Climb a tree (if you're in the forest). Advantages: Likely not going to get spotted by passing people, can see anyone within a mile of you, pull a surprise attack on anyone within that range --- Disadvantages: Hunger, wasps, get very little rest (because it would be hard to sleep there)
Also need to add "Rest", "Build a shelter" to the OP.
What would building a shelter do?
I know a negative would be that you are easy to spot.
Not in the night time...but in the day if anyone passes by (they have to be in the exact square as you) you're toast. But in the day time, the person in the tree can see anyone within 2 miles of him. And can pull a surprise attack. In the night time, can only see 1 mile away. If we're adding beasts...can they climb trees? If it can't...it can still smell, find, and corner you pretty easy. And unless you have a bow and arrow, or throwing knifes, you're stuck. And you're gonna have to wait him out until he gets too hungry and has to leave..or you get too hungry and have to get down so you don't die. If it CAN climb...well, you're dead if it comes close. So I would suggest it not being able to climb.
There should also be an element of "water" in the game. We need more than food to survive. But if we drink it straight out of the river, there would be a risk of getting really sick? Slowly bringing our health down and making it tougher for us to move/fight? But there could be an option "boil the water to make it safe to drink". But to make it so everyone automatically boils it without thought...if you just drink it straight, you can still make a move. For example, if you're 1 mile away from water. You can move/attack 1 mile to the water, drink, and keep going. If you boil it, that is your action for the day. Boiling water will be tougher for those without good survival skills. And considering you have to make a fire, if someone is close by, it could give away your position. In the day, you'd have to be like 1 mile away, cause you can see the smoke. In the night, you can be 2 because you can see the fire...
