The first has a club. She's been bashing away at rats in the towers. Making progress, asking questions, getting advice and guidance. She seem to be genuinely enjoying the game. I gave her a raw SS and let her know to speak with a FM when she sees one and they'd put her on the path to a full SS. She understood it would be expensive, yet appeared willing to work toward it.
The second (Arindal transplant) was given a SS, clothing, berries and coin to dye the clothing, then to change it into a shirt. They were given a rapier. This player has spent the bulk of his time in town center asking for handouts. They have this much "wealth" yet did not know (until I showed him) the first thing about how to get coins for himself. He wanted to be able to hit ferals, yet had not stepped foot into the south forest, much less know what kind of critters were in that direction of TC. Even after showing him how to train with skea, and telling him how he could begin accumulating coins in the south he spent most of his time simply sitting in town wondering where the next handout would come from. He stated that he's waiting to jump into Cammies mid-level hunt.
These are two extremes, but are both true ongoing examples in-game.
Agreed, however there is no reason to foster such.Talin wrote:Most noobs I meet are not beggars, and leechers.
