I noticed while watching the trapping update that items are carried / placed in the right hand. Will it be possible on release to carry an item in the left hand (Say, a lantern) and pair it with an item (Say, a sword) in the right?
With all the exploration your character will do, will an NPC who regards you as a friend "notice" if you have been gone awhile?
"Oh! [Character Name]! It's been awhile! How have you been?
