Thank you for the quick response. I will start with the scavenger hunt.
It would be nice to have some sort of information presented in the starting room, detailing options for what new players could do first. Something like a flyer announcing the scavenger hunt, for example. If there is already, I totally missed it.
After the scavenger hunt though, how do people typically get quests to do? I understand this is a socially-focused game, but it is possible to play single-player? You mentioned automated quests, does that mean the game requires GM-controlled NPCs to initiate quests?
I will probably be playing during the day, until the afternoon. Mountain time zone.
