I'm running a Session where my players spend long times on their own in woods / planes (etc.) and need to feed themselves from their surroundings. So I wrote a hunting / gathering program that determinate what animals / plants etc. are in the region and how likely it is for the hunting party to find them in a given situation. I filter on the season, climate, terrain type, etc.
So, on my first shot I just guessed about the most common stuff I could think about. Then I read some hunting books (of recent date) and found out that I was completely wrong in about everything.
So now I'm looking for resources on how likely it is to meet defined animals / plants etc.
Anyone know some good resources for that? (I am totally willing to spend some time with the analysis and interpretation of the data. If you have resources that are 'near' what I search, please give them too.)
I would prefer online or other digital resources but I take anything else as well.
