Take the dagger and carve "Jeff + Dryad = 4ever" in the tree.

+1, would be better if we had her name, try to recall if she ever mentioned it or even spoke at all.

+1, We could write more than that, if we felt spiteful and rejected.

Time to break down and cry?
We are 17, homeless, dumped by a hot(?) tree woman, haven't dealt with our feelings in satisfactory way (failed to burn her home down), I think we should wallow in self pity and stroke the tree, because it reminds us of her barky skin.

Lol, as fun as it would be to GENUFLECT (OMGWTFOTL) to a tree, it's not that bad.

We could have ended up like this poor sod

Perhaps find the fantasy equivalent of a stereo (a bard?), throw a rock at the tree, and hold the "stereo" over our head, wait for a response? She already threw our clothes out, seems like the natural thing to do.  :P

Well now that we've gotten clothed and taken inventory we should check the time of day.

If it's early morning we should set out looking for a trail, road, or sign of civilization

If it's noon or after-noon we should probably just hunker down and try to build some shelter and a fire

You walk back to the Dryad's tree, reflecting on your time together. Yeah, she is pretty hot. Things just turned sour, she got bored, there were petulant little arguments.

You pick up the dagger and sheathe it, and strap on the belt. It keeps the fur cloak wrapped more tightly around you, like a poncho. It's a really nice cloak, white fur on the outside and quilted red cloth lining on the inside. It's big enough to use as a blanket if you curl up.

The dagger fits nicely in the sheath, and its workmanship is similar. Probably a matched set. It's a bit worn and scuffed, and plain, but has a good edge and point. The handle is wrapped in black leather cord, which matches the sheath, but the belt is hard boiled brown leather with a dull silvery plain square buckle.

You walk up and gaze up at the tree, its branches waving as is slowly creaks side to side in the wind. You pull out your dagger and carve "Jeff + " and stop. You never really caught her name. You complete the carving "Jeff + Dryad = 4ever" deep into the bark. As you step back and admire your handiwork, the letters begin to ooze bright red blood. The tree makes a long series of creaking and snapping sounds, then ominously stops.

You're beside the Dryad's tree. You can't determine the time of day - it's daytime, overcast, breezy, and cold. You can't see where the sun is in the sky. A mist hangs among the trees.

There is a floppy boot here.

Examine Boot, then go climb some other tree to get a look around from a higher vantage point.

+1 To climbing the tree to look around
-1 To setting up camp right away. If there is no civilization, travel for an hour first just to put a bit of distance between you and her. Then set up camp.

Cover your genitalia with some tied together leafs so you don't embarass yourself. Then climb the tree to look. Depending on the time spent set up camp or move towards civilization or alternatively to a river, if a town is nowhere to be found.

Not content to simply take the boot, you examine it. The upper part is well-worn leather, and the sole is newer hard leather. This boot has probably beed repaired by a cobbler at least once. It's also much too big for you. You wonder whose it is, and just how many your Dryad snared before you.

Suddenly cautious about displaying your manhood, you rig up a leafy patch to hang from the front of your belt. Your fur cloak does extend about halfway down your thighs.

Bidding your lost love farewell, you walk away from the Dryad's tree and pick another tree with low branches. Though the tree is moss-covered and slippery with mist you manage to get up some distance for a good look around.

You're on a gentle slope covered in forest. Mist swirls around the trees with patches of denser fog, and higher up it transitions into wisps of fog and then up into clouds. Far to the west are hints of a steepening of the land and possibly mountains. It's hard to tell with the fog. To the east, downslope, the land disappears into fog completely. South you see the top of a barn quite some distance away. North you spot a slash through the trees cutting all the way west to east - but you can't tell what's below the treetops, only that there's a gap in the trees.

So we potentially have people to the north, and definitely have people to the south. I assume the south is further away than the north is so either we take a risk heading north or go the safe way and head south even though it's farther away...

Head south

Edit: Fridge logic here, how the hell do we know which way is south if we cant see the sun or stars?

Climb down, search for a strong stick, and a sharp rock. Walk in direction of the barn while cutting the stick into a spear.
