Notes

  • Adders inflict Adder Bite wounds, which increase in severity over time and come with a hefty -15 STR per wound. Eventually, the wound will start healing and dissipate. There is a chance that Nerve Damage occurs with adder bites, and it is speculated that it's either from the frequency or amount of adder bites a character has.[1]
  • Extremely bountyful on Mountains, if you own a horse you can obtain many in a short time frame, in return it provides 1x2 Fresh Adder Hides while yielding only 1x1 Adder Hides making it less space efficient.
