For a female Clanfellow to become pregnant, the following conditions must be met:

  • She is sleeping in a Straw Double Bed with a Clanfellow who is her Partner.
  • She has not been pregnant within the last 10 days.
  • She is not a Senior.
  • She is not hungry.
  • Both Clanfolk have 75% Mood.

Pregnancy lasts 20 days until the woman gives birth. For the next 20 days the baby will require a lot of attention and the woman will be able to spend less time working than usual. Her Baby Care skill will be used in the care for her child until the Baby becomes a Juvenile.


Animals can only be obtained at the start of the game or bought from Traders. During Winter they require Food, Water, and Shelter, while during the other seasons they can eat Grass and drink Water from Lakes on their own.

If two opposite-gendered animals of the same species spend time near each other, the female may get pregnant. Most animals live 5 days as Baby, 10 days and Juvenile, 48-72 days as Adult and 4-5 days as Senior.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
