Stories / Finally - Made it until the Fall
« on: July 20, 2021, 11:45:47 PM »
i always begin with runaway slave although 2/3 times of beginnings i die within the 1st day. This time I killed all but 1 of Njerpez warriors just by throwing rocks on their faces and then decapitate them with the axe. The snow was red from the bloodshed. I got hurt also and was bleeding but LUCKILY throw my last rocks on and managed to kill the enemy. It was close. 

Of course I collected all of their gear and weapons so I had something to trade with. During the same spring I travelled wounded from far east Kaumo to far west Driik because they are rich. My aim was to get dogs and tools like all the axes. Also nets and fishing rods are vital to me.

I went allover Driik and put up another camp. There was my fishing nets waiting while i went another village further. I traded for 3 dogs and proper set of axes. Not perfect quality all but variety was good even with the knives. I was also lucky with hunting and when faced the heard of reindeers I shot one and ran down another to shoot and my hunting trips where good.

When i felt i got good gear and the 3 dogs i started going east to big no man's land on southern coast where is the river towards north. There i started to build a cabin which is important to proper sleep between the furs  and especially to smoke meat and fish throughout the year. Cellar is always what i build 1st.

I had a visit to north to check out the river. Ended up to Koivula and a girl named Liisi wanted me to escort her to Kaumo which was where i originally started as a prisoner. Was nice to have some woman company but nothing really happened, honestly. I anyway prefer a chubby blond over skinny redhead. As a reward she gave me ( bj ) a hint of where to find a modest treasure which was a pile of masterwork furs x9. I felt i have to travel all over to towns to trade goods for them. I didnt need the furs but the tools, food and dogs.  So after there was a short trip to Reemi region.

I had a boat so from Reemi coast i went back home to my no man's land River near the southern sea. Now I had a house with fenced field (it was too late to start growing anything this year) by river and 8 nets, 4 dogs, crossbow, fine bow, plenty of broadhead arrows, seeds, fine fishing rod.

in the late summer/early fall i was checking out new not-mapped areas near my home. I ran into a bear. Literally. Of course i saw it from distance but with my dogpack i felt confident i could hunt it down. But the dogs where behind me and i was running towards the beast with a bow and bh-arrow it ran against and hit me. I was badly hurt and my game almost ended there. Usually I try to avoid thatkind of risks after playing hours and hours. I had a severe crush in the chest and bad bite on a hip bleeding . So my dogs put down the bear, i was so worried about them but no dog got hurt. Next 1-2 weeks i couldn't stand up and that made things difficult. Couldnt skin and butcher the bear.

Making bandages is expensive and i didnt even have enough materials so i knew i could use the help from the Sages in the towns. I measured the nearest culture would be Driik so i crawled all the way there. every 30 mins i had to have a break and i tear my clothes to make bandages and i was lucky to carry herbs which i still think made a difference with not getting infected. I was rich still having masterwork furs from the treasure so i knew could trade more stuff in Driik.

In Driik i used my old campsite where in the cellar there was reindeer bones which i could use to feed the ever-hungry dogs. After trading in Driik all i could - all i needed - i left back home. Still crawling. That was a lot of crawling.

So i recovered. Most of the time there was no bandages but i put leaves of the herbs and also ate the same plant - dont know if that has any effect. I went back home my house. The building is 4 wide and 3 high. It has a bed and a fireplace. It has a door on every wall and plenty of windows. Next to it is my shelter which i use to store leather/clothes/furs. I know it doesnt need that but just to keep order in my camp. It always gets full of stuff left over everywhere.

I happened to have a very good elk skin but no fat and it was new to me that u can only harvest the tanning material on certain time of the year so i was hurrying to find anything to hunt and get the fat. If only i could use the fat on my own belly.   :P

1st i shot Njerpez warrior easily but his dog managed to runaway with my two broadhead arrows shot on it. No fat gained whatsoever.

Then i ran into a pack of boars. I sent my dogs after them. When one was tired i shot it and killed it with the sword gotten from a njerpez. I left the boar dead right there to get another one - thinking i would come later to process the body. So my dogs ran down another one and i tried to stab that also but got hurt and bad bleeding. I had to stop to stop the bleeding so i sent my dogs for the pig whigh was very near by. All this happened on a daylight on a mire so the visibility was good. One dog ended up dead. The gray one which was always the hungriest. Other 2 dogs got hurt and one was just fine. But i killed and butchered the wild boad and returned to do the same to the previous one left behind.

I had 2 boar skins, and a "winter dog-skin". Plus plenty of boar and dog meat. I sacrified a lot for that lost dog... I am planning to make a hat out of that dog fur.

Wounds are healing. I am well and alive. I have never played the game until the first winter but it is coming. The winter is coming. Can't wait.

Cheers, brothers and sisters

Suggestions / vitamins
« on: July 20, 2021, 04:51:39 PM »
 i am suggesting the player character to has to eat fish/meat products for fat-soluble vitamins and vegetable sources (maybe excluding grain) to get water-soluble vitamins.

