Hey All!

It's neat to see all of the forum posts that go up in other languages! I must admit though that I am terribly Anglo and so cannot participate personally :)

Like the topic said, I was just curious where the various folks on the forums hail from. If I missed your country be sure to leave a comment so it gets recognized. My apologies but you're only allowed 20 items in a poll so I'm sure I'm missing some people :(

I'm basically taking my most inclusive guess based off a really old info graphic (http://gamingshogun.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/long-dark-infographic.jpg) and the language list from the international forums page. Consider this as a very informal census to replace the new forum's missing country badges :)

As for me, I'm from good ol' Ontario, Canada :normal:

I'm from Germany, too. And I'd like to predict that the vote results are gonna change a lot during the course of the day once our American fellows will start to awaken from their slumber. :excited:

North east of England.  Hopefully I'm not the only one from England. Be a shame if I was. One of my best all time games

I lived 8 years in the Seattle area.  I miss it.  One of the best places I've ever lived. :)

I'm in Australia. Here's a shot from a clearing in a walking track a little ways from my house. Not exactly the winter wonderland of Great Bear Island, but I like it. :P Rainforest.thumb.JPG.50f851eeb84da61bfe7

Other European :)

I've been to Australia once - stayed for about a week near Parkes, NSW - and brought back great memories. It's a beautiful place.

I'll be honest, I didn't even know ferns could grow that big! It's a little too cold for them here :)

You shouldn't be. The UK is one of the 10 ten countries for sales of the Long Dark, Whether they're on the forums though...

Now you're just making me jealous :P

I lived in Calgary for a summer working. Still miss the mountains. I was going up to hike every other weekend ^_^

You are definitely not, good sir! @illanthropist comes to my mind as being most British. There are others, too, but I can't connect names to countries right now. o.O

Tree ferns are pretty amazing  - they basically keep making fronds on top of fronds, the older ones dropping off after what seems like only a few weeks (I have four shading a pathway and I seem to be forever clearing these giant fronds!) and it builds a trunk of sorts that way. The fronds themselves are practically hollow, very lightweight but sturdy enough to hold up even when saturated with water. They'd be great for thatching and there is no shortage of them - these things just don't stop. It's a rainforest thing, everything is built like a racecar designed to reach the sun. 

I'll get a photo of a really awesome one that shows off just how versatile they are - the trunk twists 90 degrees twice over to snake it's way to the sunlight and it is in no danger of falling over.

Boulder Colorado, originally from Wisconsin.  This is the view from my neighborhood except that we have snow atm.  (I'm lazy, so I just grabbed a pic from Wikipedia.) :P

I'm from Arizona but live in Germany (Mainz)  ... I see I have a lot of company from this neck of the woods.  We should do a The Long Dark fest!

The cliffs are a few minutes east of the city.  Easy access for everyone to see.

Currently living in Sebring Florida, but have lived all over previously. As a West Coast Navy vet, I was stationed in Bremerton Washington for four years, and worked on the WSF ferryboats for two more years before I came back to FL. Loved it up there in WA.

Argentina, Salta here :3

I suppose you have to go quite high into the mountains there to find snow?

Yeah, but a long time ago (say 13 years) it snowed in my house, it was the only time I saw snow in my life.

Italy Here. About 100 kms NE of Rome,in The umbria Region. Doesn't really snow in my town,but we're surrounded by mountains. I've been there sometimes with friends in the past years camping. It was Amazing and i really miss the feeling of making camp and being around the fire at night. We did that only in summer. I'll leave a pic of my area Terni_panorama_1.jpg

Mountain area where i camped is on the far left of the mountain zone. There's a church built where a roman sanctuary was in the old times,and all around there are a couple of watchtowers probably built in the middle ages. During WWII partisans used to move around the area. I'm really missing my buddies. Camping alone could be cool,but even dangerous so... :(


Another nice place we have near my town are the Marmore Falls. Highest one in all Europe :P
