Hunter's Rest

Hunter's Rest is a shack in the hills near Moss Mother Cavern inhabited by two Elk hunters.

The building is a one-room shelter, which is home to two hunters that poach game in the surrounding area and sell the various meats and pelts.

Hunter's RestEdit

This homey little camp offers some respite to weary adventurers. The hunters who live here sell various meats and pelts. Outside is a cooking spit hanging over a campfire. There are many joints of raw venison both outside and inside the shack; taking any of these is considered stealing. There is an elk carcass on a table against the west wall of the shack that you can freely harvest for its hide and meat and possibly either small or large antlers. Beside the table is a tanning rack. A wood chopping block can be found on the east side of the house. On a flag pole, to the east of the wood chopping block is a beehive.

Inside the house, there is a taproot behind the keg on the table. To the right of the table along the north wall is a row of three empty weapon racks. There are two bedrolls on the floor to the south, with a copy of the Archery skill book Father Of The Niben between them. There is an unlocked chest against the east wall containing minor random loot. Beside the chest is a food barrel, and above the chest, on the wall, is a weapon plaque.


There seems to be a bug with buying and selling items from one or both Hunters. When buying items, the item is purchased, your gold is taken, and item is placed into your inventory, however the Hunter's gold remains the same. When selling items, the item is sold (removed from inventory), however you are neither compensated nor does the hunter's gold diminish.
