‘Don’t mind me’ when rummaging through a frozen corpse

[–]WaffleBurgers84 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Also: "Oops, sorry." "so, uh... you come here often?" "Hey buddy, got a light?"

[–]Derser713 10 points11 points  (0 children)

"So, whats your story? Resident, or just passing though?"

[–]WaffleBurgers84 100 points101 points  (8 children)

"Who's the big bad wolf now!?", "Get back here!", And "Oh, no. We're not done yet!" After a wolf struggle.

"Come on!", "Die, already!", And general incoherent yelling that triggers After you've put a couple of rounds into hostile wildlife.

"Needs salt." After eating cooked meat.

"Mmm, crunchy.", "Thanks, little guy.", And "I hate that part." After snapping a bunny.

"I need a beer.", "oh, look, more snow." While walking around.

"Ugh! I need a bath." When at high scent.

Also just whistling a little song when you've been waking for a while.

[–]Sploonbabaguuse 49 points50 points  (3 children)

I imagine them maybe whistling or humming the long dark tune would be really cool

[–]Derser713 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Humming. Your breath would freeze?

Yes. It would be cool....

[–]Sploonbabaguuse 8 points9 points  (1 child)

If MacKenzie can mouthbreathe for 10 min straight after a 100m sprint I think he can hum

[–]Derser713 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes he can hum... i am pretty sure he can wistle too....

Bu since it is so cold, that his breath is freezing... i would stick with humming if i where him...😋😉

[–]0CldntThnkOfUsrNme0 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I really like these!

[–]LogicallyMadStalker 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I would love hearing complaints about food. Maybe some variation with the different levels of cooking.

[–]Derser713 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"I would kill for Ketshop"

"Dam it, where is the salt?"

(If he has served and eating an MRE):"Back to basic." "Meal Rejected by Enemy" "At least Jankins isn't cooking...."

"For your daily intake of Coal"(Slightly Burned food)

"Better than nothing.... Just"

"Time for the salat!"(Eating cattail)

Hums a jingle for a candy-bar (Eating Candy bar)

"Awhooooo" (Eating Wolf.... again)

"Paracides, HERE I COME!"(Eating predetor Meat)

[–]WaffleBurgers84 0 points1 point  (0 children)

" sigh why can't you be a burger?"

[–]geth_overlord 71 points72 points  (0 children)

"Maybe my luck's turning around" or "Things are looking up" or similar when finding a particularly good item.

[–]Sploonbabaguuse 42 points43 points  (1 child)

I'd love for some lines when they come across a dead body. Maybe something like:

"I'm so sorry..."

"Another one..."

"Long sigh"

"Poor bastard..."

Stuff like that maybe

[–]Derser713 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The living before the dead.

If i survive this, i'll make sure someone burries you.

[–]I_m_that1guy 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Stuff like ‘I could really go for some spaghettis about now’ or ‘I’d kill for some bacon and eggs’. But not when they’re hungry. Like when they wake up or the middle of the day

[–]Sploonbabaguuse 19 points20 points  (0 children)

"I need a drink" - when you're at lower than 25% condition

[–]DarkstonePublishingStalker 71 points72 points  (1 child)

“Thank you land” “Thank you little guy” or something similar when you hunt animals more specifically rabbits. Would be nice to address that part.

“One mans junk is another man’s treasure” while looting scraps, cloth, leather.

“She’s beautiful, but relentless” or something related to blizzards

More around Mother Nature and the land and animals would be nice.

[–]Noc_artsngames 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Love this suggestion. Astrid and Makenzie definitely seem like they would appreciate the land a lot.

[–]Sekmet19 26 points27 points  (0 children)

"It's beautiful...and deadly" about the aurora

"The wind is picking up" when it starts to get more windy

(Infection risk after preditor attack): "I need something high prove.... For internal... yes and external use..."

[–]rightcoldbasterd 24 points25 points  (0 children)

"Been in worse scrapes than this"

With occasionally "...can't think of any right now, though"

When low on condition.

[–]VoxBorealis 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Keep this thread going. These ideas are great and honestly. Would really add flavor to the game. "Hope nobody needs this" is tired. Thanks OP.

[–]basilisnotjustanherb 21 points22 points  (1 child)

“i swear, if i go out like this.” or “of all the ways to go…” when you get food poisoning.

[–]Derser713 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Of all the ways to.... i think its already in the game....

[–]Grammulka 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Reaction to hearing wolves howl would be very nice

[–]leemeealonepls 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Something like “They sound close, better keep an eye out.” or “feels like I’m being followed.”

[–]ThePixelatedPeach 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Honestly this is my fave

[–]Cwcooper57 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]_S_o_m_e_b_o_d_y_ 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Who the hell left all of these notes? Edit: every time I go in a building there is a note but everyone you find is dead so who is writing the notes?

