I hear you bro. I hate this waiting.
I had just found myself a nice plot of land, renovated it due to it having had a nearly completely (but not quite) torn down wall, with only small sections here & there that direly needed repairing.
anyway, no sooner then I have that all fixed, rebuilt, all the stuff inside fixed up, the area scouted out, and a basic leather production going again (new character. benefit of LP sure, but new character), and now I finally have a new backpack...
but that'll all be lost due to new world. so stopped playing until then, apart from having made a test character to try remind myself what its really like starting fresh and having no help at all. seeing what technique gets me the furthest in:
-Space used, I'm going to need a settlement after all and I'll need it to be space effective, especially while everyone is going to be around the central supergrids.
-LP gained, because of course I'm going to want to level up as fast as I can to get the skills I desire sooner rather then later (read as: Yeomanry for pally, farming for trade/food)
-What equipment I'm going to want to keep, what I'm going to wanna drop ASAP or not even pick up.
because yes I'm new enough, but I started off with some basic help from a friend, who gave me basic education, a bone for bonesaw eventually, and taught me the absolute basics.
This time around I'm starting clean fresh, no stock-piles of food, no containers, no wooden plough or nuttin.
so it'll be nice.
