Ghillie Suits

Recommended Posts

In case one is not familiar with the concept, or doesn't recognize the term from military sniper footage and/or movies:

The origin of the modern usage is Scottish, so something I take ancestral, familial pride in​.

Called a "Yowie" in Aussie land, something I was actually unaware of before checking over the wiki link.

 

Sure the Ghillie suit involves using local plant life weaved into a shroud to disrupt the human outline. However, animal skins and parts can serve the same affect.

In Wurm, something craftable as a ghillie suit can help one stealthing, or just add stealth bonuses to animal-part clothing already ingame.

 

 EDIT: One might even have to craft different suits or rather modify a suit with foliage for certain areas. With animal skins, wild-life may even react differently depending on what is worn.
 

Granted the Scottish Ghillie suit dates back to 1700-1800s; however, the basic idea of using animal skins or plant life to disrupt the human outline is hardly a new concept:
