actually drew me in when I started playing a few years ago. With the Njerpez Cookery Mod installed, he now eats a much greater variety of foods than I do in real life!

I grew up in the country, raised by my grandparents, and this is the way I have always eaten; I love it :)

Re: White screen? anyone?
What's so special about Win.10 anyway?  :P

Windows 10 is quite "special"  ;D

Re: Confirmation before eating unknown items! I've had my character eat unknown mushrooms based purely on the description; if it seemed to be a happy/positive description, I ate it. This tactic has lengthened my Ancestors list by a good deal  ;D

Re: Generic chat thread JEB Davis: That sounds a bit too intense, and I bet even Iron Maiden would feel overwhelmed by that many speakers!

  No concerts recently for me, but I did go to a wonderful Renaissance Faire over the past two weekends and listened to a fair amount of live music there. Bought a new seax and some other odds and ends as well, and sampled some good mead and cider. Last weekend was sunny and warm, but today was overcast and wet with the temperature getting to just barely above 4 Celsius; thank the gods I wore my wool tunic and cloak, although I still felt like an ice block by day's end!

  I'm ready for the winter to go full-swing, as I've spent a good deal of time splitting wood for the fireplace over the summer, and the wood from last year (mostly ash with some walnut and oak mixed in) is seasoned well enough to keep us toasty all winter :)

Question: How do you all prepare for winter in the real world?

Re: Poems of the Fallen
Just a quick note which hopefully doesn't get things sidetracked;
I absolutely love this thread.  It's so great this was started, and that people joined in.

Oh I would love to have some of these verses to be composed into proper songs. Any composers/musicians/singers around who'd need a new project... :)

Sami, I am actually wanting to put a tune to Njerpez Fallen and make a recording of me singing it along with playing the tune on my mandolin, if Silenia wouldn't be opposed to me doing that with their work! Not for profit or anything like that, of course, but simply as a fun little project  ;D

Re: The Challenge My first run did not go well.

I started with several minor puncture wounds, as well as two severe cuts in the abdomen. I cut my shirt into bandages, applied them to the worst wounds, and headed West in hopes of finding a river. After a full day of walking, and eventually stumbling through the darkness in the seemingly endless lichenous pine forest before finally succumbing to the cold and starting a fire for the night, I happened upon a great deal of lingonberry bushes. Oh what a joyous find! After filling up as best I could on the berries, I noticed the sun was rising and I was feeling desperately thirsty, so I continued my journey.

After two more days of travelling in this manner, I hadn't found anything in the way of something to drink. I found more than enough lingonberries to keep my stomach full, but I could tell that my body was weakening from hunger, and the berries could only sate my thirst so much; I had to find water.

Two more days, still no water to be found, but those berries are everywhere and I seemed to be cursed by them! To only have enough to feel full, but know that your body is falling apart for lack of real nutrition, it's maddening! It was on the sixth night that I found my reprieve...

The sun was down and I could barely see even a meter in front of me, but I just couldn't stop my body from moving forward. I needed water, I needed it more than anything in the world, and even the numbing cold was a mere nuisance in comparison to the nail of thirst that was driving itself into me. I was exhausted and confused as I trudged on in the pitch black of the night, but I was aware enough to hear the crack of ice as I blindly stepped onto the frozen surface of the lake. As I felt the ice give way beneath me, I had a feeling of bitter happiness; I found water! Once I was fully submerged I realized that I was too tired to make my way back to shore, and smiled because I knew now that I wouldn't have to wander aimlessly through this frozen wasteland anymore, nor would I worry about thirst or hunger. The sun came up just as I felt myself slipping into my icy sleep, and I looked to the forest one last time. My smile turned to a frown at what I was gazing upon, and my final thought hit my mind like a hammer: "Lingonberries...dammit."

Re: Borders of Unreal World Just tried this today, and the results were less than spectacular. Once you hit the edge of the map, you get a notification saying "For some reason you dare not go any further!"

Re: Generic chat thread Yes and it's doubly sad that most good faires only run for a month or two during the year :( I make sure to always bring a cookie with me to brighten my day while I'm there, and of course the mead/cider blend is fantastic, even if I only get to have a couple of mugs since I've made a deal with my girlfriend to be the designated sober driver.

My Halloween was quite eventful. My dog decided to try and swallow a piece of scrap leather that was about 15x5cm, and I only knew that because after a few hours of him making these strange hiccup/vomit motions and me loving on him because I thought he was sick, I heard him make the noise and then a chewing sound; so I reached into his mouth and pulled the piece of leather out of his throat. I had felt so bad for him that whole time he was acting strange, and all the while it was caused by his own buffoonery. I have no idea how he got the leather in the first place, but he's now prohibited from being anywhere near any unapproved leather goods.

Re: Shooting snowballs 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 :)
