I lit a fire to read by while hiding out in the basement of a cathedral on the first night. Burned to death in the flames.
Don't we all eventually burn down a church? Good times...

We should really put out a PSA about using the ovens that can be found in every house (and cathedral basement) to start fires. A ton of people here and on Reddit still don't know about it because it was introduced after the guides on CDDA wiki were written. Would prevent alot of fiery deaths.

Started in the shelter, headed to town, panicked because my hands were freezing, ended up running away from zombies into another pack of zombies.

First, first game? Way back when it was just Cataclysm...

Couldn't find a knife (was quite rare in super old versions of the original game). Starved to death cause I couldn't butcher anything.

My most memorable recent death was a very well geared, skilled survivor... blundering into a turret in a lab - that I had already cleared and explored. I think I went back for more jugs of bleach or something. Yep... I had been 'dealing' with turrets by just closing the door on them and forgetting about them, and well that's how that ended up working for me.

I do remember my first game, since it was only a few weeks ago! Maybe a month. I dunno I'm bad with time.

I started as an evacuee survivor. I went outside and none of you will ever guess what I ran into... A moose! Yes. Believe it lol.
It didn't kill me in the end actually. It chased me straight into town, where a mass of zombies ended up chasing me straight into a house.  I got into a heated kerfuffle with him, bare fists! Annnd lost. I was quite overwhelmed at that point, I was thinking Damn. Was that a moose? I have a lot to learn.

Most of my early games consisted of making a spear heading into town and attempting to spear all the things and eventually failing to do so. Usually due to death by zombies (usually spitters and shockers), surprise basement spiders or both.

Edit I also didn't know back then that you could actually do reach attacks I.e. pressing f to spear from a safer distance. Wish I knew that back then.

early.
Breaking down cats with a hacksaw or torch tends to skill up mechanics rather fast

I was hungry, killed a raccoon and got its meat, I started a fire in a nearby bush to cook the meat, I was getting you were hurt messages but I thought it was the smoke messing with me, when the meal is ready I suddenly see I have like 300 pain and near death, I didn't realize the grass below me could catch fire!

From there I always cook in the pavement...

The construction menu allows you to remove grass now, which is good. Also built a fire pit with 10 stones to contain a fire.

Reminds me of a time where I tried to make a fire pit. The wiki said to make a circle of rocks and that is literally what I did. I was disappointed and tried to avoid cooking with fire wherever possible until now as I know I can make a brazier out of lockers and have an almost eternal flame with enough logs.