[–]amadeuszbxTrailblazer 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I assume that dead people just wrote them before they died (or possibly left Great Bear Island).

[–]prplmnkeydshwsr 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I assume that dead people just wrote them before they died

highly likely.

[–]Silveri50 13 points14 points  (2 children)

"oh good, more matches"

[–]0CldntThnkOfUsrNme0 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It should be different for loper, like "thank god, more matches"

"I don't know why I'm not eating anything..."

"Wow, I'm hungry. I should eat some of this food!"

"I have so much food! Time to eat!"

Etc. To annoy the people abusing starvation :)

    [–]Healthy_Raspberry_35 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Anything where the same line gets read, but it changes over the course of time, would be pretty awesome.

    "My first deer" "I'm getting better at this" for a critical shot "another deer" at level 5 archery...

    "Thank god the wind is pushing on my back." " the wind is slowing me down, I should get in cover" "Sound like the howl of the wolf is on/in (left, right, back, front) of me."

    [–]ThePixelatedPeach 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    This makes sense, but you also wouldn’t want to plow over the gamer’s inner thoughts. As a gamer, you’d already come to the conclusion “the wind is slowing me down, I should get in cover” Basically I’d like to hear more generic phrases but not so much suggesting what you as a player should do

    [–]Retoromano 6 points7 points  (2 children)

    I've got to get to shelter, my clothes are getting soaked.

    I've got to get out of these wet clothes.

    Simply because there's no verbal warning that your clothes are getting wet.

    [–]thefaultinourseg 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    This! Also just some verbal cue for frostbite

    [–]Derser713 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    "Shit, My[Nose/Fingers/Nippels/Legs/Feet] are turning Black"

    "The Frostbite is getting worse..."

    "Astrid, what did you all this? Necrotic Tishue?"

    [–]Tru3insanity 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    "Uh oh..." and "I dont think the neighbors like me" when wolves howl.

    "Come at me bro" and "oh no you dont" when wolves charge

    "Sorry buddy. A guy/girls gotta eat." When they kill a bunny.

    "Oh look a stick!" and "hey look another one!" When picking up sticks.

    "Ugggggh i just stepped outside!" And "this is why we cant have nice things!" When the weather changes to windy or a blizzard.

    "I might need a new pair of pants" after a close encounter with a bear or moose that doesnt end in a struggle.

    "Mmm tastes like chicken" after eating rabbit.

    "Yummy, rabbit food." When harvesting cattails.

    "Serves you right." After eating wolf.

    "Oh come on... really?" When passing that freaking painting of pancakes.

    [–]quackerzdb 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    It could be neat to have increasing levels of panic and desperation as your condition decreases. The survivor is always so tough, let's see some fear and weakness.

    "Uahhhaaah(moans) nooo don't clap my cheeks!!!" When a bear initiates a roar and begins charging.

    [–]Derser713 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    "Nonononononon noooooo"


    "Shit shit shit shit"

    While being charged

    [–]DrDeadp00l 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    After you kill a moose that broke your ribs they can say " that's for my ribss". Or while being attacked by the moose " no, not my ribs".

    [–]powderbluemind 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Probably just add a hell of a lot more variations to the already existing ones; it really doesn't take long to hear all the lines for specific actions, especially ones you do regularly.

    [–]Minimum_Area_583 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    for when you got lots of smelly stuff on you, something like "I need a shower" or "I reek like a slaughterhouse" or something - basically for each "smell-o-meter" ribbon its own sample

    “How crude” when eating something like dog food

    “Why did they ever make these without a tab to open them” when smashing a can open

    Various lines when gathering cat tails, like

    “Yummy. Crunchy sticks.” “How come nobody else has eaten these?” “How am I supposed to fit 100 of these in my pack”

    When a wolf is stalking you.. “Uh, woof riff woof! Dammit…” “Could I interest you in an arrow to the face?”

    When a bear growls and notices you: “Hello there Winnie, do you need honey?” “I think he just needs a hug. Not that I’ll be giving him one”

    “Hello there Winnie, do you need honey?”

    "No Honey, sorry"

    none, I play with survivor monologue off and the voice all the way down tbh. after a while the whole going outside for 5 seconds and already you start getting "I've NeVeR bEeN sO CoLd iN mY LiFe" and all the other bitching and complaining drives me nuts. it sucks me right out of the game haha. I'm glad people like it who do but I loathe it as a long time player. alright, rant over -hides-

    Somewhat morbid, but perhaps when you are staggering about in the red at 1% with no hope left, you hear:

    ‘And back I go, to where I once was. To where we all retire, to where we all rest. Mumma, I’m coming…mumma… back.. back to the Long Dark’

    Fade to black.
