    "I would feel grateful to the gods on high if we could find one." Gothard replies. "Shall we pause to hunt, then carry what game we find to our camp for tonight?"

    "Yes, and we'll have to gather dry wood for the campfire,"
    He said as he pulled out an arrow of his quiver and looked at the sharpness.

    Gothard likewise pulled out one of his knives. Admittedly not as good for hunting, but it would have to do. He looked about for a landmark, and spied a sharp bend in the river. He pointed to it with his dagger.

    "We shall meet there when we have finished gathering what we need."

    Aside from the occasional crunch of snow beneath your feet, you manage to move mostly silently through the snowy woods.

    Unfortunately, you do not find any rabbit tracks, or at least none that can be followed. You do, however, spot several sets of elk tracks.


    Gothard:
    Spoiler
    Show

    You manage to avoid snapping any twigs, though there are some moments when the snow crunches loudly beneath your feet, or a tree limb clinks against the sword on your back.

    Nevertheless, you eventually find a rabbit. Unfortunately, its already dead, and most of it has been devoured by the various carrion-feeders in the woods. Still, there's a little bit of meat left on it, and most of the bones are intact. The meat may not be fit for human consumption, but it may have other uses, while the bones could perhaps be used for a stew or something.

    Perhaps luck was upon him, sure elk was much bigger game and bit more difficult, but if he could hunt himself a small calf, he and Gothard could manage themselves for maybe three days. Maybe.

    He then begins to Track down these elk tracks.

    Well...rotted rabbit flesh doesn't strike Gothard as being terribly useful. Nevertheless, he will gather the small bones of the creature, which could still make good marrow for a stew.

    For stew though, he will need a fire. Gothard shifts his focus to seeking out dried wood and branches for the night's fire, hoping he will fare a bit better.

    Gothard packs the firewood in his sack, around the corpse of the bunny, so that it won't get on the rest of his gear too much.

    On the way back towards the bend, he'll look for some things to add to his bare-bones stew. Mushrooms growing in soft damp dirt, or soft roots to boil down, bitter though they may be.

    You manage to find a few non-toxic mushrooms, as well as a small juniper bush. While most of its berries have been eaten by birds, there are more than enough left to provide you with a full meal.

    Not far in the distance, you hear a twig snap.

    You race forth into the heart of the wilderness, leaping over fallen trees and ducking low-hanging branches in your pursuit of the elk. You can now hear the galloping of their hooves, and after a few moments of running, you begin to catch fleeting glances of their majestic figures bounding amongst the trees and rocks ahead of you. If you took a shot now, if may miss, but trying to get a better shot would mean having to maintain the pursuit for longer.

    The squirrel is not expecting your attack. Unfortunately, its sitting up on a tree limb, so all you manage to do is jump up and hack the branch off the tree. Still, the squirrel is caught off guard, and falls to the ground. Its cute chittering is probably squirrel talk for horror and fear, and it begins to frantically scurry towards the trunk of the tree.

    The arrow flies free, but fails to meet its mark. The baby elk weaves around a tree, and the arrow buries itself in the bark of the sapling rather than the flesh of the fawn.

    Acting with haste and cursing his foolishness, Gothard attempts once more to skewer the squirrel upon his blade. He knows it isn't terribly heroic to eat squirrels, but he would prefer to know at this early stage that he can rely on his wits to keep his hunger sated. And he shall not back down so easily.

    ...Even if his foe is tiny and fuzzy.

    Gothard continues to press the attack. He is so glad that nobody else is here to see this. Other than his ancestors perhaps. But he can bear the burden of their shame...what he could not bear is the jeers of little boys from his childhood teasing him for trying to chase after a squirrel. Bad...bad memories...

    You throw yourself forward, slamming your blade down as you sprawl yourself out in the snow. With a sickening squelch, the dagger rends through the back of the squirrel and pins it to the ground. The poor creature squeaks, spasms twice, and then dies, its warm blood slowly spreading out onto the snow beneath it.

    Hmm...no sign of his traveling companion...but he will find his way back in time...for now, Gothard will work on preparing his meal.

    Looking at his supplies, however, he finds that he lacks the tools to prepare his meat. His first order of business, therefore, is to make proper tools.

    He shall search for a stone with a sharp edge and hard composition, with which to chisel. Once he has found an appropriate stone, he shall test it against a large piece of wood, attempting to make a basin or bowl in which to hold river water.

    Once these basic tools are made, he shall fill the basin with water, beneath which he shall light a fire, then add the rabbit bones, squirrel flesh, and mushrooms to make a nourishing, if somewhat gamey soup.

    Ah but first, the tools.

    With an agonize neigh, the elk falls to its knees, another arrow jutting from its lower back. It shakily tries to regain its footing, but after a moment it collapses into the snow, which is rapidly staining crimson from the blood freely running down its body.

    You find a few chunks of a wood, as well as a few rocks. Whether they are sharp or strong enough to hack through wood, though, is questionable.
