Fir It was always so cold out, he thought he could freeze at any moment. He tried to remember what the Summer was like, but the days had dragged on so long he couldn't. Honestly, he was beginning to question if there ever was a Summer. This place did things to you, did things to your mind. You never knew what was real, what was imagined. For all he knew he could have lived in this world all his life.. but if that was true shouldn't surviving just from day to day be easier than this? He was always so hungry, and everything he met immediately tried to kill him. A village full of Werepigs in the middle of the night, a savannah full of Beefalo during mating season.. one time he'd accidentally wandered towards a circle of little stone huts. He thought he'd finally found someone to help him, but the residents just stared in bewilderment before chasing him down with painful darts and hunting dogs. He'd barely managed to get rid of them, he thought his life was over for sure that day. Now every perilous day was filled with anger, red hot anger at what this world was doing to him. That's why he was caught so off guard when the Treeguard attacked him. He'd been in the forest, and made the terrible mistake of taking his anger out on the trees. Each one that hit the ground felt so good, like knocking over bowling pins. But that's when the footsteps started. He had to squint to see it, the thing had completely blended in with all the other evergreens around it. Anger turned to surprise, surprise turned to fear. He'd never seen something so huge in his life.. and it was coming straight for him! For once he thought he would have to fight something he couldn't handle, something that would kill him. Oh, sure, he fought valiantly. You always do when you're fighting to survive. He even did some damage, but he was no match for the Treeguard. Every swipe cut into his flesh, left splinters on his skin. It was painful, and after a while it became too painful to carry on. All he could smell was pine. He collapsed in front of it, bleeding out into the snow. As the lumbering Treeguard slumped away from his dying body, his eye slowly closed. Deerclops was no more. --- Oh hey, you're still reading this post. Well, I'll take that to assume you liked the story enough to finish it! I like making short stories, so if you thought this was good feel free to throw a concept at me that I can cook up into a fun little tale.
Hello, dear reader! Are you ready to witness heroic tales firsthand about.. wait, what? You thought this thread was about.. say that again, I must have misheard. Oh.. I didn't mishear you.. and you came into this thread anyways?! Well, I'm sorry I couldn't titillate your desire for mimes going the way of Tarzan, I'm sure there's an obscure website out there somewhere that will cater to your specific need, but I promise an exciting post nonetheless! I've been on this forum for about two months, give or take a week, and I have grown to absolutely adore (the majority of) you guys! Now, I've yet to talk much about my own worlds or even mention my latest achievements (aside from that Treeguard thing) without being asked directly, so I've decided it's about time I show you all what I do in Don't Starve! It's been a long time since I was the feeble forager struggling to get through my first winter with Willow, but even so when I first got Wes I was too afraid of the high metabolism to give him a serious attempt. Tonight I realized that was absolutely ridiculous. I'll be using this thread to chronicle my adventures with the greatest character in Don't Starve, Wes! So far I've gone twenty days and I'm trying to prepare for my next Winter. Now, onto the pictures. My camp so far! My map so far. A short list of my accomplishments (and lack of accomplishments) thus far: Set up campDiscovered ChesterDiscovered Pig KingDiscovered Ring Thing, Crank Thing and Metal Potato ThingDiscovered Maxwell's DoorAttained LureplantHave yet to discover BeefaloHunted first KoalefantMy primary reason for making this thread is to hear the communities' opinions on my playstyle as I update, and tips/suggestions on what to prioritize as I go. I plan to keep this thread alive until I either die or use the Teleportato, when particularly notable events happen I'll post with screenshots!
