Talk:A beginner's guide to Icemule Trace

Are genuinely new players going to drop anywhere but IMT, TV or WL? Do we even need starter guides for the other towns? I incorporated the Mentor guide as previously posted, but kept GOAT's sections. You can see in the hunting section the paragraph marked GOAT's submission, which was marked because it is a bit repetitive from the Mentor guide, but not without value. Some issues in bold in the section below. VANKRASN39 (talk) 12:09, 8 February 2015 (CST)

It's a fair question, which I premised on the theory that there may be a minority who sign up and just automatically go with Premium because, "Why play if you don't get the delux package?" and that meant they could choose the other towns. I concede the likelihood of this is in the minority and the need not as great as the three above.GS4-SCRIBES (talk) 13:33, 8 February 2015 (CST)

Where do I go to find help?

Town Center is where adventurer's tend to congregate between hunts. That's where to head to find healers, lockpickers (aren't these found at the well? should the SERVICE verb be pointed out?), and the like.

Icemule connects to all other major towns via a single trail a bit south of South Gate. That trail is quite dangerous, with creatures ranging from manageable level 1 kobolds to level 38 frost giants. If an inexperienced adventurer catches the attention of the tougher creatures on the trail, it is likely to result in death. Every new character gens with a Travel Token, perhaps advising toward using that would be better.

The nearest major city is Wehnimer's Landing, which also contains a large number of hunting grounds for new adventurers.
