    Dealing with objects that are scared of you is a useful skill in RNT.

    How many deer do you have to match? I have the best luck with a fairly open room, and then chasing them around until they’re all in one corner. Failing that, an axe will stun a deer for a few turns, long enough to catch it and move it to a better spot.



    I find it helpful to build a corral in the corner. For example, if I need 4 deer together, I take objects that I won’t need for a nearby door and build a two-high wall about 2-3 spaces away from the vertical wall in a corner. Then I can herd the deer into the corral, but not have to worry about them scurrying back out to the middle of the map if I walk too close.

    Not sure if the description will cut it, so I’ll try to illustrate in text.

    x = object (can be anything that is movable, stays still, and that you don’t need for a door elsewhere. trees/shrubs/gophers/etc.)
