Rules of Survival

These are few of the rules you should follow in order to survive 
– Enemies can hear gunshots, so don’t try to hunt stags in the middle of the night, if you want to survive until dawn 
– Don’t be careless. Conserve your ammunition and bear traps, because there aren’t many of those, and, trust me, you’ll need them 
– Don’t stay out too long. 4 PM is an optimal hour to head back home, if you still have it. Wendigo is hard to track in the night, especially on low gamma 
– Make use of the cameras. They can work as a light source, a map marker and as an enemy radar, because they register movement and warn you 
– If you plan on going out at night, place some meat far away from the destination you are heading to. It will lure Wendigo away from you and keep you partially safe 
– When you encounter Wolves at night, just run. If you shoot them, as I said, Wendigo will find you, and you can’t just shoot him to death. 
– Use your surroundings to your advantage – hide on rocks, run where enemies can’t access you and hide out of their sight 
And the most important rules of all 
– Join our discord 
– Follow SmirkStick on Twitch 
– Report the bugs on our discord or on Smirk’s streams 
– Have Fun ! 

What is Wendigo and Strigoi

Legend about Wendigo has many diffrent versions, but this is the most popular one.: 
Wendigo is a mythic beast, that controls the dead, and cursed the alive ones. It is a tall, humanoid-shaped creature with animal’s skull instead of a face. Most important part of his body is his frozen heart. In order to defend yourself you’ll need to melt it. Wendigo is said to appear in North America, and it originated from old native Americans’ stories. Sources say, that Wendigo is created whenever someone is rejected by his loved one. When the sun shines, he has a human form, and attacks people that have similarities to his human form, but at night it takes his monster form. Some legends say, that his body is partially made of ice, and he either has a deer skull or a deer’s head. Some of his bones are shown, and often bloody. When Wendigo chooses his victim, he makes it paranoid and drives him to insanity. When his victim is helpless, and can’t differ what is real and what isn’t, he attacks, and rips his victim’s body apart. Wendigo’s night form can be up to 13 feet in height, so trying to fight him alone is foolish. 
Strigois originated in Romania, and they are said to be a troubled spirits that can take an animal’s form, or even turn invisible. Strigois feast upon victim’s blood. To keep yourself safe, you need to take similar steps as when encountering a vampire – pierce his heart with a stake, turn the body face down and bury it, pierce his forehead with a nail, and put a clover of garlic under his tongue. They can be extremly fast, and often attack in packs. Sun can damage their real form, so when sun shines, you are safe from them. They are demons that rise from dead’s body, so in order to get rid of them for good, you’ll need to cleanse the tomb where the Strigoi’s dead body lays.
