  1. Except he wasn't wrong in that it does connect to somewhere. The point is that Forlorn Muskeg, Pleasant Valley and Coastal Highway are all accessed from Mystery Lake.
  2. Well technically yes. Since the Mystery Lake Region description in your screenshot has only Coastal Highway and Pleasant Valley listed and not Forlorn Muskeg as well. However there IS a way into Pleasant Valley and Coastal Highway and Forlorn Muskeg from Mystery Lake. It's just a matter of finding them all.
  3. That is kind of a teleport recovery feature that kicks in should one fall out of the map. Depending on where you are when you you fall out you'll teleport back to a stable location somewhere else.
  4. Nope all the descriptions are in fact correct (once they add Forlorn Muskeg to the Mystery Lake Region select). Coastal Highway does connect to Mystery Lake, PV and Desolation Point. Mystery lake does in fact connect to Forlorn Muskeg, Pleasant Valley and Coastal Highway. Oh there's a way to get from Mystery Lake to Pleasant Valley unfortunately it doesn't include any dam mountain climbing. So to restate: Forlorn Muskeg, Pleasant Valley and Coastal Highway do all in fact connect to Mystery lake. One simply has to discover the Transition zone from Pleasant Valley to Mystery Lake....or the other way around. And there is a clue in this post on how to get from PV to Mystery Lake.
  5. Or we could find Solar Showers...like those you can use when camping.
  6. I have always used the random map start...and that hasn't changed since Forlorn Muskeg. I have yet to start there...but I absolutely LOVE Forlorn Muskeg! The three times I've entered the map to explore I never left it alive...but it as a BEAUTIFUL wasteland and a true challenge! The Long Dark just keeps getting better and better...now if only my Rifle wouldn't fall through the ice/snow every once in a while.
  7. Last night on the Muskeg I did some harvesting!
  8. My first explore of Forlorn Muskeg has been exciting and beautiful!
  9. My go to gaming site has written up a new review piece on the latest TLD build...and it's really good! https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2017/01/09/the-long-dark-sandbox-review/#more-422385 Congratulations Hinterland!
  10. Here's the view from my back porch.
  11. My current survivor is Reg Anderson a "Deep Country" as he would put it Doc. He was flying a private plane to deliver medical assistance when he went down due to electrical system failure.
  12. Dr. Reginald "Reg" Anderson was en-route to Pleasant Valley to provide emergency Medical Assistance when his plane went down due to multiple system failures. He awakens to find himself alive, and mostly unhurt but his plane is nowhere to be found. Moving to stay warm he stumbles across a small Coastal Town hoping to find people instead he finds questions. (Random start location, Voyageur Difficulty, 2 Active Feats, Current Ongoing Series at this time).
  13. Them Pleasant Valley folks sure are really Sarcastic!
  14. Bug added to the database...misspelled dropped in the title...LOL.
  15. Thank you! I wanted to get a little creative. I'll share a few more over the next few days. For instance:
