Haha. Thank you Don't Starve Wiki! Did you figure things out yourself? I died too much and lost hours of my life before I started looking for help online.
Have you learned how to deal with the mega-hound-waves? When they come in packs of 15? hhaha good luck
I caved in very early and started looking up recipes :P It's a very impressive wiki!
and yeah I've managed to survive those blasted hounds past day 100 :D Beefalo, rock lobsters and toothtraps ftw!
