Frequently Asked Questions

Free Accounts

I created a character and now I'm unable to log in with that account. What happened?

One of two things may have happened with your character.
  1. Your character's name consisted of less than five letters so the game thought it was a spam character.
  2. You haven't logged into your free account within a month so it was purged.

Trash cans can be found in the diner, gas station, general store and tavern within the fishing village. There are no other trash cans in the game as of yet.

STW Upgrade Purchases

What are death-free cards and how do they work?

A death-free card is exactly what it sounds like. It allows you to escape dying within the game, allowing you to keep your inventory and stats like health and energy intact.


If I buy something like pop cans or gifts and I just happen to die, do I lose everything?

If you do not have a death-free card, this is an unfortunate "yes". Your corpse and all your items will be laying on the ground in the place where your character died. It is likely that you can retrieve these items if you are quick enough. Unfortunately, there are more people than not who enjoy looting items from player corpses so it is extremely unlikely that you will be able to retrieve all your lost items.

Quest Solutions

The canipy_search quest (located within the Arid Grassland)

Go to the arid grassland and find the spring in the northeast corner. In the middle of the spring there is a banana tree that is at least 45 tiles high. Climb this tree and you will be in a canipy approximately 11 tiles from north to south, 11 tiles from east to west and 2 tiles thick. The very large leaf will be somewhere within the canipy.

The wolf_mystory quest (in the Windy Wolf Forest)

  2. When you have the corpse, accept the firstt quest.
  3. When done, go to the hidden lake in the northern valley wall (take a look at the how to get to the hidden lake guide above)
  4. When you r down in the lake, dive down to the bottom with pagedown. You will find oysters there, and a wolfskin coat. Take that. You are done with the first quest.

The golden_hon_highdout quest (Also within the Windy Wolf Forest)

Other hints and tips

Amusing Things to Try

  1. In the cavehouse of the ancient wolf people, you are able to cook food on the eternal fire

Animals (hunting and butchering)

  1. When hunting bears, make sure you have very high energy. You will be killed off easily otherwise.
  2. To help you easily Hunt wolves in the Windy wolf forest, there is a stone alcove cut into the northern valley wall that you can stand in and pick them off that way as they cannot walk on stone.
  3. If you want to butcher animals like wolves and bears, it's a good idea to make sure your knife has a low sharpness to prevent cutting yourself when finished.

Free Accounts

Note, free accounts can only hold one hundred of any specific item.
  1. It is generally a good idea to keep cooked meat in skillets unless your hunger gets too high because you cannot put meat back in once it is taken out and skillets hold ten meat.
  2. You might want to keep your bags of items such as cups, flairs, string and weapons because they cannot be re-packaged once opened.

General

  1. If you must drink water, make sure to fill cups, pots or waterbottles and use those to drink from. Drinking by just pressing the spacebar on a body of water has a high chance of giving you the minthurst virus.
  2. It is safe to drink from the spring northeast of the mainland and from the spring in the northwest corner of the Windy Wolf Forest
  3. Combining a knife with a high sharpness level with your empty hand will cause you to cut yourself and lose a sizeable amount of health.
  4. Combining glass with your empty hand will cause you to cut yourself and lose a sizeable amount of health.
  5. Combining a battery with water will cause you to receive an electric shock and lose health.
  6. Pressing space on a fire if you have two empty hands will cause you to burn yourself and lose around five health per press.
  7. After climbing to the top of a high tree, it is a good idea to sit down to avoid accidentally pressing the arrow keys and falling to your death
