I HAEV TEH STICK!
Suddenly, the game seems a hell of a lot easier. I don’t have to spend every day almost dying! I can now catch a few fish with my Spear Of Ultimate Powar, and then dig up a few clams, bung it in with some seaweed and Skye can whip up something disgusting-but-edible that prevents us from having The Longest Sleep. Excellent.
I also found a new area that I couldn’t get to previously, as there was a log to push and I didn’t have the energy to push it. With the Magic of Fish, I was then capable. And I found raspberries!
I wish my backpack could hold a bit more though, since I seem to fill it up every time I wander off somewhere, and I don’t seem to be able to leave stuff with Skye.
