Cooking levels by time cooked, not per item

Recommended Posts

Title says it all.  I hate that the best way to level cooking is to harvest tiny bits of meat off animals, cook it and then subsequently having to eat it all one piece at a time.  It would be nice if it leveled like carcass harvesting instead so we could just harvest, cook and eat all the meat in one go per action.

You can do that. Nothing forces you to cheese the system. I agree though that it's too easy to abuse.

I'm good with the system as is.
The great news is that this game is all about player choice.  If there is something in the game we can do, but we don't like it... we can just opt to not do that

However, it is does make a certain amount of sense to be able to do this... the harvesting system allows for carving off smaller chunks of meat, so it stands to reason we would be able too cook that meat.  It would also stand to reason that the more we do a certain task the more proficient we would get at performing that task regardless of how big the piece of meat is.

Consider it kind of like using sticks and a magnifying glass... you can start a fire with one stick, let it burn out, and then light more little fires for as long as the sun is shinning (and you have enough tinder - until it's not required that is).  Just like cooking, it doesn't mater how big the fire is... what gets you better at it is lighting the fire to begin with.  :) 

If it was viewed as an issue by the Hinterland team... I'm sure they'd have addressed it.  Otherwise, I'd just call it creative gameplay...  It's up to each player to choose who they live within the framework of the world that's been provided for us.  Me personally, I chose not to do this... but I wouldn't want to take that option away from another player that does.

I'm all for this.