Might sound crazy but i read the book about Magallaes sailing from south america towards asia and that was only <100 days travel and men were dying out of scurvy disease, lack of vitamin C (altough they didnt know vitamins and what caused them to get sick and die).

when you look how detailed the hidework process is in URW - would be on a line to have the character's nutrition matter. Now you can survive years only eating fish and bread which wouldn't be possible in reality.


Bug reports / Bull tied in place v3.62

i tied a leashed bull in to tree. Then i cut the tree. Now i cant pick up the rope. So the bull is "tied in a place".

Suggestions / Route Points On Wilderness Map
« on: July 26, 2020, 12:13:44 PM »
I suggest the player could make route points on a wilderness map. I would use it when I want to take a scenic look a  round to see potential game or threats. My route would go along the hills so I could see far.

Suggestions / Chop the salmon for dogs
« on: January 23, 2020, 01:29:30 PM »
I can only feed one dog with 9 lbs salmon…. they dont know sharing….

So i am suggesting an option to split the fish to smaller portions.

Gameplay questions / Sleeping with Furs
« on: September 20, 2019, 03:53:32 PM »
I remember sleeping with furs made you sleep better or at least there was a comment about the furs on the bed. Did this change?

Stories / Accidental Conflict
« on: September 19, 2019, 08:06:30 PM »
I started to plant seeds not in the village but right next to it becouse there was already built prepared soil as you all know. So I built fences around my very few spot where i had spread the seeds. One side of the fence Wall was actually inside the village tiles. They didnt bother. So I could build there.

It looked like one villager was stuck inside my fences or for some reason just didnt leave for days. So in order to 'release' him i Unbuilt one piece of the fence that i had built myself within the village tiles. They got angry and told me to stop. I did it again and they attacked me. I even shot one of them with crossbow and he dropped and i cut his throat (he didnt die, at least never found the body….man i'm violent) and i ran away. After days i went to check my 'farmings' and they dont attack me anymore. Maybe i start to build traps in that town….

General Discussion / Board Inflation
« on: September 11, 2019, 08:28:12 AM »
On previous edition, i used to gain easy wealth by Trading a quality splitting axe and just make piles and piles of boards.

Since some update it doesnt work anymore becouse the people answer "we already have enough boards". Good. So now i craft paw-board-traps from THEIR boards - they dont mind - and sell those back to them. Then they dont have boards anymore so i can trade with boards. Then after Trading boards to them i can make more paw-boards-traps from their boards that i traded to them.

Its Still broken.

Stories / Slave escape and killed 3 early
« on: August 20, 2019, 03:16:21 PM »
I always start with being a slave. So I ran away and 3 Njerpez were following me. My charachter is big, fast and strong. I ran and finally turned to look and hided. I saw only 1 Njerpez following and he was breathless after running and didnt have a bow.

I collected 3 rocks and let him see me and follow me. When he was 2-4 tiles away i threw all the rocks in his face. He got hurt. I hit him with my knife. He dropped his axe and fell and i killed him by throwing more rocks on his face. I took his stuff...

I went back to Njerpez camp and let them see me and ran away so that i could isolate only one of them and gave the same rock treatment and hit him to avbdomen with the axe.

I did it to third Njerpez also. In some point I got a scar on the shoulder so I left but what a great start for the game.

The key was to let them be breathless after the chase and recover myself when i let them approach. I never thought of using rocks as a deadly weapon.

Gameplay questions / Robbers ruin my early game
« on: February 25, 2018, 11:21:04 AM »
I dont know how to deal with the robbers, who come in groups of 3 and you cant shoot before the stupid conversation the player character just stands there until they introduce themselves. Then they stab me, take my stuff and stab my dog and Ive spent hours of gameplay and its a sudden end.
Problem is you cant run away before they are right next to the PC.

Gameplay questions / Prognosis for the dog
« on: November 04, 2017, 09:47:46 PM »
My dog got hit By a njerpez. Its got deep cut in elbow and some shallow cuts. It is unable to walk. Its just a short walk to my house in the wilderness.

Any prognosis how long it will take until he can walk?? i put up a shelter next to him and keep feeding him, btw he eats any amount of food now...doesnt disagree...

EDIT; the dog seems to follow where i go on the map but when zoom, it cannot walk.

EDIT 2: i just have to share this, i threw a rock on a flying birg (!), capercaillie maybe, it dropped unconcious(!!!). I walk to it and blunt-hit it with knife to neck twice. It got up and flew away... wtf man seriously.

Gameplay questions / injured dog dropped the stuff?
« on: July 14, 2017, 01:25:02 PM »
I let my dog carry my punt. I sent the dog to pursuit wounded elk. It returned wounded, didnt carry anything, the elk was never found, even it was bleeding.
Might be that i instead just forgot the punt somewhere...
Problem is i lost the punt , any idea how to get it back?   If the dog dropped it it is lost.

Gameplay questions / Daylight
« on: June 30, 2017, 08:49:38 AM »
When doing timberwork or crafting does it make difference if there is complete darkness or daylight?
