How long does this part of the story continue for? 

Not too long, the situation escalates quite quickly to a grand finish for chapter 3

Lovely to read how much you have been enjoying rdr2 Maf. I too have been enjoying rolling around in the world.

I hear your frustration over the world being densely packed but sometimes weirdly empty. I found a path up a mountain and spent a while slipping my way to the top, only to find a flat area with nothing to see.

It does make me wonder if some of these weirdly empty areas are part of a stranger mission or quest I've not got to yet.

I'm on chapter 4 now and the story is still interesting to me. I've just been having so much more fun exploring :)

I’ve done up to the first Braithwaite mission in Chapter 3. Yesterday I started to focus on the challenges a bit more and have now done over half. 

 

There’s one where you have to lasso and drag someone 3300 ft. Do you know how to do that? The game says do it on a flat surface but every time I try the person dies to quickly. I’m wondering if I need to take someone down to the beach and drag them around in circles on the sand 

 

Also one of the sharpshooter ones is shoot off 3 hats in one dead eye. But I really don’t know how to do that without it being a headshot. Considering how you have to shoot the very top of the hat the painted target is relatively large

Maybe don't run?

Tried that. Think you have to do it on a horse, though. So it’s rough going for the guy getting dragged. 

 

Might actually have to google google this one because I can’t figure it out

 

Also couldn’t figure out how to catch 3 small fish without a rod. I did find out using dynamite loses honour, though 🤔

I found an easy way to do this, and have some tips

go somewhere remote (so people don't call teh cops)

drag someone in a circle in a field. I did this with a lemoyne raider, he died after a few hundred feet, but I kept draggin in a circle, and the challenge popped.

I did his by running my horse at full tilt through shallow water, stomp those little fished, then go pick them up.

I've noticed that fish come to investigate dead stuff you drop in the water. I wonder if you could drop in a deer carcass, then stand still and shoot the fishies with a bow and arrow?

 

How many of the stranger missions have you taken part in? some of them are absolutely stunning

Oh, if they don’t need to be alive then that solves it

 

I thought about having the horse kill the fish because I’ve seen it do it before. But last night I couldn’t get it to walk through the pond

The shallow water in the river near the first camp site is where I've got most of my running roadkill

I tried doing the horseman challenge where you ride from Van Horn to Blackwater in under 17 minutes while I was still wanted dead or alive and whoa those lawman just come out of nowhere, huh

Glad you said that. It encouraged me to continue. Holy hell it goes some places there, it was brilliant. I loved it, got much more interesting. Colm is a mofo.

Intense times for Mr Morgan, no?

Definitely. Some amazing scenes followed too. Going to that manor in the dark with the gang was a pretty powerful image.

Just happened across a really interesting article on Polygon about one character's health issues and how it was a fantastic portrayal of a deadly illness.

 

Link!

 

Spoilers in the article, obviously, as it goes into details re the game's story and ending, but safe to say that I definitely won't be playing RDR2 for a while. Don't really fancy putting myself through that, especially given that the writer of the article has CF.

When I played this I was really frustrated that Arthur was always underweight and Ill looking. The system seemed broken and stupid to me, but I guess it really wasn't.
