R & R / Re: The Long Dark (bring a sweater)
« Last post by MTK20 on Today at 11:37:39 AM »
Got the answer to my own question. Yes. The wolf's name is "fluffy" as christened by the community.

She lives in the hydrodam and is said to be a death trap to new players. On very rare occasion you can kill fluffy and a second wolf will spawn. Some say that fluffy is cruel, however we must realise we are the ones, who are bad house guests. After all, those granola bars, first aid supplies, and crow bar are hers; not ours  :P.

An indicator of a wolf being in the hydrodam is a deer carcass being right outside of the building. I find this unsettling, because while I didn't see a wolf in the dam, there was a frozen deer carcass just outside the door  :shocked. Seeing as I've heard players get killed by "fluffy" while at over 90% health, I'm beginning to think the dam may be a "no go" place. It's just not worth the risk.

Looking straight out from the door of the Hydrodam, you will see some railroad tracks and little bridge going over a bit of a gully.
Go across that bridge and follow those tracks.  About a quarter mile you will find an area that opens up to the left.  There is a lake and a Forestry Cabin with lots of goodies.  Around that lake on the other side are cabins.  And on that lake, scattered about are fishing huts.
Loot everything from the Dam, take it to that Cabin.  Because it's rather centralized and you can make a fire in there.  It's a good HQ for that Map.

Do wolves ever spawn inside the dam? It seems really expansive and rather creepy  :shocked. I couldn't see much in there and I had hypothermia. I also didn't want to waste all of my matches/flares.

Well, I died my first death in the long dark. I started at the first location but got turned around  :facepalm. Couldn't find a single building but the hydrodam. Got a gun and two hatchets, but not any food or clothing really and in the end, that is what did me in  :(.

I know two old fluffers like this here on the EBCI Rez. Few and far between but cool to know.

General Non-Firearms Discussion / Re: Brexit!
« Last post by stephendutton on Today at 04:18:36 AM »
Article 50 has yet to be invoked. Before the vote the PM had been saying he'd invoke it right away but mow that he's been caught out and resigned he isn't going to be the one invoking it. According to the PM he will be handing over to a new leader in October and it will be for them to invoke Article 50. However, the EU seem to want to get started on negotiations before that because they are worried about the ramifications of more countries holding referendums of their own and some members of the PM's own party want him to go sooner as well. Once Article 50 is invoked there is a period of up to 2 years for negotiations, although this can be extended if all the remaining EU members agree.
Of course there is the 'nuclear option'. Repeal of the European Communities Act would simply see the UK drop out of the EU immediately but this would leave nothing in place and likely cause absolute chaos without there being any agreements in place regarding travel or trade.

The last day has also shown up what poor losers some of the remain side are. Yesterday morning there was a crowd outside the home of Boris Johnson (former Mayor of London who was a leading figure in the Brexit campaign) yelling abuse at him while others are demanding another vote because the Brexit side did not get 60% of the vote and the turnout was 'only' 72%. These are numbers they appear to have just pulled out of one of their own orifices and if the result was a narrow remain win I'm certain they wouldn't be asking for another vote. There's also the only to be expected outpouring on social media from celebrities who think their fame gives them some special insight.

My initial post was deleted for some reason.
I congratulate the people in your nation that voted to leave the EU and restore Britain's national sovereignty.
As I alluded to in my first post, it remains to be seen if the powers that be will actually honor the will of the people. Unfortunately if they do not, there isn't much you can/will be able to do to enforce that will. At that point it will be abundantly clear that you and your countrymen (as well as all of the populace of the EU) are in fact serfs and not citizens.

Either way there is going to be a great deal of turmoil until things settle into the new order. Be of good cheer and stay the course and hopefully things will turn out for the best.

She should acquaint herself with the work of the giants of the past.

Jack Kirby
Jim Steranko
Osamu Tezuka
Frank Thorn
John Buscema
Steve Ditko
Frank Miller
Richard Corbin
Jean "Moebius" Giraud

These men (and many others) crated some of the most iconic styles in comic illustration and their influence is still felt to this day. Many of them were excellent writers as well

Rifles / Re: Which scout rifle--anybody own one and has any input?
« Last post by coelacanth on Today at 02:14:48 AM »
I don't own one but there are lots of reviews online if you type in  -  scout rifles rated  -  in the search box of your browser.  Might be some help in deciding which way to go.   Some of the reviews tend to color outside the lines a bit and expand the concept beyond what Col. Cooper originally proposed but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

While it doesn't fit Col. Cooper's strict definition of a Scout rifle, I have the Springfield Scout-Squad M1A. I put a Fred's mil surplus fiberglass stock on it to lighten it up a bit. I love it. I have an Aimpoint PRO to put on it but haven't gotten to that yet. Maybe Monday or Tuesday.
