Ahatch Posted January 22 Share Posted January 22 I have been playing The Long Dark for a long time and I had an interloper run wiped that had 800 days where I had stayed at all major regions 50 days and had 100% of the world visited so when the new update came out I decided I would build a survival run with the goal of staying in this new region 50 days. So I started a new run which started me on Desolation Point. I managed to survive the initial looting route I took which brought me through Coastal Highway, The Ravine, Mystery Lake then Pleasant Valley where I finally located the hammer. I then went to Thomson's Crossing and made my way back to The Riken through the coal mine. Armed with the bow and arrows I stuck around Desolation Point for a while after I shot the bear from the ship. I managed to stay long enough to get my bear coat before returning for another brief stint at Coastal Highway before hunkering down in Mystery Lake. Once I got my archery to level 5 along with cooking I made the journey to Forlorn Muskeg and then stayed on Broken Railroad for a while then when I felt I was ready I made the journey to Forsaken Airfield. I arrived at the Junkers trailer and stayed there a couple days but food was scarce so I packed everything up and made for the Hangar. Once there I stayed for a while after I killed 3 wolves that were patrolling nearby then I bagged 2 deer behind my base. After a while I realized I needed to make the journey across the map to the island cabin for a bit of fishing. Needless to say this is a very challenging region as I'm kind of trapped on this island. The weather is horrible with wind and glitter fog. I killed the bear patrolling near the fish hut. I took his hide but fear the weather will prevent me from harvesting the meat. My condition is below 20% and insomnia is not a good thing as my condition level is low and weather too crappy to cook outside. I also made the mistake of not packing my improvised axe as there are some barrels here to break down for fire wood. I have not used the work bench at the hangar and will likely pack everything up and return to Junkers for crafting as I think I need to go double bear coat here as the cold is nasty. I find this region somewhat like Pleasant Valley but I find the distance between warm shelter a problem and am having trouble getting turned around a bit trying to escape this trap I am in. I found myself going in circles a bit when some fog rolled in when I made the mistake of veering off my straight course. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
